Oops! Iowa Republicans Can’t Finalize Their Election & Perry Endorses Gingrich, Who’s Ex Said Wanted An Open Marriage

It was a wacky day today in politics. Newt Gringrich’s second wife said he wanted an open relationship, the same day Rick Perry dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Gingrich. But wait there is more.. the Iowa Republican party says Satorum now leads the caucuses by 34 votes but they lost some ballots and can’t determine who won their January 3rd election….. no really… No really… I am not kidding.
