What's That Sound?


It's the sound of me doing the Happy Dance.

Kim and I have CNN on right now, to catch the returns from the New Hampshire primaries.

What am I so happy about?

First, dirtbag Rudy Guliani is fighting with joke candidate Ron Paul for fourth place, with 8 or 9 percent. Remember a few months ago when pundits had annointed Guliani as the Republican candidate?

I guess having been mayor of New York City on 9/11 wasn't enough, was it? I guess, in the end, substance trumps imagery. At least sometimes.

But the icing on the cake is that Fred Thompson, whom pundits had also annointed as the Republican candidate, has fewer than a thousand votes. I think Elvis got more write-in votes than that today in New Hampshire.

That's some sweet news, isn't it?

Thank goodness Rudy G looks to be out of the running.

Rudy's sleazy mug will stick around at least through Florida, and maybe until February 5 when NY has it's primary. Thompson, though, is another matter. Isn't it amazing to see his candidacy evaporate? There's a rightwing talker on radio named Mark Levin who was damn near apoplectic the other night about how the media "is ignoring" the Thompson campaign.

We love hearing about your electoral process, up here. The whole concept of the primaries are so just so bizarre, it's like Christmas and Hallowe'en rolled into one.

I'd like to never hear Rudy Guliani's name again if I live to be 100.

It's going to be quite an interesting primary season, isn't it?

Rudy Guliani -- will fight for Florida and NY (re: Bubs). But they all seem frazzled at this point . . .
