but i really think that he should not be the best person i’ve seen in the media, making the most salient points, about sarah palin’s candidacy. but here we are…

seriously.  she was talking about iran.  i listened 3 times to make absolutely certain i did not mishear.  i mean, after 8 years of hearing it wrong, sometimes i have to double check mentally.

 she would declare war on russia!  because that is such a good idea to just put on the table.  she is SO ready to be president.  when asked about foreign policy, she talks about alaska energy policy! (which, isn’t it interesting that they have a huge budget surplus, give every resident around $3000/year for living there, and take more money per capita from the federal government than any other state.  why take so much federal money when you have it anyway??  i thought you were against earmarks!)  

i just don’t get the feeling that she really has a full understanding of what she’s talking about.  she either needs to 1 – get a better understanding of the full scope of these issues or 2 – be a better speaker to get her points across in a convincing fashion.  of course, this is coming from the viewpoint of somebody who is already pretty skeptical about her, and wasn’t going to vote for McCain even before she ended up on the ticket.  Now, of course, I wouldn’t do it even at gunpoint.

a letter from somebody that knows sarah palin

fascinating!  this letter was published in the washington independent as a comment to a story.  The letter asks that it not be posted to a website, but since i found it on a website, i’m guessing that’s irrelevant by now.  this is a private citizen’s opinion.  what i find most fascinating is that it seems, at least according to some people, that it’s dangerous to speak out against Sarah Palin.  If I myself had not grown up in a small town, and been from generations of small-towners, I might scoff at that.  But if her “barracuda” reputation, and even half of the stories about rancorous firings of people who made her angry are true, I can see it.  But I don’t like the idea of electing somebody to public office (anywhere, but especially the 2nd highest in the US) who leaves people in their wake who seem to be AFRAID to speak out.


here’s the link, too:


Dear friends,

So many people have asked me about what I know about Sarah Palin in the 
last 2 days that I decided to write something up . . .

Basically, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton have only 2 things in 
common: their gender and their good looks. 🙂

You have my permission to forward this to your friends/email contacts 
with my name and email address attached, but please do not post it on 
any websites, as there are too many kooks out there . . .



I am a resident of Wasilla, Alaska. I have known Sarah since 1992. 
Everyone here knows Sarah, so it is nothing special to say we are on a 
first-name basis. Our children have attended the same schools. Her 
father was my child’s favorite substitute teacher. I also am on a 
first name basis with her parents and mother-in-law. I attended more 
City Council meetings during her administration than about 99% of the 
residents of the city.

She is enormously popular; in every way she’s like the most popular 
girl in middle school. Even men who think she is a poor choice and 
won’t vote for her can’t quit smiling when talking about her because 
she is a “babe”.

CNN: Tucker Bounds On Palin Foreign Policy Experience

i cannot believe this doesn’t have more viewing. this is the biggest load of crap i have seen in a long time. tucker dodges answering the question requesting a SINGLE example of Sarah Palin’s foreign policy experience for 4 minutes. and the McCain cancelled an interview with cnn. incredible.  because the odds of mccain dying in office are only like 50:50, right?  so….it’s not important anyway.

community organizing say WHAT?

Posted in Life in general with tags , , , on Wednesday 3 September 2008 by amanda

what’s with the bash on community organizing?  seriously, this woman stepped over the line in a whole new way with that totally inane remark.  community organizers are some of the hardest working people that i have ever met, and work on behalf of the community and “normal” people in the way that i have NEVER seen a politician do.  community organizers work ONLY for the people in the community.  they do not represent big business.

i am indignant beyond belief and PISSED AS HELL.  there’s a lot of other things in that speech that were wrong and stupid, but that is what is sticking with me right now.  what THE FUCK.
