Macbeth the Usurper

Ah

I hate to say it, but I miss Reagan. When he won, boy, did he win. You had no doubt. I didn't like the guy, but you never had any doubt that he won the election.

I am saddened by the likely defeat of Kerry. I don't like the weasle, and wish that the Dems had actually nominated someone with less hair gel, but I am still saddened.

Losing Daschle is worse. Much worse. The losses in the House and Senate are bad.

So, we can thank the successful Clinton years for forcing the Republicans to get more organized and more effective. Now it's our turn. There's your motivation, folks. Get motivated.

I heard that "moral" were the surprise sleeper issue. Well, morals is the words that the Dems need to start using:
- the health of the environment is a moral issue
- healthcare is a moral issue
- a balanced budget is a moral issue
- equal opportunity is a moral issue

We got to start using that word. Moral.

Dental Woes

Today joy, in addition to the presidential election results, included a trip to the dentist to have a crown fitted. You see, yesterday, I went to get my teeth cleaned. The hygenist had good things to say about my teeth, and my wallet rejoyced. The dentist came in, and she said "crown". Boooo.

So now, I am waiting for a crown. It should go in the day before Thanksgiving.

What is it with me, holidays, and dental fun? I got my braces the day before Halloween. They came off a year later, the day after Christmas. I had my wisdom teeth removed the day before Christmas. Now, I have a crown two days after Halloween and the day after the election.

Phew!
