just thinkin'

... about how surreal it would be to be George Bush, and have all these really smart people thinking about you SO MUCH, burning so many calories over you, writing so many words. And how surreal it is that he's hearing so little of the wisdom flying through the air at him.

Government of the people, by the ... what? Idiots? Psychopaths? ... for lining a few folks' pockets.

It's scary. But not nearly as scary as what we don't know yet.

I'll be watching Obama. Relative lack of experience, maybe, but he seems to have both a brain and a heart. A letter writer on Salon.com made a comment about how Clinton (I am hating that she's the only one perpetually called by her first name -- yes, I understand the confusion re. the other Clinton, but it's still this thing where women get referred to in text by their first names or as Mrs. [husband's first name] [husband's last name], and it annoys me. I keep wanting to call her Rodham), every time she's asked a politically loaded question, seems to have an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other, counseling her as to which answer will preserve electability.

I am so done with politics. And so addicted to them -- it's like watching a train wreck.

Obama, at least, seems like something new. And he can write.

I totally agree with you about the Hillary thing. And yet I find myself slipping into first name jargon with her -- could it be similar to using "W" for Bush? I intentionaly try to say "Sen. Clinton." Obama is great. Just great. But maybe naive?
