I feel good about giving money to the ACLU.

Hi! I’m here! Been busy this past week, what with work craziness and friend awesomeness. So a quick catch-up of my recent activities and ponderings.
So. Bullet points, methinks? Why yes please.
Not gonna lie. Aretha Franklin’s hat was pretty much the best part of my day.
I mean, President Obama is cool too, but ZOMG THAT HAT. I cannot begin to describe how much chaos I would cause for the chance of a hat like that. Not that I could pull it off. But damn I would try.
Dude. You asked a guy a question. Another guy totally used you–he could have used anybody–to make a political point. What makes you think anyone cares what you have to say about “American values?”
And how the hell are you going to have a book ready for release on December 1st?
My favorite part of this story is that he’s signed on with a publisher that has published exactly ONE other book, a novel–and the author of that book is “co-writing” Joe’s book. And it’s being released on December 1st. Which is like, a week and a half from now.
Like, wtf. Seriously, Joe. WTF.
First of all, there’s no way it’s going to be good that quickly, and by good I mean both well-written and/or bound with something stronger than chewing gum.
Second of all, I don’t understand how you chose this publisher. Their website is practically non-existent, and what exists is badly written. (like, not unintelligible, but no competent editor would have let that novel’s blurb anywhere near the public.) Random House and whoever may be big companies, they may be part of some evil empire, but they at least have editors, and marketing departments, and money.
Third of all–do you actually have anything to say? And why should I care whether you answer yes or no?
Okay, I admit, I loved Joe the Plumber during that third debate, because McCain just used him ridiculously. But now I want him to go away. WTF.
I realize I’m late to this party, but I’ve been busy and sleep-deprived the past few days. Just pretend like I published this post on Wednesday morning. Thank you.
This may have been the greatest election in the history of the United States of America, and for one reason and one reason only:
CNN decided this election wasn’t exciting enough with only That One to hold our interest, so they added holograms. Also a weird 3D Capitol with shiny bits that appeared on that table behind the blond chick; the technology resembled that used in every sci-fi movie to plan an attack, such as the final meeting of the Rebellion leaders in Return of the Jedi, when the diagram of the Death Star floats above the table. (But shinier.) Basically, someone at CNN watched the Star Wars trilogy back-to-back-to-back-to-back and then had to figure out a way to classify it as a legitimate business expense.
So we got holograms.
Also, at the bottom of the screen, we got random little factoids like, “If Obama wins, Joe Biden will be the first Vice-President from Delaware.”
Well, gee. Too bad that wasn’t talked about more during the campaign, that’s IMPORTANT.

Really I’m still too much in shock to fully process what happened in our country Tuesday night. I am shocked and awed. So you get my ill attempts at humor instead. It’s a defense mechanism.
