Just a Thought

First, let me preface this by saying that I attended the Democratic caucus last night, and that I hope to post comments (and photos) about that later.

Right now, though, I just want to share a thought.

If I was going to write a novel about a political campaign--or really, a novel about just about anything, I don't think I could come up with better hero/villain names than Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney. "Mike Huckabee" sounds like he'd be a humble, good-natured, boy-next-door type who'd do just about anything to help a friend. "Mitt Romney" sounds sinister, like a name you'd give that creep who wouldn't stop his car for the mama duck and her ducklings crossing the road.

In reality, I find them both scary. But still.

Mitt Romney is also a good "1930s boxer, who never gets a break" name.
