Worst VP Ever?

Dick Cheney…according to CNN’s poll 23% of Americans think he’s the worst VP ever.  I’m not sure he’s the worst VP ever, but he’s definitely not what I’d call great.  I think he’s done his fair share to harm this country and the office he’s held.  He’s been classless and uncouth, unprincipled, and a divider of people. 

I for one will not be sorry to see him go.

Don’t Like the Prez??? Throw Some Shoes!!

So I had dropped by my aunt’s house last night returning something I borrowed.  As we were talking I could see and hear President Bush getting agitated on tv.  So we both looked up and then whamo!  Some guy throws something at him.  I thought it looked like a shoe.  We both just sat there in stunned silence and then laughed.  I said, “How odd.”  She said, “Yeah, I’d like to see that again.” 

Then CNN played it again!  This time we got to see both shoes tossed at the President.  Crazy!  I mean, I’ve wanted to throw something at him many a times, but this guy actually took off both shoes and hurled them at the President!   And then called him a dog! 

Think he’s in Gitmo??

Apparently he is under arrest and being tested for drugs and alcohol.

What’s Next for India and Pakistan?

Where do they go from here?  To say that relations between these two countries has been strained before the terrorist attacks may be an understatement.  Now with the investigation underway and signs pointing to Pakistan, relations very well may end an already fragile truce.  Is there any hope for any semblance of diplomacy and peace between these two nuclear nations?

I’m wondering how we as Americans can convince the Indian government not to retaliate.  Shortly after 9/11 we launched an attack on Afghanistan.  Think about it.  The terrorists had links to Afghanistan, they didn’t necessarily represent Afghanistan…so we declared war.  Now I’m not saying we were wrong to go after Al Queda and Bin Laden, but isn’t this pretty damn close to the same thing?  The terrorists (hopefully) do not represent Pakistan, but have a link.  How do we ask the Indian government not to declare war on Pakistan? 

In addition, we’ve also been flying planes over Pakistan dropping bombs on terrorist camps.  So again, how do we ask the Indians to exercise any form of restraint?  Would that make us the ultimate hypocrite?

I will say I have really enjoyed CNN’s political interactive tools.  This one is a very good time.  Nominate the biggest political blunder from the 2008 trail.  Oh so many to choose from…I’m definitely going to nominate, I just haven’t decided who or what yet!

Interesting and fun (well yes it is fun if you are a big political news reading dork like me) tool from CNN.  Check it out.  Not only do you get to fill remaining positions within the new Obama administration, but when you click on the pictures you get a little biography on each one.

Seriously, how is this not a good time???

I’ve just read on CNN that Barack Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, died after fighting cancer.  More to follow.  May our hearts and prayers be with the Obama family on what is already a strenous evening.
