This is my entry for LJ Idol, Topic 13: Current Events

There is officially no Tamiflu left in the Bluegrass area, and new supply will be at least eight weeks in coming. We now go live to interview Deb Hisle, lucky recipient of the last two doses sold in Lexington. "Hi. Oh, that's loud, isn't it? Sorry. yes, I bought two supplies of Tamiflu this afternoon. I thank my great friend Knight, who not only drove me to the doctor this morning -- he went to two different Krogers in order to get enough for me, and for my son." Back to you, Min.

You heard it first here, folks. We'll now talk to our station doctor about what you at home can do, to prevent infection with this highly contagious disease. "Wash your hands. I really don't know why you've got me on camera. It's not like I haven't said this before. Oh, we're still live? Wash your hands."

Good luck folks, it looks like we're in for a rough ride. The Courier Journal is reporting seventeen sick with the flu in Louisville, compared with one, this time last year.

And now, politcal commentary with our own Merlie.

Super Fat Tuesday!

What's so super about it? I live in Kentucky; enough said?

Better yet, in a year when it looks like there might be a horse race left by May, it's already too late for me to switch parties, so that I could vote for Obama. For the first time since we've moved here, I actually waffled about whether to change my party affiliation. Then I found out that the deadline was 31 December, so I'm stuck in the Republican party for One More Primary.

Which means that once again, I'm falling back on looking for my President Charming. A good individual. A strong leader. I mean after all, if you can respect an individual, you can trust them to uphold foundation beliefs when confronting any specific issues. Right?

McCain appears to be the most moderate of the Republican candidates, and he extended a pretty good lead last night. But he's an old white guy. And I've grown uncomfortable with the actions of Republicans leading our nation. I have to just cross my fingers and hope for Barack to run against him in the fall, instead of Hillary.

It looks like I won't have a choice this May. But then, do I want the choice?

That's all for tonight, folks. We leave you with the winner of our station's super bowl ad poll:

I switched parties so that I could vote for Edwards. But after he dropped out, I was still glad that I switched parties so that I could throw a vote to Obama in lieu of any of the Republican candidates.

I think Critter is going to register Democratic, in order to vote for Obama.

That commercial was #4 on my best list.

I liked the irony in his statement about "underestimating the creepiness."

What is more creepy than that baby?

Our favorite was the Macy's balloons and the coke bottle. And the more we watch it the better it gets.

The democratic race has been so much more interesting of the two parties. Did you hear that Mitt dropped out?

Did you notice little Lucy van Pelt in the park?

Yes, I just got email from CNN about Mitt. I wonder if this strengthens McCain or Huckabee?

That was my favorite too.

ETA: I take that back. My absolute favorite was indeed the political coke ad. As a DC resident and partial-political-junkie, I was laughing the whole way through.

Balloons absolutely a close second.
