Yasser Arafat has died – UPDATED

George Bush was just informed by a reporter (Bill Sammon from the Washington Times) at his press conference that Yasser Arafat has died. He was asked what his reaction is. George Bush said, “God bless his soul.”

Right answer Mr. Bush.

Update: I tried to update this at 11 cst, but then the power went out. Bill Sammon was informed by the AP that Yasser Arafat had died and asked his question of the President. Further reports have it that Yasser Arafat is in very grave condition. President Bush still had the right answer. 12:21 cst.

Finally Dead at approx 3:30 am Paris Time – November 11, 2004

Change the Primary System

We need to change the primary election system. I would suggest regionalizing the primaries, set up four distinct regions in the US. Hold the primaries over four consecutive weeks in March or April. Rotate the regions on a two- year basis so that each region has a chance to be first in the Presidential election years and the off-year elections. John Kerry had the nomination before Illinois held its primary. Illinois only cemented it in.
