Day: August 1, 2008

So, I was watching my AC360 podcasts this morning and I have one question about the recent throw down in the political arena….

McCain has put out some of his ideas on what he wants to do, Obama has put out his ideas on the economy and the war. We know, for the most part, what McCain is going to do and how he’s going to do it. But, Obama keeps talking about change (even though his ideas seem taken from the current playbook), but what changes is he actually going to make? Outside of telling what he’s not going to do, and that McCain has the wrong idea? Maybe I’m just weird, and this is why I’m not really interested in voting for either of them (McCain, because I only agree with him on a few things, but think he’ll fuck us up just as bad)…but I like to know what I’m agreeing to, not what I’m theoretically agreeing to. Which, is the main problem with the political arena, it’s a bunch of theoreticals, not an actual platform.

So, if someone can explain exactly what his plans are, please fill me in. His platform changes faster than Rob Halford can change outfits between sets, according to his website.

I love my horrorscope emails:

Dear Lara,

Get ready for drama! A total eclipse of the Sun will occur in the sign of Leo on August 1. Although this eclipse has a pretty narrow trajectory and will only be visible in parts of Canada, across the Arctic and into China, it still represents metamorphosis — change is in the air.
