Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?


He he. While the Dean is out he gave me the keys to his blog, and boy will he be sorry. I have a proclivity for shooting my mouth off, being ignorant, and making blanket statements that piss people off. Actually I guess it will be like the Dean is still here.

Anyway, I'll try to stay on the topic of politics and not wander all over the place, but I promise nothing! Set expectations to minimum amplitude.

This post is about my favorite political cartoonist, Tom Tomorrow. His comic has moved around alot and tracking it down again has been difficult. Click on the link to read his hilarious observations and laugh and possibly cry. This week was a special treat, because one of my favorite geek heroes Doctor Who (David Tennant Style) showed up in the comic.

"Hey, you got liberal comedy in my Sci-Fi!"
"I think it was you that got Sci-Fi in my liberal comedy!"
"Wait, this tastes good. . ."

It's like having Reese's for the first time.

Ladies and gentlemen, I'll be brief. The issue here is not whether we broke a few rules, or took a few liberties with our female party guests.. we did

I'll be in North Carolina at a Dean's conference for about a week and doubt I'll be anywhere near a computer. No blog updates until I get back.

I'll be giving a speech on Saturday night entitled "Double Secret Probation: Discipline as the Key to Maintaining Order on Campus."

While I'm gone Greg Marmalard will in charge even though he's a sneaky little shit. You twerps behave yourselves or you'll be out of here like shit through a goose.

If fizzies are dropped on the swim meet or medical school cadavers delivered to the alumni dinner I'll know who to blame.

Oh, and keep Neidermeyer's horse out of my office. That thing has a bad heart.

Read what my medal says: "Courage". Ain't it the truth? Ain't it the truth?

Thank you Senator Clinton.

I thought the speech yesterday was wonderful.

Not because you conceded. But because you insisted we're all in this together.

At times watching that speech I was moved to the point of tears, but I do have small confession- there were a couple of occasions when my mind wandered and I focused on the enthusiastic crowd of your supporters and thought of John McCain of all people.

I don't think he and his Republican party, George Bush's Republican party, have a clue what's coming at them.

There is a tsunami of change sweeping over this country.

It will be a hell of a lot of work and a tough fight to win the presidency. It's for means certain. I'm realistic about that.

But I still hold out hope that together as Democrats Americans we can end this horrible period in our country's history.

Do you remember the sorry everybody photo pages where we left our apoligies to the world at the results of the 2004 elections?

We -Hillary Clinton and all of her loyal supporters and everybody else who wants to undo the Bush presidency - have a chance to make it up to the world.

Thank you for that Hillary.
