New Hampshire Primary Open Thread

Where new hamsters come from


Most of the polls are closed, the rest will be closing soon.

Does it really matter who wins? The GOP establishment has made their pick, the rest is just a formality.

In other news, the Oakland Raider’s new general manager, Reggie McKenzie, fired head coach Hugh Jackson. The coaching staff is about the only place they can make any changes. The Raiders don’t have any draft picks this year so they’re stuck with the current roster unless then can make trades or sign free agents.

I picked a bad year to quit huffing paint.

    Not that long ago I thought the GOP primaries would be entertaining to watch.

    That prediction hasn’t worked out so well.

      Just wait for the $2 Billion Spectacularitygasm known as the General Election.

      For that money they better have a Laser Light Show and Reunite the Beatles (the Messiah should have no problem raising only half the dead required).

      I wanna see someone get their money’s worth (although I’m sure plenty o’ wall streeters will get that after the elections)

      My Cynic-O-Meter is running on full power btw.

    wait for Virginia, a judge will decide who goes on the ballot.

    the GDP and the US debt are just about equal now. Backtrack is going to ask for a raise in the debt ceiling.

    Shocker – CNN predicts Romney win

    There’s still entertainment to be had. Remember Steve Schmidt? He’s the guy who ran the McCain campaign and tried to pin the loss on Sarah Palin being dumb. Like all failed Republicans, he had to end up working for MSNBC instead of Fox.

    The tables have pretty much turned on him. He may have been a media darling when he was trashing Palin, but he’s still a Republican. Maddow, Dead Shultz, Crazy Larry, Tweety and Rev. Al have all been taking pieces out of him tonight.

    Predictably, now that Romney is a shoo-in, they have all turned on Romney for implying that Obama is foreign (European-style socialism) and basically saying Obama is the bestest president because he passed Heritage Foundation health care and his foreign policy consists of killing dictators who bother him.

    • DandyTiger says:

      Hahaha. Good to hear. I have no sympathy for that asswipe Schmidty.

      As for the rest of the clowns at MSNBC, I’m finding it really fun to watch these days. They’re so crazy over the top that they’ve landed face first in crazy funny land.

  6. DandyTiger says:

    This is just a bad dream and I’m going to wake up, right?

  7. Is that for show only Republican primary race still going on? Don’t they know the establishment selected Romney already?

    Results for New Hampshire Republican Primary (U.S. Presidential Primary)
    Jan 10, 2012 (46% of precincts reporting)

    Mitt Romney 34,210 37.1%
    Ron Paul 21,667 23.5%
    Jon Huntsman 15,729 17.1%
    Newt Gingrich 9,186 10%
    Rick Santorum 9,112 9.9%

    Huntsman is having a good night. Newt might drop to 5th place

  9. Ron Paul just gave a fantastic speech.

  10. Looking at the numbers on both sides of the aisle, with 73% reporting, Obama is behind both Mitt Romney and Ron Paul and less than 5000 votes ahead of Huntsman.

    Obama has 82 percent of the Democratic vote, with 10% going to Write-In, and the remaining eight percent unaccounted for but most likely split among the 13 unknown Dem challengers.

    The big story out of Nude Hamster tonight is not who won, but how few Republicans bothered to vote. While it was a record high turnout for independents voting in the Republican primary, much of the base stayed home. That may mean that Romney will draw independent voters in the general, but it may also mean that Romney will not have the enthusiastic support needed from the rank and file of his party to run a winning campaign.
