Bottom line

As if you needed further proof that the presidential campaign is less about tackling the issues and more about what supposed dirt will stick to the rival candidate, we have this to reflect on from Bill Clinton.

Stumping in Sparks, Nev., on Tuesday for his wife, longtime political player Hillary, the former president tried to frame Democratic challenger Barack Obama as the "establishment" candidate, based apparently on the fact that Obama has won the endorsement of Nevada's largest labor union, the 60,000-member Culinary Union.

Hear that, unions? Remember all the times the Clintons kowtowed to you to get your votes? Back then, you were the proud, strong backbone of U.S. labor. Now, you're the "establishment."

Will you remember that when you go to the polls?

In the primaries, the gloves

In the primaries, the gloves come off. All is fair. Lies, distortions, insults, all is fair. February 5th draws near. Keep your children from the tv and radio.

Yes Patti that is true and it

Yes Patti that is true and it has been that way since the founding. I once dreamed of becoming a political cartoonist and loved studying old cartoons from Lincoln's era and on. We scrutinize other governments in contrast to our own too. We don't mind casting stones. It reminds me of a bull fight. Lots of blood and bull.

Frankly, I am tired of all

Frankly, I am tired of all the hot air and "news" coverage as if there isn't anything else going on in the world.
