Sarah Palin. A common joke nowadays, an easy laugh. I think she was destined to this, as she is obviously totally unfit to be anywhere near the White House. Most people agree that, given her record, pairing her to John McCain pretty much gave the oval office to Obama. But was this unintentional? In my opinion, not at all.
I noticed something else to. Have you heard her say "Media Elite"? I think she was referencing a very real situation, but because of her public appearance (which is probably not a false appearance), it seems like a crazy idea. What an excellent way to debunk something.
I'm not trying to support nor defame Palin here, because honestly I can't really gather an opinion on her. Please don't blame me for taking a side. Whatever "side" you are on, I want you to analyze her. I think she is a very obvious display of how the government works and the way it can get the results it wants.
-Placing her with John McCain, given her reputation, made Obama an easy win.
-Again, given her reputation, whatever she says can easily be discredited, so if you hand her something important to say you can easily draw attention away from it.
Those are two very clear points, but I just think she is a good example of how things can be manipulated.

I think the real problem was McCain, not her. Or the fact that any Repub they stuck in there was destined not to win cause of W....If anything I think she gained votes.

I predict that when she starts losing her appeal, we all will have the opportunity to see Palin grace the pages of Penthouse magazine.

I hope next election the polling site has a step stool so I can climb up and slap my penis on the board to select a candidate. That would be so cool to vote with my penis!!
Meanwhile, my buddy, Earl, will ask for the booth to be moved back a bit.
When I saw Sarah Palin was chosen to be John McCain's running mate, I said, "WTF? Is he trying to lose?"
I guess he was.
