McCain and Romney Oh Yeah, That’s What We Need
I've tried to stay away from blogging about matters that seem to be here today and gone tomorrow. The main reason for this of course is that news, celebrities, etc. change faster than I change my hair so if you put it out there on the worldwide web, no doubt some yahoo will email you three years later telling you that you're wrong (and in most cases by then they've discovered that Lance Bass really is interesting or something). At any rate, this is why I'm trying to temper my temper tantrums with timeless things like how long it takes to get a cup of coffee at a Starbucks, etc. However, with all that said I find that I cannot hold my tongue on the matter of McCain and Romney oh yeah, that's what we need - Don't Get Me Started!
I saw something online that said Romney was a strong candidate to be McCain's Vice Presidential candidate. Well, I've been over Romney since he wanted to be president. To me he looks way too much like Guy Smiley from Sesame Street, you know the game show host - and can we really trust Muppets to run the country? I think not. Meanwhile, he's Mormon. Yes, I've known plenty a Mormon in my day and to use the cliché - some of them were even close friends but come on, with the government's inability to separate church from state as it is, do we really want a guy in office who wants to send our youth door to door in white shirts and black ties, tithe 10% to the church and fill the White House pantry as if it was a panic room? Let me speak for me - no, I don't.
Meanwhile I've had trouble looking at Bush for all these years, do you really expect me to look at the new comb over version of him in McCain? Come on, say what you want but let's face it - McCain looks like one of those hairless cats - he's all one color. He's a combination of that and when Danny Devito played "Penguin" in the Batman movie. Am I saying that politicians need to be attractive? You bet your ass! Because as Marilyn Monroe says in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, "You don't marry her just because she's pretty but my goodness, doesn't it help?" Time and time again history has shown that the pretty people get more - more money at their job, more of people's attention and I'm sure even more than any of us not so pretty people will ever know. So when it comes to the President, pretty counts.
I know some are appalled by what they just read and are going to tell me how he was a prisoner, etc. and all I have to say to that is that we've all been prisoners too...for eight years. Come on look at this war that we're spending a zillion dollars on and getting nothing in return - no oil, no respect and no help for the kids fighting it once they get home. Great job everyone. When will we get wise?
And while I'm at it - everyone needs to lay off Michelle Obama. I'm sorry that she isn't a mealy mouthed wannabe Stepford wife several years younger than her husband like that McCain blonde dudshell. I'm sorry that it frightens people that there may be an educated woman in the White House (and yes, that includes the tons of women in this country who just don't seem to get it). Oh sure, women can be educated as long as they stay out of politics and are like Oprah, funding projects (that incidentally the government should be doing - like her New Orleans work) and having a book club.
Well, as I'm writing this I know that there are a lot of people who are going to go into those voting booths and vote for McCain because let's face it, no one likes change and with McCain you know you're getting a typical white guy politician which is what we're all used to at this point. But come on kids, is this working for us? And is what McCain's offering all that different from Bush? And most importantly, do you think that Romney is going to somehow make McCain more attractive by association? I think not. Nope the Mormon and the hairless George W. are not for me and they shouldn't be for you either. McCain and Romney oh yeah, that's what we need - Don't Get Me Started!
