The CBS interview was just her third major interview in nearly four weeks on the GOP presidential ticket. Asked whether there's a risk of another Great Depression if Congress doesn't approve a $700 billion bailout package, Palin said, "Unfortunately, that is the road that America may find itself on."
Palin said the answer to the financial crisis doesn't necessarily have to be the bailout plan that the Bush administration has proposed, but that it should be some form of bipartisan action to reform Wall Street.
You know, she might accidentally be right. Who knows? Wall Street doesn't. The Fed doesn't. Paulson doesn't. And considering the corrupt, incompetent moron who has been running the executive branch for the last eight years, "Great Depression" as an answer has got to get better than even odds on where the country is going.
And while I understand this person could conceivably--and I mean that, of course, in the Hieronymus Bosch sense of what the human mind can conceive--wind up in the Oval Office, the question America has to ask itself is:
When it comes to a person whose two greatest achievements are building a skating rink and being able to apply more cosmetics than the family pet, who gives a flying fuck what she thinks about credit default swaps and mortgage backed securities?
I mean, is this really happening???
She was the mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. Population, like, six thousand. When I was at Penn State, there were dormitory administrators who had more responsibilities than her.
And America really needs her keen insight into the global banking crisis? People are actually asking her opinion? Newspapers and television stations are actually reporting it? Like it means something? Like she possibly knows what she's talking about?
Why not ask her opinion on cancer therapies? Or what Charlie Weiss can do to shore up Notre Dame's running game? Why not have her sit down with Charles Gibson for a one on one, no holds barred, live televised Q&A on why the ABS light keeps flickering on my dashboard?
She doesn't know. She doesn't have a fucking clue!
You could haul any asshole off a bus or yank any jerk out of a Lotto line anywhere in America and ask them what they thought about the financial train wreck the de-regulatin', straight shootin', gut feelin' idiots the modern Gee Oh Pee has turned loose on the world and their answer, no matter how stupid, would be just as insightful as Sarah Palin's.
Why do we have to endure this stupidity? Why do Republicans make the greatest country in the history of the world pretend that Anybody Can Be President! All it takes is a little bit o' ol' fashioned pluck and a whole lotta Jesus in yer heart!
It would be belly laugh out loud ludicrous to even read this garbage...
...well, if it weren't for the fact that the same people who put Chancie the Gardner into the White House to create this mess want to put a "spunky" Hockey Mom in the White House to clean it up.
Would it ever collectively kill the modern Gee Oh Pee to run, like, a great administrator to run the executive branch? Would it actually kill them all to run, say, an actual smart or competent person for President?
In my lifetime, they never have.
Do they honestly not want to? Or can't they?
