Smiley With Flower

Oil, gas and Chinese ceiling fans

I once again watched the debate with most of the usual suspects (warmerthanfire, userillusion, Liz) and I have to say that I'm glad the debates are over! I am so tired of listening to lying politicians and their non-answers.

I am mystified by people who say, "I'm not going to vote for xxx because he is a liar." NEWSFLASH TO THE CLUELESS: They are all liars!

With that, here are some of the ridiculous reasons I heard about why people aren't voting for Kerry:

1) He's a liar (see above)
2) He flip-flops (EVERY politician flip-flops. After all, politicians aren't
supposed to vote their conscience, but the will of their constituency, and
WE change our minds once every five minutes.)
3) His personality is dull (SO! What the heck does THAT have to do with

Don't take this and an attack on Bush supporters, because I am certain that some Kerry supporters have ridiculous reasons to vote for Kerry as well.

I guess it boils down to the fact that I am tired of all whiny-uninformed voters. So tired of them that I grow anxious to just get the election over with.

Anyway, the debate was ok. It bothers me more than a little bit that Bush got stronger with each subsequent debate. It also bothers me that neither candidate ever addressed the issue of how they are going to pay for their platforms (and Bush was specifically asked about Social Security). But, its politics, so what do you expect?

After the debate, userillusion, Liz and I played poker. I was losing (badly), but with an "all in" bet before any cards were dealt, I made quite a comeback before we quit. Poor Liz went all in and lost, but later redeemed herself while playing userillusion's hand. Fun times.

In other news, I really need a day off.
