EXTRA: Ha, ha!!!

Be honest. When you first learned that not only did Donald Trump fail to win the Iowa caucus, he came within one percentage point of finishing third, what likely popped into your mind was the image of The Simpsons' Nelson Muntz.

Or at least that sarcastic laugh he directs at anyone worthy of ridicule.

ALTHOUGH THE REAL joke may well be on anybody who thinks the Republican Party is capable of nominating a Latino to run for president, without the experience turning totally ugly.

As for the Democratic side and would-be nominee Hillary Clinton, she probably needs to be the target of the laugh as well -- for as little of a victory margin as she pulled off against Bernie Sanders of Vermont who now gets to move on to the New Hampshire primary that he could win because he's from a neighboring state.

All I know is it's six more weeks until our own state's Illinois primaries, and I don't have a clue who I will cast a ballot for come March 15.
