Sorry it's been a busy day...

Have not had much time to blog today, but I wanted to give you folks some content.   This was sent to me today by a friend.  It is entertaining.  I did get to climb on AC ducts today at work and got a pretty nice cut on my elbow from it. 


I'm a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight.....
* If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic, different.

* Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, and this is a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you're radical and unpatriotic, perhaps even Muslim.

* Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're just a maverick.
* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.                    

* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.
* If you spend 3 years as a dedicated community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor,  spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 3 years in the United States Senate representing a state of  13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl,  4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.
* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising two lovely daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.    

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a real Christian.
* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the very fiber of society.               

* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're a responsible example for others.
* If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.                   

* If your husband is nicknamed 'First Dude',  with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

If you are endorsed by unions and have worked as a community organizer, you are an elitist.

If you are endorsed by a CEO who is married to a British Lord, you are for the common man
