Will the American Right ever get over Al Gore? They managed to beat him in an election despite him winning the majority of votes across the country and most likely in Florida too. When the 5-4 decision came down from the Supreme Court (complete with an embarrassing 'NEVER USE THIS AGAIN' sticker emblazoned across the front), did Gore whine and threaten to set up a shadow Government? No, he accepted the decision gracefully and went off to do other things, pausing only occasionally to criticise the build-up to the Iraqi War (and look how well that went!). So, please, get over it, lads. Mind you, in the past week, they have also been smearing 12-year-old children… Yes, it's that time again. And seeing as how the primaries are getting pushed back and back to the point where the 2008 election looks like starting in 2007, I should get started. Work issues probably mean that I won't be able to cover the Conventions in quite as much detail this time around, I can still write reams of gibberish that will make me look a fool in November 2008. Just like last time. Coming soon, then: who will win the primaries! More obvious chatter! Which states will flip, which will stand, and whether we'll be drinking ourselves to oblivion during the night like last time. But: Colbert'08!
