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.
I thought liberals were the ones who said women can have it all. Evidently that’s just if the woman is a liberal, right?
While we are on the subject, why was it okay for Joe Biden to remain in the remain in the Senate after losing his wife in that tragic auto accident? If we are to apply the New Liberal Palin Rules then Joe Biden should have stayed home to care for his motherless sons. I've not listened to Rush Limbaugh in months. This morning I just happened to turn the radio on for a few minutes while running errands. His comments on Joe Biden hit the spot. It was perfectly acceptable, laudable for Joe Biden to hold a national office and commute back and forth to Deleware to raise his boys. Do you smell the vile odor of a double standard here?
Curses! Foiled again!
Sarah Palin is not well educated. She ONLY has a degree in journalism. Evidently a person needs a master’s in what-ever and preferably a law degree to be VP. I would say be an attorney but from what I’ve heard, Barack Obama’s never “practiced” law a day in his life. He has never tried a case. But he is an attorney and has an advanced degree and has probably stayed at a Holiday Inn Express. He want to Harvard and we all know people who go to Harvard are more important and better educated than some Podunk university in the unwashed outback of Idaho.
Heck, I’m surprised the woman even knows enough to brush her teeth and put on deodorant. Wait a minute – Alaska is part of that unwashed outback of the Wild West. She probably doesn’t even wear deodorant, right? She represents the unwashed masses of the middle class, or middle America at its very worst – right? White, female, and uneducated! Count me in, will you.
The most educated person I’ve ever encountered was a master carpenter (and a good Republican) from South Carolina, in the rural upstate of Oconee County. Elbert Adams never went beyond the 2nd grade, and lived in an old house that was without indoor plumbing . He had a few teeth. He was tall, thin, and wore bib over-alls, looking rather like an adult version of Dennis the Menace. He could recite Kipling, Byron, Shakespeare and the rest of the masters of poetry. He could explain the differences in modern English and Shakespearean Middle English. He could explain geopolitics, cross referencing current events with the works of Pultarch, Josephus, or other ancient historians. Mr. Adams knew everything going on in the world, and had an opinion about it – but never finished the 2nd grade.
Some of the most ignorant, ill-informed people I’ve ever known in my life have advanced degrees. Once upon a time we lived in a world where the measure of a "man's" education was not taken in degrees but in how well read he/she was. Their accomplishments in life were not as important as character, honor and patriotism. Mr./Ms Average Citizen were expected to be knowledgable, vote, and be responsible citizens. This included stepping into public office be it local, state, or national if necessary. It was not a career. It was Patriotism.
Curses! Foiled again!
Sarah Palin is damning her Downs Syndrome child, Tig, by not breast feeding him. You read the previous sentence correctly, I kid you not. Someone on one of my Blogcritics articles posted that because Palin is not staying home to breast feed Tig, she is harming his mental development by a good 10 points in the IQ. Can you believe it! (FYI – Palin takes her baby to work and breasts feeds him!)
All of this tells me we are in the middle of the much awaited liberal breakdown. It has been a long-time coming and they’ve earned every minute of it. During this crack-up we’re starting to see some of that liberal veneer start to warp a little. Terminal crevasses are beginning to appear. At first I was disgusted and repelled by their ludicrous behavior, but the more I think about it and the wackier it becomes I’m starting to laugh a them.
They are becoming cartoons, buffoons, caricatures of all those lovely “liberal” values of tolerance, inclusiveness, and live and let live attitudes they allegedly claim to possess. I'm beginning to think if Sarah Palin were a lesbian in a lesbian relationship they would denounce the gay lifestyle! If Sarah Palin suddenly came out of the closet and admitted she was the grand pubah of Planned Parenthood, our erstwhile liberals would suddenly become anti-abortion. If Sarah Palin were to accept the presidency of Code Pink the entire anti-war crowd would morph into Rambo! If Sarah Palin were to become an atheist….I think you get the picture.
Evidently we do live in two different Americas. There is the America of the liberals who are free to come and go, do what they want and no one should ever dare criticize them for it. They are liberal. They are inclusive, they are tollerant, their intentions are "pure". Then there is America of the Republicans. Nothing we can do is right. It doesn’t matter. Maybe we should just give up, shoot ourselves and put us out of their misery, right?
Or, maybe liberals should just get a life and truly learn how to live and let live. John McCain beat them to the punch. It is entirely possible Sarah Palin is going to be the next Vice President of the United States of America. It’s entirely possible she may be President one day. She has a child with Downs Syndrome and did not abort him. She lugs the little guy to work with her. She has a 17 year old daughter who is pregnant and is planning to marry the father of her child.
Would someone please explain how any of this disqualifies her to be VP?
We aren’t even touching on the ‘qualification’ argument which is insulting to Democratic intelligence. The woman is more qualified than Barack Obama and that’s the whole rub. For some strange reasons when liberal Democrats are backed into a corner they become "creepy and they're kooky, mysterious and spooky, they're all together ooky" and and just plain funny. They are also annoying and can truly harm innocent people and reputations. Maybe they should have a warning sign rubber-stamped across their foreheads.
Then there’s one other little aspect of a Sarah Palin VP Candidacy. It trumps Barack Obama. Liberal Democrats are beginning to reek of that special odiferous aura of impending doom. Please, continue your current path to abject destruction. You are funny. I’ve realized it’s just fun to sit back and enjoy the show. I’m going to go fix some popcorn.
Just remember, come November, the American people may be sick and tired of the temper tantrum and may end up throwing a bucket of cold water on you.
Deal with it – and Sarah Palin. She’s here to stay.
Curses! Foiled again!
P. S. It just dawned on me. I have the wrong cartoon characters. Barack Obama and his liberal little Democratic friends remind me of the Adaams Family!
They're creepy and they're kooky,
Mysterious and spooky,
They're all together ooky,
The Democrat Family.
