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.

We get it already! (the whole baby-hating thing)

John Hawkins is live-blogging the State of the Union:

9:28: We no longer need embryonic stem cells. Republicans applaud. Democrats are apparently unhappy we no longer need to destroy human life for science. No applause.

Right on point, as usual. Paul pointed out the exact same thing as they panned across the audience. Odd that they wouldn't applaud a breakthrough in medical science. I guess removing the baby-killing aspect takes all the fun out of it for the Democrats.

Marcy Kaptur Gets Real Confused

Does anyone else think it might not be the best idea to let this woman have a say in our economic/fiscal policy? Why do politicians who don't know their head from their you-know-where when it comes to economics have the power to tax us?

(Anyone surprised she's a far left whack-job?)

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.

suck it up

Glad to see Michelle and I are on the same page when it comes to the subprime catastrophe.

we survived!

So apparently, the worst is over. We do have an enormous tree branch resting on our barbecue on the patio but we are alive and that's what matters.

The storm actually was very scary since I was up on the 18th floor for most of it and it sounded like I was working out of a large creaky boat. At one point we looked outside and it was raining so hard it almost looked like a white out. By the time I got out though it was just sprinkling and thanks to Storm Watch 2008 I had an umbrella with me.

It totally amuses me how rain, which I hear is a normal part of life everywhere else in the country, causes panic attacks and Storm Watches and the like in California. The last time it rained in the city there happened to be someone visiting from the NY branch and he kept laughing at how freaked out everyone was getting by the fact that it was sprinkling.

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.

Hm, so I guess maybe a politician who says Merry Christmas at Christmas-time isn't so offensive after all.

Happy New Year!

I've just come to the realization that I am nowhere near as excited as Paul is about the condo we've put an offer out for. I would be TOTALLY excited about it if I knew in my gut that we really were getting it at a steal. I think we're getting it at some sort of discount but I'm nowhere near the certainty I would like to have before making this kind of commitment. I gotta say, so far, this has been much scarier than getting married.

Speaking of marriage, I think it's the reason I just realized I am not totally on board with this condo-purchasing-endeavor. Because, you see, my husband? He is so excited at the prospect of owning! His! Own! Place! Which he can UPGRADE! (Thus making the place even more ridiculously expensive than it already is!) And when he gets all excited like that I get confused and think I'm all excited too. Because he's just so darn adorable when he's into a project like that. And then we spend an entire five days of vacation scouring the net for the perfect faucet before I go to work and am actually away from him for several hours in a row and realize, you know what? I don't know about all this. Isn't it happening kind of quickly? Don't we want to think it through a little more?

But at the same time, what if this IS a great deal and by the time I'm done thinking the opportunity is gone?


What a way to start the new year.
