Now where was I?

With Isaac preparing to eclipse Mitt as the name of the week, particularly with New Orleans bracing for an unhappy reminder of Katrina (and George Bush's heckuva job) Republicans are gathering in Tampa to celebrate a man they still haven't warmed up to.

That was clear in the uproar over Todd Akin's not-so-legitimate remarks about women, rape and abortion -- and the fact the Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan has said much the same thing, only more artfully.

And it was brought home again by Romney's "joke" about a birth certificate and the need to swiftly equate that well-calibrated re meat remark with Barack Obama's crack about Seamus on the Romney  roof rack.

Fantasy and reality don't really equate well.

That's apparently made even more clear by one of the Top 10 box office hits of the weekend: "2016", Dinesh D'Sousa's trip down imagination lane to conjure up a vision of America should Obama win a second term.

As a counter, the Obama camp ought to put together "2008", a stroll down memory lane at the impact of eight years of George W. Bush, complete with fiscal meltdowns and real hurricane devastation.

And speaking of video, it was good to return to Scott Brown's latest feel-good opus, taking the truck out to visit a Medal of Honor winner. About the only thing Brown has missed so far in his advertising efforts is surrounding himself with yapping puppies.

Or any discussion of what he actually believes, as defined by his voting record.

Did I miss anything else?

What I hope happens, regardless of who wins is that each side reaches out to the other after the election is over. There clearly is no overwhelming mandate for one side or the other, as is evidenced by the polls, the closeness of Bush/Gore, Scott Browns election and any talk you hear on the "news" shows. Sadly I don't expect that will happen. Instead of slowly moving toward an enlightened future, the liberals will shove solutions down our throat or the conservatives will try to undo any and all legislation.
