Yes, 2012 has arrived. I’ll type softly for anybody who ushered out 2011 a little too aggressively.

After we spend today getting used to the arrival of 2012 (I love that “new year” smell) it’ll be time to batten down the hatches for what promises to be an interesting, fun, turbulent and important year loaded with primaries, conventions, Supreme Court rulings on Arizona’s immigration law and Obamacare, presidential debates and of course the general election in November.

I’m going to a family party today at my sister’s where I’ll be watching the Lions try to beat the Packers in Green Bay for the first time in 20 years.

For anybody in a newsy mood today, here are a few possible topics for discussion:

–The Des Moines Register released the results of their final poll prior to the Iowa Caucuses on Tuesday: Romney 24, Paul 22, Santorum 15.

–President Obama signed the defense bill yesterday, balks at terrorism provisions.

–Gore-mobiles recalled.

–Kim Jong Il’s son has threatened South Korea already. The UN and Jimmy Carter are of course expected to recommend that South Korea respond by unconditionally surrendering.

–Instructions on how to remove your Obama bumper sticker.

Happy new year all!
