I don't know whether to laugh or clutch my face in horror. I'm settling on making a sort of squeak of confused alarm, I think.

When McCain was in the Hanoi Hilton, everything else was no big deal and shit!

Does anyone know who she was thinking of?


I think I know who she means, but the name escapes me. If it pops back, I'll put it up. Of course, I'm also wondering if she meant Pat Paulsen...

"John McCain, hippie Green guy."

Settin' back, lightin' up a doobie with organic matches - I can see it.


Y;know, odds are she will forget to vote or schedule a hair appointment across from it...



Sometimes the thought makes me feel better.


Though he may deny it if confronted by dvd girl, John McCain still lives by Sgt. Joe Friday's warning that, "Marijuana's the match, heroin's the fuse, LSD's the bomb."


She was probably, in fact, thinking of Nader, who of course ran as the Green candidate in 2000.

At any rate, basically just totally uninformed. Presumably peer pressure will result in her voting for Obama in the end.

calling all toasters

She was probably thinking of either Giuliani or Pauly Shore.


No worries. She's probably not registered either.


Maybe she meant Ron Paul. Maybe she was just completely talking out of her ass. Hopefully she won't bother to vote, since her decision will be anything but informed.


I think McCain thinks he can be laid back when he's dead.


Although she seems the type who won't realize when "Voting Day" is until it's too late.

"Long line at the video store the other night."

One sort-of-word: Netflix. (You doubtless have good reasons for not using it, of course.)

On the young woman: I'm rather a misanthrope for a reason. I love humanity, it's lots of people I can't stand. The ones who are -- I believe the technical term is "idiots."

Of course, I myself am an idiot many times, in many things. So I'm not really all that absolute in my harsh. Just in some things, some times.

Also I hate that people are so intolerant and think they're so superior.

New theory: she wants to vote for the Hulk.
