Debates and TV

Forced to watch the debate. Ugh. I really don't care.

And since I have new people on the flist, I'll give some explanations and be bit more long winded than usual. And more political than usual.

I know about both candidates from the last presidential election. Yes, I know that sounds silly. But Obama was going to be the next presidential candidate for Democrats back in 2004. They'd called him that. I can claim that because I went to rallies and was overall extremely active. I think I even made some phone calls for Kerry that year. Wow. I was so industrious! But already Obama was being touted as the next one.

And McCain is a republicrat. He's not conservative enough for the conservatives and he's not liberal enough for the liberals. Plus he has Palin.

That said, I thought McCain did a better job of staying on topic than Obama. Or at least bringing the facts. He gets old man points from me and I know that's not fair, but it's true. So he stretched Down Syndrome into also knowing what Autism was like. Apparently one birth defect is the same as the next. But he didn't mean that women's health is unimportant. He meant that people have stretched the woman's health concern to allow nearly these late-term abortions. Late-term abortion should be reserved for when the woman's health is in danger IE she will die if she carries the baby to term. That was his point.

I dislike Obama because he wants to do a lot of things with which I disagree. I dislike McCain less because he wants to do some of the things I like, but also some things I don't like.

Enough about that. I was mostly bored and it didn't change my mind. Unlike what all of the news networks would have you believe.
