I was sad to see Donald Rumsfeld go yesterday. Yes he was and still is stubborn. And if the elections had turned out differently on Tuesday, you would have heard nothing about these alleged "fresh eyes" that are needed to navigate the war in Iraq. You would have heard how much stronger Rumsfeld's resolve was, and how he was prepared to "stay the course" in an effort to bring freedom and democracy to Iraq. But none of that happened. So why am I sad to see him go? No member of Bush's cabinet possessed such a command over the media the way Rumsfeld did. He wouldn't half-answer questions, and then dare a member of the press to ask him again. Unlike other members of the party, who were worried about how they were perceived, Rumsfeld could care less, and although that same arrogance and stubbornness led to his resignation, I appreciated the honesty and candor. So many public figures whether they be in entertainers, athletes or politicians, sit in your face and tell you what you want to hear, in a way you want to hear it. Rumsfeld threw aside that conventional logic, and for that reason(and that reason only), I will miss him. In about 2 years, Rumsfeld will magically come down with a case of Alzheimer's, and forget all of the lies he told to the American public, allowing him to be let off the hook. sorry to be so cynical.

I told myself I wouldn't keep speaking on politics, but given this current climate how can you not? This is a very interesting time politically speaking, and what goes on now, will affect not only the presidential election in '08, but it'll affect the direction of this country over the next 4-6 years. I find myself watching CNBC, Fox News, and CNN a lot more than usual, as well as reading any internet publication I can get my hands on. Of course this will never supplant sports as my viewing of choice, but I'd be a fool not keep myself educated. This reminds me, back in the summer of '05, I dated this dumb ass girl who not only had never voted, but she told me she didn't get into all of the "political stuff". And THEN, to further confirm her stupidity, she told me she had no clue who Bob Dole was, after I cracked a joke about him. I said you don't know who Bob Dole is, and she said, well should I? I told her that the man ran for president a couple of times, he does Viagra commercials, and he is the most popular one-armed man alive, and none of this rang a bell for her. That kind of thing blows my mind. Of course, I'm the dumbass because I continued to date her after this revelation, but who am I to let a substantial amount of stupidity get in the way of some easy sex from a woman with big breasts. Of course, this was the '05 version of Rashad..i'm all growns up now.

Speaking of being growns up, yesterday while I was riding the train, I saw one of the best asses I've ever seen in my life. I swear I just wanted to palm and squeeze it 5 consecutive times, and then I would have let her go on about her day. She looked to be about 25 or 26, with her hair in a ponytail, and she had on a business power suit. But her suit jacket was NOT doing a good job in masking what was an incredible ass. I was reading my favorite internet author at the time, and I just happened to look up and see her, and I just smiled and kept reading. As I got off the train she caught my eye, and in the most proper voice I possess I said to her, "Have a good evening", and she smiled and said "You too". She had no idea of the filthy, nasty thoughts that were swimming in my dirty little sex-deprived mind..then again maybe she did, thus the smile. As I am writing this, I am reminded that a friend of mine who reads this blog, told me that when I talk about sex and sex related comments, it turns her off, because she feels like those things are private. So that whole paragraph was unintentionally dedicated to you my friend..hahaha. I am a conflicted, contradictory man. One minute I will break down crying about my son, and the next I will have twisted fantasies of licking sweet caramel off of a woman's body parts. That's just who I am.

And now, one of my favorite Zhane songs: http://download.yousendit.com/CDB83D35272670C4
