Politics aside? This peeved me.....

Yeah. I'm peeved. HIGHLY, HIGHLY peeved. And, I don't care who it is running for what office....PTL? Captain of the College Football team? Team leader for the IRS? A freakin' 30 minutes of blah, blah, blah political blah, blah, blah? I mean seriously candidates? As, if the constant bombardment of commercials every five to seven minutes isn't enough? You know what? I don't like anybody! Anybody, being anyone who messes with my evening T.V. line up. Like the stupid writers strike way back when. It took the networks all that time to figure out, "Give'em their D@mn $$$. They deserve it because they are funny and entertain us." There didn't have to be a strike.  Stupid network people. Oh, and speaking of the networks. What the haybale were they thinking? "Oh, I know. If we broadcast across the board on the networks? Then, our viewers will have to watch it and we'll act like we had no choice." No choice, my piehole. While the network masters are out buying new cars, flying to Vegas and the Caribbean?? I'm struggling to get two small children in and out of the tub, separately - and the left over homework done. And, the dishes in the dishwasher. And, all before this stupid thing is over so I can watch "The New Adventures of Old Christine!" Guess what CBS and NBC? I'm watching ABC's "Pushing Daisies" from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. from now on. I have a system. And, when DH is away? It really helps keep me on task. Cuz' I'm an on task kinda' Gal. And, I have a LOT of tasks. The ones I wanna' do? And, then ones I HAVE to do before I get to do the one's I wanna' do.  And, the TV line-up keeps me on schedule. At least on Monday's and Wednesday nights from 7:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. So, next time you are running for an office? Of any organization? Please send out a 30 minute-read pamplet. I'll be sure to read it in my "commercial" time.  As for now? I surely do not find "30 straight minutes of political sales" entertaining and relaxing. And, I don't care who you are, what party you are with, or what office you are running for. I'm Farmer*sWife. And, I approve this message. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ranting over. I just thought the whole idea was stupid. Seven days before the election? When your numbers are ahead? And, then you gotta' push the limit and screw with our Prime Time. Anyhoodle! Happy Hump-Diggity!

I started to comment on this, but then I began hijacking your blog. So click on over to read my rant.
I agree with you, on a slightly different level, but Oh, How I Agree With You!

Well FW.. I'm hoping someday you will cut loose and really tell us how you feel about the 30 minute bullshit line up..... ha ha

yea... I would have just shut the TV off.. I think what he did was wrong.

I had not decided until he did that...and that's cheating...and if you are gonna cheat.. you don't get my vote.. I RAISED MY GIRLS NOT TO CHEAT.... and I expect the same of my pres... so Now I know who I'm voting for...agree.. disagree.. don't care.. it's my vote.. and they both suck and it's the easiest way to decide..

that or flip a coin...and I'm broke...

I agree. I am sick of tired of being sick and tired of this. Glad I was not home to have to put up with it, though I have PLENTY on my DVR to watch and not have to worry about live time.

Pushing Daisies is a better show anyway.
I didn't watch the speech. I was out on the town. Maybe this was something that should have been done awhile ago. I still find it hard to believe that people have not decided yet.Have people not been paying attention the last 12 months? I guess not.

I watch Pushing Daisies every week anyway, so it had no affect on me. I wouldn't have watched it if somebody paid me to anyway.

I think it was designed to shut up the people who keep continously saying they don't know who he is, they don't know what he stands for and blah-blah-blah

because the sad fact in the United Stupid of America is that far too many people don't pay attention, don't read, and don't take their govt. seriously

which is why we're in the mess we're in

sorry about the disruption to your kid's schedule, I remember what that was like but it ran on 3 out of 900 channels

and actually it was very interesting

guess we're gonna disagree on this way my friend.
