Super Tuesday! YESS!!!!

Ah, Super Tuesday ... the good stuff for political junkies everywhere. Only on Election Night in November can we addicts wallow in a special frenzied pace that is frenetic even by 24-hour cable news standards!

Coverage started at 5 a.m. EST, and pundits wasted no time in getting revved up. CNN had an entire segment about the anger of the right-wing radio gods (little 'g,' even though they would probably refer to themselves with the big 'G') against John McCain and their determination to derail what appears to be his path to the GOP nomination.

CNN's health reporter, DR. SANJAY GUPTA, is pitching in by breaking down the candidates' health care plans (and by candidates, I mean the Democratic candidates, because the GOP candidates have apparently decided -- to their detriment -- that health care access and affordability is not a pressing issue in the United States).

Even the weather people are getting into the act! Meterologists, normally left out of all the fun, are tying their forecasts about storms across the mid-South to an ALERT to voters in Tennessee and Missouri: GET AND AND VOTE EARLY, because you may not be able to do so later!

SUPER TUESDAY ... the political junkie's crack! Yee-haw!!
