New Post

I don't feel like blogging, if you hadn't noticed. It's a little bit of not having any good stories, a little bit of already telling my one good story per week to the two people I talk to, and a lot of feeling Seasonal Affective right now. I still feel like I just got back from a great vacation and now I'm unhappy because I can't go on vacation again for a while.

But I'll give you two thoughts on politics, which is a popular topic right now.
My first observation is that all the candidates are talking about change:


My second observation is that on January 3rd the voters of Iowa decided that Obama and Huckabee were the two best candidates. Then, less than a week later, voters in New Hampshire decided that Clinton and McCain were the two best. I don't take this to mean that there are differences between Iowa and New Hampshire or that the candidates have clarified or improved their positions. Since most Americans can't find either state on a map, the obvious conclusion is that they're the same. Thus, the changing opinion on candidates means that Americans are flip-floppers, that ALL Americans (because the states are indistinguishable) are therefore flip-floppers, and come this fall I'm not going to vote for a flip-flopping American. QED.

I don't really think that people in Iowa and New Hampshire are the same kind of people.... also there is very strong evidence that the Dems switched the vote count of electronic vote machines to pick Clinton over Obama...

I try to shy away from conspiracy theories, but this one has some very strong evidence.

Iowa and New Hampshire rarely pick the same candidates. And just from living there for a couple of years, I have to say that NH is the coolest state for politics. And drinking.

OS- Isn't Kansas the capital of Iowa? But you're saying that the computers did the flip-flopping? That settles it, I'm not voting for a computer either!

Z- I'm pretty sure New Hampshire is part of Canada, so I don't even know why we're even letting them vote. Unless it's just practice for them to overthrow the monarchy.

That SNL bit was the first thing I thought of after I watched the "change" debate. I almost blogged it. You win.

NH is Canadian in weather only.

I haven't heard too much more about the computer flipping the election results... but it really need to be looked into.

I too would not vote for a computer. Maybe a robot though.

LOL! Yeah, I feel the same way.

Whenever I find out if I'm going to be in TX, I'll let you know. I should know in plenty of time.
