As the author of the (soon to be if not already) famous PALINdrome: “harass Sarah,” I take it upon myself to do just that.
But first let me apologize for giving more attention to the VP manqué. She should just go away and leave us alone. If there were a God in Heaven, she would do just that. But alas, thanks to the most hypocritical straight shooter in the history political chicanery, John “Off-the-Tracks” McCain, we may be stuck with Ms. Palin for a long time. Our goal should be to shorten that purgatorial interlude as much as possible.
There is no question that McCain’s selection of Palin was the most single act that doomed his candidacy. If there is to be blame, it lies with him, not her. She was just being her bewitching self.
Not one to give up easily, McCain has just made a statement to the effect that Gov. Palin will play a big role in the future of the country (again, God forbid, albeit perhaps not her God). He went on to describe her as a “great reformer.” Such a laudatory endorsement coming from the likes of McCain, who himself needs to be on the lookout for the vultures circling above, should be about as welcome as a phone call from the IRS.
Palin herself has blamed Bush for the Party’s big loss on November 4. But she gave old Dubya a good run for the money. A recent AOL poll had 36% saying it was her presence on the ticket that doomed McCain against 42% who gave the prize to Bush’s policies. Not bad for a beginner going up agaist a seasoned veteran loser.
Americans need to ask themselves some hard questions about Sarah Palin.
Do we want or need a future leader who:
· Is well to the Right of Genghis Khan
· Gets her kicks killing wildlife from the safety of a helicopter
· Defends to the death the right to life of a conglomeration of foetal cells while she nukes Iran
· Has a foreign policy that consists of a glance across the Bering Strait
· Welcomes a nuclear holocaust-like Armageddon so that she and the rest of the (self) righteous can go to be with Jesus and no longer have to share a planet with the likes of matrimonial minded Gays and Lesbians or religious apostates like Mahatma Ghandi
I could go on, but you long ago got the point.
And now that I give it some more thought, perhaps there is no need to “harass Sarah.” As I said earlier, just being herself is what sunk the good ship McCain. Maybe her just continuing to be herself is all we need for her to fall off the political radar screen.
For the sake of our children and grandchildren and the future of the planet, let’s hope so.
