“Wait…who sent you OK Computer? I would like to send them a thank you note.” – Alceste upon discovering music that doesn’t make him want to jump out of my moving car on my ipod.

Why was I not told about Sex on the Beach? Think they’ll make them with Jameson’s? You can drink like five of them and be completely fine. Because I am. No matter what Alceste, Mary or KJ says.
Alceste: According to Karol this is the most exciting vice presidential pick ever!
Me: No, just of her lifetime.
Alceste: Ah yes, I had forgotten the groundbreaking choice of Andrew Johnson in 1860…yes, I will be playing the role of Von Bek this evening.
“(McCain’s Palin announcement today) was like a fifth day of the Democratic Convention.” -KJ
“What a mismatch…it looks like some take your daughter to work day event.” -Dawn Summers after finally seeing the McCain/Palin announcement with sound.
Actually, I think Sarah Palin was a masterful move by McCain -but the pun was just too good not to use. Months ago, when it was clear who our presumptive nominees would be, Karol and I agreed that Obama needed to pick an old white guy and McCain needed to pick someone young. After all the carping about why Obama didn’t put Hillary on the ticket, I began to suspect that McCain planned to pick a chick. I thought it’d be Hutch…buy hey, Sarah me up. Now, first and foremost I would like to welcome Alaska and Hawaii to presidential politics. Who’s my little non contiguous states? You are, yes you are noncontiguous…but here you are represented on each of the big boy tickets. Good for you guys. Now, as for Palin, she’s definitely an unknown entity. The more I hear about her (never been on Meet the Press, scandals about firing her ex bro in law, didn’t know what a Veep even did a few months ago) the more I think this is good for Obamiden. Of course, she might take to the national spotlight like fish to a fishbowl and then all that won’t matter. Of course, I hope she chokes, but in terms of the bigger picture: hope and change in America, I am super psyched about this Presidential election. Right now, I think the Dems have the best of it, but now, whoever wins, changes the face of American politics forever. USA USA USA…seriously, I have got to stop that.
Go on, brush your shoulders off.
I can’t say enough about Obama’s speech tonight. Wow. I…wow. Unfortunately, I’m designated driver in an early morning roadtrip tomorrow, so I have to go to bed right now, but wow. Obama. Wow.
Have great Labor Day weekends, folks. This Presidential campaign season is going to be spectacular.
Al Gore boring. Blah blah blah carbon schmarbon. Stevie Wonder? Sheryl Crow? The biggest celebrity in the world couldn’t get Kanye or Hannah Montana?
But I highly recommend the movie Definitely, maybe. I know…it sounds like it would be cheesy, I mean, little kid, Ryan Reynolds, but…I dunno…it just comes together perfectly!
