Jewelry Viruses

Some woman from Maryland called into the QVC jewelry show and started asking something about why there weren't more clip-on earrings.  (At least I think that's what she was asking about -- I watch QVC while working so I wasn't really paying attention.)  The show's host directs her to the QVC website where she could find a lot of clip-on earrings.  It sounded like the woman just wanted someone to talk to, because then she starts going on about how she has a computer, but with pop-ups and viruses and all that, she hasn't turned it on in 18 months.  Not something the host was expecting.  On a jewelry show.  It was funnier when I was listening to it, I think, because of the way the caller was talking.  Just dragging on about the horrible things on the computer.
Although, now that I think about it, the fact that she's even used it and knows what pop-ups and viruses are, still puts her ahead of McCain in terms of technology.
"I've seen hot grandmas with ankle bracelets on."  And people wonder why I leave this on for background noise.

Basic Reading Ability

I am really annoyed with the media (aside from Keith Olbermann).
All this crap about how Obama is "in a shift" rejecting public financing, or flip-flopping, or changing his mind, or going back on his word, or how he lied before, or blah blah blah...
Can you people read?
Can you read the part where there were conditions on whether he would take it?
Can you read the part where he said he would take it once there was agreement with the other party's nominee?
Can you read any of that?
Or, rather, can you understand it?
It's not going back on a word.  He didn't lie.  So frustrating.
And his system is more like real "public" financing than anything people have been doing.
But I guess my outrage at the media is good, because as long as this keeps up, I'm going to donate money every day that it makes me pissed off.  Thank goodness for blogs.

It's been over 6 hours since I first heard, but I still can't believe that Tim Russert has died.

The only news I actually watch is MSNBC (and the Daily Show and the Colbert Report), so I would see him on the screen all the time, especially this election cycle. Really, really shocked and saddened.

Heat Wave

It's just wrong that it's 89 degrees, with a heat index over 90 degrees, at midnight.

Very, very unpleasant.

He Went Green?

I guess tonight's drinking game should have been to drink every time McCain said "change we can believe in," or rather "that's not change we can believe in."


All I do is shout at the screen when this man tries to talk. I mean, read. Off his 3 teleprompters (and it's obvious where they are). The man who ripped off the slogan he is enjoying mocking to make his own new slogan, "A Leader We Can Believe In." Can't write your own slogans? And how about doing his speech from New Orleans, the city he couldn't bother caring about during the hurricane while he was having cake with BFF Bush?

Thank goodness I don't have to listen to him whine anymore, because Keith and Chris cut him off to talk about how Barack is the presumptive nominee. They just cut him off completely and without another word about him. Haha. CNN's not showing him either. Only Fox News. The "fair and balanced" network. Sigh. How on earth could Hillary's surrogates go on the air and call them "fair and balanced"? It only helps with their attempt at legitimacy.

And it appears CNN and MSNBC are done with him. Good. No more mocking of change. Real change. Not "McCain" (non)change.
