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.

19-I-2007 or And now for something completely different

It's Friday, so it must be time for Aaron's pointless ramblings on subjects various and nefarious, topics wonderful and blunder-full, and generally funky and spunky. Yeah, that last one wasn't so good, but the first two weren't much with the funny either. :( Anyhow, it should be an uneventful weekend, so I'm looking forward to that. Go »
