Can someone please, please explain to me why people think Sarah Palin is qualified to run, or at least co-pilot, the country? Because all of this “she’s just like one of us! She’s a hockey mom!” bullshit has me fighting back to urge to spray a horde of rednecks with a fire hose blasting icy cold water at full force on the coldest day of winter.
Tell me, since when was your neighbor qualified to run the country? Or another parent on the PTA? Your small town’s mayor? Really? Fuck, I think I’m semi-intelligent sometimes but I am in no regards qualified to RUN THE GODDAMN NATION. Uh oh, I just damned America. Guess Jeremiah Wright and I will be burning in the same unpatriotic circle of hell together.
While my Democratic self is giggling at how the McCain camp has literally shot themselves in both feet by choosing Palin over dozens of much more qualified candidates as the VP hopeful, it almost makes me question the red portion of the nation more than I did on November 2, 2004.
To me, we need someone exceptional to be first and second in command. Not an everyday Joe the Plumber*. This isn’t a communist nation, people. The woman still can’t even answer simple questions properly and as a result is still sheltered from the media. And she’s a representative of our country??
Or am I smoking crack here?
* Last I checked, Joe the Plumber didn’t get $150,000 to blow on “borrowed” clothes that will “eventually” go to charity. Maybe again this is just me, but a wardrobe worth thousands of dollars from Neiman Marcus doesn’t exactly scream “We the People.”
