Okay so you obviously know who I’m going to vote for in the next 40 days. Got it. I read stuff, I make my own decisions, I use common sense. I met a woman, older, who says that in her day, everyone supported the President and nobody said a word against him because it looked bad to the rest of the world. So, for that reason, she simply said she was a Republican (duh!) and had the habit of not mixing politics and alcohol (could be boring, could be a riproaring good time, depending on the company - that’s what I said).
I must say this though. There are some wacky wack jobs out there who are about to vote. I really can’t make this unbiased because the only wacky wack jobs I think that are voting for Obama are the ones who just vote for him because he’s black. But then that opens the door to the ones who say they aren’t voting for him because he’s black PLUS use slurs to accommpany said argument (and you thought racism was dead, you head in the sanders). This is straight from a Yahoo News correspondent on your beloved right wing Fox News. Did Fox news reporter interviewing Yahoo Man ask about the race issues? No! She just went ahead and asked him to breakdown, in a right wing favorable fashion, how Obama’s lead wasn’t really a lead but a slow down. Okay, great. The french fries I had last night were not bad for me. They were potatos from the earth.
Back to my point. On NPR (Thanks to the man at home, I have to get my news everywhere, including crazy Fox News and their bleached Country Club mentality) yesterday, there were a bunch of Latino Veterans in Colorado, expressing their undying love for McCain because he was a veteran. They even started slamming Michelle Obama because she was on some board of a parent company that closed down some random pickle factory. Okay. Hold please. My dad was a veteran. It is obvious in this blog how much I adore my father. My brother is still in the military. My beau was in the reserves. None of those upstanding men would make a great president just because they served. There is no special Genius test they give you to enter either the military, college, Wall Street or any other club that people seem to glorify. Those places are full of regular joes, admirable people and losers too. Said Latino Vets had not one thing intelligent to say about McCain’s immigration policy (which wouldn’t be so good for them, PS) or Palin’s inability to answer a straight question let alone her other issues or his other issues with the 15k a month from Freddie Mac campaign manager.
Okay I can’t focus the obvious and already reported stuff. This is about those people who make excuses and rationalize obvious crazy behavior. The human mind is basically what we are voting on. It isn’t issues or economy or anything of the sort. We are sometimes as dumbed down as we seem.
Contraty to belief, I am not a McCain hater. How I feel about McCain is how I would if there was a Columbine survivor who was running for President and didn’t know the issues. I would just say, “Come clean, dude. You really don’t know much about this stuff, huh?” And I would hope they would sheepishly shake their head, eyes full of ernest good intentions, and then they would just withdraw.
That’s my dream anyway.
But you guys can go on and rationalize how you’re trying to make the world in your head the one that’s around you. It will just frustrate you in the long run.
Yes we can.
