Iowa Caucus

Pastor Gavin talks about his involvement with the Iowa Caucus. The caucus is an interesting political and electoral process and on one hand strikes me as a very populist event and at the same time potentially a breading ground for corruption and bullying (but come to think of it that might simply be true of democracy and populism in general).
As most of you probably now know Obama came out on top in the Democratic line up and Huckabee came out on top for the Republicans. I think this is shaping up to be an interesting Election.
Oh and he also tackles the rumors that Obama is a Muslim and/or pretending to be a Christian while secretly a Muslim, here. He links to various sources that debunk this rumor and trace out some of its history. Not that I think it should really matter whether or not he is Christian or Muslim, but it does seem to matter to many and the claim that Obama is Muslim is simply untrue.
