politics make me queasy.

or rather, republicans, namely george and john, do.
the movie united flight 93 was on TV- arrg. hard to watch. i started reading up on 9/11 stuff for the first time in years. . . watched the infamous footage of bush sitting in the classroom on 9/11 like a fuckin dumbass . . . then proceeded to watch all the various videos on youtube of bush's fuck ups and absolute stupidity over the past 8 years.
a vote for mccain is pretty much saying you want four more years of bush. . . if any of you are planning to vote for mccain, do NOT tell me this. seriously. it might kill me.
grr.
no one's saying obama's perfect. he's still a politician. but he's the best option we have, and i have some faith in him. plus, i really like albuquerque and dont want to have to relocate to canada anytime soon.
i'm already nervous and its two months away.

a) What kind of rifle did you shoot? I have a 22 at my parents' house and I lurve shooting it. (At target posters, of course!)

b) K and I had dinner at Union Square tonight one block up from the dorm I spent 3 years at. I guess this week they're lighting those columns (pillars?) of light where the towers used to be, because we walked out of the restaurant and east, to catch a cab on Park Ave, and there they were, shining right where the buildings used to be for the first month I lived in that dorm. Til they weren't. Then I came home and saw some piece about Sarah Palin. Then I seriously considered getting into more credit card debt to fund Obama. Then I decided I'll wait til I have cash in my checking account, because, hey, financial responsibility, but DUDE. OBAMA '08.
c) I cannot watch United 93. It gives me a panic attack. At least it did the first time. Haven't really wanted to try again. Histrionic? Yes. Authentic reaction that I didn't work up for drama's sake? Totally. Ugh.

Also, thanks for the IM :)
