How interesting. The mayoral primary in Fort Wayne last year was basically the Republican half of the Iowa caucuses in miniature — the religious right wing rallying behind their guy, and the country-club types having a hissy fit. This Sadlynaught post about the bitchiness of the Huckabee payback had a familiar ring to it. Who knew the Fort would be the GOP’s coal-mine canary?

And, not for nothing – the coal mine canary here in the Fort gave the last, full measure

Kind of like how Fort Wayne’s tight mayor’s race in 1999 foreshadowed the presidential electoral mess of 2000, except in Fort Wayne, the person with the most votes actually took office.

Funny, I was thinking the exact same thing, Nancy.
