We are so lucky that McCain didn't win the election. Fox News, no less, is exposing how uninformed (I'm using this word to be diplomatic, because I really want to say dumb) she really is:

I came home early and voted. It was a smart move. When we got to the polling place, there was a handful of people there. We got on line and voted. Took few minutes. The most that I spent was helping my mom vote. She doesn't speak much English, is hard of hearing, and is 92 years old. I always get to be her helper.

Condolences to Barack Obama on the passing of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, in Hawaii.

It's sad that she cannot witness his success in winning the presidential race tomorrow. (I am an optimist.)

Earlier today, I read [livejournal.com profile] txvoodoo 's most recent entry in her journal in which she said this:


A moment of zen  

I was listening to NPR on my drive home—-they were interviewing some black people about election, economy and all.

One man said he got a text msg encouraging him to vote, and it said "Rosa (Parks) sat so Martin Luther King could walk. MLK walked so Obama could run. Obama is running so our children can fly."

I got all weepy.

SEVEN DAYS.



A few minutes later, I went to Salon.com to read Garrison Keillor's weekly entry. Both [livejournal.com profile] txvoodoo  and Garrison Keillor touched upon what electing Mr. Barak Obama is all about. It is to allow the descendents of American slaves to accomplish what every human being should have a right to accomplish and to finally erase the necessity to add the adjective that describes our looks. A person should be judged for what he or she accomplishes, not what she looks like.

The thought of replacing the Current Occupant with the Angry Old Man of the Desert and Whoopee the Ice Queen is miserable in the extreme. )

After seeing in [info]divka 's journal and at [livejournal.com profile] ulibka_fortuni 's urging, here's a very funny video:

Now, I admit that Keith Olberman is a bit harsh (although not as nasty as Rush Limbaugh), but the truth is that she should know the Constitution. She should know the job description of the position she is hoping to get. When I am applying for a new job, I learn about the job description and make sure that I am qualified to do it. I don't think she did either for the VP position. This is scary, as she is one heart beat away form the presidency.

At  final segment of the first video and at he beginning of the second video is the most amazing.  Mr. Powell addresses what should have been addressed by everyone, especially by Mr. McCain when he was approached by a woman who said that she didn't trust Obama because he was an Arab or a Muslim. The answer should be, "He isn't an Arab, nor a Muslim. But if he were a Muslim, what does it matter? American-born Muslims should have as much right to become presidents as White-Anglo-Saxon Americans do." Mr. Powell, I love you.

Keillor, in my opinion, once again hits the nail on the head. Our economy is in the bad shape it is in because we have not paid attention to regulation. We deregulated, we let the financial institutions go wild. They played with the public's money and now want to be forgiven and be given their more than "average" bonus. Where's justice here? Open up your eyes, the people who are hurting because they are now foreclosing should be forgiven as well.

I have to chuckle, and, at the same time, I have to stop myself from getting enraged. Why? Because a few months ago, Al Gore made a silly convesational faux pas. He meant to say that he was part of the process of starting off the Internet and, unfortunately, for him, it came out as if he had said that he invented the Internet.

Now, Republican politicians went to town with that remark. Al Gore was ridiculed. Now, McCain is in a similar situation and nobody makes waves. Honestly.

Here's a pretty amazing claim from a McCain staffer: John McCain invented the BlackBerry. Yes, that's right, the senator who doesn't know how to use email invented the BlackBerry, a device known for letting you check your email on the go. Move over, Al Gore, there's a new "inventor" in town!

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a top McCain policy adviser, waved his BlackBerry around and talked about McCain's work as a senator, telling reporters Tuesday, "You're looking at the miracle that John McCain helped create."

His argument was, like Gore's, that by working on bills that dealt with the telecommunications industry, McCain helped facilitate conditions that allowed the BlackBerry to exist. I'm pretty sure that's not the definition of an inventor.

When asked for comment, Obama's campaign spokesman Bill Burton said: "If John McCain hadn't said that 'the fundamentals of our economy are strong' on the day of one of our nation's worst financial crises, the claim that he invented the BlackBerry would have been the most preposterous thing said all week." Oh snap, Bill Burton! [Comcast; Thanks, Matt!]

I saw this on [livejournal.com profile] miss_sophia 's journal.


This is hilarious. One of my favorite songs from Les Miserables is featured. See if you recognize  "certain" candidates.

McCain pulled a good one: He used the vagina card. I hope that people can see through that.

I am sick and tired of Hilary Clinton whining that she would have won had Edwards not entered the presidential race. But alas, he entered another woman!

Sadam Hussein is dead. He was executed today. I have mixed feelings about this news. The man was evil, no question about it. I have two simple questions: Is Iraq better off without this man? Are we safer from terrorists? 

I think not for both questions. Iraq is in turmoil, and life there is now more precarious than before. As far as we are concerned, I think that we opened up the floodgates to terrorists. Why did we have to invade Iraq? Why aren't we after Osama bin Laden? Why did we not concentrate on Afghanistan?

OK, enough political rambling.
