Calling all Yanks in Ireland….

Tomorrow is the big day for Americans voting in the first stages of the Presidential election. It’s in Iowa, and voting there comes down to the strangely quaint, 18th Century confines of a Caucus: that is you declare your vote publicly. Indeed, if you are American (or even if you aren’t I guess), Richard Delevan has established the Ireland Caucus, so that denizens of our good isle can declare their intentions remotely. Voting ends at midnight our time, so that the Ireland Caucus will declare before Iowa! For a running commentary on events up to Super Tuesday, you can pick up Richard’s take on Brassneck.
