Here's what Amy Tarkanian, struggling with an insurrection over the presidential caucus here and same-day registration, had to say about Florida moving to Jan. 31:
"Florida's decision to move its primary is disappointing and, frankly, disrespectful of the other early primary states and the process as a whole. Because the date of Nevada's caucus is, by rule, four days after New Hampshire's, we will move Nevada's First in the West caucus if the New Hampshire GOP moves theirs. No matter what, we will not allow this disruption to interfere with our goal of creating a Presidential caucus that will be the pride of the western states. This situation gives Nevadans the opportunity to showcase our ability to adapt and establish our state as a major player in national politics."
Pride of Western states? We are about to become a national laughingstock unless Madame Chairwoman tells the tea drinkers to sit down and shut up.
