Sick of the Rhetoric

I have a love-hate relationship with politics.  It’s stuff like this that makes me hate politics:

SUGAR LAND, Tex., Oct. 30 — President Bush said terrorists will win if Democrats win and impose their policies on Iraq, as he and Vice President Cheney escalated their rhetoric Monday in an effort to turn out Republican voters in next week’s midterm elections. (via Washington Post)

Regardless of where you stand on the political spectrum, that’s an outrageous statement to make.  In essence, Bush is accusing the democrats of being in alliance with terrorists.  I don’t care how different their plans are from his, but I’m confident that the democrats are not in alliance with terrorists. I’m not going to declare that the democrats are saints, but I’m not surprised that democrats are on the verge of taking over congress.
I’d like to think that most people can see through shoddy political rhetoric.  My brain hurts.

It’s starting to feel like fall in Blacksburg

Hokie VictoryAnd we had our first night game tonight. It’s very chilly now (39 degrees), but it was worth the cold to play at night. Plus, the trees are turning colors.

I’m also going to withdraw from Operating Systems. Praying that we can get Embedded System Design to count as an equivalent course so we never have to take OS again.

Pictures from my Sabbath over the long weekend

In the next week, I have three projects due, a test, a testing plan (think paper), and a quiz on top of my regular homework.  I won’t be updating this week, so I figured I’d make a quick post and share some pictures from this past weekend and my Sabbath.

Update to podcasts index

A little while ago when I made a list of podcasts I listen to, I had two podcasts on my wish list.  Well, it seems that John McGowan has pulled together a podcast of his Gathering messages.  The first one is up now, but I haven’t had the opportunity to check it out yet.  This podcast is bound to become one of my must listens, so I feel safe recommending it before trying it out.
