a few last words before bed

To my fellow Republicans, it is what it is right? We lost and it's time to move on. Even though we'll never get credit for being gracious in defeat, well, it is what it is.

Congrats to Barack for a historic victory and I'm praying that you will be the leader so many believe you to be.

And by the way...

I'm afraid for what this means for the country. I hope Obama is the right leader, the leader God has selected to lead us through this difficult time. But I have strong doubts. Only time will tell.

voter oppression

Wow. This election has become totally personal to me for reasons beyond what I ever really thought could happen to me...

So I got home from happy hour with some coworkers after another long day of work. Paul finished cooking dinner and we headed down the street to our polling spot, just a couple blocks down.

Even though I voted without incident during the primary at this very polling place. Even though I have not TOUCHED my registration since the primaries, suddenly, somehow, I am registered to vote absentee??? GEE, isn't that a little f*cking convenient considering I am probably only one of ten registered Republicans in my dark blue little corner of this dark blue city? Not to mention, NO, I never received an absentee ballot anyway!!

So anyway, I had to vote provisionally, which basically means my vote won't count since there's no question how SF will vote. I can only hope my vote gets counted when it comes to the propositions but we shall see about that.

I really can't believe that this is how things have ended. As I write this McCain is giving his concession speech, and while I knew this was definitely a possible outcome, I always believed that at least if I voted, it would count in some small way. Now it won't. I'm so seriously pissed.

hoping for the best - preparing for the worst

Today was a lot better than I had hoped for.


I can't even think about.

I'll be voting in my blue little corner of America - McCain probably won't even beat Ron Paul in my district but that's fine. My voice will be heard. And hopefully I can help defeat some of the more ridiculous propositions and pass the sensible ones (since our legislature can't be bothered to do such mundane things as pass laws or anything).

Obama campaign mocks former POW for being disabled at the hands of America's enemies

Over at The Corner people have been wondering if perhaps there is a reason McCain doesn't use the computer or email...and they've found their answer:

McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain's encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He's an avid fan - Ted Williams is his hero - but he can't raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball. - Boston Globe (March 4, 2000)

Hm. So I guess this Obama ad is basically mocking a POW for the injuries he sustained in service of America. Stay classy Obama, stay classy.

It's kind of like the time Biden told a guy in a wheel chair to stand up. What exactly does the Obama campaign have against people with disabilities?

Dear Mr. Obama

I know this has been floating around the internet for awhile now but it somehow feels fitting to share it with you here today.

And by the way...

It seriously bugs me how all these liberals pretending to be up in arms over Sarah Palin "belittling" community organizers in her speech last night. I'm sure they're well aware of Obama's own comments where he compared his own experience as a candidate to her experience as a mayor (of course, ignoring the fact that she's been governor for almost two years) and talks about how she only managed 50 people and a budget of $12 million a year. This is what Sarah Palin was responding to in her speech and I'm sure the left, which can't stop drooling over every word uttered by their hero, knows it.

Update: Oh brother...Hot Air has a new story up and the title says it all: Man who ignored Palin's status as Governor aggrieved at lack of recognition as Senator

For a man, Obama sure cries a lot. It reminds me of the time when my little cousin and sister were four and five years old, respectively, and they were fighting with each other and my cousin bit my sister (pretty hard too!) but then he started loudly crying right along with my sister so that my grandma couldn't figure out what the hell was going on and who bit who.

Judgment to lead?

Apparently, Obama is finally conceding the undeniable fact that the surge is working. From his interview with Bill O'Reilly:

"I think that the surge has succeeded in ways that nobody anticipated," Obama said while refusing to retract his initial opposition to the surge. "I've already said it's succeeded beyond our wildest dreams."

Of course, being Obama, he's conveniently forgotten that one man certainly anticipated the success of the surge - that man being John McCain of course. Oops.

Obama also says in the interview that Iran is a "'major threat' and it would be 'unacceptable' for the rogue nation to develop a nuclear weapon" which is certainly a far cry from his own words earlier this year:

"I mean think about it, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, these countries are tiny compared to the Soviet Union, they don't pose a serious threat to us the way the Soviet Union posed a threat to us...You know Iran they spend 1/100th of what we spend on the military. I mean if Iran ever tried to pose a serious threat to us they wouldn't stand a chance..."

Of course it actually makes sense that Obama would completely contradict his own words from just a few months ago. Its pretty much become standard operating procedure for him to at first just say whatever comes naturally into his liberal head...and then later deciding that maybe John McCain is right after all and he better just say something similar. Need another example? How about his reaction to the Russian invasion of Georgia?

Sounds to me like the left's Anointed One is more of a follower than a leader.

like we needed any more proof that liberals are just full of you-know-what

Does anyone else find it really ironic that the liberal feministas who have spent years telling us that women can "have it all" (very Sex and the City, no?) are now questioning whether Governor Palin can be both a mother and the VP. What are they saying? That a woman can't be a mother and perform a tough a job as well as a man at the same time?

Not that I was really expecting liberals to have a rational reaction to the Palin pick...they are after all, well, liberals.

wondering how they make it through the day without hurting themselves

It's pretty sad when your opponent is so ignorant that you actually have to explain to them how you're mocking them before they get it.

For all their talk of intellect, they sure seem to have a tough time grasping some fairly simple concepts.

I wonder

At what point during this election I'll stop being so shocked that there are intelligent people out there who support a candidate as clearly inexperienced as Barack Obama (and not inexperienced in an endearing innocent way but in a fumbling bumbling arrogant way, like someone who doesn't know they just don't get it).

Can someone explain it to me? Because I just don't get it?

Supporting some real Republicans

After reading Michelle Malkin's lead story for today, I decided to donate to the NC GOP.

Time to show the jackass at the top of our ticket who REAL conservatives support. McCain just couldn't resist the opportunity to throw some conservatives under the bus could he? So eager to maintain his status as a liberal media darling that he couldn't even be bothered to watch an ad put out by principled conservatives before he ran out and accused them of being racist.

Which, by the way, can someone explain to me why it's racist to simply point out the truth? Did the NC GOP lie? Did Obama not attend that man's church for twenty years?

signs of life

A lot of people who knew me in college might be surprised at how largely uninvolved I am in politics nowadays. Don't get me wrong, I can still deliver a pretty impassioned argument when the situation calls for it, but for the most part I just don't have the energy to keep up and care so damn much anymore.

My excuse is that life has gotten in the way. And I'm not trying to say that I'm sooo busy these days - I'm well aware that there are mothers balancing demanding jobs who still find the time to stay up-to-date on current events and blog regularly - I'm just saying I'm a lot busier than I've ever been before and it's taking some adjusting. For the first time in my life I'm juggling several different things and for the most part don't have the option to blow off any of those things for a day or two or maybe a week if I feel like it. (Ahh college, how I miss you.)

I miss sitting. And staring. I miss doing nothing. So usually if I'm not at work and not doing something related to trying to make an offer on a condo we're interested in, then I opt to just sit and do something mindless like read about what fast-food excursions Britney Spears took that day or watch some basketball.

BUT! I think I am finally turning a corner. We've been at this house thing for over four months now and I feel like I have a much better feeling for the market we're looking in and the market as a whole (lucky for me I can get a good feeling for that at work). And I am also getting accustomed to not having the option of just staying home if I don't feel like going. Personal responsibility is a part of growing up, who knew? (You certainly wouldn't know it growing up here with the hippies who passed for "teachers.")

I also have to admit that Barack Obama is making things interesting for me again. Not because he "inspires" me or makes me less cynical or anything remotely like that. He interests me mainly because I think he has a real shot at becoming the next president of this country and I disagree so strongly with him on pretty much everything. I also don't believe he is as "above it" as most people believe. He is just smarter than most politicians, this makes him a better politician, not a saint.

For example:

McCain criticized Obama for saying in Tuesday night's Democratic debate that, after U.S. troops were withdrawn, as president he would act "if al Qaeda is forming a base in Iraq."

"I have some news. Al Qaeda is in Iraq. It's called `al Qaeda in Iraq,'" McCain told a crowd in Tyler, Texas, drawing laughter at Obama's expense. He said Obama's statement was "pretty remarkable."

Obama quickly answered back while campaigning in Ohio. "I do know that al Qaeda is in Iraq and that's why I have said we should continue to strike al Qaeda targets," he told a rally at Ohio State University in Columbus.

I'm not sure what Obama is suggesting here? That we pull out except for "strikes at al Qaeada targets"??? What does that mean? Air strikes? Except that probably means more innocent civilians wind up as collateral damage. Can someone please explain what his plan here is?

"But I have some news for John McCain," Obama added. "There was no such thing as al Qaeda in Iraq until George Bush and John McCain decided to invade Iraq. ... They took their eye off the people who were responsible for 9/11 and that would be al Qaeda in Afghanistan, that is stronger now than at any time since 2001."

Ah, now this is where Obama's political prowess (at least in today's sound-bite media) is revealed. As I pointed out above Obama's position on Iraq and al Qaeada makes no sense whatsoever. But here he has managed to deflect away from that by reminding people that they are mad at Bush for going to war in the first place. Continue being angry about the past and forget actually trying to do something constructive with what we are presently faced with. This is like how some liberals always bring up "the Indians/Native Americans" when you ask them to give you an example of how the United States is eeeeevillllll.

Obama said he intended to withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq "so we actually start going after al Qaeda in Afghanistan and in the hills of Pakistan like we should have been doing in the first place."

This is kind of a tangent, but doesn't this statement pretty much kill the less-than-well-thought-out idea that Obama's social spending can be paid for by withdrawing from Iraq? Clearly, and to my relief, Obama isn't planning on just disbanding the portion of our military that is currently serving in Iraq.

don't know dick

I've always considered Dick Morris to be one of the more sensible pundits out there so when I read this today I was understandably shocked. And a little bit horrified.

Will he be a good president? If he is half as skillful in serving as he has been in running, he can’t miss.


He's charming and good with the media though he lacks any actual experience, and has done zip since he became a US Senator (mainly because he started running for president nine months into his first term).

Also. Socialist.

In what dimension do those things make someone a good president??? Has Dick Morris completely lost his mind?

I was just talking to MM, a classmate from France (one of my better friends on that side of the pond owing to the fact that he, like myself, is an anal retentive super-nerd) who works at Soc*iete Ge*neral in Paris and that little turd gets NINE weeks of vacation!

If Barack Obama wins in November I am going to have to investigate what it takes to become French, because dude! If America is going to be socialist anyway I might as well be getting nine weeks of vacation and spending long weekends (thirteen national holidays and all) in the south of France. I will miss my chili cheese fries and adult-size soda cups, but I will comfort myself with hot, crispy croissants and cheap Bordeaux.

I voted

Voted NO on all the state propositions, I would have voted for 91 except the pro-argument says to vote NO since the exact same thing has already been passed into law by the legislature/Arnold.

I only had time to stop by the California Secretary of State website before voting so I didn't even realize there were city propositions until I saw them on my ballot. I literally laughed out loud when I read Proposition C which actually suggests that San Francisco buy Alcatraz from the federal government and turn it into the - I kid you not - Global Peace Center! And a guy named Da Vid is going to run it. Not David, that's too "normal." He is Da. Vid.

Sigh, only in San Francisco.

Oh yeah, and I voted for Romney.

red girl in blue city

No, I haven't voted yet. Yes, I'm going to. And no, I am not entirely sure yet who I am voting for, thanks for asking.

Now, I'm only 25 years old, and since it was the ridiculousness of the aftermath of the 2000 elections that got me interested in politics...I really have nothing to compare this election to. Other than the 2004 elections (during which I helped fund-raise for Bush and many other Republicans).

So you can imagine just how completely uninspired I am feeling right now. The only candidate I can kind of muster up some excitement for right now is Romney and I can't even get that excited about him because the unlikeliness of him actually being able to win a general election does not bode well for him.

But geez! I just can't bring myself to cast a vote for McCain when there are still some actual Republicans in the race. Flawed as they may be.

Paul should be home in half an hour or so, so I still have time to ponder. I'm afraid to go to the polling place alone since I'm a registered Republican living in a very blue city. The hubs and I are probably the only two in all of SF!

Picking my horse

I've decided that for now, I'm hanging my hat with Romney. He probably won't win and McCain will be the nominee *shudder* but I've decided to cross that bridge when I get there.

At least until next Tuesday, I can hope.

I may not have agreed with the blogosphere's take on Huckabee, but it's nice to see I'm right there with them on McCain.

If McCain wins, I would have to seriously considering not casting a vote at all this year.

Not undecided (only sort of)

So another week's flown by in the blink of an eye. Is this just what happens when you get old? Time passes and before you know it it's 2008. And it's not only 2008, but it's the middle and suddenly becoming the end of January 2008.

Luckily, I did remember to register and after a few seconds hesitation, I once again registered as a Republican. I have a feeling November is going to be seriously ugly and painful but I guess I'd still rather be a Republican than a Decline to State.

Who am I voting for in the primary? I honestly still don't know. I think it may end up being eeny-meeny-miny-mo between a few candidates.

two cents

My interest in politics has been waning for awhile now and I must admit that ever since I started working I pretty much squashed the political bug that drove me to be so passionate and involved in the first place. It was mostly an unconscious act, an inevitability of working ten hours a day at a job that demands 109% of my attention at all times. But a small part of it was that I just couldn't bring myself to care anymore. I grew so disillusioned with the world of politics and politicians I would get too upset reading/thinking/discussing politics and so I stopped.

With this in mind I think it's fair to say that I really don't know much about what's going on in politics these days. I've only seen a couple debates (and even then it was only because Paul turned them on and wouldn't let me change the channel) and I haven't been reading the blogs at all. So I was really surprised this morning when I decided to take my first cruise around the blogosphere in months to see how much bloggers seem to dislike Huckabee. I heard him called untrustworthy and slick? Which I find confusing because I've only heard him speak a few times but I've grown to like him more each time I do hear him. I thought he was a likable dude and I'm not sure all the negativity towards him is coming from? The Romney attacks? (Of course, through it all, John Hawkins has remained a great read and always reasonable).

Anyway, I don't really believe Huckabee will win the whole thing but I'm glad he ran because I think his campaign makes a point. A point about how people really feel about Christianity in this country. I've heard people call Huckabee crazy because of his position on abortion and because they see him as a religious extremist. Granted I am in San Francisco, but I still find it hard to believe that people would be shocked at a pastor being completely against abortion. Even on the blogs there was an obvious resentment towards his constantly referring to his religion. Why? Is it that taboo to speak what you believe nowadays? Well, if what you believe in is that the Christ came to earth and died for our sins, anyway.

The controversy over his Merry Christmas commercial also baffled me - the man, the former pastor - wants to say "Merry Christmas" to people at Christmastime and it's supposed to be some slick political move?? Huh?

And I've read attacks on him because "he takes money from companies that do embryonic stem cell research" (implied: he's a hypocrite) or because "he pardons dangerous criminals" but you know what? I've actually heard his rebuttal to those claims and I believed him. He came across as very believable and honest.

And I think this is how most people who aren't plugged into the political machine will feel about him. He probably still won't win though because people who don't much care about politics don't bother voting in primaries.

On a related note, I really hope McCain doesn't win.

The truth can be funny

I have to admit that sometimes Ann Coulter can be pretty funny, even if she can also be pretty offensive. But her latest article is just priceless:

Girl-power feminists who got where they are by marrying men with money or power -- Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Arianna Huffington and John Kerry -- love to complain about how hard it is for a woman to be taken seriously.

Go read the whole thing.
