Next up: HOPE for Kuwait

If anyone's paying attention...Hope is a good campaign slogan.

Future candidate if you're reading this...saying this to me will get you my vote...(in so many words):
This was one of the tasks we set forth at the beginning of this campaign - to continue the long march of those who came before us, a march for a more just, more equal, more free, more caring and more prosperous America(read:Kuwait). I chose to run for the presidency(read: parliament) at this moment in history because I believe deeply that we cannot solve the challenges of our time unless we solve them together - unless we perfect our union by understanding that we may have different stories, but we hold common hopes; that we may not look the same and we may not have come from the same place, but we all want to move in the same direction - towards a better future for of children and our grandchildren.

In case you missed it, that was part of Barack Obama's speech on race he made in Pennsylvania yesterday.(Nerd alert: 38 minutes of powerful themes and eloquent delivery.)

His speeches are inspirational, healing in a way. I'd like to hear that here.

Call it whatever you want: political maturity. Theatrics. Speech writing. Flag-filled backgrounds. Impressive Orators. Well-groomed people. Cheesy sound bytes. I want it here.

I'm sick of the childish antics of the cabinet, our juvenile representatives and our moronic voters.

In other news, on the other side of the globe, yesterday I bought mascara. My choices were a "blacker black" and regular old black; who knew black came in "light" and "dark"?! Good ol'black...you'll always be black enough for me. (And yes my lashes are as important as the American election/Kuwaiti political mess if not more.)

hamitaf- that'll be my next buy.

eshda3wa- good point :D

moniker- for real?! It sounds like it could be true. Let's start that rumor and hope it'll make it to snopes-infamy level...

boredq80- (blushing) mashkoora ba3ad 3omri. min thooo8ich. O'sa7 ilsanich...there's no point in someone giving you a hand when he's digging a hole underneath you at the same time.

Black is black people! Black is the absence of color...how can it be more absent..?!!!
