I never thought I would say this, but right now I am just so burnt out on politics I didn’t even watch the NH Primary coverage. I see that Kerry won by large numbers, so here is my quick take on the candidates so far:
1.) Kerry– He won by a convincing margin, so congratulations are in order. I would post some of he things I don’t like about him, but it is so hard to take shots at him while he looks so cozy wrapped up in the American flag. Did you know that he was a VietNam veteran?
2.) Dean– Despite losing his second primary in a row, the Dean camp declared victory. I guess this is good news for the Panthers and the Patriots, who meet Sunday in the Super Bowl. Guess what, guys! No matter the outcome, you are both winners.
3.) Edwards– Probably the best candidate in the race right now, he seems to still be tied with Clark for third place. Edwards’s staple stump speech for the past month has been the ‘Two Americas’ schtick that seems to impress everyone so much. If he intends to be the Democratic nominee in 2004, one of these Americas better start voting for him. I guess he can take some consolation in the fact that if he does pull this out in the long run, the Northern Democrats will vote for a southerner in the General Election (see Clinton, Bill). The real trick will be for Kerry to get the south to vote for him, should he win.
4.) Clark– DOA. Skipped the Iowa cacus, and the best he could do is come in third or tied for third (or perhaps fourth- the numbers are not in yet). This guy is a loser, a crackpot, and a liar, and even with the Clinton lackeys (including the despicable Chris Lehane) and money machine, he is coming up short. Also, I have noticed he looks remarkably similar to someone from the past. You make the call:
Heaven’s Gate Leader Marshall Applewhite
Democratic Presidential candidate Wesley Clark
Both of these men, I might note, are not going to take their followers anywhere.
5.) Al Sharpton– It says alot about the Democratic party that this race-baiting huckster is even allowed on stage, let alone taken seriously. Unfortunately, none of what it says about Democrats is any good. Therefore, I officially endorse Al Sharpton.
6.) Dennis Kucinich– Think of someone with as much chance as Al Sharpton to become the next President, but think skinny, white, and vegan.
Thus concludes my NH Primary Coverage for 2004.
*** Update ***
It has been brought to my attention that I forgot to mention Joe Lieberman. I guess I share something in common with the voters of New Hampshire.
