Margaret, glad to hear that winter storm Jonas landed to your south. I hate to think of you being so north during the winter months. Of course, you don’t like my being so south come July so there’s that.
I guess we can both be thankful that we’re not in the Midwest where the Republicans have once again unleashed winter storm Sarah Palin on the unsuspecting citizens of Iowa. Good Lord but that woman is an idiot. I may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, but that dimwit burned out eight Christmases ago.
If you are thinking about voting for a Republican this year, you might want to consider that the party’s front runner enthusiastically welcomed her endorsement while the guy in second place happily assumed he had a monopoly on that crazy. I mean if your big catch is Sarah Palin, I have to question the size of your pole and the potency of your bait.
Everyone on the right side of the isle is courting born again Christians as if that second birth gives them a second vote. Exactly what is it about that second birth that produces so much self righteousness? Sarah promotes abstinence but is yet to have a grandchild conceived in wedlock. She accuses Obama of being too slow to go to war, but then blames Obama for her military son’s post traumatic stress syndrome. The woman actually has a college degree in communications and yet has no command whatsoever of the English language. And all of this qualifies her to endorse a presidential candidate how?
Here’s a little secret I offer to the Republican Party and its presidential candidates: Sarah Palin is an idiot. Financial conservatism and smaller government might have some merit. But what the hell does any of that have to do with loving war and hating immigrants? Not to mention demeaning women, persecuting gays, suppressing voters and lying about Planned Parenthood… Put all those things together and it quickly becomes clear that your party is so focused on born again Christians that you have forgotten those of us who were born once and got it right the first time.
If the Republican Party lets go of the hate and stops using government to overreach into my vagina, I might actually consider listening to what they have to say about smaller government.
Of course, if Sarah Palin is your spokesperson then you’ve lost me even before the conversation gets started. I mean it. Really.
