Weather As An Excuse

Nevada Republicans had a lower turnout  in their caucus on Saturday than they did in 2008 when they were rolling out the junior varsity in 2008. Their excuse? The weather was too nice! The Super Bowl was the next day! People were too wrapped up in t-bone steaks and buying bags of Applebee’s-brand salad to get out there and vote.

Oh, not for nothing, but the weather when Nevada held their caucuses in 2008?

57 degrees.

The weather on Saturday?

55 degrees.

I guess they just needed a respite after this harsh, punishing winter we’ve had.
