Email From My Aunt

So I just received this in my inbox
Think about this and let your voice be heard......

You couldn't get a job at McDonalds and become district manager after 143 d ays of experience.   You couldn't become chief of surgery after 143 days of
 experience of being a surgeon.  You couldn't get a job as a teacher and b e the superintendent after 143 days of experience.  You couldn't join the m ilitary and become a colonel after a 143 days ofexperience.   You couldn't  get a job as a reporter and become the nightly news anchorafter 143 days of
 experience.            BUT....        'From the time Barack Obama was swor n in as a United State Senator, to the time he announced he was forming a
 Presidential exploratory committee, he logged 143 days of experience in
 the Senate. That's how many days the Senate was actually in session and wo rking.  After 143 days of work experience, Obama believed he was ready to
 be Commander In Chief, Leader of the Free World .... 143 days.  We all h ave to start somewhere. The senate is a good start, but after 143 days,
 that's all it is - a  start.  AND, strangely, a large sector of the Am erican public is okay with this and campaigning for him. We wouldn't accept
 this in our own line of work, yet some are okay with this for the Presid ent of the United States of America ?

Come on folks, we are not voting for the next American Idol!
I couldn't believe that
A: she sent this to me
B: that people could even buy into this in the first place.

Well sent this was sent to the whole family I decided to keep it going. I replied all that I was absolutely voting for Obama and sent along a blog post from Momocrats. It is a great post comparing the educational resumes of the candidates. Well the conversation has now taken off with aunts and cousins chiming in. One of my cousins agreed with my aunt and went on to say that Palin is the only "real" person on the ballot.

Well that added some excitement to a nice quiet Sunday!


  1. Oh I believe that she had the audacity to send it to you (and me)! It's the kind of thoughtless rhetoric that so many people buy into without thinking for themselves.

    The nice quiet Sunday did get eventful for a little while.

  2. Still, I'd have to point out that at least Obama has charisma. The only thing Palin has is good eyeware.
