Let’s Review

January 5th, 2009

Let’s see. She has only a few year’s experience as governor of a state with a small population, and before that, a few more years as a small-town mayor. Her career is tainted with wrongdoing and scandal, her achievements blown way out of proportion. Her husband belongs to a secessionist party. While she herself pushes an abstinence-only policy for sex education, her teenage daughter got knocked up out of wedlock with a guy whose mother just got arrested for selling drugs. When she herself gave birth to a premature Down’s baby, she refused medical treatment, flew across the continent and then made a long car trip, all while in labor, so she could give birth at a small-town hospital. Her performance handling interviews with the press were painfully, embarrassingly abysmal. She lied constantly on the campaign trail in ways that were astonishingly easy to see through. She stirred up crowds to the point where they were shouting death threats to the opposition candidate. And, oh yeah, she gave a Thanksgiving PR photo op in front of a guy slaughtering turkeys.

And she is the new Great White Hope for the Republican Party. They are jazzed, they love her and then some.

Amazing. I mean, they made up some pretty lurid and insulting stuff about Obama during the campaign, complete fiction, and tried to say this is why we shouldn’t elect him–yet Palin’s true story is even worse, and right-wingers don’t even seem to notice.

I’m sorry, but could somebody explain to me what is wrong with right-wingers? I mean, there’s only so much one can explain away with blind party loyalty and rank hypocrisy. This goes way beyond any of that.

    If the world doesn’t agree with us, then the world is wrong.
