Just a few random thoughts…
Rod Blagojevichis all set to appear on a reality show, provided a federal judge gives permission. Blago’s gone down in the world—but not as far down as the people who watch that show. (For the record, it’s called "I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here!", in case you want to check it out). How boring must your life be if you find watching Rod Blagojevich the most interesting thing you can do?
Governor Rick Perry of Texas suggested that Texas could secede from the Union if it wanted to. Didn’t we fight a war about that issue? I know he wanted to rally the base, but I think he could have chosen a less controversial way of doing so.
The big mega-Tea Party was today. Meh.
How did Joe Biden donate less than two thousand dollars out of over $250,000 earned to charity? Far be it for me to criticize him for greediness (let he who is without sin…), but honestly, you’d expect him to donate at least one percent to charity.
Barack Obama hasn’t been able to find a new church yet. It must be harder to find another church run by a racist lunatic than he thought. Given that Obama claims to be quite religious, it’s surprising that he hasn’t attended church even once since becoming president.
Meghan McCain has been spending her time since the campaign ended trying to make a name for herself as a conservative pundit. She bills herself as a reformer trying to woo younger voters, but unfortunately she has spent most of her time sparring with Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter. Coulter should be attacked as often as possible, but given that McCain only joined the GOP after her father starting running for president, I’m not sure she’s the best person to reinvent the party.
Also, McCain seems sensitive about the lack of younger voters who are Republicans. Frankly, I wouldn’t spend too much time worrying about them—young people probably won’t start voting Republican in very large numbers anytime soon. I’m reminded of Churchill’s quote: “Anyone who is twenty and not a liberal has no heart; anyone who is forty and not a conservative has no brains.”
I’m nineteen. What does that say about me?
I know that my blogging hasn’t been very good over the last few weeks. What can I say—I’m really busy, I’m taking 19 credit hours this semester (I’m a college student, if you didn’t know), and I’m getting close to finals. I’ll keep blogging, but I probably won’t hit my target of five posts per week. I know that it’s boring reading a blog that isn’t update often, but I’ll try to at least make the posts I do get done quality posts.
