Random Thoughts

- Man, I've got allergies today like nobody's business. - I'm signed up to run the White Rock Half Marathon on Sunday and the forecast is for high winds and rain. - I learned the hard way this weekend that an outdoor string of lights has its own built in fuse. - North Texas plays the Evil Empire in basketball tonight but probably won't watch it - I think the phone call from Jenna Bush to her parents on the Ellen show today wasn't an impromptu call at all (saw it on The Today Show this morning.) - I bet that Mike Huckabee wins the Republican nomination. - Learned the other day at the courthouse that Santa doesn't handle everyone's presents the same way. With some kinds the gifts are neatly wrapped, at other houses no wrapping paper is used, and in others they are just covered up with paper or a blanket. - "No Country For Old Men" looks pretty good. - My cruise control wouldn't work the other day. It drove me nuts not to have it. But it came back to life. - I noticed there was a 30 minute Shrek Christmas cartoon on the other night ("Shrek The Halls") that ended up the #3 most watched prime time show. Charlie Brown came in at #15. - The Wise County Courthouse has never pushed the limits with religious theme decorations. Just lights and "Happy Holidays."

Barry, it is way too early to predict nomination winner. All the scandal sheets are working overtime (Karl Rove proved how successfull destroying your opponent with irrelevant data can be)

These 20 people have a marathon of their own to survive.

6:16- anyone at any time can "predict." Stepping out in front and predicting (without endorsing) Huckabee may not be that outrageous. The rest of the Repubs all have serious flaws. I don't think the Dems have settled on their choice yet, either.

Let me throw out another prospect - Bloomberg. He may be the most qualified and broadly acceptable of the bunch but would have to run as an Independent. And he's got enough spare change to finance it himself.

Mike Huckabee is amazing...


anyone who has seen his commercial with Chuck Norris would definitely agree...

I think this commercial warrants its own thread

Allegies? Mountain Cedar AND Ragweed are both in the air!

Yeah. I'm suffering from some allegories myself.

I'm a conservative but I am wondering how the heck Huckabee is going to finance the country without income taxes.

Hope your allergies clear up, bubear
