The Topic That Shall Not Be Named

I don't blog about the "P" word (rhymes with "molitics"), but I will tell you a few things--

1. I will be one happy camper by November 5. In fact, it just can't come soon enough for me. Yes, this (U.S.) election is important. Yes, I exercise my right to vote and proud to do so. BUT... I cannot bear one more political advertisement- tv, radio, web page, road signs, or otherwise. That screaming you hear is me tearing out my hair.

2. I wish someone would bail me out for 700 billion. I'm pretty sure I would go to a spa.

3. Why, if we allow people to run for president outside of the Democrat and Republican parties do we NOT include them in the debates? Are they not important? Were they even invited? I would love to have seen debates including Ralph and T. Boone and Ron... Stephen Colbert should have been the moderator.

4. What I hate the most about "molitics?" People who disagree and can't get over disagreeing. Can we agree to disagree? NO. Apparently, only one side can be right. If you're a donkey, you think elephants are old-fashioned, out of touch, greedy, and WRONG. If you're an elephant, you think donkeys are tree-huggers, irresponsible spenders, bleeding hearts, and WRONG. Guess what? You're all right, and you're all wrong. AND... if you're going to comment (which I invite you to do), don't try to convince me one way or the other. It. Won't. Work.

5. I'm moving to the moon and starting my own republic. The Republic of Grumpy. If you want to join me, that's great. If you get too jerky or stupid, I'm sending you back. So, I guess it's not really a republic. It's more like a monarchy. We'll take turns being queen or king, though. Kthxbai.

So you are a member of the Grumplican party? Ha.

I also get frustrated with politics. I have my views, and you have yours, and we may disagree, but I don't understand why we can't, as you said, agree to disagree. If you say you like shrimp and I say I don't, it doesn't turn into nasty words being spouted back and forth. We just disagree. :)

I'd totally move to the Republic of Grumpy.

Oh, she's here! yay!

Ok, so, I'm TOTALLY into this election. I'm not totally anti-Republican, I'm not--I even started out really admiring John McCain and I'm quite happy to give people credit for good policies, whichever party they may belong to because, really, why wouldn't you? No one party or candidate is all good or all bad (although... there's a woman from Alaska who's pushing it ;-) ) But it's obvious where my heart lies. I'm just disgusted I can't vote. Roll on, November 4th, there's a Paris bar stool shaped especially for my a@@ and I'll be filling it!!

I totally agree with you. There are some things I like democratically and some things I like republicanally. But people who try to thrust their opinions on me? I do not like them. At all. And I agree about the third party candidates. Give us some more options to work with!!

I could not agree with you more! Look, we just agreed to AGREE!

Anyone who wants to be the president is whacked in the head and I can not get beyond that. I hope my whacked in the head guy wins though!

I will move with you to the moon if the other guy wins! I'm good at grumpy.
Cheers,
Tracey

3car: I'm totally a moderate and subscribe to neither party. But I would be happy to start a Grumplican party-- except it sounds too much like that other one. How about the Grumpertarian Party? haha

sparkling: and you'd totally be welcome!

gabrielle: my blog attendance is lame, isn't it? :-( As sad as it is that you cannot vote in our election, it's equally... no definitely sadder that I can't sit on a Paris barstool to watch it all unfold.

jen: isn't it sad how we've become the us vs them people? ugh

Tracey: how funny! someone on the radio said the exact same thing this morning about being whacked in the head to want that job! ;-)

I have been saying for years I wanted to buy an island and have my own country. Lizland. The closest I've come is my blog. Heh.

And I am certain that Lizland is a fabulous place. Maybe my moon citizens and I will come visit you. :-)
