Why are Republicans in Iowa more important than those of us say in...New Mexico, or Colorado, or Oklahoma, or Georgia, or New Jersey?
It makes a thinking person who does not live in one of those spoiled brat early primary states start to ask a few questions.
- Why do we allow it to continue?
- When the RNC gets together, do our state delegates not have the courage to pull the plug on this pandering which is an insult to the rest of the nation?
- Why are some voters more important than others?
- Why are the people in Iowa and New Hampshire more important that anyone else?
The other day there were alleged remarks made, by alleged Iowa Republicans, who were annoyed that Michele Bachmann was actually doing her job as a member of Congress. She was unable to meet with a select group of them to pander to them. There were snarky comments that she would need to do better if she wanted their votes.
Such things make a person who lives in New Mexico wonder just what is required in the bratty early primary/caucus states. What are candidates to do in Iowa and New Hampshire? Must they move in with voters, do their dishes, empty their cat boxes, walk their dogs? It sure sounds like that is what the spoiled brats are once again crying about, as usual.
People in New Hampshire require that candidates sing their specific little song, tap dancing around their agenda, meeting and greeting, pressing the flesh, glad handing, etc. They say that a candidate must really work New Hampshire to win their few pathetic votes, and all the attention that comes once it is all over. If you don't do as they demand, well, you just don't get their sainted vote. After all, they are in New Hampshire, and primary voters in New Hampshire are far more important than primary voters who don't even go to the polls in late May or June.
