Well, Wednesday night at the RNC certainly was interesting…
Mike Huckabee lost me pretty early on… though I did enjoy some of the anecdotes he shared about his upbringing. That part was kinda cool.
Personally, I think Rudy Giuliani was the star of the show… even though he was talkin’ trash about my boy Obama… I still think he was a hoot.
The much-anticipated Sarah Palin, however, is a different story.
She wants us to believe she represents change…
Seems a good start would have been to use someone other than George Bush’s speech writer.
I love all the ironies and flat-out inconsistencies that are Sarah Palin.
For example, it’s so ironic that she is waaaaay far on the right on all issues involving women’s reproductive rights… believes in abstinence-only teaching… and has a pregnant 17 year old child.
It’s also ironic that the woman dogs Obama out for his “lack of experience” in national/international politics and meanwhile… she’s got… uh… well… basically none.
Obama may not be the most experienced politician on the planet, but let’s not forget this one important thing- He was elected- by his own party, by his fellow Americans- to be the Presidential Nominee for the Democrats.
Li’l Ms. Alaskan Sun certainly was not elected as the nominee for… anything… at least not where this particular election is concerned.
Nor would she have been- even if the Republicans had been given the option to do so… Cuz… um… until about a week ago no one even knew who she was.
Anyway, back to what I was saying-
Ironic that she doesn’t believe Community Organizers have any real responsibilities… which is what Obama was, two decades ago… it’s how he got his political start, if you will…
Personally, I think it beats the hell out of the whole I-got-my-start-in-politics-by-joining-the-PTA-just-like-everyone-else rhetoric, but…
I also realize she thinks her part-time job as mayor for the Alaskan equivalent of Mayberry came with responsibilities galore…
For all the challenges her teeny political gig in Wasilla came with…
Mayor Palin was the first person to hold that particular office… in the entire town’s history… who had to hire someone to help her handle all the demands that came with being the mayor of a cute little village in Alaska.
And still managed to almost get ousted.
She’s got what it takes, alright.
