It was mentioned on the Daily Show tonight that Joe Plummer has now taken part in more interviews than Sarah Palin. That’s fun to think about. Hopefully, the economic woes of Wasilla help to paint a truthful picture of her administrative skills to a nation in an economic crisis. The economy is behaving like a spoiled child that she would most likely take to Disneyland on the taxpayer’s dime. I’m on vacation back home in California. People are listening to the whispers beyond the campaign lines. Hopefully, that sentiment is spreading in other states as well.
This is pretty remarkable stuff. The campaign to sell Palin to the public as VP candidate, including her statements at rallies, highlights the word “conservative” in fiscal and social contexts. It’s in practically every other sentence.
Moreover, the film reveals that she simply does not consider consequences for her decisions. She decides and acts and then spends time and someone else’s money to overcome the obstacles that she has created or should have considered. And her most costly decisions result from being self-aggrandizing.
That’s not being a maverick, that’s being irresponsible, headstrong, and egocentric. Sort of like Dick Cheney, and we know what he did…
Answer: No, this isn’t getting out–at least here in DC. But sadly, no one really cares. Does anyone actually believe–after 8 years of enormous Republican budget deficits–that a McCain/Palin administration would have a balanced budget? Please!
Palin has told so many lies (check Andrew Sullivan’s blog–http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/– for details), some a lot bigger than this one, that this would get just get lost anyway.
And honestly, this pales in importance to the kind of hate-mongering that she is spearheading for the McCain campaign. That’s what really concerns me.
