Barker's Newsbites: Friday, August 31, 2012
Busy, busy, busy day in front of me, folks!
There's a Doctor Who marathon starting at 10:00 a.m. on BBC America!
I need to catch up! The Sci-Fi Channel ran Doctor Who for a few years but then stopped doing so. I've missed a whole season - perhaps more!
Oh...? What's that...? You're asking what I thought of Clint Eastwood at the GOP Convention last night?
Um... well... er...
I choose to believe that...
Oh... screw it! It was awful. Don't know whose fault it was... whether that's what Clint wanted to do or whether it was the idea of a bunch of lame Republican consultants... but it didn't work.
Well... he gave a damn good speech. Gotta give him props for that. The "entrance..." No. Bad idea. I'm assuming they were mimicking a president's State of the Union Address entrance... but Mitt's not president (yet!) and some convention hall in Florida ain't the Capital.
Thank God the Convention is over - that's my bottom line.
Depressing that things have reached the point where I'm praying Mitt Romney becomes the next President of the United States.
Folks... we don't have the luxury of cutting our noses off to spite our faces this time around.
No... you can't vote for Ron Paul!
No... you can't write-in someone!
Folks... this is the "hope and change" election. It's not "good" against "bad," it's "the possibility a Romney-Ryan presidency will do the right thing more often than not" vs. "the certainty that a re-elected Barack Hussein Obama will complete his 'fundamental transformation' of America."
Yep... it's that friggin' simple.
