And the winners are…
#1 Casey Anthony
#2 John McCain
#3 Sarah Palin
#4 OJ Simpson
If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you’re “exotic, different.”
Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers — a quintessential American story.
If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track — you’re a maverick.
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
Attend five different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.
If you spend three years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a constitutional law professor, spend eight years as a state senator representing a district with more than 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.
If your total resume is: local weather girl, four years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with fewer than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive.
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising two beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a Christian.
If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.
If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner-city community,
then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America’s.
If your husband is nicknamed “First Dude,” with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
OK, much clearer now.
Ok so if McCain’s biggest concern about Barack Obama is his lack of experience, he needs to slowly start biting his tongue about that, since his pick of Sarah Palin completely takes that off the table. If McCain becomes president and for some reason drops dead, this woman will have to take the position of president, and has no more experience than Barack Obama. This is some appalling HYPOCRISY, for a campaign.
To everyone else out there who also thinks experience matters, lets see what they’ll have to say now. To me personally, Palin could be a good VP and President, regardless of her “inexperience”. I just don’t think picking Sarah Palin is going to help John McCain as much as he thinks it will. He’s created the buzz for now, but believe me, within the next few days people (including stench feminists) will sit back and actually examine this choice.
The bottom line is McCain has chosen her SOLELY because she’s a woman, which can be argued as a very sexist move, but of course it’s for a good thing, a VP nomination, but is still SOLELY based on her sex. A very big kiss-assy move. Will Hillary’s women supporters fall for this? I don’t think so. So if Hillary was on the ticket would he pick an African American to match his opposition? Hmm, he just might. Right now I think McCain is a politician, and in no way a president.
Let’s go back a bit here. So what you’re telling me is if anything happens to McCain as president, Sarah Palin would be the person to step into the Oval Office? I think that’s a bit against his argument so far.
Does John McCain have advisers at all? I think this is a complete giveaway to the Obama-Biden ticket. Sarah Palin on her own might be a good VP or president, but not on her dads, my bad, John McCain’s ticket. A Governor since 2006? Hmm. I think being in the senate gives much more national experience than being a governor. Senators discuss and vote on EVERY single national issue, not just about snow mobiles and iced roads. Obama having done this for 4 years is still more experienced than Sarah Palin to me. She is no match for Joe Biden, who will beat her hands down in a debate.
Also with regards to Sarah Palin’s statement on stage about some Hillary leaving 18 million cracks in the highest glass ceiling in america and the women in America shattering the ceiling once and for all, I think she should keep Hillary’s name out of her mouth and stop trying to jump on Hillary’s hard work.The fact that you’re a woman doesn’t make you equal or anywhere near Hillary Clinton.
On a wisdom scale of 1 to 10, I’ll give McCain’s pick of a VP a 4, while I’ll give Obama picking Joe Biden a 7. McCain’s first presidential decision proves to be very shaky, which is not what America needs right now.
I just launched a CNN Political Ticker Facebook application.
It’s an app for the CNN Political Ticker blog, which I’m a big fan of. Basically it pulls the latest posts from Political Ticker, then displays them in Facebook with photos and comments. Check it out here: http://apps.facebook.com/politicalticker/. The 2008 US elections are almost here, stay up to date with daily coverage and other politics on Facebook!
Barack Obama will be on SNL tomorrow night. This should be funny. He is set to be on the show with a look-alike of Sarah Palin. Hmm….i’m not sure how much of a good idea that is….but it should be fun to watch.
Ok so just a few months ago when Sarah Palin was interviewed on national TV about the possibility of her being on John McCain’s ticket, here’s what she had to say:
“As for that V.P. talk all the time,” she told CNBC’s Larry Kudlow in late July, “I tell ya, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me: What is it exactly that the V.P. does every day?”
“I’m used to being very productive and working real hard and in administration,” she continued. “We want to make sure that the V.P. slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that were trying to accomplish up her for the rest of the us before I can even start addressing that question.”
“It’s a pretty big job, madam governor,” Kudlow told her.
“This is a pretty cool job here, too, though as governor of Alaska,” Palin responded.
So between then and now, she seems to have figured out what it is a VP does everyday and is ready to be very UNproductive and NOT working real hard and NOT in administration. Wow.
That interview proves that Palin isn’t the superwoman she seems to be on this first day of her nomination. (hey Obama isn’t a superman either). These elections are about who is right for America NOW in TODAYS circumstances, not who’s a woman or black or who’s got more experience. If i’m correct in the next 36 minutes (by midnight Aug 29 2008), people will start to think deeper and the buzz will start dying down. That’s how long it takes non-FOX-News-watching Americans to realise the reality of created hype. Obama needs some sort of stunt right about now. Maybe he shd trip and fall off the stairs of his jet or something, and sprain an ankle.
I also dont think a while GOVERNOR should downplay the position of VP so badly, and then expect an entire country (the best country in the world) to elect her for that same position. I mean this isn’t like talking about professions or asking what a fireman does everyday. VP? Nah. Not acceptable. So basically she was tellin us Dick Cheney doesn’t do much everyday and SHE wont do much everyday.
I found this on Politicker.
