Saturday was interesting.
Advertisements [?]
I was sick on Sunday, but Saturday I spent running all over creation taking care of business. (I was twice as busy as normal, because I was supposed to be at an Election Reform meeting on Sunday, but as I said, the virus kind of laid waste to that plan. Sigh.)

Anyway, everywhere I went, politics came up. (Yes, I confess I was frequently an instigator.) I think I talked to at least twenty different people -- at the hair salon, the bank, the retail stores, and even the movie theater -- and here's what they *ALL* said:

They hate Bush, and they aren't too happy with Granholm, either.

I had nothing bad to say about Granholm, and defended her (I thought) fairly vigorously by pointing out that she's stuck with a Republican House and Senate who block her at every turn, but the skepticism this argument was being met with was disheartening. The fines for things have gone up ("But we need the revenue," I pointed out) and the job situation completely bites ("She's working on it -- she got the minimum wage increased!"), and they think after four years she should have accomplished more.

Not *ONE* person who was a fan. Not ONE.

And every single one of these folks *hated* Bush, and the Republicans.

But they aren't planning on voting for Granholm again, either.
