Short Attention Span Musing...

...Congrats go out to the Phoenix Mercury on their hard-fought victory over the Detroit Shock in the WNBA's championship series.

Has anybody noticed that the two championships won by the Mercury and the Diamondbacks in just over 20 combined seasons of existence are two more than those won by the Suns and Cardinals in nearly 60 years in the Valley?

Of course, with the Suns, at least each season starts out with the hope of a playoff run; with the Cards, the most common hope is that the team finishes the season with the same coach that it started with.

....Reason #436 that the Republican Senator Larry Craig is a never-ending nightmare for the GOP?

The ACLU is weighing in on the matter, on his side.

It's sort of difficult to express unbridled glee in a written post, but if I could... :)))

...Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton unveiled her health care plan; the best thing that can be said about it is that the Republicans hate it as much as her Democratic rivals.

Any plan that *mandates* that people buy health care insurance is less devoted to healthy people than it is to healthy profits for insurance companies.

By comparison, John Edwards promises to propose a plan "that ends health care coverage for the president, all members of Congress, and all senior political appointees in both branches of government on July 20th, 2009 - unless we have passed universal health care reform."

Edwards' idea would never pass Congress (Hell, I'm not even sure if it is Constitutional), but he's definitely on to something there...
