Will reality and politics collide?
I can't help myself, I've been watching the dance of the politicians. Maybe it's that time spent in Texas, where so many of this years crop have sprouted up. Of course, while I've been enjoying warm southern weather, politicians of all stripes have been trudging through the frozen snows of New Hampshire. Somehow that amuses the heck out of me.
Don't worry all you politicians. I'll be in New Hampshire when it's time to vote in the primaries. Then again, maybe they should worry. Political campaigns come to my home state to die. I plan on doing my part to kill a few of them.
One of my big guidelines will be if the politician has any sort of connection to reality. There are a lot of fine speeches coming out of their mouths. There are some grand and interesting ideas bouncing around. The problem is that most of those ideas have a lot more in common with fantasy than reality. Most of those politicians appear to live in a world totally unrelated to the reality of my world.
Right now I'm not even going to single out any particular politician. Besides, after New Hampshire gets through with them, the field will be a lot smaller. You are welcome.
