I try to shake off my political past. In my declining years, I would rather laugh than fight. More fun for everyone is my current motto.
But the presidential campaign is too weird to let pass. I'm coming out of retirement.
Sarah Palin is a hottie. Not my words. That’s a Rush Limbaugh observation.
She is also a liar. Doozies: selling the state airplane on eBay, opposing the Bridge to Nowhere, opposing earmarks. All lies. We may learn more if the Republicans ever release her from that secure, undisclosed location where they are shielding her from the press and the public.
Palin told her fundamentalist church it was “God’s will” that the federal government put up $30 billion for a gas pipeline in Alaska. And she said the war in Iraq is “a task from God.” Isn’t that also what the Muslim fundamentalists say about the war?
Look me in the eye, Senator. Do you really think she is qualified to be commander in chief. Really?
After the past eight years, do we really want four more of the same?
Repeat after me: the economy. Say it again. The Bush government has run up a near-record deficit of $407 billion.
Shake your head and mutter: the mortgage crisis, gasoline crisis, banking crisis. the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac crisis. It’s the economy.
More: the Katrina bungle, the war in Iraq bungle, the Abu Ghraib bungle, the Justice Department hiring bungle. And where the hell is Osama Bin Laden?
Alberto Gonzales, Scooter Libby, Donald Rumsfeld, Jack Abramoff.
The politics of fear: Dick Cheney. Karl Rove. George Bush.
John McCain has voted with the Bush administration 90% of the time. The question bears repeating: After the past eight years, do we really want four more of the same?
