I'm still fighting this virus thing and I am doing almost absolutely nothing. Yesterday my big accomplishment was doing the dishes that had accumulated. I hope that It goes away soon. I don't want to go to the doctor.
A lot is happening in the world and, while I'm sick of politics, it's like a bad accident and I can't walk away from it. I'll be glad when Election 2010 is over.
* President Obama appeared with Jon Stewart Thursday on The Daily Show and y'all can watch it here. I was impressed with what he had to say. He made sense to me and was quick to point out what he's accomplished considering the opposition he's had to face. I'm soooo very tired of the GOP's obstructionism (Is that a word? If not, why not?) and I thought he presented himself very well. He mentioned the tough race my Congressman, John Boccieri is facing. I never cease to be amazed that a blue collar union town like mine tends to vote Republican. My dad was president of his union so our mailbox usually contained labor-related magazines and literature in it but he didn't usually vote a straight ticket. I have followed his example but refuse to do it any longer until the not-so-grand-old-party restores common sense and common decency and get rid of Sarah Palin and her clones.
* Today is Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert's Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear and y'all can watch it online here and some wag hacked both Sarah Palin and Glen Beck's Facebook pages sorta -- I love it.
* In a rare instance of serendipity, Ohio State is playing Minnesota after the rally at 8 pm EST so I'm not missing a minute of either! I'm smiling.
Hope y'all are having a great day!!!!!!!!!
