Arrrrrrrr, Matey’s!

Tomorrow is International Talk like a Pirate Day.  I, for one, am excited to have fun and think about something other than election 2008 for a change.  I do not know how many people know about this great day of wearing an eye patch and drinking some grog, but I keep getting surprised at how many people say they do know when I mention it.

I found out about it at work.  I have some coworkers who like to do silly thing at times.  Once we created an accent which was a blend of things.  We referred to it as our snobby bithcery voices.  It was fun while it lasted because our boss told us that some coworkers were annoyed and we would have to stop it.  By then it was a bad habit, but we did survive and go back to boring work ethics.

Fast forward to some ongoing frustrations at work due to a new computer system and I started saying “Curses!” as a joke so as not to swear.  Well, my coworker, Cheryl, started saying “Arrrrrrr” after I’d do it and we’d giggle and just went into this whole Pirate theme.  One day when I was the only one left in the office at the end of the day, I decided to look up some pirate pics and signs online to print out and put up in my and a couple of others cubicles.  I found some great stuff, but I also came upon the website http://www.talklikeapirate.com/piratehome.html.  I think everyone should check it out and consider wearing an eye patch to work and saying Arrrrrrrr alot.  Also, it’s Friday so you should stop off at the bar for a glass of grog (rum) and maybe at home with the sweetie, throw in a little sexual inuendo:

10 . Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?

9. Have ya ever met a man with a real yardarm?

8. Come on up and see me urchins.

7. Yes, that is a hornpipe in my pocket and I am happy to see you.

6. I’d love to drop anchor in your lagoon.

5. Pardon me, but would ya mind if fired me cannon through your porthole?

4. How’d you like to scrape the barnacles off of me rudder?

3. Ya know, darlin’, I’m 97 percent chum free.

2. Well blow me down?

And the number one pickup line for use on International Talk Like a Pirate Day is …

1. Prepare to be boarded.

Bonus pickup lines (when the ones above don’t work, as they often won’t)

They don’t call me Long John because my head is so big.

Wanna shiver me timbers?

I’ve sailed the seven seas, and you’re the sleekest schooner I’ve ever sighted.

Brwaack! Polly want a cracker? … Oh, wait. That’s for Talk Like a PARROT Day.

That’s the finest pirate booty I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Let’s get together and haul some keel.

That’s some treasure chest you’ve got there.

In case you don’t know, Phillip J. Berg (www.obamacrimes.com) has filed a lawsuit alleging that Barack Obama is ineligible to be President.  Prior to the convention, I had high hopes for this.  I can only vote for a democrat if Obama is off the ticket.  I want to vote for my democratic convictions.  I want a candidate I believe in and trust.  It wouldn’t even necessarily have to be Hillary Clinton.  Although in saying that, I can’t imagine under what scenario it would not be her.  It would again be unfair if she were not a replacement if Obama stepped down.  If the democratic party finally grew a brain and took out the loser candidate, I would vote the ticket with the D.  I know that sounds crazy to Obama supporters. 

That said, at this point, I am thinking that 2008 is lost.  I am an eternal optimist.  I really am.  I believe that you never give up.  So what would happen at this point with only about 6 weeks left in the election if Obama was out due to the lawsuit or and indictment in Operation board games.  First question, who replaces him?  The genious pick of course is Clinton.  There would be those who would argue it should be Biden.  The problem is would my party be smart?  I don’t see how.  They have not been smart all year.  They had a workhorse and were willing to risk the race on a showhorse who hasn’t run a big race. 

I just don’t see how anyone could win this thing now, no matter what this late in the game.

I would love to get feedback on what everyone thinks about the odds of a democratic win if Obama had to be removed as nominee this late in the race!  What do you think?

I have been a democrat all my life, with one exception when I voted for a republican Governor.  In that election, I did vote for who I thought was the better candidate.  He won and I think he did a great job as Governor and I never regretted the choice.

This year I have been on opposing sides from the man I love.  We had dated for a couple years and then we split up for a while.  We got back together in March.  This was unfortunate timing to be on a break because of the election and we are both very political people.  I keep thinking that if we were together the whole time then he’d have a better understanding of what went on and what my thought process was.  It’s funny because when preparing for our first date after our split, I was very nervous.  I wanted to talk politics with him, but also afraid that if the subject came up (because I thought he was probably supporting Obama) that it would be our first and last redate.  Well, it did come up.  He mentioned something and I said, “Oh, here we go, what could be our first and last date.”   Well, no.  It was great.  He supported Obama.  I supported Hillary.  It was a great debate and it was not polarizing.

So fast forward to now.  This is so hard for me.  I have decided that I have to vote for McCain.  John McCain is the one I trust and I cannot make this completely about issues, supreme court justice appointments, or Row vs. Wade.  There is so much more at stake.  The big picture is that things must change.  The primary process must be more fair.  The Democratic party must be stripped bare and rebuilt with leaders who really uphold those issues and values in every way.  I will not set the bar for President this low!  It is ridiculous. 

Anyway, my boyfriend is a loyal democrat.  He would never think to vote out of party.  Not ever and not for any reason.  I know this.  We have tried to not talk politics, but of course it’s in our blood.  In the past 3 weeks, we have had some very heated debates.  Yesterday for the first time, although it turns out it has been on both of our minds for a while, we talked about breaking up.  Over Obama and McCain!  My brain says that would be retarded!  That 10 years from now, I’ll have to think, wow, my relationship ended because of Barack Obama or John McCain, but keep in mind I have to blame Obama because this would not even be a problem if Obama was not the nominee.  If it were Hillary or any other of the democratic candidates, we would be together as democrats.

I have had to end a friendship this year, which is something I never thought I would do over politics.  Unfortunately he was a friend who continued to make sexist comments about Sarah Palin and blaming stupid women for the election problems and I had warned him the last time not to do it again.  Sadly once Palin was nominated he became very insulting to me as a woman and we are not friends and will not be ever again.  If I know that he thinks I am stupid because I am a woman, well, then I don’t need friends like that.

How will I get through this with my boyfriend?  I want to believe that this is temporary.  The election will happen and at some point we get past it.  I think about 2000 and I never thought I would get over that stolen election, but I did.  I reminded my boyfriend of that and he agreed, but he sees it very different this time.  The funny thing is that I should be the one who would be the most upset about a con man being in the White House and I have an easier time with him supporting Obama than he has with me supporting McCain.  I realized last night just how much it bothers him that I will risk those Supreme Court appointments and Roe vs. Wade and drilling, and war.  He just cannot understand why I see Obama as a con man when he so clearly doesn’t.  He also sees years of fighting no matter which one is President because one of us will be very unhappy.  This is very hard. 

At this point, I would give just about anything for something to happen where Obama is out.  I don’t care what it is.  I guess I need to pray daily for thast Berg lawsuit to shake everything up, but we’re getting down to the wire.

How many relationships have been lost or are in turmoil over election 2008?  I have heard women say that they will not tell their husbands, but will secretly vote McCain in November.  How does that effect the polls?  How many people are not truthful when the pollsters call?  Should I have kept this secret?  Should I lie and say I’ve changed my mind and then vote for McCain and never admit that I did?  I can’t.  I am a woman who speaks her mind.

This makes me think of James Carville and Mary Matalin.  Hmmmmmm.  They make it work.  Can they help?

We will need a poll after the election to see how many loves/friends were lost to this disaster election!

Today was chock full of rumors if you read many anti-obama blogs!  The fact that McCain is ahead of Obama in all the polls and taking over a few states is causing quite a flurry.  Many of the rumors just make a person want to pull up a chair and grab their popcorn and watch the drama unfold.  The rumors of the day are ones I really hope are not true!

Rumor #1 Biden is preparing to step down due to medical reasons and Hillary will be the VP Pick.

Oh, please no!  I have never wanted Hillary to be VP!  Never.  I think Obama is a crook so why would it matter who his VP pick is?  He is still a crook!  I don’t care if he could get the pope on his ticket (although the pope is pro life so there are many angry dems in that case), it will not make Obama not a crook!

Rumor #2 Clinton gave Obama lots of good advice when they met for lunch yesterday.

Ok, somehow I just don’t think so.  Bill isn’t going to help Obama without a public apology for how he and his wife were treated during the primary!  I certainly hope Bill gave him alot of great advice-wink, wink!  What might he have told Obama?  Hmmmmm.  Maybe he told him to make fun of McCain’s age, or Palin periodically feeling down.  Maybe he told him thta with women all you need to do is tell them what to do and they’ll go along with it.  Time will tell, but I am sure Bill told Obama something, but how helpful it was, well, you can’t convince me of that any more than you could convince me to vote for Obama!

Rumor #3-Palin will step down.

Now this one is funny.  That will not happen!  She has energized the party and McCain and she would step down???  Never gonna happen.  This rumor is just a democrat fantasy!

These rumors are funny and will go on for months no doubt!  These are not to be worried about.  There is enough real stuff out there that you don’t need to make stuff up!

     I heard that Hillary will be out campaigning for Obama next week.  I was not happy to hear that!  I would much prefer she just hide out until November, while scheming under the radar to have Obama exposed for the fraud he is.  I was angry because I keep thinking that Hillary will put her country before her party and be willing to sacrifice her career for the safety of this country.  I truly believe she loves this country enough to do so.

    After having thought about it, I am not upset anymore.  Last night I saw the update on Phillip J Berg’s website, www.obamacrimes.com, and realized that Hillary is not out campaigning for Obama.  She is out campaigning for herself on the sly.  Of course she would know about the lawsuit and that Obama and the DNC has been served!  There is not a chance that she would not have run across someone who would have told her about, if she didn’t know already. 

     What would be the best action for Hillary right now?  Should she denounce Obama and the Democrats?  What if she did that and then he had to withdraw because of the lawsuit?  She couldn’t  then jump in and run as a democrat after having gone against her party.  That is not an option.  Does she insult down ticket dems and not support them?  She can’t.  If McCain wins she needs them and if she were to have to step in last minute as nominee, she needs them.  She must stay a democrat just in case.  Can she stand up for Sarah Palin?  Not directly.  She definitely won’t be attacking her either.  How can she support this woman she may go up against in the future, either in 2008 or 2012.  No Hillary is a smart lady and she is doing what she needs to do.

     I am now going to support her campaigning whole heartedly.  I won’t look at it as campaigning for Obama.  I will look at it as a round about way of campaigning for herself.  She is being visible.  She is being the democrat.  She is still supporting the issues she cares about.  Obama is just a sidebar.  She is staying prepared in case she needs to step up and I hope and pray that is exactly what happens.  I keep realizing what a genious Hillary Rodham Clinton is and I will continue my support for her.  I will watch for updates on the lawsuit and believe in good winning over evil.  Most of all I will believe that we will have either President Hillary Clinton or President John McCain elected this year and I can feel safe with either one and respect and admire either one and in the end, things will be ok.

     Just a quick note to say thank you to all others who, like me, are bad democrats.  For me this election year is just too important at this time in history to trust to an unqualified, inexperienced president.  I am certain that this has been as hard for all democrat PUMAs as it was for me.  Many tears have been shed this year for my country, for my party, for Hillary clinton and the divisive nature of election year 2008 (which I am pretty sure if made into a movie, will be a horror flick).  I so much appreciate all of you for being strong and not willing to fall in line.  I am seriously worried about the state of my country and became terrified of the thought of Barack Obama as our leader.  We must not allow that to happen.  Thank you for crossing party lines to vote for John McCain or if you just can’t quite go there, for sitting this one out and rejecting the nominee.  Of course please know that my blog name of baddemocrat is really just for fun.  I know that we are the real patriots, putting country before party, to be the greatest democrats that exist!

    How I looked forward to election year 2008!  Friends have referred to me as a “political geek”, which I love!  I love a good political debate and I also usually have a really great handle on what is going on in the world of American politics.  It ain’t pretty, that’s for sure!  This year is pretty damn ugly!  I hope we never have another one like it!

     I was so ready for that democrat being in the white house!  Slam dunk, right?  No brainer?  Dems in a landslide.  Well, that old saying is true about when you assume: ass=u+me.  It shows how fitting the donkey is for the democratic party to have as their symbol!  Do you think maybe if we got a new symbol, the dems could actually win the White House?  No.  It is not the donkey’s fault.  It is the fault of those leaders who can’t lead!

     So my 2008 story went like this.  Sometime during summer of 2007, I saw Barack Obama on Larry King.  I have to admit I was somewhat impressed.  He seemed so charming and like a breath of fresh air.  I was kind of for Hillary Clinton and had campaigned for Kerry/Edwards, but started entertaining helping Barack Obama.  As time went by, I was really torn about who I would vote for in my Caucus.  I just could not decide between Hillary clinton, John Edwards and Barack Obama.  My Caucus was February 5th, 2008 so about 3 weeks before I decided that I really had to methodically figure out the best person for the job.  What did I do?  I looked at each candidate’s website.  I looked at each one’s voting record.  I compared where they stood on the issues.  Immediately I realized that basically I am hiring someone for a job and I should choose who is most qualified and who I turst the most to do the job.  I compared resumes.  I threw Obama’s out right away.  That was a joke, right?  That was how I saw it.  I wasn’t sure what was going on, but to me it was a joke that the guy was even running!  Not to mention that it seemed to me he had a down graded version of Clinton’s platform.  Between Edwards and Clinton, I decided that Hillary was more qualified, would secure universal health care for the country, had a record of getting things done, and I trusted her the most.  Hillary it was!  Still would be if it was up to me!!!  For length purposes, I won’t go into my caucus horror story, except to say I believe there was fraud here and Obama won my state.  I was shocked.  I decided that I must be missing something in this Obama character.  I mean really, everyone talks about him like he is a Saint!  I kept digging for evidence that Obama was this great guy, but I could never find it.  Anywhere.  I only found evidence that something wasn’t right about this guy!  Well, we all know what happened as time went by.  No vetting, no MSM pieces on Obama that aren’t fluff pieces, sexism, racism, and DNC disenfranchisement and corruption.  I am so stunned.  I feel so knowlegable on Obama that I could write a book!  I tell friends and family, some of whom think I am nuts because “Why wouldn’t that be on the news?  Can’t be true.”  I am now at the point where I cannot listen to or watch Barack Obama and I make up little nicknames every single day on the guy! 

     It has been a costly year for me personally.  I have had to give up a couple of friends who have attacked me personally as a woman and I will not tolerate that.  I have never personally attacked them for who they are!  I am struggling to maintain a relationship with my boyfriend of 3 years, who is not a strong Obama, but will vote for him because he is a loyal democrat.  He just cannot understand why I can’t get on board and why I would vote for the prolife, SCOTUS appointments of McCain.  I try to explain it to him, but I seem to lose him when I start naming all the terrorist ties!  I also lost the party I have loved for my whole life!  I am not sure if I will return to that party ever either!  I hope I can after there is a massive housecleaning (with bleach)!  Time will tell.  In the meantime I have some to terms with voting for John McCain.  He is a man I trust and respect and the alternative is unthinkable to me.  I absolutely will not accept Barack Obama into the white house! 

     I have gained some things, too, though.  I am now forever a PUMA.  I will always vet my candidate myself and I have learned that it is always a good idea to pay attention to what the other side is doing and who they are!  I do hope to recover soon from this case of demcratic diarrhea from the DNC, you know, that shit is really running, so I can finally feel better!
