Trouble Making Deadlines? Dems Say Just Move The Goal Posts!

Because we could all use a good laugh on the Friday following "Middle Schoolers Ramped Up on Sugar and Love Day" (a.k.a. "Valentine's Day"), the Democratic Party of New Mexico helps with a couple of gems in its "caucus" final tally press release:

"(Albuquerque, NM) Today, ahead of deadline, the Democratic Party announced the canvass results of the 2008 Democratic Caucus."

And the winner of the "Lower Your Expectations Enough and You'll Always Succeed Award" for 2008 goes to.... Meanwhile, later in the release:

"The biggest surprise of this caucus was the more than 3,500 voters---Independents, Greens and Republicans---tried to vote in the Democratic Caucus," said Chairman Brian Col� Clearly, their message to us was---they want change in this country."

That was the biggest surprise? You mean bigger than the fact it took ten days to announce the results? And maybe the message from "Independents, Greens and Republicans" was that they want an open primary, not a closed whatever the hell this train wreck was.

Thanks Democratic Party of New Mexico! I can face those post-Sweethearts candy sugar rush crash victims this morning now with a smile.

Have a good weekend everybody.
