The other primaries

The Democrats are also running primary races, not that you would know.

Obama only got 81% of the democratic vote in New Hampshire, after being given a close contest by amongst others a guy called Vermin Supreme, who is remarkably like Penny Bright but humorous. He appears to be the democratic equivalent of Newt, or is it Rick, or the other Rick?

I love the policy of Free Ponies for All Americans.
