I read yesterday in the NY Times that Caroline Kennedy is declining to disclose some pretty basic information, pursuant to her pursuit of the NY Senate seat vacated by Hillary Clinton. I can understand her reticence, from a personal preference point of view – but then I haven’t asked a Governor to nominate me to a Senate seat. (Indeed, I don’t think I would even know how to get such a request heard by a governor!).
Speaking of which, here’s a photo of me, doctored by HollyCornblog, which should put to rest any rumors about my seeking to unseat Judd Gregg in the 2010 NH Senatorial race. I don’t know how, or why, this rumor got started … but let’s put it to bed right here, okay? Surely someone who owns glasses like THESE should not be representing the people of NH in Washington! (Although odder things have happened, I must admit … and I do think that Princess Sparkle Pony would approve of the rig!)
Meanwhile, in other election news, I read the following:
“In many other countries it would be a slam-dunk for the opposition: The president is increasingly unpopular, his economic policies are blamed for 30 percent annual inflation and his foreign policy has left the country more isolated than at any time in recent memory.”
Might this be about the US elections in 2004? Hmmm. Minus the inflation, maybe. But no – it’s actually about Iran’s upcoming elections, which are 6 months away. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is quite unpopular … but still the guy to beat. Sound familiar? Hope the Iranians do better than we did!
Oh, and speaking of Sparkle Pony … want a Bush Shoe?
