Do we realize the impact of these primary-date debates? Folks could be voting in early December. I get peeved when I see Christmas décor before Halloween. My 2 ½ year-old was oohing and ahhhing over the pretty trees in Kohl’s Department Store last Friday October 11th—“Bahh!” But a New Hampshire primary on December 11th? Are they crazy? I haven’t yet digested my Thanksgiving turkey. Never mind gone shopping for Christmas presents. I am the kind of guy running into a gas station at 11:55 PM Christmas Eve scrambling to buy my wife some windshield wipers and a case of air fresheners for Christmas because I procrastinated all year, and they want me to think about my ’08 election choice during the ’07 Christmas season—“humbug!”.
Apparently, this 16-term New Hampshire secretary of state, Bill Gardner, politically holds the same power a Greenspan used to hold with the financial market. Gardener must watch ever verb, split-infinitive, and dangling preposition because he holds much power to what some call “Blue Hampshire”.
This is indeed Good News for Hillary. They have manipulated her image well and if able to avoid that proverbial Howard Dean moment when he screeched like a hawk-in-heat, she may quietly snatch up the New Hampshire nomination like a, well…,er-uh well, a hawk-in-heat.
What does this mean for the GOP? More chaos and more scrambling and more in-fighting. The Democrats love it. Why do you think they hand out indictments like candy? They love to see us busy and they love to have that calm, slow talk like they are in control. And guess what guys…they are in control. They are in control of the House, the Senate, the Supreme Court, and just may get control of the primaries too, which ultimately helps them control the landscape of ’08.
My brethren to the religious right, I plead with you to vote the best candidate you can but support the ’08 nominee. Your pouting is only fueling a Christmas fire for a Democratic win in ’08. If you think your right-leaning voice is not heard now, just wait for what happens when Dems dominate the Beltway. New Hampshire’s motto is “Live Free or Die”—that phrase is ringing more true for me now more than ever.
