I don't usually talk about politics on my blog, 'cause I save that for the grocery store or the school parking lot. Makes shopping more interesting when you are being chased around the store by a little old man on a scooter who remembers when FDR was in office and thinks that the only criteria for electability shoud be lower prescription drug prices. I feel his pain, but I have to tell you folks...there is more at stake this year than lower drug prices...
- who's gonna help Jennifer Aniston find someone to settle down with (did anyone really think the John Mayer thing would go anywhere? He's kinda weird!)
- putting a moratorium on Brad and Angelina's child bearing (Brangelina is a real threat here, folks...when are you all gonna wake up?! We need someone who is willing to take them on and put a stop to their evil plan to populate the world with overly beautiful people.)
- finding out who is responsible for bringing back 90210 and publicly flogging them
Serious issues here, Bloggies!!!Sarah seems nice enough on the surface. She obviously had enough going for her to get elected Governor of Alaska. She has 5 kids, one with Down's Syndrome...running Alaska and raising kids can't be easy. Living in Alaska at all, with or without kids, doesn't seem easy to me. She sounds like a normal mom who just happened to get involved in politics one day. She's been married 20 years to a dude who has lived in Alaska forever. He's very manly. She hunts and fishes (which could make her manly?). Her oldest kid is in the military. She sounds like someone who may be a little more in touch with the common man. Or maybe just the common Alaskan. Apparently she is a major butt-kicker and has wreaked havoc among the rank and file as Governor. Still, she has very little high level political experience and I have to think that there are a lot of people who will be worried about her stepping in if McCain kicks it during his presidency. Maybe a lack of political experience is to her benefit...we keep griping about career politicians being out of touch. I don't know what to think...I'm still reeling. I just know I SO DO NOT GET his logic with this pick.
Does she have a blog? That might give me a better feel for who she is. If I could read about how she handles a teenager with a crappy attitude or a spouse who is never home or how she balances work and home issues (does she sometimes feed her kids chicken nuggets and mac and cheese because it's late and that's all there is?) I might be able to make a better decision. If she follows Sue at Happy Meals and Happy Hour and knows who BG is, then I am SURE I could get behind her.
Can't think today, people...this really messed me up. I have to go ponder the potential new leaders of the greatest country in the free world...this is not a responsibility I take lightly. I need to consult with Bathtub Gansta. I'm sure he'll help me put things in perspective. He may not look it, but he's hip to the whole political scene. I can hear him now...BG says: "Bein' a playah don't make you a politician hatah, yo! Not voting is whack ya'll, for realz!"
