Sun Shiney Thoughts 

I once played Finch in How to Succeed . . . and was described in a review as "Sunny Michael Hill." The same reviewer saw me as Robert in Company a year later and described me as "Shiney Michael Hill." That concerned me a little. If I had to choose, I would definitely take 'Sunny'.

Starting to get the idea that 'Sunny' is John Edwards first name.

But, seriously, is there a possibility that there are a lot of Democrats out there who are still angry about Florida, still waxing wroth over the Patriot Act, still professing fear and trembling over the influence of the religious right and/or neojews in the Administration, still getting up every morning to repeat "W is a drug-taking deserter chimp" three times before their ablutions, and yet . . . and yet . . .

Somewhere, way, way deep in their heart of hearts the belief persists. George W. Bush is the man for CinC. I don't want any Democrat to be the guy between me and the next bomb throwing thug.

And the more dings Kerry takes as a pandering, unprincipled, mumble-mouthed empty suit, the less inevitable he seems and the possibility begins to loom of, not pulling the lever for W, certainly, but maybe staying home. Maybe voting for Nader. Maybe just throwing their hands up in disgust and ignoring the whole sordid mess.

Probably not. I'm just being sunny.
