"And that's NOT a waffle!"
So, for Political Science I have to do a report on both the DNC and the RNC, and was refered to the DNC website (since, obviously, it already happened).
I went all over the website
. I looked at every issue. I went to related websites
. I even poured over the words
of the man himself
Know what I found?
NOTHING. Not a single thing even remotely resembling a stand on any issue. He says plenty about "Bush did this", "Bush did that", but nothing about what HE would do differently. You know it's sad when even the candidate is playing the "Anyone but Bush!" game.
Also, I finally saw the video
of the little bra-- kid who founded "Kids for Kerry." Watch the video and look at her expressions and hand gestures. This is a kid who loves
attention; if her parents had said "Laura Bush is an excellent role model!" she'd be speaking at the Republican National Convention about how, under Bush, she learned how to write the very speech she was presenting.
I know when I was 12 years old, I wouldn't have been able to tell the difference between one president's stance on public school funding, and I certainly wouldn't have done the research on whether more or less funding made public schools more or less effective. But 'children are the future'...

Lately, I've taken up my old love of craft-making, namely, naughty knitted items. You wouldn't believe what a few perverted knitters have come up with: knitted edible undies, knitted thongs, knitted string bikinis. While the most risque I've gone, or will go, is a knitted halter top (oh, how daring I!), when you're looking for a patern for knitted wearables, you stumble across a few doosies. When I found a patern for a knitted man-thong, I couldn't help thinking that things had gone too far.
Now, I'm all for hand-made lingerie, especially when it only costs $4 a skein of yarn. But you have to think: What age group does your typical knitter come from? I can only imagine a room-full of grandmothers in a nursing home knitting bikinis (extra-tight weave to make up for what gravity has bestowed), or, worse, thongs for their lover dears.
Hmmm, I may have taken that one a bit too far.
