Gosh! What an extraordinary couple of days. Barack Obama fell on his toosh at the Democrat convention last night, bless his heart. He sought in vain to recapture his soaring rhetoric of 2008 but failed to ignite any passion. Ann said he made even me crackle with energy by comparison. Maybe my new-found bounce has got something to do with the fact that the Church of the Latter Day Saints is now officially permitting members to consume caffeinated drinks. I have been known for years to enjoy an occasional diet cola, but now I'm free openly to have a Mountain Dew. Golly gosh! Pow! splat! Now that's what I call a doggone can of whoop-a*s!
