So the Bitch is Tolerant?

So the Bitch is Tolerant?
After watching the Vice Presidential Debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin last night, I was in awe at how ignorant Palin really is and how out of touch with the issues she appears. I shuddered to think that, if elected, a woman who managed to fast-talk herself up the ladder of a state with a population a smidgen larger than ONE municipality on the small island of Puerto Rico, would be charged with running these United States. Her interview with Katie Couric – heavily spun on all media outlets – highlighted how truly out-of-touch Palin really is. Unable to quote any Supreme Court legislation that has passed – well, outside of Roe v. Wade.; unable to identify definitive examples of her ticket’s stand on foreign policy; and worst of all – unable to identify the very publications that she reads on a regular basis, that keep her informed of the issues. That aside, the woman has spunk; well, that and apparently an uncanny ability to stick to the script. I’d say she’d make a better candidate for lead actress on a revamped version of NBC’s West Wing, than the real-life White House. Last night as she asserted her tough stand on issues within her 670,000-some-odd constituents, I couldn’t help but wonder if anybody cared that she was the equivalent of having your office janitor coordinate the clean-up for the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Best of all, was when she was questioned about gay rights and the right to marry. Now, in fairness, Biden also mentioned that his ticket is AGAINST gay marriage, but this two-bit, former runner-up beauty queen with the knocked-up-‘fuck-abstinence’-hookah-of-a-teenage-daughter went on to say that her ticket is “tolerant” of gays. TOLERANT? Let me put this in perspective for you folks; if I told you there are two-or-three women in my office and we’re extremely “tolerant” of them, people would be in an uproar. Yes, I believe in tolerance, but this is 2008. I need a Presidential ticket that is sensitive to the issue of diversity and believes in EQUAL rights for ALL Americans; not a ticket that is “tolerant” to my ‘kind’. It’s one thing to not support gay marriage, but to listen to this back-woods, script-reading ditz say that she isn’t a Washington insider and speak of it with the zeal of someone who believes this to be a positive point on her resume had me think-and-rethink the desire to toss my Blackberry at my television screen. Look, it’s clear Obama doesn’t have the Washington experience of say, a Joe Biden, but he does have SOME Washington experience and yes, Obama may be a bit green on foreign policy issues, but he chose a candidate that compliments his ticket. When I look at the McCain-Palin ticket I see the old-and-blind leading the aggressive-and- ignorant. This is a new America. An America that is rich in diversity and hurting from mismanagement of our tax dollars; an America that is ready to reach across the aisle to make REAL changes to the American economy; an America that is ready to repair its reputation abroad; and finally, an America that has enough sense to see through the glamour, glitz and hoopla of a ticket that is running on yesterday’s values, yesterday’s views and yesterday’s idea of equality – I think they’re calling it “tolerance”?

On Blast
In your view, what is the core difference between being “accepting “of diversity and being “tolerant” of it?


Keep passin’ the open windows…

I am tired of all the b.s..

When she said McCain was staying in Iraq so we can help them secure a democratic society and build schools, I wanted to throw MY blackberry at the TV. We need schools built HERE, FCUK the Iraqi's...you motherfathers better take care of my AMERICAN children before you go building schools for kids in a country that we invaded without a DECLARATION OF WAR...a country that DOESNT WANT US THERE except to increase their funding. They have 17 Billion dollars available meanwhile we just had to have a 700 Billion dollar bailout plan written and passed. I mean, lets stop this bs and take care of our own, for God's sake.....

While she is a good orator (I am sure she has put her mouth to use to get to where she is), I wantred to slap her around when Biden choked up about knowing what its like to be a single parents and having to work and leave your kids, not knowing if your child will live or die in the hospital...man, I started crying and then I wanted to rip Palin's head off...

Whatever man. I cannot tolerate anymore BS...I could care less what your color, gender or orientation is, I just cannot tolerate the BS another minute.

when you accept things it no longer bothers you. There is no longer an issue with it. If you tolerate, you are only saving face and bearing it for a moment.

LoL don't throw your blackberry@ caspar608.

You'd think America had no schools reading your comment. We don't need schools built here. We need the children to GO to the fucking schools! And I agree with you on the 700 B. I totally disagreed with that bill, with or w/out the PORK it ended up having in it.

Socialism is on the move in this country and it's a scary sight to watch...

~Damnit!

I watched the debate as well. I promised String Bean that if the Palin/McCain ticket won the election I would leave non-profit work. If people are stupid enough to fall in line for those two idiots then I am out of my league trying to help better their society. I had might as well go into the private sector where I could make money off of their gullibility.

I mean to think that she could use tolerant and there isn't a backlash. Tolerant as in I merely stomach it, but see no value, no benefit in the life of someone different from me. I'm going to start walking around telling Christians that I am merely tolerant of their beliefs.

And, as far as socialism being on the move *looks up* social democracies in Europeans countries have afforded their citizens standards of living and great progress that the raw unhibited capitalism of America could never. Look at where that kind of economic dogmatic bs has landed you people now.

The girls get on my nerves chile...

Oh dog gonnit there you go again Joey...(Lil Pailin humor there lol)

Amazingly enough, these European countries which you reference have been around for how long yet and still in America's short history we've become the strongest nation that's ever existed on the face of this planet. Even in our WORST times our system of capitalism is better than ANY socialist or communist system! The saddest thing is that the very people that are attempting to destroy this country are the same people lining their damn pockets off of capitalism! Do your research and follow the money baby boy.

LoL@ tha girls get on your nerves. Drink some tea babe. You'll be aiight.

oNe!

~Damnit!
