Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin claims that she could beat President Obama in 2012 if she decides to run. The Republican nominee for vice president in 2008 said in an interview with ABC news that she is considering a presidential run because the time is ripe.
The time is right for what?─to have a virtual reality run for president. Do the Republicans really want someone to run for president that doesn’t know that Africa is a continent? You betcha! Do the Republicans really want someone to run for president whose foreign affairs experience consist of “being able to see Russia from my back yard?” You betcha! Do the Republicans really want someone to run for president that claims “I have read all of ’em, any of ’em that have been in front of me over all these years” ( in reference to not being able to name a single newspaper or magazine that she reads in an interview with Katie Couric on CBS). You betcha!
Let’s try a few more: “We used to hustle over the border for health care we received in Canada. And I think now, isn’t that ironic.” (In reference to her family’s use of the Canadian single-payer health care system.) What? I thought Obamacare was the beginning of death-panel like rationing. Now that is ironic.
In reference to inventing such words as “Refudiate, misunderestimate, and wee-weed up”
“Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!” Shakespeare must be turning in his grave.
After being asked what a vice president does by a third grader: “They’re in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better.” Talk about dumbing down.
Need I say more? The scary part here is not that she thinks she could be president, but that other Americans would vote for her. Can anyone spell “Mavrick?” You betcha!
