John McCain today did about the smartest thing I’ve seen from him so far. He picked Alaska governor Sarah Palin to be his VP. She’s been a governor for about a year and a half.
Already the Obamachumps have started in.
Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York said McCain was taking a “roll of the dice” and declared that Palin’s “lack of experience makes the thought of her assuming the presidency troubling.”
Let’s ponder this one for a second. Barack Obama graduated college, became a “community activist” (wtf ever that is), was a state legislative puppet for Tony Rezco in the most corrupt state in the nation, became a US senator, immediately started running for president, and has actually worked for like 140 days as an actual senator.
All campaign we’ve been told over and over and over by the media that that’s okay! See, because John McCain has tons more experience, experience doesn’t matter, because Obama has like hope and change and shit.
So Palin is a governor for about as long as Obama has been a senator. Only she had to actually, you know, make decisions and stuff. Before that she was a mayor, city council, and had a government energy job. Being a governor is a lot more important than being a senator, because you’re an actual executive, rather than somebody who votes on the actions of real decision makers.
So now the Obama campaign can attack about lack of experience in the Repub #2, when their #1 has no experience? Nice.
I’ve already heard people saying that McCain was just “pandering” to the Republican base by, you know, picking an actual conservative republican. So out of the 4 people involved, we’ve got a Marxist, a Socialist, a Conservative Democrat, and finally we’ve got an actual Republican. This has to be terribly shocking for the media.
For the first time in this campaign, I’m actually excited. John McCain actually picked a Republican. Maybe the press can go back to saying he’s a maverick again.
Obama picks Biden. YAWN. We don’t need to go out of our way to pick him apart, since he’s cast 10,000 votes, and most of them are stupid. So you’ve got one brand new senator, and one ancient senator. Except that the dems flipped it, and stuck the inexperienced one first. Because he was prettier and could read a good speech off a teleprompter.
The repubs have one ancient senator, and one young governor. She’s actually prettier than Obama too.
So while Obama goes off about how we can just abort our “mistake” children, Palin raises her baby with down syndrome while her Eskimo husband works a blue collar job in the oil fields. While McCain gets blasted for having 5 houses, Obama lives in one bought for him by a mobster. While Obama is pretty good at basketball, Palin can shoot a moose through the eye at 200 yards with a 338 Winchester Magnum. McCain’s spouse makes beer. Obama’s spouse wrote a thesis about racism is rampant in America.
Do the math on this one folks, and then get back to me with which side is actually going to connect with the American people.
I’ve not got the quote yet, but apparently one of the Obama campaign people has made negative comments about how Palin comes from a small town background. Oh please… Oh please push that one. Merry Christmas for us. Do you democrats realize just how much most of America absolutely hates being told what to do by a bunch of big city elitists?
I’m trying to find out everything I can about Palin, but what I’ve gotten so far is that she’s squeaky clean. There’s been exactly one scandal under her watch, that she’s been 100% upfront about, and the guilty were punished. We get a new Obama scandal daily, depending on which former terrorist or America hating douche bag he’s hanging out with now, but I digress.
She’s been consistent in her defense of the unborn. That offends a bunch of you, but well, too damn bad. Keep your pants zipped and quit killing babies because it makes your life inconvenient. The next person that tells me that abortion is good because it keeps kids from being “raised in poverty” I’m going to punch in the throat, because I was raised pretty damn poor, and I’m doing just fine, thanks.
She’s good on guns. I don’t think you can be anti-gun and get elected in Alaska. Their democrats own machineguns. Having large animals that will eat you tends to keep self-defense in perspective. That’s kind of why I wanted to go ahead with my Cloned Velociraptors Let Free in Manhattan idea.
When Alaska’s state government had a surplus of money, she gave it back.
Her predecessor bought an executive jet. She sold the executive jet and uses her own private vehicles. She apparently knows how to fly a float plane, and owns one, which is worth 10 million cool points.
So overall, looking good. I’m cautiously optimistic.
