As the year of eternal campaigning rolls ever onward, we were greeted this week with the shining, happy news that the first primary may come in December of 2007.
Seriously, I heard a promise of this yesterday on NPR in a preliminary story, and even today it isn't in the least the last word in this stupid, ignorant, desparate attempt by a number of states to push earlier and earlier toward dropping ballots in the month of December rather than waiting until at least late January.
This is absolutely nuts...freakin' crazy...stupid, dumb, and asinine.
Somebody has to be first. You can't all possibly be first, you morons.
And in a related issue, I am already tired of the aparently eternal campaigning for the primaries. The official announcements appeared this year nearly a year before the first primary (whenever the heck that turns out to be), and I'm bored.
On a related note, I've heard that the Evendale Fraternal Order of Waterbuffalo will be holding their GOP candidate debate (supposedly to be attended by seven of the eight front-runners for the GOP nomination) in two weeks. Get your tickets early, folks, as it'll be one of only 239,323 candidate debates this year.
