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.

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.
