Reporters In Iowa Are Losing Their Minds

by Ken Layne

Ice, buses, John Edwards, coffee shops, ethanol, farmers, ice, darkness … is it any wonder the national press corps is having a group nervous breakdown in Iowa? Here are some grim blind-item examples of people with broken hearts and broken minds:

* A “major photographer” went berserk on a hapless hotel bellboy.
* All the gay reporters are picking up gay people at a gay bar called “The Blazing Saddle.”
* There is some kind of fisting going on in John Edwards’ bus toilet.
* Some loser reporter from a second-tier paper is stuck in Iowa without an expense budget.
