McCain's Choice [Aug. 30th, 2008|12:28 am]

John McCain's pick for VP, if you haven't heard, is Alaskan Senator Sarah Palin.

Seeing as McCain and the GOP are really REALLY trying to get the idea across that Barack Obama is inexperienced, McCain's choice seems extremely hyprocritical as both of them haven't spent a lot of time in "the game". Obama is a first term senator, and Palin is a first term governor of Alaska. Both Obama and Palin are about the same age. Not only does it seem hypocritical to me, it seems to be blatant pandering to frustrated voters who REALLY REALLY wanted Hillary to get the nod. It also seems a way to go "Well, if you vote for me, we can make history too as she'd be the first woman vice president!". It doesn't seem to be a choice based on what's best for the nation, who would be the most qualified for the job, but instead, solely, what could capture the most votes.

Someone on a Star Trek discussion forum gave McCain "props" for "thinking for himself and not just going along with what his advisors and consultants say". Independent thinking is good, but... I wish I was drinking coffee at that moment so I could spit it all over the computer I was using. Are we really going to give someone props for disregarding advice given to him who obviously know enough of what they are talking about to get hired in the first place? Is this "go it alone" policy really a GOOD thing? Oh yeah, this advice is sounds and logical, but I am going to do whatever I want because I am the guy running for office. Everyone else can screw themselves.

Republicans acting Hypocritical? Tell me something new.

After the fact...

Sarah Palin... What a dunce, huh? It wasn't her detractors that made her look like a complete and total ass. It was the crap that came out of her mouth in interviews and during debates that made her look like she didn't know her ass from a hole in the ground. I'm being harsh, but a lot of conservatives practically jizzed themselves over the this VP candidate, blowing their load over this gun toting hockey mom thinking things about Palin that's on par with with what some democrats and liberals felt about Obama.

She came off as incredibly dumb. Sorry, Sarah. The Vice President is not "in charge" of the Senate. If you can't get that right, I can't imagine what you'd do if John McCain kicked the bucket. I was also annoyed how she wouldn't answer questions that deviated from the script ever so slightly. How can you praise leadership like that?

I am so happy to post that the desperate attempt to grab voters with Sarah Palin backfired. I think I'm happier that she is NOT going to be our VP than Obama winning... and that was something else. Anybody see his acceptance speech after it was announced? Powerful stuff. BS? Maybe? Rhetoric? Maybe, but I felt motivated, and that "Yes we can!" message really resonated with me.

Rather than that stupid "No-Bama" crap I see all about town, I follow that up with...

GO-BAMA! (But that's also stupid, so I just wish him the best of luck cleaning up Bush Jr.'s mess.)
