This Shilly-Shallying is Absurd!

I interrupted my evening of revisiting my lines from "The Important of Being Ernest" to watch the third Presidential debate. Even though I won't be voting (because I’m dead) I do like to keep up with these things. The Senator from Illinois' name is Barack Obama and his wife's name is Michelle Obama. If you don't know, even at this stage, it's better to ask than remain ignorant.

Senator Obama, Senator McCain, Lily Ledbetter - THE EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT WAS NEVER PASSED IN THE UNITED STATES.

I wonder where they got those lovely water glasses?

Troops to Teachers - Just because it employs triple alliteration doesn't make it a good idea. (PTSD + children? See where I'm going with this?) I do want to add that even though Senator McCain said "with no evaluations or certification" - the Ed.gov site does work to get the soldier’s certificate, qualifications and licenses - which makes me feel a little better.)

I learned a new phrase "The Great Society." (I am not originally from this country.)

At least no one talked about cutting funds to the Arts when talking about trimming corners.

The only Joe I want any follow up on is Senator Joe Biden.

47 MILLION AMERICANS ARE WITHOUT HEALTH INSURANCE.

THE UNITED STATES SPENDS MORE MONEY PER CAPITA ON EDUCATION THAN ANY OTHER NATION.

My favorite quote:

Senator Obama - "I don't think America's youth is a special interest group."

Well the kettle is boiling, so I must be off. I think a nice oolong ought to pick me up.

As always,

Edith Evans


P.S. Please excuse my previous blog where I misspelled traveled as traveled. Thank you.

I’ve got a headache…give me a third term abortion

In the third and final (thank goddess) debate, John McCain addressed the issue of abortion. He used his fingers to put quotes around the words -- health of the mother -- stating emphatically that the “ ‘health of the mother’ is stretched by pro-abortionists to mean just about anything.” Just about anything? Just about ANYTHING? Are you saying that a pregnant woman with a whopper of a head ache in her third trimester would seriously consider Advil, acupuncture and abortion on the same list of remedies? What a sexist insult. My health and the health of every women in America, including during pregnancy, should be a concern for anyone running for president. It does not belong between McCain’s or anyone elses fingers. Senator McCain, I “think” you just “threw away” all those “Hillary” votes you were “counting” on.

WHY I HATE HER

This is just a little game I play with myself when I have to get something off my chest. If I were alive today, would I have this person over for tea???

Why I hate her:

She kills animals
She hunts animals
She is not well traveled (abroad)
She promotes ordinariness in government leaders
She is good at American rhetoric (see above)
My 'intelligent' Republican friends have researched their asses off to find a way to come out in support of her
She's not Hillary Clinton
She's not Tina Fey
She's not even Margaret Thatcher

Why I like her:

She's ambitious

So, no, no, no, I would not have her over for tea, I would not offer her a scone, I would not offer her a biscuit. I wouldn't wet one tea leaf in my house or dressing room for her.

Drinking alone,
