Yesterday was Iraqi Election Day. The good news is that only around 40 people were killed, not the bloodbath some were predicting. Congratulations to the Bush Administration on not screwing that up. Now, Mr. President, it's time to get out of there and let them fend for their selves.
Acting Governor Richard Codey (D) has decided not to seek his party's nomination to run for a full term in 2005. Also, Congressman Rob Andrews (D) has decided not to run. Both have yielded to multimillionaire Senator Jon S. Corzine. Corzine is extremely popular in the state and should have no trouble defeating any Republican.
Donnie Fowler (SC) is getting a boost in his race for Chairman of the Democratic Party. Fowler, just in his late 30's, is the son of former DNC Chair Donald Fowler. Today, the executive committee of the Democratic Party's state chairs endorsed Fowler, choosing the young up-and-comer over Governor Howard Dean (VT). This may come down to a three-man race; Dean, Fowler, and former Denver Mayor Wellington Webb (CO). As for me, I've decided I'm going to support Fowler.

Happy 64th Birthday to Vice President Cheney. Although what about the almost 1,500 men who will never see a 64th birthday, Mr. Vice President?
The "King" of the liberal wing of my party is celebrating a birthday soon. Happy early 73rd birthday to Senator Ted Kennedy!
If nothing happens, tomorrow (Feb. 1st) the VHSL team will finally be going to Lebanon to compete in the Academic Bowl. Wish us luck. (Yeah, I know...that's like the fourth time I've said that.)
This will be all for now. Until we meet again.
