Oh For God's Sakes!
I'm changing this blog but want to say that The Family Louvrak wedding photos are on the previous post, if you are so interested. (Thank you louie for posting on them.)
Oh For God's Sake refers of course to Romney's secretly video-taped $50,000 a plate dinner fundraiser last May where he did what i think is far far far far far worse than the "Dean Scream" from 2004. (For those who don't know, I was a Howard Dean state delegate for our state. i loved him!)
If you haven't seen it, let me know and i will link it. Oh, hell with it, i will link it anyway.( I like having it for historical purposes, because i think it's a doozy.)
By the way, did y'all know it was $50,000 a plate for that fundraiser when you first saw that video? I did not. I got this news first online from my boss at work where the article linked said that it was from May 2012 and MotherJones put it out. But it was from Jon Stewart who filled in some of the good stuff.
I love presidential politics normally. But this year i did not have the stomach for the pundit crap even MSNBC and CNN... and all the polarizing and defensive back and forth hypocrisy on the other side so i have purposely not been watching anything but The Daily Show. And Jon Stewart makes it fun. I don't have the energy anymore to debate or defend my liberal Democrat side, because i feel like it is a big waste of time. We are all trapped and wrapped in our ideologies.
That said, I am still working on the election, only it's our local Washington State elections. I won't bore you with the details because you don't all live and work here. But for the next three weeks this political work cuts into many of my evenings.
And if i find when talking to any minorities, gay people, women who don't want to get pregnant every time they have sex, young people, (especially if they are under the age of 26), ANYONE who might be deemed 'entitled to health care or food' and they tell me that they didn't vote, well, i don't know...I guess i better get a lawyer on retainer right now....
(By the way did y'all see Romney try and fix this? I think that is just as bad as this little speech. )
I feel better every day that Obama is going to be just fine. I hope it's not just because i live in Washington State and get a different bent on the political climate. I don't believe it will even be close.
