Democrats are starting to remind me of a cartoon character, brought to life by the late Jack Lemmon in the Blake Edwards’ comedy, The Great Race. Lemmon plays the archetype villain, Professor Fate, complete with black cape, stove top hat, and curling black mustache. He’s the kind of character who would utter, “Curses, foiled again.”
In their own, classy, endearing manner, liberals are doing the same thing when it comes to the nomination of Sarah Palin for Vice President, mimicking the way they behaved and continue to behave when it comes to Clarence Thomas.
Curses, foiled again!
Barack Obama did not have the courage nor the class to ask Hillary Clinton to be his running mate. John McCain not only stole Barack Obama’s show but his thunder on Friday when he chose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to be the first female Vice President of the United States. Foiled, his liberal supporters are furious. Furious liberals are a thing of consequence, beauty, and humor. Their lives are made up of such inconsequential contradictions that they cannot tolerate being exposed or anyone who might be part of that expose.
I’ve been known to write that John McCain is the worst nightmare of certain conservatives. If he is just that, then Sarah Palin is the thing of night terrors for liberals, especially women. She is proof you can have it all, if you wish. It’s a strange thing. You would think conservatives would be the ones upset with her. She works outside the home. She splits child-raising with her husband. She has a pregnant teenage daughter. These are all good liberal soap-box topics.
If you check the comments on my previous Blogcritics articles about Sarah Palin, it is amusing. Liberals are showing just how absolutely insane they can be when their bluff is called. Now that Sarah Palin is doing all the right things (in the Democratic playbook, previous edition) they have changed the rules in the middle of the game. They are backing down on the experience thing. Their bluff has been called on the Daily Kos Creepiness about Tig belonging to Bristol.
Sarah Palin should stay home and take care of her kids. Sally Quinn doesn’t think she’s up to it. But then, if Sarah Palin were a liberal, I gather she would be a paragon. Strange, but the very reasons Quinn uses to put Sarah Palin down and degrade her position were sacrosanct until….ummm…last Friday when the GOP beat the Democrats to the draw and have put a working mom in a position where she could end up being POTUS.
