Sitting in a doctor's waiting room for an hour or so gives you a great opportunity to catch up on magazine reading. I read two back issues of Time and one back issue of Newsweek and all three of them - written well before the primaries started - predicted the meltdown of Howard Dean. The guy is absolutely unelectable. [This is one of the articles. Unfortunately, you have to pay to read the whole thing. Maybe when I go back to the doctor's office tomorrow, I'll "borrow" it.] Uh...Dean seems to have a scatalogical fetish.
