Moment of Sort-of Truth

At long last we'll have some concrete results, rather than pundit pomposity, to look at after the Iowa caucuses are done tonight. That’s a relief although I’m not looking forward to the endless parsing of the numbers. Seems appropriate that the voting is occurring along with the first blast of Arctic frigidity in these parts. Shopping’s done, partying’s over, and now it’s time for getting through winter somehow, catching up on work and facing the unattractive domestic and international panorama about to be bequeathed to us by the lamest ducks since James Buchanan encouraged the secessionist movement in the 1850s. My only prediction is that 2008 is going to be full of surprises. Pretty safe, eh?
