The Political Comedy tour

I know some of you were waiting for me to post on this yesterday but 1) I had too much work to do and 2) I pretty much felt like hammered shit yesterday. Today I feel like hammered shit with a fever. Seriously, I think I have a fever. This morning I was thinking maybe a sinus infection. Now I'm just hoping it's not the flue. Not that I mind a few days off work, it's just damned inconvenint right now. I'm starting a new PDF presentation for the CD workbook on one of our texts and I have meetings up the wazoo the next few days. I know, I'll show up and make everyone else sick so we are all out of commission for a week. Kidding.

OK, the debate. All day Tuesday, I kept thinking it was Wednesday and wondered if the debate was going to pre-empt LOST or not. Because now you know I'm hooked on this stupid show. Everyone see the attack of the polar bear last week? Well they said it was a polar bear anyway. The part of it they showed looked to me like a giant sloth but that's just me. And why the hell if they were starving didn't they cut the damned thing up for meat? Who agrees with me that the big monster is a Tyranosaurus Rex? Hey, if they've got polar bears on a tropical island, why not a Rex? Personally I'm hoping it turns into a Land of the Lost situation. I really want to see some Slestak with some power crystals. And who besides me thinks it's odd that they are trying to climb a peak so they can save their batteries on the transponder and still get a message out, but they pick up anotehr transponder signal from there on the island that has been going on for 16 years? Are we supposed to believe the batteries they had in 1988 were so much better than the ones now? Hell, the batteries I had in 1988 wouldn't even power my boom box for more than 2 days much less a transponder for 16 years. And wouldn't it be nice if the French chick on the transponder message would have said what it was that killed everyone rather than being cryptic about it?

Now why did I make this post? Oh yeah, the debate. Well we hacve a couple of fiesty little fellows there now don't we? At one point Cheney gave Edwards this look like, "You might as well go cut me a willow switch boy because I'm about to whoop your ass!" I know that look because my dad gave it to me quite often when I was a little kid. I know opinions are equally divided but I think Cheney really won the debate. To me, he came across as the voice of experience. Edwards got confused a little too much and the whole, "Simon Says give me a statement about why you should be veep without naming your boss" thing just flusterd the poor guy. And Edwards can't follow simple instructions for shit. It's no wonder Kerry beat him in the primaries. Did I not hear the moderator tell both of them from the start that they couldn't direct statements at each other?

It wasn't five minutes into the debate before Edwards is accusing Cheney of distorting the truth. And what was up with him not letting the moderator give the instruction to speak before he started a rebuttal? Even in my high school debate club, they would have kicked him out at that point.

I was really hoping Cheney would reach across and strangle Edwards at one point. Not that I favor either one of them. It just would have made it more interesting. This debate wasn't nearly as funny as the last one so I'm glad it will be the last chance for these jokers. I'm really looking forward to the town hall meeting tomorrow night. If I didn't feel like hammered shit with a fever I might have tried to get tickets to this one.

I didn't see the first episode of Lost, and I had to record the second one because of my oath of fealty to Smallville. But yeah, you're right...it is a good show.

When the heck does Smallville come on anymore? I've missed so much I need to catch up with the wonder of DVDs.

Wednesday nights at 8. Directly opposite "Lost", which sucks total ass. I mean, the show "Lost" doesn't suck total ass. It sucks total ass that it's directly opposite Smallville.

Like I said. Vote for Miss Piggy. Kermit would make a great first Frog.
