PalinWatch: Day 42

I think the average American would be safer handing a fully loaded Desert Eagle to a toddler having a tantrum than to have Sarah Palin doing anything in the White House other than vacuuming the carpets, but on the other hand I do realise that some Americans do like her.

Why though?

She hasn't got a clue about the world outside Alaska, she's doing her damnedest to piss off the leaders of Pakistan and Russia, and she thinks dinosaurs were walking around on the earth the same time as mankind was!

This made last night's BBC news all the more interesting. A report by Justin Webb from the fantastically named Strongsville, Ohio featured members of the public being asked:

"Why are you voting for John McCain?"
"Because of Sarah Palin! Woohoo!!"
"Because she's beautiful, she's young, she's a working mom! Woohoo!!"

Hmmmm...not really concerned with the McCain policies then? The environment? The 'War On Terror'? The financial crisis? Her possible abuse of office in the so-called 'Troopergate' scandal? The fact that she's all style and no substance?



I think I'll stop now, I'm getting angry.

Sarah Palin is a South Park mom made flesh. And that's not a recommendation.

Surely to God Obamamania will be enough to ensure this woman never sees the inside of the White House?

Don't be angry; be afraid, be very afraid.

Jock, I can't remember who it was that said "Never underestimate the stupidity of large groups of people". They dont get much stupider then the fuckwits who vote over here, believe me. It seems the smarter a person becomes, the more apathy they show toward the political process. That tells me 2 things.
1. Everyone is an anarchist at heart(a good thing)
2. The majority of voting americans don't know their arse from a hole in the ground (a very bad thing)

The Mack really lost me with this one. Why he did not choose Romney is totally beyond me. I guess he's crashed enough expensive government aircraft and taken out enough power lines in Spain I should have expected this.

I think it is time to focus on my representation in Congress.

Of course, my Congressman is a really good man by the name's this nerdy bald guy with glasses who doesn't look good on television...give me a minute...Tom Somebody...
