As the title of this blog suggests, I am often stuck by random thoughts while working in my wood shop and today was no different. The first thing that struck me was the fact that Karl Rove is deserting the ship of state. And not a moment too soon either, I suspect that if he stayed too much longer the House and Senate may investigate his dealings over the past 7 years. The guy just looks smarmy to me, kind of like a snake oil salesman. I guess that Dick the dick will now be the only one to put words in King George II's ear. Maybe Dick the dick will review his statements from 1994 when he said that to remove Saddam from power would create an unstable Middle East that might leave room for Iran to take over a bigger chunk of the Middle East and really cause problems for the US. Obviously, he has forgotten those words in his zeal to democratize Iraq.
I also thought about the upcoming primaries. Florida is apparently not satisfied with stealing elections, now they want to choose the candidates. What ever happened to the primaries when each candidate amassed delegates based on the percentage of votes received in each primary. Then they fought it out in the convention to get the nomination. Nowadays the candidate is already selected before they go into the convention. Takes all of the excitement and fun out of the convention. If things keep up the way they have been the candidates will be selected at birth!
