When John McCain announced his choice for VP I immediately began to hyperventilate… I cannot wait to see how this plays out in both the media and in households across the nation.
Sarah Palin for VP…
This is the woman McCain is hoping will steal all those Clinton supporters?
A pro-life ex-beauty queen whose only political know-how comes from being the esteemed leader of the great state of Alaska?
I think we’re being Punk’d. Honestly, I do.
I’m sure Palin’s amassed a great following… most likely all 17 residents of Alaska think she’s done a bang-up job… and I’m just as certain she can shoot skeet and ice fish with the best of ’em… but let’s get real here.
McCain goes on and on and on about how Obama doesn’t have the experience necessary to run the country… and then… turns around and picks Palin as his running mate?
This decision will pretty much force McCain to give up what was perhaps his most appealing argument against Obama… or at least it should… I mean what kind of idiot is he going to look like if he keeps pushing that particular point… while simultaneously embracing… uh… what’s her name again?
Oh yea. Palin. I almost forgot for a second there… probably because no one even knows who the heck this lady is…
The woman has been the governor of Alaska for 2 years.
No, not 2 terms. 2 years.
Prior to that her experience consists of… well…
Not a whole lot.
Yep, that about covers it.
She’s got the same amount of foreign policy experience as I do… which equals… uh… none.
Next to this lady, Obama looks like a Washington old-timer.
While Obama was gaining all that political experience McCain swears he doesn’t actually have, Governor Palin has been a very busy woman.
She has five kids… one of which is a very young baby, born in April with Down Syndrome.
Does she have time to help run the nation? I have 2 kids, neither of which have special needs, and I’m lucky I have the time to show up to work every day…
… and usually I’m late.
In addition to her busy home life and gubernatorial responsibilities, she is currently the subject of a legislative investigation for her alleged role in attempting to have a state trooper fired… a man who just happened to be going through a messy divorce with…
What? A politician embroiled in scandal?
She should fit right in.
Personally, I think McCain picked her cuz she’s hot… I mean, yea, she’s got no experience, but she’s a babe… so she can’t be all bad, right? We all know about McCain’s penchant for the pretty young thangs… and let’s face it…
Cindy’s no spring chicken anymore.
Plus, all that plastic surgery is starting to make her look suspiciously like an alien. Not the illegal kind… but…
… from outer space.
Only in politics can any of this possibly be taken seriously.
