Holiday Time Catch-Up

Since last posting, a pair of episodes aired on KUAF, both based around the political season we find ourselves in.

The November episode discussed the "unique" Chris Christie and how his pledge to not run reminded Bill of the great Sherman-esque proclamation of William Sherman in the late 19th century that he indeed would not run for President and if nominated would not serve.

The December episode looked at acrimonious political factions, and the modern belief that the Tea Party might cost the Republicans a "good" candidate unwilling to meet the splinter group's test. Well, Sherman set the WABAC machine for 1800 -- once again, nothing is new in American history.
