Uh, Twittering the Great Debate?

I just got a furious* e-mail that said I blew goats because I didn't Twitter this debate. I am sorry, I didn't know that it mattered to anyone what in the Hell I did.

If you have suggestions for making this blog better, please do not hesitate to speak up. Criticism is always appreciated.

Anyhoo, it was another yawnfest between the Obamoron and the McCainiac. How can we possibly find two less inspiring people to run for president? My suggestion is to find some homeless people that are barely able to construct complete sentences and then hop them up on some kind of dope. Then the debates would at least be amusing.

Here's a little story from the wayback machine for your reading pleasure. When I was about four years old back in 1969, my family went to Daytona Beach for vacation. Since I was an absolute nutcase for anything associated with NASA and space in general, we took a trip to Cape Kennedy, took photos of the Apollo 11 on the launch pad and my folks ordered an LP of the future recordings broadcasted from space.

I practically jizzed my skivvies waiting for that album to arrive. When I finally received it about six months later, I immediately placed it on the turntable and began to listen. There was ONE part that actually meant anything to my then five year old mind.

I remember a guy from Houston saying something about being worried while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were trying to land on the moon. He said something about turning blue, and now we can breathe again.

And then of course, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."

The rest of the album was the gibberish of rocket scientists talking to one another. And it was a double LP. Yes, I still have it somewhere.

Tonight's debate was certainly NOT rocket scientists talking to one another, but it had the same effect on a forty-four year old as that rocket scientist talk did on a five year old. It put me to sleep and I missed the remaining hour and twenty minutes. So who won?

Here's a philosophical question. Do you think that someone that ran for president that said, "I am going to do all in my power to rid this country of all the federal programs, regulations, and restrictions." would ever have a chance of getting elected?

And do you want me to post some photos of the Ross Barnett Reservoir that I took today?

Please take the time to comment.
