    You said “Caucus” hehehe.

    Yup, secretly 12 over here, too.

    Glad Baby O is feeling better!

    And, I got all the candidates on their hair.  Cause I’m a huge dork like that!  I was all like “Hey, Rudy and Mitt Dropped out, already!”

    SOOOOO many people aren’t aware of how the voting structure of this country works (Although the 2000 election was QUITE an eye opener for many, I am sure.)

    Way to educate! (Much more helpful than the “School house rocks!” episode on how a bill becomes a law.

  • February 9, 2008

    Yeah. I hear you.

    Glad to hear the man-baby is getting better!

  • February 9, 2008

    My goodness, he IS huge!!  He looks GREAT in that stroller!

    My grandpa would always say, “Now wait a minute, we’re gonna have a caucus.”  (insert old person accent) or, “Let’s have a caucus.”  He would do this before ANY *important* decision.  Like which mall to go to. hehehheh.

    SO, thanks for bringing back good memories of my gramps.  And reminding me how much our country SUCKS BALLS.

    I hear ya. Politics to me are like a Far Side cartoon: “blah blah Ginger. blah blah blah blah Ginger.” I try so hard to pay attention and learn what I can and then get confused some more. The answers all depend on who you ask too. In the end, I just follow all the other lemmings, go fill in the little oval for the person who convinces me they will do the best job based on who has the best speech writers. And hair dresser. Then I grab the handles of the hand basket and hang on. I wish I weren’t so cynical, but cheese-n-rice, it’s only February! A lot could happen from now till then.

    I think RuPaul should run for pres and that would fix everything. Terrorists would take one look at that and say “oh HELL no” and leave us the frig alone so we can concentrate on getting better botox injections for all Americans. God helps those who help themselves, right?

    Glad to hear ManBaby is doing better. Yay! That’s the most important thing of all.

    I totally don’t understand how it all works.  Kinda makes me sad.

    If I went with the whole hair thing, I’d have to go for Guiliani or Obama on the mere fact that they would spend the LEAST amount of time “primping” and the most amount of time “Commanding.”  Edwards & Romney?  Too pretty.  No man, in my opinion, should use more hairspray than me.  And I don’t use any hairspray.  McCain?  I CAN NOT condone the “comb over” no matter how inconspicuous it is.  Hillary?  The closer she gets to the White House, the more her hair starts looking like a “Helmet Head”, which, again, is something I can’t condone.  I guess that means my actual vote correlated with my version of your hair thing.  Maybe you’re on to something!  Go Obama!

    Oh, and I’m glad Baby O is okay.  I think “Man Baby, 20 pound 9 month old RSV sickie” is not as scary as “newborn, preemie RSV sickie.” I’m pretty sure that’s what Google would tell you as well.

    Hmm. I think I like McCain’s hair best.

  • February 9, 2008

    As usual, I think I’m basing my vote on who would make the best SNL character. Although, oddly enough, that doesn’t always go over so well in the caucuses. I even come with proposed, story-boarded sketches and try to act some of them out.

    I kid, I kid..we all know nobody watches SNL anymore. Really, I’m looking for somebody who can beat the McCain/Huckabee(old/crazy) ticket.

    caucus on.

  • February 9, 2008

    I know the system is outdated.  It definitely needs to be revamped.  And perhaps if we keep making our voices heard regarding what we want maybe it will happen.  Major party changes, major constitutional amendments have happened before, it can happen again.

    I can’t help it, in the end I always end up an optimist when it comes to the framework put into place by the founding fathers.  But that’s the historian in me, I guess.

  • February 9, 2008

    Man, you gotta love our state aye?! One party uses the caucus system the other the ballot system. Than theres that whole little sticking point about the ‘pick a party primary’ that bugs me. I mean, seriously?!, just pick a party?! What if say I pick party A in race 1, but in race 2, I think that party B is better?! Hunh! what then?! Okay I’m going to shut up now as I need to go hunt down coffee *glares at the broken coffee maker* Than I’m considering going and watching(but not participating in) our caucus here, I’m curious how they work, but I have no inclination at this point to pick a party and stick with it.

    I’m a fellow Washingtonian who used to be a Californian.  This is my first presidential primary as a Washingtonian.

    I was appalled to find out about the caucus thing.  I have it on good authority that the Democrats are the only ones who use the caucus, so I voted Republican for the primary.  Yes, I know that the Democrats will win the presidency, but I’m don’t have the time to go to a building and stand in a line and pledge my support and listen to speeches and be counted.  MY GOD.  Now if they had free childcare and booze, I’d be all over it.

  • February 9, 2008

    Seriously, I do not understand how your voting system works.  It is so damn confusing that I cannot fathom how anyone actually knows what they’re doing.
    It’s just so much simpler up in the Great White North smile

    The current system def. needs to be revised or recreated. I personally think that the primary states need to be rotated.  It’s not fair that some states have, essentially, little say in what happens. Why all the attention on IOWA and New Hamshire (I am from Iowa orig…)? It needs to rotate and the whole system needs to be revised!!

    God… I really must just consume your children.  NUMMY!

    You’d better just come clean now and tell me you’re an Obama fan or I might just have to… ummmmm… well… stop thinking you’re cool.  So there!  (Okay, I’d still lurve you, but I wouldn’t lend you my groovy Obama t-shirt).  smile

    I have that same exact stroller!

    It’s been interesting reading about the election here in India….I think they have a better understanding of the caucus than Americans do.

  • February 11, 2008

    I’m glad he’s doing better- and great picture!

    Did you see the article in the paper about how most of us didn’t vote right on the primary? Apparently there was something to sign on the back of the ballot re: which party we’re in.  Who looks at the back of the ballot. But, like you said, the votes don’t matter anyway. 

    I’m so tired of politics.

  • February 11, 2008

    Can you believe I work in the politics biz for money, and I have no freaking idea how this works. I don’t want to, because then I’d have to rework my mission in life. I just go vote like a good sheep and then watch the chips fall. But it is screwy!

  • February 11, 2008

    I get a glazed over look when people start going too in depth. All I know is that my state is republican and I hear that I “throw my vote away” by not voting republican…and yet…whatever!

    I think I will go with the best hairdos this year smile

  • February 11, 2008

    OMG, free booze and childcare? that’s the way to get us to vote! And it’ll grab those teenagers, too!

    Let’s write congress!
