    Early tea leaf that he's running again in 2014 and fears Bob Vander Plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaats? Or is he just that big of a dickbag?

        he's pretty much the Mitt Romney of Iowa, and has a fauxderate reputation stemming from that. Back during the first time he was governor, it got him a primary challenge from then-Rep. (and former actor) Fred Grandy.

          being sarcastic rather. but yeah, I don't think anyone on DKE has claimed he is - but I get the impression that some in Iowa grant him that label unfairly.
