Iowa Considers Raincoat Law for Politicians.

Iowa is considering a new law that would require all politicians appearing in their state to do so in a yellow raincoat with matching yellow hoodie. "We don't want to be known as the state of perpetual presidential politicking", noted one local official who requested anonymity.

The proposed Iowa yellow raincoat law would require any politician with presidential aspirations to wear the yellow raincoat, (with matching yellow hoodie), the entire time they are in Iowa if their appearance is earlier than 18 months before the next presidential election.

"The law serves a dual purpose," another local official who also requested anonymity, explained,"Iowan's are starting to get a bit embarrassed, and annoyed, by the constant flow of presidential wannabees who come into our state four years before the next election looking for a handout, er support for their presidential run. The Raincoat law identifies a political candidate to Iowans AND it protects the candidate from the elements, you know, thrown tomatoes, lemons, oranges"...

What the anonymous local Iowa officials declined to mention is the yellow raincoat law's best feature, any politician wearing the yellow raincoat (and matching hoodie), who claims to just be passing through the state, won't win very many votes.
