I got this news release today, January 8, 2007.

Dr. Selden Spencer, a neurologist from Huxley, Iowa, today announces the formation of a committee to evaluate a second bid for Iowa's 4 th District Congressional seat.

"I am seriously considering another run at the seat currently held by Tom Latham," said Spencer. "My motivation in the face of our country's problems remains strong. We all must keep hopeful that the mistakes of the past can be addressed, but we must do our part here. There is no more immediate and practical thing we can do here in Iowa's Fourth District than to replace our current representative.

"Today I am announcing that a committee has agreed to work with me as we begin the process of making the 4 th District a Democratic voice in Washington." Members of the committee include: John Norris, Sandy Opstvedt, Dr. Robert Gitchell, Debbie Gitchell, and Representative Berkley Bedell.

Ok... Since when does one need a comittee to make the decision of yes or no. This guy is a neurologist? Latham isn't the brightest camper in the park, but I do think a neurologist should be smart enough to make a decision of yes or no. What is a comittee.?. Easy, it is a group of people who get together to try and sold a problem. Deciding whether to run for office isn't a problem. It's a decision. I am announcing the that I shall form a comittee to find out if I shall go to Quik Trip or Caseys tomorrow afternoon to purchase my gas. I shall require $272,563.92 to pay for the study that will be required to find the best route 3 blocks down the street. You can makes check payable to me, anonymous. Thank You.

In a year where Dems mopped the floor nationwide Spencer got his butt beat by 14 points it should not take a committee or even a neurologist very long to realize that a second run is worthless. It must be nice to have that kind of cash to take three years off from working to run for office!
