our own caucus
It’s just not fair that we don’t have a major political caucus here in Arkansas. Why should Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina get all this attention from the candidates while choosing who the main candidate should be? (I’d prefer there was just one big one instead of all these separate ones, but whatever.)
To resolve this issue, we held our own private caucus here at Buffet o’ Blog. Some of the staff met and conducted our own primary. Here’s the results :
On the Republican side, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee got the most votes. John McCain came in second.
On the Democratic side, it was unanimous — all got zero votes except for Hillary Clinton, who got negative votes. (I’d interpret the negative votes as “I’d vote for anybody over Hillary Clinton.”)
Chuck Norris got some write-in votes as Secretary of Defense.
There you have it. Let our results be broadcast on the major news networks and added to what’s already out there. I know our caucus was small, but our budget is nearly non-existent. If more people want to vote, they will have to donate some money to make it happen. Sorry, but with this site generating exactly zero dollars, the budget just doesn’t have much flexibility. Maybe next year we can do something bigger…
