Today is super Tuesday. It is also Fat Tuesday, aka Mardi Gras, aka Shrove Tuesday (though admittedly, I am more about the fat and mardi than I am about being shriven, but that is because I am not such a good person).

It is Super Fat Tuesday, or Super Size Tuesday.

I am gorging myself on treats and political coverage. We can report that sweets, cheese, milk, pepperoni and liquor are up, but we expect their polls to go down over the next 40 days. Hillary and Obama are each winning stuff. McCain is winning a lot of stuff. Huckabee is winning stuff in the South and the NPR people are attributing it to everything but the fact that he is *southern* and southerners like to support their own. I think their reporters must all be from other parts of the land.
