I am LAZY. i opted to cuddle a purring, warm cat than get up and go to the gym this morning. I wasn't tired. I was, in fact, very awake and rather happy to be awake when my alarm went off. I suppose this was picture perfect lack of motivation. Ah well. I'm still going this afternoon. I'm going to see if I can make it 5 miles on the track at Princeton Club. 50 laps seems immeasurably large.

Apparently tis whole running thing is working well for me. I'm wearing a shirt that shrank in the wash. It isn't uncomfortable to wear anymore. Generally it would press on my lurvehandles but I'm not getting that right now. So. There ya go. Yoyoing weight (I weighed 193 this morning) but slimmer waist. I'll take it. I don't especially care about numbers.

We watched the whole debate again because we are junkies. It annoyed me. Surprise. I think Obama spent too much time defending himself and not enough detailing McCain's issues. However, Obama did not look like a, condescending clown when he wasn't speaking. Also, the who part about Palin vs. Biden? Well couched remarks from McCain. So, I think if you only look at the surface - the talk, interplay, force, etc - McCain won the debate. But I suspect if you look into the veracity of either claims, McCain continues to inflate (maybe conflate) his differences from Bush and the party in general.

Tonight? Finish certification projects. Hopefully in time to watch Supernatural AND the finale of Project Runway. If any of you spoil the latter, I'll cut ya. Though I think I know who won because the stupid DVR jumped us to the last minute of the episode when it freaked out scheduling in the middle of us watching the debate.

Why did you link that article?

To give you something to be humored with, namely, that there are people who make a big deal about African Americans not voting for other African Americans and their reasons sounding slightly on the implausible. The debbilYour lolobama made me do it.

Ah. See, context would have been nice. I thought you were pushing some anti-obama agenda. I'd have to cut ya.

Voting faith scares me. Faith should have no place in politics.

I agree about McCain having the stronger showing last night. McCain was on the attack, whereas Obama was playing it safe, trying to hold onto his fairly strong lead. As such I think if any undecideds were swayed then they were swayed in McCain's direction. However, I think McCain came off as a weasely man. Condescending clown is actually probably the best description, both when he was talking and when he wasn't. He butted in too many times when Obama was speaking, and I'd have to go back and watch again to be certain, but it seemed like on every single topic he had to have the last word. I don't think his condescending attitude would have caused undecideds to move against him and go to Obama's side, but I do think it may have prevented some from siding with him. I was glad to hear Obama respond several times to McCain's "facts" by saying "that's just not true."

And as you already know, the Joe the Plumber thing agitated me. I hate when politicians try to relate to me by mentioning one specific person. Talking about how Joe may be affected by each of your platforms does not translate into how the general public will be affected. I am not Joe.

Oddly enough, I saw a feed on this Joe the Plumber thing, and it made me curious enough to actually look it up.

Sad to say, people seem obsessed with a guy used as an example:

I on the other hand believe Mccain spent too much time attacking Obama. Come on! seriously, as an American during these times i want to hear how each is going to make a difference in the war, health care and the serious economic crisis going on now, i really don't care to hear whose feelings were hurt. I need a change, we all do! Thousands of jobs are being lost every day and this back & foward attacks aren't helping. To me, i feel Obama took the high road, he acted presidential. Kept his cool while Mccain rolled his eyes and attacked him. I thought that was very petty, after that debate i became an Obama supporter. And i'm deeply afraid if Palin were to become President, that's just a scary image.
