Friday Night...

Today's novel progress: 758 words.

Joe wants to watch "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader," but I told him not to worry - we I was already planning to watch the presidential debate. (Drum fill.)

As I've said before, I don't like Sarah Palin as a VP candidate - but honestly, I don't understand the utter rancor, (I mean "bitter hatred," not "Rancor," the two-legged guy in Jabba the Hutt's basement who's just doing his thing when Luke comes along and squishes his head in a garage door,) some people have for her. OK, she's the female version of Dan Quayle. So what? Some people are going to vote for her. That doesn't mean they've been "fooled," it just means they agree with what she (and McCain - he's the guy who's running for president) stands for. If you don't - then vote for someone else. That's how an election works.

Six Reasons I dislike Sarah Palin
1. She's too d*mn perky
2. She's arrogantly ignorant (We already elected somebody like that)
3. She represents nothing I value
4. The RNC seemed mesmerized by her and that scares me.
5. She's the Un-feminist (Think Phyllis Schlafly minus 30 years)
6. She expects voters to believe lies about "the bridge," hoping to censor the library, and fairness.

Perhaps Americans don't believe the elections were 'fair' or properly counted, if they were, then yes, you would be right. But the possibility of having a candidate shoved down the collective throats of Americans with the lack of ability or experience she evidences, well then...I think people get a bit upset. Plus there is a good likelihood she may become president and that's a scary thought.

Well, yes, if you automatically assume that the party you oppose is going to steal the election, of course you're not going to like their candidates, no matter who they are. As far as being shoved down people's throats & lack of experience, I'm sure the people who support McCain (who right now are looking like 40% of the country) will feel the same way if Obama is elected. That's just the way elections work. Some people agree with your choice, others don't.

Two party elections and one-sided two party debates are not 'fair' elections representative of the people...sorry disagree with your premise that a two party situation insures fair choice. ;-)

No, I'd have to agree with you 100% on that one. :)
