To Sarah Palin
Another one bites the dust. When you arrived on the scene, you were interesting, dynamic, exciting. After only two months in the public eye, you’re a soundbite. There was nothing more disappointing than to watch the VP debates and see the canned responses, the constant pounding away at the same points and the CLEARLY rehearsed performances by both candidates. I have watched as Barrack Obama, who I saw in 2004 and said “I wish HE was running for president”, as national politics has changed him into a puppet head with the same crap flowing from him just like all the rest. I’ve watched so many candidates over the last twenty years who begin with “change” in their rhetoric and end up the same old, same old. Whoever coached you for the debate? Can them. Get rid of ’em. Stop telling us you’re a hockey mom and a maverick and BE one. What is it about National politics that forces politicians to “follow the mold” and divide us by class, race and gender? I’m beginning to get a little cynical.
To Joe Biden
I began the debate prepared to dislike you. After all these years, Joe, I know what I’m going to get with you. I’ll tell you a secret. You did well. I figured you’d toe the party line. After all, for the most part, you have for thirty-five years. But I was impressed that you managed to sound sincere. I haven’t changed my mind about you, but I wanted to say “Good Job’.
To The Folks On Twitter
Especially the “2008 Election Twitter”. I followed along with you during the first debate with Mcain and Obama, but I won’t again. I was appalled at the animosity, the acrimonious responses to the candidates and the nasty comments. And it was BOTH sides. The absolute hatred for Sarah Palin is disturbing. The borderline comments about Obama were scary. And the feeling that if you said something that didn’t follow the majority you’d be piled on was uncomfortable. I have NEVER understood the constant ugliness that seems to accompany politics online. To me, both sides have valid points for whoever they’re trying to represent. I don’t agree with certain things, to be sure. But I am NOT going vilify and sneer at the candidates who are running for higher office. I just don’t get that.
To The Boys In The Back Room
Better pull out a miracle and fix the economy, boys. We go down, they ALL go down.
To Loribelle Hunt and Jodi Henley
I have to give you credit for getting me a little closer to having an agent. Without you, Cup, I might not have met Jessica Faust at all. Without you, Lori, I might not have submitted a query to Ms. Faust last week. Apparently, I need kicks in the ass to move forward. Get your boots on, ladies.
What the hell is this story you’re giving me? You’ve been a pervy voice in my head for weeks and I’d REALLY like to move on now. Can we just finish this damn thing? And this whole alien sex thing? Not happy about it.
The wrong heroine? Really? I swear I’ll dump you off another crab fishing boat and you’ll be “Lost at Sea” for ANOTHER eight years.
To the Redneck
Thank you. For taking the dirt faced okie boys away for a couple of days and giving me some peace and quiet. Now, about those pictures…..
