This month’s songs of the month come at the end of the month because it has taken me that long to find some really great new music (or rather, new to me music). But, at last, here it is.
This month’s post is dedicated to one band. Cartel.
Now, I had heard of Cartel several years ago but I hadn’t ever really listened to their music. Luckily, that changed over spring break. One of my friends happened to have a Cartel cd and at some point durring the 30 hours of driving played it.
I love them. Their pop/punkyness comes with a bit of a hard edge at times but is comfortably balanced out by blindingly heart felt balads.
Give them a listen. You won’t regret a moment of it.
Every month I will bring my favorite music of the moment. I will put my picks in a post and in the widget in the right hand column cleverly labeled “Songs of the Month”. And, of course, you can and are encouraged to buy this awesome music directly from the Amazon widgets.
This month the picks are The Glass Passenger by Jack’s Mannequin and Foile à Deux by Fall Out Boy:
P.S. You might not have noticed but Amazon has a special exclusive Jack’s track titled “Doris Day”. Check it out… its awesome:
So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start…
What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience…
That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway?
Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor of Alaska for a year and a half. However, as Barack Obama pointed out himself once, Obama actually has less on the job experience that Palin since he basically started campaigning for president immediately after being elected to the Senate.
But beside that point, there is a whole nother aspect to this whole “experience” debate… an aspect that Palin wins hands down (even when compared to McCain).
And that is the experience of running a government. Palin is the only one who has any executive experience. She is the only one knows what its like to be the one and only person in charge of making the important decisions (from all accounts they’ve been good decisions) and accepting responsibility for their consequences. Being an executive is most certainly a whole different experience from being a legislator.
Palin’s executive experience adds a lot to McCain’s ticket… not to mention the many other advantages she brings.
