I can’t possibly take John McCain seriously and no one else should. Does he really think that Sarah Palin can run a country? If anything just by accepting the nomination she is making a joke of it. At least Obama has the guts to surround himself with a running mate who has experience where he may be lacking. McCain surrounded himself with a hockey mom. Give me a break. I really don’t want a hockey mom leading my nation. This isn’t the Wild West any more. We don’t need an Annie Oakley riding shot gun over a nation that is at this moment the laughing stock of the world. I would have a problem with Palin going into negotiations with another country when she doesn’t know what her own kids are doing. Don’t call her super mom. I’m sure someone else is taking care of the kids. If she is, how can she devote herself to running a state full-time? The super mom is the single parent living below the poverty level working two jobs to make ends meet AND taking care of her kids. I doubt that parent has time to run a country. Please don’t call her courageous for having a Down Syndrome child either. Risks of parents over forty having a Down Syndrome child goes up dramatically. I call it irresponsible.
As for her pregnant daughter; if the shoe was on the other foot I’m sure the self-righteous conservatives would have a field day with it. All is game when you are in the public eye. Ask any movie star or Bill Clinton, for that matter. How do you think the seventeen year old, unwed, woman living in poverty reacts to an unexpected pregnancy? She may not have such an “understanding” or well off family to support her. I thought Palin was in favor of abstinence for teens. What is that old saying; do as I say, not as I do? So sorry Sarah, I would rather my daughter have a better role model.
Wake up America ! We need to get back on track. We need a leader, not a cowboy, a maverick or a hockey mom. Let’s put the United States back on the world map as a world class leader of nations again.
