Peace Breaks Out @ NH Polls!

Yes, the 2016 campaign is shaping up to be one of the more negative campaigns in recent memory.  But a funny thing happens on Election Day; fierce opponents have but one common objective: voting.  Here is a sample of conversations overheard on Election Day in New Hampshire which will give you a new level of hope.


Citizen Cruz? Conservative Birther Summit on Natural Born Citizenship

Andy Martin is a prominent Birther who was a leading critic of President Obama’s eligibility to be President of the United States because he questioned whether Obama was a natural-born citizen. Now, he is holding a “Ted Cruz Birther Summit’ for three days before the Iowa caucus. If Martin can get media coverage for this event, it will improve Donald Trump’s chance at winning the Iowa caucus.

Trump Campaign Bus (with stripper pole) now used to protest Trump

Donald Trump’s campaign bus used in Iowa during the summer of 2015 was originally a “party bus” rented out to the public. That is why it has a stripper pole in it, when Donald rode in the bus. The bus was sold and artist’s David Gleeson and Mary Mihelic bought it and repurposed it as a rolling protest of Donald Trump. They are traveling to the early Primary states to raise awareness and protest to the prospect of Donald Trump becoming President of the Unite States.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog Kicked Out of GOP Event for New Hampshire Primary

Comedian Robert Smigel and his puppet, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, wanted to share in the spirit of American Democracy by poking a little fun at Presidential Election politics. But their noble effort clashed with those who wanted to make sure the railroad (or in this case, a multi-candidate event called the First In The Nation Forum Presidential Town Hall, sponsored by the New Hampshire Republican Party, for voters in the February 9, 2016 New Hampshire Primary) ran on time. (From Wikipedia) Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog is a character puppet puppeteered and voiced by Robert Smigel, best known for mocking celebrities. Triumph was identified in the early appearances as a Yugoslavian Mountain Hound, hence his distinct Eastern European accent[2] (although Triumph himself insists it is a regular “dog accent”[3]). As his name indicates, Triumph’s comedic style is almost exclusively insult comedy. Triumph often puffs a cigar, which usually falls out of his mouth when he starts talking. He debuted in 1997 on NBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien and also appeared on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien from time to time, as well as the short-lived TV Funhouse, TBS’s Conan, and Adult Swim’s The Jack and Triumph Show.

PACs’ and Campaigns’ “Un”Coordinated Ground Game

It is a well-known secret that candidates’ Political Action Committees and their National Campaign organizations use huge loopholes and creativity to be in sync. In 2016, this dance to not legally coordinate but somehow act in unison is being played out in local campaign field activities. Like the dance going on at the national level, this video documents some of the absurd ways that campaigns and PACs behave.

Bernie Sanders’ college plan rallies student volunteers

Speaking at a rally in Concord, New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders talks about the importance of an educated work force and the need for every American to have some kind of education past the 12th grade. He proposes free tuition to all public colleges in the US. Sam Long and Austin Brown are two New Hampshire students, who are concerned about how they will afford college and support Bernie’s college plan. Sam and Austin are volunteering for Bernie by making phone calls and canvasing voters. Austin says that volunteering for Bernie Sanders is “one of the best feelings in the world.”
