Two things DS is sick of

Number One: All this Al Gore for President talk. DS thinks it's obvious the man has risen above politics. He was a big environmental supporter while in the Senate, but that wasn't his sole focus. Now, it is. Isn't it clear that Gore thinks his main calling now is as an environmental advocate? How could he ever become President on such a single-focus platform? He can do far more good for the environment as a private advocate than a public official.

Number Two: Governor Schwarzenegger breaking his leg skiing . . . in Idaho. Okay, this is a bit of an old topic, but I got to thinking of it again with the latest California Snow commercials . This is a Governor who loves to talk about how California has the best snow and about how we should buy California grown products. So, why was he skiing in Sun Valley Idaho and not in California? Why does he have his vacation house there and not in California? Seems like a Governor who is trying to tell us to spend our money on California products should do so himself.

One thing I'm sick of is bloggers who can't use the insert link function. Edit this crap, DS.

Back in the old days, we coded HTML by hand. Links are simply [less than]a href="[url]"[greater than][text you want to link][less than]/a[greater than].

I understand young'ns like DS can't work the hypertext, but one can dream.

I'm tired of the Al Gore for President stuff, too. The way I see it, he and Kerry each had their shot. Once you lose one, give someone else a chance...

It happens often enough that I'm not suprised people consider it. Look at Nixon. *This does not indicate that I consider that a "good" or "bad" move for the American People(tm).

Gore won't run unless something happens to take Clinton out of the race.

Gore ran and lost* when the economy was in great shape and everyone knew Bush was a goofball. All that has changed since then is that Al Gore made himself look crazier (e.g., overweight bearded phase and various espousing of significantly more radical views than he expressed as VP or presidential candidate) than he did in 2000. And at this point, it doesn't look like any of the GOP frontrunners rival Bush's goofiness. There is no way he would win now if he couldn't win then.

*Despite any complaints about the electoral college or possible cheating in Florida, a real candidate would've blown Bush out of the water in 2000.

Slightly off topic, but the above comment actually got me wondering, in 2000 Bush ran on the whole "compassionate conservatism" mantre. Why aren't the Dems ramming this up where the sun don't shine? Maybe an article in TNR or something? NYT? I mean Keith Olberman mentions it occasionally, but still. At a time when none of the GOP's policies enjoy the support of more than 1/3 of this country (if that), I think it makes sense that the alternative to a Democratic administration, even under Giuliani, is likely to be more hardcore partisanship and ideology at the expense of reason and policy.

Second point, this is why I don't like Pelosi. Seriously, a call to his Chief of Staff to complain? WTF!!!! Why don't you send him a note on 50% recycled paper written in fair trade ink? Would Harry Reid take this sh%t? NO!!!!
