Is this who we want to help run our country?

Is this our next leader?

Yeah…Sarah Palin…

Is she related to Michael Palin?  This is already playing out like a Monty Python sketch.  Remember the Twit Races?  When I first heard the news that they picked her,  I was taken aback.  Who is she?  Alaska has a governor? 

Ms. Palin is a beauty pageant winner with a B.S. in communications-journalism who worked briefly as a sports reporter for KTUU-TV in Anchorage, Alaska.  She served two terms on the Wasilla city council and then became the mayor for two terms.   In late 2006, Palin became Alaska’s first woman governor.  OK, good for her, that’s some experience… 

On July 11 2008 Palin dismissed Public Safety Commissioner Walter Monegan. She offered him a position as executive director of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, which he turned down.  Palin cited performance-related issues for the dismissal.  Monegan has alleged that his dismissal was connected to his failure to fire Palin’s former brother-in-law, Alaska State Trooper Mike Wooten.  This is still under investigation.  OK, that’s some controversy…

She has five children. Her first son, Track, was born eight months after her wedding.  Hmmm…eight months…does this mean I can call him Eight Track?  Her last child born just four months ago has Down Syndrome.  It was just announced recently that her 17-year-old daughter is 5 months pregnant.  After spending one day at Disneyland with three kids all under the age of 10, I can’t imagine what it would be like to be raising 5 kids with one preggers and the other having special needs.  That’s a tough job that would require a lot of attention.  Hmmm…all that responsibility and a run for the VP spot…OK…I’m into that.  Some people can do that–some…people…can.

So after processing all of this for as long as I could stand it, here’s what I have to say;

“I do not want this person to ever have the chance to be the president of our country.” (see freakish photo of the American flag bikini wearing gun totin’ soccer mom.  If there was anything remotely similar to that photo on the Obama side, we’d never hear the end of it.)

She scares the hell out of me!  Beauty pageant winner turned newscaster turned politician?  I know the type all too well.  She’s an all-about-me-borderline-personality-disorder-actor/politician freak!

Seriously,  what kind of person would accept an offer to run for the VP spot knowing full-well that they don’t have much experience (sorry babe, you just don’t) , they’re under investigation, they have a four-month-old with special needs and–this is my favorite–even though they support abstinence only, their unwed, under-aged daughter is pregnant?  She knew when she said yes, she would be throwing her kid and its unborn baby to the wolves of the global news media.  You’re going to take one for mommy’s team you little bitch!  Would any rational person have said yes to that job?  Sure they would, if they were an opportunistic attention grabbing freak with an offer to get the world’s attention handed to them on a silver platter. 

Does this photo disturb you?

Ahh, here’s Sarah with her son Eight-Track who’s going off to a pointless war and her pregnant teenage daughter Bristol (rhymes with pistol?) and her dazed & confused infant child.  Sarah is running for the Vice President of the United States of America.  Hey, Sarah and her fucked up family can do it–but not yours. 

Regarding her recent child, Sarah Palin said: “To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters,” she said. “I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House.’’

My mom, who is a Republican, would never have subjected her children–normal needs or special needs or whatever needs–to such scrutiny.  That baby is her glorious photo op accessory and she’s using it as a pawn to get sympathy so that people will vote for her. 

Palin is a “firm supporter of abstinence-only education in schools” according to CNN in 2006.  When running for governor in 2006, Palin wrote, “Yes, the explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support,” in response to a questionnaire by the Eagle Forum Alaska.

Explicit sex-ed programs?  I bet Bristol has got a YouTube video posted somewhere that would knock the socks off of any standard Sex-Ed film.  Yeah, this may come as a big surprise, Bristol has a few photos on the Internet.  Apparently she likes Captain Morgan rum, guns and…well…we can’t really tell which guy she likes (don’t be naughty, there’s only two).  Now don’t get me wrong, I personally don’t care about unwed teenage pregnancies.  That’s the breaks kid–deal with it.  I do care about a hypocrite being against sex education running for Vice President asking us to leave her family alone while her daughter grows up real fast.   What really, really bothers me is that if Obama had an under aged pregnant daughter…I mean c’mon!  Ann Coulter would write an entire book on it.  He’d be crispy burnt toast.  End of story.  No argument.  The RepubliMcCains would rake him over the coals.  I don’t care what anyone says, if the tables were turned…

Palin gave birth to her first child (the soon to be war hero) just eight months after getting married and now one of her own children is five months pregnant.  The explicit sex-ed programs better find her support or she’ll be a great-grandma by the age of 60.

Yeah, yeah, yeah…I’m trying to “leave the family alone” as requested (just like the Republicans would do–not!), but I am not going to let up on Sarah Palin the freak-a-zoid soccer mom who preaches abstinence for everyone (except her own kids).  C’mon people!!  Does she lead by example?  No…no!  The Emperor is naked!  Is she ready to lead?  Is she? 

Ms. Palin stated; “From the inside, no family ever seems typical.  That’s how it is with us. Our family has the same ups and downs as any other, the same challenges and the same joys.”

I disagree.  Her family does not have the same ups and downs as any other.  Her family gets to behave in a way that that contradicts what she as a politician stands for and that’s bullshit. 

I commend Ms. Palin, I really do.  She is the first time in my life where I’ve had a visceral reaction to a politician to the point where I feel I should do something about it.  Thank you Sarah.  Thanks for making me puke.

4 Thoughts on “I’m Speechless.

  1. I’m so glad to hear that I wasn’t the only who puked, lol. Seriously, I’m just as speechless. Are these conservatives really that clueless? Even I would have given them more credit. The last eight years of bullshit and total incompetance was obviously not enough. Oh well, if the Republifucks win this election we can kiss whatever little good that is still left in this country goodbye. Banana Republic, anyone? What a circus. What a shame. What a waste of a once great country. If there really is a god…then God help us.

  2. I don’t trust her at all. She’s got no problems in her daughter’s supposed choice to keep the baby but would she be willing to allow other families to have a choice in an unplanned teen pregnancy? Nope! Not even if the teen was raped. And so much for her kid listening to her “Abstinence only” lectures!

    Interestingly, the talking heads this morning on CNN and MSNBC referred to this photo without once mentioning that it is a fake. In fact, on CNN, it was said to have made repugnican men sit up and get enthusiastic.

    i just gave O’bama (my favorite irishman) $250.. mccain and his wife patsy(oops, cindy) are so repulsive…..

    Oh, and one more thing.

    My son is mentally retarded. Sarah Palin stands diametrically opposed to the support, sustinance, and succor of our most vulnerable citizens.
    She is a rabid proponent of the YOYO society: a belief system which uses and encourages the use of lethal force to impose their pro-birth ideology. This pro-birth ideology (based upon supernatural beiefs and driven by male-dominated urges to control both patrimony and the workforce) denies support to our society’s most vulnerable members: children, the handicapped, the elderly, the sick, halt, and lame. She will pay the breeders to raise your taxes and increase your costs while denying sustinance to those already born and struggling to survive. After all, if they had just worked harder they could have overcome their disabilties, weaknesses, poor education, poorer choices, and achieved the amerkan dream.

    give to o’bama…he ain’t perfect but he so far ahead of the mccain/palin he’s off the charts.
