Why not? Every other conservative name, with the exception of Rick Santorum (no one is that crazy yet), is being floated by social cons desperate for someone to gain traction. Fred will probably land a few choice movie roles because of all the publicity he is getting just on the speculation that he might run. And other random thoughts of the day.

OK, keeping Sanjaya Malakar in the Idol contest was funny for a while. It stopped being funny last night and turned sad. He has got to go, for the good of the country. Our long national nightmare needs to end.

No one has ever answered my question on the fairness of Sandy Berger being a free man while Scooter Libby is going to jail?

There does seem to be some progress in Iraq and I am happy to see it. I am concerned that it is only temporary and things will break apart again. You know, when mom and dad finally leave the room will the kids still behave?

It makes me curious that Iran kidnaps the Brit soldiers at this point in time. If you read Instapundit and Andrew Sullivan, then you know that the Iranian people are very unhappy with their system of government. Could this be a distraction technique, aka “wag the tail”?

When I was a junior in high school, I had gym on the first day of school. In walked a “new” gym teacher. He was 50 years old with socks up to his thighs. If you are 40 years old or more, then you had to have one of these types. The first words out of his mouth was, “idiots to the left, morons to the right”. His facial expression indicated that he was very serious. Being the rebel, and also due to the fact that I was very stupid, I decided to stand in the middle. When he walked up to me, I proudly announced that I was the representative of the great middle ground, a mixture of idiot and moron. He proceeded to punch me twice in the collar bone because I was (he agreed) an idiot and moron. For the rest of the year, I lined up, alone in the middle. The moral of this story? I have no idea except that if you want to be different, then you may have to accept some pain.

Another spring training breaks camp and the Phillies will have not one but two starting pitchers on the DL. Another bad April for Phillies fans. Some things never change.

If it is really cold next winter and the icebergs start to freeze again, will Al Gore shut up? Probably not.

Here is wishing a recovery for both Tony Snow and Mrs. Edwards. Ditto for all the other poor souls suffering in the world.

Here are 3 L’s to live by according to my dearly departed grandfather – laugh at least once a day, learn something new every day and love the people around you. If you can do those things you will live a great life. As I get older those words carry more meaning to me.

Whatever happened to John Boy?
