Are you watching the debate? Is your head swelling from the strong odors emanating from your telly? So this is what our country and those wishing to run it have come to. American Idol for senators.....
Well, it's over. Hillary was peevish, and Barak was his alka-seltzer self. Bickering, hindsight, and hollow rhetoric ruled and none of it highly thought provoking. I'm too bored and too tired to even bother picking the low-lights, so let's just call this one a draw.
Hillary made no headway, and Obama lama-ding-dong did nothing to convince me that he has the balls to run this country, let alone deal with the foreign policy issues that will confront the next President. Sometimes I think he thinks that dealing with congress is something akin to running a nursery school...."Okay, let's have a snack now, then we'll take a nap, and then we'll get out our crayons and color pictures of how we want healthcare to look. After recess, we'll vote on who has the best picture, and we'll go with that." He does not seem to be able to fathom the difficulties he might have with such a dysfunctional group of egotists whose pockets are bulging with the I.O.U.'s of their constituents.
The sun will come up tomorrow, the birds will sing, and hopefully, we'll be one day closer to figuring this thing out. We will figure it out, too. We have to, our children's future depends on it.
