Okay, enough is enough. We liberal, Obama loving fans were so hopeful that Obama would win and we would hear the last of Sarah Palin. But instead, what do we see when we turn on CNN, MSNBC, network news? Every tidbit the news people can find about Sarah? How much did she spend on clothes for herself, her husband, etc. Following her to Alaska to interview her; digging up every piece of info about her they can.

If we are really fascinated with her, let's be honest and admit it. If we have heard enough, let's let the news people know.

And, as a last word, Clifford and I have suspected that she was used and abused and tossed aside by the Republican Party. In a way, I pity this woman who was beyond her capabilities and expertise. Cast to the sharks, so to speak.

Off my soap box now.

Every once in a while, I stumble on a really great movie/documentary. Tonight we watched one! It is called "The Real Dirt on Farmer John" and is about Angelic Organics in Clinton, Wisconsin. The man who is the center of the movie is named John Peterson and his is a truly inspiring, sensitive, up-lifting story. It encompasses the 60's, the demise of farms in the Midwest, never giving up, and CSA's or Community Sponsored Agriculture. Rent it, watch it. You'll really find it a great real-life story.

The difference between Obama and McCain: For 1 thing, Clifford and I noted that McCain and supporters are at the Arizona Biltmore, one of the most posh hotels in Phoenix and a rather small venue in relation to GRANT PARK. I have been to both places and the difference between an elitist and a maverick are shown by their choice of places to celebrate.

Well three hours later and we are celebrating the most amazing event we have seen in years. Can anyone of our generation believe that we have an African/American (half white) man elected President of the United States! Let us never forget how far we have come and that the old older may pass quietly and we come upon a time when color is not as important as some people think it is.

We are so proud to be Americans again. No, we were not proud for the past 8 years and I am not afraid to say it.
