what am i looking for in a president?


all we need is for our president to have one bad mood day and get itchy with that big red button.  “who needs midol, i have 12 nukes of the coast of greenland”

i want someone who has the same moral track record.  I enjoy flapjacks but not flip flops. 

Although Mitt Romney i’m sure is a decent person, and i know lots of really smart Mormans, Glenn Beck for one, given the choice i’d probably give my religious vote to Mike Huckabee.  I appreciate his views on abortion and the family.

My experience vote however hands down belongs to Rudy Giuliani.  I like his tough politics approach.  Not the kind of person to take crap from others.  I like that.

Incentive wise, Barack Obama had some really great things to say about Taxes, welfare and fuel.  His use of the faith card and lack of a faith demonstration does count as a few demirts.

All this of course is dynamic and i’ll be updating this post frequently as i get the urge.

Congrats Tori!

Tori did such an awesome job.  Yesterday was Pigskin.  Tori and the entire band have been working on the performance even before school ever started.   She did a solo through the entire 2nd movement.  The contest last night had to have been the best night yet.  It wasn’t until the end of the show that i realized that i don’t think i’ve ever actually seen the bands movments on the field during the 2nd movement.  I was too transfixed in watching the pit. 

They got a 1… of course.  And they deserved it too.  All the hard work and bandages on Tori’s hands….

Our future generation

man we’re in trouble…

In case you missed that: “I personally believe that U.S. Americans are unable to do so because, uh, some … people out there in our nation don’t have maps and uh, I believe that our, ah, education like such as in South Africa, and, uh, the Iraq, everywhere like such as, and I believe that they should, uh, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., or should help South Africa, it should help the Iraq and the Asian countries so we will be able to build up our future, for our children.”

Huh? Let’s get this straight: Many Americans — that is, U.S. Americans — can’t locate their country on a map because, well, they don’t have maps. That’s a weird start, but OK. Maybe.

Now, the tough part: What the heck does the rest of her answer mean? What do South Africa and “the” Iraq have to do with anything? And why should U.S. education help said countries? 

About the only thing that makes sense — and only in the world of beauty pageantry, where contestants aren’t really bred to answer skill-testing questions — is Ms. Upton’s belief (strong, I’m sure) that U.S. education should help … the U.S. For those out there who scoff at the idea of beauty pageants, here’s your cue to point and laugh. Ha ha. Dumb blonde, All beauty, no brains. Et cetera.
