Observations from the Coffee Shop 8.23

I haven't done much writing in the past week in what is possibly the longest drought sinse I started this blog. Truth be told there are a couple reasons for that. One is that as much as I love it I'm just totally turned off by politics right now. I just can't think of anything good to say about it and I'm trying to be good. I'm just a sweet little girl trapped in a tall bitches body trying very hard to let her out.

Seriously the collection of circus clowns chasing the GOP nomination for President is just pathetic. The emergence of Rick Parry from his neanderthal cave in Texas would make it all the more laughable if we weren't talking serious shit here. Charles Blow said it best in his opinion peice in Sunday's New York Times (l). "The Buzz Lightyear-come-to-life bravado of Rick Perry, complete with delusions of grandeur and accomplishment." Personally I think he is just a poor impersination of that last President from Texas whose name escapes me at the moment. Than again maybe I was right months ago when I said former Utah Govenor Jon Huntsman would end up being the GOP nominee for the simple reason that he is the only one running who seems sane enough to actually win. Last Thursday he tweeted "To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy." He picked up 7,000 followers the next day.

Than I read this on Politico (l) yesterday and it just gave me another reason to think this country is run by a bunch of loons. "President Obama decides to vacation while world burns. White House aides say he deserves to spend time on an island with extremely rich people in order to get in touch with America. Aides also cite fact he has not played golf in at least several days. Good publicity follows: Though Obama started war in Libya in belief he was preventing a genocide and it appears to be a war the United States will actually win in under 10 years, headline on Washington Post website Saturday is: “As rebels close in on Tripoli, Obama getting updates on Martha’s Vineyard.'" Actually I found that pretty amusing along with GOP law makers complaints about Obama's vacation. When was the last time any of them were in Washington?

Oh i guess I still love politics but at times it all makes me want to dye my hair the same color as Hayley Williams and run away screaming.
