Women in Politics


It’s been a while since I posted anything political… what with the move, and being more concerned with my own self and not with the world around me…. but I finally registered to vote here in New Mexico (Bernalillo County to be specific). And I discovered my local farmer’s market too!

Things are heating up here in New Mexico. First off, its chili time. What that means is the harvest is coming in and the chiles are roasting all over town. More on that later….

Secondly, we’re a swing state. Which means that there’s presidential politics all over the place. Obama just opened an election office in the South Valley (his sixth in the city, 34th in the state. Note McCain only seems to have 6 offices statewide not sure what that means). I’ve yet to explore the South Valley, and even though its only like 10 minutes away from downtown Albuquerque it’s much more rural.

Michelle Obama spoke at the University of New Mexico about a week ago… I would have liked to have seen her, but I heard that the free tickets were “sold” out. Later my friend Cassie told me that she was on campus and was able to attend– apparently at some point they just let people in. McCain and his beauty queen sidekick were here too. I hear Obama will be here again before election day… and I’m sure McCain will be as well, and their respective running mates….

Which brings me to the purpose of my post. The funniest damn thing I’ve seen in a long time– thanks Stack!
