Nailin’ Palin

By Adele

Charlie Gibson’s interview with Sarah Palin gave us a good glimpse into her relatively empty – but unblinkingly righteous and ambitious – mind.

It’s evident that, in her three-step climb to the summit of Alaskan politics (which precluded amassing the “big fat résumé” she now sneeringly rejects as the measure of a candidate’s viability), Washington has been nothing but her big piggy bank – the fount from which all her cherished earmarks flowed.

She was clueless when Gibson brought up the “Bush Doctrine.” To Gibson’s credit, her bluffing and transparent attempt to get him to tell her what it is fell flat.

And Vladmir Putin must be snorting vodka out his nose at Palin’s naïve belief that Alaska’s proximity to Russia gives her an advantage in handling foreign affairs. I can just hear him telling Medvedev, “The only way that silly woman will ever see Russians in Alaska is if we declare war on Canada.”

Displaying yet another breathtaking disconnect in logic, she claimed Russia had no right to invade Georgia unprovoked. She’s obviously unaware that’s precisely what the U.S. did to Iraq – and proud that her son Track just left to continue our occupation there.

McCain’s people would be wise to at least help her sound proper when she’s spouting off on things she knows nothing about. Or maybe it’s her way of showing solidarity with Bush to say nuclear as if it’s spelled nucular.

If she ever paid attention to what happens beyond Alaska’s borders, she’d realize the president of Iran is not Akmadinejhad because it’s spelled Amadinejhad.

Republicans are probably crowing over Palin’s brilliance in sparring with Gibson, but she showed the rest of us that electing her would be like putting Bush in a skirt.

    Brilliant! er…you, not her…

    This woman seriously frightens me and makes my brain itch all at the same time. Keep writing, I’m loving it.

    Thank you, Marinel.

    From now until Election Day, Cats Working intends to lambast the Republicans’ absurd, desperate strategy of brainwashing people into thinking the definition of “Change” is “more of the same” every chance we get.

    They may be able to wrap it in cheese and fool all the dumb dogs out there, but we cats aren’t swallowing it.

    Here is something I received …says it all.
    Please send this to your friends, family and co-workers in Middle America so they won’t be ‘confused’ either…

    I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

    * If you grow up in Hawaii and are raised by your grandparents, you’re
    ‘exotic, different.’

    * Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American
    story.

    * If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

    * Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.

    * Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.

    * Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well
    grounded.

    * If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the
    first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter
    registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years
    as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator
    representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of
    the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years
    in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people
    while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs,
    Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you
    don’t have any real leadership experience.

    * If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city
    council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000
    people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people,
    then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking
    executive.

    * If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while
    raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re
    not a real Christian.

    * If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your
    disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a
    Christian.

    * If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including
    the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

    * If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no
    other option, in sex education in your state’s school system while your
    unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.

    * If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in
    a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city
    community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values
    don’t represent America ‘s.

    * If you’re husband is nicknamed ‘First Dude’, with at least one DUI
    conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until
    age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession
    of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable and you are know as putting country first.

    OK, much clearer now.

    Morgan, I saw a variation of this myself today. It really does lay out the differences in the candidates and makes the Republicans’ hypocrisy in attacking Obama crystal-clear, unless facts don’t matter because you’re brain-dead.
