Creepy with a capital C

Santorum is creepy with a capital C. On his website, he's shown standing with John McCain, who apparently is supporting his campaign. McCain is one of the few Republicans I can stand. Pretty much him and Specter. Why does McCain sell out all the time. Why no strong words on Cheney trying to make it okay to torture at Gitmo or Abu Garib or wherever our shadow prisoners are being held. McCain was a POW for christ's sake and he refers to Cheyney's view as 'a difference of opinion'. What happens to people that they can compromise their values like that. Anyway, back to creepy Santorum. Already we have Santorum ads running in PA. The election is next November and already he's saturating the airwaves. The ads appear to be illegal though and Casey has filed a complaint because nobody knows who is donating the money to the group 'responsible' for the ads. This is gonna be a rough year if this crap is starting up already.

In other news, I went to the worlds worst Chinese buffet for lunch today with my co-workers. I don't usually go out to lunch, prefering to save money and eat leftovers from home. But since others were going, and it's new and nobody had been before I tagged along. Why do people enjoy enormous quantities of bad food? I would say 3/4 of the stuff there was just fast food....chicken nuggets, french fries, pizza, pasta, tons of deserts like jello and ice cream. The few ethnic dishes I had were bad. How can you screw up things like chicken in garlic sauce or black pepper chicken? Anyway, everyone agreed that it sucked and we'd never go there again. Yet we watched table after table of people go back for seconds, thirds, and sometimes fourths, loading up their plates with crap that wasn't even Chinese food. The guy at the table next to us, who was very large, ate three heaping plates of MASHED POTATOES with some greasy looking gravy. Why? I have never understood the attraction to places that obviously favor quantity over quality. It doesn't matter if it's cheap if it tastes horrible. And the funny thing is, we went there based on the recommendation of like 10 other people in another department that raved about it. Maybe we went to the wrong place.

You did say "Chinese buffet", right?
Mashed potatoes? Pizza? I can't even begin to understand that.

Yeah, it was pretty weird. Not much was chinese. They had sushi, but I dont think I'd trust sushi as a place that also serves McCain smiley face fries. can't master it all.
