Clean for Dean

So Howard Dean is out. Sounds like he gave a kick-ass speech. It makes me sad, although it doesn't surprise me at this point. I wish New Jersey's primary wasn't the last in the nation; by the time the voting gets to us, the decision has been made and the primary is pretty pointless. No matter. I'm grateful to Howard Dean for running. He's had a huge impact on the tone of the race and is largely responsible for the backbone transplant the rest of the candidates appear to have received. And for that alone, I consider the money I gave to the campaign well-spent. Maybe that makes him this cycle's Gene McCarthy, another candidate who defined the race but didn't win. I still think Howard Dean would have been the best President. I think this country could use another Harry Truman, and Governor Dean was the closest thing to a new Truman I've ever seen. And I think he was perfectly electable this year. So many people are so mad at George Bush about so many things that I think the Democrats could nominate a stuffed cabbage and still win.

So I'll be ready to vote for the stuffed cabbage in November, and do whatever I can to make sure that George Bush gets that one-way bus ticket back to Crawford.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
