Stupid Politics- A Rant Part 1

Well, I got a response from Lamborn at least from his office, though it was a generic email response. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for something real. We'll see.

Speaking of politics, we're going to Dick & Merrily's tonight to watch the VP debate. Mostly I'm going in part to know what they'll be talking about on the next SNL, since I was a little lost on the Katie Couric spoof last week.

I think I'm leaning toward Obama right now....the Republican party is really disappointing in its response to the New York Times article about campaign manager Rick Davis' ties to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, saying "Whatever The New York Times once was, it is today not by any standard a journalistic organization" Its' their traditional strategy and its turning me off to McCain/Palin.

Also, Colorado Springs, home of Focus on the Family, is such a conservative bastion that I just want to throw a wrench in the machine they've created. I'm tired of the "NOBAMA" bumper stickers and am tempted to buy "G" stickers to change them to "GOBAMA." Politics should be fun.

Why is being a "Boulder liberal" such a bad name? Sticks and stones, Republicans. Would the Right be upset to be called a "Colorado Springs Conservative"? That stupid campaign actually won Udall a vote.

Can I be a Christian and NOT a member of the GOP (I'm actually an independent)? You bet! And I'm not the only one. Author Don Miller (Blue Like Jazz) was recently in the Springs

to help convince evangelicals that Barack Obama, who has spoken extensively of the role of faith in public life, is "probably the most evangelical candidate of all the candidates."

“One of the reasons we’re here in Colorado is that it is up for grabs and the opportunity arose,” Miller said. “We have no desire to go into the heart of the evangelical movement and dismantle it, but here’s the message: A lot of people don’t know that the culture war is a cultural Vietnam, and we’re at an impasse. This is a chance for us, and a lot of evangelicals are finding themselves endeared to Barack Obama.”

“Certainly many more evangelicals, and younger evangelicals, are figuring out that globalization and trade are incredibly important — responsible fatherhood is incredibly important,” Miller said. In addition, he termed the current administration’s accounting practices “unbiblical.”

“Our taxes have gone up and we have a 40 percent larger government … we can no longer say as evangelicals we have one party,” he said.
