Political Bitchiness

God, how I love it when politicians and their ilk start talking trash. It's as if they are truly human after all. Case in point:
Ron Reagan, a television commentator, has frequently been critical of Bush. In 2000, he criticized Bush in Philadelphia during the Republican convention, which featured a tribute to his father. "What's his accomplishment?" Reagan asked then. "That he's no longer an obnoxious drunk?"

"Kinder and gentler than who?" Nancy sniffed after [Bush's] convention acceptance speech.
--from Maureen Dowd's "Epitaph and Epigone", NY Times

Being sick sucks. I've had some sort of respiratory infection since Monday evening. I'm sure the hour of tai chi, weight lifting, and 4-mile jog/walk didn't help, particularly after the shopping spree with Pablo on Cedar Springs, and driving to Las Colinas in the afternoon/rush-hour heat with no air conditioning. Yesterday I slept most of the day away, but today I feel much better but still feverish.
