I guess we shouldn't expect too much from people who gave Bush enough votes so he could cheat his way into office two times in eight years!
The Republicans this time around have made it clear they don't give a damn about the issues which are so important to the future of this country. They have taken a former beauty pageant contestant, turned mayor, turned a do-nothing governor and made her into a true Republican CELEBRITY!
Everyone knows that for millions of our fellow citizens, that's all that is really important. Someone who's a CELEBRITY can do no wrong. A CELEBRITY can be dumb as a brick, but she's a CELEBRITY!
Listen to how people respond when asked the question why they like Palin. I haven't heard one yet that had anything to do with issues, other than the issue of abortion by right wing extremists or Roman Catholic fanatics. That's it.
You'd think we are voting for the prom queen of the local high school!
And just when you think it couldn't get any worse, Justin Paulette reports this morning on AOL news that Sarah Palin now has a series of action figures.
McCain gushes: "Isn't this the most marvelous running mate in the history of the nation? Sarah Palin -- she's magnificent."
Well, not really. Action figures or no, she's without doubt one of the worst running mates in the history of the nation. But, because the hoi polloi is fascinated and consumed by CELEBRITY, the fact she's a liar and a cheat and totally and completely unqualified for the vice presidency, will not matter.
Jesus, we're in trouble!
