Rumsfeld resigned! I think that should be on the list in blue.

Kaethe, I know! What is that about? I didn't see it coming at all, but it's starting to feel like Christmas.

"Why Mommy is a Democrat" is a book Bud (and Mom-nos) may enjoy. Enjoying the blog!

Even those of us north of the 49th are celebrating Rumsfeld's departure...

As for the democrats, I wish! We live in total RED conservative country up here. Sadly, there are too few of us who sport the lack of a red-neck...but we'll keep on working on it.

The races were close. I went to bed still worried. I was much happier when I woke up and saw the final results.

And here in Nebraska, Ben Nelson (D) beat the jiminy out of Pete Ricketts (R) for Senate.
