Wish List

I wish that James Carville would sneak into Barak Obama's bedroom in the wee hours and wake him up by jumping up on his bed screaming, "IT'S THE ECONOMY, STUPID!"

Then Obama would realize that if he had a handgun he could defend himself and suddenly start appealing to the NRA groups out there.*

I wish the democratic party would issue daily talking point snark to to the news media. "Confused" should be attached to Sarah Palin's name**, if we are going with polite terms, and "Biggest flip-flopper in history" to McCain's.

Then we need a time machine to go back and have Obama be totally generous and conciliatory about the Michigan and Florida delegations. THIS ISSUE WAS BIGGER THAN YOU, MR. OBAMA, AND YOU DIDN'T GET IT.

It is not stating a candidate preference for to say that Hillary was right that there was no reason she should have just decided to home with her tail between her legs because the cool kids told her to. That is what our primary process is FOR, and why it's not over until the Convention. If you don't want that to be legally true, then the party should ditch the super delegates.

* I am pro-smart gun control (which is not what we have for the most part), but I realize my party needs to throw this issue out of bed, because voters are totally irrational and we get hammered on this one.

** She seems to think Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are being funded by the taxpayers? WTF?

I say Hallelujah on all points!

I think this talking point of, "That's not change, that's more of the same" is too soft and is a bad strategy. I think the party is going to rue Florida and Michigan.

I am scared. So scared, that my mother's need to spout prophecy at me (she's not an Evangelical, she just likes drama) on the phone is starting to get under my skin. (Her latest theory is that William Branham prophecy applies to Palin, NOT Clinton as all the Evangelicals had been preaching, and she's tying it to the 2012 Mayan calendar nonsense.)

I am grateful not to know what the 2012 Mayan calendar nonsense is...

Though wait, nevermind. I probably can guess. Is it year 56x56 or something?

I am scared senseless.

It's the year the Mayan Calendar ends, and hence is thought to be the end of time.

The more comes out about Sarah Palin, the more fucking terrified of her I get. Yowza.

Yes. It's scared us enough that we're planning on taking days off to go stump two states away from where we live and try to get folks in a medium-sized town to swing their votes.

Could we use someone less annoying than Carville, like that old Six Flags guy or Gilbert Gottfried? Scratch that. I kind of like Gottfried.

But yeah, the party should absolutely ditch the super delegates. The super delegate system is a blight on the party. It's an embarrassment.

Nono, for waking up in the wee hours of the morning you need the most annoying man possible.

Today in the WSJ, Palin and McCain "wrote" a very detailed, advanced, op-ed on the future of Fannie and Freddie.

In college we call that "plagiarism."

Yes, but they've attached that label to Biden in every release from their campaign. Damage is done. Now it's time to fight back and attach worse to theirs.

How about being a federal advocate meaning funding the giantly expensive federal mandate so that local districts can afford fair and complete services for special needs children...

Yup, trying to work that in, but that's not really what I want to say.

I really want to write about the anti-choice league's use of Trig as a symbol, but a symbol that focuses only on the child in the womb (as usual), and not on the life that follows.

That makes a lot of sense.

I keep hearing women frothing that Sarah Palin is running for VP when she clearly has a baby at home who needs a full time parent.

This pisses me off as they seem to be assuming he needs a full-time mother and, say, his father can't parent him.

I am a little fed up on the other hand at how much he seems to have become a point of pride for his mother to wave under people's noses.

Either way? She scares the crap out of me.

Yeah. The anti-Palin response that she should be at home with her kids is stupid.

I can't get it right in 600 words yet.

I am dying to see it when you do.

Or even if it's just a draft.

We'll see how it goes. I was able to say it verbally to my mother tonight, but haven't had a chance to write yet tonight ... and now it's 9:30.

It totally is the economy, stupid.
