Clark County Caucus Chaos

The Clark County GOP put out an email today advising that “For those whose religious observances prohibit them from participating in the Saturday morning caucus, there will be a Special Caucus Session on Saturday evening at 7 p.m.” However, to participate, folks will “be required to sign a declaration that due to religious observances they were unable to attend the regularly scheduled morning caucus.”

Which is all fine and dandy. But what about Republicans who, despite Obama’s best efforts, still have a job and have to work in the morning? Why disenfranchise them simply because it’s their job rather than their religion that will prevent them from participating?

There’s a military phrase for how the GOP has handled this caucus – and the first word is “cluster.” Indeed, if anything else goes seriously wrong on caucus day, I predict Nevada will permanently lose its early-state designation for future elections to Arizona. And they’ll deserve it.
