Eight years ago, I jokingly remarked to my then college roommates that “you know it must be bad, when I'd rather have John McCain in office than George Bush."
It was sobering for me at the time to realize that George W. Bush was such a pitiful, ignorant, arrogant and completely unqualified candidate that I would prefer another Republican over him. From what I now understand about John McCain, it's almost implausible that those words would ever come out of this “democraddicts" mouth.
I'm sad, oh so very, very sad, to have to admit that I'm having déjà vu all over again.
For those loyal, dear readers, my critical perspective of Sarah Palin has been expressed on at least a weekly basis. I can't stand her. I refuse to mince words anymore, she's an idiot.
Yes, an idiot, a huge idiot. Now, thanks to Katie Couric's interview last week, the whole nation knows what a moron she is.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler's depiction of that interview ( see Katie Couric's Sarah Palin interview,http://www.cbs.com, while you're at it check out the SNL parody on http://www.nbc.com) was not as far-fetched and exaggerated as the interview itself. As I watched the skit last Saturday, I had to turn to some of my friends and tell them “this is what she actually said".
She is a joke, yet I am NOT laughing, I'm ripping my hair out!
Palin's ignorance hints at that of another whopper of a numb nut, fellow Republican and Vice President to George H.W. Bush, Dan Quayle.
We can all remember the “‘potatoes" incident right? If you're interested in brushing up on his ridiculousness, check out this site: http://www.quotationspage.com/quotes/Dan_Quayle/. It's filled with his ludicrous quotes.
I'd be interested to see how Republicans view Quayle now. I'm sure it will be the same as how they will view Palin in the future, a worthless, unqualified dummy who should have no place in politics.
I was originally excited about the thought of Palin being embarrassed on a national stage this coming Thursday in her scheduled debate with Democratic vice Presidential nominee, Joe Biden. However, McCain's team isn't as stupid as their VP candidate; they have Palin in “debate boot camp" in Arizona even as we speak.
That being said, please be cognoscente of the canned-answers, blanketed, sentimental statements, irrelevant and distracting comments and baseless accusations that Palin will make. I'm sure by Wednesday night; Palin will be reciting them in her sleep.
Please, don't let McCain's hard work on Palin this week pay off. Read between the lines, even though she lacks the ability to, she should have no place on a national stage. She should have no place in the executive office.
Neither should McCain.
