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.
I belong to a shooting club with probably 25-35% of the shooters being women. They often shoot faster and more accurately than I do. It may be "a pair" that makes a man, but it's maturity and character that make a leader.
Well, okay. I'd vote for her if I were in her district. But let's face it, it's a pretty dull ad. It would be nice if it said something that wasn't completely predictable. She's Republican. Conservative. Christian. Hates taxes. Can shoot a gun. I'll bet she even breathes in oxygen and exhales carbon dioxide, too.
Seriously, Dale Peterson managed to squeeze a lot more info into the same amount of time, and I'll remember his ads for the rest of my life. Even if he's not nearly as good-looking.
Wanted to let you know that I linked to your blog on mine. I was wondering if you have or will be writing about the proposed BPA ban in Massachusetts. I'm not sure how you feel about the isuse, but I just conducted an interview with Julie Goodman and asked for her take and she had some very insightful answers. You can read it here if you're interested:
Dear Cilla. Thank you ever so much for MISSING THE FREEKING POINT you ********. Ever hear of taking a vacation? What's the point? You'd just be wasting gas (gas is expensive). Why bother to eat (food is expensive and you are denying some child in china a good meal be eating your veggie burger here).
So what if she is 'wasting' ammo. You are wasting energy everytime you turn on your CNN or MSNBC for what point? To feel better about your righteousness? Get a life for goodness sakes. If she wants to spend her own money on a hobby, so be it. She is keeping somebody employed for the good of the country.
