Only 365 Days To Go

Quack! Quack! Quack!

Looks like one. Sounds like one. Walks like one. Must be one.

Quack! Quack! Quack!

I usually attribute that citation to Dan Rather, as in the Dan Rather duck test.

Did you read/listen to Obama's MLK day speech? It is awesome.

You can judge for yourself.

I just hope he can pull it off.

and that duck will never find Legacy Lake, which is what he is flailing about for.

yeah, i caught that speech. i've heard others of obama's that were more... rigorous. his words are good in this one, but his cadence is slow. i do like obama - but i am an edwards girl. will vote for him on super-duper tuesday even though he is out of the race now. but he still has a roll to play i think - not kingmaker, but definately he can be an influence at the convention.

cj - should we right in the original ducks on our ballots? they might be just as good as anyone else, eh?

bogsie baby - so glad to see ya!

namechanged - regrettably, the duck will indeed make it to legacy lake - unfortunately - his legacy is killing us U.S., literally.

But 363 days to go!

Hi Bird--love your pictures!
Great to see your happy smiling face...
(The dogs are cute, too)
Happy New Year!

By the way, can anyone tell me why no-one seems to be voting for Kucinich even though his positions are closest to what the country wants? Just asking...

kucinich is too upfront, too honorable, too smart, too funny, too engaged, too effective where he is to win the nomination.

the irony almost kills me.

thursday next: given edwards poor showing in SC and obama's upset, i'm now rethinking my strategy - i am no longer sure for whom to vote on super-duper tuesday. i am not convinced yet that obama can beat the repubs (and i think hilary has a shot at that)... if obama gets the nomination - you can bet the uglies will come out in full force with hogwash - racist crap - no doubt, but also, they'll nail him to the cross with a false muslim connection - or rather, an exaggerated muslim connection. sigh.

polly - i am counting the days til shrub is gone. even purchased a bush-out-of-office countdown calendar!
