When, in 1964, New Hampshire Republican Senator Norris Cotton announced
his support of Bary Goldwater in his state's primary election, he was
questioned as to whether this indicated a change of his hitherto "liberal"
"Well," explained Cotton, "it's like the New Hampshire farmer. He was
driving along in his car one day with his wife beside him when his wife said,
'Why don't we sit closer together? Before we were married, we always sat
closer together.' The old farmer replied, 'I ain't moved.'"
"I ain't moved," added Cotton. "I found the trend of Government has
moved farther to the left."
