We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Mrs. Bird Dog attended this event last night. She and her companions said hi to John and Sarah. She appreciates these two fine folks very much, but she came home feeling discouraged about the election.
They raised $9 million, but how to spend it? All I got was an XL McCain-Palin t-shirt. Where can I wear that?
"...she came home feeling discouraged about the election. "
I just came home from town and the thought came to me that we're all like parents sitting on the bleachers at a basketball game with our child standing, ready to make the win-or-lose free throw. ugh. Can it get any more tortuous.
