That’s really it, just WOW!
The Phillies’ bats came alive in a real big way last night, as they blew the Rays out 10 to 2. Tonight’s game five, still in Philadelphia, could be the end of the Series!
It’s great to see Ryan Howard producing the way we know he can. And how amazing was that home run by Joe Blanton? It’s got be very demoralizing for the Rays to have the guy who’s striking them out hit one out of the park! (His first career home run, no less.)
On the political front, things continue to come unglued for John McCain and his Straight Talk Express. (Maybe it’s an oxymoron to call something an “Express” when it’s being piloted by mavericks. Ya gotta wonder how they steer the thing!)
Anyway, the Express seems to be running out of steam here in New Hampshire, where Obama leads in the polls by a growing margin. We certainly don’t want to become complacent, but as we enter the final days of the campaign, things are looking better and better.
Oh, and that other maverick? The one with the nifty clothes? She persists in ignoring her handlers, speaking out about things that, I am sure, make them cringe.
Most recently, she continued on the topic of her wardrobe, prompted by the View’s Elizabeth Hasselbeck — a deep thinker and astute political mind almost the equal of Palin (if you can imagine that).
I don’t know about you, but I was quite relieved to understand that the clothes don’t belong to Sarah, and are just part of the fakery that is the Republican campaign. Oh, and did you know that she gets her clothes at consignment shops? Yeah, right.
“Those clothes, they are not my property. Just like the lighting and the staging and everything else that the RNC purchased, I’m not taking them with me. I am back to wearing my own clothes from my favorite consignment shop in Anchorage, Alaska. You’d think – not that I would even have to address the issue because, as Elisabeth is suggesting, the double standard here it’s – gosh, we don’t even want to waste our time.”
Yes, please, stop wasting our time. It gets tiresome, doesn’t it?
