  7. Oh man, I'm so sick of the attack ads already! In Florida, our corrupt and very wealthy governor appears to be buying the election yet again. Hoping he ends up with egg on his face, but I just don't know.

  8. No yolk, indeed, or too much. A golden-fried offering, Bridget!

  9. I thought there would be egg-throwing before I clicked over. Glad to see that the eggs are sunny side up, even though politics can be so grim.
