My father is the last person you'd expect to read People magazine. He has a subscription. Ashley flipped through his most recent issue when we were at the old homestead yesterday, and found a Q&A with Barack Obama. It was one of those superficial questionaires, the kind with which silly, useless magazines like People are filled. You wouldn't expect any more insight from them than from a MySpace profile. But Barack's did have something that caught my interest, when Ashley read it.
What person would Barack Obama, presidential candidate, most like to meet? Guess. Go on and guess. No fair if you've already read it.
Bruce Springsteen. The dude actually said he'd most like to meet Bruce Springsteen. Because he always thought Springsteen seemed like a nice, cool guy.
Now come on, man. Democrats of Texas and Ohio, get your heads out of your asses. Obama is young, he's fresh, he's inspiring, and he's a Springsteen fan, for Christ's sake! You're really going to vote to nominate Hillary Clinton? Hillary Clinton.
You know who Hillary Clinton said she wanted to meet most of all? Elizabeth Bathory, the 16th century Hungarian noblewoman who murdered perhaps hundreds of young women and bathed in their blood. "I'd live to meet her in person, to see if it really worked," Hillary explained.
