Jen, the fiance and baby mama of my gloriously awesome friend Bobby, turned 21 yesterday! She had planned to celebrate this weekend, but they went out last night too and needed a last minute baby-sitter. Sooo me and Savannah had great fun. Only one of us spit up, and only one of us needed a diaper change. I suppose that's good news. She was an absolute angel. And a hardcore burper. That kid can really let one out.

I got paid for baby-sitting, which was refused twice and ridiculously unnecessary. So Jen's getting more for her birthday now. What do 21 year old girls like? I forget... I just know I don't want to get her something for her baby. I bet she's darn sick of that.

I was watching Idol last night. I've decided I really love the second-to-last guy (Daydream guy with the dreads) and the last guy (the Australian one). I also like David Archuleta (the young one with the vocal issue from a few years back) but I didn't get to see him. And I didn't vote at all. Tonight, the girls! Here's for getting out of class early, though it's getting DVRd anyway.

Speaking of class, I took my next test in my Western Civ class last night. Fairly sure I knocked out another high A. (EDIT: I got 100)

----

I love Obama, and it seems like the rest of the country is following suit. 10 straight victories! I am proud to be a supporter of such a fantastic candidate. I am hungry for a change.

21 year olds typically like booze. That may not be a good choice if she's breastfeeding. I think cute clothes or a good book could be nice.

Heh, yeah. No booze for her, even if she's going to (as she called it) "pump and dump." I don't know what size clothes, and I'm always reluctant to buy clothes for someone else. I should find out what she reads... thanks!

Nothing wrong with pumping and dumping, You just have to store spare milk ahead of time in case the kid gets hungry while you're still hungover.

Yay Obama!

Between Barrack Obama, a young black liberal, and John McCain, a much more moderate conservative than we've had in some time, it looks like we're practically assured change is on the way.

I remember you mentioning that McCain would be the only Republican you would consider voting for. Since it's pretty clear the race is going to be Obama v. McCain, is their ANY dillema at all, or are you set on Obama?

If it was Hillary / McCain, there would be an issue.

Obama is pretty much my absolute ideal candidate. On pretty much every single matter, and every single other thing that matters. So no, there's no issue of who I'm voting for whatsoever.

It's nice to know that even if Obama doesn't win the presidency, I don't necessarily dislike the other candidate.

ah, but that's the dirty trick of it all:
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1713490,00.html

"Republicans have pulled some dirty tricks before: Swift Boats, Watergate, you name it. But this time they have gone too far. In its desperate hunger for victory at any cost, the Republican Party is on the verge of choosing a presidential candidate, John McCain, who is widely regarded (everywhere except inside the Republican Party itself) as honest, courageous, likable and intelligent.

Have they no shame?"

I cannot BELIEVE you say you would vote for McCain over Hillary though. seriously? is it not about issues at all for you? He has no education plan, wants to overturn Roe v. Wade and is against gay marriage. He would appoint more conservative justices to the supreme court and would continue the war in Iraq indefinitely. and he may be more aware of reality than some Republicans regarding the environment and health care but compared to a Democrat he falls very very short.

I'm not saying I agree with all of his politics.

And I did NOT say I would vote for McCain over Hillary. I'm just saying it would be a much bigger issue than Obama vs McCain.


I really hate Hillary.

I thought about hypothetically voting for McCain over Hillary. But no; mostly for the reasons you point out. He votes the Republican line on abortion and gay rights, and he'd keep us in Iraq for a hundred years (his own statement).

The only thing that would possibly tip the scales would be Hillary coming out strongly for Guantanamo-type detention and torture, which seems highly unlikely.

well, for your sake, here's to hoping obama (if elected president, God forbid) brings about some good change. i don't bite. he's all talk, in my opinion. but if you believe he will do what he says he will do, that's awesome. like this:


MR. RUSSERT: But there seems to be an evolution in your thinking. This is what you told the Chicago Tribune last month: “Have you ruled out running for another office before your term is up?” Obama answer: “It’s not something I anticipate doing.” But when we talked back in November of ‘04 after your election I said, “There’s been enormous speculation about your political future. Will you serve your six-year term as United States senator from Illinois?” Obama: “Absolutely.”

SEN. OBAMA: I will serve out my full six-year term. You know, Tim, if you get asked enough, sooner or later you get weary and you start looking for new ways of saying things. But my thinking has not changed.

MR. RUSSERT: So you will not run for president or vice president in 2008?

SEN. OBAMA: I will not.



yup. he'll keep his promises.

trust me, i'm not happy with bush. i'm actually not happy with ANY republicans in office right now. i'm pissed off because there's apparently no such thing as a conservative in washington anymore.

don't worry, i'm just jealous because the only candidate that i was passionate about dropped out of the race a long time ago. now i have no one. NO ONE!!!! :'(

see, you just wish you could be lucky like me to have a candidate that is so perfect for you :-P

to be really honest though...i mean, it SUCKS. whenever i've gone to vote i've known that whoever i'm voting for, i really believe in and agree with (at least at the time). and this time around i can still vote for who i WANT to be president (fred, of course) by writing him in, which i WILL do...but then i know whoever gets elected, i'm screwed. because obviously, let's face it, although the write-in-fred-thompson movement is a pretty good size, there's no way it's going to be effective.

lately i'm sorry that i was ever involved in politics...lol. i'm becoming more and more pissed off with the direction of the government and the direction of the country...but it's like, what can i even do anymore? i'm trying to become more apathetic when it comes to politics, because if i don't, i know that in 2008 and 2009 and 2010 and so on, i'll just keep getting more and more pissed off and it will not be good. maybe ignorance IS bliss. haha. or maybe the world will just end soon so i don't even have to worry about it. if i'm lucky the latter will happen....i'm so horrible!

in the general election, would you end up voting for mccain (over obama or hillary), the lesser of the evils? Or would you write in Fred? Or just not vote at all? Sometimes you just have to choose the lesser of the two evils if you'd rather one candidate lose.

That said, write-in Fred. Gives my Obama a better chance.

haha. i just feel like if it's obama v. mccain....obama would win anyway. just because a lot of conservatives don't agree with mccain and would either vote third-party or write-in...or not vote at all. or vote for obama if they were really delusional. hehe kidding.

i hate to say it but i'm going to write in thompson. that's one reason it really, really sucks to not have a candidate you want to vote for. it's like, on one hand, i could vote for mccain. that would give obama or hillary less of a chance of winning. but on the other hand...i just can't stomach voting for mccain when i just do not agree with him. my conscience would drive me crazy for the next four years if i did that, lol.

if i had my way i wouldn't vote at all but i want to be able to bitch during the next four years so i'm gonna. :-)

I love your last sentence and agree with it so freaking much. And totally respect you for it.

Thanks for writing in Thompson :)
