I admit it, I have neglected this blog for the past couple of months, but I have been working like two hebrew slaves and a Haitian lately, so I do apologize.
Well, we are about five weeks off of voting for our next president and I am starting to get antsy. I don't understand the common sense of the American public. Yes, I know there is racism, sexism, elitism, etc. But, when Lehman brothers is about to fail, HP lets 25,000 people go and AIG has to be bailed out by the feds, then all of those isms have to go out the window. This election is about common sense. When Thomas Payne penned the papers with that title hundreds of years ago, he was in a similar conundrum, dealing with Europeans fresh off the boat who somehow wanted an "American dream in a new land," but couldn't let go of the tyranny of the monarchy.
HELLO PEOPLE! THIS IS NOT FUNNY ANYMORE...THAT SENIOR CITIZEN AND HIS PIECE OF ALASKAN EYE CANDY CLEARLY AREN'T QUALIFIED OR READY! YOU CAN'T SUCCESSFULLY RUN THE WHITE HOUSE PLAYING OFF THE SENSATIONALISM OF PLAYING ON PEOPLE'S EMOTIONS. THEY HAVEN'T TALKED ABOUT SQUAT SINCE THEY HOOKED UP AND PEOPLE HAVE THE NERVE TO ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEY SHOULD VOTE FOR THEM!!! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, OUR COUNTRY HAS SUFFERED ENOUGH, PEOPLE MADE THAT MISTAKE FOUR YEARS AGO, EIGHT YEARS AGO AND WE ARE TRULY PAYING THE PRICE!
I hated to get all font serious, but darnit I have to put my foot down and contribute to this blatant American ignorance. The world wants Obama and Biden - literally. They could take a poll of that and the numbers would be nowhere near close. That, in and of itself should be enough. I mean we actually have people shunning the hardworking Harvard Law grad over the West Point dude who graduated at the bottom. Praising the man who got into politics after going hunting with his jump-offs' family connections, while criticizing the other for being a part of effective community organizing. There is something wrong in American culture, when the answer is so clear, yet people still have to find something wrong.
Half-dead and clearly on his way to early onset Alzheimer's, McCain has support when it is quite possible if he won, he could die in the White House and his moose milf would then take his place. This Bush/Cheney puppet in a skirt with lipstick could end up being our leader - the chills won't stop running up my arm!
But the thing that infuriates me the most are these "Dixiecrats" who claim they were Hillary supporters but now support McCain, and feel that Obama made some grave mistake not picking Hillary as his VP (newsflash, her hubby went on the View and said she didn't want to be the VP) and now Palin will make history instead of Hillary. First of all, the Clintons have disappointed me even further because instead of standing by Obama and campaigning for him, they have sat back still licking their wounds and wondering why their "----- entitlement," didn't get them the nomination. Meanwhile, Obama remains close in way too many states that he should be running away with, and he has only gotten lukewarm at best, support from the Clintons. In fact, Billy was on David Letterman with that same soreloserness and Chris Rock gave the funniest synopsis of them that I've heard.
On a lighter note, 30 Rock took Best Comedy, Best Comedic Actress (Fey), and Best Comedic Actor (Baldwin) and I couldn't be happier. I just want to say that 30 Rock is the best show on television, and considering that I practically don't watch television shows anymore (that's because there are none, it's all reality) that says a lot. But I came across the show towards the end of last season, and I love it. Intellectual, satirical comedy at it's best and the laughs keep coming. They have incredible guest stars and the cast is damn near perfect. The new season starts on Halloween, so watch it. Thursday nights on NBC, you won't regret it, and I love that Fey, who is fresh off of impersonation infamy for her dead-on portrayal of Sarah Palin on SNL showed up to the Emmy's in a sexy yet elegant gown minus her signature glasses. Congrats to her for creating, directing and writing a great show and to her and the cast on a much deserved Emmy win.
