Don't forget that Our Fellow Americans were asking fucking MICHAEL DOUGLAS for his opinion on the bailout today: http://tinyurl.com/3z9cm9 (Don't worry, it's just a Yahoo link.) We live in a country of idiots.

I'm one of those of the opinion that this isn't an accident; this is exactly how they plan things to go. They didn't set out to "govern well", the way people like us would define it, and fail. They set out to keep the rubes at each others' throats with culture war ephemera while they looted the Treasury and transferred trillions of dollars of public wealth into private hands. Mission accomplished!

Spunky hockey mom goes to DC to "clean up the mess" might make a good Hollywood flick ("Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington"?) - but in real life, this is a nightmare scenario, like you said. A heartbeat away from being POTUS!!! And McCain, if elected, would be the oldest president in an office office that has a track record giving Palin at least a 1:5 chance of having to step up to the plate.

From the Couric interview:
Appearing on the CBS Evening News with Katie Couric, Palin briefly discussed McCain's call for greater oversight of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- the two beleaguered mortgage houses - as evidence that McCain doesn't always shy from a firmer government role in the economy. But when pressed, she could not name an actual instance where McCain supported regulation.

"I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point," Couric said. "Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation."

"I'll try to find you some and I'll bring them to you," Palin responded.

Except if you watch the interview, Palin lapsed into her stupid folksy mom speech and said "I'll bring 'em to ya."

Because being a maverick is tooooaaatally different than cowboy diplomacy. It's gonna be great!

You guys are forgetting Palin's incredible foreign diplomatic relationship with the Russians. (fishermen) AND I mean, she can SEE Russia from Alaska on a clear day, with her keen eyesight. What other governor can make those claims? C'mon now!!!

Also, the state of Alaska pays the Palins $21,000 a year just for being residents--$3000 a head. So Sarah knows a little bit about the evils of socialism and big government. That's why she's a Republican!

Government's never done anything to make her life better. Other than give her family $21000 a year. But other than that? Nothing!

Who needs it!
