Do Republicans Want John McCain to die?

Are Republicans really hoping McCain will die after if he is elected?Is He Saying What I Think He is Saying?

8/31/08

Ok – so my hubby and I have been wondering why everyone keeps saying Palin is a historic pick for veep.  After all, the Dems chose a woman for the veep spot 24 years ago.  The only way that this nomination is historic is because the Republicans have now done something no one thought they would do until hell freezes over.  It is nice to know the Republicans have finally joined the 20th century.  It is unfortunate for them that the rest of us are now living in the 21st century.  Don’t worry. They will get here eventually.

And Now for A Completely Different Palin

Sarah Palin for Vice President/PresidentAnd Now for Something Completely Different

Wow.  What a shocker.  McCain picked a complete unknown to be his veep pick.  Interesting.  Her name is Sarah Palin and she is a mother of 5 from Alaska.  Republicans are thrilled even though none of them know her – not even McCain who has only met her twice.

Tristram Shandy: A Cock and Bull Story is to Tristram Shandy what Adaptation is to The Orchid Thief.   It is quite funny but probably only if you are an intellectual or an artist of some sort.  If you have read Tristram Shandy, this movie has lots of jokes in it only you will get.

Obama Biden 08!

Obama and Biden in 2008Obama Biden 08!

Yay – I am so excited.  Obviously, if you have been reading my political posts, you know I am a big Biden fan.  I have been hoping that Obama would choose Biden.  When he gave his criteria for what he was looking for in a veep, it sounded exactly like Biden.  So, now we have 2 quality individuals with strong moral values that they actually strive to live up to, running for our highest office.  Yay!  If you haven’t donated to their campaign yet, please do so.  They aren’t taking lobbying or PAC money so it is important that we the people fund this campaign.

Conflict in Ossetia made simple

South Ossetia wants independance

8/11/08

Ok – I was a bit confused by this. I thought that Ossetia was a rather lawless border state.  Suddenly, Russia and Georgia are in armed conflict over it.  What the heck is going on?  Both Obama and McCain have taken very different approaches to this conflict and without knowing more about the source of the conflict, it is impossible to know which approach is better. So, I did a little research.

UK UFO Hacker Drama

Is looking for UFO's the same thing as terrorism?What the Heck!

The problem with US newscasts is that they rarely provide any news.  Even Keith Olbermann, who I love, doesn’t provide a lot of real news, though I appreciate how he goes in depth into specific subjects.  To get real news about the world, and the US, you need to go abroad.  The BBC still does a good job, so I have taken to watching their nightly broadcast on BBC America.
