Holy crap. Hillary is up twenty in Florida now. I'm surprised at Giuliani's strength, too. Geography could really work in Rudy's favor if somehow Fred Thompson's not the big story coming out of Iowa/New Hampshire/South Carolina. Back in 1988, Jesse Jackson's success in the South on Super Tuesday was largely overshadowed in the media by Michael Dukakis taking Florida, thus proving he could win "in the South" (Florida being about as Southern as an egg creme...but that's a separate issue). The early primary schedule in 2008 gives Giuliani a chance to put New York, New Jersey, California, and Florida in his pocket at the outset. That's a lot of momentum...and, oh by the way, also a lot of delegates. [Hillary pic courtesy of AP]
I'm in ur debate. Sendin u questionz. This could seriously go either way. With the CNN/YouTube Debate tonight, teh intrawebs pokes its Cheeto-stained fingers into the race for the White House in a big way. HYH will be right here before bedtime with some post-debate spin. A Presidential debate back-to-back with Monday Night RAW is about as good as TV gets for me.
What's worse than being considered today's edgiest potty-mouthed "hottie" comic and going after the easiest, no-consequences target in the room? How about doing it with an utterly unfunny burn and then apologizing for it later?
James McPherson Wins Pritzker Military Writing Award. I've had the honor of actually meeting and chatting with Dr. McPherson. That Pritzker Award will look good alongside his Pulitzer.
Conservative (hey, not that there's anything wrong with that...just preparing you for some of his other content) Peach Punditeer Jeff Emanuel has a terrific, spoiler-free review of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows up on his blog. It's a great read.
