Sarah Palin on Obama's SOTU: Rilly, Rilly Dumb
Every time this woman opens her mouth, I am constantly reminded of how many more women are more qualified to do her job than she is. But then, not many women would want to have both nice legs AND the empty-headed logic tailor-made for the modern day Republican party. That is why they picked her, after all...the legs, I mean. But I digress...
Now Mrs. Palin is a contributor to Fox News, and she was out in full effect before and after the President's speech to give her take on what would be said, and what was said. But, like the movie Avatar, I knew what I was getting before I saw her speak. She is a skipping record in a skirt, saying nothing more than what we've heard her say a billion times before about "what...the people...want" in her broken Alaskan cadence. As if she "rilly" knows what they want-- she can't even decided whether or not she's a teabagger or just your typical run-of-the-mill Republican (and she's not even that). She is nothing more than a political celebrity, a cross between Scott Brown and Glenn Beck (although Beck managed to out-crazy her in his interview).
And of course, Sean Hannity was right there with her, leaving a trail of bread crumbs for her to follow. He set 'em up, she tried to know 'em down. I love how now she is supporting the work of fact checkers when someone else is involved, especially when she has such a dysfunctional relationship with facts. When she talks about "words spoken, that may not even be true...coming from our President...", I think of "death panels" and William Ayers. This woman can lie with the best of them, but she never let's the truth get in the way of her mouth.
By the way, why does everyone at Fox News continue to call her "Governor"? She is barely even that-- everyone knows that she never even completed her term. Maybe she should be "half-governor"?
Alright, this is turning into another Palin-bashing session, so let me stop here. There really is nothing more to say about this person that hasn't been said a billion times before, by people who are far-more articulate than myself. But if I had to say anything in summation about Sarah Palin and her involvement in the national political stage, it would be this: I wish this decision was based on more than the fact that she is an attractive woman that happened to be involved in politics. She being tapped as the VP nominee of the party was akin to Michael Steele's selection; they fit the most superficial characteristics of the two most popular Democrats of that time (Clinton and Obama). And the biggest problem that I have with both is their smug indignation, when they both happened to be in the right place at the right time. Without Clinton and Obama, both would still be nestled firmly in the bossom of relative obscurity.
