Poor Choice

I got home just in time to kiss the kids and put them to bed and flip on the TV. I chose with my head rather than my heart and I think chose poorly. The debate put me to sleep. I woke up to my husband's snoring so my guess is that he wasn't that enthralled in it either. I'm sure Housewives would have not only kept me awake but would have also filled me with enough fluff to last the week. Good thing Bravo keeps their more popular shows on a continuous loop so I'll be able to catch it sometime this week.

My thoughts on the debate... As indicated by my McCain/Palin sign, I support them. I fundamentally believe in what they stand for from the economy (big fan of Reagan and trickle down economics) to energy to the social issues. I do not believe that he will be another 4 years of the current administration (which I think history will look more fondly on than we do in the present). Unfortunately, I think too many people vote on charisma and showmanship. If this were a beauty contest or a who's most likable contest, I would say Obama wins. However, being well spoken, polished and looking good in a suit won't take care of our current needs. Or our future needs. In an Utopian world, with rainbows and unicorns, Barack would probably be a great candidate. But that's not the world I live in. Sorry to get all political but I'm scared and I need to support my candidate.

Well said. I completely agree with what you wrote. Obama may be a better public speaker, but his well chosen and flowing words are not what America needs.

Thanks for your visit and comment on my WW. She has so much fun eating her cupcake all by herself. By the time she was finished, she really wasn't as dirty as she looked.

Have a great day.
