Same job, different uniform.

Has your household been as wound up as ours about the vice president pick?

A flurry of emails this afternoon. Towards the end, he said:

I heard someone say in an Ad recently, I can't remember who, that Barack Obama would rather win an election than win a war.

That same person said that electing someone to the highest office in the land with the experience that Barack Obama has would endanger our country and leave us vulnerable on the world stage.

Now that person, in order to win an election, is prepared to have someone less qualified than Barack Obama be an assassin's bullet, a downed aircraft, a heart attack or a terrorist attack away from becoming the Commander-in-Chief.

Hypocritical. Not serious. Disappointing.
I replied:

A little less qualified, a lot more articulate, a lot less arrogant and completely lacking a Messiah-complex. And also running for a different office. It’s only happened about five times in US history that the president has popped his clogs while in office.

And I’m sorry, but I’d rather have a woman in there who BELIEVES THE RIGHT THINGS and has advisers to advise her on foreign policy, than a Garden Variety Liberal who believes the WRONG things and is naive to boot.

Whoo, bro, you’re getting me wound up here.
Note that I got the chance to use "pop their clogs" in an email today. Thank you Reverend Malcolm (Jr.).

She does need to answer one question: Does she know how many igloos she owns.
