One of my favorite quirks of American politics is that this little burg gets its results in first. After a long stretch of backing the Republican (at least since the ’80s), the Notch comes in for Obamanaia: 15-6, Our Savior* over McNasty.**
* This term used with what I hope will be recognizably maximal irony.
** The nickname borrowed not for purposes of the campaign, but from McCain’s fellow students at the Naval Academy. Look it up.
