Asparagus, red shepherd pepper, and yellow zucchini with long grain and wild rice and cod in dill, lime, salt, and garlic. That’s it. Very simple, very easy.
Other than that, I’m really trying to wrap my head around how McCain is leading in the latest polls… I mean, it’s mind-boggling that Bush can have basically zero support, the country is heading toward ruin, and people are still seriously considering voting for not just “more of the same“, but worse — I mean, really, do you want an unstable moron who’s main claim to fame came from being bottom of his class and then crashing his plane over and over until he got tossed in a tiger cage? Someone who’s obsessed with saber rattling and risky gambling when a pile of other nations are ready to pounce? Real bright. Part of me thinks there’s some grand polling/voting conspiracy, but realistically I think people may be that dumb.
Here in Canada there’s a federal election coming up at about the same time and the Conservative party has been running ridiculous — and very creepy — ads of Stephen Harper talking about how much he loves his kids (the section that starts at 3:30 in this clip is an example of what they’re running). Not a word about his politics, which certainly echoes the US way of running politics. I hope that people up here don’t buy it, but I’m afraid they might. Personally I couldn’t care less what a politician does in their private life. I’m not electing them to do the right thing for their family, I’m electing them to do the right thing for the country.
We have a great NDP Candidate in our riding that I hope will be re-elected.
