Palin for President?

Why not?

Face it, love her or hate her.. she grabs the spotlight wherever she is. She has the uncanny ability to suck all the buzz out of any room she enters no matter how glamorous, powerful,beautiful, well-known and well-loved the others in the room are and bring it into herself. This could be used for the benefit of this country if another ‘Cuban Missile Crisis‘ were to happen. The other side, knowing she isn’t afraid to bomb the shit out of anyone because of her almost insane belief in herself and her righteousness, would acquiesce to any demand she proffered.
She’s already faced down Big Oil and won.. and this is a feat not to be taken lightly. This is also an accomplishment I’d like to see on a National level. Think about this, because of Palin’s no-holds-barred personality, every citizen in Alaska in 2008 received $1200 for help with the rising gas prices AND $2000 more for the use of their lands and the oil in the state. This was all accomplished through a tax increase on the oil companies, a type of ‘windfall tax’ and why not? No one made the oil in the ground and no one owns it either.. because EVERYONE owns it. The oil that is offshore in my state is just as much mine as it is Exxon-Mobiles. They of course have the resources to get the oil,refine it and sell it but they don’t have ownership anymore than I do.

The idea that a Republican would go at Big Oil this is, in today’s atmosphere, unheard of, but even back when she was Governor it was still something that was severely frowned upon. Jimmy Carter tried it, Newt voted for it,only to have it repealed in 1980.. His wasn’t the same as hers, what she had going for her is that Alaskans have a Constitutional ownership of their lands and it’s resources, so in essence “As resource owners, Alaskans literally had a “working interest” in energy exploration and development.”

Think about the benefits of this for a minute. Today oil companies who rape the land made a “combined total profit of $137 billion, which is a new record,”. Every time gas prices go up a penny, these companies pocket another $200 million in quarterly profits. $137 BILLION DOLLARS! Off a resource they did not make, can not replace and do not have ownership of anymore than you or I.

Sarah had the right idea, why not make the American people “resource owners” with a “working interest” in all energy exploration and development? Why not use the funds to start a basic healthcare plan for every person in this country. I’m not talking about limitless healthcare, but a basic level that all humans deserve. Face it people, we’re the only civilized country who attaches health care to employment.. and with all the unemployment today, this has devastating affects on our citizens and this country. We deserve to have atleast a basic safety net, like say… Cuba. Yes, even Cubans have healthcare..

It’s a radical idea, Sarah Palin as Mrs. President… but these times call for a radical solution. So why not her? She once showed intelligence, strength and a care for her fellow Alaskans and went to the mat for them and won! Who’s to say she can’t or won’t do it for all Americans.

Another reason to consider Palin for President? Three words “Willard ‘Mitt’ Romney”.

C’mon people, really? Mitt Romney as President is a better option than Sarah Palin? No way! Mitt, unfortunately, goes whichever way the breeze blows him. He’s a Charlie Crist without the tan. Besides that, Mitt’s just odd. There’s really no other way to put it, he’s Odd. I don’t know if he’s this way because he’s trying to be something that he isn’t, a regular guy, or if he’s just…. ya know.. odd. Whatever it is, there isn’t a single supporter of his out there that has said they think he would be able to stare down another Nikita Khruschev. Palin on the other hand? Not only could she stare him down and win, she would do it in a New York minute because she has that obscene belief in her righteousness..The idea that Mitt could even stare down a Somali pirate, much less an Assad or Putin is fantasy.. and frankly, the way things over there are going now? It’s not a fantasy I want any part of.

“Oh Gosh.. I just.. golly.. I don’t know..

Gee, I just don’t think you should kill so many people Mr. A-sad.

I mean, shucks they aren’t varmints’

Face people, in the GOP field there’s only one option… Sarah Palin. She’s beautiful. She’s ballsy. She’s got confidence coming out of her Wasilla. What’s the worst that could happen? Economic collapse? Got it! Job meltdown? Have it! Slow death of personal freedoms? Living it right now. No healthcare? HaHa-HaHa and?

See, there’s nothing she can really fuck up. What? Nuclear war? We’d be the ones left standing. Beside that, it wouldn’t ever come to that, I already said she’d go balls out to defend her righteousness and her opponent would know this about her and back-down faster than Chris Christie can eat a box of Dunkin Donuts.

The only drawback to a Palin presidency is her children.. specifically Bristol. There is already a generation of teen girls out there just waiting to get knocked up so they can be on MTV. Bristol as ‘1st daughter’ would be such a horrible role model for these girls that Sarah would have to have her married off to someone before taking office. I’m sorry that that sounds as horrible as it does, but it’s the truth. Bristol shouldn’t be a role model, she didn’t ask to be, but she’s in the lime light with all her “Dancing” and now a reality show..she needs to think about herself on the larger level of things and no matter how beautiful a baby is, most teens don’t have the opportunities that she did..and those teens don’t know that. Bristol could help hundreds of  teens focus on Family by marrying her ‘baby-daddy’ instead of having multiple ‘baby daddy’ like so many kids do today.

Sarah could do it.

Run, Sarah, Run!

    Well done!

    As to the bet (I bet ekg that Palin would NOT be the Republican nominee this year), I hadn’t forgotten about it, however I was dutifully waiting until the actual convention to re-remind you of our wager to make sure things were all legal and official, but it looks like you decided to go ahead and concede early. You’re not taking any chances in going ahead and conceding defeat. I imagine even the most fevered, Palin-obsessed stalker (yes, I’m talking to you Andrew Sullivan!) has given up by now on the hope (yes it was a hope/fantasy) that Palin would ride into the convention center in Tampa on a snowmobile, bound up the stage, push Romney off the edge and shout, “I’m takin’ what’s mine, you betcha!”

    But remarkably you thought a scenario similar to this was entirely possible, hence the poorly considered bet. You used to be a much better political analyst than this. A few years ago, I doubt you would have seriously entertained this possibility, but there is something about her that drives you liberals crazy! You can’t think clearly when she’s around and is the topic of conversation, and unfortunately she has weighted on your minds a lot since September 2008. She seems to crowd out analytical thinking and turns the emotion chip to red hot with overuse. Imagine how the Star Wars universe would be different if at the end of Empire Strikes Back, Vader had threatened to make Palin his apprentice in running the Empire? What if Luke Skywalker, after turning down that temptation after learning his arch enemy is actually his father and getting his hand chopped off, was faced with that possibility?

    Vader: (breathing sounds): Come join me son, and together we will rule the galaxy.

    Luke: No! I’ll never join you!

    Vader: Are you sure? I’ve got a backup plan! There is this young regional governor I’ve got an eye on; Sarah Palin. My vice emperor search committee said that she has already given a tentative “You betcha” to joining my ticket.

    Luke: Noooo! Not her! I would rather see the Galaxy plunged under the rule of the dark side forever than have to deal with her stupid face on TV for the next four years! She makes me so sick I can’t stand the thought of her…

    Vader: Yesss, let the hate flow through you…

    So although I’ve gotten a fair amount of amusement at the expense of all of you liberals who’ve managed to say the most incredibly stupid things about or because of her, maybe now that the nominating torch is passing to a blah moderate who is closer to Bill Clinton in ideology than Ronald Reagan, you guys can calm down and concentrate on what you do best: Dominating the media and voter fraud.

    Now on to the method of fulfilling your part of the wager: Writing a post on your blog extolling the virtues of Sarah Palin as President. I have to say I’m astounded. As difficult as your obligation under the bet was, you took your obligation seriously and managed to write a credible treatise as to why someone on your side of the aisle should support Palin for President. This actually had a logical, internal consistency that took a concept and developed it to plausibility.

    I doubt you can really appreciate it, but given the difficulty of your task, this is probably some of your best writing. You really knocked this one out of the park. I can’t say that if our positions had been reversed, if I could have come up with a post as credible and well written as yours is.

    If you can write this, with your emotion chip frying and crackling, you can probably write damn near anything. Don’t waste your gift, use it.

      Figures.. 1st the insults, then the accolades.. ah well, what more could a girl expect..

      I’m not going to address each and every jab.. I know, it’s your thing.. so why bother? Instead I’m just going to address them as a whole..but first Thank you! As always, I am very happy to have ‘astounded’ you and to have pleased you with my writing.. you can never know, nor would you believe, how much that actually means to me.. but more on that later..

      I don’t know why you were surprised I’d pay my debt.. I’m not a Socialist.. I pay what I owe and I know of no other way but to do it with pride.. You used to know this, but as with many of your other benevolent traits, you’ve seemed to have lost that knowledge as well..You’ve simply gone totally hyperbolic in your old age.. O Discordia!

      on to the subject.. Palin.

      I could tell you that as great as you thought this writing was, it took me no more than 20 mins to write..10 mins to source but an hour or more to put up because my Zemanta took a dump and dropped the entire blog.. I had to finagle it through the ‘undo’ button and a few ‘last edited’ options to get most, if not all, of it back.. thank Gan for that.. It was almost as if something was frizzing out just so I wouldn’t finish it.. the horror..

      I could tell you that as always, it simply wasn’t very hard to write. I had a topic.. once I have that, the world is my oyster.. or don’t you remember? This was spawned from a sentence that read.. “I always wanted to fuck my mother’s friend” or something like that.. It’s the topic that’s the key.. If I had the ability to come up with an amazing topic? Well, I’d be the next George RR Martin..or more realistically, E. L. James..(the uber irony here being my attempt at writing my own fiction, has it’s main character as “Christan” also.. no, really.. the 1st paragraph was(is)

      ….”a Guinness and a shot of Irish Whiskey.” Christan looked at Mary, wondering if she had started sneaking shots of her own this early in the day. “Mary,” he said smiling “You brought me drink already,love.” Mary smiled back, he was such a handsome man. “I know that dear, this is from the American who was sitting over in the corner.” Christan looked around but didn’t see anyone except the same amusing vagabonds that were always in the pub at this time. “Sorry Hon she’s already left…but I‘m sure she‘ll be in tomorrow” and Mary left with a grin. The puzzled look on Christan Kelley’s face would get her through the busy evening rush tonight.



      Funny how that works huh.. shoulda struck when the iron was hot..now using that name would be like calling a vampire ‘Edward”.. HA!)

      back to the reply..

      I could tell you the subject wasn’t as hard as you give me credit for.. I wrote what I admire about the woman. That doesn’t mean a 1000 other negative things I could say wouldn’t be just as true, but this blog wasn’t about those.. it was about paying the wager I lost, fair and square.. and despite my lacking ‘political analysis’, at the time of the bet.. she was the ‘it’ girl.. and don’t think the GOP just smartened up by not choosing her.. I fully believe what I said about her v Mitt.. there is no question the GOP traded down in nominating him..”Clinton-esque’, I don’t think so.. but it’s odd that you do and still support him.. show the partisanship in you..more proof of that below.

      I could tell you that I’m not surprised in the least that you doubt you could have repaid the debt as fluently had it gone in my favor. Not that you don’t have capability of being a great writer, I know you have it in you because I’ve seen it, 100’s of time..It simply proves the point I have been trying to make you see and shake you out of for a little while now.. You are the extreme partisan one in this fucked up relationship.. I can find something valid.. and what did you say “a logical, internal consistency that took a concept and developed it to plausibility.” about Sarah Palin for God’s sake.. because I am not as partisan, nor extreme as you have made me out to be in your head.. you on the other hand? Everything you’ve said about Palin, is really a reflection of you and yours when it comes to anything Obama..if it wasn’t, you wouldn’t have any problem fulfilling your end of the wager, if it had gone my way. The fact that you can’t find a shred of agreement or some positive with Obama.. who’s been more or less GWB the remix.. and turn it into a believable in-support-of blog…?

      Well, maybe you’re right.. maybe it’s just a gift I have.. But I don’t think so.. maybe you’ll reflect on that and drop a little of the extremism.. it’s a hope anyway..

      I can’t.. I’m lacking the ability to create a topic.. Once I have a topic, I can do pretty much anything with it.. it’s coming up with the topic that the kicker..

      I could tell you that it’s the writing dude.. I still love it and when the moon is right, I’m Goddamn good at it.. and while true… it’s not totally true..

      here’s the truth as I know it…

      When is a door a jar?

      ooops.. wrong story.

      It’s you.. it’s always been you.. I knew you were going to be reading it and it compelled me to ‘knock it out of the park’.. you are,have always been and will always be my Muse and my audience.. I can’t explain why this happened or how, but it is what it is… do with it as you like..

      anyway.. so maybe I did address each slight.. HA! But regardless, I’m glad you enjoyed it and call the debt paid in full..
