Is it bad that I totally called Obama replying to that woman's question about the new health care plan killing us all with his fabulous dry wit? Specifically saying that we don't have enough man power to go to each American citizen and ask them how they would like to die. Though that would provide jobs for the currently unemployed...Just an idea.

P.S. You chose Bud Light? Really, Obama? REALLY? Not because it's a "foreign" beer (it may have been purchased by a foreign company but it has maintained it's American identity of being watered down)...because it's a shitty beer.


"Cupcake Reach-around"? I love you Stephen Colbert (and writing team). That and "Jeremeh" made me laugh like crazy.

Tucker Carlson looked a lot like Gollum in that photo.


Unrelated, I'm going to DC for the weekend to hang with my big brother. Maybe we'll get a chance to go for drinks at the White House. If so, I'm asking for liquor.
arielarena: (Default)
me: What? No party?
Jeff: (Autoreply) DEBATE!
yay, Debates!
I'm at a debate party
but it's at my house
:-)
me: Sweet!
Jeff: John McCain looks like he's had the Botox
like, for serious
me: That's why he looks strange!
He's got wrinkles JUST above his eyes, that's it. Nothing on the upper forehead
Jeff: booo... economy is boring
...though important
me: "fundamentals" DRINK
You know what doesn't work: trickle down
Jeff: oooh... "Senator McCain and I agree..."
me: My friend just came in when Obama said "help homeowners" and was all "help homos"?
Joe whaterberger?
Jeff: brb
me: Joe the Plumber is Joe Sixpack's cousin.
McCain blinks like no other.
And he's a bit of an ass
I'm willing to pay taxes if I get free f-ing healthcare
Nicole says "Joe X Obama, their love is tax deductible"
Jeff: sorry
was sick, had to yak
boot and rally!
I'm back, baby!
me: Are you okay?
Jeff: (bad sushi)
I'm fine now
let's continue!
me: Oh, poor Jeffy
You may have missed McCain pretty much saying that Obama is a lying liar who lies
Jeff: aw, sadface!
I'll have to watch it later - it's Tivoing!
me: And he's decided to be folksy!
Jeff: "Waaaaah! You attacked my plan!!!"
me: This is like two middle school girls arguing over boys
Also, if I were Joe the Plumber I would want to kick McCain's ass for invoking my name incessantly.
They both seem rather asshole-ish tonight
Jeff: a little
but Obama is so much more academic and professor-y tonight
I dunno
not great, but not bad
he's proud of the racists that come to his rallies
me: I was wondering if he just said that
Wow.
Jeff: he just DID
(minus the racist part)
me: Dude, the people who go to McCain's rallies may be patriotic and whatnot but some dude totally yelled
"Let's kill him" at one so I think it's totally legit for Obama to not approve.
Jeff: oh, of course
me: I forgot what I was typing midsentence there STOP INVOKING SENATOR CLINTON OMG
Speaking of acorns, McCain is looking a bit squirrely tonight
Nicole has proposed that we move to Ohio for the next election so we can play with dials
Jeff: yay! Ayers!
me: "When I was 8 and McCain was probably 30"
Jeff: hehehe...
ooooh, he brought up Reagan!
nice
me: I'm currently distracted by a story Nicole is telling. What'd I just miss?
Jeff: Obama just said "JON, AYERS IZ NOT TRU" and John said "LIAR! HEZ HAVIN AYERSZ BEBEH"
me: Joe Biden is pretty awesome
Jeff: he also gives a good massage... he's good with his hands...
me: And he's from Scranton, which means he's used to being disappointed
One time someone asked me if I'd been to Scranton and I told him "I think I've driven past it" because I
cannot for the life of me tell you where the hell Scranton is
Jeff: hehehe
it's up the Northeast Extension, I believe
me: I can, however, identify Wilmington
Jeff: we don't go there, like, ever
NE PA
me: Palin is NOT a rolemodel
Jeff: Americans have NOT gotten to know Sarah Palin
me: What complete and utter bullshit!
Could she have resigned because she's completely incompetent?
Say it John. You know you want to. Say "she's a maverick"
New buzz word: Reform
Autism is genetic, bitches
Momma says so
Jeff: I agree with mummy
me: Obama is trying to not yell "NO OMFG SHE HAS LESS EXPERIENCE THAN I DO YOU ASSHOLES"
Jeff: he's totally got to dodge this one
http://palinaspresident.com/
me: Yes, he's using the special needs thing to talk about his education plan!
Jeff: OBAMA WANTZ TO USE SCALPEL
HE WANTZ 2 B A DR.
WE NEED 2 SPEND MOAR
me: I stopped listening to McCain like five minutes ago
OH NO HE DIDN'T!
Jeff: me too
me: Global Warming, bitch.
It's been scientifically proved that it exists. Is proved the right word?
Jeff: proven
me: GChat told me otherwise
Jeff: eh, whateva
me: This Sarah Palin website amuses me WAY too much
Jeff: I know :-).
:-)
me: This is boring. When are they going to get back to the veiled threats?
Jeff: no idea
brb
me: Barfing again?
Drill baby drill.
McCain is SO pleased with his jackassery
Ask McCain about Spain, Obama!
Jeff: sorry - false alarm
me: You aren't dying of bad sushi, are you?
Jeff: I think Brazil would object to Columbia being called our greatest ally in the region
no, I'll be fine
me: Good. Loff you alive
Johnny Mac looks SOOO creepy with his blinking
Jeff: creepy Mr. McSpooky-Pants!
HE JUST SAID MY FRIEND!!!
me: I know! It made me cringe
Jeff: wow.
these women on CNN are HATING on John McCain...
me: Could it be because he's condescending?
Jeff: hehehe, true
me: I think a cage match is in order
Jeff: I agree
John can't lift his arms above his shoulders - expect a lot of stomach punches
me: He'd probably have a heart attack (or fake one)
"You're rich, congratulations"
Jeff: hehehe
me: Seriously.
He just said that
Jeff: TWICE
me: And now Obama is shaking his head sadly
Jeff: what a condescending fuckhead
me: Look at the low approval!
Jeff: so... Big Gov't at its Best is a bad thing?
I see!
me: Dude, no one has a gold plated Cadillac nowadays. They have RIMS!
"Senator government"
Wow McCain. Subtle
Jeff: he wants Joe the Plumber to be able to choose healthcare for himself
because, CLEARLY, Joe the Plumber is a healthcare expert
me: Oooo, abortion talk
Jeff: ooooh... states rights
Senator Obama wasn't a Senator when Bryer came around
*Breyer
me: Soooo...did McCain support Harriet Meyers? Was that her name? We've pretty much forgotten about her by
now.
Jeff: Harriet Myers is right
good point
me: They can't tell me what to do with my ovaries.
Jeff: hells no!
me: Ooo, women's rights!
Jeff: YESSSSS...
me: The women are not approving
Jeff: John McCain... pro-abortion movement!
me: There's a reason it's called pro choice and not "let's have an abortion everyone! We get a group
discount!"
Jeff: yay!
yay! Obama just said "nobody is pro-abortion, but you have to have choices"
me: Jesus! It isn't PRO ABORTION
"Oh, look at me! I have a kid that wasn't fruit of my loins!"
Jeff: I know, I know...
"the rights of the unborn..."
me: Of course we're bad at math. Just look at the economy
That's why I'm in art school. No math. Just pretty pictures. And stress. Lots of stress.
Bri Bri will be one of those teachers
Jeff: I know :-)
I just mentioned that to the room
me: Aw, we're so proud
Jeff: we are...
me: I like this plan.
It's kind of socialist in a nice and happy way
Jeff: :-)
me: You know what's a good school, Lower Merion. You know why it's good, it's well funded and attracts good teachers.
Jeff: and is in an incredibly affluent, white area
me: Malpractice insurance needs to be reduced hardcore
We're discussing how ridiculous it is that our parents in the medical profession have to pay a shitton of
money so they don't get sued
When Specter came to LM, one of the teachers asked how the government intended to take special needs
students into account and those who just don't test well. Specter was very good at avoiding answering
Jeff: well, NCLB actually should take special needs childs into account
in fact, it is SUPPOSED to
but it doesn't do it well enough
me: All I know is that in the section in one of the various exams they gave us where they asked what law/act
we would repeal if we could, I wrote about NCLB and how the entire test I was taking was crap
In fact, I think I ranted about that in the math section, too.
What is the headstart program?
Sarah Palin has a kid with Downs Syndrome, I thought
Jeff: she does
NOT autism
me: Then why does he keep saying she knows about autism?
McCain needs to get it right.
Jeff: brb
me: Word twister!
Jeff: sorry again
false alarm
needed to breathe a bit
me: It's okay. I hope you feel better. Then again, watching this debate can't be helping your stomach
Jeff: not at all
but when Obama talks, I feel strangely light and healthy...
me: He looks tired
Jeff: they both do
me: I kind of want to just give him a hug and send him off to bed
Jeff: I want a hug and to go to bed
me: Your false alarm came when McCain twisted around Obama's words about vouchers and stuff
Cindy McCain looks exactly like the carpet
Jeff: alrighty
now I log off
great chatting with you, Kid
me: Talk to you later. Feel better Jeffy
Jeff: thanks
later
me: Love ya

FIN.

Jeff: O NOES! TEH EKONOMEE!
Me: "Remember the Great Depression John"?

Me: Too many 'uhs'
Jeff: Obama: Georgia- called it!
Me: It's cool. Palin is watching Russia for us. [on the Georgia/Russia crisis]
Jeff: Yes! Israel!
Me: McCain got a bit close to that dude. "Thrate!"
Jeff: We need more maps of South Africa and the Iraq...
Me: Because he was born in the dark ages. [McCain saying "I know what it's like in the dark"]

Veep Debate

Oct. 2nd, 2008 10:44 pm
arielarena: (Default)
Class ran later than I thought so I caught the debate after it started. I also left to go get some food briefly so I missed a few parts. So yeah, I don't know if anyone "won". It was more of a he said/she said than anything. My suitemate also began watching at one point so there was this weird echo-y thing going on with our TVs both on the same station which was kind of cool.

Things that bothered me:
-Palin saying "nukular"
-Biden referring to himself in third person alla Bob Dole
-Palin pointing out that Biden kept using the past and using that as a "he's not into change" sort of thing when Biden was using it is a foil and then Palin would turn around and talk about how things were in Alaska and shit like that.
-I'm sick of hearing about how fucking fabulous Alaska is and how shit cities are. Get off your high horse small town America, you are no better than a city.
-Biden's repetition thing was vaguely condescending. Kind of like McCain's "what Obama doesn't understand" thing except less douche-y than McCain.

Anyway, while watching I was texting my brother Jeff and here is our conversation...

Me: If Biden pulled that 'naive' thing McCain did on Palin, they would call sexism on him.
Me: [Palin] "It's cool, I have gay friends!"
Jeff: Prophetic!
Me: Take a shot every time they use 'fundamental!'
Me: Every time Palin says "that's fer sure" I think maybe it's just Tina Fey playing her.
Jeff: O NOES! TEH WITE FLAG OF SIRENDUR!
Me: OMG NUKULAR?!
Jeff: TEH NUKULAR WITE FLAGZ!
Me: HK + Palin = BFF! HK= Henry Kissinger
Jeff: TEH SPANISH NUKULAR MENASS!
Me: John McCain is obviously a time traveler.
Me: 2 STATES FTW! on Palin's Israel solution
Me: "I respect that you love Israel but I still think you're a dick."
Me: SHE SAID MAVERICK! DRINK!
Jeff: JON MKANE BIPARTISAN MAVRIK!
Me: Biden needs to stop referring to himself in third person. Is it an homage to Bob Dole?
Jeff: Doesn't matter- it works for him, so he'll keep doing it.
Me: "Look at me! I'm from Canada's wang!"
Jeff: Biden looks like he's about to cry.
Me: OMG stfu about that bullshit 'smalltown microcosm of America' crap! Cities are not an orgy of sinfilled liberals!"
Me: Those third graders should be in bed.
Jeff: Haha! She makes lame jokes of our gov't!
Me: Get on gchat. It's cheaper.
Jeff: Can't. I'm at a debate watch party.
Me: LAME. Sharing my genius insights with your friends?
Jeff: YAR! VP CHENEY DANNERUS MAVRIK!
Me: My theory is that Cheney is a zombie living in a cave below the oval office.
Jeff: It's not just a theory...
Me: Pimping out your downs syndrome baby? Wow.
Me: Shots? Well, you did say 'change' and 'maverick'.
Me: I associate maverick with Tom Cruise. Does that mean Palin and McCain worship Xenu?
Jeff: If by Xenu, you mean oil.
Me: Their thetan levels are insane!
Me: Look at me Biden! I'm so fucking perfect! Did you know I can kill a moose with my bare hands?
Me: Way to bring up the past when you keep calling Biden on that. Also, how is using the past as a contrast living in it?


Re: Package Design )
arielarena: (Default)
Yup, I watched it like a good little voter. I'll admit that sometimes I tuned out because it was super boring. Anyway, here are some thoughts in list-ish form:

-McCain said that he was "no Miss Congeniality" twice. Of course he isn't!!! He's a DUDE!
-Obama interrupted McCain a bit too often. Not a good idea.
-As I told Jeff, McCain was a condescending douche to Obama with this "Oh, he's so naive! I am SO OLD and know EVERYTHING about THE WORLD"
-Tea is an underrated foil for diplomacy! Scones seal the deal!
-OMG DIPLOMACY SLEEPOVER!!! Oh would I love to be a fly on that wall when they start up playing 'Never Have I Ever'!
-Best.Idea.Ever, guys: BEER DIPLOMACY!


Wasn't impressed overall. I don't think either answered questions particularly clearly and there was a lot of waffling. Mom thinks McCain came off as more of a waffler. I think both came off as childish at times. Of course, these debates tend to be like that so I don't know why I was expecting more. Maybe it's because both candidates are supposed to be really good at debating (yes, I'm avoiding the "master debater" joke). So yeah, I'm hoping it gets better.

Thoughts?

OMGRAGE! This completely and utterly undermines the Hippocratic Oath. Fuck you Bush Administration! You have NO right to tell me what to do with my body, nor is it okay to give physicians a CHOICE in WHAT they will treat! I don't care how "ethic" or "moral" you deem it, if I want my birth control they'd better fucking give it to me with a goddamned smile and 'have a nice day'!
The NY Times piece.

In other news, Obama wants you to pay child support. One group responds with a "FUCK NO!" and a protest.

I hate US elections...on the bright side, this time I can finally vote.


In other news, the Large Hadron Collider has been shut down because of a liquid helium leak. Damn! As per our discussion in ecology, we were going to solve Earth's carrying capacity issues by finding an alternate universe! Well THAT won't work now!

Went with Mum to DC for this Jewish American Heritage Month celebration at the Capitol. It was rather dull. Fun parts included some comments random politicians made. One compared his caucus (which wasn't but is?) to being like Prince as they keep changing their identity. Another guy talked about when he went on the Colbert Report and was super funny but they cut it out. The best was Charlie Rangel. He's Chairman of the House Ways and Means committee and is pretty damn hilarious! Wanted to give that guy a hug. Apart from those few moments, it was mostly a bunch of people in a room milling around and talking to each other about things I didn't know about.

In the beginning Mum and I were sitting on the side and this guy she had met recently came over. He's a young lawyer...and is rather attractive. Anyway, they were talking over me (I was sitting in between them) and I noticed the women across from us checking out Hot Lawyer. One said she wanted to talk to the "cute guy." Obviously, as soon as he and Mum were done talking, I told him that those chicks were TOTALLY checking him out. He was amused. Didn't see him again after we left that conversation to see who else was out and about. Still, Hot Lawyer is hot.

Went to food with Mum's friend who is a non-profits lobbyist. He gave me a brief history of Capitol Hill and promised to take me around should I make my way to DC again. Might take him up on it. Wanna come [livejournal.com profile] jdcohen? We could have super amounts of fun!!!

Chill time now.

I went to Boston to visit BU. It's a great school. I'm not sure whether I want to go there or to Pratt. I'm leaning more towards Pratt but I'm still not 100% sure. And I haven't been accepted or rejected by BU yet so I can't really judge until I find out, now can I? Oh well.

[livejournal.com profile] jdcohen, I got your package. Thanks!!! The panda stuff is crazy cute! *feels loved*

The State of the Union address is on right now. Bush annoys me...I don't like him much. Not only because he took money that's supposed to go to AIDS relief and gave it to religious groups preaching abstinence that won't actually help those who have AIDS right now but also because he makes tons of bad decisions, skews facts to fit his purposes, spies on people, and probably more stuff. Yeah..."no honor in retreat" blah, blah, blah. Retreating does NOT make you look like a pussy if you're OBVIOUSLY in over your head! Jesus H. Christ! OOoo, "death camps". I guess that sleazy word guy we learned about in Art and Modern Culture talked to Bush. Bladeebladeeblah. I hate this speach. It's taking over the time I usually watch "Scrubs". I wanna watch JD and his amusing antics, not some idiot trying to spread propoganda.
/ impromptu rant

Could someone tell me why people have been ranting on their LJ's about the prom? It's not for three months, guys. Why worry now? Just chill. And eat some chocolate.

Yup...
