You gotta be effin kiddin me #@!!?
So, John McCain picks a hottie, former beauty queen as his VP running mate in hopes of snagging some Hillary supporters. That might have been a good idea if this woman actually shared any of the political ideology of Hillary supporters. But she doesn't. She's pro-gun,which is great, because I am too. She's pro-home school, which is great, because I am too. But she is also RABIDLY PRO-LIFE and she loses me there. She lost Hillary's supporters way back there with pro-gun.
But her largest and most glaring drawback is that she lacks any hint of foreign policy experience, which is a big, big, HUGE deal because we are currently engaged in two wars in the Middle East and trying to start third and fourth ones (Iran and Russia/Georgia).
And what do the Republicans have to say about her lack of foreign policy experience?
"Uh...she lives next door to Russia and they haven't invaded Alaska."
No shit....that is what they are saying in her defense! I heard it all day yesterday on talking head cable news, then Dax Swatek said it, with a straight face, (which I can't even keep typing it) on FTR and then late night TV had a damn field day with it.
Well, I live next to a bank...does that make me bank President material? There are some homeless people who live near the White House in Washington D.C. Does that qualify them to be President? There are baggage handlers who live near the airport. Does that qualify them to fly your plane?
Why, hell no! And living near Russia doesn't qualify Sara Palin to be one heartbeat away from being the President of our country. That's one finger away from THE RED BUTTON!
This isn't coming from an Obama supporter nor a die-hard Democrat. This is coming from me, Loretta Nall, the small Libertarian voice in the political wilderness of Alabama politics.
It's LUNACY I tell you. L-U-N-A-C-Y! The next eight weeks of the national media raking her over the coals should be an interesting viewing experience. I almost feel sorry for her.
