Up until now during this election I’ve kept my feelings, beliefs, and opinions pretty much to myself (in this blog) BUT Election Day is drawing closer and the race is closer than I thought it would be.   I don’t expect anyone who reads my blog to be swayed by anything I write – I assume you have already made up your mind.  Actually I can’t imagine anyone NOT knowing at this point who they would vote for.  I’ve known exactly who I would vote for in every election I’ve ever participated in whether it be local or national, I guess when I make up my mind, I don’t usually change it!

However, just in case there are some lingering Latino voters out there or some Republicans who are offended by Romney’s tactless and rude remarks, you might enjoy watching this clip by Rosie Perez.  And if you are a Democrat and planning to vote accordingly, you’ll love it!

A big thank you to fellow blogger, Spinny Liberal for posting this video. I saw it and just had to reblog!!

About a month ago, Senate candidate Todd Aiken dropped a couple of verbal bombshells in the midst of the presidential campaign much to the dismay of MOST Republicans.  He declared  to the world that a woman’s body has the ability to often prevent conception after a legitimate rape.  Like the shot heard ’round the world, the news wires lit up, the pundits fell over themselves head-shaking and finger-pointing at the bad boy from Missouri.  The RNC said it would not spend any money on ads for him, Governor Romney called for his resignation from the race and on and on.  BUT, Aiken did not withdraw from the Senatorial race and now that it is apparent that many of the states Republicans assumed they would win, may go the way of the Democrats, it has become a mandate to secure as many House seats as possible.   

Missouri must be saved – But how to do this now?  Romney can’t back down, the RNC isn’t going to back down too much BUT wait, there are surrogates that can speak.  What a terrific idea- We (The Republican Party) will order some of the well-known Party members who are NOT running for anything anymore to lend their support to this weak link.  Better to have a Republican in the Senate seat regardless of how crazy his must be than having a Democrat sitting there.  And so the Party faithful have been trotted out ALL IN ONE WEEK, to stand behind Todd Aikin in the hope that their mere presence will whitewash that bad taste in everyone’s mouth and mind.  

So Newt, Rick and Jim hung their principles (if they ever had any) in the closet , packed their bags and hit the road to campaign for Todd Aiken.  Uh huh, that’s what I think!

Politics has always made strange bedfellows, but this is so transparent and very, very strange!
