I don’t know how to remain involved in politics without my blood pressure spiking. Here’s what’s happening:
- McCain supporters routinely shout “terrorist,” “traitor,” and other epithets I won’t mention here
- McCain supporters boo him when he calls Obama “decent” (because decent is a ringing endorsement)
- Palin was found to have abused her power as governor, in a Springer-worthy family dispute
- Fox and its wingnut followers are outraged that Newsweek didn’t make Palin look prettier
They’re losing, and they’re losing control. And the latter is a very worrisome thing.
But, to make myself feel better, I’m voting early this week. Tuesday or Wednesday. Then I’ll go to work on getting my mom to do the same. And pretend a large portion of this country isn’t rabid.
