o bam (iow)a

even though when i heard him speak last month in LA i was less than impressed with tonights winner of the democratic caucus in iowa

and even though if the election was held tonight i wouldnt vote for him

because i dont think hes truly serious about getting us out of the iraq civil war pronto

and because i dont believe that he is even slightly interested in stopping this madness of pretending that we can be the policeman of the world,

which is bankrupting this country

and causing the world to fucking hate us, rightfully.

but if you dont think im happy that a black man from chicago won handily in a place like iowa, for president of the united states, then you dont know me very well.

how john mccain got 13% of republican voters is baffling because it means the mr matt welch hasnt sold very many of his books – which means there are lots to sell buddy

and its also fascinating that the people of iowa had 13% of their voters give the nod to that dude from Law & Order

n people call me crazy.

back to tonight’s winner, ms huffington has this to say:

Even if your candidate didn’t win tonight, you have reason to celebrate. We all do.

Barack Obama’s stirring victory in Iowa — down home, folksy, farm-fed, Midwestern, and 92 percent white Iowa — says a lot about America, and also about the current mindset of the American voter.

Because tonight voters decided that they didn’t want to look back. They wanted to look into the future — as if a country exhausted by the last seven years wanted to recapture its youth.

and of course she has more here

a very interesting thing is happening

last night you may have seen Jay Leno return to network latenight talk show mediocrity. you might have also seen Dave Letterman rocking the beard.

Jay, though had an interesting guest, less than 24 hours before the all-important Iowa Caucus. He had born-again preacher Mike Huckabee on the show.

Not only did he give Huckabee a bunch of softball questions, but then invited him to do a blues jam with Kevin Eubanks and his band.

a band whose regular bass player was playing right along with the presidential candidate.


last night Larry King interviewed Ron Paul.

but for some reason CNN and King refused to air the Paul interview.

if Leno gets to air his interview with Huckabee, why can’t CNN air their interview with Paul?

now when people say, “who cares about Ron Paul, he doesn’t do well in the polls,” maybe you should ask yourself, “how can a guy do well in public opinion polls if he gets cockblocked from getting on the air?” meanwhile when people actually do partake in the polls, if he does well, those polls are poo-pooed.

if Ron Paul can get a few thousand people to vote on the CNN poll, how come NO OTHER candidate can do the same? What is it about this man that his supporters are the only ones who know how to vote online? Or could it possibly be that he actually has real people behind him, thus all the millions that he’s raised. Or is that a hoax too?

to the left is the Larry King poll that you can partake in now, by clicking here. and below is the interview that CNN refuses to put on their air.

did i tell you i have an iPhone?

i do, and it took some pics of TO too. take it away, phoney:

this is where tony had two of his favorite meals. it was a Texas rib place. here he saw the Leafs go into overtime

they had Americas Funniest Videos up top for the ladies
and hockey down at the bottom for the gents.
yes people took their wives/lovers to the rib joint to watch the game

you cant buy booze at grocery stores. so if you want beer for your home
or for your hotel party, you have to go to either a gov’t liquor store
or to a private liquor store who charges you double the price.
this was the government liquor store on new years eve at Union Station
the lines went out the door, but everyone was very cool aboooot it.

this little angel was not allowed to drink, so she got her kicks from her lil sled

duane was good enough to call raymi to ask her if Tokyo Sushi was worth it
she said yes, she was wrong.

for some reason tony likes taking pictures of slush

and chinese tourists in the subway. the subway is only two lines. one along one road
and the other that goes up and down. and its $2.75 each way. but lots of people take it.

appitizers at the thai place with christie st hottie et duane

centre and neighbourhoods? ahhhhh so lovely.

tony stayed at the intercontinental downtown on front street.
its a $225 hotel that he got for $120 a night thanks to priceline.com

adios for now,

love the iPhone
