It's official; I have successfully ended a potential friendship.  
So it seems that Ranger Zombie is no longer speaking to me because I made fun of his campaign to unseat Tom Delay. He was recruiting me for Moveon.org again, and I was not taking things seriously, so when he said that all Republicans are bad and we need to unseat them, I responded that I didn't think all Republicans were bad. The Govenator is borderline fantastic! He keeps me amused! Waaaaaaay better than that Angelides guy.

Ranger Zombie: Poop...what about tom delay??? HE is one of our targets...
Me: Target for what? He withdrew from the race back in June and resigned from Congress.
I suppose what you mean is his replacement. Well, given than Delay is not running but will be on the ballot, that makes it hard for a Republican to win, because they have to rely on a write-in candidate. I don't follow the politics too closely, because I'm lazy, so I haven't heard who the Republicans are supporting as the replacement.
R. Z.: She is a bitch...and canidates for the house have won (4 to be exact) on a write in ballot...

And that's it. I haven't heard a word from him since, and he does not respond to IM's or e-mail.
Is that RIDICULOUS or what? I suppose that this is a serious issue and I oughtn't be so flippant about it, but really. It's politics. Who can take it seriously?

Politics are a very touchy subject matter... I've found that both parties get especially passionate about their sides. But more so that the democratic side becomes bitter if you do not agree with them, and basically disregard you as their friend, and now you're their personal enemy. Bummer!

This is why I don't take sides, and I don't talk politics. Do you remember in like early 2000 you and I were talking about Bush, and I was defending him, and I can now honestly say, I knew nothing about politics to even open my mouth about what I thought, because the only thing I knew about the election, was whoever my parents were voting for, was the right man. HA! :P

I can honestly say that even now that I don't know nearly enough about politics as I should, but I'll shoot my mouth off about it anyway. I hate to think what I was like in high school - I was probably an arrogant little brat!

Now that I think about it, neither of my parents liked Bush much so I'm sure when I was in high school that influenced what I thought, too. Isn't it weird how that works?
