My progress this week

Well, it's now day four without coffee. As I write this it's 4:57 in the afternoon and I don't have a headache. I can honestly say that I was not groggy this morning either.
While I've never been a morning person, I found that during the time I was drinking coffee, I was always groggy in the morning.
At any rate, today has been a good day. Feeling pretty good.
I'll head out of work in a bit and then head to the gym. It's an arm day, which is always fun. Get to blast those tris and bis with a bunch of reps, make 'em look good and pumped. Okay, I'll stop being dumb now.
On to political news, way to go Tom Delay! I've been so sick of his Tom "I'm A Better American Than You Are" Delay routine for soooo long it makes me sick. It was interesting to listen to his speech yesterday talking about a left wing conspiracy. My, my, how things have changed. Was it really seven years ago when Hillary said there was a vast right wing conspiracy out to get them, and the one leading that charge was Mr. Delay, was it not?
All in all, I think the reds are starting to fall apart. I don't mean that this is the end of the Republican party, quite the opposite. This might just be the start of the rift in that party that has needed to happen for a long time. The true Republicans can stay as Republicans, and the Neo-Cons will split and hopefully form their own political party. Neo-Conservative party of Neo-Republican party, whatever. Things will be interested to view from afar, and I'm glad I'm not in the thick of it.
However, I really hope that the Democrats don't screw this up by trying to take advantage of this in the wrong way. Sometimes to just need to left things happen and reinforce your "I told you so" message. No slogans are needed. No mass mailers trumpeting the coming of the end. Just good, clean, politics and present ideas and solutions to the problems currently happening. People will come around and by this time next year we'll be positioned to take quite a few seats back in the House and Senate.
I'm not saying we'll get the majority, because we won't. However, the closer to 50/50 the better in my view.
I'm out.
