Rant Time

"Let me tell you something about being the mayor of a small city - it's kind of like being a community outreach organizer, except you actually have responsibilities."
-Sarah Palin

"I didn't need focus groups and voter polls when I ran for mayor, because I knew the people. And I'm running now for the people."
-Sarah Palin

"I'm just a simple hockey mom."
-Sarah Palin

Um. Yes. This is exactly what I want in the White House. A hockey mom. Who the f cares about her daughter, I care that she thinks that running for mayor of a city of 6,500 is comparable to running for President. And not quite sure what is bothering the Republicans so much about Obama's 'community outreach' experience - it's not like he's running with that as his calling card. Not to mention her bashing the 'Washington Elite.' I'm so sick of hearing everybody talk about the Washington Elite - anyone running for President is Washington Elite, what do they think John McCain, 4-term United States Senator is?

Also, why is McCain the one casting stones at Obama for being an elitist for going to 'fancy schools?' Wasn't the goal of American educators to get students to become high achievers that deserve and earn a spot in those 'fancy schools?' I feel so frustrated whenever people get bashed for being elitists for valuing different things than the 'average American' - whatever that is. It's punishment for achieving more than someone else is able to - very Fahrenheit 451 (my favorite passage, when the chief is talking to Montag, talking about the 'boy who had all the answers - and how they hated him.'). Not to mention, McCain is the one who came from wealth, married into wealth, and has so many homes that he can't remember how many he has. Why is it whenever candidates try to 'relate to the common people,' they end up coming off as pompous assholes. Eat your arugula, visit your houses, don't cast stones at other peoples education or wealth.

Oh and no, Rudy Giuliani, just because Sarah Palin was the 'mayor of a city' does not mean that she would be able to handle 9/11 if it occured while she was President.

My God, she's the fucking governor of Alaska.

a lot has been happening lately, and i don't even know what to write. i got my license on monday (!) and i'm so happy. seriously, best feeling ever. went cruising with emily, and she's such a cutie. tried to go with emma, but that didn't work out so well. we got as far as the middle school parking lot, where these middle school boys were checking us out. i almost ran over their baseball. it was fun. i'm working 20 fucking hours this week, i almost feel grown up.

for job shadow i still haven't set up anything, but i might ask Dr. Marcella Sorg at UMaine, since she's one of only fifty forensic anthropologists in the US, which is cool. i don't know if she'll be doing anything interesting though. so we'll see.

i've just realized how stressful senior year is going to be. now that i'm interested in forensics, i actually have to do my science stuff. so i'm doing extra credit bio stuff, etc. next year i'm doubling up in chemistry and anatomy and physiology. then senior year i will have:
-AP english lit
-AP physics
-AP calculus
-french 5
-problems of democracy
-some PE credits or whatever
-and they might offer forensics senior year, so that. plus biotech at CATC.

isn't senior year supposed to be easy? i'm going for my license in 2 weeks, gah! i'm so excited!

fuck. i hate it when i'm woken up at insane hours of the morning by my family because hey, it doesn't matter that one person in the family still needs sleep. especially at my mom's house, which is both smaller and has thinner walls than my house. i am seriously considering trying to go back to staying with my dad full time, i hate switching houses so much.

so i just watched a speech that hillary is giving now in virginia, and she kept bashing bush, and then she said "even the republicans" (as if they were not worthy of her mentioning them) "understood that we were all in this together." now, i admire and respect her, but seriously? the republicans don't understand that "we're all in this together" (vaguely high school musical sounding, now that i think about it), but she CLEARLY does, as at every opportunity she is bashing them. it's getting freaking annoying,
