The rain eased up around seven-thirty or eight o’clock this morning. The creek was running well over bank full, the barr ditches were hustling to handle the influx and the culvert under the road was nine tenths full.
I’m glad I cleaned the creek bottom last fall. Floods were a distinct possibility.
Currently they are preparing the Indy and introducing the drivers. But, as a political junky of a mild sort I had to immerse myself in FOX News this morning and listen to the pundits spout fore knowledge of whatever political.
One wonders, mildly, when the pundits talk of wishy-washy politicos changing their minds on a position and dunning them on “I was for it before I was against it.”, and then start talking about “Swing States”.
So just what is a swing state.
First and foremost it is either a Red State or a Blue State. And who assigns the color to a particular state?
Anyhow, when a Red State or a Blue State votes against its assigned color it becomes Purple.
Indicating a change of mind on a candidate or subject.
Which, if one listens to the pundits, makes that State wishy-washy. Or so one must think.
I keep waiting to be told that from now on I cannot remain registered as a Republican, and can not call myself conservative, but must register with all the TV stations and politicians as a Purple Person and must suffer all the pundits advertisements and spams trying to convince me to vote Red or Blue.
That’s a cheap color for the third party, the Tea Party, to glom onto and use.
