No profile of the Wiltshire voter? Beards. Poor personal hygiene. Partially employed.

Very funny, you nailed it. One minor quibble for Music of Madden Supporters. It's Grateful Dead and Bonnie Raitt. On Primary night Madden posted an international version of "Ripple" done in honor of the Dead's 50th anniversary to his FB page.

Would someone please buy Jim Welch a new hat? The Indiana Jones meets Deliverance look is not attractive.

I'd like to add a few characteristics of Gordon voters/supporters, they love cheeseburgers, BBQ sauce intravenous tubes, goons, tax cheats, tough guy red faced sponge Bob look a like former/would be councilman who illegally take down signs, and a plethora of dish washers and code enforcement Nazis

We need HG4YN back. He was the best poster out here. Unfortunately I think he chased away the best and brightest of Cox, Pooper and K Mcgrath.

Was Farrah Fawcett in the Burning Bed? Good movie. Jim should keep matches out of the house.
