Oh Ironies Abound

GOP rhetoric as told by Sarah Palin while being interviewed by Charlie Gibson:

“…it is about putting government back on the side of the people…”

Really? By lining up for earmarks and then lying about it later? By being vindictive and misusing her paltry power for personal reasons and lying about it later? Her record isn’t matching her rhetoric in the least. She’s giving the current president a run for his money with baldfaced lies. Just what the country needs.

John McCain on Sarah Palin:

“…Energy. She knows more about energy than probably anyone else in the United States of America….”

And this circus of absurdity is meant to make people vote for a McCain/Palin ticket? Are you serious?

The fundamentalist christian voice in the U.S. has had eight years to show their leadership skills. They blew it.

To wit: get everybody riled up over stupid stuff and then slowly and surely erode the constitution.

As a country, the United States should have learned that fundamentalists make for horrible leaders. They routinely pick the wrong people for any number of jobs and seek to bring out the worst in human nature. They give the incompetent power and position where none is warranted. They fail when people depend on them. I don’t care what your political views are if you can’t honestly assess the landscape: McCain chose the wrong person to run so that he could pander to the very element that needs to be run out of Washington D.C.
