Random Rants

I realize posting links are a cheap way of updating my blog, but these articles say more than I can about what I'm thinking about these days. Apparently I missed the memo, our economy is doing FINE according to McCain. Well shit I feel so much better now.

And by the way, if any of you missed Tina Fey's impression of Palin, you're missing out, because she was brilliant.

And also, in case some of you women out there take birth control for disabling cramps as I did for many years, under the health care system that John McCain and Palin would endorse, your insurance company would not be required to cover those pills. However, if your husband or partner needs/wants Viagra or Rogaine, they would be able to get these covered. This is only one of the major reasons I get crazy when I hear women say they are going to vote for Palin because she's a woman. I mean how scary to hear, "Well golly, I'll vote for Sarah Palin because she's just like me, she's from a small town, I'm from a small town, she has tits, I have tits, what's not to like? I think I'll vote for her."

And if some of you think that McCain will be the big grand different "change" that we need in Washington, you should check out this...
McCain for Change?

It is mind boggling, isn't it? I have to step away from the election talk a bit because it is making me crazy and I just don't have the mental and emotional space for it.

Allyson informed me tonight that in the town of Wasilla, Alaska, where Palin was mayor, her administration fought to have rape victims pay up to a $1000 fee for the forensic exam and evidence collection.

Everywhere else this is a free service (ya think!?).

Makes you wonder!

Frankly, I am voting this year ONLY because of the local elections. Let's face it, where I live my vote doesn't really count in the presidential election. And when it comes to issues, neither candidate gives me much to thrill over.
