Coincidence? I Think Not.

Each of the presidential campaigns has scripts for the supporters who will argue their cases at the individual Iowa precincts on caucus night this Tuesday.

Mitt Romney’s script instructs his supporters to begin by saying, “What a great day to be an Iowan!”

Nikki Haley, the governor of South Carolina, has endorsed Mitt.  Haley requires all her state employees to answer their phones by saying, “It’s a great day in South Carolina!”

Coincidence?  I think not.

You want minutiae?  We here at Embattled Farmers are always happy to oblige.

    Please note that the same individual S meets the conditions to assert both so long as S is an Iowan in South Carolina, or S is an Iowan outside of South Carolina who has information about the conditions in South Carolina, or S is not an Iowan but wishes to convey that the day is particularly auspicious for those lucky enough to be Iowans and meets one of the conditions above for South Carolina.
    However, one can always assert, whatever one’s state and current location, that it is never a great day to be a Pennsylvanian.

    “It’s a great dayt” sounds like an advertising meme. And here’s a food market which uses it, probably before Haley grabbed it.
