How I feel about it all: impressedimpressed
Soundtrack: Sen. John Edwards talking, Dem. Candidate's debate
Y'know what? I think the guy's a bit of a loose cannon, and I'm not gonna vote for him.

But god. Al Sharpton is right. We're making the presidency about how much money a candidate has.

I think that Rev. Sharpton's the voice of what some people want to say but don't. His words have the ring of truth more than not.

His experience and knowledge aren't there. But he can speak it. Preach, Reverend, Preach.

I hope when Dean's elected he finds a place for Rev. Sharpton. Really.

Okay, peacey. You may cart me off to the funny farm now.

*moves over, makes room*

I'm not saying that Sharpton should be Secretary of State, or anything. But couldn't he be Federal Philosopher or something? Really, some kind of consultant.

*Head in hands*

*headdesk* Oh man. Man, oh man, oh man. I saw the warning signs but I did nothing, so I partially blame myself. I was going to try an intervention but I won't waste my time. It's so sad. She was rational for so long, but inch by inch she edged closer to the brink. It's finally happened and there's nothing I can do now. She's finally lost her mind. Plummeted right over the edge of sanity into the great abyss. She actually *believes* Dean will be elected. She wants him to find a place in government for *Al Sharpton*.

*pause*

I don't know whether to cry......or laugh my friggin ass off. ;)

Calling Al Sharpton a bit of a loose cannon is like calling Rush Limbaugh a bit conservative. He may have some good ideas but, in my opinion, he should never be in charge of anything.

Rush and his ilk breed hate and so does Al Sharpton. It's a different kind of hate, but it's hate nonetheless.

I'm slowing making my way onto the Howard Dean bandwagon but appointing Mr. Sharpton to any position in his administration would cause me to jump off immediately.

You may have a point. But can't we keep him around so he can say what we all want to say but don't say?

It's been that way for a long time...

I know what you mean about feeling badly that the amount of money a candidate has is a huge factor in a race, but this is nothing new.

What's different I think about the Dean campaign is that they have made a sport out of what's usually considered honerous and slightly dirty ie fundraising. They've taken a few hundred pages from the grassroots fundraisers guide which say basically people like to be asked to be part of something.

I think that's one of the great things about the Dean campaign. It's not that they've raised a lot of money so much as HOW they've do it and what that says about their confidence in the people of the US.
