View From The Bar
I was in the hotel bar last night, and a few folks were sitting at a nearby table. One exclaimed, "Dean sure got his butt kicked in Iowa, didn't he?" I was shocked. Not by the truth of it, but that somebody in Texas (besides Steve Bates) was following the race closely enough to know about Howie.
The people chatting were clearly way more conservative than I am. They also weren't very pleased with the SOTU. Another shock.
My candidate might not win the Democratic nomination, but I still have a glimmer of hope that whoever does win just might beat Bush.
PS--Many humble apologies to my faithful readers for the dearth of blogging, cat or otherwise, during my exile in Texas. Class is over mid-afternoon tomorrow, and after several drinks in the hotel bar I might be able to muster some drunken blogging. Elsewise, probably not until Sunday, since I'll probably delayed and/or wiped out during my trip home on Saturday. Thanks for the concern, and for visiting despite the drought.
