going once...

I'm talking race over at MOMocrats today for those of you who aren't yet sick of me talking about the democratic campaign and the woes of America.

(bueller?.....)

Writer is not technically as angry as she may occasionally appear on this blog. Well, mostly. She still likes a few things.
Red licorice for one.

Keep talking. It all needs to be said.

I never get tired of hearing what you have to say.

I'm still on the fence, but I am bothered by much of what both of these candidates are enduring, simply because of the color of their skin or the lack of a penis.

Also - licorice...mmmmm...

I've only read a bit of the speech and still need to give it my full attention but I've been with him all the way and am so glad he's given the nation something to sing about in these bleak political times.

Kyla said...

OMG. You are using the Ultimate Peep Show as your avatar. I think I love you.

Bon said...

i like red licorice too.

and while i can't vote, i'm listening and watching...wondering if maybe, maybe something will actually happen.

Please keep talking. I'll keep listening. And, well, there's a lot to be angry about. But the prospect of progress towards fixing the social ills that make us angry is so very tantalizing...

Not exactly on the topic of your curent post, but...
is that a bunch of "Peeps" watching a pole-dancing bunny on your avatar thingy? Oh boy howdy!

After reading your previous post me and Flo got talking about how no-one really voted Bush into power, like Mugabe he cheated his way in. And how different things would have been if Al Gore got the position that was rightfully his.

That's you angry? Perhaps you need to step away from the Buddha for a bit ;). (I'm kidding, Chani!)

I was talking to someone about Wright's words the other day and she said she thought it was patronizing to black Americans to hold them to a different behavior standard. Like explaining Wright's words in context was a condescending rationalization.

Discuss this amongst yourselves.

oh, it's just red states you don't like... you love red wine, red flowers, red planets...

Amanda said...

Umm, red licorice, for you I'll deviate from my HFCS hating ways, you are too good to be missed. Kinda like Jen, not that I am saying you are full of HFCS, you are 100% goodness, angry or not.

Jennifer said...

You inspired me to sort out my thoughts on this one, today. Thanks, friend.

Also, my husband just sent me that Peep show via email. Hee.

Also, red licorice ROCKS.

That is all.

i could never be sick of you, love.

Running on empty

Hetha said...

Red licorice is my favorite sweet of all time!

I'm a black licorice girl, the real stuff, chewy with molasses. Obama's race speech was yet another great speech. What would it be like to have a literate president? Wow. Imagine.
