One from John

Hi everyone,

Though Sarah may no longer be 5324 miles from Austin, I unfortunately, still live on the other side of the world… Since Sarah left Germany to go back to Texas, I have been rather sad and mopey. I realized how well we work together and how much support we really give each other when I went to the grocery store and after wandering around for 2 hours left with Dr. Pepper and breakfast food. I need her her to help me! 🙂 I don’t want to waste everyones time though with my endless complaining, so instead I thought a bit of commentary on the ongoing presidential race might be… I don’t know… interesting? I know we normally use this blog to keep people informed about what is going on in our lives, but hey, just thought some commentary might be a nice change of pace.

Alright… So on the Republican side we have The Mormon, The Evangelical, The 9/11 guy, The guy who was once in the military, and the crazy guy who will never win… On the democratic side we have The Woman, The Black Dude, and a Wannabe John F Kennedy. The question that fits for almost all of these candidates is… “Is America really ready for ‘X’ to be the president?” Is America ready for a Mormon, a black man, a woman, an evangelical? How about we elect a extra-conservative Mormon black woman? We can just get all of the minority issues out of the way in 4 short years.

Now realistically, There are only about a few possible outcomes in the primaries, Hillary or Obama, and McCain, Huckabee or Guiliani. Now if you know me you know that I am personally an Obama fan, I believe that he is the only candidate with half a shot of re-uniting America. The country is so divided on issues that we can’t get anything done. The right is further right then they have ever been, and the left is further left. We need someone who is the candidate of the great American middle; a candidate who can unite Washington and can get things done because of it.

Probable outcome? As usual, we will have to pick the lesser of two evils. Hillary or Huckabee. 😦 I don’t trust Clinton, she is way to much of a politico, and I don’t trust Huckabee because he is too conservative to unite Americans which is what we really need. This whole situation makes me very sad.

OK… enough politcs… on to something much more funny. I guess its still kinda politics, but its funny nonetheless.
