My own internal debate

by monicasjungle

I’ve gotta be honest with you (you meaning general reader of my blog) – I’ve really been having an internal battle with myself in regards to how much political stuff I should or shouldn’t post.  If you’ve been reading for some time, you know I’m an Obama supporter. 

Ok, that was an understatement.  I’m a passionate, ardent, fervent, avid Obama supporter.  And sometimes it’s hard for me to bite my tongue.  (After John McCain annouced Sarah Palin as his VP pick, I couldn’t eat spicy food for days because my tongue was so raw) 

But that doesn’t mean I want my blog to turn into a Pro-Obama launch pad.  I don’t want this to become a “yes-I-drank-the-kool-aide” blog.  I sincerely don’t want to offend anyone.  If there is one thing I can’t stand, it’s people who will argue with you, in your face, toe-to-toe, all the while making themselves look worse for the wear.  That is not me.  I do not intend to change your mind.  (Sway you towards Obama … well, that’s different …)   

Obviously, not everyone is an Obama supporter.  I have near and dear family members who are equally impassioned McCain die-hards.  My very dear father is a Republican, but I love him anyway.  And he loves me, his ultra-liberal, left wing daughter. 

Mind you, I must admit that I’d rather have people interested in politics than disinterested.  I had a friend say to me, “I usually vote for the person who’s physical presence bothers me the least, so I won’t get sick of them in the next four years.”

Um…. 

So let’s make a deal.  I promise not to post *too many* political blogs (discretion mine, muahaha) as long as you promise to not stop reading.  (Ok, dad?)  And that goes for all of my other near and dear readers: Republicans, Independents, Socialists, Undecideds, etc.

Thank you for reading.
