A little out of sorts

My uncle died yesterday, so I'm going to be a little out of pocket for the next couple of days. I'll try to post when I can.

A few things that have come to my attention:

Governor Henry needs to veto the "Religious Viewpoints Anti-discrimination Act."

John Edwards has endorsed Barack Obama. Good for him. A little late, a little like jumping on the train after it has left the station, but still.

Bush is in the Middle East doing nothing useful, and implies it'll take another 60 years before we see peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

What's on your mind today?


  1. I think Edward's endorsement isn't so much late, as strategically scheduled. We're only two days removed from Hillary's victory in West Virginia, I can't think of a better way for Obama to steal her thundar than with Edwards endorsement. I also think Edwards is shooting for the VP spot, which I suspect has already been arranged between the two of them. I'm not trying to sound negative about it, I just think it's all about strategy.

    As for Bush's recent comments, comparing the president of Iran to Hilter. What a moron! How did he ever get elected?

  2. I've heard the strategy argument from several sources, and it definitely makes sense. However, I don't know about Edwards in the Veep slot. I think Richardson would be a better choice. He's a technocrat who would balance Obama's charisma with a needed dose of gravitas.
