I was busy wrangling my demons into shape for tonight's annual outing and missed the Democrats' debate last night. This morning my in-box is full of various candidates' clips of their best moments. And I must say that John Edwards' moment is impressive.
Anyone have any thoughts on this? Anyone watch it?
Will anyone be awake for the election at the rate we're going? Or is it an indication of how much we want to put the Bush years behind us that the campaign started mid-way through his second reign and all the primaries keep being moved up?
Well, 446 more nightmare-scary days, no matter which state leapfrongs to be the first to vote. Let's just hope there aren't more.
(But there's MORE below so read on.)
The comment line is open for anyone's thoughts on who impressed you, or didn't, last night. The only thing I'm not interested in hearing is how the whole lot of them is just as bad as the Repugs, cause A.) they're not and B.) I don't know about you but I'm planning on voting for one of them. I mean, Rudy Giulliani? Ralph Nader to the "rescue"? No thanks. And yeah, I know that the whole system is obscene and that until we have true campaign finance reform, ie., break the fornication going on between bidness and politics, we're just running in a big gerbil wheel. But despite bouts of despair, I'm fool enough to still think if we elect the right people, we'll get that reform. (Smack smack, wake up girl!)
But frankly, I'd vote for Chumpy the Chimp if he were able to speak in complete sentences and I knew he could beat the bedroom peepin' science hatin' goons on the other side. (I had to add that bit about speaking in sentences to distinguish him from the current occupant.) And people love chimips. Think what it would do for our world image.
Well, tell us your thoughts. Barb and I are in a slump.
