Today was another _ _ _ _ day. Not bad, not good just _ _ _ _. Whatever that means.
I finally got enrolled in classes and with the UK so now I can return to being a normal guy that runs around campus sleeping in meetings LOL.
I lied about watching the RNC as much as I did the DNC... well actually I didn't because I had to go back and watch a few of the big speeches, as my duties to the Kernel and to my people took me away a night or two. I did see the most important stuff though. More than likely tomorrow I'll lay into Sarah Palin's speech, I have already heard it was a little "shrill". That term was dissected for about 5 minutes by CNN pundits in relation to it being a term you only hear with females... shrill is defined as high pitched and difficult to take on the ears. I would be extremely worried of Barack Hussein gave a shrill speech.
Speaking shrill, I am finding it funny at the media's insistence on remaining fair and balanced. I have noticed this a lot lately because a good deal of what is reported on is forced into being covered straight down the middle, and some things like this presidential race just aren't things you can cover equally.
For Barack Obama is much more interesting than John McCain. Not that John McCain isn't interesting, but Barack Obama is black, a successful politician, an author, a brilliant mind, a hooper, and all kinds of other stuff. John McCain is a maverick, former POW, um, dang... see I'm already out of stuff. Ok not really, but you get the point.
The interesting thing about this election is that if you look at the projection and the maps it is pretty clear that this country is really two countries. One country is where people live and mingle and have to work in a diverse world, and the other where you wake up to people who look like you, think like you, and are fine with things the way they are, whatever that may mean.
All I am saying is I live in a state where a lot of people go to a city with a population over 100k and it is the first time they have sustained interaction with black people, or anybody else in the rainbow for that matter. A lot of the stuff I and others fight for is stuff I grew up with that I think of as common sense, but nobody challenges thought here so the status quo remains.
Man. I'm fired up. I really wanna see this Palin speech!
