Thoughts on everything from Politics to Video Games

Date: October 23, 2008

At five Colleges, Palin never learned the roles of the Vice President? Even I did that much!

Did Palin NOT take a politics or history class during her time at those five colleges? How could she think this? The Vice President doesn’t “get in there” and make any good policy. I’m sure Vice Presidents have acted on the President’s behalf to work with Senators, but I don’t think in the way she mentioned. And, I do know that the Vice President is President of the Senate, but that doesn’t mean much besides the tie breaker vote.

Just what the heck did she study at University of Hawaii-Hilo (although the school has no record of her), Hawaii Pacific University in Honolulu, North Idaho College, Matanuska-Susitna Community College and University of Idaho? I know she has a degree in journalism, but I would think a journalism major would have to know the role of the Vice President of the United States of America. But, then, I’ve never taken journalism classes, so maybe I’m wrong.

Attended 5 colleges and now she’s running for Vice President

This is to all the Palin supporters out there. All those people who think she’d make a heckva Vice President and a terrific President.

I want you to think about what I’m about to say long and hard. Sarah Palin attended five different colleges before finally sticking to one and graduating in 1987 — two years after she should’ve. I attended five different colleges before finally sticking to one and graduating in 2006 — 17 years after I should’ve.

Would you want me to be the President of the United States? Or, even Vice President?

I didn’t think so.

As much as this pains me to say, statistically speaking, John McCain has a 20.93% chance of not finishing out his term. We have had 9 Presidents in US history to not finish their terms — 4 were assassinated (Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and Kennedy), 4 died in office (Harrison, Taylor, Harding and FDR) and one resigned (Nixon). We’ve only had 43 men sitting in that oval office chair. ((9/43)*100 = 20.93%)

So, would you feel the same if she was going to be President? If McCain is elected, she has a 1 in 5 chance of being our 45th President. Did anyone else feel a chill go down their back at the thought of President Palin?

Further, as much as she’s just like us — you betcha — she isn’t. How many of us have five children? How many of us read whatever someone else puts in front of us? How many of us have a family income of $250,000 per year?

I’m betting not many.

Now, let’s move on to a some things that’re bugging me about Joe the Plumber. I’ve heard two rumors that I can’t get the truth on: One, I hear he isn’t a licensed plumber — is that true? Two, I heard that he owes back taxes — is that true?

But, the major thing that bugging me is that Joe the Plumber said that he’s thinking of buying a company that makes $250,000 a year. Obama said Joe’s taxes will go up, but I don’t think he heard him right. Obama said that taxes will go up on people who earn $250,000 a year, not businesses. Plus, I thought Obama’s tax plan wouldn’t raise taxes on small businesses that earn $250,000 a year.

So, those “I’m Joe the Plumber” ads the Republican Party are running are full of crap. They’re twisting Obama’s words. Plus, sorry, if you’re making $250,000 a year — you have plenty and can afford to pay taxes. I could go on about that thought, but that’s a post for another day.

God Bless
