So. Back in high school, I had an english teacher who convinced me that everything happens in threes.
Cuba. Pakistan. Kosovo. How you like them apples?
So I'm watching McCain's victory speech. Aside from Ms. Plastic pipin' in with someting she knew nothing about (it is a sad sad thing when your "smarts" are predicated on what someone else told you was smart...read the whole quote, THEN mouth off. And if you STILL want to mouth off, good on ya--I'd be proud of a country where I was the privileged few too...I like America now that I ain't gotta work the "night shift" anymore too..whoa! Where all that come from??). Sorry. But really. America is prosperous? Or are we really in a recession that we won't know about until after the fact (since, a recession ain't a recession until it's been a recession for two quarters straight...who's to say we're not at any given point in one of them there quarters?). Oh and yeah...McCain just brought up the smoke and mirrors and didn't cite Clinton. Oh wait...or did he say that first and she bit off him?
See. See what happens when I watch too much CNN on election night? I thought that McCain might be a viable option should the stuff get ugly on the Dem side. Scratch. that.
I'm so so SOOOO tired of politics as usual. So tired of it. And the thing that is the catch of it all? We ain't seen nothing yet. Nothing.
Phil. I forgot to mention. I put a stamp on your ballot. Then I almost got pulled over trying to get your ballot to the PO before 6 pm tonight. I love you too (smile).
McCain is proud of his privilege of being an American. That's nice. He's also about change AND experience. And we can (is that "yes we can", or just "we can"?), we must and we will. Okay. You do that. But I do love that you kept it classy and put it right on the forehead that you think Obama is the one this fall. Good on you. Elloquent, empty call for change eh? At least he called it elloquent. How gentlemanly of him. But still "Republicans are patriotic, you liberals are not." And the campaign of fear instead of hope. Right.
Done with the politics tonight. But I so know I shouldn't have had that slice of cake. But I did. Times two. And what?
Kinda how I didn't understand the whole bring your own wine thing, I still don't quite get how CNN is comfy in projecting Obama wins Wisconsin with less than 1% in. But hey, cause no one lies in exit polls. No one. At least I can go to bed early tonight.
Cynical much? Not at all (smile).
Much love...posting the invite dummies on the scrap blog since, well, they're scrappy.
