Every once in a while I think, "I should post that," and then I censor myself, because these are opinions that I know are not widely held. Like this opinion about Paris Hilton. Then I think, maybe these opinions aren't scandalous, maybe they can just inspire debate. I don't mean impassioned debate, more like a rice-cooking debate.
So, let the debate commence.
Resolved: That Barack Obama is just as folksy as Sarah Palin.
Close your eyes and picture Sarah Palin saying this part of Barack's stump speech: "I like pie. Some people like cake. I like pie. I like sweet potato pie. I like pecan pie, too ..." Barack's folksy, and it's probably fake-folksy, just like Sarah. Replace the wink with a grin and I'm afraid they could be faux-folksy twins.
Resolved: That We Appear to Have Lost an Entire Class of People
You know why I'm a Democrat? Because I don't think church people or state governments would voluntarily step up and feed the homeless and the heroin addicts. At one time Democrats' campaigns were about the poor and disadvantaged, now all I hear about is easing the "suffering" of the middle class. If you have a refrigerator with food in it that isn't rotted, hand some down to the people eating rats and pigeons. I want to hear some love for the poor. I want a Kennedy. I want someone with a little noblesse oblige.
Resolved: That "I Voted" stickers are Acceptable to Me in a Way JESUSTM signs are not
Every two / four years we have a national election and I vote. Afterward, I always have a crisis about the "I Voted" sticker, because truly, I don't want to be a Pharisee. You know what
Jesus Sherri says, "Thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." (Whenever I quote Jesus I always picture Marcia / #3 saying, "You know, he wasn't the only Jew saying that at the time! He didn't make all that shit up all by himself.")
But then I stick on the sticker because then strangers will ask me how long it took to vote, and I like having strangers approach me, so that then I immediately can take it to an uncomfortable level. ("45 minutes. I voted yes on gay marriage. How do you stand on that?")
