I had a really strange experience with this bumper sticker in September. It was everywhere I turned, Berry Patch Farms, a red light near my house, and on the car in front of me at the bank drive through. It even prompted me to write this, Bumpersticker Omen! Now, I can agree, it was an omen, a good omen, indeed.
Fast forward to January and the political scene is blowing up. I love all the hoopla in a presidential election year. I am personally disappointed in myself that I have not re-registered as a Democrat. I've always been registered as an Independent.
I am going to miss out on Colorado's
Primaries Caucus (I stand rightly corrected), which really bums me out.
And more realistically, anyone other than a intellectually challenged Texan, would be a really refreshing change.
Take it or leave it, for what it is.
I am thrilled to see Barack did so well in Iowa. Good for him, now I really must get through The Audacity of Hope, I've owned it for 13 months. Sorry, Barack, I can't get past chapter 3. I promise to re-start the book tonight, for the third time. That Oprah, really does turn whatever she touches into gold, we can't forget her part in all of his success.
Being a native New Yorker, I think the east coast may create a bit of an uproar for those newly named front runners. New Hampshire is not known for their Evangelicals. Here's an interesting post on Mike Huckabee. I loved the timing of his Christmas Message with the subliminal cross in the background, seems like the whispers from a Karl Rove type.
Most generally speaking, I am not going to get too political around here. But, I can't just sit back while such excitement and change is on the forefront for the United States. This will be an election I will not miss, hopefully you'll realize how much your vote counts come November.
Fyi: Caucus Vs. Primary Lingo.
