In the coming days, weeks months into years I will try to make sense out of the place that Iowa has become - a place I don't recognize anymore. Maybe some of you understand - that place that was home doesn't seem like home anymore because it has been torn apart. The decline of Iowa from blue-purple-red has been coming on: it didn't happen overnight. But the rapid turn to the right - as away from the right thing to do and the political right - has turned Iowa into scorched hell scape. 

Dramatic? Maybe. But maybe you should come along and decide for yourself.

I am just going to say it: I am the one you have been waiting for.

I will tell you the truth when it is awful (or great).

I fact check everything, I cite sources, I know Iowa and you know you want to know about Iowa because 2020.

I am not Matt Taibbi or Glenn Greenwald or Chuck Todd or [insert mediocre to abhorrent white man in media here].
