What a grand blogging day today was, just like yesterday. I was introduced to 4 new bloggers who answered the PoliQs flawlessly.
My Saturday Evening Post is brilliance and sarcasm at it's finest. Pushing Fifty Gently's POV from Canada was awesome. I'd love to see more people in other countries participate in the PoliQ. I am so looking forward to getting to know her delicious bloggy blog. Thailand Girl addressed concerns about foreign affairs with a slew of quotables. Little Merry Sunshine dished up fierce facts and a fast talkin' (writing) personality. A blog of note that we all know and love is Bubbsie's, who tossed out so many pearls of wisdom, I'm still reeling.
Bubbsie is the author of Sprawling Ramshackle Compound and my good friend, a truly amazing mensch with a heart, and family spun of gold, answered from the exquisitely personal, to the brilliantly objective. Lots of important facts and links. Callbacks to the past and what middle class Americans once had and how that's literally become a thing of the past. Bubbsie, you're the shit. We love him hard! Loved this quote: "It's like I told a coworker the other day: if you're more outraged by flag lapel pins and YouTube clips of angry black preachers than you are by the fact it costs you $3,000 a year to drive to work now, and you can't retire because you can't pay for health insurance, then I guess McCain is your man. Go home, pour yourself a stiff drink and listen to God Bless the USA a few more times until you numb the pain." Make like a mouse and click now!
My Saturday Evening Post, PS: We started blogdating instantly. He's tits, yo. He dished about the restoration of our civil liberties. This quote killed "wacky 18th century hippies, Jefferson, Adams, Madison, Franklin". MSEP also wrote about ending our occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan, oodles of facts about tax and debt relief for Americans who need it the most. Our fiscal crisis and where we're heading if McCain/Palin win. What struck me the most was the messages we're sending by electing these two shmeggeggies into office, as well as the message Palin's nomination sends to women. Run. Read. Now.
Pushing Fifty Gently, Oh, I like this dame. We've just begun our blog courtship. Jaliya wrote from the Canadian perspective, loved this one. She boils it down from the outside looking in. One of my favorite quotes, "As a Canadian citizen, I can’t think of many things more important than to contribute to our American neighbours’ awareness of how the rest of the world is holding its collective breath for their election’s outcome. Hit it, loverdeedos.
ThailandGal, Yuppers, I'm diggin' ha. One of my favorite quotes was "I believe any country is only as civilized as the way it treats all its citizens." Have truer words been spoken?! Nah. Thailand Girl gave us an eyeful regarding foreign policy, education, health care and economic equality. Another quote that resonated was this one, the antithesis of the republican party "I haven't been that affected but that doesn't matter. If any of us are affected, all of us are affected." Click riiiiiiiiiiiight now.
Little Merry Sunshine, Merry Little Sunshine is a woman. One of the questions asked was if she had kids. Her answer: "None that I know of". Moxie and humor. Love ha. Biggest issues, the economy, health care and the war. Outstanding facts. Comprehensive comparagraph re: O/B and M/P. Oh, wait and this quote kicks ass "Not to be funny, but McCain/Palin believe government should be small enough to fit inside my uterus." Make your Merry way over, my dears.
