Free Forum Friday…January 13th Edition

(Free Forum Fridays are an open discussion where commenters are invited to bring up topics that may not have been covered in the previous week. Got something on your mind? Throw your opinion out there.)

Friday the 13th. Most of the news these days is campaign related. Newt Gingrich’s Super Pac launched the soon to be infamous half hour video ‘When Mitt Romney Came to Town’ and it is rather damning.

Stephen Colbert announced that he will be getting into the presidential race though no one is certain how seriously to take him. But on the other hand how seriously should we be taking the rest of the candidates?

The Navy rescued some Iranian fishermen from Somali pirates. And this was after a lot of sabre-rattling from Iran.

Hard to believe it but it’s been one year since a schizophrenic kid gunned down 15 people in a Safeway parking lot at a political rally in Tucson. Representative Giffords has made a remarkable comeback. No word yet when or if she’ll return to Congress. She does have a deadline approaching though.

Anything newsworthy happen this past week you want to get off your chest? Let it out.
