Great Hustler or Great Debacle????
Folks, I'm back. I can't take it anymore, there is just too much to say. Wall Street is crumbling, banks are failing, congress is scurrying around to pass a "bailout package", which will only be a temporary band-aide on the overall crisis, and, oh, something else is going on.....Sarah Palin is running for Vice President!!
I just cannot believe what my eyes have seen, and more importantly, what my ears have heard. I hope you have been following her interviews with Katie Couric. What is she talking about? Her answers are incomprehensible and seem to lack the knowledge needed by someone running for the 2nd highest office in the country!
Tonight is the vice-presidential debate. From the buzz on the streets, it is the most anticipated debate of all-time. Biden should be able to clean her clock, unless he commits his achilles heel of verbal diarrhea necessitating a "foot in mouth moment" (e.g., Obama is so clean and articulate").
In preparation for tonight, please, please, please watch these videos. Why? First, you will get to laugh a little. Second, you may a chance for a good cry (realizing that she has a chance to hold the VP office). Third, you will see the preamble, the set-up for tonight. It is either one big hoax, a giant "hustle" (in the memory of the late and great Paul Newman), and she will do "well" tonight as she has set expectations sooooooo low, or it will be an absolute catastrophe. There is no middle ground with her.
Please watch these videos if you haven't seen them:
1. Her answer on the economy and the bailout
2. Trying to name one other time McCain has supported stricter regulation
3. Trying to name one newspaper she reads (hint: she can't name one!!)
4. Trying to name one other Supreme Court except Roe v. Wade (she names Roe v. Wade again!!!).
5. Palin talking about the Rick Davis case
Wow. She is in WAY OVER HER HEAD. If someone out there can defend her possibly become our VP, please post your comments, because if we thought we had fun for the past 8 years with "Bushisms", the next 4 years will provide an exponential number of "Palinisms".
But, seriously, this is sad, because it shouldn't be a joke, and McCain could legitimately die while in office. I am not trying to be mean, but anyone who looks at her performance objectively has got to admit that she simply is not a strong enough candidate.
