Words, Words

The VP Debate - Didn’t Senator John Edwards seem like a teenaged boy trying to argue with his father over how the family should be run? And didn’t Edwards’ repeated, “Halliburton, Halliburton” remind you of Miracle Max’s wife shouting “Humperdink, Humperdink?”

Straight Talk – Recently John Kerry has accused President Bush of “not being straight with the American people” and John Edwards has said that the president is “completely out of touch with reality.” Why don’t they have the manhood to say in plain words that they think our President is a liar and a lunatic!

Really Straight Talk – Some politicians do actually say what they think. Rep. Jim DeMint, a Republican third-term congressman running for the Senate in South Carolina recently said in a debate that homosexuals should not be teaching in South Carolina's public schools. When asked for an apology by gay members of his own party DeMint said: "I would have given the same answer when asked if a single woman, who was pregnant and living with her boyfriend, should be hired to teach my third-grade children. I just think the moral decisions are different with a teacher. We need the folks that are teaching in schools to represent our values." Gee it sure is shocking when someone is candid about his views.

Nobel Prize in Literature? – And in closing, why is Bob Dylan even being considered for the Nobel Prize in Literature? I guess the answer is blowing in the wind.
