Yesterday afternoon while in the middle of a Scrabble game with Mrs. Dada, we were interrupted by Charles Gibson interviewing our next vice president(?), Sarah Palin. Her repeated obfuscation served up in her answers to Gibson's questions were annoying at the least, scarier than hell at the most.We learned she didn't know what the Bush Doctrine is. But we also discovered you can actually see Russia from someplace in western Alaska which, right after her visit to Canada is sufficient experience to validate her foreign affairs expertise, hence, to blow the shit out of Iran on behalf of the Israelis.(NOTICE: Dada can see Juarez from El Paso and, should McCain win the election, please note I plan to vie for the ambassadorship to Mexico at the least, or the State Department's chargés d'affaires of all of Latin America at most.)The deeper Gibson and Palin got into the interview, the more and more I found myself thinking of Britney Spears and her sweet yet very dangerous political naiveté. Maybe my confusion was why I was expecting Palin to grace us with a few bars of "Hit Me Baby One More Time."Curious side note: After the interview, we resumed our Scrabble game and Mrs. Dada immediately hit me with an 8 letter word: n-a-i-v-e-t-é!Hmm, synchronicity? I think not!
Hey there..well..her neighbors are Russia- and she also waited tables and served french frires- so that is her Foreign State Experience....You and Mrs Dada definently qualify to be Ambassadors to Mexico- only if you also have had Burritos too ?We all wish we could forget the Bush Doctrine- she really blundered- but it was not a Small Neoconal Error....it was a Biggie...And she was getting bit snippy with Charlie- which was to be a Softball interview...scary woman....do see the Matt Damon Clip I posted and how she says she should not be near the BUTTON....he is dead right..Best to MRS Dada- I hope the Naive word was a big score ;-)
Thanks for sending me over to the Damon link, enigma. He couldn't be any more "right on!" This IS scarier than shit.And to answer your question: "Yes, I have had burritos, too, so I'm definitely still in the running for Amb. to Mex.! (I'd say you adding that requirement was hilarious, e4e, if it wasn't a metaphor for Palin's foreign diplomacy skills and experience which are totally absurb, scary and extremely dangerous.)
hey lady.. I did watch and i did groan with you. trust me!
Oh Folks....we all can GROAN together....Let's HOPE that alot of folks are groaning loudly and go and Vote with their Brains....Thanks Sandy and Dada....nice to know I don't bang my head alone at 3am....oye
Enigma, I've seen other folks pointing this out... I sort of overlooked it, where Gibson called her on "hubris" for not even thinking about accepting the VP slot. Indeed, think about how much hubris that took? The woman is so ignorant she didn't even stop to think about whether or not she qualified? So, by her admission she is saying she makes snap decisions. She also repeated the same talking point 3 times, like someone who has learned by rote and wants to apply the knowledge somewhere, whether appropriate or not.It was an abysmal failure. But, her true believer followers probably won't acknowledge it, sadly enough. I hope the fence-sitters do though.
