Random Presidential Boxing

So, what did everyone think of the Debate last night? (If you actually watched it). I was pleased that Kerry came off as a confident, non wishy-washy person. At least that's one thing less that Bush can pin on him.

The next Presidential debate is on FRIDAY, October 8. We'll see if he can maintain his momentum. Let the drinking games begin!

The Vice Presidential debate is on Tuesday, the 5th. I want so badly to see Cheney...in the open! I'm still debating whether or not he's alive. I'm excited to see Edwards debate as well.

Anyway, I watched (kind of) the debate with userillusion. In the spirit of debating, we had dinner from this place called John Edwards. The food was pretty tasty. Does that mean that the proprietors of the restaurant think that Edwards is tasty? Eww, that's just disgusting!

I have to get new allergy medicine. Apparently, mine does not help with the cat allergy so much. (BOOOOO!)

I am in a really good mood today. Could it be because it's Friday or because I have something to do Friday night? Maybe, or maybe it's some secret I'm keeping. I haven't decided. ;)

Woohoo! Time to break out the Kool-Aid! LOL!

Let the Presidential Boxing Continue

I often forget that because of my profession people don't often openly discuss religion or politics because we can't very well afford to get too excited about convictions while carrying weapons...oh but anyway, in reality, I'm just surrounded by conservatives and it gets annoying. The day after the debate (of course I watched, missed 20 minutes because didn't leave work till after 7), I was talking to someone I work with and I was shocked to hear them say that they had voted for Bush the first time but when the war started and her husband went off to Iraq for a year she absolutely hated Bush, didn't understand why we were over in that country, why we'd gone over there so quickly without thinking things through and exploring other options or at least attempting to get more support so we wouldn't be going it practically alone, then the day after the debate (exactly 2 months after her husband returned home) she is like, I really hate discussing politics, but i'm worried that Kerry is too much of an idealist, that he has all these ideas about changing things that basically work, and hell, Bush can't help the fact that the war happened during his presidency, people should give him another term finish this since he is already well on the way to continuing to make America a safer place. I wanted to scream. Without calling her a crock of sh*t because that wouldn't have been tactful at all, I started rattling off how many ways she had just contradicted her past convictions, and explained how idealism and change might be good, and reminded her of a few choice mistakes in the past administration. Instead of commenting, getting into a debate or argument, she simply said, and that is why I avoid discussing politics. Oh well.

But anyway, yes, I loved the fact that Kerry did maintain his confidence and explain himself. I was both annoyed and a little amused that President Bush kind of sounded like a puppet when he kept repeating Kerry's quote, "wrong war, wrong time..." It was like that was the foundation that President Bush was building his credentials on. Hopefully people will see that and it will detract from his following. It also scared me that when Kerry said that his main goal was the to cease the proliferation of Nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass distruction, and spead up disarming and destroying such weapons, Bush's response was that he thought it was wrong for Terrorist to have Nuclear Weapons and WMD, and stuck with that. So does that mean its okay for us and people who ally with us to have them? I've studied what NBC (nuclear, biological, chemical) warfare looks like, and I certainly hope that we never take that route....again.

P.S. Go tasty food, Go good moods, Go Friday night plans, Go good secrets, and most of all....Go Kool-Aid!
