Many readers, clutching at notches and notching at straws, draw my attention to the hitherto little-known 16-year Dixville Notch curse:
1960 Nixon 9 Kennedy 0
1976 Ford 13 Carter 11
1992 Bush 15 Perot 8 Marrou 5 Clinton 3
2008 Obama 15 McCain 6
Every 16 years a candidate sweeps the Notch and goes on to lose the nation.
Clearly, Barack Obama is Nixon, Ford and Bush. And McCain is Andre Marrou. No, wait…
If you don’t want an Obama-Pelosi-Reid-Frank-Acorn supermajority, there’s only one way to stop it: Vote.
