More Importantly

All of you that are expending all of your energy on useless wailing, rending, gnashing, etc? Could you channel some of that fervor into changing the primary election rules, to make them party only, instead of open?

You know, so the democrats and independents don’t pick our candidate for us again, next time?

Great, thanks.

    Screw primaries. We did better when we had smoke-filled rooms.

    Or, ok, channel it into getting rid of primaries and going back to smoke-filled rooms.

    Anything’s better than this. The trick is getting it changed before the next one.

    Actually, the problem is, I think, that the primaries are in liberal states first- by the time they get to Indiana our hopefuls have already been chosen by the most liberal among us. How about a one day nationwide primary? Yes, it would potentially result in a second round, but who gives a crap? It’s better than the shinola we got.

    But I love useless wailing, rending, gnashing, and etc. It’s kind of my thing.

    I’ve thought for a long time that the extended primary period is foolish. Every state should have its primary on the 2nd Tuesday in May, six months before the general.

    Indiana is sensible; that’s what we already do.
