It’s the announcement the whole world has been waiting to hear: The most important news ever… EVER. Soon to be President Barack Obama’s choice for Vice President. Preliminary rumors suggested the announcement might come as early as Wednesday morning. But, this very evening, Obama has named his running mate, and he shared the news exclusively with IdiomLife.com. Suck on that New York Times.
Public opinion polls revealed a tight race between Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. Joe Biden, Sen. Evan Bayh, and underdog favorite Gov. Tim Kaine as possible running mates. Yet tonight, despite the pundits’ predictions, Obama has thrown a trademark curveball to the entire political arena. His Vice President will be… Michael Phelps!
Now, I can already hear the complaints. “Phelps isn’t a politician.” Good. “He lacks experience.” Hardly. “He’s not even old enough to run.” Not interested. We here at Idiomlife don’t think Obama could have made a better move, and here’s why.
I was seventeen years old attending a private Catholic school. I wasn’t Catholic.

I was confronted with myself. I was divided, and yet it was not the division that frightened me. The thing I feared most was that I didn’t care. I was completely apathetic, indifferent, and uninterested. I thought. I thought myself indifferent until my self-conceit stood exposed concerning the hardness of my heart and for a brief moment I had recognized my true condition.
I absolutely love cars. I love driving them. Reading about them. Looking at them. Making love in them… uhh… nevermind that last one… But seriously, I absolutely love cars. And unless you’re my girlfriend, Kate, you probably wouldn’t know this because I never talk about them here. I’ve never had a reason to do a post about cars, they just really aren’t the focus of this site. That is until now. I came across this amazing piece of grafitti, I mean machinery, and I couldn’t help but share it with you all.
Prestige Imports, in Miami, spent about 2 weeks laying down the ink on this Lamborghini Gallardo and then had it clear coated to keep it nice and pretty.
