Papa Tomato, Mama Tomato and Baby Tomato

This allegation kind of concerns me. I mean, personally, I don’t care that she said it, and I don’t think it’s that big a deal. If Cheney can get away with telling someone to “fuck off”, I think what Ms. Kerry said pales in comparison, then.

This said, people are a fickle sort, and it doesn’t take much snubbing for the media to come back and bite you hard in the ass. Dissing another public servant is one thing; dissing the holier-than-thou media is another.

The other reason this concerns me is that just last night, I was watching a bit of Hardball and Heinz Kerry was on. She was not the most imposing speaker, that’s for sure. It looked like she was a bit lost as to what she was trying to say, and seemed to get off-track quite a bit. Again, public perception’s a bitch.

Now, I’m not shallow enough to base my vote on the choice of a running mate, much less a potential First Lady. There are others out there who will inevitably do so, however, as well as those who will try their damnedest to make sure it is spun that way… this is the big issue.

Then again, smears occur every which way, in every direction, in an election year. Maybe this won’t be such a big deal.

In a less political note, this article about Sterling looks to try and be kind of a “feel good” story about the town. However, it just makes me feel kinda sad, and perhaps a bit guilty.
