We did it! Today I am proud to be an American. Bless all of you who voted for hope and a new future. And now, a visual interlude.

A Good Omen

Voting went off without a hitch. I'd be lying if I didn't say I was grinning like an idiot as I walked away from the polling site.

Then I went to the grocery store for a few odds and ends, and got a bottle of champagne just in case (I figure if the worst happens, I can always use it to drown my sorrows...or save it for celebrating Nano). And you know what? I got carded! Yay!

It's got to be a good sign.

I woke up this morning with music from Les Miz going through my head. Oddly appropriate.

I'll vote this afternoon, since we get two hours off to vote and that means I can get out of here before most of the annoying chilluns show up.

Supposedly this meme has been going around for awhile, but it's the first I've seen of it.

True Blue! )

Well, I know quite a few of you had a problem with the whole dead Sarah Palin/zombie thing. I hate her like poison, but yeah...I could see your point. However, I don't think anyone will quibble with me including this accessory with the costume:

Adds just the right touch, don't you think? And the horns will match my shoes. :-P

In other news, it looks like someone stole my asshole Mormon neighbors' "Yes on 8" sign. What a shame...not. :-P

I think I may have made an oblique reference a while back to a shouting match (and yes, it was a shouting match...fueled by Bahooka Honey Bowls) where a dear friend and I got into each other's faces over the current election. He was virulently anti-Obama (called him a socialist) and tried to convince me McCain was the logical choice (obviously he failed big-time!).

Anyway, today I got an email from my friend wherein he apologized for the statements he made, said he'd done some more research, and was changing his vote to Obama. I was completely flabbergasted and heartened at the same time. I'm not saying you have to agree with me politically, but for God's sake do your homework and know WHY you're voting for your candidate. Of course, most people who do their homework end up voting for Obama. ;-)

You Should Be Allowed to Vote

You got 14/15 questions correct.

Generally speaking, you're very well informed.

If you vote this election, you'll know exactly who (and what) you'll be voting for.

You're likely to have strong opinions, and you have the facts to back them up.

Wish it had told me which one I got wrong, though. :-(

Flames! Flames! On the side of my face!


Liar!!!! Liar!!!! You're a liar!!!!

(I love me my movie quotes.)

ETA: I'm sure my friend who had a LIVER TRANSPLANT would be glad to know that you equate a necessary life-saving surgery with boob jobs and liposuction. DIAF, you lying, clueless shitweasel!

I totally love this.

Oh, and just to add to her shimmering roster of support for the underprivileged, apparently Ms. Palin is against the rights of Alaska's native Eskimo population to subsistence hunting and fishing. Why let those pesky Eskimos take away fish and moose that commercial fishermen and big-game hunters have a God-given right to! Capitalism first -- you betcha!

Holy fuck, if I have to watch one more of these hate-mongering "Yes on 8" (striking gay marriage from the CA constitution) ads I am going to start after people with a pitchfork. God, with the economy in the tank and us getting nowhere in Iraq and America's position in the world at an all-time low, can't you narrow-minded bigots come up with something just a wee bit more important to worry about than whether Joe and Bob (or Nancy and Nina) are getting it on in the bedroom and have legalized their relationship with the state of California? REALLY??????????????!!!!!!!!?????????

I am so stabby right now.

...don't fall for another transparent ploy by the Republicans to make them look like the good guys when the truth of the matter is that McCain stole the idea for scaling back campaigning because of the current economic crisis from Obama (Obama's people called McCain's offices at 8:30 this morning to make the suggestion. At 2:30, McCain's camp came out with the announcement about postponing the debates and stopping the campaign).

I've been doing a lot of reading about this election. Frankly, while I'll admit we're in the shitter, I think McCain is trying to postpone the debates because he's going to get his ass handed to him by Obama, especially in the debate this Friday, which would have focused on economic policy.

Gee, Senator McCain, we've had candidates campaign during wartime and other times of crisis. You postponed the RNC because of a hurricane that turned out to be a whole lot of nothing much. Do you really think most rational people are going to see this as anything but a desperate attempt to avoid a debate that's going to make you look like the clueless blowhard you really are?

ETA: Someone on referred to this as McCain's "Wall Street Ate My Homework" moment. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

ETA2: "The debate should take place as scheduled," Speaker Nancy Pelosi said in an interview with NPR to be broadcast this afternoon. "We have to be able to do a couple of things at once. That's what leadership requires." 

Oh, snap!

Now I want to go see Les Miz. Too bad there aren't any productions around here.

Last night I dreamed that I threw a cup of coffee in Bill O'Reilly's face, called him a cocksucker, and flounced out of the room.

So I'm pretty sure you're all fairly familiar with my political leanings by this point. :-P

However, I'm really not the type to get involved. I'll blog, I'll send money to the candidate of my choice when so moved, but mostly I try to stay out of the fray.


Earlier today I saw a disturbing link on Yahoo's main page. It said: "Obama Tries to Steal Electoral Vote From McCain." The article it was actually linked to was really titled "Omaha's Electoral Vote Draws Obama's Attention." I wrote an email to Yahoo complaining about the obvious bias inherent in using the word "steal" in the link to this article. (I think I may have also mentioned that the only person I know of who stole electoral votes was Bush. Ahem.)

I got a standard boiler-plate reply that they get their news from various sources, blah, blah, blah (basically, we're not responsible).

I replied: "I understand that your news comes from various sources, but who decides on the headlines that are listed on Yahoo's front page? This is the actual title of the article from the AP news wire: "Omaha's Electoral Vote Draws Obama's Attention." The title of the link on Yahoo's front page: "Obama Tries to Steal Electoral Vote From McCain."

If Yahoo is responsible for titling those links, then it is Yahoo's bias that should be questioned."

I check out Yahoo a few minutes later. Guess what? The link has suddenly been retitled ""Obama Tries to Take Omaha's Electoral Vote From McCain."

Don't ever let anyone tell you that you don't have the power to change things. Power to the people, baby.

I thought this was all very interesting. This report was written up by someone who's known Sarah Palin for many years. The real name of the author has been left off because of fear of reprisals (everything I've read makes me think I certainly wouldn't want to be on "Ms. Failin"'s shit list).

A lot of what is mentioned here has also been mentioned in other reports by reliable sources, so I have no reason to believe any of this is untrue (most of it is a matter of public record).

Do you want this person to be next in line for the presidency? )

christinex1001: (Default)
Someone on just called McCain a misogynist shitweasel.

Yeah, that about sums it up. But I did laugh.
