Obama and introspection

A while ago I watched Obama deliver a speech in Wisconsin. I had an epiphany.

It wasn't anything about his political position, though. It was him talking about how hard-working Americans are.

And I thought, "Wow, do I work hard? Honestly and truly, do I work hard?"

Well, I don't know. What I do know is that I obviously don't work hard enough.

Because it seems no matter how hard I work, I don't make enough money.

I blame all those men who passed through my life and did not offer to save me from myself by entering into holy wedlock with me ... (I'm kidding) ...

Oh, and by the way, I think it was X who turned me on to Keith Olbermann. Thanks, X! I love Keith Olbermann now. I want to bear his little left-wing offspring.

By the way x2, introspection is a good thing. I'm seeing an awful lot of people lately who don't practice it.

Did I say I respect him? hmmmmm
He makes me laugh; I'm not sure that equates to respect, necessarily. I would not, for instance, change an opinion I had formed independently based solely on anything he said.

I usually don't dole out my well-guarded respect in such a wily-nily manner.
