Michael took the stage at the lovely Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center in Cedar Falls, IA.  He got the lay of the Iowa land from Des Moines Register columnist Kyle Munson.  University of Northern Iowa professor of Political Science, Chris Larimer, chatted voting behaviors with Michael and outlined Iowa's unique role in politics.  Joe and Vicki Price fired up the stage with some smokin' hot blues and Ian Goldsmith of YouTube fame brought the crowd to its feet teaching them how to "Interlude"!  It was enough to make you hungry for a loose meat sandwich!
