It’s official. The election season is in full swing, with two caucuses (Iowa and Wyoming) behind us and one right in front of us (New Hampshire).
A lot of people are very excited that Barack Obama has pulled an early lead ahead of John Edwards and Hillary Clinton. And it looks like Obama is seeing a nice boost or surge, if you will, from this early election season victory.
Despite all the endorsements of candidates like Obama, Edwards, Kucinich and even Ron Paul, from many of my favorite bloggers, I’m still sitting this current season out. I’m not on the fence about any candidate. In fact, I’m inside my “gated community” looking out to see which of these candidates is going to really rise up and impress me enough to say “Vote for that guy…or gal…”. Even my husband has his favorite (Ron Paul), but despite being married to an avowed and proud Paul supporter, I’m not sold on any of the likely or even the second tier candidates. There are most definitely candidates that would ONLY get my vote in a rigged election *cough*HuckaRoMcCain*cough*, but right now I’m sticking with “N.O.T.A.” (none of the above).
Because I’m feeling kind of overwhelmed by all the press coverage of the candidates and the caucuses and primaries and totally underwhelmed by most of the candidates I found this youtube that pretty much expresses how this time of election season makes me feel: Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb (1980)
Following along with me as I tell you how I feel about today’s ten posts in the Round-Up:
1: Spring must be on it’s way because I’m noticing the political closet (especially the Republican wardrobe) is full of XL flip-flops.
2: “I Spy” a possible “Dream Team” for Election 2008.
3: Musharraf is blaming the victim for her own assassination.
4: Another reason Dizzy is glad that she no longer subscribes to print newspapers.
5: Just in time to take the attention off of the deplorable economy and the presidential contenders, here comes a new Al Qaeda video.
6: Polls show that, in New Hampshire, Clinton should maybe be concerned about Obama’s boost from Iowa.
7: The Supreme Court will be looking into whether there is a “more humane” way to kill death row inmates.
8: Bill O’Reilly makes an ass of himself…and NOT on Fox News!
9: Former presidential contender, George McGovern, calls for the impeachment of both Bush and Cheney.
10: Since transgendered woman was not born with breasts, Catholic Hospital refuses to allow breast augmentation surgery. But, if she were a woman born with breasts delivered by “God”, then it’s OK.
Speaking of boobs…
I’ll be glad when the caucuses and primaries are over.
