This is a quick hit for you all.

AND I SERIOUSLY THE ONLY PERSON IN AMERICA WHO DOESN'T GIVE A RAT'S SMELLY ASS WHAT THE CANDIDATE'S WIVES THINK?! I DON'T CARE ABOUT MICHELLE OBAMA, AND I CANNOT FATHOM ANYONE VOTING BASED ON ANYTHING SHE THINKS. DITTO FOR CINDY MCCAIN, WHO I AM SHITTIN' SURE WILL BE SPOUTING SOME CRAP OUT OF HER MOUTH SOON. AND, YEAH, EVEN THOUGH THE CIRCUMSTANCES WOULD BE DIFFERENT, I WOULDN'T GIVE TWO SHITS WHAT BILL HAD TO SAY IF IT WAS HILLARY ACCEPTING THE NOMINATION RIGHT NOW. WE SHOULD BE FOCUSED ON THE FUCKING CANDIDATES, NOT WHO THE CANDIDATES CHOOSE TO SLEEP WITH.

The best argument I've heard is that you can tell a lot about a person's character by who they choose to marry. Bullshit! Bullshit! Bullmotherfuckingshit!!!!! I almost wish someone would get nominated who married some dumbass who is all looks and no brains. Maybe then someone might realize that a person's ability to do a job like President has nothing to do with what kind of speech their significant other makes. I doubt it, but it would be nice.

I'll let you all go back to your word by word coverage of what Michelle Obama had to say at the Democratic Convention. It is fucking shameful to me that Senator Kennedy (who I don't necessarily agree with on all things), recovering from recent brain surgery, makes a speech, and it's relegated to the back of the burner in the news, because, oh, shit, we have to hear from Michelle fucking Obama.

I also think it's a dick move to not actually be at the convention if you're going to be getting the nomination, but I understand that you have to keep campaigning in Kansas, Barack. Have fun.

I can't wait for the abortion that is the Republican National Convention. Fucking politics.

Song of the day: "Fucking Hostile" Pantera.

I'd like to apologize. I won't because I'm that frustrated, but I'd like to.

Scott Hardie | August 26, 2008
Fwiw, I think the first night of the convention was intended to show a sympathetic, compassionate side to the party – thus Ted Kennedy and his brave comeback, Michelle Obama describing Barack as a man and husband instead of as a politician, and little in the way of attack barbs. I expect to see the rancor resumed today. :-\

I just now noticed that my title should be nsfw (not safe for work). I don't know what nfsw means...

:) I feel better though than I did when I wrote that.

28-V-2007 or Hippies will always attack an Elf, when they see one.

Random title of a spam message that came to my work e-mail address recently. Thought it was amusing enough to use as a post title! Well, it's Memorial Day, so take some time to appreciate the sacrifices others have made for you today. Go »

14-X-2009 or ...Aaaand I'm Back

Short trip, what? Iceland was pretty cool (as in cold as sin), but I had a great time! Reykjavik is a cool little city, but outside of there...nothing. Go »

16-IX-2009 or Behind The Scenes (GE)

For those who are not aware, my first character in Gothic Earth is retiring. I believe that Scott is going to keep him around to use for his own undoubtedly nefarious purposes, but essentially, I am done with him. There were many reasons behind it, but there was just a single overriding reason above all others: I found myself unwilling to continue with him. Go »

3-XI-2006 or Do Not Drink Alcoholic Beverages When Taking This Medicine

Does anyone listen to that? Really? ;) Are there any girls out there who give doctors (or nurses, or other medical professionals) a hard time when they get medications that should not be taken if you "are or could be pregnant"? Go »

25-IV-2008 or Seedy Underground

Here it is, at great risk to my personal safety. A photo of what goes on in the seedy underground world of adult Kickball. If you are squeamish, you might not want to look at this picture... Go »

21-V-2007 or Has it been a month already?

I can't believe it! I really suck! :( Anyhow, I am no longer receiving the attention of a member of the psychiatric profession, so that period of my life is over (for now). Go »
