So I pulled this article up about the transition from President Bush to President Elect Obama.  I started as interested in the process and then became disgusted in the wrap up.  Why are people still reporting on the Clinton people trashing the White House?  It was ridiculous then and it’s even more absurd now.  This is the shit I get so sick of!

The HRC back in the Good Old VA!!

Hillary Clinton is appearing today at George Mason University.  I’m going with some friends.  Pretty excited.  I’ll admit I was a Clinton supporter throught the primary, and have joined Team Obama.  I’m glad to see Senator Clinton out in full force.  Ladies are you listening??

Pictures from the rally to follow later.

The Palin Factor

Okay.  So Sarah Palin has evoked many emotions in Americans.  Especially women.  I can remember getting the text from my husband to see who McCain had picked.  I text back “Just tell me”.  So he sent Palin.  I had thought he was being lazy or mistyped and meant Palenti.  I said big deal.  So he sent it again, with an order to open the news.  So I did.

Holy shit.  Sorry for the language, but that was my reaction.  Now I know there are many people who had no idea who Sarah Palin was, and not that I blame them!  I however am a big Sunday morning tv watcher.  Probably one of the only times I watch tv.  We often sit with coffee and watch the political shows.  We’d watched a documentary about her and they’d hinted she may be a pick.  I can remember laughing. 

Well needless to say when I saw the announcement I was no longer laughing.  I was in shock.  It was a Friday, and I was having lunch with my husband.  He happens to be a Republican.  We try not to talk politics…or he does (I often cross the line and rant and rave).  That was one lunch that was nothing but politics.  We were both in shock. 

I immediately shot off an email to some of my Clinton supporter friends to gage their reaction.  First question I got back was what’s her standing on a woman’s right to choose.  Well we all know Sarah Palin is 100% pro-life.  She also is against sex education.  I could go for the cheap shot here, but I’ll control myself.  Anyway, when I responded, they all replied we’re not interested. 

Now we all know she energized a lagging McCain.  The base seems to really like her.  And why wouldn’t they?  She’s pro-life.  She’s against sex ed.  She doesn’t believe in global warming.  And she is a life long member of the NRA.  Did I mention she wants to drill in ANWR.  So the base is energized.  I’m watching some of my Clinton backers lean McCain.  I still don’t get that, but whatever.  She’s seeing record numbers at her rallies.  The more she talks, the more I see RED!  Wow, that was a pun and I didn’t even mean to, but hey I’ll run with it.

What amazes me is that the Republicans led by John McCain seem to have over-estimated…or maybe under-estimated the minds and voices of women.  Did they really think that just because she’s a woman we’d all fall in line?  Did they think her winking and “cutesy” “folksy” speak would sway us a bit?

I say, no.  She got some shock value.  She raised some interest.  But ladies, if you are with me here, I’M NOT BUYING IT!!  She stands for nothing I stand for.  She is everything I detest about the Republican party.  Her numbers are tanking, she’s getting nastier and nastier, and I’m still not convinced she knows this country has 50 states!

I’d be curious to see if the polls would be so bleak had he picked a real candidate?!  Or have the American people just had enough?  We have two wars that have no end in sight.  The economy is in the crapper.  The Republican “moral majority” has been racked with scandals.  Does Palin even matter??



Where the Hell is Clinton?

Okay, everyone who knows me knows I am a huge fan of the Clintons!  I mean the guy did bring us the Family Medical Leave Act!!  Again, I digress.  But where is Hillary?!?  I supported Hillary initially in the primary, wrote her a check, and cried while listening to her concession speach! 

BUT WHERE THE HELL IS SHE???

I don’t know about all of you, but I’ve found a fair share of Clinton supporters that are claiming they are not voting or voting for McSame…oopsi…meant McCain…not really I meant McSame!  Or they are saying they are not going to vote.  Shame on you Clinton supporters.  If you really were a Clinton fan you’d know how ridiculous it is to vote for McSame or not vote at all! 

Hillary needs to get out there and make sure real issues are tackled as this election moves forward.  We need her to put her boxing gloves on and show my good friend (puke) “Sarah” what smart, tough, well informed/read women in politics look like.  Come on Hill, do it for your country!! Besides do you really want Sarah to be the first woman VP?!?



The Latest Round of CRAP

I’ll be the first to admit that I do not really enjoy negative campaigning and mudslinging…but can I say that I am so glad to see Senator Obama has his big boy pants on now!

I’ve always felt that campaigns should be about issues, policy, and execution.  I hate when it becomes about the candidate so to speak.  Take for instance Bill Clinton and his affairs.  Do I care?  No.  Giuliani being on this third wife??  No again!  Or Mitt Romney and being a Mormon.  Again, do I care?  NO!  

These are my issues, and again I repeat MY issuesHealth care.  A woman’s right to choose.  Military – and not just missiles and guns-more like GI Bills, Veteran’s Health Care, and military families being able to live on their pay.  The Economy (stupid)!  Education.  Global warming (and I’ll admit I don’t know a lot, but there are some pretty smart people out there saying we are doing some real harm so what the Hell I’m on board).   

So when Sarah Palin, and hey you don’t mind if I call you Sarah do ya, starts throwing mud and misleading American people I found myself a little riled up.  Sarah decides, hey we are losing, and makes the blanket statement “Obama palls around with terrorists”.  So what does the average viewer/reader think…Oh my God, Senator Obama hangs out with Osama and gang?  Hezbolla?  Hamas?  The ETA?  Who??  Well I’m sure if you are reading this you are thinking to yourself, who who!?!

From what I’ve gathered “Sarah” was referring to a man named William Ayers…which would be one terrorist.  Or perhaps she meant William Ayers and his wife Bernadine Dohrn – which I guess would be plural-any whoo….  Who were in fact domestic terrorists belonging to a group called the Weathermen.  Now would Bernadine be a weatherman, weatherwoman, weatherperson…haha…see this can be fun.  Needless to say they participated in the very nasty business of bombing places.  Which I would like to clearly type out I do not support nor defend in any manner. 

Okay so Ayers and company went into hiding.  In 1980 he turned himself in.  He is now a professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  Apparently Senator Obama and Ayers have served on a few committees together.  Gasp-not really-but whatever.  They also live in the same neighborhood – holy crap – again not really.  And supposedly Ayers held a fund raiser in the 90’s for Obama – double crap and gasp.

So now Obama palls around with terrorists!  Of course he does.  As do all the professors, administrators and students at the University of Illinois at Chicago.  I’m not sure if you go to church with these people but according to Sarah you may be palling around with terrorists!  God forbid you bump into them in the grocers.  By the way, is this when we ask the late Reverend Falwell how Hell is??  Or perhaps ask his son to channel some energy and pray for…well a good portion of Chicago?  I mean seriously you may find yourself on the PTA with me some day and have to explain how we became friends…

So this brings me to the Obama campaign, who is fighting back!  Hip hip hooray…   You might say now wait a minute.  I thought you didn’t like nasty personal politics.  And you would be right.  I don’t.  You know what I like less than that though?  When the Democrats stick their head in the sand and pretend everything is going to be okay.  Did it work for Al Gore?  Uh, no.  Did it work for John Kerry?  Uh, no.  And don’t get me started on that bit of nastiness.  Honestly how does a veteran who serves his country get questioned by a man who doesn’t show up for guard duty about loyalty and patriotism?  UGH!! 

Sorry back to Obama.  So he’s come out with a video illustrating John McCain’s role in the Keating Five.  Pretty much deregulation, S & L scandal, and poof lots of money lost.  Make you think of anything we’ve seen recently… say a $700 billion dollar tax payer bill for Wall Street?!?  And can I just say John McCain has been supporting deregulation much like this for 20 years in the Senate??  So Senator McCain how’s deregulation working for us now? 

So here we are.  The GOP ticket starts to realize Americans aren’t buying it any more.  They are LOSING – hehe (my own little gleeful laugh).  Then Sarah throws the first dirty punch.  Senator McCain starts in as well.  And Senator Obama put his big boy pants on and fought back.  This is where sirens go off and wild cheers.  Do I like that we had to go there?  No.  Am I happy he fought back, YES!! 

So Sarah, I hope you can take what you seem to like to give.  Except wait, Senator Obama is kicking your ass with the truth not misleading fear mongering hate filled statements!
