Favorite Politicians (contemporary):  Joe Manchin, John Kasich, Brian Sandoval, Scott Walker, Andrew Cuomo, Justin Amash, Rand Paul, Heidi Heitkamp........quite the smorgasboard, I know. Tongue

You should probably leave or never mention that again.

Otherwise, most of that other stuff should allow you to fit right in.

What's so bad about Cuomo?  He seems like a pretty reasonable, moderate, pro-business Democrat.

As one of the leading lights of the Atlas Cuomo Hate Brigade, let me just go on record as saying that I'm far more disturbed that you're a fan of the Vikings and the Packers.  I mean, either one is fine but both is just wrong.


Iowa has pretty diverse NFL allegiances.  I know Packers and Vikings are often rivals, but I like both teams.  That being said, it's a lot easier to be a Packers fan right now. Smiley   Mike McCarthy is a very good coach.  
(Can't post links, but the title is "Iowa is a house divided when it comes to NFL fandom by the Ames Tribune)

As far as Cuomo goes, I hate gerrymandering, so that is too bad.   The reason I liked Cuomo was his "NY is Open for Business" ads, which made Cuomo seem like a bipartisan, pro-market kind of liberal, like Ron Wyden or Joe Manchin.  But I guess that's not true.....

"Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them.” Goldwater

Good for you. So are you in the sort of 'limbo' stage where you have to pass a bunch of certifications or something?

I wrote and directed a two hour movie. It's about an intern, a doctor, a mayor, a cross dressing prostitute, farmers, aliens, and zombies:
