Oh Politics!

Found some interesting political articles that I'd like to direct you to.

First, an encouraging post called Conservatives Want Republicans to Lose. I'm sure you can get the drift of that article! It's a breath of fresh air that some Educated and Prominent Conservatives are disgusted and worried about the Radical Republicans that are holding positions in our government right now.

One little snippet, but make sure to check out the article to read what other Conservatives had to say on the topic:

BRUCE FEIN: Democrats, for their part, likewise place party above the Constitution, but their party loyalty at least creates an incentive to frustrate Bush'’s super-imperial presidency. This could help to restore checks and balances. For the foreseeable future, divided government is the best bet for preserving both the letter and spirit of the Constitution. If Democrats capture the House or Senate in November 2006, the danger created by Bush with a Republican-controlled Congress would be mitigated or eliminated.

Also a scary interview with Stephen Baldwin and the reason why I have my doubts and reservations with the whole idea of "religion" - not that everyone is this obscenely retarded, but there are a fair amount out there...

Straight from the horse's mouth: I represent the new breed of Christians, baby, that are gettin' ready to kick ass in the name of the Kingdom.

Hmm, okee dokee Stephen, because the old breed definitely didn't try to kick some ass in the name of the Kindom with, say, a couple million years of WARS?? Right.

Lastly, completely non-political and user-friendly, unless you're a Bengals', Browns' or Ravens' fan of course, the History of The Terrible Towel.

Have a fantabulous Thursday, y'all. Wish me luck, I take my GREs on Saturday... *gulp. You do gotta love it though, the Only school that I'm interested in that requires the GRE just happens to be my top choice. Life loves me in that way.

Anyone have any funny jokes or tidbits, feel free to leave them for me! This day feels impossibly long and horrible and I'm exhausted so I need a boost to get through the day. Possibly due to the fact that I had to stay up to watch Project Runway and then woke up super early to get to work early because I'm Swamped and have to leave early for a meeting today. Usually I would just leave work early and not worry about it, but I can't afford to right now. Argh.

Thanks Brett! I feel like it's been forever since I've taken a standarized test and now their all on computers! Yikes! No crossing out answers, circling key words in the question, making yourself notes on the question, jotting down question marks next to answers you're sure about and smiley faces next to answers you think could be right. And worse of all, no going back and changing answers you've rethunk or gotten hints on later in the test! This will be a challenge for me. I bought a practice book and I almost didn't get the one with the CD-Rom, but now I'm glad I did because at least I'm getting the hang of the computer testing thing, kind of...

Can I demonstrate the ass kicking on him? And while I'm at it, knock some sense into his head?

Probably a lost cause...
