One of our regular commentors has no idea who Iowahawk is – clearly we owe our readers more than this. He’s the man, the Michael Yon of the Midwest, reporting on the always risky flyover territory. Like Lileks, he sends back reports, embedded in the seething ethnic enclaves. (Of coure if he’s the Michael Yon then Garrison Keillor is the Fisk.) Today, he analyzes a poll of that poorly understood group, the Lutherans.
Although a majority 87% of respondents agreed that “The world should be brought to submission under global Lutheran conquest and eternal perfect rule,” there was a great deal of disagreement on the means to accomplish it. More than 95% supported “pancake breakfasts” “popcorn fundraisers,” but support dropped to less than 80% for “cow tipping” and “T-P’ing infidel houses.” Support dropped even more dramatically for more violent means of conquest, such as “suicide bombing” (28%), “decapitation” (24%), and “running over Presbyterians with my Ski-Doo” (23%)
