Stray thought of the day - 02/11

I still have to pause and remember that Obama is Obama's last name. It still sounds to me like a first name. I think it's the fact that it ends with a long "a" sound, whereas his first name sounds like a last name, ending with a hard consonant.

Apparently in high school, he went by "Barry".

Also, Mike Huckabee is still hilarious. Watching him on the Colbert Report using Texas as a piece in air hockey was somehow deeply satisfying and said more about our process than I think was intended.

Deep in my heart I'm waiting for Huckabee to go all out Gomer Pile and lay a full force "Sha-ZAM!" on the general populace.

Yeah, I find Huckabee really friendly, funny, and entertaining when he does interviews. Which only ends up making some of his political views that much more disappointing....
Still, even if Huckabee or McCain (or Huckabee and McCain) were to win, I sitll fell like we'll be so much better off than we were for the last 8 years.
