Didn't have time to do much blogging yesterday, so I uh, didn't. School, work, blah blah same old same old.

I'm curious - how many of you actually click on the links that I post? I'm just wondering if I'm wasting my time, leaving comments and ranting about stuff no one seems to care about cuz the blog is "too political". I mean, I'd still do the big stuff but, yeah, just wondering. Leave me a comment or something. Come on, you know you want to. It won't take long, just click it...there ya go, see, now that wasn't so hard now was it?  :)

In case you missed it, Dubya has declared 10/12-10/18 to be "Marriage Protection Week". Yep, that's right, a flat out slap in the face to all those who believe in gay marriage or the right to it at least. I guess he's trying to shore up his core voter contingency...you know, right wing nuts and all.

Speaking of which, the campaign for his (re)election has launched a blog, trying to keep up with the popularity of everyone else in the political field. And I do mean EVERYONE else...the only person who seems not to have put one up at this point is Al Sharpton. Oh, and it's so personal too...nothing but a bunch of press releases and factoids touting Dubya. Nothing, nothing to do with who he is or the intimacy of a blog. I mean, the author of the thing is listed as "GeorgeWBush.com". Jesus. It's not like I expect him to actually do the updates himself but...give it to an intern or something. Seriously. Put a human voice on it.

Bob Graham became the first Dem to drop out of the race for President, stating pretty bluntly that he can't be elected. It sucks that - yet again - there won't be a candidate from Florida as President (then again, we did win Miss America for the first time this year so I guess we should be happy with that. Or something.) but at least we can now count our candidates on two hands and still have a finger left over. All we need now is to have Sharpton, Braun, Kuchnich, Lieberman and Edwards and Gephardt drop out at some point. Cuz, come on folks, you know you won't make it past New Hampshire, quit wasting everyone's time.

Finally, last night I apparently missed - because I had confidence in my team - the greatest collapse (or greatest comeback, depending on your persuasion) in the history of the NFL by the Bucs against the Colts. Blowing a 21 point lead with 4 damn minutes to go, the Bucs ended up losing the freaking game. How sad is that? I hope this isn't a sign of things to come...
