Hello, all.....

Thank you, loyal readers, for clicking in and checking on me. I guess that should say "thank you Mom and those other three of you, whoever you may be!"

I've been away for awhile because frankly, my brain is full right now. This is the first time I've taken any actual interest in politics (I know, damn two percenter!), and I am absolutely fascinated by the behavior in both camps right now.

Politics really has been top of mind for me lately. It's like a nasty car wreck. I know I shouldn't look. But I JUST. CAN'T. LOOK. AWAY!!

I've read the fact check websites. And CNN. And MSN. And the radical liberal democrats' sites. And the whackjob republican nutcase sites. I'm amused at the number of people who don't live in the States who are commenting on our politics. And I have to give a shout out to some of you. By gosh, you take this stuff seriously!!!

And yet, I don't necessarily think that's the sort of thing you want to read about here. And it's certainly not what I want to write about. Although, I did, two posts ago: My Give-A-Damn's Busted . Just couldn't help myself.

The whole situation right now is just incendiary. Friends are disagreeing. There is ugly talk in the lunchroom at work. It's conservatives vs. liberals right now, when it used to be just a group of friends. Moms are disagreeing with daughters, and brothers with sisters. I hate that. Why can't we all just get along (whine!!)....

I feel the way I feel, and I respect your right to feel the way you feel. I don't want to try to change your mind over to my side, and I sure as hell don't want you trying to change mine. So, let's just agree to disagree. It will all be over in about 7 weeks, and we can go back to the status quo.

In the meantime, I will try to come up with something funny or interesting that somehow doesn't revolve around the GOP. I'll just leave you with this.

That feeble 72 year old white guy who doesn't know how many houses he owns? Well apparently, he created the BlackBerry. Really, you say? Absolutely. Read it here on CNN: McCain Advisor: BlackBerry, a miracle he helped create

Go figure. Seems only fair, though, since Al Gore invented the internet. That's reaching across the aisle, folks!

I agree. There's a whole lot of stupid out there on boths sides of the fence. So yet again we're left trying to decide between the lesser of two evils.

Perhaps ultimately the question is:

Bush III or Carter II ?

Yep that pretty much sums it up,
