So I have to admit that since the election was called, the interviews that Sarah Palin have been giving are hilarious! You can tell that she has come out of her shell and out from under the thumb of John McCain.
I really do think that she has been treated unfairly. Yes, her policies are absurd and ridiculous, but that is over now. It’s the past. I feel bad for her and wish that people would stop criticizing her–even now. She may not have been the best candidate for the Vice Presidency, but you have to admit that she does seem like a caring, genuine, wholesome person. I, for one, am looking forward to seeing where her career goes from here.
I was watching Anderson Cooper tonight and he showed a clip of her sort of pissed off that people keep talking about the money that the RNC spent on her wardrobe.
Below is the quote that I typed out from playing the clip back on my computer. I laugh every time I hear her say it!
“It’s just very very disappointing, because this is Barack Obama’s time right now, and this is a historic moment in our nation, and this can be a shining moment for America in our history, and look what we’re talking about, again we’re talking about my shoes, and belts and skirts.” – Sarah Palin

In yet another video that knocks me out of my socks, some “pro-Jesus” rallier gets people to believe that gays are equal to Hitler! HITLER!! The best part is when he talks about something Hitler said and half the audience yells “Yes!” while the other half yell “boo!” The audience doesn’t even know what he’s talking about! LOL! I hope people can look at this video and understand how horrible this proposition is. If you’re in California vote NO on Prop 8.

My favorite one is, “Obama’s middle name is HUSSEIN!” Run for the hills if you’re middle name is Hussein!

David Sedaris Quote – Hilarious! October 23, 2008Posted by johnthrasher in Personally John, Political.

Here’s a hilarious David Sedaris quote that I found online talking about the status of undecided voters. I’ve been thinking this since 2004 when America reelected the President that let 4 planes crash in to buildings and fields!
“I look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? I wonder. Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “Can I interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it? To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.”

Colin Powell Endorsing Barack Obama — Pigs (With Lipstick) Fly October 19, 2008Posted by johnthrasher in Political, Television.

If this isn’t the ultimate example of Obama’s ability to pull people from both sides of the political line, I don’t know what is. Though Powell has always considered himself a Republican, you have to consider him a liberal one nonetheless. He’s had a long reputation of refutiating against a lot of what the Bush administration stood for. What makes this such buzzworthy news is that he was just the Secretary of State during the climax of the Iraq war in 2003, and 2004 for the Bush administration. You could compare this to George W. Bush leaving office, and then supporting Barack Obama! It’s absurd!
Congrats to Colin Powell for coming out for the Democrats. I am sure that he will receive a lot of flack for his stance but it just goes to show the respect we should be giving to Obama for stimulating the thoughts of more than just a polticial party: an entire nation.
Thoughts on the Movie “W.” October 18, 2008Posted by johnthrasher in Movies/Film, Political.

So last night C’Anna and I made a little Mexican dinner. She made tacos and I made tortilla soup. The tortilla soup came from Adam because he made it the night before and after dropping some of it, I ended up eating the entire vat of it. It’s sooooooo good!
After dinner we decided to catch a movie that both of us have been anticipating for a while. She was more interested in seeing it; I was more interested in hearing how it was. But alas, we decided to just go see it together.
I went in to the movie knowing almost nothing about it. I didn’t know if it was a comedy, a biopic, propaganda, or a cartoon. I was literally blinded. However, I’ve noticed that I like going in to movies not knowing much about them.
This movie was definitely very interesting. Though it was unintentionally funny, the lines that forced an audience reaction to laugh got old after the first 30 minutes. Further, sitting behind a guy that would laugh and clap his hands wildly while the rest of the audience sat in silence cast a pretentious fart cloud over the back right part of the theatre.
I thought Josh Brolin as George W. Bush was really great, but I’m not sure he was some sort of Oscar winner in it. I think people are so quick to jump to the Oscar nod when someone is half way decent at their job as an actor. It wasn’t edgy, it wasn’t fascinating, and in fact, the character was silent, drinking Jack Daniels for a good 3/4 of the movie time anyway. The characterizations were spot on: not too much, not too little. However, the use of Karl Rove as the comic relief got a bit annoying. Especially because it was based on his looks. There would be a serious moment in the film, and it would cut to Karl Rove standing there with a huge forehead and his glasses overtly magnifying his eyes. The audience would laugh, and the camera would pan away. I’d say the characterization of the Bush administration was one of this movie’s main strengths.
The movie had a decent pace until the end. The last 45 minutes of the movie are very slow and mundane. I mentioned this to C’Anna on the ride home and her response was, “Maybe this is symbolic to his presidency?” I think that could be true, but I doubt that kind of device was being used. I often found myself dozing off or checking my phone to see if I would make it home to catch the end of Letterman.
Overall, I didn’t really enjoy sitting in the theatre. I was thinking later that I wasn’t quite sure what the director wanted the audience to experience. By the time the credits rolled up I was wondering what the point of the movie was, and what I was supposed to take away from it. It was rather bizzare.
I give 6.5/10 stars.
The Three Joe’s October 17, 2008Posted by johnthrasher in Political, Television.

I don’t know about you but I am so sick of hearing about Joe the Plumber. I understand the media loves tag lines and icons but seriously, it’s starting to become very annoying. The debate was only a few days ago and if I hear “Joe the Plumber” one more time I am going to go lay in lava.
Let’s talk about all of the Joe’s who have come to light this election season.
First, Joe Biden. Have you forgotten about him? Yeah, me too. The least controversial candidate of the 4 running is just creepy looking to me. Of course, I am a Democrat so this isn’t slander, rather a simple observation. What is happening with his hairline by the way:
It looks like his face is trying to separate itself from the rest of his head. It also looks like it really hurts. Ouch!
Second, Joe Six Pack. I actually had f*ing clue what Sarah Palin was talking about when she said this until Tina Fey did her spoof which included her miming opening up a can of beer. For some reason I couldn’t get my head away from the thought of washboard abs. Joe Washboard Abs. Yet, another thing I can’t relate to regarding Sarah Palin.
Finally, Joe the Plumber. As mentioned above, I am so sick of Joe the Plumber. CNN will not shut up about it. Literally every other story focuses on Joe the Plumber. Again, I missed the boat with who this guy actually is. The first time I heard of him was on the debate when McCain mentioned him 21 times. That’s a fact. Are we (the American people) supposed to know who the hell Joe the Plumber is? I thought it was just a symbolic name representing middle-class America, but apparently it’s some bald guy who incidently has done more interviews in the last 3 days than Sarah Palin has ever! Fun fact of the day there for ya.
Okay, if you’re name is Joe, I might be specifally avoiding you today and probably tomorrow. Just until this Joe Six Plumber Biden buzz calms down. I really can’t take it.

This was posted on PerezHilton.com and I am sort of speechless. It’s sad that some people actually think this way. Shouldn’t the McCain campaign be addressing this demographic: the ones that fill their rallies believing that this “n*****” will run our country.
Shouldn’t we have a license to vote? I think so!
