It's A Start

I was practically giddy as I strolled in to work this morning in my new stilettos and bright red overcoat.

I swear I caught a whiff of politics in the parking lot, sent with the western winds, along with the pungent odor of hog manure and rotting corn husks.

Iowa.

The Caucuses.

The first step in what I like to call The Beginning Of The End.

Tonight several thousand Americans had a chance to exercise their rights (more specifically the First and Tenth amendments) to demonstrate who they believe will best lead the nation beginning January 20th, 2009.

Political affiliations aside, I am excited about tonight's results.

The people of Iowa have taken the first step in establishing who will eventually run to serve as the next President of the United States of America. And I, for one, am anxious to embrace this new leader.

We cannot fix broken roads, our schools do not have the books they need - and I can't help but think it's because of the amazing drain that is rapidly funnelling cash to the Middle East.

It is well past time to say goodbye to this pet project, this Bush's Folly.

I don't know who will become President in November. In fact, I can't even say whom I'm backing yet.

One thing I do know - I'm looking forward to the sweet scent of change.

When the road gets bumpy while your riding off to drink some crappy merlot in your ratty Jetta you can't help but think it's because of the Iraq war. That's just lame. Your bettr than that. Feel free to not show that everyone in media has a major liberal bias.

Dream sweetly tonight... but more importantly, dream. :-)

Hosequeen Lover... welcome to the blog.

I take it you just got here.

I don't drink crappy merlot and I ditched the ghetto Jetta a long time ago.

But I love your spelling mistakes and gross misinterpretation of my words. Feel free to comment more often! I'll enjoy the laugh.

PS - you'd probably think twice about that major bias in the liberal media thing if you knew my political party registration.

Kate-

I am equally excited about the upcoming election - even though I will be pulling the "Any Democrat 2008" lever this time around. There's something about an election year that gets my heart pumping a little stronger and faster.

Hosequeen-
I can't believe people are still harping on the "liberal media bias" crap. Isn't it 2008? You've obviously never worked for a television station. Who do you think runs most of them? White, Republican, rich men. Let. it. go. But, feel free to chime in at any time - I'll look forward to Kate giving you a verbal smackdown.
