Thursday Thoughts

I think that if I hear one more negative political ad I am going to snap. Politics is a dirty, corrupt and a shady business, but quite I honestly I don't care what one campaign digs up about another. I would rather they just say what they want to do for our future. There is one ad I hear almost everyday on the bus about John Stephen. It goes something like: "John Stephen's campaign manager stalked a women and said that she deserved to be raped. Wouldn't you fire a stalker? John Stephen refused to." Don't get me wrong, John Stephen has some questionable things about his past, but this ad doesn't even say who the other candidate is. After Tuesday it will all be over and I can watch TV or listen to the radio in peace. I must say, my favorite ad is the one about the Democrat running in West Virginia who shoots the Cap and Trade bill with a sniper rifle... wait? What? Did I seriously just type that?

I think that it was awesome that President Obama went on the Daily Show last night. Now, I supported Obama when he ran and I still do. (Anyone who claims Obama is a socialist, really doesn't understand what socialism is.) I understand that achieving goals takes a long time and anyone who expected instant change was being unrealistic. At the same time, I was also really pleased that Jon Stewart critiqued Obama about the past two years. That takes a lot of balls. I must say it was nice to see Obama answer questions intelligently without stumbling like an idiot. Lets face it, Bush could have never done that. Obama spoke about how getting laws passed isn't black and white and it is really important to realize that just setting the foundations for the future is important. I feel as though everyone is quick to point out everything that the Obama administration hasn't done, but they neglect what they have done. 

Lastly, I think the fortune cookies from HoCo provide some of the best entertainment on campus. I got one that was actually the greatest pickup line ever: "Could I get some directions? (To where?) To you heart." The is fucking poetry. 

Stay classy, not UMassy.
