...I actually had to do real work today, so my usual Must Blog About This Post-it note stash is seriously depleted. Gotta delete that spambot and that's about it, at least as far as my scribbles go. We'll combine the two other items:
First, North Georgia Dogma has confirmed our worst fears: Cynthia McKinney is going to run for her old Congressional seat. She's being opposed in the Democratic primary by Cathy Woolard; I suspect that Ricky didn't take any more time than I did in deciding to endorse her candidacy. There are viral colonies that would be better candidates for Congress than McKinney; a local politician will do just fine, and I wish Woolard the best of luck, both here and in her opposition to Georgia's proposed gay marriage ban.
Second, Ralph Nader has advised Senator Kerry to 'loosen up'. This part of the post was once much longer, and much meaner to Nader - but what's the point, really? I can't stand him, most of you can't stand him, heck, most of the political spectrum can't stand him. I mean, when magazines like Counterpunch compare you to their current favorite devil figure (not to mention wistfully-yet-deniably muse about how neat it would be if you would just douse yourself with gasoline and light a match), the possibility should be considered that your message may not be all that well received.
To put it mildly.
