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.

Warning! I'll be trying to watch my language, but I make no promises. Keep children and people with low tolerance for profanity away. Go »

7-VIII-2006 or Pants off Dance off!

I'm still laughing like a loon! I watched a show on Fuse network (which I've never even watched before...or knew existed) called "Pants off Dance off!". Go »

12-II-2009 or Say What Now?

I got my little Ticketmaster e-mail, about upcoming shows in my area, and I got really excited, because I looked it over quick, and I saw "An Evening With Dio"! So as I dance around the office, with "Holy Diver" running through my head and a joyous smile blossoming on my face, I look a little closer... An Evening With Il Divo. Go »

10-VII-2006 or Thinking too hard

I'm thinking too hard about it. I'm letting my fears get the best of me. I need to relax and just deal with things from a position of confidence, not weakness. Go »

5-XII-2007 or I Think I Need a Break

I know this is the last thing anyone wants to hear, but I have been so unable to effectively play Rock Block lately. I can't think 2 moves ahead without forgetting what I was doing. I might be the first person to run out of cards from losing all the time! Go »

7-IV-2009 or Back In Action

I'm not good at getting in here regularly. It's not that I don't love you all as much as I used to, because I totally do! I just have problems staying focused on stuff lately. Go »
