Ash Wednesday

On this day of repentance which begins the season of penance, it turns out to be quite appropriate that Ash Wednesday falls after a primary in which a lot of people are thinking about right and wrong, and so many are concerned with the state of the republic.

In Knox County today ought to be a day of beating of the breast for those public officials who were brought down to size by the people-sometimes we all need to be humbled. For Scott Moore, it was the realization that he has some things to make right with the people, and he couldn't do that from the position he was in.

Lent is a time for all of us (yes, dear detractors, liberals, etc., even me) to sit at the school of humility. The election merely brings to light, both on a local and a national level, that all of the things of this world are truly fleeting.

You know that I really hate to be a bum kick but you are so WRONG!
Scott Moore lost his race for GOP nominee of county clerk because the voters loved him! Yes, they loved the job he was doing right where he was and didn't want him to leave that position they loved him so much! Brian tells us all about it here:
Why, David, it is not rocket science, it's merely a checks and balances government thing.
This just maybe his "most awesome post ever!"
Check it out. I'm serious.

I understand that, as a result of Super Tuesday being now so undecided, Louisiana will have a much bigger role to play in things. Our primary is February 9th. I reckon it's Mike Huckabee for me.

I saw that-it is silly, and Brian knows the reason Moore does Scott Moore, which is why he resigned as Chairman of the Knox County Commission yesterday.
