Live Free or Die

So, the Senator and I had a mini-date night last night watching the New Hampshire primary returns and the victory speeches of the Republican Presidential candidates.

I know, we are weird like that.

Anyway, I quickly snatched the paper napkin out from under his cup and wrote down my thoughts at the time.

Here they are:


Ann Romney.  Wow. I like you.  You have MS.  You have five children.  After hearing your speech last night I’m convinced they need to get you out more often.

Ron Paul.  People support you because it is a cause.  People support Romney because they want to win.

Newt.  Brilliantly articulate. Visionary. I would have paid good money for a front row seat to watch you debate the president.  Had you stayed above the fray, you might have had that opportunity.

Huntsman.  I really wanted to like you.  You are balanced. Smart. Can work well with others… super gorgeous family. America likes that.  Maybe in 2016 you will have learned you can’t do this all by yourself. It takes an army of talent and volunteers to win a political campaign of this magnitude. Go find them….fast!

Santorum.  No disrespect, but I am at a loss for words.  I think my Senator likes you.  We were in a heated discussion about your politics during your speech so I have no notes. Not a big fan of the sweater vest, but I sincerely admire your wife for homeschooling seven children. The thought of that ages me.

And….that’s all she wrote…. until South Carolina, of course!  When is that one anyway?

I started this blog on a whim thinking it would be fun to write about politics while my husband served in the OK State Senate. Jury's still out on that...but, having a front row seat on the sideline of Oklahoma politics has been one big adventure.
