Hey! It’s Super Tuesday. Woo-wee…10 states get to tell the nation who they will sorta-kinda support for the Republican nomination. I don’t want to say that the whole primary process so far has been a demonstration of the gang who not only couldn’t shoot straight, but didn’t have any bullets, but I just did. I don’t think I can remember a poorly run primary season as this one. The back and forth between the candidates has been, well, sad. It isn’t generating excitement that’s for sure. The Obama-Clinton battles stoked enthusiasm and was classy to watch. This year…not so much. Newt thinks he will have “March Momentum” for the rest of this month after his win in Georgia. I hope so. I love what Newt has to say, his sweeping generalities are so interesting and so easy to pick apart. We shall see, won’t we.

By the way whoever  laid out the lectionary (Lectionary: 231) for this year was psychic. Most of the daily readings have a direct correlation to what is actually happening in the world, this country and on radio…really? Check out what Matthew has to say today:

“The greatest among you must be your servant.
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled;
but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”(Matthew 23)

Sooooo???? I’m just wondering what it will take to realize that humility works. Right now in Ohio, there is a tremendous amount of buyers regret over John Kasich. Former governor Ted Strickland would beat Kasich today by nearly 30 points. People don’t want jackasses who care little for the working man and more for the shadowy corporation. Folks want someone like them who knows and feels what they know and feel. So far in Wisconsin, Ohio, Arizona and other places, people are asking for humility and a change back. I know humility sounds almost un-American, but humility lasts and connects. Power needs to be tempered with humility. I know its only March, but don’t you feel that Obama looks and sounds like a president?

 

and so it goes…
