Arizona, I Feel Your Pain

I’m mulling Boltgirl’s comment about registering with the GOP in Arizona to vote for the unpalatable Johnny M in order to avoid the even MORE gustatorially offensive Johnny H.  That’s a terrible choice to have to make … but reminiscent of life here in NH much of the time.  It had gotten marginally better for a wee bit, but the Dems here tend to be well right of the GOP in most states (except on some social issues, where flinty Granite-Staters do gravitate toward the Libertarian end of the spectrum much of the time).

Anyway … I don’t think I could bring myself to vote for McCain … whose raw and rudderless ambition uncorked Sarah P (picture “I Dream of Jeannie”) and her equally raw and rudderless ambition.  (And good grief – what’s with that leather jacket?  Wonder what kind of boots she has on!)  Interesting comment I read on the linked post, too …

Dear Sarah and Tahd,

Please stay home and take care of your children. Maybe one of your next three children will figure out how to get a high school diploma. Dontcha think in the year 2010 it’s unacceptable to be 0 for 2 in that category? I wonder why Children’s Services of Alaska hasn’t visited the Palin home.

Family values, indeed.  And JD?  I love the wee glimpse of his repressed sexual fantasies that the Massachusetts Gay Marriage Law gave us all back in ’09.  Marrying your horse, eh?  Why did that particular example spring to mind, old JD?  As one commenter posted … WILBBBUUURRRRRRRR!!


In other news … happy to see Tennessee move on after an inspiring game vs. Ohio.  POTUS remains at the top of the heap in our little bracket … followed by ddymski and reades (in a tie) … with murraydewd right behind and boyski staying close.  In the final stages, there’s gonna be lots of shifting, though, as the folks who have Kansas, Ohio State, etc. all drop away.  I can’t even begin to guess who’ll be at the top of the heap when all’s said and done.

Meanwhile, the women start up again today … AND the USWNT is gearing up for two matches against Mexico … both of which look like they will be on TV.  Unbelievable!

    I woke up this morning to that inane shot of Mm. Palin on the front page of the paper, leather jacket–with zippers! the paper breathlessly reported–and both index fingers in the air. I would love to report that I then muttered f*ck me and started drinking heavily, but no.

    Hayworth looks like nothing else to me so much as a Claymation version of George Bush gone horribly wrong. Brrrrr.

    I don’t know what I’m going to do. Both options are too awful to contemplate for long.


So, what do you think?
