So, after our little Tuesday Primary BBQ party I went to bed without knowing the results. And I won’t lie – I was really hoping that everything would be decided by Wednesday. So imagine my horror at discovering that NOTHING was decided!
I know your pain, Kitty, I. Know. Your. Pain.
And then I saw this on CNN.com Wednesday:
Just 7 weeks. Just 7 weeks! JUST 7 WEEKS?!
Now CNN, I love you. But I think it’s time for an intervention. You are clearly ODing on political coverage and your judgement it failing. Much can be done in 7 weeks. Allow me to offer some perspective: Apollo 11 took 3 days to travel from the Earth to the Moon, the 1967 Arab-Israeli War took 6 days and at 6 weeks facial features are visible in a fetus. What am I getting at? Seven weeks is a LONG frickin’ time!
I have decided to use this time for good and do something I’ve been meaning to do for a long time. I’m re-reading the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Currently I’m on page 128 of The Fellowship of the Ring and Frodo, Sam, Pippin and Merry have just left the Shire. I will keep you posted of my progress.
Now that that is out of my system, I feel better.
That’s better too.
Yesterday, TVNewswer had a fun poll about who was better at showcasing the new election technology: John King or FNC’s Bill Hemmer. John kicked butt! 62% to 38%. Kiss it, Hemmer! You can check it out here.
