Today I am excited!
The Show Me State votes today to decide who will be the GOP Senate nominee. I’m from Texas and know BBQ, and what I saw on Friday in Missouri looked pretty tasty and served with a side of conservatism. Steelman is on fire with several last minute big endorsements, the Palin visit buzz and lots of boots on the ground. I know it will be a close race, but I have a gut feeling that Steelman will have just enough to win. Remain in prayer all day for the voters to come out and Steelman to come out on top.
The Governor must have a Discover Card. She and Todd have cranked up the RV and been pumping tons of diesel while traveling all over the place to work for conservative candidates. 5% cash back on gas ain’t bad.
All this action on the ground Palin style makes the boys and girls at Prep School in Tampa look petty, ugly and self serving. The disgusting trotting of operatives out to bash Palin and digging up bones from ’08 is not even high school level, but Junior High School tactics. They look to be more focused on keeping Palin out of their little club she doesn’t even want to be in than uniting the party, rallying the base and beating Obama. How many ways can you be stupid?
The Governor doesn’t seem to give a rat’s butt about the
RINO prancing prom night RNC Convention coming up in Tampa. Frankly, neither do I. Instead, Palin is focused, relaxed, getting some summer travel in with the kids and kicking a little establishment butt all while wearing awesome looking shoes. My popcorn air popper is over heating from all the popcorn I have been popping around here watchin’ Palin make Mitt and the club look worse than I ever imagined they could.
I’ll be honest. I have never really watched the Conventions. I find them contrived and boring. In ’08 I tuned in because…well….DUH….the first female on a national GOP ticket was speaking and she was conservative down to her core. I was all over watching just Palin’s speech in ’08. Didn’t watch any other parts of the convention, tuned in specifically to hear the Governor and I was not disappointed. There were millions just like me that night in September ’08. And just like millions today, I’m just not feeling the need to change any plans to see any of the establishment’s speeches on the super special invite list the RNC has released thus far…nope…besides my dog is pretty
damn darn entertaining, so I’m watching him laying and sleeping on the back porch instead.
On the home front, the boy is with my sister for the week in H-town and hubby is traveling having finally been cleared by his doctor to do so after his back surgery in June. For most of our 19 year marriage he has flown out on Monday and flown home on Friday. He has been working from the house since June so I am
glad to have him out of my hair for the week sad to see him go. All this means I am by myself till Friday. Wow! I have The Undefeated on the DVR and a couple of chick flicks I plan to watch plus I plan to go to the big city one day all alone to do a little shopping and eat lunch where I want to! Wow, I’m pumped!
How many of you have been watching the Olympics?
I am so proud of all our athletes.
Our swimming squad had an awesome meet but I must admit to a little water logging going on so I am thrilled to be out of the pool and on the track! WOOT! I love me some Track and Field and it has been exciting so far.
Usain Bolt had a jaw dropping Olympic record 100 meters at 9.63 but how about our Team USA? We took 3rd (Justin Gatlin 9.79), 4th (Tyson Gay 9.80) and 5th (Ryan Bailey 9.88) in the 100 meters and I couldn’t be prouder! Way to go guys!
I am eagerly awaiting the women’s 100 meter hurtles. That is one of my favorite events. It is fast, exciting and you never know what will happen when you have hurtles on the track. It is anyone’s race, literally, ask Lolo Jones! All three American women qualified to move on to the Semi-Finals and should be in the Finals as well. I am watching Kellie Wells on this event. There is lots of competition in the field including Dawn Harper, who won gold in Beijing coming out of no where and has had to listen to people question her ability and calling her win a fluke. She is hankering for a big old piece of validation! An all American podium would be awesome! We’ll know today as the Semi-Final and Finals will be run today!
Have a great day everyone and go Steelman!
News of the Day:
This surprises no one.
These people win the Gold of b****iness. Congratulations.
Prayers for his family.
Oh yeah, we know Reid is to stupid to be this stupid without you giving him his talking points.
Last time I was at Galveston the beach was to dang crowded, I’m contacting my Congressman about getting it shut down just for me and my friends to be there.
I know there is a lock out due to a contract dispute, but I hear shattered glass hitting the floor.
400 meters in 49.55! USA! USA! USA!
She is a competitor so she is disappointed, but this American gal did great!
Sure hope that home cookin’ was yuuuuuuuuuuuuuu-mmy.
I had high hopes of an American medal in the Women’s Marathon, but it is a brutal race and easy to get bit in the butt. Shalane Flanagan 10th and Kara Goucher 11th (Desiree Davila DNF) is very good in such an unpredictable race. Way to go ladies!
The Guv We Love will be checking this new store out….guaranteed!
They are all pretty much basketball players and tennis players.
Guess once your payin’ the bills, tree hugging and surf worship is not so cool any more.
Take note travelers…..
Putting my big girl bloomer panties on my next trip there and going for it!
Mind your own business Feds…..love that Alaskan attitude.
This looks like a blast to me.
