The random goofy stuff. In this case, a dude in New Hampshire decides to take advantage of the political season: just for the heck of it, he decides to find out whether he can get a picture of his baby daughter with *every single one* of the presidential candidates. He got everybody except Fred Thompson, who hasn't spent much time in New Hampshire. And Mike Gravel, because the dad in question considers him "creepy." But everybody else is there.

The resulting pictures are adorably entertaining Americana: Giuliani, alarmed when the baby starts to cry; Hillary Clinton, looking a little uncomfortable but still game; McCain, the old pro, in a great contrast with Giuliani, laughing when the baby is upset to be handed to a strange old man. The best of the lot is a picture of Obama cradling the baby: it's a great picture, and a nice side of Obama.

(And yes, he got Huckabee and Chuck Norris.)

ABC's Rick Klein, liveblogging the New Hampshire primary, had a close encounter of the Kucinich kind. Quoth Klein:

So I'm in the ABC workspace at the Radisson in Manchester, and who walks in but ... Dennis Kucinich. No big deal, right? Lots of candidates milling around these parts these days. But then he proceeds to RAID THE MIXED NUTS CAN on the ABC snack table. Not like a cashew or two — big handfuls. His wife is munching too. This would be the same Dennis Kucinich who FILED FOR A TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST ABC over the weekend to try to block our debate from going forward, arguing that he was being unfairly excluded. I walked over to his wife, Elizabeth, who was also enjoying the snacks. "So sorry," she said, "but we're absolutely starving." I said to her, "Come on, now, you sued us, and now you're stealing our nuts?" She shrugged — semi-apologetically, in my estimation. And with that, Rep. Kucinich grabbed a mini-can of Pringles and walked away.

The internet being what it is, a commenter quickly piped up that "Elizabeth Kucinich can have my nuts any time she pleases." YOU STAY CLASSY, INTERNET.

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
