I’m Offering BandAids And Lollipops

On Saturday the family is going for flu shots. It’s not something anyone wants to do. It will be unpleasant and painful. There might even be some after-effects that sting for a bit.

But we’re going.

I’ve come to the conclusion Senator John McCain and Governor Sarah Palin need to treat the upcoming debates like a flu shot.

You’re going, whether you like it or not. So just get over it now. Roll up your sleeves, take a deep breath, and prepare to hurt.

In case you missed it, the McCain/Palin circus is now trying to skip out of the VP debate too.

Maybe they need lollipops?

How about a video treat instead…

Sarah, John, the childish games are getting old. You can stall all you like, just like my 5 and 3-year olds before bedtime and just like they will attempt to do on Saturday before their shot, but these debates are going to happen.

I’ll get the bandaids ready.

    I say, let them stall all they like. It just ends up making people see how unprepared Palin is to actually talk in front of people without saying “thanks but no thanks to the bridge to no where” and rubs the shine off of her a little. In other words, it helps get Obama elected and I’m all for that!

  2. Forget lollipops– Sarah Palin is gonna need a case of Redbull so she can keep crammin!

    “Bush Doctrine whaaa?? whooo?? um……….well….”

  3. I hate this – it reminds me of the vote to invade Iraq. There will be no winners. Now the Bushers are pulling the same stunt as before, trying to make anyone who doesn’t jump when they say jump look like a traitor. This is a PERFECT time for a debate. Couldn’t be better. Let’s get it on.

  4. dude. that video was the best. i swear, i would never have any new posts on my blog if you didn’t keep posting all these amazing videos for me to steal.

    and, no: i don’t feel bad about the stealing. because in this case, it’s not called “stealing,” it’s called “getting the vote out.”
    um, right?

  5. You know, I’ve been hoping for a long time that eventually you’d get back to being you. I appreciate your political views, really I do, but that was never what I came here to read about. I’m tired of all this political diatribe, and since that’s all you’ve got to write about, I guess I’m tired of you. Thanks for when you were you, but I’m moving on.
