“The manner in which some in the national team conducted themselves towards Team-NH was rude, unprofessional, dishonest, and at times cruel. But more concerning was how abrasive, discourteous, and dismissive some within the national team were towards many New Hampshire citizens.”
- from the letter of resignation sent to the press this past Sunday by the entire Michelle Bachmann New Hampshire campaign staff
The beauty of the New Hampshire Primary being the first in the nation is it allows candidates with a ton of money and with no money to play on a relatively similar playing field. If you’re a small time candidate and get serious attention and votes it can springboard you onto bigger and better things. On the other hand, if you’re a doucher like Bachmann and some people in her team it can backfire and then you have this sort of thing.
