“My eye itches,” eight-year-old Camille said one morning as she rolled out of bed.
“Scratch it,” I said without looking at her. It was a cool March morning, and my husband and I were headed out of town for the Southern Republican Leadership Conference in Memphis, where we were “working” the first Presidential straw poll of the 2008 season. Even though it was two years before the election, I’d spent the last few months trying to get people to vote for Mitt Romney. No, not Matt. Mitt. And yes, he’s from Massachusetts.

We’ve gotten many sweet e-mails from readers asking us not to shut down entirely, and we promise that we won’t. David and I will keep writing. … Read the Rest »
We took our family to Boston for what we hoped would be a victory celebration. It wasn’t. While we waited for Gov. Romney to give his concession speech, some reporters documented our distress for posterity. Above is our whole family (with my older daughter in the background) minus my four year old who stayed back home in Tennessee

Kari Wells Stolworthy, of Franklin, Tennessee, sent me this photo of two pumpkins sitting on her porch! Are there others who’ve made a political statement with our jack-o-lanterns?
Great job, Kari… though I doubt there are too many liberals in your neighborhood, since you live in Williamson County!… Read the Rest »
