Wake Up

I know I'm not usually the source for substantive political coverage here. I try to keep things at least somewhat humorous, slightly sensational and fun because so much of the news, while it often is sensational, is deadening. And my political posts often come from the same place my outrage comes from. Be that as it may.

Kerry's had a surprising victory in Iowa. I have no idea what this means. I haven't made it a secret that I disagreed with what I saw as his presidential gambit in supporting Bush on the war way back when the vote took place. Is this what is helping him now? Can he win if he gets the nomination? Is Iowa anything more than a little political side show that you have to get past on the way to the nomination? I have no idea. I do know that this makes things more interesting, though "interesting is not what Dean supporters wanted.

I think Dean is far from over, so you Deaniacs are only looking at a minor setback.

Politics is in the air. I'm still focused on our president. That "pretty" story still has me in stitches. Imagine the uproar if CLinton had gone around commenting on the appearance of staffers from other world leaders. I swear there are times I get up in the morning and re-read stories about Bush because I wonder if I dreamed them.
