Countdown to Barack: 20 Days

I am feeling a little bit manic today. I try not to throw that word around lightly, but I have this weird nervous energy (I can’t tell if it’s good or bad) that is making me a little on edge and certainly not want to sit at my desk all day. Maybe it’s because I haven’t had any alcohol in my system all week and have been sitting on my couch doing crossword puzzles every night or because my whole world is caving in around me. Who knows? All I know is that I feel like I am on the cusp of something just standing here ready and waiting for it to happen. Maybe this feeling is directly related to the state of uncertainty our country is in. Probably, coupled with a few other things.

So last night was the third and final debate and McCain told Barack that he is not George Bush, and if he wanted to run against George Bush, he should have ran eight years ago. While Barack stayed pretty cool, smiled a lot, and still insisted that McCain is in fact quite a lot like Bush. That movie W opens tomorrow. I am excited, it looks thoroughly entertaining. Anyway, the debate was interesting enough. Although we have heard most of it before, they did cover some new ground railing each other about their dirty campaigns and getting into Roe V. Wade. I think Obama made a good point when he said that no one is Pro Abortion, we are Pro Choice. True indeed. I also liked that Hillary was there too. I wonder if this hard for her or if she is totally over that whole running for president thing.

Okay, I now have to figure out something to do with myself for the rest of the day. I have deadlines!
