It's time!

Go thou and do likewise!

Yesterday was the first day of early voting here in Colorado and we went and cast our ballots.

We have the dubious distinction of having one of the longest ballots in the country this year (largely because it is WAY too easy to get initiatives on the ballot that just end up being fought in court and tossed out), and there was a line, but I'm sure it was a shorter line than there will be on election day.

Now I can just hope that the rest of the nation sees the wisdom of my thinking and votes with me!

It's so laughable and painful at the same time...

Katie Couric: Why isn't it better, Gov. Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families who are struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries; allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

Gov. Sarah Palin: That's why I say I, like every American I'm speaking with, we're ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health-care reform that is needed to help shore up our economy, helping the -- it's got to be all about job creation, too, shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health-care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americans. And trade, we've got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive, scary thing. But one in five jobs being created in the trade sector today, we've got to look at that as more opportunity. All those things under the umbrella of job creation. This bailout is a part of that.

I've been a little surprised at the lack of posting here, too, but I suspect it also has to do with all the political discussions going on on Ravelry. I have to admit, I love lurking on the McCain/Palin discussions, but only with a glass of wine in hand. Otherwise my blood pressure would rise and my head might explode.

It's always good to keep an eye on the opposition, and from what I've seen in the last few days, the opposition is starting to sweat. And that makes me happy.

Is this thing on?

No traffic and we've got a Veep who can't answer questions in complete sentences trying to talk her way into the White House? Let's be "maverick" like everyone! : )
