I never realized how politics worked in the states while we lived overseas. Now I know. With all the polling phone calls, folks at the door, and TV commercials it’s almost continual. Now I don’t mind talking to someone, but the robocalls get hung up on. I’m not going to give any information to a machine. That’s plain silly. We’ve had two of the local politicians come to the door looking for a vote. My wife listened to one, and the other wasn’t that interesting and I was courteous, but sent him on his way. Well, that and he was here at 9 in the morning. That’s just not right. We’re retired, and don’t like to be bothered early. 😉

I’ll be so glad when the election is over. All the BS in the commercials is really getting old. You can’t watch a show without being bombarded with it. I guess it’s a way to get the word out, but all the snickering is silly. State your case. Don’t try to stick it to your opponent. It doesn’t work for me, and I doubt it works for others.

Palin Quits!

I’ve been reading about Gov. Palin stepping down as governor of Alaska. I’m amazed that this happened. Then again, not really. How the folks in Alaska ever elected her is beyond me. But then again, I don’t live there so what do I know.

What I do know is that this might or might not be good news. A few reports state that she is leaving politics for good. I find that hard to believe but who knows. Other reports state that she is looking ahead to helping the candidates in 2010 and then running for president in 2012. Now that is worrisome. The Republicans are in bad enough shape as it is and she is going to try to help? She’s one of the big reasons that they are in as bad as shape as they are.

About the funniest posts I did read though was on Huffington Post and the person said “some pit bull she turned out to be”. I almost feel off my chair when I read that. I guess it goes to show you just how good of a hockey mom she was.

Ya betcha.. 😉
