That's right. We're talking politics! With one month to go until the United States presidential election, we can't continue to yammer on about Girlfriend Getaway weekends, while everyone else is discussing The Issues, can we? Well, we probably could, but getting in on the action is much more fun, timely and relevant. And we are nothing if not fun, timely and relevant. We mentioned in today's Holiday Golightly blog post that we had been keeping politics at arm's length until recently. But now the Vice Presidential debate is here, and if you think it's not going to be high entertainment, the ABCFamily Channel is showing "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" in the same time slot.
Gwen Ifill will be moderating the actual debate, but we felt compelled to weigh in on the issues ourselves. We've selected topics we feel might be covered in the debate, and are prepped at our podiums, microphones turned on, and TV Hair in place. Let's discuss the issues!
We are the peace-loving candidate here, Gwen. Love not war! (Also Hugs Not Drugs!) In fact, we just spent a
weekend meeting with leaders, and spreading the love around at our high school reunion.
Well, yes, some of the "leaders" were former cheerleaders, but that is neither here nor there. When we
spent time sitting down with our long-lost classmates, and reconnecting with all those friends we had lost touch with, we realized how they
enrich our lives, and thought "we need to have reunions, more frequently!" Did you know that "Girlfriend Getaway" is just another way of saying "Reunion"? Holiday
Golightly can plan these for us, and you!
Our foreign policy is "GO SOMEWHERE FOREIGN!" Travel is tantamount to understanding other cultures and other peoples. If we never left our little corner of the world, the only way we could possibly learn about other places would be in print, or on television. Gwen, were you aware that the show "Baywatch" was syndicated in 148 countries?
Were you also aware that the characters on "Baywatch" were the only examples of Americans some of these countries had ever seen? You would not believe the confusion on the faces of some of these poor people when we visit their countries and tell them we're from America. They want to know where our tight, red bathing suits are!
Gwen, we all know these are trying times.
And we have done our darndest to find ways to ease the economic
strain: We featured a blog post on cashmere
Cashmere will keep us warm in the coming cooler months, so that we can turn down the thermostats in our homes and save money AND energy! We're tackling two very big issues there! We have also done our part to quell the Wall Street crisis by offering smart investment options, and sussing out special Girlfriend Getaway offers.
Our (Travel) Experience
Gwen, we have heard the complaints that we are not prepared and don't have enough experience to lead this country. But we're here to tell you we have had PLENTY of travel experience, and are very well-equipped to
handle this position, and lead the people. On vacations.
We have had our
passports for more than one year, and advocate using YOURS as often as
is possible. When you travel, we want to ensure you maximize your time. See our tips on how to get through the airport fast. Gwen, we are not only the most qualified candidate, we are also the most efficient! Thank you, and don't forget to vote November 4!
