Has anyone else heard the Pearl Jam-minus-Eddie support song for Barack Obama? Itâ€™s painfully awful. Barack Around The Clock?! I’m sorry guys, but what were you thinking? Iâ€™m over here on the sidelines, supporting Eddie’s abstention from this particular project.
Okay, thatâ€™s about as close as I get to actually discussing politics. Iâ€™m sure there are undecided folks out there who can be swayed one way or the other; I recommend that those people head over to SelectSmart to answer a few questions about how you would want your ideal candidate to vote on the issues that are important to you, and it will go through the current candidatesâ€™ records to find a match for you. My own friends and family tend to be the sorts who are pretty well read up on the issues that concern them, and as strongly as I believe in â€œmyâ€ candidates, they believe in theirs. I donâ€™t actively try to shift anyone around. I do try to make sure that everyone makes their own, educated choice.
That being saidâ€¦ if any of my readers are that curious as to who Iâ€™m backing and/or why, Greeblemonkey has eloquently summed up many of the same points that have been floating around in my head.
We now return to our regular programming.
