How to woo a J

I lost him when she said "Geothermal source."

*Sigh*

Be good to him Sarah P. I still love him.

I listened to the entire Sarah speech tonight while I was out working. I was one of those naggy naysayers thinking she couldn't handle her business in addition to having 5 kids including a special needs newborn........I was wrong. Sarah Rocks!

I still don't like McCain, though.

aubrey said...

duh. jamie lynn spears. i'm so sure.

and i still don't like mccain, even if i'm kind of warming up to sarah.

Big Jay said...

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. There are two issues in this campaign that swing me to McCain. The supreme court, and energy policy. I haven't heard a politician hit the nail on the head like Palin did... ever. And this was a convention speech. Awesome. If Mitt would have been the nominee I would add healthcare to the list of why I'm voting republican this time. But he's not. McCain should put Mitt in charge of putting together a national health care plan that everyone can agree on. If he does that I will actively campaign for the republicans.

I am SO with you Elastic and Aubrey. I cannot get enthused about the dude.

Big Jay--Avee just pointed to our engagement photo and said, "Who's dis guy called about?"
I'm sorry, you were saying? Energy, healthcare, your mom goes where...??

I liked that she said that McCain will use his career to further politics, not use politics to further his career. And then I read an article that had this quote:

We know the former Miss Alaska runner-up’s stance on on stem cells and teaching creationism in schools, but what’s her position on scrunchies vs. banana clips?

I also didn't like McCain to begin with, but I'm warming to him. But why, WHY must it only be a two-party system?

Maybe I should have just posted my own blog rather than write a post in your comments...

I was like Elastic...and then speech and then...love.
Love.

No Cool Story said...

"Who's dis guy called about?"
Yeah, I want to know too.

ucmama said...

Hey Jay! Why come you haven't posted to your blogs lately?

megachick said...

sarah p definitely rocks. NOW i'll get a sign and bumper sticker.

Tori :) said...

I wasn't likin' McCain a ton, but he was like the lesser of 2 evils. But Palin has helped win me over. I also agree with everything Jay said.
I'm so not political, but to me Obama just SOUNDS like he's full of crap. Kinda like a used car salesman. But that's just me...

Heffalump said...

If only my computer had sound right now I could have heard the speech too! But unfortunately it doesn't, and we don't get TV reception here either...so...I'm at a loss.
Still...I have to admit that picking Sarah has made me warmer towards McCain than I was. Not that I will ever LIKE him...but I do like her.

Code Yellow Mom said...

I MISSED THE SPEECH. I cannot even believe it. (we were driving to NYC...)But she rocks my world and I think this is the most brilliant thing McCaine could ever do. And what I love most is all the feminists who don't know what the he..ck to do about it. heh, heh, heh. I actually care to vote now.

What I'm really bugged about is that they are comparing her "inexperience" to Obamas. Uhhh. Aren't they going to be serving in different capacities? And that's just the beginning of the apples to oranges stuff I'm seeing...

And now I have made a political comment online. Look what you do to me.

Andrew said...

I don't like McCain, and I don't want to vote for him. With Palin on the ticket, though, I'm willing.

Big Jay, we have to talk about Cap and Trade. You do know what that'll do to gas prices and our heavy industry (such as it is) right? Both Obama and McCain support it...

MommyJ said...

don't worry.. i think you would sound very natural working 'geothermal' in to your own everyday conversation...

I have a lot of respect for Palin... think she'll do nothing but help McCain's campaign.

Klin said...

Ditto to what Tori said. I really just wanted Mitt. Plus, he's good looking. It would be nice to have a good looking president. By my standards anyway.

omar said...

Note to self: don't say "geothermal source" around J.

Palin's speech was nice. I guess I don't have a problem with her, just with the folks who get all mad at the media for doing their job and reporting about her and her family. Unless she's one of those people who got all mad, in which case, I guess I do have a problem with her, but just don't know it yet.

As of right now though, my only beef with her is the names she chose for her kids, which has nothing to do with politics.

Big Jay said...

Andrew,

I think cap and trade gets so much broad support because it worked so well solving the acid rain problem.

I don't really agree with doing cap and trade for carbon. It's too ubiquitous of an emission and it would radically disrupt our economy. In my world, to combat global warming, or high fuel prices, we just build a nuclear power plant to replace every coal plant, get small atomic energy engines to power all our ships, our trains, and even individual industrial plants. THEN do cap and trade. Supporting cap and trade without supporting peaceful clean safe nuclear power is preposterous. I will not vote for any politician who does not give full support to expansion of nuclear power. If we hadn't choked off the nuclear industry in the 70's we would be kyoto compliant today.

It's kind of weird, I mean, McCain was my 2nd choice in the GOP primary. I supported McCain over Dubya in the 2000 primary (largely b/c of my friend Nate, and no I didn't vote in 2000, I lived in Utah so whats the point?) Everyone else is swinging to McCain b/c of Palin... and I like her, but I feel exactly as excited about McCain now that he picked Palin, as I did when I wasn't sure who he would pick. If he picked Huckster, or Romney I would have become less, or more enthused with McCain, but I'm just one of those voters I guess.

Oh and to clarify, when I said Palin hit the nail on the head, I meant she hit the nail on the head on energy policy. I liked everything else but she was speaking my language

Big Jay said...

Oh, and the supreme court. I probably would have even grudgingly voted for someone like Huckster until the republicans appoint 3 more supreme court justices, and a whole slew of appellate judges.

Sad to say but true.

Andrew said...

Hm. I must be Bo-like. That was the exact right thing to say, Jay.

In addition, since both candidates support it, that's kind of a wash, and I'm equally serious about nuclear power (wrote a massive post about it) and supreme court justices.

That's a very sensible take.
