eurydicebound: (accident)
I do. I don't like to admit to hating anyone, but there it is. I miscalculated and watched her speech the other night, and... I'm horrified. She knows nothing. She's cute and charming and calculating and has just about as much ethics as you could pour into a thimble, if that. She's 110% a populist candidate, with the idea that anyone can do anything if they put their mind to it... never mind all the schooling and other unimportant stuff. Doing is the thing! Actually learning anything is a complete waste of time. All you need is a bit of pluck and beauty queen good looks and you, too, can Have the American Dream. Even my mother really likes her.

She is, quite frankly, my nemesis.

I can't decide how I feel about the debates, whether I want to seem them or not. On the one hand, I have every faith that Biden and Obama can run rings around her. On the other hand, I can't shake this fear that the people who like her -- and would vote for McCain because of her -- will just not care. The thought that we, as a nation, could seek out an uneducated small-town politician who has evidently never discovered the problems with nepotism or abuse of power and decide to elevate that to a hairsbreadth away from the presidency, over 20+ years of experience and vision and bipartisan efforts, just to "keep the country safe?"

Once I thought that even if McCain got elected, things would basically still be okay -- not as happy, but okay. Now? Heaven help us all.
