NH GOP revives campaign fight song tradition

There is one (and only one) good thing I can say for the Republicans running in the various 2014 campaigns here in New Hampshire. They are reviving a political tradition which has gone by the wayside: the campaign fight song.

US Senate Intel Committee Flip-Flops

The requirement that the President make an annual accounting of how many drones were dispatched to perpetrate assassinations of suspected malefactors around the globe by remote control.

Notorious.

If that’s what he wants to be, notorious, Scott Brown is on the right track. Now he’s got folks way down south in Louisiana making fun of the fact that he can’t tell the difference between Massachusetts, where he got his political credits, and New Hampshire, where he’s got a summer house.
