Please Help HM Find A New Hobby

I am bored to tears tonight. Not actual tears. Figurative tears. I suppose I could go watch some newsy TV, and find out how bitter I am, or how typical, or how much I should finally be proud of my country. Perhaps I can catch a glimpse of Hillary pandering to the small-town folks, throwing back a shot and a beer, a disjointed boilermaker with the boilermakers. I'm not sure why she is the only one pandering. Didn't I see BObama sipping a beer in a bar just the other day? Silly me. I guess he had good reason, perhaps to put those Muslim rumors to rest. But how does that explain his bowling excursion while wearing dress slacks and a tie? Is this one of his hobbies? What is he, a regular Dick Weber? And that visit to a dairy farm, where he refused to wear the paper booties so as not to spread disease, but instead brought a pair of brand-new boots? What's up with that? He promotes condoms so girls won't be 'punished with a baby', yet refuses to even wear paper booties over his shoes? I smell a rat. Did he earn some of his millions on a dairy farm? I'm not understanding this pandering logic.

Do any of you even care about this election? Have you give up hope? Have you looked into the websites of the candidates? Here's what I have noticed. The comments on BObama's site run along the lines of, "OMG, you guys, let's get that survey up to 50%. Did you know that if you change your password, and delete your cookies, it will let you vote more than once because it doesn't recognize you?" Oh, and today, one of the commenters said that Hillary should have 'kicked Bill to the curve'. Ooh, that's cold! Imagine how much more of a kickin' Bill would have received than if it was only to the curb! On Hillary's site, there is a thingy called the Fact Hub, which consists mainly of things that BObama has said that are not true, and explanations to things BObama has criticized Hillary for. I must confess that I have not tried to find John McCain's site. I'm thinking it might just be some tear-off paper thingies posted on a corkboard in a cafeteria somewhere.

I need a hobby. TV ain't what it used to be.

How about taking up making those chain thingies with folded gum wrappers? It's soooo 70's! You could have enough done by Christmas to use as garland and strangle the tree to death. Imagine how much you could involve the students in this new-found fun.
Oh, but I suppose you could still watch tv while doing that, eh?

I've pretty much given up on this election. I don't care for ANY of the candidates. I'll vote (can't complain if I didn't vote!) but I still have no idea which is the lesser evil for me.

McCain's website is a big picture of him going, "Neener, neener, neener."
I care! I even vote by absentee ballot - and everyone knows those don't count.

I saw that in 28 Days, that Sandra Bullock movie. It looked pretty time-intensive. But it kept her from telling those other stoners to 'back the f**k off' too often.

If you watch MSNBC, they will tell you how to vote.

I will check him out when I have more time. Tonight I have to watch the debate so I will know what Hillary is being blamed for next, and to see if Bobama walks on water.

I thought those absentee thingies counted twice. Oh. That was in Texas.
