Well, thanks to fellow blogger-guy Mudflats, I’ve found something that can help us all become better acquainted with Sarah Palin.
This is an important discovery since the GOP is obviously convinced that Mrs. Palin is nothing other than a robot… unwilling to allow the woman to speak (let alone think) on her own… I figured we could all benefit from a resource that will tell us what she’s really all about…
Since she is clearly incapable of telling us herself.
The only time her new-found watchdogs (I didn’t say pit bulls because McCain and friends do not wear lipstick) allow her to so much as open her mouth in public is when it’s in the form of a scripted speech.
She takes no questions from the media, gives no interviews… and as yet, won’t even appear on any talk shows.
Meanwhile the GOP is feverishly giving the Governor a crash course on being a veep pick…
They’ll keep her under wraps until she aces the Republican-taught, “How to be a Slimy Politician 101″…
Unfortunately, this leaves the rest of us having to dig pretty deep if we want any actual info about Palin-the-Pit.
So, what is this thing, you ask?
It is the 60-some-odd page result of her vetting … a process the Alaskan Democrats put her through in 2006 when she was running for Governor…
A process the Republican Party didn’t feel was necessary this year, prior to selecting her for their veep candidate.
I’d heard rumblings about the existence of this document from the day Sarah Palin was announced as John McCain’s running mate… I just couldn’t find it.
I believe the GOP Nazis tried to have it destroyed.
(Cue Evil Spy Movie music)
Anyway, stepping away from the conspiracy theories, and back to reality, these papers have a lot of information in them, and can be a bit overwhelming if you try to read it page-by-page.
So to borrow some good advice from Mudflats himself- wait- herself-
Uh… Crap, I don’t know if Mudflats is a man or a woman-
Go to page 2 of the document…
That’s where the table of contents is located, and from there you can kind of puruse at your leisure, touching on whatever sparks your interest at the moment.
