I love all things retro!

Er, scratch that. I love most things retro. And for full disclosure, I voted for one John McCain in 2000. Registered for a party (R) for the first time that year. I'd been an Independent prior to 2000. Now I'm registered as a (D) and will indeed vote for Obama. I think he will help my family and this nation in these troubling times. Watch this ad, have a laugh and let's just be glad we're not the women buried alive in Pakistan for protesting our arranged marriages to men old enough to be our fathers. Which brings me back to, aw, heck, just watch the ad if you want to.

Ooooh, good one ...

(but truth be told, half my extended family is retro, from the perspective of computer use and email that is)

Are they gunning to run the free world? Can they bag a moose at 20 paces? ;)

A moose, no....A duck, maybe...

I want one of those giant cordless phones! And those glasses! I love retro, too!

Glad you've joined the Dems!

"Honor killings" are disgusting, and I can't believe they still take place in this century.

I had a "portable" cell that I used -- it was my bosses -- it came in a a small suitcase! I was the coolest chick ever in my Red Jetta Wolfsburg on that monster phone... This was 1987! I also had a portable computer - 50 pounds of LUG. And a tiny green screen. Alas, McCain couldn't use that one either.

I need a President who is CURRENT and forward thinking. McCain may just have us close to war with Russia - and Sarah Palin seems to be trying to prove she's a tough candidate (which she needs to do for her party, I get it.) by jumping to, "Oh yes, we'd go after Russia if needed." I'd have preferred if her first words were, "Ronald Reagan worked hard to bring down that wall (assuming she knows about the Berlin wall) and end the cold war with the European Communist nations. We can not return to those dangerous times, especially now with the dangers facing our nation from The Middle East and terrorists. Therefore, we'd first turn to diplomacy...." Nope, she wanted to prove she's shooting Sarah - the toughest gal in town. And for CHRIST'S sake (and I mean the real Jesus Christ, not the swear) do NOT use GOD and WAR in the same sentence - it makes her sound no different than a Jihadist. She can look that word up in the dictionary if needed.

You're right - Obama's not perfect, but he'll listen, and he'll at least try to understand. The Princess and the POW already have your mind made up for you. Not the kind of people I'd want running things - we've tried that shoe on the past 8 years.

Still doesn't fit ...

PS anyone still have a rotary phone? That actually works? And do you know if it could work on digital phone service?

I want one.

I do! I have a real Western Electric yellow Princess phone! I love it. And it works when the power goes out. And RINGS with a real bell! You can find them on ebay.
