I’ve been super lazy this past week. Well, lazy at least when it comes to updating this site. Been busting my ass at work, have been hitting the gym almost daily, and have been doing my best to try and get my life back on track…just have been too lazy when not doing all that to do simple things like update this blog.
Blah, blah, blah, I’m sure you’re thinking and I get it. So, we’ll cut to the chase and get to the Babe of the Week. As I hinted to in my last post, it’s none other than Ayla Brown, the daughter of the newly elected Senator of Massachusetts, and the first Republican to hold the seat since well before the sperm and egg met that created me, Scott Brown.
Okay, so I just learned something extremely important tonight. No, not that Republican Scott Brown has just become the first non-Democrat US senator for the State of Massachusetts in something like 44 years. Not that a State that is considered one of the Left-most in the Union that voted for Obama by a better than 25% margin essentially voted against the President’s health care proposal tonight. No. The extremely important thing that I learned tonight is that Senator-Elect Scott Brown has a wicked hot daughter! Go Scott Brown! Oh, and here’s Scott’s daughter, Ayla, who will likely be my Babe of the Week once I stop being lazy.
While most pundits believe that our next President will be Barack Obama, my gut feeling is that we’ll be addressing Senator John McCain as President when all is said and done. Even though most Americans seem fed up with President Bush’s failures and McCain really represents more of the same, you simply cannot underestimate the power of the Republican political war machine.
I’m already seeing a lot of fear mongering from the Republicans, the party which I’m officially registered with, and that often is enough to win over most Americans who want to feel safe and secure. Even though the 9/11 attacks happened on President Bush’s watch, I’m hearing enough from people that seem to credit Bush for keeping another attack from coming while also claiming that the only way to keep another from happening is electing McCain.
Throw in the fact that Palin will undoubtedly bring over enough ignorant female voters that had supported Hilary Clinton, despite the fact that another Republican Presidency could mean an even greater swing to the Right in the Supreme Court and potentially a ban on abortion, and you have yourself an election that McCain can win.
Plus, the Republicans always do a good job of painting their opponent’s as aloof and out of touch with the common people and this tactic seems to be swaying some people away from Obama thanks to his slew of Hollywood endorsements and his “intellegence”. The conspiracy theorist inside me is also thinking that the recent drop in gas prices is all a part of a plan to get people to think that the economy isn’t really all that bad and that will lessen the need for the always-frightening thought of “change”.
