I’m here at the College Convention in Manchester, New Hampshire where Governor John Lynch just argued that the First in the Nation primary forces candidates to be authentic–um, evidence please?–and the fact that Jimmy Carter came here as a nobody and wound up President of the United States of America.
Lord, are these really the best arguments my fellow Granite Staters have for fighting tooth and nail to keep the first primary? I’d rather he argue we need the advertising revenue to rebuild our Great North trailer parks.
UPDATE: A student from Louisiana just asked Lynch if New Hampshire had any local cuisine like they have crawfish and gumbo. It should have been easy to hit this softball out of the park, but instead Lynch opted to preface his answer by asking the Louisiana contingent how man of them had experienced a hurricane. All the hands went up, obviously, and Lynch, smiling suggested they tell New Hampshire kids what hurricanes are like since Granite Staters don’t have to worry about them. Then he added his kids liked pizza, even if that wasn’t local.
Hmm…perhaps not in the best taste.
