I was completely ignoring Iowa, despite its being the setting for one of my favorite musical comedies. I'm glad Obama won, I'm glad that Edwards showed some true spirit. He made a concession speech that didn't concede jackshit. I'm glad Hillary isn't going anywhere. Fight on folks.
Huckabee is a representation of the worst our nation has to offer. To not believe in evolution and other scientific facts requires agressive ignorance. It takes energy to remain unconvinced or uninformed. Also, anyone who has read the book of revealations and buys that stuff is disqualified from holding high office to my thinking. Mitt Romney is a phony douche. I don't like him because of his shameless pandering. Hell, his Mormon faith might be the only decent thing about him.
Anyway, I'm still puttering around the house, settling in more. Truffle production should resume momentarily.
