Pale In the Face Of Palin

Obama Critics Step Forward
Those who criticized Democratic Presidential nominee Barak Obama’s inexperience should be choking on their venison steaks when they take a look at Sarah Palin’s record and her lackluster background. First, she’s governor of Alaska for two years - a state that has a smaller population than my hometown of the Bronx (683,478 to 1,332,650 respectively). Palin is a lifetime National Rifle Association (NRA) member and a staunch supporter of banning gay marriage and the right of health benefits for domestic partners. If you’re still scratching your crotch thinking you could care less about those issues, then maybe you should also know that Palin opposes abortion – even when the pregnant female is the victim of rape. She also subscribes to abstinence-only education in schools, yet is presently grappling with her pregnant teen daughter. I guess you can say that there's some disagreement on her stand on the issues at home. When most mothers of a baby with down syndrome would consider spending more time with their little one, should she win, Palin would be forced to leave his care to nannies and the like, while she tends to the nation’s issues. Hey, this is 2008 and I don’t believe that any woman should have to choose between her career and her family, but it seems that there are plenty of issues in the Palin household already. If you’re wondering what may have prepared Palin for the office of the President of the U.S. look no further than to her other state’s politicians – NOT ONE Alaskan politico has been named to any major Presidential ticket in history – EVER! She’s not only breaking new ground as first-woman on a Republican Presidential ticket, but also the first Alaskan. She does have a lighter side though, she admits to experimenting with marijuana during a period of time when Alaska decriminalized the possession of the drug. She later said that she didn’t really like it – uh, yeah, I didn’t either girl. I’m not quite sure, but I’m trying to sort out how her second place runner up title at the Miss Alaska Pageant and her win as Miss Congeniality in the same competition helped build that all-important political resume. She can even call sporting events with the boys club, thanks to her experience as a sports reporter in Anchorage. All to say, Palin’s resume lacks some political weight. So ask yourself, where are those pesky little Obama critics now?

On Blast
It’s good to pay close attention to both sides – the Democrats and the Republicans – to see where the candidates stand on the issues that matter. Also, it’s important to go with the candidate that has the preparation to act under fire. Pick one issue that matters to you and identify how the opposing team has actually benefited or championed your cause.

Keep passin' the open windows...

your from the bx i'm from queens lol... thanks for the added facts about palin...I think she was chosen as a straight political move and McCain didn't do his research on her.. there investigating her in Alaska for abuse of power as well...I think she is toooo to the right in her views... I don't think she can be an effective president if McCain is unable to fulfill his duties if something(god forbid) happened to him if he gets elected into office she will take over... he really took a gamble electing her as his running mate...

I am a conspiracy theorist....I think McCain and the GOP picked Palin like a peck of pickled peppers because whe they steal the election this time, they are going to claim that everyone who would have voted for Hilary, voted for the McCain/Palin ticket because they wanted a woman in the White House. I dread the conspiracy visions that come to my head sometimes, that one just dawned on me today...its a trick. And the DEVILS a LIAR...

The funniest line was, "I didn't either girl."

Hilarious.

Classic and true to Cocoa Rican form! I love it.

what's worse than her inexperience is her record on matters that she campaigned for to get elected.

Environmentalist - then she started pushing for off shore drilling

Education - then she started banning books and pushing creationism be taught in schools

Bridge to Nowhere - then distancing herself from it.

Ol' girl can't keep it real.
