I had a conversation today with a friend who is having a love affair with Sarah Palin. It's not hard to understand as they both are small town, pagent queens who are passionate about... stuff. It may not be the same stuff I'm passionate about, but passion is to be admired just the same. Even though the conversation took place over the phone, I think she could hear me roll my eyes. The following piece, credit to Patria, is good. Made me smile and nod my head good. Read and either laugh or fume. Kari, fume softly as to not give Ty another reason to think you're more in love with this woman than you are with him.
I like John McCain. I really do. He's a likeable guy with a compelling story. The trouble is that on the two major issues at hand, the economy and this lovely war, he's on the same page as GW. That means more of the last eight years and my friends, I don't want more of the same. Clinton had the lowest number on welfare rolls in a very long time and all that work has been completely erased... back to square one. Unemployment is way too high (my technical term). Obama isn't perfect, but I think he sees this economic struggle for what it is rather than denying that there is an issue. How can you have the market fluctuate like it has this week and say that everything is fine? McCain said that. Really. You can be enlighted here. There's more to discuss on this topic, but that's all for now.
