Hicksville speaks

Well, the New Hampshire primary has begun. Every year, there's one pissant little hillbilly town that holds its primary at midnight and all 18 of the town's residents gather together to cast their ballots. Welcome to the spectacle that is Dixville Notch. If you click on the link you can see how the votes have turned out in past years. They might not be very prophetic yokels, but at least after the voting I hear there's a hoedown and they burn all the reporters not fleet enough of foot to escape.

So how did it turn out this year?

Democratic Primary: (10 voters)

* Barack Obama - 7
* John Edwards - 2
* Bill Richardson - 1
* Hillary Clinton - 0

Republican Primary: (8 voters)

* John McCain - 4
* Mitt Romney - 2
* Rudy Giuliani - 2
* Mike Huckabee - 0

Believe it or not, 18 is actually 100% of the residents voting. When I said this was a pissant podunk, I wasn't kidding. They probably have to import daylight by pack mule.

Anyway, it looks like things aren't going well for poor, poor, Hillary. Maybe if she squeezes out a few more tears, she can at least pick up a bonus sympathy vote. You have to sort of feel sorry for her though, if you think about it. Here she planned and schemed and plotted, biding her time and putting together this run for president that was over a decade in the making. She lined up the big wigs, she raised huge amounts of cash, she did everything she was supposed to.....then out of the blue some uppity junior senator pops out of nowhere and beats all her plans to hell. Now, she can't even unload and really go negative on his ass because he's black and preaching hope. That's always been plan A in the book of Clinton politics, all the while screaming about the politics of personal destruction, and she must be lost not being able to use it. Man, it's like God himself has popped down to kick Hillary in the face. The best laid plans....
