Stupidest Thing I Heard All Day…

     Seriously, is it safe to be conservative?

     I mean, last night, standing in the checkout line, an upper-middle-aged woman remarked about “all the books” about the presidential candidates.

     “There are like fifteen for Obama, one for that racist and three for that whore.”

     I looked at her out of the corner of my eye, but not enough she would have noticed. 

     “And I’m voting for Obama, not that stupid whore!” she continued.

     Ummm … I think her logic was faulty …

     Didn’t she mean that she wasn’t going to vote for “that stupid racist?”

     “You’d have to be a f#$*ing idiot to vote for that bitch!”

     Wow … Well, I actually agreed that you’d have to be an idiot to vote for any “bitch” in this election, considering it’s actually two men running…

     Looks some liberals don’t even know who’s the front runner any more…

     I’m a little confused by all the “Vice President” bashing, anyway.  Back in 1991 and 1995, nobody liked Al Gore, either.  Clinton supporters would always be first to let everyone know, “It’s not like Gore is gonna be President, anyway!  Who cares?”

     So why does Palin matter so much now that the tables are turned?

     One word: asshats.

    Not to take a side, since the mere thought of trying to look rationally at politics makes me cringe, but I can see why people are looking so critically at Palin. She was obviously a hasty pick by the McCain camp that was made very soon after Hillary Clinton conceded the nomination. If you remember, the press at the time was harping on about how polls showed that many Clinton supporters did not want to vote for Obama. Palin was an attempt to steal some of those former Hillary fanatics, though it is clear that there was very little background research done on her.

    The issue is whether Palin can handle a presidency (though one can question Obama’s experience in the same light) in the event that John McCain is unable to complete his term. Quite frankly, John McCain is old. Your health can take a turn for the worst pretty quickly at that age. Compounding the issue is the fact that the McCain camp did not want to release his health records, leading one to speculate that he may not be as healthy as a mule. Unfortunately, Palin has repeatedly made herself look rather unintelligent along the campaign trail, which probably wouldn’t be looked at as critically if she wasn’t a woman, an outside political player, and the running mate of a very old man.

    Regardless, politics is just a game to the politicians. You can’t climb the party ranks if all of your views don’t conform to those of the party, thus eliminating the chance of us ever having a president with a mind of his (or her) own. Perhaps someday the political environment will change, but I believe the chance is slim.

    Does no one remember the multiple sinus surgeries, multiple broken bones and heart issues? He wasn’t healthy either, and everyone kept saying, “Gore is irrelevant — he’s only a VP!”

    What’s really sick is that all of these people who were complaining about Woman Bashing & Sexism when Hillary was up are A) now bashing Palin, and B) now flipping to Obama, even though they accused him of Woman Bashing & Sexism.

    And should I even mention…. The “too old” argument? The “too unhealthy” argument? So apparently, those laws that Democrats made to protect people from discrimination based on Age and Disability are okay to break as long as the tables are turned, huh?

    Horse shit and double speak.

    Calm down. I am most certainly not a democrat. I was simply analyzing the current situation and popular sentiments. Yes, 90% of people are idiots and flipflop on their ideals depending on what best suits them at the moment. The bottom line is that I can look at McCain’s age critically because I never supported the removal of age and health as a factor of employment. Hell, I wasn’t even old enough to understand what was going on in the ’92 and ’96.

    I don’t favor one side or the other. My views fall on both sides of the fence and there will never be a president who can accurately represent me. The past examples you use of left wing hypocrisy are irrelevant to the issue of whether Palin would make a good interim president if McCain were to drop dead. While they reflect on many of the people who are looking at the issue, they don’t reflect all. Don’t judge my analysis of the current situation based on the views held by people who are sure of their candidate as soon as the party ticket is confirmed.
