I learned something today. And, a few things were confirmed.
I noticed a headline in the Guardian—mind you, a British newspaper. There must have been an article, but the headline told me all I needed to know. It blared that some rich guy, one who drove to Canada with his dog in a box on the top of his car, won the “GOP Virgin Island caucus”.
First, this confirmed that even “quality” media must scrounge to fill their pages…or the merely print wire service stories without filtering.
Next, I learned that residents of the Virgin Islands participate in the presidential election folly. I should have known this…but, who cares?
Finally, I realized that such a coup means conservative/moderate/liberal (depends on the day, the audience, and the question) Republican is close to capturing the coveted prize of the next guy to lose a presidential election (unless he can figure out a way to buy it!)
