Whether they’re on my flist or not! 9-)
I listened for a little, when I wasn’t cursing the computer out. I got the newsletter labels printed (eventually) and turned everything off, including the TV.
For Christmas this year, my SiL gave me a quote a day calendar: The George W. Bush Out of Office Countdown.
Three gems I’ve tacked to my board at work:
“I’ve been to war. I’ve raised twins. If I had a choice, I’d rather go to war.”
— Charleston, WV, January 27, 2002
“See, one of the interesting things in the Oval Office–I love to bring people into the Oval Office–right around the corner from here–and say, this is where I office, but I want you to know the office is always bigger than the person.”
— Washington DC, January, 2004
“We thought long and hard about what to propose. We proposed a bold initiative, an initiative that takes equities out of the system so people are treated fairly.”
— Lee’s Summit, Missouri, January 2007
And this is the man who’s running our country.
357 Days Left:
“The war on terror involves Saddam Hussein because of the nature of Saddam Hussein, the history of Saddam Hussein, and his willingness to terrorize himself.”
— Grand Rapids, MI, January 29, 2003
My favorite feature of the calendar: GW in the bottom section, walking and waving. He’s at the far left of the page right now. In February, he’ll move a little closer to the right. And a little closer in March…..
BTW: I’m still firmly on the fence about who to vote for in a week or so for the primary. I still really like what Edwards has to say, but if I cast a vote for him and Hillary becomes our candidate because of it, I’ll never forgive myself. It’s all about strategy. Edwards and Obama have the best chance of winning over both sides. If not Edwards, then Obama. Hillary will pull every deceased Republican out of the woodwork to vote this coming November, and we just can’t have that.
Super Tuesday can’t come fast enough. Time to winnow the field.
