The poster for my new political party: The Catechism Party (visioned by Vincenzo)

Rumor has it the nearly dead Democratic celebrity Sen. Ted Kennedy may address the DNC tonight.

In response, the Republicans plan to bring out their nearly dead celebrity at their convention: Sen. John McCain.

A Cranky Cathy political quote “All the major party candidates suck.” (let Cokie Roberts top that level of erudite insight!)

Is the addition of Biden to the Democratic ticket supposed to make us burn with barely suppressed longing for an Obama/Biden Presidency? Is Obama holding his 2 fingers to his lips and furrowing his brow supposed to make us believe he’s actually thinking beyond his pay grade as opposed to following his media advisor’s directions? Is anyone confident that McCain is solidly pro-life? Does anyone wish Howard Dean would scream? (I do, I loved that!)

Is anyone, besides me (and Mitchell!), sorry the true unscripted drama of the Olympics has been replaced by this scripted political hogwash? You know it's a sad day when an event in CHINA looks more unpredictable than anything in the U.S.!!! The only thing amusing me these days (besides reworking the pronouns and verbs of Father Joncas’ “Take and Eat”) is the always shadowy threat of the Clintons over the DNC. Who knows what they or their friends could do during the Democratic convention? Will someone end up dead in a park?

Who is there for those of us who vote morally? No one. This is what the "common good" plank has given us. The PC Goldilocks and the Three Bears platform: Not too hard, not too soft. Since absolutes are to be frowned upon, it can't be just right either. No one wants to go to Hell alone.

I think I’ll vote for Yoda as a write-in.

Or you COULD just vote for the local Anarchist party...check out my blog for their website.

And I'm offended...I've had lots of photoshop opps at my blog this summer but Vincenzo doesn't love me like he loves you.

Although he DID do a wonderful job on the Akron Zoo info I sent him.

I miss V.'s stuff on your blog! If you don't post, he has nothing to make fun of!

Um...wait...that came out wrong....!

Earlier today I was actually contemplating "B16" as a write-in! :D Nevermind that he's not an American citizen...
Joncas is a priest!?!?!?! And when I Googled him I learned he actually teaches at St Thomas?!?!?!? Somehow, I'm not surprised about that part...
I seriously had no idea he's a priest. When does he have time to write all that crappy musis?

crappy "music", I meant (of course)

"Who knows what they [Clintons] or their friends could do during the Democratic convention?"

Well, you know for sure the call-girls are going to make a killing, which the Obama camp will tax to mere pennies.

I don't like Obama of McCain..

BTW, welcome back! And thank you for the B-day wishes:0)

I meant "Obama or McCain." But you know, "Obama of McCain" does have a nice sound to it.

Well look who the cat dragged in. I'm glad you are back too - I have gotten in so much trouble since you have been gone... it is so not funny. I have offended just about everyone in the blogosphere this time.

So you don't like Obama, huh? And was something wrong with the Olympics? And so like you hate old people too?

I put a "latest post" feed on my blog just so that I would know when you came back. It is great to see you again...well, I did see you on FB a couple of times this summer...but thanks for your "cranky" thoughts about the election. Brought a smille to my busy day!

Tom: Nice slip of the tongue!

Hi Adrienne and SF!

I meant "quiet" See, what Tom started! Gosh, I forgot to give Chris a shoutout! Hi, Chris! I stink as a blog hostess. See, how my skills have fallen down! Good question, Chris. Baffles me too.

Wow - "blog hostess" that is fodder - Vincenzo! Get it going!

Dear Cathy, I removed that undignified and offensive post I did on your home-coming. I apologize for going overboard sometimes and being way too silly for my shirt.

Ter: Huh? Now how else can I get more readers like anna b to come by? Oh, I see your plan now!
