And now, some political ranting

I watched part of the State of the Union Speech last night. (I didn't bother with the Dem response because I don't need to raise by blood pressure even more.) Bush's comments on securing the border made me want to reach through the TV and smack him. WTF has he been doing for the last six years? Frankly, I think nothing will be done to remedy the border situation. Despite his protests, "reform" = "amnesty."

Bush's plan to extend health insurance it more big federal government involvement in matters over which it has no constitutional authority.

The field of contenders for the 2008 presidential election continues to grow. I need to learn more about Sam Brownback of Kansas. Bill Richardson of New Mexico is the first Dem in a long time which doesn't automatically induce nausea. But I am not optimistic about the country's choices for 2008. Both major parties seem to have implemented candidate selection systems which guarantee that we'll be faced in November 2008 with making the choice of the lesser of two evils.

I may just write in Chthulu.

Even though I, probably, come from the opposite direction, I have come to the same conclusion. Namely, whomever makes it to the end, from both parties, will not be the candidates this country needs. Sigh.

Now if I could only figure out how to correct this...
