A Mommy Hug To Soothe The Soul

Mommys know how to make things better. When your sick, they give you soup, when your sad they give you the ever curing mommyhug. So Ive been a bit of a mess emotionally lately with work, my business and just life. My mommy calls me this morning as Im feeling like death and instinctively knows how to make me smile. She tells me to youtube Letterman from last night (after lecturing me on how I should have watched Bush's speech. I just couldnt stomach it guys, Im sorry). It was like she reached over the phone lines and gave me the best mommy hug ever. Im sure this clip brought me closer to god.

A little background.
SO unsurprisingly, John McCain had a scheduled interview with Letterman and cancelled 15 minutes prior to "race to washington to tend to the economic crisis". Letterman gets live footage of McCain getting makeup and prepping for his interview with Katie Couric. Basically Letterman rips him a hilarious asshole.

Dont Drink the Red Kool Aid

So, those pesky republicans are at it again with McCain postponing the debates (and possibly my debate watch party on friday) because he wants to tend to the "economic crisis" that is "historical" in Washington and asks Barack Obama to do the same.

Ahhem.. I smell bullshit.

Here is the real plan. McCain postpones debates- Obama says no. McCain then cries "Obama is interested more in being a rockstar than the economy".

Those damn republicans are so crafty.

I guess the economy aint "fundamentaly sound" like you previously stated in this video shot last June of this year, is it McCain? Furthermore I would like someone to please tell me what the hell John McCain is going to do to help this situation? At 9:00 friday evening? Know what I think? I think someone is trying to get briefed on relevant issues that they really know nothing about. Just a guess.

McCain and GWB.. More of the same..

I also want to talk about the national challenges we face. I believe that -- I'm an optimist. I'm an optimist about our economy. And I should be. The fundamentals are strong, interest rates are low, monetary policy is sound. I can assure you I will work with Congress to control excessive federal spending. One reason they give the President the veto power is to make sure the Congress doesn't over-spend. Over-spending could serve as an anchor on economic vitality and growth.

-- GW Bush, August 2002

Asked how he responds to economists' concerns that the nation is at increasing risk of recession, the president said: "The fundamentals of our nation’s economy are strong. Inflation is down. Job markets are steady and strong."

-- GW Bush, September 2007

The administration worked with the House -- it may surprise you that Republicans and Democrats can actually get something done in a constructive fashion, but it happened in this case, for the good of the country. And now the Senate is debating the bill, and it's very important for the Senate to finish their work quickly because the sooner we can get money into our consumers' hands, the more likely it is, is that this economy will get back -- recover from this period of uncertainty.

The fundamentals are strong, we're just in a rough patch, as witnessed by the employment figures today. And I'm confident we can get through this rough patch and one way to do it is for Congress and the administration to work collaboratively and get this deal done.

-- GW Bush, February, 2008

"I am hopeful the worst is over,'' McCain said in answering a question about liquidity in the market. "I still believe the fundamentals of our economy are strong.''

-- John McCain, March 2008

"You know that there's been tremendous turmoil in our financial markets and Wall St. And it is -- people are frightened by these events. Our economy, I think still -- the fundamentals of our economy are strong. But these are very, very difficult times."

-- John McCain, Sept 2008

Publicly Release Medical Records

I dont know how I feel about this. While the thought of Sarah Palin becoming president of the United States is extremely fucking scary, I dont know how I feel about someone being forced to make their medical records public. It seems to me that if you vote McCain, just understand he is 72 years old with a history of cancer, and perhaps you should pay attention to the bear hunting, gun toting "soccer mom" he has nominated as the vice presidential candidate.

At any rate, here is the video. Lets all try to place nice.

Another Tasty Tidbit From Our Friends at Faux News and our Favorite Cooky Conserv- Karl Rove

Karl Rove's conversation with Chris Wallace (hey did you know that’s Biggies Real name? Christopher Wallace?!? Rock!) on Fox News (Sunday, September 14, 2008):

WALLACE: Do you have any problem with what McCain is doing by, for instance, saying —which a lot of people thought was kind of made up — that Obama was smearing Palin?

ROVE: Well, first of all, I do think that the lipstick remark was an inappropriate — and maybe it was unconscious, but it was a deliberate slap at Gov. Palin.
The only time this word has intruded in recent months in the campaign was in her self-deprecating remark at the convention. So for him to use the lipstick remark less than two weeks after she used it struck me as too much of a coincidence not to have been a deliberate attack.
But, look, both campaigns are making a mistake, and that is they are taking whatever their attacks are and going one step too far. We saw this this week, for example, in the Obama ad where he makes the point, a legitimate point, that John McCain came to the United States Congress in 1982 and that he has been a longtime Washington insider. But they then say he doesn't even know how to use a — you know, doesn't send e-mail. Well, this is because his war injuries keep him from being able to use a keyboard. He can't type. You know, it's like saying he can't do jumping jacks.
Well, there's a reason why he can't raise his arms above his head. There's a reason why he doesn't have the nimbleness in his fingers.

WALLACE: All right, and for fair game, what is McCain doing that goes a step too far?

ROVE: Well, McCain has gone in some of his ads — similarly gone one step too far, and sort of attributing to Obama things that are, you know, beyond the 100 percent truth test. They don't need to attack each other in this way. They have legitimate points to make about each other.

Did You Know Good Ole Boys Can Have Vaginas?

Before we get to know Sarah Palin, perhaps it would be wise to get to know Todd Palin, as we have learned through numerous accounts of governmental officials in Alaska that Todd aka “the first dude” plays a huge role in Sara Palins decision making. In fact it has been stated through several lawmakers that the "First Dude" was present in what they believed were supposed to be private meetings. Umm am I the only one that kind of finds this disturbing?

AN interesting article by the NY Times that highlights this whole issue.

Read the article here

So Palin who claims to be against the “good ole boy ethics” in Washington, seems to play the same games as the good ole boys, hiring unqualified classmates to hold jobs in office- jobs where they held no experience. “Brownie” comes to mind, no? The inside joke is that her high school yearbook doubles as a directory of state Government.

Investigations are also being conducted regarding Palins personal Vandettas blurring the lines of profession and personal state government decisions. The use of personal email address for political purposes that helped in withholding information in order to get laws passed. In a recent NY Times investigation, it is said that

“Rick Steiner, a University of Alaska professor, sought the e-mail messages of state scientists who had examined the effect of global warming on polar bears. (Ms. Palin said the scientists had found no ill effects, and she has sued the federal government to block the listing of the bears as endangered.) An administration official told Mr. Steiner that his request would cost $468,784 to process.
When Mr. Steiner finally obtained the e-mail messages — through a federal records request — he discovered that state scientists had in fact agreed that the bears were in danger, records show.”
That email picture of the girl in a bikini holding a shotgun comes to mind, but in all seriousness, this is the same cronyism that is going on today in Washington, and IMO this woman is sounding more and more like George Bush- with a vagina except Laura Bush knows how to sit there and be Pretty. Why cant Todd Palin do the same?

BTW, thank you to the conservatives who feel a need to push their agendas on my blog. I would appreciate if you would stick to the topic at hand rather than pushing your agenda, but I cant complain- my readership has gone up from 10 page loads to 64 in one day!

After I stopped laughing...

I got really scared.

I love how she goes on all snarky about Obama being just a "community organizer" (btw how dare you given your skinny ass resume) but in this interview goes on to say that this country desire isnt for someone with a big fat resume because its not politics as usual. Ummmmmm... what?

This girl is uninformed and just delusional. Its absolutely stunning. Just listen to her views on invading Pakistan, on the war. And I love how she backtacks on her wacko sermon by stating her comment about the war being "gods will" as it being a quote from Abraham Lincoln. Know what? This is just silly.

Attention everyone- please watch this- please please please watch this because if McCain is elected this is our Vice President. If something happened to McCain, ladies and gents, this would be our president. WOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

Charlie Gibson made her look like SUCH AN ASS.

Sarah Palin and Planned Parenthood

Im so totally doing this... absolutely bril.

Dear Friends:

We may have thought we wanted a woman on a national political ticket, but the joke has really been on us, hasn't it? Are you as sick in your stomach as I am at the thought of Sarah Palin as Vice President of the United States?

Since Palin gave her speech accepting the Republican nomination for the Vice Presidency, Barack Obama's campaign has raised over $10 million dollars. Some of you may already be supporting the Obama campaign financially; others of you may still be a little honked off over the primaries. None of you, however, can be happy with Palin's selection, especially on her positions on women's issues. So, if you feel you can't support the Obama campaign financially, may I suggest the following fiendishly brilliant alternative?

Make a donation to Planned Parenthood. In Sarah Palin's name. And here's the good part: when you make a donation to PP in her name, they'll send her a card telling her that the donation has been made in her honor. Here's the link to the Planned Parenthood website:

You'll need to fill in the address to let PP know where to send the "in Sarah Palin's honor" card. I suggest you use the address for the McCain campaign headquarters, which is:

McCain for President
1235 S. Clark Street
1st Floor
Arlington, VA 22202

Sarah Pipeline

So my mom used to have this friend named Ricky Pipeline. He was pretty awesome. He showed me how to make a bong out of a pepsi bottle. A skill that has taken me quite far in life and given be entrance to countless parties in Brooklyn that I otherwise would not have been invited to. It greatly influenced who I am today, and dammit if that isnt Gods will, then I just dont know what is! So with that being said, have a seat, grab some popcorn and a drink. Because this is about to get interesting.

Now videos of Sarah Palin are passing through the internet quicker than you can say “church and state”. Apparently, according to Sarah, the war in Iraq is “Gods Plan”. Hmm.. well, I tend to think that the war in Iraq is more so the plan of the the REAL terrorsists- GWB and his cronies. Now, by nature, Im a girls girl. But my uterus just cant feel the bond, I just dont want to jump up and sing "Im Every Woman"
when I see this. Infact, Im waiting for the evangelists to come running out and speaking in tongues and give sermon on the "damn gays" and those pesky mooooooooooooooslims.

Above it all, though this line kills me
“so I can pray for gods will to be done, unifying people and companies”
umm.. what?!? I can pray for Gods will that you and McCain are permanantly denied access to a microphone and the thought of you making any ANY sort of logical decisions regarding this country scares the pipeline out of me!

Amen. Im off to go read the Koran.

RNC Day 3.. Some thoughts.

My notes

a scary scary scary dude. Seriously, why would you purposely remind people that Bush used the term axis of evil? Even the conservative commentators were looking at each other like omg did that just happen? Oh yes it did, honey. Two words
Train. Wreck.

Some little "treats" from Romneys speech:

"Did you hear any Democrats talk last week about the threat from radical, violent Jihad? Republicans believe that there is good and evil in the world. Ronald Reagan called-out the Evil Empire. George Bush labeled the terror-sponsor states the Axis of Evil. And at Saddleback, after Barack Obama dodged and ducked every direct question, John McCain hit the nail on the head: radical violent Islam is evil, and he will defeat it!

Republicans prefer straight talk to politically correct talk!

Republicans, led by John McCain and Sarah Palin, will fight to preserve the values that have preserved the nation. We will strengthen our economy and keep us from being held hostage by Putin, Chavez and Ahmadinejad. And we will never allow America to retreat in the face of evil extremism!"

umm.. what? After hearing this I wanted to start my own fucking Jihad.

"We need change all right — change from a liberal Washington to a conservative Washington! We have a prescription for every American who wants change in Washington — throw out the big government liberals and elect John McCain! It’s the same prescription for a stronger economy. I spent 25 years in the private sector. I’ve done business in many foreign countries. I know why jobs come and why they go away. And I know that liberals don’t have a clue. They think we have the biggest and strongest economy in the world because of our government. They’re wrong. America is strong because of the ingenuity and entrepreneurship and hard work of the American people. The American people have always been the source of our nation’s strength and they always will be!"

again, really? THIS was when I looked over at the wall to check that I wasnt having some drug flashback from the 90s. Like when you would smoke too much pot and say something then think.. hmm.. did I just say that?

"Democrats want to use the slowdown as an excuse to do what their special interests are always begging for: higher taxes, bigger government and less trade with other nations.
It’s the same path Europe took a few decades ago. It leads to moribund growth and double-digit unemployment."

Yeah, I guess thats why the Euro is worth almost DOUBLE the US Dollar. Thats why when we as US CItizens go to EUROPE on vacation we can barely afford McDonalds, right?

"We strengthen our people and our economy when we preserve and promote opportunity. Opportunity is what lets hope become reality."

do we really want to talk about providing opportunity? Opportunity for whom?

"Opportunity expands when there is excellence and choice in education, when taxes are lowered, when every citizen has affordable, portable health insurance, and when constitutional freedoms are preserved."

Whats ironic about this part is this COULD have been part of Hillarys or anyone elses speech at the DNC!

"Opportunity rises when children are raised in homes and schools that are free from pornography, promiscuity and drugs; in homes that are blessed with family values and the presence of a father and a mother."

how do I even respond to this? Do I have to? I think I need to go lay down now. And watch some porn.

He actually made me laugh out loud. He called Obama a "person of color" and claimed he admired what he has accomplished as a person of color. It was one of those moments that made me ashamed of being white for a second. And that story about the teacher who took the desks away until the children gave her the "correct" answer has to how to earn their school desks (for those who missed it.. the correct answer was "you dont have to cuz soldiers earned it for you" and one by one the veterans walked in and lined up the desks, quietly in neat rows" LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. OMG Seriously I almost shot diet coke out of my nose. Is this for fucking real?!? With the health care that war veterans face in this country are you REALLY telling this story? And the tired line about how when McCain was captured and they told him if he reprimanded his country they would set him free, yet, he refused because he would rather go home with honor.. know what? That just makes him a fucking dumbass. I would tell captures what ever they want to hear if that means I can go home to my family and my COUNTRY sooner. Jihad? Yeah sure. Can I go home now? OH and the best line of his speech. "I dint become a Republican because I grew up rich. I became a republican because I didn't want to grow up poor depending on the government". Thank you for the entertainment Huckabee. That was truly truly hilarious.

So aside from me desperately wanting (almost needing) you to get that lisp fixed, what the fuck kind of speech was that? The Reagan Revolution? Are you serious? The "make a decision" "point" you tried to make. Lets talk about John McCain. As John Kerry so eloquently put it the Senator McCain differs greatly from Candidate McCain in just policies alone. McCain even says he would now vote against an immigration bill that HE wrote! Lets talk about the climate bill that he now criticizes that HE wrote, lets talk about about the wartime taxcuts that McCain now supports that he claimed was immoral. And don't you think given Palin's THIN resume, it would be wise to stay off of the inexperience subject? To criticize Obamas service in the community of Chicago- a position that put him in direct contact with the people and the bridge between the people and shady politicians. Sure, he could have gone and made a ton of money as a private practice lawyer, and hell, Rudy I INTERVIEWED at your firm in Midtown! But instead, he worked FOR the people IN the communities you know nothing about. Honestly, Rudy, the ONLY thing that the rest of America gives you recognition for was being at the grounds of the WTC attacks. This wasn't a choice for you. You were simply at what you have made the RIGHT place at the RIGHT time. And that comment about Hillary at 3AM, just wow to line that up with a statement accusing the democratic party of asking how Palin plans to be a mother and be vp? I have followed this race religiously and I would love to see PROOF of this statement.

Im tempted to just say ok Dems fire away at the fact Palins 17 year old daughter is knocked up. How much you wanna bet she ends up voting democrat in 5 years? Because the issue isnt that this girl like many other American Girls got pregnant at 17, the issue is her mother is out there claiming that abstinence education is more effective than sex education, and how her very own daughter has proven to her that this is not the case. This is a person who is up for the VP slot in a presidential race. Its like how can I sell acne wash and claim it works if I have zits all over my face?

I had to go back and share with you all you who missed it this tasty tidbit re: Palin
"And she’s already had more executive experience than the entire Democratic ticket combined.
She’s been a mayor. I love that.
I’m sorry — I’m sorry that Barack Obama feels that her hometown isn’t cosmopolitan enough.
I’m sorry, Barack, that it’s not flashy enough. Maybe they cling to religion there."
I think every American with a brain was staring at the screen fighting the urge to throw the remote.

Please Rudy, shut up so we can see Palin. Drill Baby Drill? OMG that made me want to go randomly fight someone.

Slinkies Stinkies and Slugs

So someone gave me a pretty funny quote today, since I have taken to printing out inspirational "keep on going" quotes to get me through the nightmare that is my life right now. Yes I am that chick at work with inspirational quotes printed and taped on her computer monitor to remind herself that life doesnt always suck, but I digress.

So the quote today goes

"Some people are like slinkies. They are not really good for anything; however, they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs."

Can someone out there find out who wrote this? I have a feeling that they might be my secret twin. If its some girl in her moms vintage dress and obvious-that-she-cut-them-herself-bangs, we need to talk. I have a feeling she may be the chick who threw a mug at my boyfriend last Sat.

Anyway, regarding the slinky, these thoughts ran through my head last night as I watched what I could stomach of the RNC. I am truly trying to be open minded but when Joe Lieberman got up there and said "when the war in Iraq wasn’t popular and people were losing hope McCain sent more troops and now we are winning". I just couldn’t. Continue. Anymore. I actually got that little pre vomit spit and I had to change the channel. I burped up curry for the rest of the night. Seriously, WTF?!?!? I don’t get it. How can you be a logical person and think that the war in Iraq is OK? I think I’m only following the RNC because its fascinating to me. Like frying slugs with salt. Its mesmerizing, yet, disturbing, and kind of sad. Maybe not as sad as the amount of time I used to spend doing that, but still... pretty fucking sad. Dont think I wont be infront of that TV tonight to watch Palin speak and try to tug at the heartstrings of all Americans with the fact her daughter is 19 and pregnant. Palin, here is a dose of reality for you. I was 19 and pregnant. My daughter is starting Jr. High this week. Guess what? You still suck. AND I really wanted to like you because you have a great approval rating in Alaska all while posing in leather skirts and heels. But I cant. Know why? Because your Presidential candidate is up there in age, there is a good chance that he could DIE and YOU be the president and while you may be good, honey, you are no Joe Biden and you certainly are NO Hillary Cliton.. lol. typing that even makes me laugh. End of story.

On another note, has anyone REALLY looked at the audience at the RNC? If you watched the DNC it was like "parttayyyy!". Lots of young hip voters. And man, Bill had to practically shout "SHUT THE FUCK UP" to get people to be quiet to allow him to speak. I’m still convinced there were ushers along the bottom of the stage to collect the panties that were thrown. I think I saw out of the corner of my eye Michelle sneak a pair of Vicky’s in the mix, but I COULD be wrong. And after Obama’s speech my best friend called me to say "girl is it me, or is that Obama kind of hot?". I really don’t think this is going to happen after the McCain speech, but I could be wrong. I don’t know if its because the audience is all accompanied by their nurses and a frigging air tank or maybe they didn’t have Stevie Wonder- but I have to think that people JUST MAYBE are thinking "something is really wrong about this". That HAS to be the case, right?

In other news, I have been following the Casey Anthony case to the point of unhealthy obsession. I crack myself up at how fast I become a fucking prosecuting attorney while watching this whole train wreck unfold. So last night Cindy Anthony, the mother of the girl whose daughter went missing "mysteriously". And I really feel bad for this woman. She really wants to believe her daughter Casey is not a lying trifling ass tramp. Its right there, clear as day. This girl neglected that baby, the baby died and she put her in the trunk and she, with the help of someone else (cuz lord knows this girl isnt too much smarter than a two sliced toaster). A part of me feels that somehow the father is involved. The fact that not a whole lot of attention is going towards who the father of little Caylee is, sends a flag out to me. I mean Casey was known to get around a bit, and frankly, I mean as Nancy Grace said "I wont call the kettle black" but I think the fact that this kid if they know who her dad is and he has family and the kid is missing, why wouldn’t this be looked in to? The father, being a detective would surely know where to plant a body. And the fact that this stench came from the back of car and it was identified by the BODY FARM forensics team as being that of a decomposing body. Umm hello?

The fact that no body has yet been found, yet evidence of decomposition was found in the trunk of the car is pretty alarming. I hope I’m wrong. I hope this kid is alive. But from what I’m seeing, the chances are slimmer and slimmer. The mothers total disregard for the fact that ANYTHING happened is so sad. If it is found that she infact accidentally killed this baby, they need to put that bitch in General Population to get a true prison style beat down.
