I'm starting this Friday post. I'm not sure where it is going to take me. I've been really edgy today, so ready for the work week to be over. I have no real plans for the weekend, but I just wanted to get started enjoying I suppose.
I watched the debate last night, it was quite painful. If I heard the word "Maverick" (pronounced Meeyaaverik) one more time, I think I might have gone all "Elvis" on their ass and shot the t.v. What is with her?? Geez. I just googled the word "Maverick", and as I guessed, a news article about her pulled up first. The next thing I saw was that the definition of Maverick from Wikipedia: "A maverick is an unbranded range animal, especially a motherless calf; it can also mean a person who thinks independently; a lone dissenter; a non-conformist or rebel. The word first arose in mid-19th century America from Samuel Augustus Maverick, a Texas politician with a large ranch full of unbranded cattle."
I like the first one. hehe
I'm sorry, I know my Mother loves Palin, but I can't stand that woman. She's about original as Microsoft, and from what it appears to me, she must have been coached into over-time about this week's debate. After the Couric fiasco, they probably took her in and had her memorize paragraphs of topics, and told her to stick to the agenda. That maybe a reason that she NEVER answers a question directly, but frequently diverts off into no-man's land stepping around the issue, and resorting back to attacks on the opponent's ticket. In my opinion, it seemed that Biden was holding back, and probably with good reason. He couldn't just full-force attack the woman, that would've looked bad. I think he did a pretty good job, considering, and Palin seemed to start off a little stronger, and fizz out more towards the end, while Biden seemed a bit more "up" as he went along. I don't usually watch political things, but I've been trying to get myself as informed as possible, so I could decide which way my 'useless' vote was going to go. Does it ever really matter?
I'll be back later to rant and rave some more... Stay tuned, or come back if you feel bored enough to hang with me.
