The Times They Are A Changin'

Not only do we have a women, an African American and an old guy running for president, but for the first time a rock musician was awarded an honorary Pulitzer. The prize went to Bob Dylan for his "profound impact on popular music and American culture."

Congratulations Bob!

But back to the old guy running for president. Seems like a decent fellow, but I do have a few issues with John McCain:

First, he is (as mentioned) OLD. I've got nothing against old people--my husband is old-- it's just that I'm NOT OLD and I already have too many senior moments. So what will happen when President McCain does something like walk into room where a peace summit is taking place and forgets what he went in there for?

The second reason I have reservations about McCain is: HE'S NOT FOR PEACE!

I could go on, but Hamell on Trial (composer of Songs For Parents Who Do Drugs) sings it so much better: This is called Strolling in Bagdad.

My 10 yr old daughter likes McCain because he was hot when he was young. She is so on top of the issues!

Your daughter sounds so 'with it'. If she likes horses, we could be best friends. (Don't worry folks, she's my nice. I think.)

Thinking about these elections gives me a headache. When it's time to vote, I think I'll close my eyes, walk up to my tv and point. Whichever lady from The View my finger has landed upon will determine the candidate for whom I will pull the lever. Those View hosts are just so damn insightful, huh?

I'm all for peace. Vote for me!
