Sarah Palin and Christine O'Donnell. Caribou Barbie and the Missing Halliwell Sister , who may or may not be a Born Again Virgin .
They both have been tarted up and pimped out, but seriously after listening to them for five minutes how can you take them seriously?
I find it interesting the parallels and not just the bobble-head worthy comments showing basic ignorance about this country, issues and U.S. History- but the freedom they both feel with spending other people's money while claiming fiscal conservatism.
Sarah Palin spent money like a house on fire during her campaign, and Christine O'Donnell has been accused by former staffers of using campaign monies on personal expenses? Shit, I didn't make it up, it's in the Boston Globe today along with the news that for some reason, freaky girl can't keep her help -treasurer particularly.
The Globe says:
WILMINGTON, Del. — Republican Christine O’Donnell has parted ways with yet another campaign treasurer and appointed her campaign manager to the position, making her the fifth since launching her bid for Senate last year.
Campaign finance specialists say the turnover is highly unusual and could raise questions at the Federal Election Commission about her financial reporting.
Campaign treasurers, which are required by the FEC, are legally responsible for the accuracy of spending and contribution reports.....Two former staffer members have also accused O’Donnell of using campaign money for personal expenses.
The latest O’Donnell treasurer to leave is Sandra Taylor, who began in August and lasted less than two months. Campaign manager Matt Moran is now listed as treasurer in reports filed in early October.
Of course if that doesn't get you, her bobble head knowledge levels are dangerously close to "I read every newspaper" Palin, and you have that catchy Wicca angle just in time for Halloween. Good lord, have you seen the O'Donnell thing on Huffington Post called The Craziest Things Christine O'Donnell Has Ever Said (PHOTOS) ?
Let's see...some O'Donnell pearls of wisdom...ahhh yes - Masturbation = Adultery , "I dabbled into witchcraft. I never joined a coven." , and one of the best "American scientific companies are cross-breeding humans and animals and coming up with mice with fully functioning human brains." (Which of course means that someone must have transplanted a mouse's brain into her head, right?)
I get the knee jerk reaction to change some of the status quo, but Christine O'Donnell is dangerous and Delaware and the United States Senate don't need a mini-me of Sarah Palin with a taste for even more of the ridiculous.
She's not me.
Now onto Sarah Palin, which is what almost made me spit out my tea at 7 a.m. Sarah Palin in that coy as a long haul truck driver way of hers was reported on the news this morning as dancing around the 2012 Presidential Race. And yep found it in the New York Times Blog The Caucus - so I have to ask maybe Dancing With the Stars can work out a deal with her, where Thunder Thighs early breeder Bristol Palin her daughter will take the title and Mama Grizzly Bear will go back to Alaska and stay there? (I mean why else is Bristol Palin still on the show? She sucks and has thighs like a sumo wrestler)
And as the Washington Post Post Partisan Blog says:
Republican Establishment types are freaked because Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin is using the enthusiasm of her Tea Party base to endorse candidates across the country, raise barrels of cash for Sarah PAC and lay the foundation for a presidential run in 2012. Add to that her name recognition and ability to drive the political press corps wild with 140 characters, and the half-term governor of Alaska and 2008 vice presidential nominee is almost unstoppable. Emphasis on almost.
What this blogger focuses his piece on is a front page story in New York Magazine - the article is titled 2012: How Sarah Barracuda Becomes President/Why do you think Barack Obama is being so nice to Michael Bloomberg? By John Heilemann
Snarky says read it. And be afraid, very, very afraid.
I still can't stand Sarah Palin.
She's not me.
Wake up Delaware and the rest of this country! Yeah, OK, Obama has really sucked thus far - the man we all though he is got lost in the political machine. But that doesn't mean go to the other extreme and elect one bobble head political virgin to the United States Senate representing Delaware. And if O'Donnell doesn't like a female blogger telling her she is nuttier then Jim Schneller (and who thought that was possible), too bad.
And let's also make sure Caribou Barbie, Mama Grizzly Bear, whatever you want to call Sarah Palin doesn't go anywhere near DC as an elected official. There is a LOT wrong in this country, but electing these two women to anything other then disturbed prom queen is a fool's errand.
You don't balance and fix what is broken in this country by putting certifiable nut jobs in office.
I don't know who Palin and O'Donnell Are, but they're not me. Don't let them be you, either.
Just say no.
