Does John McCain think the women of America are lunatics? In what appears to me to be a last ditch effort to save his campaign, good ole John has picked Alaska governor Sarah Palin to be his running mate. He might as well have sent every registered female voter an email stating, "Ok, honey, will you vote for me now??"

It is ridiculous and patronizing to think that the women of America can be persuaded to vote the Republican ticket just because there is a female on the ballot. What do we know about Sarah Palin? (Well, before today, anyway!!) Unless you are from Alaska, probably not much. Other than the fact that she's not quite sure exactly what her duties will be as vice president: “until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day. I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here.”

Is anybody else out there holding their face in their hands, and saying, "Oh, my God...that sounds like something 'you know who'* would say?" I don't know about you, but I can't take any more of that shit. I just can't.
I imagine somewhere tonight in the McCain camp, a few people are shaking their heads in utter amazement, wondering, what the hell was he thinking?? And of course the people hired to "handle" George Bush are salivating at the hope that they may not lose their jobs after all. "Hey guys, quick packing! I think we got another live one here...!!"

Give me a break.....
* I mean George Bush, smooth talking, language changing, dictionary ripping George Bush!!!

I must say I was surprised at Obama's choice of VP running mate. But, I think in the end it will help him at the polls. I guess I will be voting the democratic ticket. Obama just seems so presidential to me, and I think he would bring a certain dignity back to the white house, which is sorely needed. Hell, we might even start capitalizing "white house" again!

However, I am tempted to jump on this guy's bandwagon. You know, a write-in ballot sort of thing. At one point he garnered 2.3% of the polls as America's choice for candidate. He also speaks fluent English.

How can one man be so absurdly funny and so amazingly sexy at the same time? Gosh, I don't know, but he really kick starts my heart.

Greetings fellow bloggers. I am a little reluctant to write about all the things going on in my personal life. Some good, some bad, some just blah... Anyway, I took this little test from blogthings. The questions are provocative, and I thought I would score higher.

Hope all who read this are fat and happy!!

You Are 48% Good

You are a fairly good person. You strive to live a moral life whenever possible.

You are usually kind, generous, and loyal. However, you do have a dark side that even you may not see.

When it comes down to ethical decisions, you tend to take the path of least resistance.

So you may end up lying, cheating, or engaging in other bad behavior... because it's just easier to do so.

You are also probably: Conflicted and confused about the current course of your life

Right now you are on track to being: A slightly crooked politician

To be a better person: Break one bad habit - whether it's telling white lies or spending too much money.

Back Again

I'm back again. I know that many of you will be able to sleep much more soundly tonight reading those words. :) (-Sarcasm) Life has been unreal the last couple of months. Things are steadily improving though.

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying life. My mother-in-law always used that as her intro to every letter I ever received from her, so I, being me, appropriated it for my own use. I like it.

I have a young couple staying with me now, and she is due to deliver a baby in about a month. A newborn infant. It's been awhile since I was around a little baby, but I am looking forward to it. I think. Yeah, I am. My oldest son is doing better than he has in years, which is wonderful. (Knock on Wood---[superstition])

I have dropped a few pounds, and the difference has really improved my blood sugar levels. I am totally amazed. Of course I'm also trying to avoid candy, cakes, pies, fats, breads, and sweet cereals. You know, all the good stuff, the comfort foods. I do miss chocolate, a lot!!

I am looking at our candidates for president very closely. I keep asking myself if I should be overly impressed by how they present themselves in the media. Should I concentrate more on what they have accomplished, rather than how good they sound, or how well they come across as intelligent and articulate? I must say it would be a pleasant change to have an articulate president.

So, who do you think is more articulate? Who do you think seems more presidential? I'm talking about media here, not necessarily who you want to vote for.
