Wyoming - Can't Get No Respect

It's interesting what states are anointed by the press as "important." I don't know how many times I've heard the talking heads from the press say, "But Romney needs to WIN something!" If I were a Wyomian, I'd be starting to have an identity crisis.

News Flash to the Press: Romney WON Wyoming back on January 5th. Mitt Romney won more delegates by winning Wyoming (8 delegates) than John McCain did by winning New Hampshire (7 delegates).

I fail to see what makes Iowa and New Hampshire so much more qualified to be the barometer of politics and covered by the national media, while Wyoming is completely ignored.

Thanks for the respect. I happen to be from Wyoming (the official word is Wyomingite, but the MSM would never use it since apparently our state doesn't matter.) Wyoming is a good bellwether for Republican politics. We went for Mitt, and gave him 8 delegates. True blue dyed in the wool conservatives will vote for Mitt too.
