Holy God. I knew he'd screw it up, but...

McCain has outdone himself this time. Really outdone himself. Take a bow, you jackass- oh wait, you're too old to bend at the waist. How dare you be so reckless with the future of America and the World that you would put second-in-line to the Presidency a person who cited her experience sitting on the PTA board of her kid's school in her speech accepting the VP slot on your ticket?
A person who you apparently think is qualified to be commander-in-chief of the most powerful military in the world despite having no knowledge or experience of global geopolitics and our most pressing conflicts?
what's that? There are bears in Alaska, and they're sort of like terrorists? Her son is in the army therefore she will use her mother's love and her "mom's sixth sense" to guide him and all his friends to sandwiches and safe havens wherever they may find themselves under fire?

"Palin for VP '08: Because of her, a school cafeteria in Alaska now has orange juice instead of Soda Pop!". What. The. Fuck. What kind of a sick-ass joke has this nation become? Our own political "leaders" are mocking us and testing the limits of our self-destructive stupidity. I don't know about you, but I'm outraged that McCain's opinion of the intelligence of American voters is apparently this low.

Hansraj Maharawal drunkenly provides a counterpoint to my bitter consternation:
"But come on, she's given birth to five children. How many children has Joe Biden given birth to, through his own vaginal canal? Huh? How many, smartass?"

People, where is the justice, I totally tried to bet a few people that he would chose her, but no one would be against me!

ß. Andrigon said...

Are you hanging out with Hansraj? Truly?

ß. Andrigon said...

Jenny Ruth completely agrees with you, by the way, & says he's using her disgustingly.

I feel a bit more this way, tho:
Remember, these are Bush's voters we're talking about.

Anyone want to bet against me that he will get a big bump in the polls this week, with VP news & the RNC - things which, in theory, should both be embarrassments after Obama's successes.

Brains said...

I don't bet polls. But to Grainne, I've overheard maybe five women say the fact she has five children is the most extreme turn-off.

Quill said...

Holy shit! You guys have heard Hansraj speak in the last 4 years? How is this possible?

grainne proinseas said...

oh yes. I still know Hansraj. And he still loves you, Quill, never fear.

Obama's statement about 17-yr-old Bristol Palin's pregnancy is totally noble:

"Mr. Obama said the pregnancy “has no relevance to Governor Palin’s performance as a governor or her potential performance as a vice president.” He added that, “my mother had me when she was 18. How a family deals with issues and teen-age children — that shouldn’t be the topic of our politics.”

“So,” he added, “I would strongly urge people to back off these kinds of stories.” "
