Sarah Palin, Inconsistencies and Sweet Irony

Well, Wednesday night at the RNC certainly was interesting…

Mike Huckabee lost me pretty early on… though I did enjoy some of the anecdotes he shared about his upbringing. That part was kinda cool.

Personally, I think Rudy Giuliani was the star of the show… even though he was talkin’ trash about my boy Obama… I still think he was a hoot.

The much-anticipated Sarah Palin, however, is a different story.

She wants us to believe she represents change…

Seems a good start would have been to use someone other than George Bush’s speech writer.

I love all the ironies and flat-out inconsistencies that are Sarah Palin.

For example, it’s so ironic that she is waaaaay far on the right on all issues involving women’s reproductive rights… believes in abstinence-only teaching… and has a pregnant 17 year old child.

It’s also ironic that the woman dogs Obama out for his “lack of experience” in national/international politics and meanwhile… she’s got… uh… well… basically none.

Zero.

Obama may not be the most experienced politician on the planet, but let’s not forget this one important thing- He was elected- by his own party, by his fellow Americans- to be the Presidential Nominee for the Democrats.

Li’l Ms. Alaskan Sun certainly was not elected as the nominee for… anything… at least not where this particular election is concerned.

Nor would she have been- even if the Republicans had been given the option to do so… Cuz… um… until about a week ago no one even knew who she was.

Anyway, back to what I was saying-

Irony. Inconsistencies.

Ironic that she doesn’t believe Community Organizers have any real responsibilities… which is what Obama was, two decades ago… it’s how he got his political start, if you will…

Personally, I think it beats the hell out of the whole I-got-my-start-in-politics-by-joining-the-PTA-just-like-everyone-else rhetoric, but…

Whatever. 

I also realize she thinks her part-time job as mayor for the Alaskan equivalent of Mayberry came with responsibilities galore…

… But…

For all the challenges her teeny political gig in Wasilla came with…

She couldn’t handle them.

Mayor Palin was the first person to hold that particular office… in the entire town’s history… who had to hire someone to help her handle all the demands that came with being the mayor of a cute little village in Alaska.

And still managed to almost get ousted.

Huh.

She’s got what it takes, alright.

Yup, yup

  1. It is interesting to see this all play out. My theory on what the Republicans are attempting to do with their VP pick is bring to the forefront the idea of inexperience. When Sarah was first chosen I think the initial reaction of most was, “huh?” from the experience side of the debate. It got everyone a little concerned on both sides. But now they are going to show why she is more experienced for the executive office and I think the idea is that then people will say, “Wow, well maybe they are right. If she has more Executive experience than Barack…then he must be REALLY inexperienced.”
    Just my theory on their play right now…

  2. And also one more point to add. The McCain camp has started the move from the campaign process to get voters to vote for McCain but rather to vote against Obama. Once you see the campaign in this new light they have switched to, it all makes sense as to what they are trying to do. This is why all the speeches last night were more oriented to discussing Obama and not really the issues of the nation. At least in my opinion…

  3. I kinda feel like the Republicans and NeoConJobs are trying to make sure the election never actually pivots around issues. If we were to talk about Iraq, Afghanistan, the Economy, the Energy Crisis, the Russian-Georgia conflict, the South Asian Manufacturing Sector, Global Warming, the Treatment of our Veterans or our stuartship over the planet… the the republicans would be fucked. They are on the wrong side of every issue this year.

  4. I just wish someone would really investigate her. I know for a fact that she has exaggerated her role of ousting political cronies. She just slid into her job as Governor after a Federal probe of corruption that has nothing to do with her. Read the Alaska Daily News.

    CNN is not doing a good job. Reporters are not good these days. They half investigate the truth.
