Not My Obama Rally Wrap-Up ...

In addition to my spiffy rally card (those blue cardboard signs everyone waves at rallies), I also left last night's festivities, it appears, with some type of illness.

I guess that's what I get for hanging out with 40,000 people and leaving my Purell in the car.

I went to the gym this morning despite a slight headache but figured that I was just experiencing caffeine withdrawal. A stop at Starbucks on the way home for a triple grande hazelnut non-fat latte seemed to remedy that malady. But as the day wore on, I quickly dissolved into a cliché: afghan, couch, DVDs, intermittent dozing, cough, sore throat, slight fever, general lethargy.

But I pulled myself together and headed to the store where I scored supplies and a pint of hazelnut gelato, because, well because it's hazelnut gelato.

I've had some orange juice and chicken soup and feel slightly more human. Go, hydration! But I will continue to camp out on the couch in my comfy clothes, the remotes within easy reach.

Hope you feel better soon. This might be the universe's way of telling you to take a little break!

It is not fair that Democrats who tend to dominate in urban areas are allowed to have almost 2 weeks of early voting. The suburbs and rural areas who tend to vote Republicans only have one day to vote, thus imagine if there was bad weather or the like on that one day.

And so the GOP whining begins. For a party who stole, yes STOLE, the last two elections, you should just shut up.

The economic system is very important. I believe more so than the political system. A capitalist economic system embraces more laissez-faire and equal opportunity, whilst a socialist economic system embraces more economic interventionism and equal outcome.

If you think about it, even in a democratic political system the elected official becomes a dictator if the economy is socialistic and centrally controlled. A good example of this would be Adolf Hitler and NAZI Germany.

Seeing as you live in Indiana, a red state, are you going to be going door to door on Tuesday getting out the vote and talking little old ladies into voting for Obama?

Er, Helen, the last time I checked, early voting opportunities applied to everyone who is registered to vote, regardless of party affiliation. And don't give the bad weather excuse. If setting your opinion into stone is important enough, you endure the rain or the snow or the wind of whatever. Men and women have literally shed their blood for that right, both on foreign battlefields and on the streets of this nation. Your whining sullies their memories.

Jim Cantore from the Weather Channel said today on CNN that bad weather historically and statistically has always aided the GOP cause.
