I’m going to be Obama’s Vice President…

not! But you’re here reading this, so you must have thought it was possible. So, what does this say about our society? It says to me that we’re turning into a bunch of people who will believe just about anything if we see it on the internet. It says to me that the way we make the big important decisions these days is based more on a person’s popularity than on their credentials. It says to me that a large segment of our population, (the controlling interest, so to speak), has decided that it is no longer necessary to follow logic and good sense. It really needs to quit saying things to me.

Let’s send text messages to my supporters to let them know who I choose for the vice presidential candidate. Senator Obama’s latest move to keep the media interested in his campaign is so trendy, so cool. That’s why I hate it. I don’t want a cool president. I want a president who knows how to stop a war and bring the economy back into balance. Hell, how do I know that Obama won’t be too busy texting his bff to pay attention to the important stuff?

And another thing, I’m not one of those super-patriotic types, but I am really put off by this thing with the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. I’m not voting for anyone to lead this country if they have no allegiance to it. That’d be like putting Satan in charge of Heaven. Or well, something like that. I don’t know of a great analogy for it, but it really seems like a stupid move. I’m wondering if maybe, Obama’s people have pulled one of those General’s Fried Chicken debauchles like the one in Undercover Brother. Have they been tampering with the Starbuck’s? The key is mass production, you know.

Alright, so I’m obviously not a supporter. This puts me on the horns of a dilemma. Who do I vote for? I’m a democrat, so I’m not voting for McCain. But, as an American, I cannot vote for Barack Obama. I just can’t do it. As a last resort, I’m considering a write-in. I just need to decide whether or not it will be Morgan Freeman, Bill Cosby or Al Gore. Since I don’t use text messages, I’ll have to post my final decision here on the blog. So, stay tuned. I’m sure you’ll be on pins and needles until I announce it.

Until next time…
