Obama with a Bald Eagle

I’m happy to say that I am moving back home tonight after 10 days of couch surfing, iPadding on the bus and living out of a bag. Thanks to everyone who helped make these past two weeks a little less hellish than they could have been.

Thanks to Felipe Bascope for the Image!

Today is, seriously, the happiest day of my life so far. Before I left for the office this morning I turned on my cable so I could set the DVR to record Obama’s Inaugural speech, but just had to default to recording everything on ABC from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, because that was my only option. I’m sure his speech will be in there somewhere, along with a bunch of other goodies I’ll be glad I didn’t miss. I don’t envy Barack Obama the job ahead of him, but I’m sure glad he’s there in the White House instead of just another George Bush. I’ve had enough of the George Bushes for an eternity. By the way, I’d love to turn you all on to a great Left Wing blog I’ve been reading lately, Duhh Central Dot Com, which is smart, hilarious and spot on. Check it out!

This was originally written by Ana Dubey and later made public by Mary-Kay Gamel, who is often erroneously identified as the author.

My Holiday With John McCain


It was just before John McCain’s last run at the presidential nomination in 2000 that my husband and I vacationed in Turtle Island in Fiji with John McCain, Cindy, and their children, including Bridget (their adopted Bangladeshi child).  It was not our intention, but it was our misfortune, to be in close quarters with John McCain for almost a week, since Turtle Island has a small number of bungalows and their focus on communal meals force all vacationers who are there at the same time to get to know each other intimately.
