"I think I might come here and buy a farm."
The gracious Donald Trump showed up tonight. He loves Iowans. He congratulates the others. He loves New Hampshire and South Carolina.
His wife looks gorgeous. His sons are on hand, they've been in Iowa giving speeches. I think Ivanka was on the left with her husband but I was typing and didn't really see. (Corrected: His daughter with Marla Trump is not Vanessa but Tiffany. So I have no idea who the blond was with his sons.)
Trump says he will get the Republican nomination and beat Hillary or Bernie or "whoever the hell they throw up."

The Carter Justice Dept. ordered the local FBI station to drop everything else and solve the crime, an order which did not sit well with the Resident Agent, himself an anti-abortion zealot.
He came up with a theory which would justify his continuing surveillance of the local lefties, that the bombing had either been a ploy for fundraising, or the result of a lovers' spat, theories which he kept planting in the local press.
He proceeded to stalk my friend Steve Wilson (later changed his name to Jackson Clubb, who posted at kos as MadCityRag until his death a month ago) grilling his neighbors, etc. Jackson at the time was dating an employee of the clinic.
The firebombing was never officially solved. No charges were filed against Jack, probably because the US Attorney wasn't buying the FBI agent's crap.

Last week I implored Barack Obama to step up on Iraq.
On Wednesday of this week, he will be doing just that.
Context and what to look for below the fold.
