Republicans as a party, the establishment variety in particular, are like awkward children of privilege who get upset when their money isn’t enough to make them popular. They stamp their feet and whine, even threaten. How dare you this, you’ll rue the day that. It’s all very annoying. But more than a few Republicans fall […]

A Bump On The Road To Unity – Unity of what?

by Skip January 30, 2013

Again, Steve’s post on NH GOP’s mistrust of bloggers and unity ignited a bunch of thoughts – and realized I had gone long (even for me).  So consider this Part II of mine from his Part I.  On Unity – or more properly put – the false sense of Unity that some in the NH […]

Facebook Doodlings – So, Greg Carson, Secretary of the NH GOP is demanding “unity” – Part I?

by Skip November 19, 2012

And yes, once again, I decide to weigh in.  His opening remark – well, I can’t quote it from FB because he decided to take himself out of the thread and erased all traces of himself, but it started with someone asking the simple question of “Who for Republican Minority Leader in the NH House?”.
