but forgive me for using that dreaded word
We had a great time with our company--and they said they did too--but it's always nice to get your life back after entertaining for three days.

I can't believe SE is 21 (!!) already. Where does the time go?

But I am so proud of her. She said, and I quote, "Obama can suck it."

There's hope for our young people after all.

Come on, he hasn't done that poorly, just not up to expectations.

A lawyer who had been working for the CIA's general counsel came to give a lunch talk at our law school last week: His message was substantially, the current administration's National Security policies (in regards to Afghanistan/Pakistan, torture/interrogation, Military Commissions, Executive Powers, rendition, etc) differ little from Cheney's, and in some place even goes further into the Dark Side, which has Liberals and Human Rights Activists quite upset.

The analogy he specifically used was that Obama was Luke Skywalker and Cheney Darth Vader. I thought it was all in all quite informative.

That depends on whether you agree with anything he's done/doing/wants to do.

That's true. Well at least it looks like he's come around on the afore mentioned National Security issues.

But that's one issue of many.

And of course I certainly don't let Congress off the hook. I hate those bastards.

It's a start?

We deserve the system we voted for, I suppose.

I like the way D puts it. He says the problem with Congress is we each like our own Rep but hate all the others. I do like our Rep, but can't stand Pelosi et al.

Although we don't really like our Senators and just voted for them to keep the Dems from having the seats. (At least I did--D abstained because he couldn't bring himself to vote for either one.)
