It is no surprise that a gaggle of wordpress bloggers are out in force talking up the racism and Barack diversions from Palin. This VP pick is the worst in history, at least to me. She even makes Quayle look like he had half a brain. I am just wondering why they think that if a freaking hurricane hitting a not yet healed New Orleans, couldn’t divert everyone’s attention that somehow the same old racism and Barack will do the trick. It is just ridiculous to think that anything short of a new terrorist attack could stop the Palin express derailment from being the big news of the day.
Is this lady serious? She champions the fact that we shouldn’t allow sex education in school and that they should just tell the kids to say no to sex via abstinence training. Then her seventeen year old underage daughter pops up pregnant, and five months to boot. Where is everyone to talk about how irresponsible her daughter is? Where the hell is the baby daddy in this situation? Maybe he will marry her, then again maybe he won’t. I mean he didn’t marry her before he knocked her up. Maybe if they both had some sort of sex education they would have understood what they were doing could possibly make a baby. Yet, we are supposed to believe that this is what family values are about.
Not only does she have a fiasco brewing from her “trooper gate”, “unwed teenage daughter pregnant gate”, but now we find out that she belonged to a group of folks who feel that Alaska should secede the USA. Now that just takes the cake. She actually spoke to this group saying that Alaska could be a great independent state. And I am supposed to believe that this woman loves America and has its best interest at heart.
I mean SHE is the one talking about separating from the USA and people are crying about Obama’s preacher talking trash about the USA. Where is this outcry of how she isn’t a patriot? I mean isn’t this beyond Michelle Obama saying that she was only just now proud of her nation after her husbands getting the nomination? But of course people will somehow try and justify this by saying that this shows her maverick style. “Trooper gate” shows that she knows how to wield her sword of power; “pregnant unwed underage teenage daughter gate” shows that she knows how to deal with teenage pregnancy or unwed mothers and now “Alaska should succeed the USA gate” shows that she knows how to be an independent thinker.
This all just shows how hypocritical and extremely pandering the Republican Party is. Not only that, this goes to show exactly what kind of president we could expect out of John McCain. One that does very little to use actual thought and care as to the decisions he makes. He will obviously jump the gun and use poor judgment when making decisions just like he has done in his VP choice. McCain has people up in Alaska investigating her right now. Shouldn’t he have done this BEFORE he picked her?
It is clear he never vetted this lady at all. I guess he thought “whatever will win votes” and now he is in a pickle. He is obviously more concerned with doing whatever it takes to try and win this election that he would potentially put this country in the hands of a lady who not only abuses her position of power, has a bit of trouble even controlling her child, but also would rather live in a state that ISN’T part of the United States of America. That doesn’t do much to make me believe in his judgement, her readiness or the responsibility of the Republican Party.
