Let's Get Ready to Rumble

Well here we are on the edge of the last Presidential Debate.  Who, when, where, why, What?...  You mean you are paying attention to sports but didn't know the Last Debate is less than 24hrs. away?  Whatchutalkingaboutwillis?....
The debates are like sporting events to those of us who are immersed in Politics.  So that would make the very last Presidential debate the Superbowl.  In case you hadn't noticed Greek Girl is up on her politics.  Hello... I'm Greek, remember we invented Politics, and acting and all kinds of other things that benefit society on a daily basis.  It's true, google it. ;)
No matter which way you roll, and we are all entitled to think what we want and vote how we want.  What is important to me is that you do actually get off of your duff and vote.  Remember good men and women fought and died so we could have the freedoms we have here in America today, and one of those very important freedoms is to exercise that right to vote for our elected officials.  Just think there are countries in the world where people would love to be able to have a say in what happens in their governments.  So lets not take for granted our sacred right.
One thing I do have to point out though is I think the debates would be a whole lot more productive if the Moderators would actually do their dang jobs and Moderate, vs. lead or direct.  Can anyone say Candy Crowley?  Seriously did she make anyone else itch or was it just me?  Good grief.  You would think she were running for President.
Let's take a trip back to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary to make sure we know what we are talking about shall we?

Definition of MODERATOR

1 one who arbitrates : mediator
2 one who presides over an assembly, meeting, or discussion: as
a : the presiding officer of a Presbyterian governing body
b : the nonpartisan presiding officer of a town meeting
c : the chairman of a discussion group
3 a substance (as graphite) used for slowing neutrons in a nuclear reactor

Guess ole' Candy forgot about that part in section 2B - you know the "non-partisan" part.  Lets just hope that Bob Shieffer takes his role a little more literally, serious and professionally.  Our country would benefit from you know, journalists who actually reported the news for a change regardless of whom it may hurt in the polls.

Anyway if you want to know where to find Greek Girl at 9pm EST on Monday night, I'll be on the couch, with my slippers on, popcorn and Dunkin's in hand, surrounded by the fur-kids. (now there are still 5 temporaily until "Pepe-laden" see last weeks blog finds a home) I'll be there with the fur-kids, yelling at the TV, ranting on my twitter account, and I'm guessing cursing in Greek.

Hope you enjoy the debate, have a beautiful day!

Blessings, Love & Music ~
