Taking 10 Lbs. of Rancor Out of a 5 Lb. Bag

Friday, November 7th, 2008

The campaign nearly as long as a Presidential term is over, concluded with photo op handshakes and obligatory speeches. But buried in those speeches and handshakes are some tells for what the next four years may bring. Most observers offered positive reviews for McCain's concession speech. He seemed gracious, calm, respectful, ...

Why I am Voting for Obama

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I’m not voting for Obama because he has better television or radio advertisements. I’m not voting for Obama because his opponent has to come up with so much negative advertising. I’m certainly not voting for him just because he is a Democrat! I’m not voting for Barack Obama because he ...

Politics, A Park, And A Proposition

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

I've found myself puzzled by my own silence for the last few days...wondering if I'm paralyzed by the anxiety that comes with an important election or if something larger were at play. Then I watched the following video and the answers began to emerge. This isn't a new video. I remember ...

The McCain-Palin Melodrama - Cue The Finale?

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

With more than ten days to the election of a new president, it's probably premature to attempt to decipher the missteps of the McCain campaign. At the same time, given the theatrical nature of the candidates erratic endeavor, it's not unusual for critical reviews to precede the cancellation of a ...

Buh-Bye Lipsticked Pit Bull - Caribou Barbie Gets A 150K Makeover?

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Oh how I love irony! My frenzied friends on the right have done their damnedest to portray the Obama's as snooty elitists...despite the fact that it's the McCain's who own seven homes, thirteen automobiles, and a virtual department store of haute couture for Cindy to show off on the campaign ...

Dear John: The Enemy Of Your Enemy May Not Be Your Friend

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

I've been rather quiet of late...feeling I had little new to offer on the presidential campaign. Frankly, I'm of the opinion that more words aren't always wise words...so I often need time to ponder in the hopes of finding the right words. Having watched the final presidential debate, a couple ...

Obama “Say it to my Face!”

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Barack Obama and Joe Biden have hit the nail on the head with the non stop lies coming from John McCain's campaign. John McCain had the chance to look Barack Obama in the face and state his wild accusations. He didn't because he could not! This makes one fact clear ...

It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad Country We Live In

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

There are times when I'm sure the United States won't survive the remaining days until we elect our next president...let alone the day after. As I watch the McCain campaign succumb to increasingly divisive acts of desperation...fomenting fear and animosity by directing innuendo at ignorance...I can't help but question the ...
