The most current thing annoying me (Reader's Digest version) is that Michele Bachmann got all over Perry for mandating that girls in his state get the HPV vaccine. She's appalled and thinks little girls shouldn't be subjected to a government injection. It should be a parent's choice. Oh, and the vaccine causes mental retardation. Well geez, that was unfortunate. She almost had a real argument there and she blew it. Is her issue that it's a sex-related vaccine and therefore bad/wrong so no one should "have" to get it if they don't want or is it that she thinks government should not be mandating what health precautions parents should be forced to take? If it's the latter, then why isn't she carrying on about all the other vaccines parents are forced to give their children?
I can't discuss politics any further because it makes my head hurt. I really feel a lot of these politicians make comments that don't even support their own positions. On the upside, I find that Bachmann makes Palin seem hardly troubling at all. Almost kind of warm and fuzzy.
But guess what, Palin got herself all over the news today! There is now a book out, The Rogue, which I assume is meant to discredit her "I'm a good Christian" routine. The book is claiming that Palin "had a fetish for black guys for a while" and had a one-night stand with a future NBA player. Oh and she's done cocaine and had an affair while she's been married. Good stuff. I'm wondering what she did to this author to piss him off to this degree. And let's just jump back for a second and be a little offended that the author calls a white woman liking black men a "fetish." I think "preference" would have been a better choice of words. When you say "fetish" it kind of makes it seem like it's weird for white people to be attracted to black people. Just saying. Bottom line is that this book isn't going to help Palin any, but it really doesn't make her any more or less qualified than she was last week before the book came out.
Crap, I said I wasn't going to talk any more about politics. Okay, moving on. What else is going on that makes my brain get all scrambled? Comedy Central roasting Charlie Sheen. That kind of numbs the brain. They have been talking about this all summer and all Charlie's requirements about what better not get mentioned. Now we have to hear how we have to wait until next week until it's aired on TV. Snore. What is there left to say about Sheen that's even funny any more? Exactly.
