No Drama

  • What I'm Watching/Listening To/Reading:
    • Actually went out tonight to a function at a bar downtown, so not too much of this.
    • I thought this was the most insightful thing I read today. Considering we know how deliberate Obama can be, it makes sense.
    • This was the most passionate. I'm thinking I may need to amend my McCain essay from last week a little.
  • Random Thoughts/Links:
    • I'm just now half-watching a Family Guy re-run and this ad came on for a local pawn shop. I just don't know...
    • Aren't you, like me, just a little bit disappointed that the Large Hadron Collider didn't end the world? Wouldn't that have been at least a little cool?
    • I have very few thoughts today, random or otherwise. I do find it amusing that the person in one of my fantasy football leagues whose only QB was Tom Brady was very slow to pick someone up. So I grabbed Cassel to be my backup. Who did they get for their only guy? JaMarcus Russell. Yeah.
  • Daily Rant:
    • There's some talk about Democrats panicking about the election. Nonsense. A friend at work has started to get very concerned and won't calm down, no matter how much I say she should. See, she was a Clinton supporter, so she's new to the party. She doesn't have faith in the grand plan. I seem to remember a young(er than today) blogger who wrote this on November 3 of last year: "Obama had everything working for him: momentum coming off his great speeches at the 2004 convention and the Illinois statehouse, high public opinion as a fresh-thinking outsider that got a lot of play in the news magazines, history as he seemed to be the first African-American candidate with a legitimate shot. Well, that shot is gone. He has been boring and meek...." Could I have been more wrong? I seriously could not be less worried about the election right now.
