Palin Envy

Posted in biden, clinton, main stream media, obama, palin, politics by Eugene Podrazik on September 12, 2008

It’s coming out of the mouth of Biden himself.  He’s flat out admitted that Hill would have been a better choice for veep. I guess if you’re buried and flattened by the Palin steamroller, you’ll do anything for publicity. Seriously, he’d so fallen off the media radar in the last week or so that I thought his picture was going to wind up on the side of a milk carton. Now more speculation of dumping Biden from the ticket for Hill or perhaps another woman politician. And, that’s not the first time that little story’s come up. Rush Limbaugh made mention of such rumors even before the GOP convention died down.

What is so funny about this will be the Ahab-like search for the liberal Sarah Palin by the Democrats. This going to be like the search for the liberal Rush Limbaugh that ended in the Air America/Al Franken debacle. In their frustration, the Democrats are calling for the restoration of the “fairness doctrine” to silence Rush.

Maybe the Democrats can have the Palin fairness doctrine. You can’t run a candidate like Palin unless the opposition can find a similarly dynamic woman with an equal number of kids and similar marksmanship bona fides.

The search for the liberal Palin will be in vain of course. Because Palin, unfettered by political correctness, unfettered by the compound mentality, unfettered by the abject fear of being banished from the bi-coastal social A-list, simply lived her life according to her best lights. Such women do not exist in liberal land.

Frankly, the novelty of a woman handling a gun with skill is not news in huge swaths of middle America. Likewise, a woman being active in the PTA, her church, on the local city council, serving as mayor are again, for most of middle America unremarkable. It was the MSM, swooning over these things that magnified them to the tsumni that is now washing away the Obama campaign. I pass over the inherent patronizing in such MSM coverage that many women find insulting. 

It only gets better (or worse) for Barry and Hill. By the time 2012 rolls around, both Barry and Hill are going to be so yesterday in the Democratic rush to find the this liberal Palin. The too desiccated Governor Sebelius won’t make the cut either.

In any event, Biden’s not going to last beyond October because (from Palin Facts):

         “Sarah Palin’s finishing move in the VP debate will be pulling Biden’s

       still beating heart from his chest & taking a bite.”

    I was excited about the possibility of McCain winning, and excited about him choosing a female running mate. But I gotta say I’m disappointed and disturbed. Reading about Palin is disturbing. She is so overtly hypocritical and uninformed and dishonest that I shudder to think what would happen to this country if McCain died. She seems like that mean girl in high school who grew up to be a ruthless woman who would stop at nothing to get what she wants. She puts her own ambitions ahead of her own children, which I find very disturbing. Her record and experience in politics is not good. She was mayor of what anyone in America would call a podunk town (around 5000 at the time) that was not in debt when she took office and had over 22million in debt when she left. She stood up in front of the country at the RNC and lied about the “Bridge to Nowhere” and continues to lie about it. She was governor of a state with around 650,000 people (fewer people than many of the country’s larger cities). And she belonged to an organization that was trying to get Alaska to secede from the USA. How can she now say she wants to serve a country she very recently exhibited a desire NOT to be a part of? She is under investigation for corruption. There is so much scandal revolving around this woman I think McCain really blew it.

    I’m not going to try to refute point by point, except to say that a lot of this stuff has been circulating and a lot has already been debunked.

    Is Palin tough. You bet. Presidential politics ain’t bean bag. And, if the last presidential elections hold up, with 51/49 percent voter split any victor, by default the victor will step on half of the electorate’s toes.

    On the other hand, if she’s half as bad as the MSM cracks her up to be, I find it hard to believe that she would have made it to the governor’s mansion.

    Finally, I know of another state with a smaller population than Alaska–Vermont. No one seemed to think that disqualified Governor Dean from the presidency.
