Now, in a sign of the times, it is happening again, and Hormel is cranking out as much Spam as its workers can produce."
"Two potential candidates will be in Iowa before month’s end, multiple prospects — almost certainly including Sarah Palin — will make high-profile appearances this week at the Republican Governors Association meeting, and Newt Gingrich’s name has already been floated in a Bob Novak column."
