Lost in Translation

So Wednesday night I got home at about 7:30. I stayed just long enough to have the free dinner at work. They had Italian Beef and Italian Sausage… yum! And I mean it, too. Being Italian, I am typically really picky about my Italian-type meals, but the catering service at work really does them well. It was worth the wait.

Anyway, I got home at 7:30 and turned on the TV for the debates. I switched to ABC and caught the tail end of that new show “Lost.”

Omigod I’m hooked!

First of all, Matthew Fox is one. Hubba bubba. I never particularly cared for him on Party of Five, but here, he’s got a sexy, close-cropped hairdo and is lookin’ GOOD. Especially when he’s all dirty and sweaty and shirtless and…

Um anyway.

The debates.

I think they went well. (See my comment followup to the previous post.) But today everyone is talking about the flap about Kerry mentioning Cheney’s daughter in his response to the Gay Marriage question.

Here’s my thoughts.

1. Bush, of course, sounded like the ignorant Republican conservative nitwit that he is when he said “I just don’t know.” Of course you don’t know. You don’t know anything. Why bother opening your monkey-mouth, Chimp Boy?

2. Kerry’s answer was eloquent and compassionate. He mentioned Mary Cheney, yes. But in the context of the answer, it made perfect sense, and only proved how incredibly inept the Bushwhacker is about his own VP’s family and the state of the world today.

3. Lynne Cheney’s response to Kerry’s answer is absolutely ridiculous. Why, all of a sudden, was Kerry insensitive to their family or using this for political gain? It’s not like he outed her on national TV. HELLO, WE ALL KNOW SHE’S A FRIGGIN’ LESBIAN! We’ve known it for 4 years now. In fact, Cheney and Edwards talked about it during their debate.

Spin, Spin SPIN. Everyone is trying to spin things out of control and if it wasn’t so ridiculously OBVIOUS, it’d be laughable. Actually, it is laughable, but in that shake-your-head-and-stare-at-the-ground sort of way. I can’t wait for this election to be over with. The stress is getting to me.
