A Month Til C-Day

Listen to this 'Talk of the Nation' topic

Let's play a game, OK? I'll yell out a word, and you yell out the first word that comes to mind upon hearing my prompt. Easy, right? Here we go. IOWA! Did you yell caucus? It's a pretty safe bet you did (unless you yelled Hawkeyes! And I wouldn't blame you, college-athletics fan that I am). The Iowa caucus is such a big deal that it's now the subject of a political musical that charts the fate of a farmer caught up in the whirlwind of caucus season. In the midst of all the serious angling, positioning, hand-shaking, diner-dining that goes on in the run-up to January, Caucus! The Musical sounds like a welcome way to laugh at the whole fiasco.
