"What's the difference between a pit bull and a hockey mom? Lipstick."
--Sarah Palin, John McSame's pick for VP
The corollary to this is:
"You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig."
Sarah Palin reminds me of the obnoxious gym teacher in all those movies, but instead of the proud and smug school principal standing by her side, there is the elderly and slightly befuddled/embarrassed-appearing Top of The Ticket, standing slightly to her left and way out of focus in the background. Personally, I don't know how anyone could stand to the right of her.
We have finally fallen to the level of American Idol politics, where, with the right handling, anyone can be a star, or in this case, vice president. This woman has no better qualifications to be 7 minutes away from the presidency than I do, 7 minutes being the average time between when you stop breathing and when your brain is dead. Although with this choice, John McCain may have proven to be the exception to this biological fact, making my arguement moot.
Sarah Palin is 44 years old, doesn't believe in birth control, and has recently given birth to a baby with Down syndrome who is destined to be someone's responsibility for his entire life. And apparently abstinence training isn't all that it is cracked up to be, considering that her 17-year-old daughter is knocked up. And while Jamie Lynn Spears' parents were trashed by the right (Right Bill O'Reilly?), the Palins' are extolled as paragons of parental virtue as they parade their baby with the baby bump on worldwide television. Ptooey. And does little Bristol want to have this baby and actually marry the self-described "redneck" at the tender age of 17, or is it just good for mommy's career? How does she like being paraded around the world as a poster child for "family values?" By the way, did mommy, or did she not, veto funds for single women and children? Mommy's a fucking hypocrite. Sorry. Gobama. Gojoe.
Mommy's stupid too. I just read that she said at a campaign stop today, when asked about Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae, that they were getting too big and cost too much to the American tax payer. Uhh, excuse me, these are private entities, at least they were up until today. She has 58 days to shoot herself, and poor old McCain, in the foot. Thank God.
