What do you care about?

For those who haven't realized, the election was last year, and most people are over it, and have moved on to talking about more important things, like the bailout, and GITMO, and Frankenpelosi spouting off about improving education by decreasing birthrates. Yet, we are constantly told, when we discuss these things, that we are just sore losers whining about Obama? Even when Obama isn't mentioned? So if we aren't supposed to mention anything going on in congress or the world, what IS important?

  • I just ignore the people who say that. I think for many this was their first "rodeo" and maybe they werent into current events and politics before the election so there is some notion that its all related to the election itself when its not. Over time I am sure most who are younger and maybe just experienced their first election will realize were talking about whats important to us, or they will realize later when these things start having an affect on their livelihood and lifestyle. I will continue to care about Politics regardless of whose the president.

     American Idol. Why doesn't Richard Alpert age? Jillian - totally important. Where all my Sharpies go - complete mystery. When is the next Woot-off? How do we handle our first parent-teacher conference of first grade? Should I try to grow my hair out or keep it short? Why did ABC cancel Pushing Daisies?

  • Pass the violin because you still can't move past the election? The grown ups are talking now sweetie, go back to Gossip Girl.

  • Wimsey, isn't it wonderful they have other areas just for those questions, and none of them are called Politics and Current Events? And get the Wootalyzer - it will tell you when the Woot Off happens.
