This may be the dumbest ad campaign ever

Posted by Raznor

Okay, so the whole point of this ad campaign is that when Burger King stopped selling the Whopper for one day, people freaked out, since the Whopper is apparently the greatest burger ever made by man. And by "freaked out", I mean, "were weirded out that a major fast food chain inexplicably stopped selling their signature item".

Post Iowa

Posted by Raznor

As I said, I was hoping Edwards would win it in Iowa, and I still think Edwards is the best candidate, but still, I can't help being excited by Obama and the prospect of a black president.

I can't tell if Obama's rhetoric means he doesn't understand the partisan rancour of Washington and the level of corruption of the beltway, and will end up, a la Reid and Pelosi, caving in to every Republican demand, or if it means he understands it perfectly, and has the ability to package progressive change so that the establishment will accept it. I hope for the latter, but the last 7 years of politics have left me quite cynical with politics in general.

Still, I can't help but feel inspired by the Obama candidacy. It's an emotion that has no rational thought behind it, but it's there.

What I'm Hoping For

Posted by Raznor

I really hope Edwards wins in Iowa, and then ultimately the nomination and election. Amanda pretty much summarizes why.

But beyond that, I'm hoping for an Edwards/Obama ticket in November. Then if they pick George Clooney as Secretary of State, we will have the most handsome Administration in the history of time, previously held, of course, by Kennedy.
