Hello Sarah Palin!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Congratulations on your pick to be John McCain’s vice-president!  It’s quite impressive that now we will have either the first black president or the first woman vice-president.  Your selection, however, shows just how desperate the McCain campaign is.  You have only delivered to McCain what he already had; the Republican base and the state of Alaska with its three electoral votes.

Somehow I think that you are being used as a tool to try and win over the disgruntled Hilary voters.  Sorry, it isn’t going to work.  The Hilary voters do not care that you hunt and fish.  They don’t care that you like moose burgers.  And they don’t care that you are a lifelong card carrying member of the NRA.  What they do care about is that like your running mate despite you being a woman, you are against the issues that are important to the Hilary crowd.

Let’s take Roe vs. Wade for example.  You’re on the record that you don’t believe in abortion under any circumstances.  That’s to the right of your would be boss.  I guess the life of a fetus is more important than the health of the mother.  Should she have to carry to term because she was raped?  But that’s all I know about you except that you are under investigation for trying to get your brother-in-law fired.  I checked out this site to see your positions on the important issues. Seems like you don’t have any. 

Where Sarah Palin stands on the big issues

For a good, quick, dispassionate insight into Sarah Palin’s position on the major issues facing our nation, go to.  OnTheIssues.org, which records politicians’ votes and statements to assess their positions on important topics.

What’s her position on foreign policy? Oops, I’m afraid there’s no entry there.
What’s her position on free trade? Opps, I’m afraid there’s no entry there either.
What’s her position on government reform? Hmmm. Nothing there.
How about immigration? Nope. Nothing. Nada.
Wait, certainly she’s got a position on jobs. Sorry. Nothing there.
Technology? Sorry. That does not compute.
Principals and values? I don’t see anything there.
What to do in Iraq? Well, I guess she’ll have to think about it.

Darn. It’s really hard to get any kind of a reading on this substantive vice presidential pick. I guess she’ll have to shoot from the hip on most of these issues. Good luck, America. She’ll be only a 72-year-old heartbeat away from the presidency.

John McCain may be a maverick but he is also an idiot.  One piece of advice Madame Governor, don’t quit your day job!

    Hold it, an important announcement coming. I take back that Palin won’t get any of Hillary’s vote, she’ll get the PUMA’s. This group of women, maybe some men, are scarier than the 60’s Weathermen group who Bill Ayers was part of. So, if McCain wants their support, he can have them.

    They’ll vote for a woman no matter her issues, her party, her politics. If that isn’t frightening, I don’t know what is.

    The Obama supporters can now list this group as McCain supporters and wait until his base support starts hearing about them 🙂 🙂
