I too can see Russia from my back door!

I just had cataract surgery performed on my right eye yesterday, and I mentioned this to a conservative friend of mine.

My friend emailed me back suggesting that if my surgery went well I would probably be able to see things much clearer now and would thus, by definition, probably become a Republican!

I wrote him back and said he was right. I can now see so clearly that when I go to the back of my house and look west across the Intercoatal Waterway I can see all the way to Russia just like Sarah Palin.

P.S. I know a lot of soccer moms and most of the ones I know are a heck of a lot smarter than Sarah Palin. In fact, she has given the term "soccer moms" a bad connotation. Just my thoughts.

P.P.S. By the way, cataract surgery and the medical advances it represents is nothing short of amazing. To be able to operate on such a small, complex organ and to be able to do so on an outpatient basis with little or no pain whatsoever is a testament to how far we have come in medicine in such a relatively short period of time.
