I voted for Roseanne Barr… in an alternate universe of unicorns and cookie deliveries

early voting - Neil 2012

I voted today for Roseanne Barr because I believe America needs a man in the White House who knows how to make people laugh. At least that's what I did in an alternative universe where unicorns deliver cookies to my house every morning. I wonder who voted for her (and her vice president Cindy Sheehan).

If you've read some of the proposed constitutional amendments on the Florida ballot, some of which are thinly veiled attempts to insinuate religion into public policy, you'll understand Maher's point.

"When you elect Mitt you're electing every right wing nut he's pandered to in the last 10 years. If the Mitt-mobile does roll into Washington it'll be towing behind it the whole anti-intellectual, anti-science freakshow."

Just a general Facebook observation. Many of my Republican friends are posting about overseas issues like Libya & the supporting the troops, while my [...]

Freeloaders!

My friend and I went to a bar and kinda picked up a cute guy (he gave us his #) who is voting for
Romney. He is like 10 years younger, but we’re both two hot Latina women!

Now to the politics. So this guy said he is voting for Romney because he is smarter than Obama when it comes down to the economy.  And so I said: “Yes, he is smart enough to have shipped his company’s jobs overseas to China!”

He laughed sarcastically and said that I was parroting the anti-Romney ad messages, but that if Romney were to become president he would do what is best for the country.

I said: “Well, he did pretty well with Rommeycare in Massachusetts, but it’s surprising he is now against his own policies”. I wasn’t really able to finish my sentence, it was loud in [...]

My First Time

Lena

I have all the HBO channels for free until November 7th because I'm a cheapskate and I got an offer from U-Verse so I said "yes, why not." I got hooked to Girls (a series written and produced by Lena Dunham) immediately.I love her raunchy sense of humor, her quirky yet cool character and I have a crush on Brian Willam's daughter…

Today, I was given yet another reason to love this young woman.

How I wish my generation would have had a voice like Lena Dunham. Instead we suffered a creative eclipsed between the movie Reality Bites and the series My So Called Life.

For those of you who haven't watched Girls, I highly recommend it. And for those who haven't given a  to her Ad for Barack Obama, please take a look and do so.

Obama lead in Virginia up to 5 points

This just in from Public Policy Polling:

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Virginia, conducted on behalf of Health Care for America Now, finds Barack Obama expanding his lead in the aftermath of his debate victory Monday night. He now has 51% to 46% for Mitt Romney, up from a 49/47 advantage last weekend.

Key findings from the survey include:

-Obama’s seen a 7 point net improvement in his favorability rating among Virginia voters from a -3 spread last week (48/51) to now +4 at 51/47. Romney’s numbers have headed in the other direction. He’s dropped 7 points from a +2 spread on our last poll (49/47) to now -5 at 46/51.

-Voters trust Obama more than Romney on several major issues in the election. Those include who voters think will stand up for the middle class (52/44) and who they think will [...]

Obama Approval At Plus 11% In Gallup Tracking Poll

Although the seven-day Obama-Romney head-to-head poll still shows Romney ahead by 3%, the three-day Obama approval poll jumped 5% today from plus 6% to plus 11%:

 

 

10/21-23/2012 53% 42% 10/20-22/2012 51% 45% 10/19-21/2012 49% 46% 10/18-20/2012 49% 45%

 

 

We can expect the phantom Romney lead in the Gallup head-to-head poll to disappear as the small Obama lead in other national polls starts to be accurately reflected in the Gallup poll as well. 

One Day

One day, when all the leprechauns

come out of their holes

and compete in the magic poem tournament

I will finally meet my blind cyclop

with full delicious kissable lips

 

And the sky will erupt in a multicolor display

of orange and purple water crystals

yet behind the rainbow

a shoe will dangle from a tie-dyed tie

and if it fits

it will fit

WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama won the third presidential debate against his Republican rival Governor Mitt Romney according to two instant polls released by CNN and CBS News.

Inquiring fat cats need to know.

Discussing the military at the final presidential debate: Horses and Bayonets!

Bayonets

Obama responded to Romney's statement that he wants to add billions in defense spending to grow the US military by saying that Romney does not understand how the military works nowadays:

"We have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of military spending has changed"

I have always wanted a Democrat to remind people how backwards Republicans really are. This picture would be a good reminder:
