The Air Smelled of Obama

Yup, still excited about this.

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

Voting Isn’t As Exciting As People Claim

with 6 comments

2008-11-04

On Election Day, I read post after post after post about these…feelings people were experiencing upon voting in the 2008 presidential election. Elation, excitement, the I-just-cured-cancer jitters! They must’ve voted at Heaven’s gates or within Lothlorien. I dunno, I got nothing. Here’s how the voting went down for me: I drove to the middle school down the road, showed the old man my registration card, signed the sign-in book (was the first name, of course), voted, thanked the fellow guarding the booth, and left. Total time…roughly under five minutes. No bells, no whistles, not even a “I Voted!” sticker was obtained. It might have been the tamest five minutes of my life if it wasn’t for all the old man calling me Pauly and telling me that the girl that had just voted before me…well, he coached her father in Little League back in the day. Thanks, old guy. I wish I could’ve taken you home with me. You were oh so the c-word.

How could it be
I’m the only one who sees
Your rehearsed insanity

My Voter Registration Card Finally Arrives

You know what’s not lame though?

President Barack Obama.

Our nation’s very first…Hawaiian president. I could not be more pleased, proud, or sanguine about the days to come. You’ve done well, America. Almost all is forgiven. The chant is yes, we can and it gave me chills last night. Onwards, to happier days…

We are the champions, my friends
And we’ll keep on fighting til the end
We are the champions
We are the champions
No time for losers
Cause we are the champions…of the world

All the Same Words in Politics

with one comment

Hey, if you can’t wait for this election to be over and done with and just out of our minds say…poppycock.

POPPYCOCK!

And I wish I could tell you that it ended happy
Pretend like his bones weren’t practically snapping
Pretend like her gills didn’t dry up and suffer
But that’s a half dead pirate and a fish out of water
No lie, scouts honor, got a million more

Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink

with 3 comments

Yes, I know the wink is old hat now, but that’s what I get for drawing my comics behind the times. Also, and here comes Political Pauly, the fact that Sarah Palin was actually on SNL this past weekend does nothing for her character; in fact, if anything, it showed that she has less sense of humor than previously suspected. She cannot take a joke, and she’s far too late to even try.

That said, there’s been some nice MyLifeComics love going on lately. Here’s a mini-breakdown:
1. Imagine me puffing out my chest when I type this, but I made it on CuteOtters.com, people! CUTE OTTERS DOT COM! PLUS MYLIFECOMICS! THE GREATEST INTERNET CROSSBREED!
2. Also, reader Leaf Probably alerted me to the fact that she’s passing along the “Hooked on Your Blog” award to me! Thank ya very muchly!

Okay, that’s all. Only one comic for today, as I gotta draw more…

Why the bother, you’re no brother?
You’re the wrong I need
Boy, we all found an audience
while you found the worst of me
You got another thing

The Smile That Occupies My Mind

with 7 comments

Okay, so I’m going to come clean. I’ve gotten a lot more political in the last few months than I ever was during the entire three years I spent studying journalism at college. Still, I’ve had my mind made up for awhile now, and these debates seem to only lead to my confusion and befuddlement about the opposite podium’s perspective. I mean…some of the responses and facial ticks just make me want to scream the hair right off of my head.

So show me something we haven’t heard yet
But I’m not convinced and your hopeless songs won’t stick
But I, I’ll sing you something you won’t forget
For the first time I know this is now who I am
