Coming Over To The Dark Side


I had told myself that I was going to avoid watching the conventions, knowing perfectly well that if and when I finally gave in to politics I would find myself obsessing all the way through Election Day.

Well, I did fine last week and on Monday. Last night, however, I caved. And now of course I'm going to watch the speeches tonight and tomorrow. And read up on all the coverage and spin. And try to prognosticate about What It All Means.

In the words of Anniken Skywalker, "Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!"

Oh, as for last evening's speakers? If the GOP wins the White House this fall, I sure hope Ol' Fred gets a high-visibility position. How about Press Secretary? "President don't take a dump without a plan, son."

Then there's Joe Lieberman. I really like the guy, but every time I see him speak, I half expect him to say, "Uh, now, Alf....Why did you put the lawnmower in the pool?"

Fred was great, wasn't he?

I didn't get to see Lieberman's entire speech; I fell asleep!

Can't wait to see the speeches tonight!

I've been avoiding them, but will turn in for Gov. Palin's speech. The media mugging of her is utterly disgusting.

Joe Lieberman was in my brother's lamaze class. Can't you just see him doing the blowing out the candle breathing?

It appears she's scheduled to speak at 9:30 pm tonight. Hope that's east coast time and not central.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finally caved and also not the only one who is becoming slightly obsessive about it all.

I watched the speech on the RNC's live stream. Let's just say that McCain chose.......wisely. This woman appears to be Officer Ripley, Annie Oakley, Margaret Thatcher, and Melissa Therieau all rolled into one big ball of HAWT!

If I were Joe Biden, I'd come up with some family emergency on debate night so I could avoid getting gutted like a bull moose on national TV.

Day-um did she come out swinging. It's gong to be a good old fashioned knife fight.
