Experiencing blowback is humbling. I was the first of the 2012 candidates to visit Dixville Notch. I was hoping that visit might have been enough to secure a win or at least get enough votes to be competitive and set the tone for today’s primary in New Hampshire. Dixville Notch voters vote at midnight and announce their results soon after. I did not get any votes in either the Republican or Democratic primaries. I looked back at my campaigning notes to try to figure out why I did so poorly. It took me a while to find it, but I found out why: I had made a terrible faux-pas when I visited Dixville Notch.
The faux-pas involved handing out Celine Dion and William Shatner CDs when I was there. Dixville Notch might be near Canada, but their hearts are all-American. I don’t know if this translate into wanting to go to war with Canada, but I lost my trust after trying to unload the CDs.
I am hoping the rest of New Hampshire doesn’t find out about the debacle in Dixville Notch and I can fare well. Not hearing my name among votes received isn’t going to help. I will be in New Hampshire tomorrow afternoon and access the results of today’s primaries and come up with a campaign strategy to have my name and platform resonate with the people of New Hampshire.
