Stay Classy

An unsolicited piece of advice - If you ever find yourself trying to express the proper balance of sympathy and antipathy, stop. There is no such thing, and you're about to make yourself look like a prick.

Teenage Celebrities

Politics may be full of wannabe actors, but this is silly:

One minute, you're a media darling.
The next, you're arrested at a party and it makes the papers.

Random New Hampshire Thought

I'm sure that someone will examine this in the exit poll data, but in the absence of that evidence, take a little walk with me...

A) Independent voters were supposed to be good for both McCain and Obama
B) McCain and Romney were polling neck-and-neck coming into today
C) Obama was at 6-10 points up and climbing going into today

If I'm an independent NH voter, and I fit the stereotype, my dream matchup is McCain/Obama. When I go into the polling place today, and I have to pick a ballot, do I want a Dem ballot, so I can help Obama cruise to a big victory, or do I want a GOP ballot, so I can help McCain eke out a squeaker?

Perhaps the vaunted NH Unaffiliateds outsmarted themselves.
