through and through. Very left wing. Live and let live, I say. Keep the government out of my bedroom and out of my life. Marry who you want to marry and that person will have the same rights as any other married couple.
I will be voting for Obama come the fall. I like his choice of Joe Biden as second in command. I feel comfortable that if and when Barack should take a bullet to his forehead (God forbid…but the potential is there for all Presidents) then Joe Biden can and will continue to run this country under the same values that I embrace.
There. I said it.
Now, what troubles me is this young chick from Alaska that McCain has taken on as his running mate. Girlfriend is 44 years old! She hasn’t even hit menopause yet! And she’s in charge of Alaska. Dudes, seriously, how much shit goes down in Alaska that will qualify you to be the next Chief in Command? She has been a senator for 20months, People. 20 months. I have underwear older than that!
It isn’t a woman thing, I assure you. I was all set to get behind Hillary Clinton because I feel she could have made a difference in education and health care. I am pretty sure she would end the war in Iraq too. Plus she had the super studly Bill Clinton as a personal advisor. Who better to be President than the wife of a former President?
Of course, this theory of family relation does not apply to the Bush family. There have been three Bushes in political office, none of which should ever have been there. I hold great disdain for the Bush administration. Sadly, Jeb Bush is (was)the governor of the state that I live in…this armpit known as Florida.
But I digress.
Do we even know anything about Sarah Palin other than the fact that she looks like a sexy librarian? Hell, let Tina Fey run for Vice President if that is what makes a candidate worthy! Ms. Palin is already being plagued by rumors and scandal. This makes me believe the McCain didn’t take a long hard look at Ms. Palin before nominating her as his running mate. Sure, she balances Obama in a lot of ways. She’s young. She’s fresh. Historically, she would change the white man only ways of this United States. Got it. I understand.
But, it makes me wonder how much time, effort and thought went into choosing her as a running mate. Was McCain on the bowl fantasizing with his latest Maxim magazine? Was he hoping to see how she performs…literally? Who the fuck IS she?
I am comfortable with my choice for President. I like Barack Obama despite his youth. I feel comfy with Senator Joe Biden as second in command. He is well-liked, well respected and has been around the block a time or two.
So tell me, dear readers, what is your opinion on the Republican choice for Vee Pee?
