is it just me
Does anyone else think Sarah Palin is the Elizabeth Berkley of the Republican party? This is a lot like Showgirls. A whole bunch of powerful Hollywood guys get themselves in all kinds of trouble on a film and then one newcomer no one ever heard of before the movie launched becomes an unemployable Hollywood pariah and Verhoeven and Eszterhas and all the studio execs walk away like the film was her fault.
I am watching Sarah Palin stuff go down and while I do not feel for Palin the way I felt for Berkley watching her train wreck the similarities are startling. Even Fox News has apparently turned on Palin [who knew Fox News could actually turn on a Republican] and is now announcing she does not even know Africa is a continent. Um, hello, does Bush know Africa is a continent? Bush cannot even pronounce nuclear how could he keep his continents straight? But suddenly —
The ire and outrage of a nation — hell of the world if the Brits are actually blowing up Palin in effigy — is all focused on one small uneducated woman from Alaska who is such a political newcomer they had to dress her just to shove her on a stage and nobody is pointing at the power players. Bush? Cheney? Rove? Anybody remember those players? Who by the way are still pulling strings in D.C. so are not only culpable for a collection of crimes and misdemeanors so monumental they make Nixon bugging Democratic party hotel rooms look like a boy scout making his merit badge, but are still doing whatever the hell they want while everyone else is busy blowing up Palin replicas and completely ignoring the fact McCain and the power players chose Palin in the first place and are now just handing her over to Fox News while they pretend they are all roses.
We grew up enough to put Obama in office. Isn’t it time we grew up enough to stop chasing decoys too?
i mean it too about bush and continents someone call the white house and ask, does bush know africa is a continent — i bet he doesn’t i bet he cannot even find it on a map
