Sarah Palin is NOT like me

I'm hearing a lot of hogwash about Sarah Palin's popularity being based on the fact that "she's just like us". Get those pcs writing letters to the editor folks - we have to clear up this crazy misunderstanding.

America! Repeat after me:
I'm not wealthy
I don't wear $600 eyeglass frames.
I don't want to ban books.
I dont make rape victims pay for their assault
I don't fire people who don't agree with me
I don't fire people for supporting my opposition in an election
I don't lie, and lie, and lie, and lie
I don't favor pork and pet projects
I don't ditch my kids for my own ambitions
I don't force teenagers to get married
I don't parade my kids around for political gain
I don't support Alaskan plans to secede from the United States
I don't believe the Iraq war is a mission from God
I don't stay in my own home while charging the state for travel expenses
I don't mock community organizers, in fact I cherish them
I actually think the separation of church and state is a PRETTY GOOD IDEA! To quote Mrs. Palin "If it was good enough for the Founding Fathers, it's good enough for me!"
I know the Founding Fathers did NOT write the Pledge of Alligiance and they sure as hell didn't enter the phrase "under God".
I know that living across the Bering Strait from Russia doesn't give anyone foreign relations experience anymore than standing in a Jiffy Lube imparts automotive repair skills.

Amen, a million times over. I continue to be absolutely baffled, more so than I have ever been regarding any other political candidate, about how anyone could possibly think she is an appropriate VP candidate. Even if one puts aside her extreme, conservative views, how can one justify her utter lack of readiness? How can anyone be comfortable with the idea that someone who doesn't know what the Bush doctrine is could potentially end up as our President, if something happened to McCain? She--and our country--would be a laughing-stock among other world leaders. That's just what this country needs.

I have actually tried that Jiffy Lube osmosis idea....think of the money it could save!

Great post, I will share!

I marvel at how you have put it all together for us in this great post. Yes, absolutely! You did it.

They thought she'd be our candidate simply because she's female?
--Nah, ya gotta be kiddin' me.

Democracy is all about average citizens supporting and electing WAY ABOVE AVERAGE leaders.

The McCain/Palin ticket is just simply embarrassing and would be outright funny if it were fiction, but right now, it's just plain scary.

YOU are amazing- I think you would make a great VP, hey forget that - a great Pres, but who needs the aggravation?

She is not like too many people I know and even if she were, that is no reason to vote for someone.

I'm glad you posted that, because I was starting to get the two of you confused.

Yep, she's not like me. Except for firing people I didn't like. If I ever had a job with any kind of authority, I don't know if I could resist that one. I was the boss once, but since I didn't have any employees all I could really do was look daggers at the UP guy when he was late. Couldn't fire him, though.
