It's been quite a while since I posted. Lack of anything to say, baby who's refusing to nap, wayyyyy too much work, and oh yes, did I mention that my sweet boy is perfect in every way except he just. won't. nap?
That being said, he's been sleeping for like an hour right now. We're sleep training. Kindly don't share what a horrible mother that makes me.
I'm just really upset abut the election, among other things. Until Palin was nominated, I could honestly say that while I really, really want Obama to win, I wouldn't be horrifed if McCain did, becauase I thought he was a man of honor and would not be bad for the country. Enter Caribou Barbie. She's unqualified, not bright, and I have serious issues with much of what does come out of her mouth. Like that big-city, liberal-leaning people are somehow not American, not "real" Americans anyway. So, um, do I get to stop paying my taxes now?
And the hate mongering at the rallies has been just awful. It turns my stomach to think that in 2008, we're still here, with race-baiting and nastiness. When screaming "Terrorist" and "Kill him" at rallies is okay, when John McCain tells Barack Obama during their last debate that he's proud of the people coming to their rallies, these people calling for his head. How is this even acceptable? These people even booed McCain himself when he tried to show some class and tell them to simmer down. It scares me that America still harbors these kind of people, who are so distrustful of someone who looks different and has a strange name that they'd rather see him killed than president.
I care about and love many Republicans -- my dad, sister in law, and two best friends from college just for starters. None of these people are evil, scary racists, nor are they stupid enough to believe Obama is some kind of terrorist. I don't know how they can justify this kind of stuff happening in their name (if you're reading, feel free to weigh in, guys).
I'm just really, really eager for it to be Novmber 5th and this all to be over.
