I guess I will keep an eye on the commercials, because with folks spending millions of dollars for 30 seconds of air time they better be good.
Anyway, I was looking over my twitter feeds earlier today and I saw some interesting stories.
The first one involved a toddler who went all O.K. Corral on his own family.
"A 3-year-old boy shot and wounded his father and pregnant mother with a 9 mm handgun that he pulled out of the woman's purse while searching for an iPad, police in New Mexico said on Sunday.
Both parents needed hospital treatment for non-life threatening injuries after the bullet went through his father's buttocks and into his mother's shoulder, Albuquerque Police Department Officer Simon Drobik said.
The woman, who is 8-months-pregnant, is being kept at the hospital for observation. The man has been released, said Drobik, who was first to arrive at the scene of the incident at an Albuquerque motel on Saturday afternoon.
"On the kid's side, it's a horrible accident that happened, but the parents are still culpable," Drobik said. "They should have secured the gun.
The couple could face felony negligence charges. The child does not face criminal charges, Drobik said.
The woman told police she purchased the gun the day before the incident, Drobik said. The man is not legally allowed to have a firearm because he has previously been convicted of a felony crime." [Source]
Oh the joys of gun ownership. So simple even a toddler can do it.
Fortunately both parents will survive. Unfortunately the poor child is only three, and he will probably have to spend at least fifteen more years of his life with these two losers.
Finally, speaking of losers, with Mitt Romney gone the new front-runner in the GOP's primary is Scott Walker.
Scott is the guy who has been breaking the law-- and the unions--- in Wisconsin while pretending to be a governor.
I finally got a chance to see Scott up close and personal earlier today and needless to say I wasn't impressed.
"Wisconsin Governor and fan of pro-union punk bands Scott Walker came into his interview with ABC News’ Martha Raddatz Sunday morning riding a first-place showing in an Iowa GOP poll, perhaps benefiting from the unceremonious exit of Mitt Romney. His celebration stopped short when Raddatz quizzed him on his foreign and domestic policy views.
“You talk about leadership, you talk about big, bold, fresh ideas,” Raddatz said. “What’s your big, bold, fresh idea on Syria?”
When Walker mentioned Obama’s red line, Raddatz interjected. “Let’s not go backward, let’s go forward,” she said.

“I think we need to have an aggressive strategy anywhere in the world,” Walker said.
“What does that mean?” Raddatz insisted. “You don’t think 2,000 airstrikes is taking it to ISIS?”
Eventually Walker said “boots on the ground,” and just as quickly backed away from the suggestion.
Raddatz also pressed Walker for specifics on his immigration views, though couldn’t get any further than that he opposes amnesty, but doesn’t believe in mass deportation, either. “We’ve gotta have a healthy balance,” Walker said. “In the end, we need to enforce the laws in the United States, and we need to find a way for people to have a legitimate legal immigration system, and that doesn’t mean amnesty.”
Walker finished by calling Hillary Clinton the ultimate creature of Washington. [Source]
Yeah, just as I thought. There isn't a whole lot to this guy.
Things are looking better for Jeb and Chris.
