The Stress and Strain of Horseshoes

Mark Comtois at Anchor Rising took the trouble of reporting on the interesting interview between Dan Yorke and Senator Lincoln Chafee a few days ago. I happened to be running some errands and caught a good piece of it myself.

What's interesting is Chafee's no-holds-barred opposition to the war in Iraq. During the discussion he made numerous references to the Vietnam war. Chafee simply is opposed to any war, even, evidently, a war that was triggered by an attack directly on American soil. Yorke actually probes a little into this to his credit.

But what I found to be really astonishing was when Yorke asked Chafee what he felt was a challenging non-political experience (i.e., apart from his numerous mayoral campaigns, and his few Senate races) he said horse-shoeing was a real challenge for him with all the stress and strain of having to be traveling around and living in various states in New England, making choices for himself, and generally being on his own, or words to that effect.

I don't know about you, but that answer really explains a lot to me.
