I was a tad bit surprised by Howard Dean's low the percentage in the Iowa caucuses. Everything polling as late as Sunday had Kerry, Edwards and Dean somewhat even.

Am I disheartened that Dean placed 3rd? A little. Keep in mind that Clinton also came in 3rd in 1992 and only got 2.8% of the vote to Tom Harkin's 76% (and we all know how well THAT turned out for Tom). Dean also has more than twice the money than Kerry.

Gephardt won in 1988 with 31% to Dukauksis' 22% (again, a 3rd place showing) - and see how well THAT turned out for Dick. I will say I am WAY more surprised that Gephardt was the one to drop-out....and so early. I thought he'd be there through S. Carolina.

Very few people seem to be factoring in that neither Clark nor Lieberman participated in Iowa. The vote would have been somewhat different - though maybe not giving Dean the win.

Well Carmen Electra has won her case to obtain her domain name (which I could not bring myself to visit or even provide the link) from somone who had beat her to the purchase. She got it through 'intellectual property'. See, irony is NOT dead.

In other news the Cleveland Plain Dealer (also not worth linking to) posed the question: 'Should U.S. mount an out-of-this-world mission?'

One of the best answers: "Who would be so foolish as to leave this Earth, where Jesus lived and died, to travel to the moon or Mars where nothing exists? If Jesus wanted life there, he would have provided it."

Where does one even start to comment on this?? I could run on and on like Margaret Cho's blog - but I'm better than that.

View the moveon.org ads. There are a few that are really good - and most are just so-so. Desktop is my favourite. ...and nary a one equating Shrub w/Hitler.

"Return of the King" was by far the best movie of 2003. So incredible. The entire LOTR trilogy may have outdone the wildly popular Kurt Russell/Disney trifecta of the '70s!!!! Hard to believe - but true!!
