Not of Obama, but of the US as a whole. While at Outback Saturday, I had a woman come up to me and ask me if I was Joe the Plumber.

This is not some­thing you want to ask some­one like me for myr­iad reasons.

I bit back the harsh­est acid, though, and sim­ply said, “No, I’ve got a col­lege education.”

That put an end to her vapid gush­ing and the con­ver­sa­tion, which was fine with me.

This elec­tion cycle has been going on for two years. It can­not end soon enough. And I believe we need to push our leg­is­la­tors to pass some new elec­toral con­trols — such as no state being allowed to have a pri­mary more than 6 months before elec­tion day; and no cam­paign­ing to begin at all until 9 months before elec­tion day.
