Sunday afternoon randomness
What? (Booth) - lerdo
Went back to sleep; now I feel like hell.  *blinks*


From Gail Collins:  A Voter's Guide

Is there any other conceivable downside to going with the man of honor?

We currently have an occupant in the White House who has spent the last five years sticking to his principles. You can see how well that worked out.

Well said, Ms. Collins. 


We went out to dinner with some friends last night.  Six of the other folks were new to us.  One of them was especially entertaining because he was rather free with his decidedly NOT PC comments.  A couple gems re:  his thoughts on Hillary Clinton:

1.  Every time he sees her, he thinks to himself that she couldn't handle one man, so how would she handle a whole country of them?

2.  When she talks, he thinks, "Oh, another whiny female."  Already plenty of those in his life; why would he want one as president?

I'm positive he isn't the only person who holds these kinds of opinions--whether secretly or quite openly. 

I support Obama, but not because Hillary's a woman.  *shakes head*  Fuck.  Have we really not come further than this? 


I'm going to upload a couple random tracks:

The Devlins - Waiting

John Barrowman - Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic

Be back with more later.  Feel free to snag with or without comments. *slouches off in search of caffeine*

... and more randomness. ;)

I'm not very much informed of what's happening with Clinton-Obama. Here in Spain we have our own fighting for March 9 elections and it's hard enough hearing what's going on here, that I tend to not paying attention when TV talks about USA. We may keep our current president, that is not that bad, I may say, or get stuck with the other man, who seem come directly from the 30's to change things to as they were back with a dictator, seeing evolution of humanity as the enemy.

We'll always have the fandom. And music. Recently discovered.

I'm voting for Obama for the same reason that hoosabrat mentioned. I think he's a man of honor and Hilary doesn't seem all that trustworthy.

Thanks for the Barrowman upload! I so hope they let him sing on Torchwood one day. He's got a great voice.

I'm an Obama girl because he has a clear, concise plan of where he wants to take our country. That doesn't involve National Healthcare, my own personal sticking point.

Additionally, as a member of America's so-called "ambivalent youth," I was pretty insulted when Hillary's campaign manager said "our people look like caucus-goers, [Obama's] look like Facebook." Yes: young people have a tendency to not vote, but don't you want to change that...instead of attacking them. Also, way to solidify the voter choice of those of us who will head to the polls.

Nice to know that other people see this as more than a "women vote for the woman" and "black people vote for the black man."

I'm not a registered Democrat; I'm an Independent, so whoever gets the Democratic Nom. will probably be the person I vote for.

I've been saying for awhile now that we will have an african-american man for a president long before we have a woman of any color for president. [shrugs.] It's just this cynical old feminist's opinion of The Great American Public.

Personally, I'm not happy with ANY of the candidates, regardless of their party. I like McCain as a person, but he's diametrically opposed to my political philosophy. I like Hillary, but I don't trust her. I have so-so feelings about Obama. [shrugs.]

I saw the words "john barrowman" and "every little thing she does is magic" and almost died.
Thank you for this!

edited because I just listened to that song and it's amazing! Where did you find it? How can I get more? ;)

I'm still wavering between H&O, but I will never understand how or why she forgave him. He was a serial cheater. It's just mind-boggling. I just want to shake Bill every time I see him. I'll never get him. Ever.

I've actually met Hillary, many years ago, before she got elected (it was actually at a small fundraiser during her Senate campaign) and I think she comes across MUCH better in smaller groups, and one-on-one, than she does to the public at large. She's your classic brainiac who never really mastered the ability to temper her obvious intelligence with charm, or charisma, to get other people excited about her causes without feeling like they've been hit over the head. (that's what she's got Bill for)

That said, I'm still voting for Obama, because I think he's more electable. On most of the issues, he and Hillary are a wash.
