Ran For The Border
Hey boys and girls. Will be heading back to my humble abode in the great state of Ohio tomorrow. It has been an interesting stay in Arizona, as the immigration bill in Congress is even more of a hot potato out here (that whole on the border thing). The right is fracturing, with the corporate right and the paleo-conservative right at each other's throats.
But I can also tell you, from meeting with anti-war vets and progressive activists here, that there is as much anger with the Democrats on Iraq as there is among Republicans at their party over the immigration bill.
That ridiculous cave in to Bush may be in the process of costing our party a larger majority. Although, if they can't do what is both morally right and politically smart, because they are afraid of their own collective shadow (and this is not everone, mind you, just the cowards who caved to Bush)...I'll let you finish the sentence.
On a very different note, I have really enjoyed my visit here. Great people. Fantastic food. Beautiful scenery outside the cities. I even got to see Mel's Diner from Alice. Oh that Mel, so angry....
Oh, and I learned one other thing. The "it's not the heat it's the humidity" thing. Yeah, um, when it's 111 degrees, it's the freakin heat.
