I’d like to thank the WGA for going on strike

If it hadn’t been for so many people having nothing better to watch on TV, many of them wouldn’t be watching the debates. I walked into my local Starbucks yesterday and people noted my Hillary Clinton campaign button leftover from a couple weeks ago. I could hear snippets of conversation swirling around of a political nature. I accidentally took someone elses tall caramel latte and was really embarrassed but the young woman whose drink it was said, “That’s OK, I forgive you. At least you’re not voting for McCain.”

This is a very red suburb where there isn’t a single Democrat on the Township committee. About 4500 people voted in the precincts in our town just for the Democrats and Hillary edged out Obama by about 100 votes. People are paying attention, ready to work together and motivated. And for that, I would like to thank the WGA.

Now, get back to work on The Daily Show and The Colbert Report before I start to lose my patience!

  1. I just made a carametl latte here at home! Did you know starbucks will sell you the sugar free syrup? Looks like a whisky bottle. 6.95 and you can have as many as you want at home.

    I iive in a blue area that used to be red some not oo long ago…but has become very upscale. As a kid of working class self educated people, I can see both the intellectual point of view and the working class.

    Now that the writers are back, will the Daily Show conitnue to love Obama or will there be some sassy stuff showing up?

  2. Judith, I would hope that the Obamamania will become more balanced. But I am really looking forward to TDS going after the Bushies more.

    I know Starbucks has sugar free syrup but I like sugar, just not so much of it. If they could reformulate their recipes with all of the flavor of the cinnamon dulce and vanilla and gingerbread spice but with about only 1/3 of the sugar, it would be absolutely perfect. As it is, I ask for my vanilla latte as half sweet, unfortunately, that also means half vanilla.

    Americans are too into sugar. Too much of a good thing is just too much.

  3. I think we;ll always have the extremist nutcases for each and every occassion. And the way the media is formulated, they make their living encouraging a new extreme fairly often so I think it may well be time to find a new “new”. I am becoming fairly jaded I think.

    I love sugar – but I find the sugar free stuff tastier for some reason.
