Dear lord it's going to be a long year and a half until the next elections. I'm tired of the campaigning already.

Now, is there any doubt we need campaign reform? The bombarding of the American public by the political machines that have to "get the message out" has begun on all sides.

"When former Gov. Tim Pawlenty announced his presidential exploratory committee via a Facebook message, he was the first ever to do so on the social networking site." And let's hope he has another first in the same fashion, announcing on Facebook, that he is dropping out.

Sarah Palins Maid of Honor can have all the tools in the world at his disposal. His problem is not enough tools. He will not attract Dems or Indies.

We do have an code RED alert here in central Iowa for everyone to bring their kids inside, close their blinds, and lock their doors as Michele Bachmann is in Pella around noon along with some her crazies that follow her around. Check local news when the alert has been lifted.

Yeah, they also use the OLD methods. Tim's campaign called me on my cell yesterday asking for $ while I was on the golf course. I told them to call me back in a year - haven't decided yet.

Pawlenty is the least "social" candidate out there! All the networking will not help him, he will be out after first primary.

Alert lifted, local news in Des Moines showed maybe 20-30 followers there as Michele ranted on about what she didn't have a clue about. You can let your kids out to play and unlock your doors and open you blinds again. You have to understand that those in Pella Iowa still think GWB is a hero......................

Offshore on line $2000.00 contributions from people listed in local phonebook. Some people weren't even aware they'd contributed to the Obama campaign. Hopefully THIS TIME the contribution records will be sealed!
