    It's nice to know you think so much of us to know what fine establishments we have here. Now if you'd kindly get your head outta your ass for a moment.

    I KNOW many people involved in politics are in this area. I KNOW they blog. Whatever your beef is with someone citing their viewpoint about their own backyard simply get over yourself!

    And by the way, there "are" other times we "congregate" in this little town, but of course you don't look that deep. There are the regular Selectman meetings which are boring as hell, the Old Home Day which has a better fourth of July than most areas, the Memorial Day and Veteran's parades, and of course the kids drag us out to Scout meetings constantly. The problem is that these types of things are where townsfolk get together to be together as a town. It's not a corner pub where everyone pops in and can take a measure of our politics. It's not a Hair Salon where you can ask women their view on politics. You have to live in one of these towns to meet and talk to these people. And "if" you knew anything about New Hampshire beyond Route 106 you would "know" that.

    I wrote this entry just to let you know what I observed when I worked all day at the Loudon Town Hall talking to people that came to vote in our Primary. If you can't deal with a firsthand observation of things then just turn on the Political Wonks on Faux News to find out about what happened in New Hampshire for yourself.

      "Shit, I guess I can't pull the 'you don't know New Hampshire, only I do' bullshit out on some of these people, but instead of admit I've been had, I'll just attack and make myself look even more the jackass."  

      The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

        No problem. And as always "No offense was intended!"

        It's all politics in the end!

    •  The point he was making, (0+ / 0-)

      apparently a bit too subtly for you, is that you were condescending to people who also know about the area. Don't pull this "I'm on the ground here and I know more than you so shut up and listen to me" bullshit unless you're willing to have it jammed back in your face occasionally.
