Gaseous matters

Seen yesterday whilst pursuing my HIGHEST STEPCOUNT DAY EVER:

When was the last time you saw a 1?

Many people have suggested that lowering gas prices is a ploy by the GOP to entice people to vote Republican this November. I, myself, do not think Oh my, such good prices on gas! Thank you, Ken Blackwell! Clearly the price of this gas is thanks to YOU! Here is my vote!. Who does that? If that's actually the case, then I'm mostly just disgusted that the Republican party thinks so poorly of us. I will take my cheap gas, thank you, and drive to the polling location where I will vote for the candidate whose stances I agree with.

Speaking of politics, it's really bizarre having moved from the liberal part of moderateish Michigan to the conservative part of conservative Ohio. The other night there was a political commercial on TV that basically sounded like:

  • Candidate X doesn't hate poor people!
  • Candidate X doesn't hate gays!
  • Candidate X doesn't think it's a budgetary or national security priority to spend billions of dollars sending the Army to shoot Mexicans as they cross the border!

....This commercial is brought to you by the Campaign to Elect Candidate Y.

Buh? The commercials around here are clearly geared toward an audience that is not me.

I felt that way when I lived there, too. They'd be like that and I'd be like "Seriously, that's a bad thing?"

Oh, and KB (not toy store). So sad.
