One thing that I have discovered about Madame 45 is that she likes to run, and I don't just mean in the athletic sense. She likes to run an offense, a town, oil and gas commission meetings, a state. She also enjoys co-running a family. We'll have to see if she has her sights set on running a country. Time will tell. She always seems to be acutely aware of "open doors" or "doors that are cracked" opened.
Today was a little less busy today on the LOTUS front; you see the big post was only at about 8:30 PM yesterday here in Alaska. I was proud of Madame for putting the Softy Southpaws (that's what Madame calls liberals) in their place. Madame has gotten used to being taken out-of-context and smeared, so she fights back. She is a fighter. She talked about her proclamation of Healthcare Decisions Day as governor and put it into context. You see, it's not very often that her words are put into context, so she decided to do it herself. She compared what was in the House bill with her proclamation of Healthcare Decisions Day and said they were as different as apples and oranges. The two policies are really that different! She wasn't just using that example in order to get votes from Washington state and Florida if she decides to run in 2012. Oh, and I must say, she was pretty excited about the provision being taken out the Senate bill, but she's not done yet!
We only really had one post today-- a statement from the American College of Surgeons. Apparently, the President made some comment about how much surgeries cost, and he was way off. You see, Madame is so good with budgeting and being fiscally responsible both in government and at home. You should see the budgeting excel spreadsheets I have saved on my hard drive! She just can't understand how the President could overestimate the cost of a foot amputation but completely underestimate the cost of the his health care plan. It's so simple to her!
But, I should get back to the running. Since it was a slower day for us, Madame went for a long run. She used me to charge her ipod. She has quite the eclectic collection of music on itunes: AC/DC, some country, some Amy Grant. I've always wanted to go on a run with her. I don't get what's the big deal. I AM portable!? Oh well, Madame's pretty speedy, so my processor probably couldn't keep up anyway. She's a tough one; she says her ankle hurts her sometimes when she runs; it's from an old high school basketball injury. Yet, she still runs. If I had a sore backspace key, I don't know if I could do it. I guess it's because running gives her sanity in this crazy world.
