Oh, gawdddd! 

The Diamondbacks lost to the Padres again tonight.

The Dodgers have acquired a huge number of aces from the Red Sox.

Tiger Woods had a kind of lousy day at The Barclay's.

Maybe I'll just quit sports altogether.

But then what would that leave?


Oh, god.

The Republicans start their convention Monday in Tampa by adjourning until Tuesday afternoon because of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac.  At least Vice-President Joe Biden called off his campaigning in Tampa during the convention.  That would have been a bit nasty.  And, as he said, the G.O.P. has enough on their plates the next week.

I still believe President Obama will win the election in November.  Maybe that's because I can't imagine a White House with Milt Romney in charge.  I don't think a country's government can be run like a business.  Especially like a cut-throat business empire the likes of which Romney ran. 

The people have to be considered.  Taken care of when they can't take care of themselves.  A Mormon should know this, judging from the special on NBC last night. 

But I just don't believe Mitt Romney has any real sense of the vast middle class in this country.  I know huge numbers of the middle class are supporting him.  But I can't imagine what they're thinking, what they're hoping for.  Romney is a millionaire, with millionaire friends.  And those people forget about the people who aren't millionaires.

I know this doesn't make a lot of sense.  But I've had some vodka tonight and basically I'm just emptying my brain.

So, forgive me.

And please vote for the Democrats in November.

And pray for the Diamondbacks, if that is your thing.

That was a good brain drain. The perils of the Diamonbacks to Mitt.

Probably the best political commercial of the season!

I couldn't agree more with your political comments. Well said.

Ya nailed it right there Bruce.

Best to stick with sports. Both Uakland teams won last night. All right.

I don't really know enough about politics in your country to comment. However, I do think Romney and Ryan are ignorant ugly people, and yes, with little knowledge of the 'real people' of this world.
I loathe racism, which I fear is the reason many will not vote for Obama again.

So sorry about your Diamondbacks (although of course I routinely pull against them - ha!).

You are so right on about politics. I sure hope you're right about Obama winning - and I can't wait until November 7th!
