I was going to talk about the polls on the front page of the WCF Courier. I was going to make a comment about how interesting it is that in Waterloo, Braley and Bill Dix are way ahead, but the races are still viewed as hotly contested, but as I opened up the "create" window, this IM exchange occured between Laura and I (I added the links):
Laura: i just got a phone call from my state senator matt mccoy!!
KL: lol, that's great.
Laura: he wants me to have coffee and donuts with him this weekend
Laura: i think i will politely decline, citing my need to work
Laura: saturday morning
Laura: i think
Laura: i stopped listening
Now I'm trying to find out specifics. I wouldn't mind the opportunity to ask Matt McCoy why he lets third graders write his campaign finance reports, takes campaign contributions from energy companies, supports large corporate tax-dollar giveaways and endorses anti choice candidates.
But sadly, I also have to work. I'll probably save my energy.
