Who’s excited for the Presidential debates? All of you, I hope. I know there are some people out there who don’t watch the debates/don’t care about them…but I don’t understand these people and I doubt I’d get along with them very well.
Here’s my take on the 2008 election. (I’ll do my best to keep this non-partisan…I’m a political Independent by the way…voted Republican and Democrat in the past…Green and Libertarian too…depends on the candidates and the issues they’re most likely to face once elected…i.e., I don’t care where my city councilmen stand on abortion, only zoning regulations…) Ah, yes, so my take. Here goes: The next President is going to be awesome. Obama and McCain are both incredible people. The American Dream and the Bona Fide Hero. They’re especially impressive when you compare them to some other recent presidents.
No matter what happens, things are looking up.
I feel like most of you reading this blog are liberal, which is cool. And some of you are probably freaking out about McCain, especially now that he picked such a conservative running mate. Here’s my message to you: chill.
I’ll bet you $20 that if McCain is elected, you’ll see the Maverick McCain (i.e., the more liberal McCain) return post-inauguration. Remember, he couldn’t have gotten the nomination if he didn’t move to the right…found this out the hard way in 2000, back when he was fathering all those black babies…
And for those of you who are freaking out about Obama (which I kind of understand), my message to you is this: play fair. You had your chance (with Bush), and nothing much good happened, so why not give the other side a turn at the wheel?

I’m moving to Las Vegas now to write my second book, Fool’s Paradise. It’s about lies and deception—honest! I don’t know many people in the city and am always looking to meet new people to have fun adventures with…SO…if any of you reading this know some cool, open-minded Las Vegas residents, shoot me an email at LawyerBoyChicago@gmail. Especially if these people are involved in any traditionally Las Vegas professions (i.e., gaming/gambling, hotel management, bars & clubs, entertainment, pawn shops…that sort of thing).
