Leave Sarah Palin Alone!

Many people are suggesting that John McCain bailed on an interview with David Letterman so that he could do an interview with Katie Couric, and then maybe people would ignore an interview she did with Sarah Palin earlier that day. That's a lie! And many people are suggesting that Sarah Palin may be breaking new ground as the first mentally challenged individual to become the Vice President. Another lie! Look at this interview:

She knows the meaning of most of the words she's saying. She doesn't always put them in the right fungible place, but it's kind of like a tossed salad language of. You don't need to make sure one word next another is to. You just scramble it up and take a big bite. No, she's definitely not mentally retarded. I'd say Sarah Barracuda knows more about politics and things than most 10th graders in her home town.


  1. I kinda like McCain, not exactly sure why, but I do. But does anyone believe Palin was chosen for any reason other than she's a Republican woman politician? I think McCain's giving too much ear to his campaign advisors, but he still OKed her so I lost some interest in him.

    Seems about the same as the Democrats choosing Pelosi as Speaker, except a few more people would have to die for her to be President.

    I'm not against all women politicians. I think Feinstein is a pretty sharp and shrewd politician, and even Hillary has a good head on her shoulders (I just think her politics are too polarizing, but I can see why some people would like that). But Palin and Pelosi are dim bulbs.

  2. OK, I just watched the video again. Palin makes Pelosi look like the next Einstein. At least Pelosi can put words together into something resembling english, even if has no meaning (politi-speak).

    I love this "Unthinkable Futures" from Brian Eno:

    "Everybody becomes so completely cynical about the election process that voter turnout drops to 2 percent (families and relatives of prospective politicians) until finally the "democratic process" is abandoned in favour of a lottery system. Everything immediately improves."

    The whole election process is such a game show that maybe a random drawing for Next President would improve things. Would give guys like Nader a chance - wouldn't that be a kick? Maybe use the American Idol format to select the President?

    Yes, I'm a jaded, bitter middle-aged man. Are there enough disenchanted Americans that we could take over a small country and start over? Belize sounds nice.

  3. There once was a lady named Palin
    From a covey you might find Dan Quayle in.
    And you know what they say
    'Bout a heartbeat away:
    She could be the next chief we're hailin'.

  4. Had Tina Fey said those same exact words to Katie, you'd have thought the caricature had been taken too far.

  5. If she got a boob job, she'd have my vote for sure.


  6. I think we're totally f**ked.
