What I Want

I follow politics. I'm interested in the election. But I've been a little reluctant to write about it here because I figured I'd either be preaching to the choir or pouring gas on a fire. Neither is a good idea.

Loved Michelle's post about focusing attention on what we want rather than what we're against.

But the last straw just broke this Campbell*'s back. Broke it clean. In this interview, McCain asserts that Palin "knows more about energy than probably anybody else in the Unites States."

*flames rising in brain*

Okay. Okay. Reframing here. Give me a minute.

What I want is a president who recognizes truth when he (or she) meets it in a crowd.

Wow, I hadn't heard that one. Yikes.

I finally watched Palin's interview on 20/20, and it made me feel pretty embarrassed for our country.

I think real dialog about this stuff is so important. Palin reminds me of people I have known. People I'd rather start a dialog with than antagonize. Hopefully we can have a respectful dialog...

Makes you understand why Republicans undermine public education. A smart electorate wouldn't bite on this load of crap.

I still think Obama will win this thing. But the fact that it's so close is testament to how easily misled the public is.

One can practically see Karl Rove in the rafters pulling the strings.

How can someone who has been governor of the least populous state in the Union for less than a full term be qualified to run this country on any level?

Whomever says that John McCain has not sold out is sorely underestimating the power of Karl Rove and his ilk.

I'm trying with all my might to focus on what I want from this election. I'm trying so hard not to spontaneously combust at the idea that one woman is as good as another to be in the White House. I know where my passport is. . . .
