Oh, What a Night!

Many of you already know that I was pulled by my devotion and love of the San Francisco Giants, Game 7, and my political interest in the third and final debate between Obama and Romney.  In a wonderful technological evening, I was able to have my cake and eat it too.  Watching the debate on television and game 7 on my computer, while receiving tweets from CNN, Bill Maher, Kathy Griffin, and Andy Borowitz.  It was perfect.  Well, maybe not perfect because the irritation that I received from parts of the debate made it nauseating, but the tweets broke up the nausea.  

So, who won the debate?  Well, I would say Bob Schieffer.  He was the best moderator of all.  Firm and polite.  He is one of the last true journalists of the old guard.  As far as the candidates, I would have to give it to President Obama.  He has been consistent on every issue.  Romney can't be trusted because he has sat on all sides of every issue.  Not because he has evolved. He sways whichever way he has needed to to appease supporters.  Romney wants to be President more than anything.  I just am not sure he wants to be President for altruistic reasons, maybe it's just to have another significant win under his belt.  The President has been easy to trust in his vision of a better America because he has shifted as the wind blows.  His background has been all civil servant all the time. Romney whether you are for him or against him, can't be trusted.  I have no idea what he would really, truly do if he were President of the United States, which is more than enough reason not to give him a chance.  

Barack Obama got in some very pointed zingers last night.  Mitt Romney seemed like he was faking his knowledge of foreign affairs.  He has mastered the art of not answering the question asked.  During this debate, Romney seemed as if he really wanted to get in certain talking points.  I am not saying that Obama didn't want to get his points in too, but it was more seamlessly done. Romney clearly moved to the center during the debate.  Trying desperately to get the "undecided" voters to vote for him.  There was so much agreement of the President's policies, that there was very little difference between them last night.  So, who is the real Mitt Romney?  I have no earthly idea.  He's just not Barack Obama and for many people, that's enough.  

The most important event of the night...the San Francisco Giants won game 7 at AT&T Park and going to the World Series.  They came from a 3-1 deficit and clobbered the Cardinals.  Anyone who thinks that the Detroit Tigers have the upper hand in the World Series beginning tomorrow night, doesn't believe in the massive heart and soul of the Giants. They host the Tigers for the first two games.  So, come on, root them on.  I love this team.  

Sidebars:  Homeland is still thriving and fascinating.  If you aren't on board, jump on. It's worth the ride. The Good Wife was a great episode and no storyline with Kalinda's ex-husband helped that. The Voice still the best singing competition show and doesn't disappoint. What was Brad Pitt thinking doing those Channel no. 5 commercials?  Is 7 million dollars still enough?  He has been mocked over and over again, first on SNL, and then all over the internet. Everyone wants to know what George Clooney is saying to his BFF. Lindsey Lohan is still a disaster.  She wants a restraining order against her father, Michael, who tried to hold an intervention, until the police came and tossed him out.  That family is a mess.  Makes Honey Boo Boo's family look more healthy and normal.  Don**d Tr**p has his game changing announcement tomorrow about Obama.  Freud would've had a field day with his narcissism. Wonder if I'll be able to sleep tonight. Tonight, going to see Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons.  Can't wait. He got great reviews. Enjoy Tuesday.
