Still Pissed at Pissed-Off Vaginas

In spite of my current inclination to only watch news in 5 or 10 minute bites before becoming extremely nauseous the convention sucked me in and I confess to spending the entire time glued to the coverage.....right down to checking the coverage on other channels during commercials.

Yes, yes, I know this was a political show calculated to elicit exactly this reaction, what can I say, it worked. For me anyway it worked at least in part because over and above the hoopla and theatrics and regardless of how much any opponents may hate it, it was a stunning moment in our collective history. If you grew up in this country and you ain't feeling it, you're already dead, stop reading, go get in your coffin and faggedaboutit.

'Nuff said.

Round two. Whoopee, McCain selects a woman to be his running mate. Now every woman who would rather "make a point" than use her brain can vote to take away womens right to choose and make both the NRA and oil companies ecstatic all at one shot. Have fun explaining that one to your granddaughters.

As a woman and the mother of two wonderful daughters and grandmother of two beloved granddaughters I have to congratulate Nevada Mojo for the coming up with the best description I've seen yet of what has kept me too disgusted to even bother to post these past few months: some womens' "sense of vagina entitlement". Clinton wasn't "entitled" to win because she has a vagina any more than Obama was "entitled" to win for being an African-American. Both candidates worked their asses off to win and Obama won...fair and square whether you like it or not. Had it been otherwise and Clinton had won I'd have to suck it up just like I've had to suck it up nearly every election in my life.

If you're running around wondering why you "don't get no respect" maybe you should consider the fact that you can't recognise a good man who both loves and respects women from one who would laughingly offer up his wife for a topless biker "beauty pageant" on national television. I'm going to tell you the same thing Obama tells the African-American community: yes, there is some discrimination but at some point you have to take some responsibility for your own choices.

Fell in a Black Hole

Or something like that anyway. Kind of began with my frustration with the blogosphere in general, grew considerably over something a fellow blogger did and then we lost a family member in the tornados that hit Missouri back in May. At that point I could not bring myself to care if we managed to blow ourselves to smithereens much less what the talking heads had to say about anything.

Life goes on though, in spite of my continued struggle not to simply see us as a failed species.

Soooo....I'm going to try over the next week to catch up on reading my favorite blogs and um, yeah, try not to say "I told you so" about John Edwards. At least not too much anyway because really aside from some idle interest on how poorly most people read character, I don't especially care. I admit to laughing my ass off at anyone using the name "McCain" and the word "gravitas" in the same sentence after offering up his wife for a topless biker beauty pageant. Do not speak to me of anything Clinton unless you would like me to come unwrapped on your ass.

No, I haven't been out stumping for Obama or anyone else. It all looks pretty simple to me, Obama will most likely win this and if he does not we are most definitely screwed and I'll send you a postcard from Mexico. We are likely somewhat screwed regardless because we are way too deep in the shit for any one person or administration to dig us all the way out, best we can hope for is we get one that at least has shovels and know how to use them.

Will try to get back soon with something more coherent but you have fair warning, my misanthropic view of the world has only grown in my absence.
