‘Live free or die’ juxtaposed with ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend.’ That is the episode for this upcoming weekend of great expectations, which can’t possibly live up to its billing… or can it? Political Hollywood has reached a new low in their quest in the ratings war.
On the only serious note going into this New Hampshire Primary weekend, the Republican candidates will have two more occasions to make their case before the Granite state electorate. That’s it; from here on in it becomes reality show fodder. Regardless, in the event this is not some sick Hollywood joke, here goes.
The “Live Free or Die” motto, which many have come to admire, will be represented by the constituents of the Great State of New Hampshire. Based on the overtones of the McCain endorsement rally of Romney, it seems as though they were hardly amused. In fact, they seemed rather harsh, even unrelentingly brutal at times.
This bodes for an interesting dynamic, given Mr. Romney is a 30 point favorite going into the weekend. Which is a wonderful time to segue way to the ensuing battle, the main event of the weekend festivities; Taken straight from the pages of a Vince McMahon WWF Pay Per View TV ad.
Newt has vowed to take the gloves off in his attack vs. Mitt. So, in this classic rendition of the enemy of my enemy is my friend, bet on ‘Newtron Bomb’ Newt in the second round by knockout over Mitt ‘Moneybags’ Romney .

The media will play its role; vetting Santorum, to find there are so many sound bites, they will have to categorize them. In case that’s not enough, the wild card, Ron Paul will be hold firm, standing diametrically opposed to his Republican colleagues on everything except a woman’s uterus.
…and if that’s still is not enough to fill the tank for a drive to New England, an added treat will be provided by The Occupy Primary Movement. They have an extensive weekend of events planned to assure a moment in time that will live free or die in infamy. We deserve the best, here it is. Enjoy the show, fellow Americans.
"Right before your eyes we pull laughter from the skies
And he laughs until he cries then he dies then he dies
Come inside the shows about to start
Guaranteed to blow your head apart
You gotta see the show
It's a dynamo
You gotta see the show
It's rock and roll"
