Another pseudo political debate

Phew, I’m sure glad that I didn’t stroll over to the University of Arizona student union last night to watch the Congressional “debate” with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), Jesse Kelly, her loudmouth challenger and Steve the libertarian, who had no idea what to say half the time.

Gabby looks great with her new hip haircut. She pushed the fact that she’s the “only military wife in Congress!” That was a surprise, that she would push that fact. But she’s got to, considering the lunatic fringe loudmouth voters. She’s worked hard. Not that she’s always reflected my views but for the most part I trust her intentions.

Kelly had the most quotable line of the evening, I’ll give that to him: “I’m for a 10 percent flat tax. If it’s good enough for Jesus it’s good enough for me.” Huh?

Does anybody remember when Ronald Reagan suggested that pollution was the fault of trees? I didn’t get that either, but how could Kelly even imply that a religious policy of 2,000 years ago has any credence in today’s world? Yeah, and Benjamin Franklin didn’t have an iPad either. Does Kelly care what makes sense?

Course not, it’s the tagline: I’m a Christian, I’m a Christian, that’s all you need to know about me. Ha ha ha ha ha, she’s not.

I’m glad I didn’t attend the debate because it was mostly about which candidate’s supporters hollered the loudest, which makes me wonder, does politics bring out childishness? I want my guy to win, no matter what, uh, cause he’s my guy. It’s like a game of dodge ball. I was always picked last for team sports so I didn’t care about my team. If I was going to win at anything I had to do it myself.

Some people are team players, but when they’re left alone they can’t keep their mouths shut. Delaware Republican U.S. Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell must think she’s smart, or she’s too stupid to realize how little she knows. In her debate last night she asked if  separation of church and state was part of the Constitution. http://thecaucus.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/10/19/odonnell-questions-church-state-separation/

We’re in big trouble.

    If ever there was a need for a new American revolution! Where in Noam Chomsky’s name is all the “conscientious objection” thinking people once engendered?!?
