So I’ve been convincing myself that it is okay to skip inconsequential writing because I’m working on a book. The problem is that when I stop blogging or at least writing in my journal, then the words start pounding on the inside of my skull again and I start turning a little nuts. That’s not a good thing. I am not the best human when I am nuts. I guess even when I work on a book I will have to write some little blurb here or in the journal or I’ll never end up completing the book because I will be in an insane asylum. What a wierd brain I have, one that requires I write in order to be functional. It also doesn’t seem to remember this until it’s going blathering nuts and I start wondering why I’m such a bitch all the time then I think Well duh, Lara. It’s like food and sleep. I know if I’m off and losing my mind, food and sleep are usually required. I should add writing to the list because lately, I’ll have the food and sleep and still be going nuts. Duh. Write.
I have had a lot of thoughts about the political situation in this country, but there is so much to say and so many people saying it, I feel a bit overwhelmed to even know where to begin. The progressives seem to understand that the McCain Palin ticket is a disaster. It’s all we’re hearing about. My question is whether average Joe American who pays little attention to politics can see past the fact that Palin has hot legs and McCain is a good ol’ boy. Unfortunately, I’m not so sure. Of course, there is the consolation that a person with these views would not likely vote, but that’s not much of a consolation.
I read an op ed piece today whose author said he did not want someone he could take out for a beer as the leader of the free world, he wanted a super hero. My sentiments exactly. I would love to try and reach average Joe American with that image…we need superheroes running our country or we will not be leaders for very long. I cringe at the thought of what the rest of the world will think if McCain is elected, how humiliating that will be, especially after Bush. I am not a person who gives much credence to what other people think, but I do care that our country does not appear as a pathetic joke. If that moron and his Caribou Barbi are elected (or steal the election, which is a possibility with Diebold still in the picture), we may as well kiss our asses goodbye. Or stage a revolution. Unfortunately, in 2008, I do not see many people willing to go there.
I read another article where the author argued that we need to send Hilary after Palin. I could not agree more. This would eliminate the complaint that the men are picking on her because she is a woman, and Hilary is brilliant as an attack dog. I wish she would do this. Come on, Hilary. If you are with the Democrats, do this for your country. Take that pitiful excuse for a woman down. She wants to claim she’s on your side, but she’s so far from anything you represent, she deserves your intelligence, your debate, everything you have to offer. Go for it. Do it for the country. Do it for women.
Apparently Obama went on the O’Reilly Factor. Here’s hoping they don’t edit the piece before airing it in such a manner to make Obama the fool. I don’t trust that O’Reilly bastard or his network one bit. Putting someone who can answer questions intelligently next to a man who screams, cajoles, and calls names….I’m not so sure. We will see.
Well this is it. We’ll see if I can tame the word poundings.
