McCain and the Political Mosh Pit


Two things that EVERYONE needs to be concerned with today.

1. At issue:  My right hip is quite sore.  And, this is seriously impeding my training.

Feel my pain and frustration as I rail against the injustice.

2. Burning Question:  Did John McCain take a dive when he selected Sarah Palin as his Republican running-mate?  In other words – did he know she would be an albatross for his campaign, and purposefully choose her as a ready excuse for failure?

So…  I observe McCain and I can’t see confidence in his demeanor.  He is a soldier (and, a hero) – but, not necessarily a leader.  And, Palin comes across like she is, at best, along for the ride, and having a good time.  Obviously, if McCain wanted to trump Obama (at least in terms of going after the female vote and the void behind Hilary Clinton), he could have chosen a much stronger female running-mate.  There a fair number of female leaders – whom are also state Governors (past and present) that inspire.

Unfortunately, having considered Palin’s public personae we may have to concede she is less a “maverick” as much as a punching bag.

Think about alternative candidates and lets see if we agree in my next post.  Here is a link to Wikipedia with a comprehensive list of female Governors (LINK).

By the way…  Apparently McCain can’t dance as well as Obama either (LINK).

Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.

What’s All This About?

"What am I looking at?", you might wonder.

Lots of stuff.

Meanwhile, here, I discuss events, people and things in our world - and, my (hardly simplistic, albeit inarticulate) views around them.

You'll also learn things about, well, things, like people you need to know about, and information about companies you can't find anywhere else.

So, while I harangue the public in my not so gentle way, you will discover that I am fascinated by all things arcane, curious about those whom appear religious, love music, dabble in politics, loathe the media, value education, still think I am an athlete, and might offer a recipe.

All the while, striving mightily, and daily, to remain a prudent and optimistic gentleman - and, authentic.
