What the…

Toby Keith says he’s a Democrat…what? Not only that, but he’s supporting Barack Obama in the coming presidential election. Wait…WHAT? I’m so confused!!!!

This is the guy that wrote the September 11th response song called “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American).” Here are some of the very democratic lyrics:

“Now this nation that I love/Has fallen under attack/A mighty sucker punch came flyin in/
From somewhere in the back/Soon as we could see clearly/Through our big black eye/
Man, we lit up your world/Like the 4th of july”

“Justice will be served/And the battle will rage/This big dog will fight/When you rattle his cage
And youll be sorry that you messed with/The u.s. of a./cause well put a boot in your ass
Its the American way”

The song is littered with those sorts of sentiments. Keith claims the song was “…was more patriotic than pro-war.” Um…we’ll put a boot in your ass, it’s the American way…that sound pretty damn pro-war to me.

Not only does Keith sing songs like this, he’s also the spokesperson for Ford trucks…you know, the HUGE ones with low gas millage that you see barreling down the street taking up a lane and a half just to get through…yeah, those. I mean, I know not all democrats are “green crusaders” so to speak, but they at least THINK about the environment every so often.

I’m all for Keith supporting Obama…if it’ll bring in some conservative voters to go the Obama route, more power to him. I just am pointing out a few inconsistencies that I see…I could be completely wrong here. I’m willing to admit that, I’m just not convinced.

ed Words!! Oh…and a rant on pastors??

Um yeah…one more reason to love John Edwards!!!!!!! Whoever wins the Democratic nod to run for president, here is your running mate! You gotta love a politician that is willing to make fun of them selves! Universal Haircare indeed! All these folks need to stop listening to their campaign managers and start being themselves and letting loose (ie: John Edwards, Al Gore)! Al Gore is an amazing speaker…I heard his “Inconvenient Truth” presentation…he has amazing passion, humor and just a presence on stage. If he had run his campaign like that, we may have someone different in the White House right now. I love an politician that is willing to come on a show like the Daily Show or the Colbert Report and mock themselves, or do a comedy bit…even if in real life they aren’t really that funny, and they’re just reading off a card, it says something about their character that they’re willing to do it!

Bob Dole was on The Daily Show during the 2000 election. I remember watching in my dorm room. Bob Dole made a joke about there being a tie and then he would take over and become president. I’ve remembered that line ever since…here’s the video (I can’t get it to embed, so you’ll have to go direct to the Comedy Central website to see it…)

I remember thinking, “Man…if Bob Dole is always this funny, I wouldn’t mind voting for him!” Of course, I don’t think I really would, but it is important to me to have a candidate who is a real person and who is willing to be themselves. I find that important in most leaders. I’ve had this discussion with lots of people in relation to pastors. I know a lot of pastors…comes from having gone to seminary. To me, one of the most important traits that a pastor should have is the ability to be themselves at all times. The types of pastors that are one person with their friends and family and a completely different person in the pulpit anger me to no end. Be yourselves!!! Hear that all you pastor types??? No one is sinless…no one is perfect. You shouldn’t pretend that you are. I am more able, and willing, to relate to a pastor who is a real person, who makes mistakes and who is not perfect. The sinless perfect pastor up on the pulpit dressed in white every Sunday who is a fake person around their parishioners and hides their real life is fake. I don’t want a fake person – I won’t believe you, and I won’t listen to you. Be yourself…Jesus was human, you can be too!!

Wow…this post started somewhere and went somewhere completely different…sorry about that folks! Enjoy it anyway!

Choices…


2008 Presidential Primaries

Okay…so here is my dilemma…well, it’s not really a dilemma anymore, and I guess that’s why it’s my dilemma.

I stared out this presidential season as I did the last one…supporting Dennis Kucinich. I know that he’s the longest shot on the democrat side, but I really like him and what he stands for, and so I support him. I planned to vote for him today, but he left the race…

…so, I move on to my 2nd choice, John Edwards. My husband is a huge supporter of Edwards, and he had me convinced before Kucinich even dropped out that he would be the best choice for the Democrats…so, I’m all set to vote for Edwards, but he left the race…

…so, I move on to my 3rd choice, Barak Obama. Does this seem to be getting ridiculous to anyone else? I like Obama, don’t get me wrong! He was choice #2 until Justin convinced me otherwise. I like Obama for president much better than I like Hilary Clinton for president!!! I just can’t handle living in a country where the presidency goes: Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton…we’re bordering on a monarchy here! As much as the candidates are talking about “change” and needing something new and fresh…think about it!

Anyway, I’m a Obama supporter. I think he’d do a great job, so I am voting for him today. I’d be really hesitant to vote Hilary for president if she ends up getting the presidential “nod”…but at this point, in my opinion anyway, anything is better than G-Dub!

Song lyric of the week…

"I bring you pain, the kind you can’t suffer quietly/Fire up your brain remind you inside you’re rioting/Society is slipping, everythings slipping away"
