Caucussing

Here's what I understand to be the rules for my caucus next Saturday:

We have twenty minutes to split ourselves up, and then the chairman has half an hour to count us. If your candidate isn't viable, you have another twenty minutes to split up again. (I don't know what constitutes "viability" yet; probably some minimum percentage of the total is the standard.)

But, really, how long does it take to go stand in a corner? Not twenty minutes. So I guess that time is spent wrassling, coming to fistacuffs, and demanding satisfaction, all events that seem as appropriate for 2008 as a caucus.

Rest assured, I'll report back after I caucus.
