I now confess to the entire Internets that I have had a schoolgirl crush on Joe Biden for 20 years. Yes, he's a "gaffe machine," mostly because he doesn't always pause to pick the right words, or, okay, fully form the ideas, before speaking from his heart. I don't always agree with him, but - love. Testosterone and strong verbs - and decency and those twinkling eyes. :::swoons and fans self::: This article nails it - and the comments! OMG, there's a sorority of Bidenettes out there! Squeal! Obama made me very happy when he picked Biden as his VP.
Another thing that makes me happy: as I am writing this, my TV is spewing another lying bullshit John McCain ad. Quickly followed by a reasonable Obama ad. I'm really, really happy that the Obama campaign isn't taking the shit, and responds quickly with factual ads of their own without stooping to McCain's scummy level.
And that concludes my political ranting for the week. I've been having some stress related issues - insomnia, etc., so I am deliberately pulling back from too much political talk.
Today Murphy goes to the groomer, I do garage sale prep work, we both visit my mother later. Action helps me feel somewhat less Overwhelmed.
