    New Hampshire? Isn’t that some piddlin little state up north somewhere?

    And, as always, there are polls and then there are polls.

    So Iowa goes to the biggest nut, presumably Bachman unless Palin gets in.

    Then Romney takes New Hampshire.

    Then it will go to South Carolina (assuming they win the ‘me first’ race with Nevada,) where they’ll be looking to vote for the biggest a$shole, which could be Newt, could be Rudy if he gets in.

    Nevada? Who cares? It’s cocktail waitresses and pit bosses. But also Mormons. So Romney.

    Romney’s money plus an inoculating win in NH and NV carries him into the actual states where he confronts the awesome might of Pawlenty.

    Kind of have to bet on Romney, don’t you?

    Yeah, New Hampshire is way up north somewhere. Far from the Mason Dixon line and in the 21st century. No true Republicans there.

    @Patrick T. McGuire: A Cain fan, are you? How do you feel about this?

    I don’t really think it’s that huge a deal to mix-up a quote between the Constitution and the Declaration… unless you do so in the middle of lecturing people that they don’t know the Constitution.

    Right concept, wrong document. But I like the message. Does that answer your question?

    No. I asked about Cain. How do you feel about a guy who is lecturing other people on the Constitution while quoting from a different document?
