My mom is awesome

Mom came over last Sunday in honor of Mothers' Day. My brother was there as well, and of course the discussion eventually came to politics. My brother is pretty staunchly Republican, so it wasn't a surprise to find out that he favors Mitt Romney.

But mom, although officially registered as a Republican, showed her true political colors when she vehemently described how much she hates Dick Cheney and Don Rumsfeld. She thinks Bush was totally misguided and unduly influenced by these two nefarious characters. And mom doesn't think much of Condoleeza Rice for being a stooge of Bush. ("stooge" was her word).

When asked whether she liked Mitt Romney, her comments were 1) he's a good looking son of a gun and 2) he's slick as a whistle (or something to that effect).

She's not telling us who she's going to vote for (no doubt wanting to avoid pissing either my brother or me off) but she did say that she favors Obama out of the Democratic contenders.

(I think she's going to vote democratic in '08. ) Oh yeah!
