Make Believe

As the week trudged on the facade continued to be built up. Faces behind tinted SUV windows. The higher the poll numbers the higher the security. Candidates visit diners and hold speeches. Rally this endorsement that. It seemed that the few who focused on New Hampshire voters didn’t even get a chance to see them through the swarm of media that followed them from SUV door to SUV door. Rooms filled with cameras, tame questions being shouted from behind microphones overshadowed the New Hampshire natives who came to meet the Primary contenders. Other candidates moved their focus to a nationwide campaign and were barely seen unless they were in a perfectly lit room with security sweeps aimed to flush out small handfuls of Occupy protestors that had infiltrated the amber waves of supporters.
