Oh Just Grow Up!
To be fair, I will tell you that I have not watched the debate. I have it on the DVR and I will but last night I was way too tired (I didn't even get home until after it was over). It was a crazy busy on-the-go day for me which included Grandma coming over to care of Kaylen in the afternoon and our new babysitter coming in the evening to watch both kids. I felt like I hardly saw either one of them yesterday. Strange.
Today is almost as busy - in fact, the whole week is crammed full. I mistakenly believed life would be much more calm with only one child to care for during the school day but instead, I am about 10 times as busy.
But anyway - about the above video. There are snip-its that I've heard about the debate and I couldn't believe when people started saying McCain blew off a handshake but there it is (it's kind of like "The handshake blow-off heard around the world. Huge mistake, dude. HUGE!). A grown man who is clearly sulking and, in my opinion, being completely disrespectful and childish. Grow up, already.
And umm...healthcare is a responsibility? Yes, on the side of making sure you are going in to your appointments to get your check ups and whatnot but in the coverage itself? Are you smoking crack, McCain? It's a frikkin' RIGHT to have healthcare coverage and as for shopping for my own, as well as the kids, in all my spare time? No thanks. And really - the average policy costs $12,000 a year. How in the world would people find good coverage (at least equal to what they have) for less than half of that? Join the real world, my friend.
