all hope is pretty much lost

so i was reading the reno gazette journal, the extemely mediocre local paper yesterday, and happened upon a little article on the back page stating that the provisional authority has dramatically changed plans and will have the majority of u.s. troops out of iraq by july. this goes against most of what bush has been braying recently, about not letting the terrorists cow us and other crap.
i thought about it as i bussed tables at p.f. changs superexpensive chinese food restaurant, and came to feel that the timing will coincide nicely with the upcoming presidential elections. if our withdrawl is covered at all like afghanistan was covered in the mainstream press, which is to say, dropped like a drying turd, then i see little chance of a democrat stepping up and taking the president's office. which amazes me, because the country seems so much worse then it was 4 years ago. i never begrudged clinton his infidelities so much, it's not like more then half of married couples have similar "activities," but now i do cause it helped the republicans get into office, riding a way of fakey morality.
listened to howard dean on the radio, man i would like to have him as president. several friends around here in reno are gonna make a big effort to try and get apathetic mofos to vote, and probably some will, but still we will be disappointed and 4 more years of bush and canada is sounding better and better.
ok, enough politics, other things in my life: working 4 jobs, that's nutz. saving well though. going to a.k. with shannen the 26th through the 30 of december, it's gonna be nice up there, and cold as hell. also tryin to confirm that i'll be able to go to israel in february, that should be a good trip, i'll see ran and go scuba diving and lots of good stuff.
ok, be well.
