We all figured it would happen sooner or later, especially after the primaries started going sour. Howard Dean announced today he is dropping out of the race for the Democratic party nomination. At first I was devastated, but no, not so much any more. It was bound to happen.
But why did he sink like the Titanic is the question. Was it that yell he gave out?
I should note here that I am a resident of the District (I live on Massachusetts Ave NW...the good end, not the ghetto). And yes, back in the so-called "advisory" primary that preceeded New Hampshire's (in other words, it didn't count) I voted for Howard Dean. It was the only primary that Dean won. Go figure.
What will happen to this country without Dean? And without Astro Turf? Yes, the makers of Astro Turf are declaring bankruptcy.
Thus far the week has been slow in the weird kind of stories I like to comment on, but we shall see what happenens. And in the meantime, if you, dear reader, have any bizarre headlines you'd like to bring to my attention, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
