Ok, Howard Dean is like the bad break-up of politicians. You just want it to be over. You NEED to move on. But he keeps emailing me daily. You know, I don't want to be reminded that the relationship failed. He's just to needy. And like all bad break-ups, now he wants money. My money. I gave and gave for that man, and what did I get?

But I'll give him this - he seems to be worried about any debt incurred from his campaign. That's more than you can say for many politicians (John Glenn *still* owes more than $20 MILLION for a run some 20 years ago!!!!!).

2,425 Same-Sex weddings performed in San Francisco in 4 days
4,450 Catholic priests accused of abusing youths since 1950
11,500 *Reported* (not actual) instances of abuse by Catholic priests

as Buddy Cole would say: "Makes you think..."

Two funny (unrelated) things I heard over the weekend:

1. Jason Alexander (on Bill Maher's HBO show) regarding the movie "50 First Dates": "If Adam Sandler beats out Mel Gibson's new movie, it will be the second time a jew killed Christ."

2. The Plain Dealer review of Norah Jones' new disk: "...people say she's understated. That is an understatement."

Joe McCarthy where are you? Who knew you'd be so much better a role model than anyone currently in the Dept. of Justice (which lately is an oxymoron)?

Subpoenaed records on abortion (which last time I checked, was legal....aborition that is, not the access to records)!

Subpoenas by federal prosecutors were issued for antiwar protesters to appear before a grand jury and ordering a university to turn over information about the protesters (which last time I checked, was legal...the protests, not the arrests or turning over of information)!

Gosh Mr. Ashcroft - whose actions are more un-American?

Howard Dean sent me what I'm guessing is an equivalent of a 'Dear John' letter - even though my name isn't John (!). Howie says regarding his upcoming primary in Wisconsin: Anything less will put us out of this race.

It's a shame, really. He had the most backbone of any of the current candidates. I guess that worked against him. I guess voters want someone as milquetoast, well, as all other democrats.......which is how we ended up w/Geo W. in the first place.

At least Dean will have some legacy for changing how political fundraising is done and for energizing younger voters - and unlike Kerry, he didn't have to put a 2nd or 3rd mortgage on his house (which undoubtedly will be paid off by his heiress wife) to keep a campaign afloat. Makes you wonder how Kerry will handle a budget.

Janet's boobie or Michael's 'Jesus Juice': These are my options for "news"? If I *have* to hear stories about a Jackson - can't it be Andrew, Reggie or Mahalia?

For all the media reporting of the implosion of Howard Dean's campaign - it's quite interesting that Kerry has 13 confirmed delegates to Dean's 9. All other candidates have zero. zip. nada. And only 3,498 undecided. Maybe Dean and all the others should just pack it in. They'll NEVER catch Kerry!

And I love how CBS will not run the ad during the Uber Bowl, but has not issue running an ad from Shrub. Could it be that Viacom (which owns CBS) hopes that the FCC will ease regulations on multi-media ownership (which opposed)? NAH - that'd be too easy.
