This isn't one of the best years for presidential candidates, but then again, has there ever been a good year? I wasn't impressed by either candidate last night, but depending on who you read or which news station you listen to (liberal or conservative), each political position's candidate won. I'm continually astounded how each side of the ticket maintains one blind eye to the realities of these two assholes. It's either experience and the wisdom that comes from it (republican view) or we need change and we have a messiah (democratic view).
Personally, I think they both say exactly what you need and want to hear, knowing full well that they'll say anything to get elected. No matter which candidate wins, there won't be a damned thing accomplished unless Congress decides to work as a team.
It's Hump Day and I'm going on field trip to AREA 51 and have a few cocktails with my pals. With the European and Asian economies in the same situation that the United States currently is, I'm quite sure that tonight will find a lot of people having a few themselves.
In an unrelated incident, President Bush has been advised by his staff that three Brazilian soldiers were killed today in front of the U. S. embassy in Brazil. Visibly upset, he turned to vice president Dick Cheney and asked, "Just exactly how many is a brazillion?"

Picture Of The Day The boredom of last night's presidential town hall meeting irritated me enough to put my thoughts together to create a picture. Rather than be a hot spirited debate, complete with name calling, hair pulling and tobacco spitting, it turned out to be just a good ole boy style bar-b-cue at some backwoods truckstop.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming
Recently while going through an airport during one of his many trips, President Bush encountered a man with long hair, wearing a white robe and sandals, holding a staff. President Bush went up to the man and said, "Aren't you Moses? " The man never answered but just kept staring ahead. Again the President said, "Moses! " in a loud voice. The man just kept staring ahead, never answering the president.
Soon a secret service agent came along and President Bush grabbed him and said, "Doesn't this man look like Moses to you? " The secret service agent agreed with the President. Well," said the President, "Every time I say his name, he just keeps staring ahead and refuses to speak. Watch!" Again, the President yelled, "Moses! " and again the man stared ahead.
The secret service man went up to the man in the white robe and whispered, "You look just like Moses. Are you Moses?" The man leaned over and whispered, "Yes, I am Moses. But the last time I talked to a bush, I spent 40 years wandering in the desert!"
That's it for today my little short shorts. More tomorrow.
