Time Management Is Not My Strong Point

First, a personal note...I feel I should apologize, because I have a lot of things I want to get off my chest, but not enough time to share them. And I really should call my girlfriend in about 15 minutes, since it's already kind of late--I mean, she's much more important and nobody reads this damn thing anyway--(where does three hours of time go??), so I'll try to remember to get to everything I don't get to tonight in future blogs over the next several days. Part of why I like blogging so much is that this is an exercise in discipline,discipline being important to a writer, so the blog should be done regularly but damn, who are these people who supposedly have full-time jobs, families, hobbies and still find time to blog every day? Is this the great technoliterary myth of the 2000's?

Back to the Primary Race

Did you see what happened there? I wasted nine minutes on that namby pamby, wussy-ass apology for NOTHING! How Democratic of me!

I haven't written about John Kerry, the 2004 elections and the main issues of the presidential race much lately and I will definitely get back into it. All I want to say for now is that I swear I will kick John Kerry's patrician ass myself if he manages to convince John McClain to become his running mate. I know, I know, it would be an unbeatable, bipartisan ticket, a first in the modern era of presidential politics I do believe, but the ramifications for liberal Democrats and presidential politics could be disastrous. How would McCain vote in the case of a tie? Would the Democrats be dragged even farther to the right? Would die hard liberals be more tempted to vote for Nader, further weakening Kerry's position?

I said it a month ago, I'll say it again: the answer for Kerry is John Edwards. Swallow the ego, do what's best for the ticket, make a challenge in the South and go kick Bush's ass in November. I think it's a no-brainer, which means the Dems will undoubtedly hem and haw over it right up until the next to last day of the convention (not that anybody would really pay too much attention, since most of the convention won't be on TV).

The Big Tease

Next up I'll write about pornography, drugs and video games. Well, probably not, but I need a big opening weekend if I want to franchise this blog and do well in the foreign markets. Stay tuned, my time is up and I'm getting ready to pick up the phone...
