    The alt tag for the first picture should read: ‘Severe determination’.

    I understand that it’s first thing in the morning and all, Wombat, but, come on…jeez…

    What do Mitt Romney and the Kama Sutra have in common?
    Each has more than a 100 positions on just one topic.

    Just thought I’d pass along a joke I heard while waiting for the polls to open…somehow I thought I’d be more fired up about voting this year, but I was wrong.
    From the yard signs this 4 county area is going Santorum/Paul, but it won’t make a difference because this is rural downstate; we never get to decide anything.  
    I noticed my mom has oddly switched from backing Paul (she started out supporting Cain) to being very pro Romney…maybe there is something to that claim of Fox News bias; she watches it round the clock.
