McCain can now officially go straight to hell

I can't believe McCain chose this nimrod Palin. Somehow she, with her two years of experience as governor of Alaska, is more qualified than Obama. And by the way, it's not at all out of the realm of possibility that McCain should drop dead while in office; he is an OLD MAN. So this horse's ass could well wind up president! I was on the McCain email list, out of curiosity into his opinions and whatnot, but tonight in reaction to an email announcing his choice of Palin, I unsubscribed and wrote the following into the comments field:

I am offended and horrified by McCain's choice of Palin as his running mate. As a woman who believes the government should stay out of my personal decisions like whether to have a child, I will now most definitely NOT be casting my vote for McCain, and certainly not for Palin as running mate, on Election Day 2008.

I feel so completely disenfranchised from this election, I could cry. And either way, it ends badly. Biden is a crappy (sexist) choice too, and I hate Obama for taking the primary away from Hillary.

I'm seriously considering voting for (a) Hillary Clinton as a write-in candidate, or (b) the Libertarian candidate, the boob Bob Barr.

Un-Bun-Me Please

This has nothing to do with yarn, and it's political and will alienate some people who come down on the other side of the issue, and I regret that, but I believe this stuff is important, and I didn't work for seven years at Planned Parenthood for nothing. Here's the very first non-creepy-horrible-propagandist abortion blog by a woman with a bun in the oven:

What to Expect When You're Aborting

She's just talking about her own experience, what her visits to the local PP are like and what she's going through, and I think it's about damned time.

Also, is McCain really going to pick a running mate who's against legal abortion? Is he fucking INSANE?
