Peg Bundy for PresidentSeptember 1, 2008
You’ve GOT to be kidding me.
In a desperate attempt to lure Hillary voters, Senator McCracken chooses a running mate who, without giggling, actually touts her experience by noting that “she served as head of the PTA”.
What. The. Fuck.
It’s a joke, right? TV pundits can’t even mention her name and record without choking down a giggle.
It’s not just confusing, it’s insane. A guy whose been under the knife, what, four times? the oldest man to run for prez ever, chooses someone like this for second in command. Someone with zero qualifications.
I’m embarrassed for all women, especially the 100,000 or so who are more qualified. The only reason McCain picked her is because she fits right into the ticket:
She’s under investigation by her state legislature. Hey, who isn’t?
she has a 17 year-old pregnant daughter. Those pesky family values shouldn’t get in the way- they only apply to other people, right?
She’s in the pocket of the big oil companies. Oh sorry, I meant to say “energy“.
Her environmental record is abysmal.
Those four are enough for now but there’s plenty more.
My buddy brought up a good point- the Repubs. must’ve been praying HARD for a natural disaster to disrupt the convention. Bush and Cheney promised to stay away for “safety’s sake” but the party doesn’t want them anywhere NEAR the place.
Guys, this race is So in Obama’s pocket I almost feel sorry for those bastards. I can’t wait for the Biden/Palin debate.
Oh, before I go I’ll leave you with a quote of hers dug up by the daily kos. I’m sure there’ll be more whoppers to come.
Q: Are you offended by the phrase “Under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance? Why or why not?
PALIN: Not on your life. If it was good enough for the founding fathers, its good enough for me and I’ll fight in defense of our Pledge of Allegiance.
I don’t even know what to say to that… I think the only possible response is a long, drawn out pause, followed by a vigorous beating of your head against the wall.
