Ok, so what is the goddamn deal with bouncy houses taking over the universe?
Seriously? I get that they're fun. But they're not always necessary are they? It seems like every roadside attraction now has to have one. Our local farmer's market has one, and what's worse...every pumpkin patch in our area has TWO! I can only imagine the poor parents trying to get their kids out of the bouncy house, "Come on Johnny, you can't go in the other one until you pick out your pumpkin." I mean, hello - isn't the fun of going to the pumpkin patch PICKING OUT YOUR PUMPKIN? It's just insane to me. I guess they'll be at the Christmas Tree joints, too. I find it so odd.
I don't mean to be all old-fashioned, but I just wonder if my kids are going to grow up thinking that bouncy houses are everywhere. It seems like a sign of the times, and not a good one.
You know what else is odd? The idea that Sarah freaking Palin might be elected into the Vice Presidency. It's more than odd, really. It's fucking terrifying. Not to mention her war mongering pal. What is wrong with this country? How has she made it this far? Who thought that she'd appeal to to Americans? Why are they a little bit right? All that babbling last night probably appealed to a lot of people and that's just scary. I can't even write much more about it, or I'll go nutty. But I will say that there ought to be an Amendment stating that VP candidates should be able to name at least one major newspaper.
