Sarah's blaze of glory.. who is to blame?

This whole Sarah Palin thing irks the hell out of me and not for the reasons you would think. All of a sudden I find myself feeling sorry for her and the attention paid to her over the last few months and it bothers the hell of out of me to feel sorry for the woman…

I do not blame the MSM or Dave Letterman though for the attention paid to her though… I blame Bush..

huh?

oops, sorry.. after 8 years it’s just a force of habit!

But seriously, I blame John McCain and Sarah Palin’s hubris.

I cannot for the life of me fathom the thought process that went through John McCain’s heads and ended up producing the statement “I choose Sarah Palin as my Vice Presidential running mate”… and the thoughts that must have gone through his head saying “..and no body will question who she is, where she comes from,her political history,her family dirt,her sanity..or mine, because she just so darn pretty”

On what planet did either of them really think an absolute 100% no name… could run, with an amazing chance at success at becoming the 1st woman Vice President.. and not a single person in the world wouldn’t say.. “Hey, who’s the new girl?”

Mike was right when he said “The amount of poor and incorrect information on this woman is frankly incredible.” Of course he‘s talking about  me, Howie and the MSM for this.. but it was not us who thrust this already, damaged flower onto the open market and demanded that she be accepted as leader of our country in the event of a Presidential disaster all because she and John McCain said so. As if that wasn’t enough, then she opened her mouth and we truly had reasons to fear.

But, were we ‘unfair’ to her.. or were her expectation of unconditional acceptance  to blame for the eventual melt-down. .. yeah, I don’t care what planet your from.. No one term govenor of an extremely large state, who ran for VP and almost won, can decide to quit their office with 2 years left in her term.. and not be seen as the antithesis of a leader on a Presidential scale. When stared down by what she calls an unfair Mainstream media, she blinked.. and blinked hard. What happens during the next cuban missle crisis while she’s President? So yes, it was a melt down.

But are we to blame or does she have a major stake in that arena?

In a campaign where even the Democratic leader’s birth certificate and religion was being eviscerated on television,blogs,papers ,pundits and me all across the land on and hourly basis.. What gave Palin or McCain the idea that she could be launched on the Presidential landscape 6 weeks before the election.. and no one would want to know who the fuck she was? Oh My God, Sotomayor’s entire adult life going back decades are being vetted before we can even have the debate as to whether we should appoint her to the Supreme Court, but we were just supposed to say “Oh, Sarah Palin.. yeah, Ok.. sure-we don’t really need to know jack-shit about the person who will be a heartbeat away from the Presidency”

No, I do not find the MSM as the culprit for all her troubles.. In fact, I think the MSM should be awarded a medal for weeding out a person who was not only unprepared for the spot-light.. but also  exquisitely unprepared for the pressure that would come with the office she was asking to be trusted with.  Had she actually been elected.. well, that’s a nightmare that I am glad I don’t have to witness…

Sarah Palin only has Sarah Palin and John McCain to blame for her larger than life launch onto the full court world press to her eventually crashing and burning. It was not a pretty launch on to the political field to begin with and it was bound to be an even uglier crash.

The Mainstream media did it’s job this time.. they did it at an breakneck pace to be sure.. but only because they were forced to by two people who thought they could sneak an incompetent by because maybe this country wasn’t as ready for a black man named Hussein as their opponents thought.

    Ya know…for me, the brakes screeched when the vid of her getting cleansed of any evil spirits that might inhabit her being, by a witch doctor hunting preacher hit the net. They weren’t up long, but long enough.

    I found it particularly odd that people seemed upset that an equal amount of ire wasn’t had by those who heard and saw Rev. Wright’s tirades.

    To me, there was no similarity or comparison.

    One was a person spewing anger and resentment towards the United States, which as far as I know, is allowed…and the other, was a person letting a preacher expel *demons* and *negative spirits* from their body. Not symbolically, but *literally*. That stopped me in my tracks.

    my stop stick was the video of her speaking at the AIP’s annual benefit.. it wasn’t so much of her speaking there as it was how fast it was deleted and how fast the woman who runs the AIP was “shut up” from commenting on Palin and Hubby’s involvement..

    if anything.. the McCain emails about the whole affair prove that not only did she feel like she could just lie her way out of things.. but that she felt McCain’s ppl should be happy to help her..

    kinda what he bro-in-law said if you think about it…not that he wasn’t a scum bag.. but scum-bag or not, she overstepped her boundaries out of some sense of ‘entitlement’…

    Now Levi the almost-made-it-to-the-family-in-law says Sarah did it for the money.

    Duh.

    She’s already pimped her kids for all it’s worth, why not whore herself out for a little cash?

    Well we did elect a one term senator who started running for another job almost as soon as was elected, while still drawing a paycheck for the first job he barely had the time to do after he announced.

    As I predicted, you can’t quit her. I doubt this will be your last blog on her either. Amazing that you are congratulating the MSM for putting out such an incredible amount of incorrect information, almost as if they had an agenda…
