In Memoriam: A Dedication to Tim Russert

Whew, this presidential election has been a whirlwind of twists and turns. From Hillary losing to Obama, to McCain picking Sarah Palin as his running mate, and all of the other events in between. One event, though, especially sticks out in my mind, and that is the death of Tim Russert. A lot had already happened with the presidential election when Russert's sudden passing in June at the age of 58. Sometimes I wonder what he would have thought of all of this. While it appears that Russert supported Obama, it is a shame he did not live to see this historic election come to pass. I'd like to think, though, that Russert is smiling down at all of this chaos and relishing every minute of it.

Undecided Voters: Why can't they make up their damned minds already?

Ugh, if there is anything that annoys me, it's folks who can't make up their minds. Check out this hilarious Late Show with David Letterman piece featuring comedian Andy Kindler. In it, Kindler asks a group of undecided voters questions about why they are, basically, unsure of which candidate to vote for.

As Letterman says in the beginning in this piece, the Undecided (as I like to call them) had TWO YEARS to decide. What's the friggin holdup?! But in thinking about it a little more deeply, it's kind of not fair to be so pushy towards the Undecided because it's not like they knew for sure who was going to be running. I mean, if you told me two years ago that Barack and McCain would be the two candidates, I wouldn't believe you, so I guess I can kind of see where the Undecided are coming from. But they had better get over their indecision and wishy-washiness and pick a side. At least that is better than not voting at all, Dontcha think? ;)
