I am being haunted by the RNC. Maybe they know my son went to protest in Minneapolis last summer. Maybe they know I have never voted Republican in my whole life and are desperate to convert me. Yes, I had about a half a minute thought about voting for Governor Schwarzenegger because I am a fan of the absurd and because I enjoyed the Terminator movies. But the fancy passed, and I have never spoken nor written about it until this very moment, outing myself for my half a minute failing.
But it's the only thing that can explain the emails from the RNC. Every time one comes in, I unsubscribe. I click the button and am told that it's all over between us, but I am more than welcome back. At any time. Just sign up!
For a few weeks, I'm free from emails, but last night, in came: Watch Governor Jindal's Response to President Obama's Speech to Congress.
The sad news is that I didn't watch President Obama's speech to Congress. I was busy feeling icky and my hot pad and I watched my tivo'd Oliver Twist and The L Word, which only has two episodes left!
I'm not feeling political or angry or worried any more about the world. It's all pretty damn depressing, so why not watch some Dickens? An amazing lesbian soap opera! Hug that heating pad and go into denial.
But the damn RNC won't let me. I have to click on the email, look at Governor Jindal's ebullient, triumphant face, and then unsubscribe. I have to think about youtubing President Obama's speech, just so I can feel citizen-like.
