The Cardinals lost another tough one. It seems like most losses lately are tough. Maybe it's just that I'm actually starting to think they may have a shot at the playoffs. I don't understand LaRussa's pitching decision. He wants 13 arms in the bullpen and it leaves him a woefully-understaffed bench. Looper, a pitcher, had to pinch hit in the 10th...in the 10th? His bench was already gone by then. That's not good. If the bullpen is really that unreliable that he needs 13 pitchers, it's time to get some new pitchers!

Stay Away, Senator
The Washington Times broke this story as far as I know... Iowa's most nationally-known Senator Chuck Grassley isn't worthy of being a delegate at the Republican National Convention, or so it appears. The article says the Christian right of the party decided Grassley shouldn't get voting privileges at the convention.
This further plays out the rift between the Christian right and the rest of the party in the state. Is this the type of move that will help the party get McCain the most votes in Iowa and help republicans take back the state house and senate? Or will this just implode the party for an absolute election day butt-whippin' and a bigger blood bath afterwards? I suppose we will know in a few months.
Speaking of McCain...what do you think of the overall coverage of the presidential race so far? The Associated Press has this story out citing a non-partisan study that shows Obama is getting nearly twice the press attention McCain is. Is that fair?
