Because… 30 August 2008Posted by marisacat in 2008 Election, DC Politics, Democrats, Inconvenient Voice of the Voter, The Battle for New Orleans.
the electorate is good and wise (you had not noticed???) – I am trusting them to work it out between the Black Guy with the Old Guy, and the Old Guy with the Chirpy Cheery. I have done nothing but laugh, chuckle and yes, snicker, since Palin entered. What a hoot.
Stuff is sliding around, stuff is up in the air… and that is not a bad thing.
After so many years of foolishly worrying about the Democrats (and they never worred about me), could they make it. Could they win. If they won, could they hold on. Would/could that Democrat over there not cave (wow that was useless endeavor!, LOL). Would this Democrat not be such a fucking Republican (wow that was dumb of me!)… and so on!
Once I realised they can’t help their nature (is it nature or is it nurture, with the Democrats it is BOTH!, LOL) what a relief… like great shards of someone else’s bleeding flesh falling from my shoulders.
So, go at it candidates. Bleed for all I care.. in fact please do, in prime time and under klieg lights. No tourniquets for you creeps!
The ONLY thing I will say for the Clintons is that they fought back in ’92, they did. I loved it, the day that Hillary dropped a comment to a camera crew, as she was walking, that GHW had “his own Jennifer” and then cheerily let the media take over. They HAD to tell the story… now it was out there. Bill and Hill could street fight, and she was happy to deliver the blow…
I am going to catch Miss Cindy in all her SW x Southern white glory on This Week.. it strikes me a wrinkle in the flow of events. Maybe sending a signal under the easy to see noise…
And I will catch the first ever! with them both! interview on 60 Minutes with O’Biden… see if they can complete each other’s sentences, and chew gum.
