More Like Goose..

If I hear the word maverick one more time, my head may just explode. If the GOP wants a vision of what a maverick truly is, they need look no further than the current president who did whatever he pleased and cared fuck-all about whether or not you liked it. The McCain-Palin ticket is a farce. They throw around words like "deregulation" and "reform" so liberally that I question whether or not their supporters really know what they mean. The original definition for the term maverick is: an unbranded calf that is separated from its mother. I know McCain and Palin are trying to pitch the nonconformist rebel image, but I think I prefer fiscally responsible, in touch and able to provide answers to questions with substance to the rhetorical canned answers they've put forth thus far. Example: Sarah Palin was asked for "specific skills" she could cite to rebut critics who question her grasp of international affairs, she replied, "I am prepared." And the place erupted. Haven't we learned what happens when we elect uneducated people to office with ties to special interests (like, say, oil?). If you are planning on voting for McCain, please read this book.

I feel the need, the need for speed.

"Did someone say speed?"

Quiet, Cindy.
