It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Let's talk about real family values

Everybody knows that John McCain divorced his disabled wife to marry a former beauty queen seventeen years his junior. He also basically turned his back on his first wife's two sons, whom he had adopted when he married her. He put the daughter Carol McCain and he had through college, but not the sons he had adopted, the sons that he was morally and ethically bound to treat as his own, forever - adoption doesn't disappear when you divorce. Nice touch. Divorce the mother, nullify the adoptions. I love those family values. NOT

On the other hand, we have Barack Obama. One wife. No divorce. Don't get me wrong, I'm not thinking this makes him some sort of saint, and I sure don't think divorce is an evil thing, I've done it twice myself. But which of these two men is showing the better family, nay, MORAL values? The one who sleeps around on and walks away from his crippled wife and remarries? Or the one who is still married to his ONLY wife?

Let's add another thing into this equation.

Barack Obama is currently in Hawai'i, visiting his grandmother, who is possibly on her death bed. The news sure makes it sound like she is.

He has put his campaign on hold to be there with the woman who was instrumental in raising him up to be a man of character and principles. The most important thing he can think of to be doing right now, with the election two weeks away, is to be at the bedside of his beloved grandmother, letting her know how much she is loved by him - enough that he will take the time from something as crucial as the last two weeks of a presidential campaign to be with her.

Now, those are family values that mean something.

Good on you, Senator Obama. Good on you.

I am SO voting for That One.

Borderline symptom of the day: chipperchipper

I didn't know about the adopted sons he abandoned. I see that as even more criminal because he did CHOOSE to commit and make them a part of his life.
I can almost sympathize with a man who in an instant of bliss created unwanted children he never then had choice regarding fathering.
But adoption doesn't take place in an instant of pleasure. It takes months or work, thought, planning and cooperation, not to mention financial input.
What a sad sad bastard.

and when you add in the VP candidates, well... yeah... let's just not go there.

One question tho... what's the deal behind the "That One"? Is there some reference somewhere as to someone referring to Obama as "that one"? Just wondering.


In the second debate, McIdiot was lying about something and pointed at Obama and spat: like THAT one.

I think Obama is remarkable, has been all along, even both he decided to take this path.

I really can't understand why ANYONE would vote for McIdiot. He's proven himself to be a jackass over and over again in so many ways. And who can honestly say "Oh yes, I want a jackass who ABANDONED his first family and LIES ALL THE TIME to run this country. I think that would be swell!". I just can't see it.

*smooshes Obama*

EDITED TO ADD: May I please use your "ThatOne" icon?
