Velvet and I watched the debate together last night.
Over all, I have to say I'd rather have watched something else - like tonight's South Park premier, but it wasn't on. We agreed that any undecided voter would have come away with this information:
McCain = Old
Obama = Young
I stopped listening to both of them because they are repeating themselves. Most likely, this repetition is the same reason I quit paying attention to politics years ago. For me, this year is sort of like tuning in on a few games of the World Series.
The Artist from the South of France has worked in advertising for many years and says that the Republicans are generally stronger in the marketing department because they stick to a very simple message.
McCain looked like an old grouch when he said that most people in that room hadn't heard of Fannie or Freddie until the last week. That was bullshit because anyone who has ever bought a home knows about Fannie and Freddie. We may not know all the details - but that was a very tacky thing to say.
He's always been grumpy and tacky, and I'm sorry about the POW camp and everything, but he walks like he's got a stick up his ass. It's very unattractive. That Pat Robertson said Obama looked presidential and McCain didn't is reason to be hopeful. Somebody said Obama was blessed with a great smile so that he looked debonair under attack. We all know appearances count for a lot in American politics. I wish Cary Grant were president. Hell, I wish Cary Grant were my house boy.
I probably will see The Artist from the South of France again after all, though. I'm running out of weed, and this is no time in America's history to be without weed. Waiting to see just who turns out at the polls on Nov. 4 is going a high anxiety activity.
