I must admit to a feeling of peace having spent two weeks in the land of Van Gogh and Cezanne without news or e-mail. Hard to beat it, although the news upon returning that the Washington Post-ABC poll finding 57 percent disapproving President Bush made me smile. And, importantly, 77 percent of Democrats are upset that congressional "leadership" is too tepid in opposing the president. They have caught up with Fighting Bob.
Good news. The congressional delegation speaking at Bob Fest--Conyers, Obey, Moore, Baldwin and Sanders--will not be accused of being too tepid. And, frankly, I can't wait to hear Hightower again along with Amy Goodman. Nice to have people we can count on.
In the meantime, Wisconsin's poverty rate increase was number one in the nation. How do we cope? How about antother tax break, power line, or voter ID bill? Whoa Nelly. Cezanne knew something.
