What The Fuck?

What, the President of the local PTA wasn't available? In what can only be called a desperation move, Senator John McBush selected Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. Worse, it's signals that John McBush has very poor judgement and the thought of this inexperienced woman becoming President should the 72 year old McBush die, makes me very nervous. Finally, her selection is an insult to women everywhere. I'm all for women having the chance to hold the highest office in the land, just not this woman. She has done nothing to deserve this and stands on issues important to women are an insult to all of us.

The Rundown:

Has been Governor for less than two years.

John McCain has been alive 28 years longer than Alaska has been a state.

Governor of one of the smallest states in the country. Alaska has 607,053 while Jefferson County, Kentucky (Louisville), where I live, has a population of 709,264 and is the center of a metro area that is home to 1,233,735 people. I didn't see Barack Obama asking our mayor to be his running mate.

Is a member of Feminist For Life, a strong anti-choice organization.

Is anti-GLBT.

A lifelong member of the NRA.

Believes that Creationism should be taught.

Is under an ethics investigation by the Alaska Legislature.

Before being elected Governor, Palin was the mayor of tiny Wasilla, Alaska, a bedroom community of Anchorage with fewer than 10,000 people.

Yep, she's qualified for the job, if you think that Michael "Heck of a job" Brownie was underrated.

frankly, i think his choice was a brilliant political move. unfortunately, most voters don't cast their vote based on the real issues. it's a popularity contest, and she's quite attractive, and provides the republican ticket a boost, imho.

She still has more experience than Obama.

More experience than Obama? Are you fucking kidding me? She's been Governor of one of the smallest states for less than 2 years and what else has she done? Nothing. She was a part time mayor of a tiny town in the Alaskan Outback. Oh yeah, she was a sportscaster for awhile. She was President of her local PTA.

You right wing nuts are priceless, simply priceless.

Obama was a law school prof who never published. A community organizer. A state senator. And a U.S. senator who's done nothing but run for President. And, he's only a senator because his Republican opponent had a sex scandal. No administrative experience. Never run a business.

He's an empty suit.

So you are saying that being part time mayor of Wasilla and Governor of ALaska is more important than President of the Harvard Law Review, and Ivy League Graduate, a state senator in one of the most powerful state legislatures, a law professor and US senator? That's seriously messed up, seriously.

Obama is a very bright man who is very qualified to hold the office. Palin is not qualified to go anywhere near the WHite House. No where near it. I've been to Wasilla, it's a joke of a town and does absolutely nothing to add to her credentials. Her college career was a joke.
