Front Runners

Okay, among the early candidates the only one who is worth my support is Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico. The three front runners lost my vote and support on the issue of Iran. They still don’t get it: AIPAC and their enablers are passing out the “brown acid,” and Clinton, Edwards, and Obama still haven’t learned to “avoid the brown acid”¹, the intel and spin that got us the very “bad trip” that is Iraq.

I refuse to vote for anyone who won’t make the effort to really learn about matters of war and peace. I’m not voting for another unnecessary war.

1. You have to be a older to really understand the reference, but someone has probably written about it on the ‘Nets.

In the Republican congressional leadership one finds:

McConnell of Kentucky, Lott of Mississippi, Blunt of Missouri, Cantor of Virginia, Putnam of Florida, and, from Texas, Cornyn, Hutchinson, Granger and Carter.

I think that might explain what Oliver Willis finds puzzling in his post: Conservatives Vs. Lincoln.

The period of the mid-nineteenth century tends to be presented in a “slightly” different fashion in American history classes depending on what region of the country you live in, starting with the name of the best known event in that period.

If you look at the change to Presidents Day, from the celebration of Lincoln’s and Washington’s birthdays, you might find the same geographic distribution among supporters of the change.

The Associated Press report on the ceremonial start: 82 teams, 1,000 dogs hit Iditarod trail.

Wikipedia provides some background on the biggest event in Alaska: Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race®.

As always the Anchorage Daily News provides the daily coverage.
