About 45 minutes from my living room, the Republicans are whooping it up over Sarah Palin's speech.
But I just can't watch - it's not good for my health. Either I'll urp up all over the sofa, or I'll have a stroke.
I actually pity the Republicans -they have no choice but to publicly fawn all over this horrendous woman. They all have to act like she's just the best thing since penicillin and not a wretched example of blowhard rhetoric gone insane and horribly, horribly wrong. And all that glorious praise seems a bit strained, doesn't it? I think some are a bit more than a little embarrassed. But what can they do? Criticize? In an election year? They would have preferred a straight-up white guy they can understand like Tim Pawlenty or Mitt Romney but instead got Caribou Barbie! (I totally stole that name from another blog, can't remember who, but you know who you are. )
Did you see the statistics that the RNC is "slightly less diverse than in the past". Only because Ray Charles died. Never underestimate the power of large groups of stupid white people.
I'm a soccer Mom, I've read some books, I'm a college graduate, I served on our community Park Board in a town of 19,000 thank-you-very-much, I have an IQ of 130, and my teens are NOT pregnant. Sign me up McCrusty! I'm ready to serve as VP!
