Really, John McCain Really?
When I woke up Friday morning, I wanted to revel in the
History was Barack Obama. The night before, I gazed at the television screen
proudly as he accepted the Democratic Nomination for President of the United States of America.
The only problem is, when I finally got up from my slumber, I
was irritated into a splitting headache by Republican John McCain.
This guy strategically decides to announce his running mate
the day after Baracks landmark speech. But thats not what bothered me. It is
who he picked.
McCain introduced first-term Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his
vice presidential running mate early morning Friday, an act of contempt in my
“She’s exactly who I need. She’s exactly who this
country needs to help me fight the same old Washington politics of ‘Me first and country
second,’ ” McCain said.
Really, McCain Really?
I know you are fond of younger women, so perhaps this is
what you need, but is this truly what the country needs?
You picked a 44-year-old, inexperienced a** mother of five,
Tina Fey-looking, gun-toting, moose-skinning Alaskan for the vice presidency of
the United States.
So, what you have given America is a potentially disastrous
quandary an apocalyptic quagmire if you will.
You are a 72-year-old damaged war hero running for president
and opt for a younger-less-experienced-and-less-inspirational-than-Barack vice
presidential aspirant. I dont think you drank any of the super serum that
powered Captain America
so it is possible that you could die in office. You might have drank some of
drank making political missteps like this.
Furthermore, analysts say that U.S. presidents age about seven
years faster than the rest of us due to the rigors of the gig. So, in theory,
your senior tail could be exactly “100 years old” at the end of a four year term in
office. (This doesnt take into consideration a whole eight year possibility)
The thought of having a 44-to-48 year old first-term governor
is as scarier than driving high with DMX and Amy Winehouse. You had cancer four
times, my brother! Youre scaring the mess out of me.
So, is that was America needs or just you?
You seem to think you have tapped into the presumed disgusted
and disenchanted legions of females that didnt see their dreams come to
fruition. Do you think this relative unknown is the republican Hillary Rodam
Clinton? I think she is the Bizzarro Hillary her opposite! Clue: this lady isnt
a Clinton or Geraldine Ferraro crazy a** either.
There are so many questions that I have of you. Here are a few.
You just met your pal Palin in February. What did she do to
impress you so much in six months to bestow her with such an honor? I feel you
have truly insulted females all over the nation by suggesting that this woman
represents some quantum leap of progress. Hillary Clinton is a leap of
progress, as was Geraldine, even though I cannot stand her.
Another question: Did you just scream, Hail, Mary! and throw Sarah
Palins fairly unknown name out there like, I hope American goes for this crazy
s**t in November, because I dont know what else to do with this Obama dude. Or
was it, Women (including women that opposed just about everything else Palin stands for) are just gonna vote for her because she is a woman! Yay! They
I love the strength of the female spirit, but I have to ask
you another pertinent question.
Not seem sexist, but how does a self described hockey mom
from Alaska function
in a vice-presidential or presidential capacity? She considered herself a longshot for
the VP and will contend with balancing five kids, a husband, Iraq, Iran, and, oh yeah, turning America around.
Hey, Micckey, Did you read what I read from the Associated Press? If not, check it:
Alaska‘s former public safety director says he was
fired in July by Palin after he refused to dismiss the governor’s former
brother-in-law, who had been accused of making threats during a messy custody
batle with Palin’s sister. A state probe of the allegation is due to be
completed a week before the general election.
Hillary Clinton left 18 million cracks in the glass ceiling,
my dude? You let her say that to the ladies on your big day?
Really, McCain Really?
I dont know what you all are trying to pull, but get it
Cut this mess out right now and let Chi-town Obama and Delaware
Biden win and you and Pal get out of the way of this movement.
You are going to get us all killed or run American into the
ground worse than we already are with these nutty hijinks!
No way, no how No McCain! (Word to Hillary.)
Just NO.Epilogue: I still haven’t forgiven the real Tina Fey for that “b***h is the new Black” mess so I’m not rockin’ with the look-a-like.
