Debates that Grate ON MY NERVES!!!!
Let's face it, politicians aren't lacking in the self-esteem department. They all are ego maniacs or they wouldn't be running for the position of most powerful person in the world. It must be exhausting touting all of your accomplishments 24/7. My day today was the same as yesterday and it will be the same tomorrow. I bring this up because I don't intend on being so overly struck by "change" that I can give credit for all the good things in my life over to a politician. This is the theme of the 2008 election. Change. Like we all are living in a cess pool of crap in the midst of concentration camps suffering like poor downtrodden serfs waiting for the white horse democrats to save us from the depths of hell. Am I suffering without my knowledge? Does my life suck and I don't know it?? OOPS I forgot, there are those who are suffering and indeed waiting for a government hand-out, they are called democrats. What was I thinking.
So I watched the debate tonight. It couldn't have been more boring. The questions couldn't have been more lame. The officiator couldn't have been more butt-kissing. The answers couldn't have been more stupid. The candidates couldn't have been more scary. Obama was clearly confident in his new found fame and popularity, which gives him an edge because we all know he is a great speaker. I thought I saw someone faint in the front row and he rescued her like only Superman can.....oops that staged little act only happens at rallies. 8 times as matter of fact. Very strange. Obama was extremely Horseshackish in his "let me, let me, respond to that" quibbles. He also was doodling most of the time. I would really like the media to get a copy of some of the pretty pictures he colored. Who knows he may be an arteest! He hasn't brushed up on his foreign policy at all, but he has a new found role as "father" of our country. I felt scolded when he was confronted with plaigerism accusations. He called it "silly time politics" to question his credibility and scolded us all for insinuating that he would do such a thing, even though he did. I felt so naughty. OK dude give me some kool-aid and I will drink it. He misrepresented a Bush policy in stating that companies get tax breaks for having overseas workers. It is quite the opposite. They may get more INCOME because of cheap foreign labor, but the government gives tax breaks to manufacturers who hire and employ Americans in America. Slip of the tongue I am sure. Obama didn't sound so optimistic tonight. Oh I am sorry it was because unless he is in office we will sink into the ocean and he was being PESSIMISTIC about anyone but HIM saving our lives. What was I thinking.
Hill/Bill acted like hospitals were turning away children who had axes coming out of their heads and the doctor asked "do you have insurance little girl, because if you don't I have to let you die!!!" yes this is the scene painted by Hill/Bill and Obama. People dying right and left because hospitals are refusing to care for them. She also took her favorite pot shots at Bush calling him stupid followed by a cackle. She said the President wanted to build a fence through the middle of a college. I mean seriously was he dropped on his head as a child, cackle cackle. Obama doodle doodle. Obama won't look up. Hill/Bill bloviates for what seems like hours about her tough yet soft stand on immigration. I am also tired of the richy rich jokes about republicans and there were plenty of those tonight. Hill/Bill tried to look as congenial as possible nodding her head and smiling. We all know she wanted to punch Obama in the face. The night was really about who could get the most applause after a long stupid drawn-out answer to a softball question. Being as detailed as possible means being long winded, and of course saying NOTHING. I couldn't watch anymore. I got a headache listening to the bullcrap. I am not saying republicans aren't full of it. They are. Just not as much as the democrats. So I am going to bed. It is exhausting being RIGHT all the time. But someone has to do it!!!!
