I miss kibbitzing with you about the upcoming elec
I know we would have spent hours and hours on the phone about our candidates. I know you would have supported Hillary in the primaries and we would have had grand debates over whether being black or being a hated cheater's wife would have meant more baggage. I think you having met Hillary and having been charmed by her would have gone for her. I decided the hatred of the Clintons was more of a liability, but it was a close call. Once I made my call, however, I became annoyed with Hillary and we would have gone round and round no doubt.
However, we would have both had our yuks and feelings of wanting to vomit over the negative turn of the McCain campaign. Speaking of yuks, the moose woman would have had both of us howling our heads off. It would have been great fun and a great release. Obama is ahead, but I'm so nervous. The RNC sent out this mailer associating Obama with terrorists absolutely approved by McCain. Am I wrongly giving you credit for the name Repuglicans.
I don't know if you read or would have read any Harry Potter. At any rate, Voldemort is such an evil witch or whatever they're called that throughout the series, you must not say "Voldemort". You must instead say "He who must not be named."
Your wonderful city's paper runs articles by Paul Krugman. One of the things he said ---and I can picture you being as creative ---of the Repuglican Convention is that there was no mention of
"He who must not be named". It is in imho one of the most ingenious things I've ever read in a newspaper column.
You won't believe that a friend of mine sent me a bogus email containing a column purportedly written by Maureen Dowd claiming all of Obama's internet donations came from the middleeast. The information was ludicrous so you know no reputable columnist wrote it and certainly not Maureen Dowd whose columns are full of wit and humor and of course the phony column was full of boogey man scare tactics. What is it about this phony shit which sounds so much alike? Do they only have one neanderthal writer? My gawd, if you're going to make stuff up why not be suble, creative, maybe even believable? What's funny is a site which talked about the real column on the date the phony one was supposed to have appeared said the hoax was an insult to the American intelligence. While I agree, whoever said that didn't know how dumb and ill informed some people are.
We plan a party on 1/20/09, the end of an error, no matter who wins, You'd better come down from your perch and attend. Should have Chris and Vic over on election night, but I don't want to jinx it. Obama is ahead in the polls, but the negative shit is piling up from the other side and I, for one, don't underestimate the average voter so I'm scared.
This is a long winded way of saying, I miss you especially at this time as we had some marvelous political discussion. I've lit your candle which stands near me and it is waving in the breeze.
I Love you so much,
