Stevie Joe Frozed

It is January, and Junebug Holler is just about frozed up solid. Junior now has his casts removed and can stumble around on a single crutch yet he, like most of us, prefers the indoors these days. That means things have been fairly quiet here. This gives us time to become depressed about the economy and the choice of presidential candidates.

I'm not sure that it is the lack of sunlight that gets folks down in winter. I think it's being cooped up inside with nothing much to do. Plus, IT'S DAMN COLD! Neither the heater in the Big Blue Wagon nor the furnace inside the Parker Estate seem to be able to break the chill. I'm just gonna go crawl under the covers and cry myself to sleep.

Brrrrrrr!

Stevie Joe's NH Congratulations

Thanks to the good folks of the Granite State for doing their civic duty, and congratulations to Mrs. Clinton and Mr. McCain. There are a few things bothering ol' Stevie Joe, however. First, there are reports that some folks decided to vote for Hillary at the last moment because she cried on the TV. Now, that is just the dumbest reason for voting for someone. Admitting this in public should be grounds for losing one's voting privileges.

Second, exit polls asked voters if they would keep their vote the same if Bill Clinton was also running. Pretty much everyone said that they would not change their vote except for Hillary supporters. Most of them would rather vote for Bill. This, of course, raises the question of whether they are really voting for Hillary or trying to re-elect Bill.

Third, Clinton won New Hampshire yet Obama received more delegates (11 and 12 respectively). This is because of the "super delegates" which are pledged to candidates separate from the primary vote. Seems kind of odd yet there it is. As a result of this super delegate system, Clinton currently leads the delegate count with 183 versus 78 for Obama and 52 for Edwards. Confused yet?

Fourth, speaking of Edwards, I loved his speech after the Iowa caucuses. Unfortunately, he essentially gave the same speech after the New Hampshire primary. John, keep your material up to date.

Anyway you cut it, it's still some exciting stuff!

Yes we can,
Stevie Joe Parker

Stevie Joe's Congratulations

I just want to thank all the kind folks in Iowa who braved a pretty darned cold January evening to help select the next President of the US of A. Congrats to Barack and Mike. Good job, fellas. Oh, and John Edwards had a nice speech (and managed to beat ol' Ms. Inevitable, too).

Thank you and good night!
