I read a post yesterday and followed it all day. When I first read it at 9:00 am, the blog hits were around 3,800. Last night at 10:00 pm they were over 28,600. This morning – over 32,900. The people keep coming. They keep coming, because what she wrote strikes a chord with people. Most of the commenters agree wholeheartedly, while others vehemently disagree. The post in question was written by Helen Philpot, an 82 year old grandmother with an opinion about Sarah Palin. I highly recommend reading it – click here – Helen tells it like she sees it and I admire that. I found the link for her post on the SNL website for a Tina Fey spoof on the VP debates – click here for that.
Click here for my earlier rant on the VP debates.
And now back to the beauty of the autumn leaves.
Kitty was lucky, she was hiding in the closet during the VP debates. Actually, that’s where she pretty much stays thanks to Buddy’s constant harrassment. And she was able to avoid listening to me yelling at the TV, unlike Buddy and Buster. Poor guys didn’t know what to think.
Why is it so hard to say “nuclear”? I don’t get it. Palin’s originally from Idaho. They talk normal in Idaho. Again, I don’t get it. She actually has some strange speach nuances.
I must say that her aides prepped her really well for the debates, but I was still a bit ticked off that she chose to ignore answering some questions in order to speak about whatever topic suited her. This was a debate and the purpose of the debate is to answer the questions posed of you. She didn’t do that. The VP debates more than likely won’t change whom people select come election time, but it made for some very interesting TV.
My apologies for the political rant. Normal postings return tomorrow. (smile)
