South America in Snow

Lacey was parked out in front of our house for Christmas and the snow on the back of her window looked exactly like South America. I swear I can see where Sean lives in Argentina.

I thought it was pretty awesome. Lacey quickly took this photo before it dissappeared.

Christmas Day

We started out with a nice breakfast of cinnamon rolls, eggs and sausage. Lacey tried to wake us up early to open presents but we fought it until 8:30 a.m.

I got a few USC things today. Here is a fleece blanket from Page. We all got some nice presents, but the best of all was 40 minutes with Sean. He called us about 12:30 p.m. It was great to hear his voice and learn more about his area. He went to eat at a members house last week because the family is moving back to Peru. He said they first had some chicken, then the Dad brought out OCTOPUS!!! He said it didn't even really looked cooked. At first he was shaking his head no when offered the delight. He ended up trying it and said it was real rubbery. I guess I hogged most of the telephone time, I didn't realize I was doing it. At one point Sean had to say "let Mom ask a question". After the call, I missed him even more. It took awhile to shake off the feeling that we can't speak to him again until Mother's Day. It was also nice to find out they have air conditioning in the apartment since it's started to get real hot in Argentina. He sounded like he was doing well and a few times was using Spanish words instead of English, and when he would catch himself we would all laugh. What a special experience to talk to him.

We ended up invited a couple of the missionaries over for Christmas Dinner since nobody signed them up. One of the Elders, Elder Morris, went to BYU with Sean and they were in the same ward. We met Elder Rougeau for the first time tonight. He is from Utah but his family came from Lousiana. We have a feeling he is related to our dear friends, Frank and Lynn Rougeau from Lousiana. We will have to find out.

Here we are at the end of the day in front of our Christmas Tree. After the Elders left Lacey and I went to see the movie, Bedtime Stories, that just came out today. It is a great movie. You should go see it.

And here we had to take a picture of Elder Taylor Morris before he left the house.

Christmas Eve in Cody

Lacey wants to know what will happen if she sticks her tongue on this pole when it is freezing outside.....

Lacey and Page after our Christmas Eve dinner in Cody

Every Christmas Eve since we left California we have gone out for a special dinner as a family. Tonight we ate at the Rib and Chop House in Cody. Here is a picture of us outside the Rib and Chop after we had nice steak and chicken dinners. Then we headed back home to wrap up the day and get ready for Christmas.

It will be nice to have Lacey spend the night and spend the day with us tomorrow. Also the big phone call from Argentina by Elder Sean... how great is that going to be!!!!!!

Merry Christmas

O' Christmas Tree

We found this ornament of the sun that is on the Argentina flag. We added it to our tree this year in honor of Sean serving his mission in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Only three more days until Christmas, and that means a phone call from Sean. Missionaries can only call home twice a year: Christmas and Mother's Day. This will be the first time we get to talk to him since he has been in Argentina. Lacey will be coming over to share Christmas Day with us too. It's going to be a great Christmas for us this year. We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas too.

Coach Pete Carroll

Watch CBS Videos Online

USC's coach, Pete Carroll, was on 60 minutes tonight. Not only is he a great coach, the winningest coach in college football, but he also has helped lower gang violence in LA. We are lucky to have him. Fight On!

Connie Jean, I miss you

24 years ago today, I lost my dear Sister, Connie. She was driving to Utah from California and was involved in a tragic car accident and she did not survive. She was only 21. Connie is a great sister, and I love her so much. It's been a long time since she has been in my life, but I am comforted in knowing that families are eternal and can be together forever. That brings me much peace.

I am grateful for the great plan of happiness and the knowledge of knowing God is our Eternal Father and that Jesus Christ is my Savior and he lives! It is nice to reflect on the Savior during this Christmas season. We get so busy with all the activities of the holiday, but we all need to take time to think of the great gift we received and why we celebrate Christmas.

May you all have a more peaceful and reflective Christmas this year!

USC beats UCLA- Pac 10 Champs


USC beat it's cross-town rival in the Rose Bowl today for the 8th time in 9 years. It is our 7th straight Pac 10 championship and we are going to the Rose Bowl to play Penn State. It is our 7th straight 11 win season too. This has been the greatest run for USC football.

Today we wore home jerseys. Both teams worked it out so that we both could wear our home jerseys, which used to be the tradition when we both shared the same field at the Coliseum. It was nice to see it brought back. Cost us a time out.

We were dominate over the Bruins today. It's been a great year for USC.

After the game, Lacey and I went to Subway for dinner then hit downtown to watch the annual Christmas Parade. It wasn't a very big parade this year, but was fun to see all the lights.

Stocking to Argentina

Page and I had a great time shopping for and putting together this Christmas stocking for Sean. Page had the stocking made to look like Elder Gilmore. It even has a name tag in Spanish, and he is holding a Libro de Mormon (Book of Mormon).
If you click on the photo you will get to see a nice close up of the name badge. Pretty cool !

We filled it with lots of neat things for a missionary. Candy, nuts, toys, Mormon Tab tapes, CTR ring, ties.... what any 19 year old would want. We just hope it makes it safely in one piece to Buenos Aires, Argentina. We stayed away from anything chocolate since it is Summer down there and we didn't want a gooey mess.

Feliz Navidad

USC Humbles Notre Dame... Again

USC 38 Notre Dame 3
We have beat Notre Dame 7 straight years. We have had a 10+ win season for 7 straight years. And we are going to another BCS bowl game. Looks like the Rose Bowl against Penn State since Oregon beat Oregon State tonight and knocked them out of the Rose Bowl if we beat UCLA next week. The game was never in doubt. The Irish didn't even get a first down until the last play of the 3rd quarter. Our defense is so awesome this year. And the offense put in a great effort tonigt too Let's do this again next week agains the UCLA bRuins.....

Kid's News

Well, I thought I would just update the blog with some news from the children....
Sean wrote us from Argentina this week telling us he is going to have his first baptism on Saturday. We are so happy for him. He is going to be the one doing the baptizing too. His first time. He has been teaching a 19 year old boy the gospel for the last month and he has committed to be baptized. We are really excited and send our love down to Buenos Aires.

Lacey has been a road warrior for the last two days. She drove, with a friend, down to Shreveport, Lousiana to be a bridesmaid at her high school friend's wedding on Saturday. I personally would have rathered flown to Shreveport, but Lacey wanted to have her car with her, so she drove 24 hours (12 each day) to get there. She just got there tonight. She gets to make the two day trip back starting on Sunday, but I know she will have a great time seeing all her friends and hanging out in the Ark-La-Tex. I wish I was down there so I could eat a chocolate eclair from JulieAnnes......

The Ol' Homestead

My brother, Pat, and his daughter, Taylor

Me and my Mom

It was great seeing my family in California last weekend. I didn't get to spend a lot of time with them, but I am thankful for the time I did have. I have to talk my brother into coming up and visit me in Wyoming sometime. I know Mom will be ready once the snow melts.

USC Game against Cal

I found myself in downtown LA on Saturday afternoon for a football game.

On Saturday the 8th I was in California seeing my family, and I was able to get two tickets to the USC-Cal game. It wasn't too hard to convince my twin brother, Patrick, to come along with me to the game in the LA Coliseum.

So can you tell I am a USC Trojan?

We got seats in the end zone, but they were still great seats. I haven't been to a USC home game in 10 years. I sure do miss my season tickets. I had a blast and USC beat California 17-3.

Pat and I had a great time. I was in heaven.... USC football heaven....
and it was the "perfect day".

(Perfect Day= USC win, UCLA loss and Notre Dame loss)


I was at a conference for work in Scottsdale, Arizona last week. I really enjoyed the sunshine and the Mexican food! I also was able to drive by the Temple in Mesa before heading out to the airport to fly to California for the weekend with my Mom and Brother.

I love America

I feel blessed to be in a land that values freedom and liberty. A land where power is handed over through the ballot box and not guns. Some of my candidates won tonight and some lost, but Democracy is alive and well. And....I am proud how my fellow citizens of Wyoming voted today. I think they got it right....

My thoughts tonight:

ROMNEY 2012 !!!

USC destroys Washington

Guess what I did today? First I went to work because we moved into our new building yesterday. It is so awesome. I spent a couple hours putting things away in my new office. I took Page on a tour last night, and this morning, Lacey came over to see it. While there, she talked me into going to see High School Musical 3 with her and Page. (They have already seen it, but Lacey loves it and begged us to go again). The USC game wasn't being shown on TV in Wyoming anyway, so I went. Let's just say it was better than the 2nd one, but the first one is still the best.

Bigger news of the day is Texas Tech knocked off #1 Texas 39-33. Texas came back in the second half and almost won the game, but Tech hangs on with an awesome TD at the end. YIPEE!!

Also congrats to BYU. They hang on again this week with a come from behind TD to beat Colorado State 45-42 with only 29 seconds left. Way to go Cougars!

And the best victory of the day? USC 56- Washington 0. USC shuts out another opponent this year. Today was Homecoming at USC. Didn't get to go to the game today, but I will be in California next weekend and have two tickets to the USC- California game. I am taking my brother, Pat, to the game. I am so excited. I haven't been to a home game since I lived in California. Last time I had season tickets and was inside the Coliseum was during the 1998 season. We are talking a decade ago.

FIGHT ON, TROJANS !! Beat the Bears!

Vet's message to Obama

This is an awesome video from YouTube. You have to watch it !!

Thursday, October 30, 2008

Don't Mess with Obama

It's reported that the State of Ohio has been digging deep to investigate "Joe the Plumber". They are checking child support records, tax records, and anything else they can get their hands on. Of course they say it is not politically motivated. They check on all high profile people. Yeah right!

So now if you expose Obama for the liberal, wealth spreading, tax hiking individual that he truly is, you now will be investigated? An American citizen cannot ask a candidate a question, then disagree with the answer? And if a TV Station asks questions that Obama will not like, will he put them on the banned list? This is what American is voting for. Wow.

And a major complaint from liberals is that Bush implemented the Patriot Act and now Big Brother is everywhere. Bush is bad for eavesdropping on terrorists that want to kill innocent Americans and destroy this country, but an Average American says he doesn't like Obama's stand on the issues, and it's ok to call out the dogs?

What's up with that?

A Day with Lacey

Billings, Montana

Another weekend has come and gone. I spent a wonderful day with my daughter, Lacey, on Saturday. Page and I were going to take her to Billings with us this weekend as we shopped for Sean's Christmas goodies we want to mail to Argentina in about a month.

Well, Page came down sick on Friday and was down and out all weekend, but I still was able to go to Billings with Lacey and shop the day away. We ended up just getting a few things here and there, but it was nice to spend the day just talking and enjoying being together. We also had a nice lunch at Olive Garden. And it was a blast sitting on the massage chairs in the middle of the Mall with you Lacey. I could really get use to that!

Too bad we didn't get our way with kitten adoptions.... meow!

USC beats Arizona

USC 17 Arizona 10

The score was close, but USC wore Arizona out in the 2nd half. Arizona's offense couldn't get things going except for a gimme when USC fumbled deep in their territory. USC keeps their hopes alive with this win. USC knew this was going to be the trap game of the year, and we got out of Tucson with a win. Arizona has a really good team, USC was just a little better tonight.

I'm Sick of the Sarah Palin Attacks

I am really tired of the daily barrage of attacks on the GOP VP candidate, Sarah Palin. Some are really getting ridiculous. Her email has been hacked, she is called Caribou Barbie, Her family is attacked and horrible things are being said of them or joked about them. CNN misquotes a National Review Article and asks her to respong to being stupid... the list goes on and on. Now they are attacking money spent on her clothes, yet just as much was spent on "Greek columns" for Obama's acceptance speech, but that's ok? What about the cost for Biden's botox or hair plugs? That's ok? Not a word. But the media jumped on the clothes story like it was the biggest scandal to rock the western world. The other day I turned on Hardball with Chris Matthews and the hatred and venom coming from him was amazing because Palin said to a third grader that the VP gets to be in charge of the Senate and help shape policy. He made a crack that she should have bought a copy of the constitution instead of all those high cost clothes, and she wasn't fit to be VP because she didn't know the job description, etc... GET OFF IT, CHRIS! You are such an Obama homer. Aren't you the one that got a "tingle"up your leg when you heard Obama speak? Give me a break! And did you get on the airwaves to say Biden is not fit to be VP because in his debate with Palin he screwed up about where the VP duties were located in the constitution. And Biden has been in Washington for something like 26 years? Yet I never hear critical reports on Obama or Biden ever. Only McCain and Palin, and mostly Palin.

Sarah Palin is the most popular governor in the United States. She knows a lot more about energy issues than any of the other three running for President and VP. She has more executive experience than all the others too. And her political views are aligned with mine more than the other three too. Is the media and Democratic party afraid of Palin? Is that why all the personal attacks? They are not going at her for her political views, but her personal life, family life, looks, clothes, gaffs. It's disgusting. I am sick of the whole lot of them.

Am I wrong, or is the media not even trying to hide their bias anymore? They are just an arm of the Democratic campaign. I never hear them say one good thing about any Republican. But the Democrats will save us all and walk on water. Unbelievable.

Democrats have controlled both Houses of Congress for two years. Yep, the last two years have been wonderful, haven't they? How many states are controlled by Democratic Governors and Legislatures? Are those states just doing wonderful? I guess it's all Bush's fault, not the Democrats in charge of those states.

I'm just really frustrated. If the country votes Obama, so be it. But I can't abide the press giving Obama a pass on most everything and going after only the Republican ticket.

Am I off base?

USC destroys the Cougars

USC 69 Washington State 0

First back-to-back shut out for USC since 1971. Biggest defeat in WSU history. Last time WSU was shut out at Martin Stadium was 52 years ago. Last time USC had that big of a shut out was in 1931 when they beat Montana 69-0.

USC didn't try to run up the score either. The coach started pulling out the first string as early as the first quarter. By the third quarter we had all our 2nd string in. By the 4th quarter we had our 3rd string quarterback in and they still scored just running basic plays. Not a good day for the Cougars. I was planning on attending the game this year too since it is the closest Pac-10 school to northern Wyoming, but I ended up attending a wedding reception of my boss's son tonight. (Great cake by the way- yes I had a piece!). But I am excited to say, I will be in California on the 8th and got tickets to the USC-Cal game. So I am taking my twin brother with me to a game in the Coliseum this year. I can't wait.

I am sad to say another Cougar team lost this week too. BYU lost at TCU (a very tough opponent) on Thursday night. I was hoping for an undefeated season, but they are still having a great year and I am excpecting them to beat Utah!

USC shuts out Sun Devils

USC 28 Arizona State 0

USC is back on track and beat the Sun Devils today in the Coliseum. We looked much better in the first half than the second, but even with 5 turnovers, Arizona State could not capitalize and score. With it snowing outside today, it was a great day to stay indoors and watch a football game.

Fight On, Trojans

It's SNOW time

It's October 11th and we have snow.

Speaking of the #11...... for those of you who have been supportive of my weight loss attempts. I have lost 11 pounds in 2 1/2 weeks... so far. Not too bad for a guy who loves to eat!

Home Alone

Well, I took Page to the airport on Saturday. She is visiting her Mom in California for a week. So I guess I am a temporary Bachelor, so what did I do this weekend?

1. I went to Walmart to buy some bread
2. I watched Saturday morning session of General Conference
3. Did a load of laundry
4. Watched Saturday afternoon session of conference
5. Lacey came over to wash clothes and we ran out of detergent, so I ran to the store
6. I cheated on my diet when I bought a frozen pizza and brought it home (thank goodness Lacey ate part of it or I would have eaten the whole thing)... but hey I've lost 6 pounds in two weeks!
7. Lacey and I watched "Other Side of Heaven" on BYU Channel
8. I went to the Priesthood Session at the Chapel on Saturday night. It was so cool to see the MTC Elders Choir sing during the session. I swear I saw Tim Judd from our ward and I was thinking about Sean the whole time. The choir director, Brother Brenchley use to be my Bishop in California too.

9. When I got home I got to watch some of the USC-Oregon game. USC was already winning 34-10 when I got home, in the third quarter. I got to see USC make a field goal for 3 more points, then ABC switched the game over to the Ohio State-Wisconsin game. WHAT!?! After that game was over, they didn't come back to the USC game so I didn't see the last score, but USC won it 44-10. Looks like we got re-focused.
10. Then I went to bed early (well early for me)

On Sunday:

11. I got up showered and got dressed (wow)
12. I washed the dishes and picked up the living room before Lacey and her friend came over to watch conference.
13. Watched the Mormon Tab right before Conference was starting
14. Watched Sunday morning conference (Lacey's friend didn't show up)
15. Cooked Lacey some eggs, sausage and biscuits (so I cheated on my diet again- but didn't really pig out or anything)
16. Lacey left after the first session, and I just layed on the couch watching tv
17. I watched the afternoon session of Conference, all by myself and was singing with the choir. Man, I would love to be in that choir someday!
18. I put up some Halloween decorations in the living room
19. Channel surfing
20. Ate a salad for dinner (trying to be good)
21. Watching the extra innings of the Angel/Red Sox game. Boston should have won it, but Angels hanging on. I am surprised Angels got swept this year.
22. Posting this blog, maybe will watch the rest of the game, but probably go down to the bedroom and read before I hit the hay.

Big day tomorrow. All our furniture is being delivered for our new clinic and I have an executive meeting monday night. So, as you can see Page, I am staying out of trouble..... I hope you are having a great time with your family in California. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU !!

Sarah Palin was AWESOME

I think Sarah Palin won the VP Debate last night agains Joe Biden. "Say it ain't so, Joe!" I have to admit I was nervous before the debate because the press has been successful in casting doubt about Palin's ability to lead. For me, the doubt is gone. She held her ground against a Senator who has been in Washington for 35 years. She took them on in foreign policy declaring they want to wave the white flag of surrender. She took on the "good ol' boys" when she said something to the effect that she must not be a Washington insider and know the lingo because she doesn't know how they can say they voted for something then say they were against it. The American people want you to be honest and just tell them why you voted for it. Brilliant! Right On, Sarah. She did great with the energey independence topic too. We need to "Drill, baby, Drill!" and "All of the above". Exactly right.

Biden was factual and had a few good rebutals too, but didn't connect like Sarah did. And when he lied, it was so obvious, I was yelling at the screen, "That's a big fat lie!" And I loved how he said he would be sitting in the room with Obama made a decision. Why? Obama can't handle it on his own? That was a big slap on Obama by his VP. And what was with his eyes? Did he get an eye job? They looked wierd. And by the way, he has nice dentures too!

So what did you think of the debate? I don't know if it will change peoples minds of who they will vote for, but Palin was the big winner last night.

I dreamed of Obama last night

I actually had a dream of Obama last night. Pretty weird if you ask me. Well this is how the dream went. We both were going to USC in the same field of study so we knew each other pretty well, and he was running for President (after all he is a great multi-tasker as his peeps like to point out as to the reason he didn't have to run to Washington to help solve the countries financial crisis....). Anyway, we were going to dinner together, you know, just hanging out one night- I guess he had time during the campaign. We were just talking about him maybe becoming President, and I say to him:

"If you invite me to the White House, I will vote for you!" He then replied that he would have me come by every month. I then responded that I didn't need to come every month but at least once in the next 8 years..... (I remember in my mind as I was sleeping and viewing my dream, I was horrified that I said 8 years, assuming he would win and be re-elected).

We then sat down at our table to eat dinner and he pulls out a list from his pocket of all his friends at USC and I see my name on his list and he puts a "yes" next to my name as if he just checked off another vote for him.

My initial thought was, "He is just being nice to me because he wants my vote!" He really isn't my friend after all but just is offering me dinner and a white house visit so I will vote for him!" I was really disappointed.

Last thing I remember before I woke up was thinking it was weird that he was just now getting his Master's Degree...

So what do you think? Anybody want to interpret this dream for me?

Debate Viewers?

So did you watch the first Presidential Debate last night between Senator McCain and Senator Obama? Initial reports show that it had just an average viewership. Experts are blaming it on the fact it was on a Friday night.
I have to admit, I did not watch the debate and I am a political junkie. I just didn't care to watch it. I am pretty firm in my support of the McCain/Palin ticket. Page and I wanted to go to dinner and get some shopping done, and I figured I could hear a re-cap when I got home. We went toplus Cody for dinner and every restuarant was packed, plus High School Football had people out in Powell and Cody. I thought because of the debate, we would get seated pretty fast. Nope, we had to wait to eat. So many had the same idea as we did.

So when I got home, I turned on the cable news shows and Fox had McCain winning and CNN and MSNBC had Obama. What a surprise. So if you watched the debate, what was your opinion? Who do you think won? Did it make you change your mind if you wer already commited to a candidate, or if you were undecided, did it help you make up your mind?

My mom called later that night and she said she watched the debate. I asked her who she thought won and she couldn't really say, but said she was still supporting McCain.

Aren't Presidential Elections fun? I am sure the VP debate will be better watched since people will want to see how Sarah Palin does against the old vetran, Biden. (Just my prediction).

USC Falls Hard

Oregon State beat the #1 ranked USC Trojans 27-21
The score appears closer than what I watched on the TV last night. USC was dominated top to bottom from a team that is not ranked and has already lost two games. How did this happen? Everyone had USC in the title game this year. We beat Ohio State big and it was just a stroll in the park to the championships. Well, I think that's what the team thought, becuase USC did not come out to play. I think they think teams will just bow to them. Well Oregon State, to their credit, ran right at them and beat the kings. I had to turn off the game it was so painful. We only looked decent in the third quarter, when we scored 14 points.
Oregon State's, Rodgers, was the star of the show. If you watched the game, you had to be impressed with that guy. And he is only a Freshman! Well so long National Championship and the Crystal Football. Now we must focus on the Rose Bowl trophy, which is still a pretty good prize...

McCain is showing better Leadership

Although I don't think McCain is the better man on the economy vs. Romney, I still do not trust Obama to run anything in the government, especially the economy! And it was very clear to me how much he is only in it for himself (Obama) by his reaction today when McCain asked that they both suspend their campaign for a few days to get back to Washington, D.C. to work on the financial crisis hitting the country. McCain is putting country first. He walks the talk! Obama's response? Call me if you need me. Obama loves to attack McCain on the things he has done, but at least he gets in there and does something. What has Obama done in his role as US Senator that means anything? He can't even suspend his campaign a couple days to go do the job the voters of IL elected him to do? US Senate Leader, Reid, said they didn't need Obama...... they got that right!!!

I'm sure they will paint McCain as just scared to debate, or doing this for a gimmick, but I believe McCain does put country first. And why would he be afraid to debate foreign policy- the topic of Friday's debate. McCain has more foreign policy experience in his little finger compared to Obama's whole body.

I have more respect for McCain for his decision to go solve our national crises over his desire to be President, something Obama just doesn't get.....

Where's Romney?

With all the financial stresses facing our country at the moment, I can't help but wonder how the GOP campaign would be going if Romney was the Republican candidate. Can anyone touch Romney on economic issues? I would feel a lot better if Romney was still around.

I'm finally doing it! I am going to try to get some of this excess weight off of me! I have been on a "structured"diet for two days. In the past, I would tell myself, "just eat less" or "eat healthier" and I would go on my merry way getting a couple tacos here or a milkshake there.....

Well a couple weeks ago, my blood sugar spiked up the the 300 range. UGH! I was feeling lousy, and I realized, this is it! When am I going to wake up about my health?

So, I am trying a diet that will bring down my blood sugar and hopefully my weight. During the day it's pretty easy for me, but night time is aweful! I want to raid and eat anything and everything. Night time is usually when I consume lots of food. I'm not hungry, but I want to eat so bad before I go to bed. So far so good in staying away from the tempting morsels.

I won't tell you how much I weigh, but I will be happy to post the pounds I drop on my blog. Maybe if I know I have to post my progress on my blog, I will be more committed. So if you see my around, please don't offer me an ice cream sundae, or a bag of fries, or just about anything that I LOVE TO EAT.

Some words of encouragement will be nice.

So here I go to find the healthier Mike!

Tuesday, September 16, 2008

And you question McCain's integrity?

I know this is a bloody campaign and both sides are swinging hard, but I have to vent. Why is the media hell-bent on getting Obama elected? I am getting sick of the Palin bashing. It's never ending. And then any hesitation (ie, what is the Bush doctrine?) they all gang jump her and cry how she cannot be a hearbeat from the Presidency.

Hello! Obama has no foreign credentials and he would be the Presdient!!! Doesn't anybody see that? The media doesn't....

Why I really am blogging today is because I read where Palin is being mocked because she didn't mention the e-bay plane or the bridge from nowhere in her Ohio campaign stop today. As I see it, at least she tried to sell the plane on E-bay. So it didn't sell. But she found a broker and sold it. She just didn't give up! (Like the Dems want to do in Iraq... opps sorry, low blow....). Then they mock her because it sold for less than what she paid for it. Ok America, how many of you have sold a used car for less than what you paid for it? Give me a break media!!!!

Now let's get to the Bridge from Nowhere...... Palin likes to say she voted against the Bridge from Nowhere, which is true... but what the Dems and Media love to point out that she use to be for it before she was against it. Ok, that may be well and true, but why isn't the media reporting this as loudly as they are reporting about Palin....

OBAMA and BIDEN both voted FOR the Bridge to Nowhere, not once, but twice!!!! They actually voted to fund the brige. Palin never did that. Yet often is that pointed out by the Media? Boy, is that NOT showing integrity....

Coverage of this campaign is really a joke. Is anybody seeing this? I am sure the Liberals think this is fair and objective reporting, but it is actually getting me very upset. It's one thing for the Obama campaign to stretch the truth, but I would expect our free press to challenge that if it is wrong. Or point out hypocricy on both sides. It just seems to be a one way street with Republicans getting rail roaded.

Is it too much to ask America to have a press corp with integrity?

So am I just a biased conservative?

Does the media seem to be losing it?
