Okay, I’m confused. Sarah Palin has been selected by John McCain to be his Vice President candidate. Until McCain picked her, 90% of this nation never heard of her. No one knew her name — for the most part — outside of Alaska. Yet, McCain’s campaign engine has “declared heatedly it was time to stop questioning her background.”1
Are they kidding?
The woman is running for Vice President of the United States of America. I think she needs to answer some questions. Like, how is she going to do in energy meetings when her husband works for an oil company? According to “Tucker Eskew, a senior McCain advisor”2 she is “someone with both hands on the steering wheet of America’s energy economy.”3 Probably because she sleeps with someone who works for an OIL COMPANY.
The campaign is trying to play the sex card because the media is just out to “destroy the first female Republican nominee.”4 When Hillary tried to play the sex card, the media and the GOP just made fun of her, but I guess you can play it when the female is a Republican and it is okay. If she isn’t tough enough to answer questions now before she’s even officially nominated as Vice President, how the hell is she ever going to be tough enough to be Vice President?
And, by not asking her questions, by not looking into her background, is the GOP just wanting us to accept four more years of secrecy and lies? Are we as a nation supposed to just lie there and blindly agree with our government? Haven’t we had enough of that?
And, another thing, I don’t think people should have us ignore Palin’s inexperience and then knock Obama’s. That’s being a hypocrite. And, if you’re wondering, Yes, I’m talking directly to you, Fred Thompson. (But, if you’re reading this, I loved you on Law & Order.)
