I am really looking forward to it.
It's just a few days away.
New Years- whoopie,
I have bigger things on my mind.
It's the Iowa caucus.
Come on, Wednesday!
I know what you all are thinking.
But, Ruth, the caucus is Tuesday not Wednesday.
I know that.
You were probably thinking that I would be so excited to caucus for Newt Gingrich.
After all, who doesn't want a hobbit for the next president?
Alas, I can not do so.
For I am an Independent and I refuse to change parties to go sit in a room for 2 hours and discuss the candidates before throwing my hat behind someone.
The reason I am excited for Wednesday to get here is the lack of campaign ads,
no entire news casts talking about the candidates,
and no more Iowa polls.
At least for a few months.
Until the nominee has been picked.
But, I can relax for a few months.
It will give my mute button a chance to rest.
Ya know, I am glad we are first in the nation in picking a nominee.
While all the other states are continuing to be bombarded by all these ads, I can sit back and enjoy the fact I don't have to see 'em.
