As a rule, I never post about politics. The current race, however, really begs to be talked about. I have lots of friends that are much more intelligent than I am, so click on their links over there on the right. Many of them have deep insightful things to say about the election, and they vary in their actual political positions. Great set of folks to know.
What sparked me to post something is the realization that one ticket has a woman, and the other ticket has a black man. Awesome.
See, I know folks in real life that are horribly put off by a black man in office. (Ugh. Don’t get me started. The aforementioned people are not my friends.) Those same people, along with a whole slew of others think a woman on the ticket is a horrible travesty to the election process. My thoughts?
TEE HEE HEE!
Truth be told, I’m not really supporting either party very strongly. I won’t be staking any political signs in my lawn this year. I WILL be watching the debates rather intently. I have no idea who I’ll be voting for. No, I’m not really asking for feedback pointing me to either side. You won’t win me over, please don’t bother trying.
The fact that we’ll have either a black president, or a woman vice president — THAT is awesome, and makes my day.
