Okay, so as Digby so rightly says, ” If it isn’t Jesus Christ or Elvis, it’s going to be a letdown.” And you all know I was holding out hope that he would name Hillary Clinton. Or Gov. Sebelius. Or anyone that represented some of that “change” I was forced to listen about ad nauseum for the past year. But no. In the end, Obama picks someone for their “experience.”
All that sturm und drang, and the news was released via CNN in the end anyway. So my skepticism, radar says “Nice. Now Obama has thousands (millions?) of new phone numbers to use this fall. Perhaps they never intended to release the news this way after all.”
Perhaps John McCain will choose Joe Lieberman, and then things will get really fun. But meanwhile, I’m trying to get behind yet another Democratic ticket that I find less than ideal. Give me some time to absorb it all. I need to let this idea “marinate.” (Any “Kissing Jessica Stein” fans out there?)
Meanwhile, Unnamed Partner and I are about to head out to the Farmer’s Market, and then later tonight we’re planning to catch the new Woody Allen movie. Perhaps a little time spent with Penelope Cruz will make me feel a little better about the world ….
