Hi MommaPotter and IrishYankee!

A little birdie told me that I still had a daily visitor. Checking site logs, I found out its true!!! And maybe even more than one!!! Just wanted to give a little shoutout to my peeps. :-*

In the interest of moving John Spencer down the page (who, by the way, enjoys reading, listening to music, gardening and spending time with friends -- even those from his high school days), here's a little picture for ya...

That's all I got. :-*


Rest In Peace, John Spencer

Because I'm tired of it year after year after year after year having to chose between the lesser of who cares? Of trying to get myself excited about a candidate who can speak in complete sentences. Of setting the bar so low, I can hardly look at it. They say a good man can't get elected President. I don't believe that, do you?

Does it matter that I'm not as sure?

Nah. Act as if ye have faith and faith shall be given to you. Put it another way, fake it
till you make it. You did good tonight.


This is the time of Jed Bartlet, old friend. You're gonna open your mouth and lift houses off the ground. Whole houses, clear off the ground...

One of 1,000 Leo Moments on the West Wing that made reaffirmed my faith in the potential for great government, and more importantly, made me love John Spencer. You will truly be missed! @---}----
Tim Ryan Blasts the Admin

"Please forgive us for not believing what you're saying!" I wouldn't mind seeing more dems grow a spine, like Congressman Tim Ryan (D, OH-17). 3 Cheers!


Go read this:

Wilson IV, Joseph C. What I Didn't Find in Africa. The New York Times; Sunday July 6, 2003, Section 4, pg. 9 col. 1.

It's the article that kicked off the conversations on Valerie Plame's ID in the White House and then in the press, and led to her outing in the press 8 days later (July 14th '03) as a covert op for the CIA. In my opinion, you can't understand the current scandal without reading this first.

Comments open for your input, bets on who gets indicted next, shoutouts, etc.


John Kerry Is A Rockstar

So at this point exactly one year ago, I was at a visibility on a busy streetcorner in Concord, NH, holding a Kerry/Edwards sign and waving at the passing cars. Yeah, I was one of those people. Election day was one year ago today, and its sort of a oddly sad day for me now. I know, with all the other things to be sad about, I choose to revisit the Kerry loss...

On the bright side, this means that we have only 1 more year until dems take back the house, and 3 more years of this current insanity--a mere 38.5% left!! And lame-duckness is just around the bend.

Anyone have a good JK story to share? I could use one.

And just because it really isn't a day until I get a chance to mock B*sh, he had this to say right after the election:
I earned capital in the campaign, political capital, and now I intend to spend it.
How's it going for you now, dear leader? You're little shopping spree about complete? Cuz Social Security didn't work out so well, the little filibuster melodrama was a little embarrassing for you, Katrina, Jeff Gannon, Cindy Sheehan, Michael Brown, Harriet Miers, Scooter Libby, Tom Delay (just because I can), approval ratings, and wait what was that other one? hmm. IRAQ. I can't even think straight about Iraq. That actually stopped being funny a little while ago...cut me some slack, I'm rusty!

Since that's not embarrassing enough, thanks to BillinPortlandMaine, we have this little tidbit: Number of times Bush said his job was "hard work" during the first debate: 11.


Can't stop gloating

Thanks to 2 Political Junkies for the find:
