Dixville Notch to pundits: “Wilder? Who’s he?”

Dixville Notch is in, and in the secrecy of the polling booth all those white folks didn’t have any trouble actually pulling the lever for the black guy.


George W. Bush – 21

Albert A. Gore Jr. – 5

Ralph Nader – 1


George W. Bush – 19

John Kerry – 7


Barack Obama – 15

John McCain – 6

McCain carried Dixville Notch in the Republican primary.

No Democratic Presidential candidate has carried Dixville Notch since HHH beat Nixon 13-11 in 1968. Obama’s 15 votes seems to be the all-time Democratic record.

Brethren and sistern, verily I say unto you:

surely a landslide cometh, and it will bury

all the filth of McCain and all the bile of Palin:

yea, the GOP entire, with the rottenness thereof.

Update Now Hart’s Location is in: 17 Obama, 10 McCain, 2 Ron Paul. Bush beat Kerry there, 16-14.
