Mamma Mia, Here I Go Again!

It's been long. Wayyyy too long. But really, honestly and sincerely, I had *nothing* to write about! And how could I? It's not like there's anything major happening that I'd want to write about. Life's same old same old, and how often can you read about the same stuff? Right? Meanwhile, I've been lazying around, doing some introspection. After all the deep thinking and the mind rest, I have come to the conclusion that I can't sit idle anymore. I've thoroughly enjoyed giving my over-worked brain a break, but now it aches for something to do. So I've been actively researching for Post-graduate programs, and sending out my CVs to companies. Now, I'm actually looking forward for something to do, and so glad I decided to take a break from the rut. At least now, I know what I want to do, and am really motivated to pursue that goal and don't feel like I'm being forced into something. Some decisions, although controversial, *are* the right ones after all!

Anyway, in my "thinking time", I've been following the US Presidential Election campaigns. This year, its been amusing more than anything else. I've gone through all the debates, the videos, the advertisements, the speeches, the spoofs, the analysis, the polls....everything! And there's ONE person I want to comment on....

Sarah Palin is an airheaded ditz of an excuse for a politician. She has NO clue what she's talking about. She should stay put where she belongs...on some hockey field with her minivan and children's bags. Mainstream politics is not for her. Even though she may have seemed like a "breath of fresh air" according to McCain, now she just seems like a liability who falters and sputters in every interview. She has never answered a question directly without making a mess of matters, she has no idea how the US economy works, has no experience working or even interacting with world leaders, she can't go through a single interview without using the words "maverick", and the most annoying thing is, she goes around with the look and image of miss goody-two-folksy-homely-shoes which makes me want to puke! I wonder if she even knows where "Aye-Rack" (Iraq) is or what are the issues with Iran. Anyway, this lady has been my one-woman-entertainment for these last few months, so her interviews and public appearances are very much welcome!

Anyway, waiting eagerly for the elections to be held. The polls show the results already, but want to see the look in Palin's face once the final results are out. I bet her maverick self will have some priceless expressions!
