A political rant- so unlike me!

No, I don't care that Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant. I do, however, think that she's horribly unqualified to be vice president and John McCain was smoking crack and just wanted a pretty face to look at. Seriously, what the fuck was he thinking? I'm looking for a job too, John! My youngest kid is 3- so she pretty much takes care of herself and she doesn't have special needs, except for the occasional profanity!

And what the fuck was Palin thinking by accepting? Did she just get excited at the prospect without knowing what is really involved? This isn't Mrs. America- it's the Vice President of America! Doesn't she have more important things to do like take care of her 4 month old baby and soon to be grandchild- 'cause let's be honest- she will be having a hand in the rearing of that child!

McCain wants the 'woman' vote that was so disenfranchised after Hillary was out. So, just the fact that she has a vagina means that we are supposed to vote for her??? She stands for everything that Hillary did NOT! Do they really think women are that stupid?

She is Pro-Life. I applaud that she has her beliefs and passion- good for her! Tell me, though, how will that help you run my country? When 72 year old McCain kicks the bucket, which is certainly possible, will she and all of her NRA buddies go and line the streets at Planned Parenthood? Then magically, the economy, foreign affairs, health care, and the environment will all fall into God's good graces, right? The recession that the Republicans have been in denial of will disappear. The mortgage crisis- solved! Hallelujah!

I'm not a political person, which may be abundantly clear by some factual discrepancies here. I have been watching far too much CNN and need an intervention! Please don't send me any hate mail- blame it on the new meds- that always works!

I am so angry about this pick too. Unfortunately, I think we have far more serious concerns than the simple act of trying to appease disgruntled Hillary supporters (although I think that plays a major part.) Go check out my friend Fran's blog: http://festinalente-franiam.blogspot.com/

Her post from yesterday had an eye opening article about the issue (it's not too long, I promise. And worth reading.)

Good points. I think McCain just wanted to have a pretty girl on each arm. What a moron. He looks so freakin' old next to her.

I really would have liked to have been a part of that conversationl.."so who do you want NOW??" "how about some pretty unknown unqualified woman...are there any of those??"

Geez...politics suck.

Rochelle said...

Too funny. Yes, I think it is funny because it doesn't matter. Obama is going to win for sure now. And I won't be disappointed in that.

And, please, don't send me any hate mail either!

Yea, he WAS smoking something. She is beautiful and has a vagina, but that is about it! I can't believe she accepted either WHAT WAS SHE THINKING! Ugh.

lol agree with you 100 percent. The scary thing is she could be president easily like you said if McCain wins and he croaks. I'm not sure loving guns and wanting to take away a womans right to choose is going to get that Hillary vote. Who knows stranger things have happened. I wouldn't even be surprised if she eventually is president due to democrats magical abilities to blow elections and Mccain's age of course.

I would think she would have her hands full with her personal life ...let alone the drama in Alaska...Can you just imagine what everyone would say if she was a Democrat and had all this going on...I would feel this way if she were a guy and running for Vice President! Her husband is an executive for BP oil company...this would seem like a pretty big conflict of interest...I think we have had enough of that these last 8 years.

I do agree that she will have her hands full with her new baby and soon to be grand baby. I hope that she will be able to handle the concerns of the nation, AND her growing family. So lets just pray we get a president in office, either McCain or Obama, that can make the right decisions for our country, our safety and the future of our children. Man, I should have ran for president! I have a little extra time, between cooking supper and blogging!

Crazed Mom said...

Holy crap I am alughing my ass off here! So funny Tena. Why doncha telling us how you REALLY feel. Hehe. Oh btw I completely agree with you.

Jill said...

Amen.

So glad to hear that people have opinions these days! It warms my heart.

Sorry - I'm a Democrat here anyway... get the Republicans out of office.

Terri said...

I happen to like Palin. She's real which is more than can be said about many political wannabes.

georgie said...

It seems I am one of the few repubs out here in the blog-O-sphere these days...thats OK...I rarely talk politics and the lil bit I do around here(my house) I was informed last night by middle bean THAT (keep in mind he is 13) norstradamous(i know I spelled that wrong) predicted the death of a pres then a woman would take over...so he thinks McCain will win and then die....

Tena I would take the "fuck" words any day of the week vs the political banter that goes on around here...love ya girl!

Aubrey said...

Whoo-hoo!! Loved it.

I was watching the season premier of Bill Maher. Love him. Anyway he referred to them as the Maverick & the MILF. I thought that was pretty funny.

jaime said...

first thing i thought when i heard about this was "holy shit, smart move!" i agree w/ you- let me just put that out there-- but i think it was pure genius on his end and for the FIRST time i am worried that Obama will lose. If the girls on The View like the idea, we are DOOMED! LMAO!
