Muzzer has been a bit frazzled lately. I think that writing all those carols over December must've shorted something in her brain.
She is working on remaining calm and collected, but I fear she may be taking it too far. I mean Yoga is one thing, but this is a bit much.
But wait...it is caucus time in Iowa! And she has always been interested in politics. From the time she was a little bitty girl she has enjoyed the theatre that politics in the US provides.
Politics gives her something to get excited about, even now that she is much older! So nostalgia got her bad today, and she started talking about how she wished she lived in Iowa so she could caucus. And then she went into the drawer in her dresser where she keeps her old dance cards and kindergarten report cards and stuff dad got her that she is sentimental about.
She found Dad's button for the 1964 campaign. He thought he was a republican then. He and mother were not dating at the time. A number of years later when they were "courting" she converted him pretty quickly, much to the relief of her whole family.
Then came the "Gene McCarthy" years. As a lover of lost causes, muzzer voted for him. Not once, not twice, but three consecutive presidential elections. And you guys gotta know how hard it is to vote 3rd party in Azrizona. Unless, of course, the party has something to do with Tequila.
But this year, she is confused. So I am helping her with her choices. And to my mind, the strongest contenders in the race this year come from IOWA! They announced their candidacy on their blog today, and I would appreciate your consideration of their qualifications and abilities when you are deciding on your candidate.
Muzzer says they have her vote. I'm not sure that is a good thing. She has only ever voted for a winner in these contests one time. Do you think that is some sort of record? Anyway. Go to visit Butchy and Snickers on their blog and see if you don't agree with me!
