John McCain, Beauty Queens and Aliens from Outer Space

When John McCain announced his choice for VP I immediately began to hyperventilate… I cannot wait to see how this plays out in both the media and in households across the nation.

Sarah Palin for VP…

Really?

This is the woman McCain is hoping will steal all those Clinton supporters?

A pro-life ex-beauty queen whose only political know-how comes from being the esteemed leader of the great state of Alaska?

Mercy.

I think we’re being Punk’d. Honestly, I do.

I’m sure Palin’s amassed a great following… most likely all 17 residents of Alaska think she’s done a bang-up job… and I’m just as certain she can shoot skeet and ice fish with the best of ’em… but let’s get real here.

McCain goes on and on and on about how Obama doesn’t have the experience necessary to run the country… and then… turns around and picks Palin as his running mate?

This decision will pretty much force McCain to give up what was perhaps his most appealing argument against Obama… or at least it should… I mean what kind of idiot is he going to look like if he keeps pushing that particular point… while simultaneously embracing… uh… what’s her name again?

Oh yea. Palin. I almost forgot for a second there… probably because no one even knows who the heck this lady is…

The woman has been the governor of Alaska for 2 years.

No, not 2 terms. 2 years.

Prior to that her experience consists of… well…

Not a whole lot.

She was a council member in a tiny Alaskan town from 1992-1996… and after that she was the mayor of said tiny town.

Yep, that about covers it.

She’s got the same amount of foreign policy experience as I do… which equals… uh… none.

Next to this lady, Obama looks like a Washington old-timer.

While Obama was gaining all that political experience McCain swears he doesn’t actually have, Governor Palin has been a very busy woman.

She has five kids… one of which is a very young baby, born in April with Down Syndrome.

Does she have time to help run the nation? I have 2 kids, neither of which have special needs, and I’m lucky I have the time to show up to work every day…

… and usually I’m late.

Just sayin’.

In addition to her busy home life and gubernatorial responsibilities, she is currently the subject of a legislative investigation for her alleged role in attempting to have a state trooper fired… a man who just happened to be going through a messy divorce with…

Palin’s sister.

What? A politician embroiled in scandal?

She should fit right in.

Personally, I think McCain picked her cuz she’s hot… I mean, yea, she’s got no experience, but she’s a babe… so she can’t be all bad, right? We all know about McCain’s penchant for the pretty young thangs… and let’s face it…

Cindy’s no spring chicken anymore.

Plus, all that plastic surgery is starting to make her look suspiciously like an alien. Not the illegal kind… but…

… from outer space.

Only in politics can any of this possibly be taken seriously.

Get Out and Vote!

Today is voting day in Missouri, so Missouri residents who are registered- which I know all of us are- please don’t forget to vote!

(Cough)

In addition to the obvious- Governor, judges, etc- there are a lot of other people as well as propositions on the ballot. If you’re like me, you can only follow so much… I’m sure I haven’t kept abreast of everything and expect to see a bunch of stuff I haven’t yet had a chance to research.

I say, when in doubt, vote democrat.

Just kidding.

Seriously, if you’d like to brush up on some of the issues/people you can expect to see on your ballot, I recommend this link. You’ll find good information there, broken down on both state and local levels.

Showing up to vote is our civic duty, so we all need to get out there and do it. This is a great time to excercise one of our fundamental rights as guaranteed by the Constitution.

If we don’t get our butts out to the polls, we honestly have no right to bitch about anything. 

Personally, I love to bitch about everything, so you know I’ll be there as soon as I get off work today with bells and whistles on. 

Unfortunately, it looks like there has been a relatively low turn-out so far, which officials are blaming on the heat.

Currently I’m stuck driving my brother’s 17 year old Honda, which has no air conditioning (in a moment of madness I let him take my car- which most definitely has A/C- out of town for the week).

So if my sweatin’ ass can make it to the polls, everyone else can too.

If you do decide to vote, as I hope you all will, but don’t know where to go, you can click here for a list of polling places. Don’t forget to bring some ID- it doesn’t need to have your picture on it, but they need to be able to verify that you are who you say you are (no bogus voting under the name of Chaze77, please!).

Yep, I think that about covers it…
