"The Monster Mash"

Let’s face it. John Kerry looks like Herman Muenster. And GW is a Conservative monster, so tonight’s presidential debate could most certainly be called “The Monster Mash”.

I know – you didn’t watch it. I did. Why? Out of interest’s sake – and because Thursday night TV just isn’t what it used to be. Plus, I wanted to see how Kerry would fare when he went toe-to-toe with Bush, because goodness knows that he can’t shut him down when he’s on the other side of the country. So, I decided to watch. And I was pleasantly surprised.

First impressions? Kerry had a nice tan. Was he vacationing in Hawaii before the debate? Nah – probably a fake tan. But who knows. He’s also got very white teeth. Those Crest Whitestrips do the trick I tell ya. GW, on the other hand, looks kind of pale – and his hair? What is up with that? He looks – frumpy. That’s the only way I can describe it. He looks frumpy, and not very presidential to me. And that smirk is there already. Puhlease! Do I have to look at that smirk for an hour and a half…

Funniest moment for me: GW calling terrorists “folks”. Huh? “Folks” are people back home. They’re nice, friendly – THEY are folks! They’re not people that kill civilians for some bogus cause. And that smug grin of GW’s. It makes my blood boil (I never realized it until now, but GW is also an abbreviation for gunshot wound – coincidence to the war in Iraq where more than a thousand soldiers have needlessly died? I think not).

I thought Kerry handled himself quite well. He looked comfortable, polished, calm and in control. Bush looked very defensive and tense. Kerry referred to himself as the President at one point. To me that showed confidence – to others it may show arrogance. And Kerry did not waver on any of his issue stances as he has been known to do; he also defended himself well. Bush had his good moments as well – no one-liners (he’s incapable of them anyways), but some good rebuffs – when he wasn’t on the defensive. But he did have a few “um, uh…” moments that made me wonder if he was ever going to finish a sentence. Both candidates did have their moments of arrogance and stuffiness as well. But it was a pretty even debate, however, extra points go to Kerry for actually looking and sounding like he could be President of the United States, something he hasn’t been able to show up ’til now.

And on the lighter side…

I got my hair cut today. Yeah! It was at a place called “Banzai”, which the owner informed me means happiness, and is a shout of exultation in Japanese. A woman named Lynn cut my hair – and she’s’under 5 feet tall for sure. She was really nice and we both agree that the weather is the best part of living here, especially since it was sunny and 20 some degrees here today. By the way, didn’t it snow in Saskatchewan today? 😉 Hey – maybe GW should have had a Banzai haircut!

    Hmmm fake tan for a debate…..sounds oddly familiar….let me think….June…. Stephen Harper?? Yes that’s it. he too looked like he just got back from the Caribbean. Maybe someone should have told Kerry to beware the curse of the fake tan.

    I’m sure your hair looks beautiful! I got mine done yesterday. It looks exactly the same as it does every other time. I consider that a successful haircut!

    Take it easy!
