With the Iowa Caucus coming up it may be too late for Washington to jockey for poll position in this contest. But with our legislature in special session and not really doing anything about the budget, I say let the legislators loose. While a few legislators from a few committees from both houses and the Governor’s budget people figure out what’s going to happen, the rest of the legislators can do useless crap.
I say hold a primary early next month, but call it the first in the nation contest for 2016. Sure, it’s a little strange, to have the 2016 contest before the 2012 one, but we’re having them earlier and earlier, so they were going to catch up eventually. And it’s no stranger than giving Iowa and New Hampshire the first in the nation status.
