Richardson Scores Points With Humorous Comment

When I first read the following comment by Bill Richardson, I thought it was pretty funny.

Iowa, for good reason, for constitutional reasons, for reasons related to the Lord, should be the first caucus and primary.
Richardson has gotten a lot of flak over the comment in the Blogosphere, especially from Kos. Richardson replied, honestly, by saying he was just trying to score points.
That was an off-the-cuff comment about the importance of Iowa. This was an Iowa crowd — I'm trying to score points, I'm moving up in the polls. So I don't consider that a mistake — that was an off-the-cuff comment, and I stand very strongly behind the fact that Iowa and New Hampshire should be first.
As an Iowan, consider your points scored. I appreciate the humor and the attempt to lighten things up considering how ludicrous the nominating schedule has become. I think we all should lighten up and play the game instead of bickering about the rules.
