Smart Liberal and Female


Mitt Romney…

Now, I want to start by saying I do not agree with most of what Mitt Romney has to say.  I was very disappointed to see him change the pro-choice stance that enabled him to be elected as a Republican in the State of Massachusetts.  However, I have never understood why the right cannibalized him.  As the primary went on I even began to feel sorry for the guy.

I also wondered why Republicans weren’t seeing what I was seeing. Here’s a guy that has a pretty good record fiscally and knows how to run a successful business.  According to the Republican Party, he should be their guy.  Instead they keep picking fiscally “unstable” jerks.  George W. Bush never ran a company successfully in fact he pretty much bankrupted much of what he was involved with.  And look what he did to the country.  Then the primary closes with old man McCain who admits he doesn’t understand the economy.  Then he picks Crazy Palin who can’t even complete a sentence.

Why didn’t he pick Romney?  He’s young.  Attractive (yes for all his conservative crap the guy is attractive).  He’s got a nice family.  He’s successful.  He’s been a moderate before…perhaps he can find his way back to the middle. 

Oh yeah…he’s a Mormon.  I truly believe if he’s been a Protestant or a Catholic he’d have been their guy, and we’d have had a completely different race.  Personally, I could care less about the guy’s religion, but that’s just me. 

I’ll be curious to see if the Right sees right and Mitt Romney is their guy in 2012.

Change: Coming to a Theater Near You

So I just got home from canvassing a neighborhood in Springfield, Virginia.  Today was probably the roughest day I’ve had while out knocking door to door.  First off, hardly anyone was home.  Second of all, I was deep in McCain territory, although I am in “fake Virginia” so go figure.  Third of all, there was a McCain rally just up the road and it had just let out!  UGH!!

So I found a few Obama houses, some had already voted!  YAY!  Then I hit a few houses I was supposed to knock on that McCain Palin yard signs.  I knocked gingerly and waited to see what I was going to get.  They were all pretty nice about it, so that’s good. 

I came to a house with no signs and knocked.  A man came out to tell me what a liar Obama was and this and that.  He went on and on.  So I marked him down as a McCain supporter.  Then he got a little pissey.  So as I walked away he got louder.  I finally turned around and said, “Like it or not, change is coming to a theater near you soon!”  Petty and stupid, yes.  But I gotta say, it made me feel better!!

If you haven’t already, get out there!  Make calls.  Knock on doors!

Okay.  I don’t like the lady.  Not one bit.  And man oh man does it upset me she is a woman!  When I think about her being the first woman to represent us in the White House I truly want to vomit.  YUCK!!!

I almost feel bad for the people in Alaska.  I’m sure they were hoping she’d win and get the Hell out of their state!

Kinda.

Guess what?  I really really hate Joe Lieberman.  I think he’s a turd that needs to be flushed, but that story’s for another day!

Lieberman answers question on Palin’s readiness to be President by not answering.  All I can say is thank god the old bastard has one decent bone left in his body.

Just thought I’d give some credit where credit is due!!



Palin Hates Polar Bears and Clean Lakes…

Well it’s no secret I am not a lover of all things Palin.  I can barely stomach the woman to be entirely honest.  Apparently she feels the same way about the environment.  I always joke with my husband that Republicans hate kids, old people, and dogs…apparently just nature!!

Well they aren’t the only ones.  But I’ll let them have some fun.  Doesn’t seem right that Americans would get all the fun now does it?

6 Idiots and a Moderator

Okay so as I’m watching the post debate wrap up, NBC has 6 “Independents” or “undecided voters”.  Are you kidding me?  How on earth at this point have you not made up your mind???

We’ve got 4 Independents, one Democrat, and one Republican. 

Three out of six said they know people who will not vote for Obama because he’s black.  Funnily enough 6 out of 6 said they think Sarah Palin is a hindrance to the McCain campaign.  However 3 of the 6 said they are voting for McCain.  Can I just say that one of those people said they think Obama’s economic plan was better.  One for Obama.  Two are still undecided.  One is leaning Obama because of McCain’s temperment.  She needs more time to “look at the issues”. 

ARE YOU F-ING KIDDING ME???!!!  DO I NEED TO DRAW YOU A PICTURE? 



The Debate – Take One

So I was going to try to refrain from commenting till the debate was over, but man I’m going nuts.  I’m sitting in my hotel screaming at the tv. 

First of all, I hate how John McSame tries to talk to people like he’s the disapproving father figure.  He is very patronizing.  I’m also amazed that John McCain tries to say he’s disputed every negative comment Republicans have made.  That’s ridiculous!  First of all, who has the time?  Second of all I don’t remember him saying Sarah Palin was wrong when she stated Obama palls around with terrorists.

Point one, Obama.  The American people are more interested in issues than our “hurt feelings”.  Round one for Team Obama.  Senator McCain is looking petulant and frustrated.  I wonder if he knows it’s not going well for him??

Why did McCain pick Sarah Palin???  “She’s a role model for women.”  Is that a joke?  She’s a reformer?  I’m not sure if I want to yell, cry, puke, or laugh!

The Palin Factor
October 15, 2008, 9:17 pm

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??
