See, this is what happens when “John”:http://home.gwu.edu/~jsides/ goes on vacation – I feel compelled to start making “graphs about American politics”:http://themonkeycage.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Iowa_Straw_Poll.png, and next thing I know the heavyweights are critiquing them (positively “here”:http://pollsandvotes.com/PaV/?p=139 and somewhat less so “here”:http://fivethirtyeight.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/08/15/is-iowa-irrelevant/ and “here”:http://plainblogaboutpolitics.blogspot.com/2011/08/ames-and-pawlenty.html).

At times like this, somewhat like “Rick Perry”:http://www.nationaljournal.com/politics/perry-pray-for-obama-20110806, I prefer to turn to a higher authority: cartoonists. Without further ado, official Monkey Cage cartoonist “Ted McCagg”:http://tedmccagg.typepad.com/ on “Things We Learned from the Iowa Straw Poll”:http://tedmccagg.typepad.com/drawings/2011/08/things-we-learned-in-the-iowa-straw-poll.html:
