I also never referenced anyone by name. I used the mayor's office as an example. Could have just as easily gone with councilman, schoolboard director, commissioner, tax collector, governor, etc. MY point is that you'll give one office a little more slack than another, when by your very own admission, they're all just politicians at heart, and imperfect ones at that. You really believe that makes any shred of sense? And that you're not being disingenuous by claiming that political affiliation has nothing at all to do with it? You're a Republican, so naturally they'll get a pass from you. But from Obama to Pelosi to Doherty, you're holding Democrats to a very different standard. WHY??

I'm a registered Republican but do not always vote a straight ticket. Actually in this election, I voted 50/50. If I like the candidate, I'll vote for him no matter what party he's with. I actually liked John Edwards in the beginning of the campaign, but he had no shot to be elected by the Democrats. I said I'm willing to give Obama a shot because he's our next President and we need to get together and suppport him, I just don't think he's the right man for the job. He won simply because people wanted change for change sake and sometimes that's not the right way to go, but we'll see.

Default From A Republican To A Democrat

I just got this in an email...LOL!!

No Hard Feelings...

The election day is over,

The talking is done.

My party lost,

your party won.

So let us be friends,

Let arguments pass.

I'll hug my elephant,

You kiss your ass.

A cowboy has spent many days crossing the western plains without water. His horse has already died of thirst.

He's crawling through the sand, certain that he has breathed his last breath, when all of a sudden; he sees an object sticking out of the sand several yards ahead of him. He crawls to the object, pulls it out of the sand, and discovers an old brief case.

He opens it and out pops a genie. But this is no ordinary genie. She is wearing an Internal Revenue Service ID badge and a dull grey dress.

There's a calculator in her pocketbook. She has a pencil tucked behind one ear.
'Well, cowboy,' says the genie... 'You know how I work. You have three wishes.'
'I'm not falling for this.' said the cowboy. 'I'm not going to trust an IRS genie.'

'What do you have to lose? You've got no transport, and it looks like you're a goner anyway!'
The cowboy thinks about this for a minute, and decides that the genie is right.
'OK, I wish I were in a lush oasis with plenty of food and drink.'

***POOF***

The cowboy finds himself in the most beautiful oasis he has ever seen. And he is surrounded with jugs of wine and platters of delicacies.
'OK, cowpoke, what's your second wish.'

'My second wish is that I was rich beyond my wildest dreams.'

***POOF***

The cowboy finds himself surrounded by treasure chests filled with rare gold coins and precious gems.
'OK, cowpuncher, you have just one more wish. Better make it a good one!'

After thinking for a few minutes, the cowboy says... 'I wish that no matter where I go, beautiful women will want and need me.'

***POOF***

He is turned into a tampon.


The moral of the story is: If the government offers you anything, there's going to be a string attached.

Since I've befriended so many people from NJ at work, school, and in my own community I, too, now say "dawg", "tawk", "draw" (instead of drawer), etc. I find NJ accents to be a huge turn-on, so hopefully I can get the hang of it soon enough!
