April Fool!

OK, this really has nothing to do with April Fool's Day, but I had to get this off my chest: I'm getting bored with the Democratic Presidential Primary.

Ever since the Texas Primary ended, I have paid less and less attention to it. If I have to read one more story or one more blog entry about superdelegates or last Saturday's Senatorial District Conventions, I'm gonna scream.

Yes, Hillary won the popular vote here, keeping her campaign alive to fight another day. Yes, Obama won more Texas delegates based on his strength in urban areas and the dedication of his supporters who showed up to caucus on March 4th and again on Saturday. Blah, blah, blah.

No wonder these people have to come up with such great stories as what Obama's pastor thinks or whether Hillary is paying her bills. THERE'S NOTHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT. Even McCain's having a hard time getting any run, and he's the freakin' Republican nominee for chrissakes, after nearly being out of it in the early-going.

I blame all this on the stupid states around the country that just had to move their primaries up to February 5 or before. Just think, week after week there'd be a contest in one state or another, going all the way to June. Florida and Michigan would have counted for something. Instead, we had a frantic Winter followed by a few big contests in the Spring, separated by a month or more. BORING!

Write more blog posts. More often. Or, at least get his minions to do it.

Hey, at least I got the pink theme this week. :)
