KTAR Talk the Vote - LIVE with Glenn Beck


On Friday, Lorin and I were able to go to the Orpheum Theater in Phoenix with some friends to see KTAR's Talk the Vote Live. This consisted of an hour of the "War Room" with Pat McMahn, Darrell Ankarlo, Mac Watson and Glenn Beck discussing the presidential race and the war. This might sound really boring, but it was actually VERY entertaining. After the war room, Glenn Beck spoke for about an hour doing some bits from his show that he has been touring for. He was awesome! If any of you know him, you know that he's a little extreme, but I REALLY like him. He's a convert to the church and is a little rough around the edges but he was so much fun to watch. I haven't always enjoyed politics (and sometimes I still don't) but they made some great points tonight that helped me realize who I needed to vote for. I haven't really been a fan of either politician (when it comes to character really), but at this point I've realized I need to vote for "the lesser of two evils" as Lorin tells me. It's not that John McCain or Barak Obama are evil, I just don't agree with any of them whole-heartily. Any who... as you can see from the pics, you know who will be getting my vote. :D

This is a snippet of his show. It was hilarious!!!

Hey Kristyn, This isn't about McCain--I just wanted to say how darling your little girl is. Where did your baby go? She reminds me of my daughter...similar round-ness :). Enjoy those little rolls, though, they don't last long enough!

It's interesting that you say "the lesser of the two evils" because Steven was talking about how he didn't really like McCain much better than Obama but I told him we have to vote for who is "better" of the two. Too bad we missed that! Steven LOVES KTAR!

Kristyn, I listened to that on the radio, that's cool you got to go. And yes, we were at Rumbis last weekend, you should've said hi. It was good to hear from you. Hope all is well for you and your family, you have a beautiful little girl. Take care.

Man, I'm so jealous of the both of you, getting to go and see Glenn live. FYI Deseret Book is selling a DVD and CD where Glenn tells his conversion story. Also as far as voting for the lesser of two evils, I don't think that I can vote for either person, at some point we have to stand up and say enough is enough and if a third party gets 5% of the vote they will get federal help the next go around. Anyways those are my thoughts.
