Why Exposing Sarah Palin Still Matters

The Daily Dish has a must-read new article on why exposing the Sarah Palin insanity still matters:

Let's be real in a way the national media seems incapable of: this person should never have been placed on a national ticket in a mature democracy. She was incapable of running a town in Alaska competently. The impulsive, unvetted selection of a total unknown, with no knowledge of or interest in the wider world, as a replacement president remains one of the most disturbing events in modern American history. That the press felt required to maintain a facade of normalcy for two months - and not to declare the whole thing a farce from start to finish - is a sign of their total loss of nerve. That the Palin absurdity should follow the two-term presidency of another individual utterly out of his depth in national government is particularly troubling. 46 percent of Americans voted for the possibility of this blank slate as president because she somehow echoed their own sense of religious or cultural "identity". Until we figure out how this happened, we will not be able to prevent it from happening again. And we have to find a way to prevent this from recurring. She is a dangerous, unqualified know-nothing who very nearly became the replacement for the most powerful person on earth.

Amen to that! - She seemed half way viable during her acceptance speech, but after Katie Couric and Charlie Gibson peeled away a few layers, it was quite clear that this woman is nuttier then a Chinese chicken salad not not fit for public service at the national level and perhaps not even state level. However, if the fine people of Alaska what her, they can have her. Good luck with that.

Hello! I'm making a survey on my blog under the title: "Only a dream"

If you could make a question, a plea, a wish to Obama, what would you say?

Please visit my blog and let all our voices be heard!

Thank you. Polly.

From my own research, it seems to me the folks who believe Palin is ready to be Prez are people who disrespect government. They don't know much about government and they don't think government can be a solution to problems.

If you believe that, I suggest you keep telling yourself that. Much of your criticism about Gov. Palin could be leveled at President Obama. What experiences and accomplishments qualify him for the job?

It's a moot point anyway because wheather he is qualified or not, he is president and will be responsible for the results good or bad stemming from his actions as President.
