Okay okay I DID get under the desk when Newtie and I were alone in the Speaker's chamber, just for a minute for old times' sake AS A JOKE!!! We hardly had time for him to give into my core principles before he had to give his speech to the Freshman Class of 2010. (Yes, that's a POLITICO link they've been sooo nice lately I want them to have ALL the props.)
But enough about that -- it was like old times but then again it was kind of NOT. And Newtie didn't want to think about the parts after like the resignation and the fines and how Tom Delay went on Dancing with the Stars and is now out on probation. A while ago I told Newtie I don't even remember what Tom did wrong and Newtie said "well Tom is a sumbitch but he's one of us, ha ha" and then he wanted to play Drill Here.
Note to self: I wonder if Tom could get us in touch with T. Boone Pickens.
One other thing diary. I'm keeping tabs on the other spouses in the so-called campaign and OMG can you BUHlieve what Mrs. Haley Barbour said!
(CNN)- The wife of Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour says she is "horrified" that her husband is seriously considering a bid for the presidency.
In an interview with CNN affiliate WLOX in Biloxi, Marsha Barbour admitted the "overwhelming" task of a presidential run is something she may not quite be ready for.
"It's been a lot to be first lady of the state of Mississippi and this would be 50 times bigger," she said. "It's a huge sacrifice for a family to make."
The governor is still testing the waters of a potential bid for the 2012 Republican nomination and has made no formal announcement regarding his intentions.
But Marsha Barbour revealed she is wary of a 10-year commitment she believes would accompany a presidential run - and, presumably, two terms in office - during "the last part of our productive lives."
Despite her hesitation, Barbour said that the final decision is up to her husband.
"That's a commitment that I am praying about," she said.
"And if God and Haley decide to do it, I'm sure God will give me strength to be a good partner."
