There’s only so much you can say about this woman, who becomes every day more of a sad figure as she flits about the political landscape, adding a zinger line here,¬†accepting a party favor there, and generally adding to the evidence that there is nothing she would not do for money — or applause.

She wouldn’t last a half-hour in most of the playgrounds we all frequented and her¬†taunts and asides into the spitoon just all play to the basest in even the fringe. At least Pat Buchanan made you stop and think every once in a while.

This act just makes you wince and wish she wasn’t so photogenic so the cable guys would just lay off and let her go home and clean the fish.

did you vote for obama? be honest

WillardWhyte - August 12, 2010

I did, though I wondered about his inexperience and Chicago connections — and liked McCain as a man. Overall, I do not regret that vote at all. I think the major problem with him lies in his failure to take control of his party; he is still the “outsider” and has failed to tame the leadership on the hill, which bows to the fringe nutballs. As presidents, I think he and Bush are victims of transformative events — he by market crash/recession and Bush by 9/11/2001. Both events that changed the world in ways any president is powerless to control, mould or remedy — even though we expect them to pull a quick fix out of a hat. Neither had much of a chance to execute an agenda they spoke of as candidates.
My problem with Palin is that she is a liar, a manipulator and a for-personal-profit rabble-rouser. Her moral fiber is virtually nil, in my view. As an entertainer — a warm-up act? OK, good theater. But we need leadership, solutions and a strategy to rebuild. Way beyond her pay grade — even if she cared for anyone outside of herself.
