My man Lake is the political one, so I’m sure he’s going to be working over Governor Palin any moment now. So the Dems just came off of a successful convention, Hillary finally gave a speech where she she actually acknowledged that she is not longer going to be President of the United States, Bill Clinton did his thing, and Joe Biden was put through his paces.
It went well, and this week was supposed to show the Republican party right after so the American people can really see the differences between the parties. Wellllllll. Things aren’t exactly going as planned. First, McCain cut the analysis of Barack Obama’s speech short by announcing his VP Candidate. Now I had been working on my Mormon jokes all week and I know CNN had their debate clip package spliced up just right, but the ol maverick hit everyone with a curveball.
Sarah Palin? Really? Who is she? No really, who is she? Because of this wild choice, the word of the week in now “vetting”. First, the Republicans asked George Bush what it meant, and he said “Vettin? Ain’t that where you poke on them animals, and fix em up?”
Good one chief. You’re an idiot.
I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings.
Anyway, the Republicans must think vetting is derived from the military policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell” because they apparently didn’t run this decision by any damn body. OK? I mean I vet my appitezer and dinner order with the table harder than they worked this decision around the circuit. I mean damn, can it get worse?
Not that underage sex and teen pregnancy. Nice. Those are family values at work.
Then they get to deal with this during their party convention.
That just sucks right there. Especially since Bush and Brownie realllllly got that one wrong last time.
Even George Bush, sole possessor of the title of worst approval ratings ever can’t take it.
So Republicans. You’re starting to look desperate. Sarah Palin is not Hillary Clinton, ok? Repeating things over and over does not make them true or any more convincing. Also, until you solve the circular argument of: Barack Obama is not experienced enough to be President; Sarah Palin has the same qualifications as Barack Obama; Sarah Palin is ready to be Commander in Chief, I don’t want to hear anything else from you.
I’m sure you have something in the ol Republican handbook that still holds water. Roll that puppy out and ride it into Friday. Just believe in yourself. Man Up!
