Random musings:

1) Food Network's Throwdown, we clearly heard them say 'fuck'. Is this a new age in television? 'Fuck' is now okay to say on TV? Is there some sort of rule? Is one boob allowed now? Clearly, there was no memo passed out to me.

2) "Head Over Heels" - Isn't this a misnomer? My head is always over my heels. A little research on the universally (or maybe just socially) recognized authority on languages: Urban Dictionary shows that I am not the first person to have this thought. Just thinking that many songs should go back and fix their lyrics to be, well, correct. At least these guys have it right.

3) Women American beach volleyball players - Branagh/Youngs (one of them) gives the crowd the shush finger in the middle of the first set after an ace. Really? It's the first set! Give me a break! Of course, the Chinese came back to tie the set afterwards. Karma's a bitch, bitches.

Where are you now?

The Olympics have been on, in case you haven't noticed. While watching said Olympics, we have been inundated with shots of Americans, i.e. Michael Phelps and George Bush.

With all of these PR shots of the president, it got me thinking. (Uh oh)

Everywhere we look, people are making fun of the guy. However, he was re-elected! Where are the 50.7% of the people who voted for him? Did every member of the media vote for Kerry? This is not to say I support the current regime, but if I was new to US politics, I would be mighty confused.

Recap of the popular vote.
Popular vote
Bush: 62,040,610 (50.7%)
Kerry: 59,028,444 (48.3%)
(From Wikipedia)

Where are you, 50.7% of the people? If you voted this way, defend it. Or else vote differently! How sad would it be, if you voted one way and then derided the result?
