In the East, at least, it's a good morning to stay inside and enjoy your favorite morning program. The weather is closing down everything and I'm going to tune in Imus in a few minutes while I bake some banana bread. Yummy!

The Daily Imus
(from the website)
Theres one thing you can count on... this wont be another touchy, feely political infomercial!!! Tune in on Thursday (7:27am eastern) as IMUS welcomes Sen. John Kerry, who in a love fest chat with Tim Russert on Meet The Press this past weekend, announced he was running for the White House. IMUS will grill the Senator from Massachusetts on his positions on Homeland Security, the death penalty, abortion, Iraq, the economy... and whether he has the courage to take his partys lead and stand up to the popularity of President Bush.
Later on, hear the political buzz Kerrys announcement has created, HARDBALL style from MSNBCs Chris Matthews (8:27am eastern). Matthews will also talk about his new best selling book (which the I-MAN gives an enthusiastic thumbs up) and his HARDBALL college tour series which welcomes former GE chief Jack Welch (wed night, 8pm, MSNBC).
All this, plus the latest news headlines from around the world, when IMUS on MSNBC kicks off at 6am eastern.

I lifted your 'FnF' moniker. Hope you didn't have a copyright on it.

OK. There is about four inches of dry snow on the ground and it's still coming down. I'm off to the banana bread now.

This should be very interesting Imus morning, at least with Mathews (who will suck up to Imus), and Kerry, who will gracefully sidestep any comment on the military records of others. No doubt Imus will continue to compare Kerry's military record with President Bush's...which by the way, is why Kerry will be the democrat nominee. However nebulous the reasoning, he's the only democrat the DNC can put up against Commander In Chief Bush in 2004.

I hope it stops snowing up there by the weekend. I'm driving up to SW Virginia from Houston this Saturday. I think Imus will go easy on Kerry this morning. Imus just said he's voting for GWB in 2004.

I think Imus just wants to see a lot of controversy that will give him material for his show. The I Man is pretty high on W.

Kerry blaming tax cut for loss of surplus. This guy is an economic illiterate.
Kerry is a mile wide and an inch deep. I say bring him on. He's a smart guy. Maybe too smart by half and he doesn't believe in most of the things he says. Besides, Hillary is going to burn him if he get too close to challenging Bush in '04. It wouldn't fit into her plans.
Kerry is a smart guy. He is also very arrogant. In the end, his arrogance will get him. Not to mention his socialist agenda.
OK, it's over to C-SPAN to see it snowing behind Norm Coleman on C-SPAN.
Sen. Norm Coleman, Sid's first cousin.
If he thinks he can take W head on in 04 he is crazier than I thought. Here is what I think he is doing. He is trying to carve out a position to fence off Hillary, even if it means fighting her for the 08 nomination.
Sid probably doesn't even know that Coleman is on C-SPAN. Poor Sid probably doesn't even know there is a C-SPAN. Where is Sid going this weekend? Some beauty contest in the Bahamas. Wait a minute. Did I say poor Sid?
C-SPAN sure lets the DemoRats overload the phone lines.
Well I listened to Sen. Ketchup on IMUS and didn't hear much new.
When asked about his comments saying that IRAQ is just a cover-up for a bad economy. First he denied saying it, then went through the same speech gain.
IMUS ranting about the people sending him instant messages. Just don't do it. It annoys me (So I say keep it up).
I think I heard FnF say the Dick Morris is coming up.

Dick Morris hinting that Al Gore might retire from politics.
Al say it's not so! We need you.

Morris saying the RATs shouldn't go against Bush on IRAQ. It's a losing position. Calling Kerry a small DuCacus (spelling?).

Like I said before. Kerry is a front man for Hillary! . Of course, he doesn't want to be. He'll be a loser with a big L.
The Instant Messaging thing is just a shtick. Matthews should be comin' up.
Debate just started on C-SPAN between Weber and Clayton.
Just an observation which has been made before. All of NOW's (NAGs as Rush calls them) members are so ugly.
I that her hair or a hat? She reminds me of that movie where Dustin Hoffman was in drag? Mrs. something.
I'm not clear on that. What is the difference between holding a gun to someone's head to make them write something vs. holding a gun to their head and forcing them to say something?
IT'S SNOWING!!!!!!!!!! :)
Looking at the set on MSNBC I see it is still snowing on Capitol Hill. It has just now stopped about 25 miles south of there in Prince William County.
I decided to stay home today because we were supposed to get a little snow later this afternoon here in northwest Connecticut.
Seeing that we've already got an inch and it's coming down pretty good looks like the weatherman is wrong again.

I think it's almost a sure thing that Al won't run.
His booksales are disasterous, he's become a running joke, he's toast. Everyone knows the only reason he polls high among democrats is because of name recognition.
Kerry will be the democrat's nominee, probably with John Edwards as his veep, and that would be strictly because of geography, trying for some southern votes. Hillary doesn't care...smart money says Bush will win re-election no matter who runs, but Kerry with his military record will make the best showing against him, and Hillary will be ready for 2008.
Running and losing against Bush won't hurt Kerry, I'm sure he figures he and Hillary can duke out the 2008 primaries when the time comes.
