It was good to get away from the TV and do some savage work today. Not that the work was in and of itself savage, just my approach to it. I've pretty much decided that any job can be made easier with a nice assortment of hammers.
So I just did a quick scan of the news and I see that some man in Britain got badly hurt trying to launch fireworks from his bottom. OK... And it seems Nancy Pelosi is breaking up with Kevin Federline, or someone. And in Virginia Allen did concede as expected.
Hey, it could be worse. The Briton will most likely heal, and bonus, I'll bet he doesn't ever try that again. Kevin Federline will find someone new. And best of all- the democrats won't be screaming 24 hours a day for the next two years about how Diebold stole the election from them. They also have in front of them an example of how to lose a closely fought election. (though I'm not going to kid myself that they will remember it the next time they lose)
And if you must feel despondent, I suppose you could dwell on how Bush's job in Iraq is going to be harder now, but that's all it's going to be: harder. If George W Bush is the man he seems to be, he will not let the worst possible ending in Iraq happen. No matter how hard this job becomes, I think he gets it. The very worst ending here would be if the Jihadists chased us from Iraq. That would make many, many, many, more terrorists. That's the part of the leaked intelligence assessment that didn't get leaked. But it's the crucial part. That's what the President gets, and I think he'll fight with all he's got to keep us from that worst of all possible outcomes.
