Caucusing with the Caucasians

We went to the house of the Barack Obama Precinct Captain tonight -- super nice guy named Newman Abuissa. It was a 'caucus strategy meeting but he also taught us how to make Baklava. He's from Syria, and is active in the Arab American Institute, so he got hooked up with a news crew from Al Arabiya Satellite Network, who came to our meeting. The reporter dude had an Al Arabiya baseball cap, which I really dug. Apparently they don't sell Al Arabiya merchandise yet, but I'd be one of their first customers. Love that logo!

And if you didn't have Iowa Envy before -- tomorrow Obama is back in town for a speech and he's bringing Scarlett Johansson.

Oh and today we canvassed our neighborhood for Obama and it was 5f with a steady 20mph wind. That should keep your Iowa Envy in check.
