Sarah Palin Makes Dan Quayle Look Like Einstein

Warning- this is a political post:

I’m sorry, but I am embarrassed, as a woman, by Palin’s recent gaffes while interviewed by Katie Couric (who is not exactly known for her hard-hitting, difficult journalism). Palin clearly did not have any idea about any Supreme Court decision other than Roe v. Wade. Come on, Brown v. Board of Education, anyone? Even Bush v. Gore would’ve worked. But no, she couldn’t come up with one. Couldn’t come up with the name of a newspaper she reads on a regular basis either. I guess following the example of Bush Jr., who doesn’t have time to read! (And there’s more, such as Palin’s inability to point out any example of McCain’s attempt at financial regulation, totally “forgetting” his attempts to rein in Freddie and Fannie, inexplicably.)

Palin is proud of herself as a “Joe Six Pack,” she says. I’m sorry, but I don’t want “Joe Six Pack” anywhere near the White House. Ask ultra-conservative Justice Scalia, were the founding fathers Joe Six-Packs? Were George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and John Adams Jr. Joe Six-Packs? Are we going to continue the glorification of the dumbing down of America? Let’s call a spade a spade. Joe Six Pack is NOT qualified to be the number two man or woman in America.

A country where Joe Six Pack is just as good as Abraham Lincoln is a country that has caved in to Communist theory. Where the average uneducated, unknowledgable, and intellectually “uncurious” worker is just as qualified and as prepared to be in high executive office as the high school dropout who works on the line. Is this truly the kind of equality we want in America? Do we want more cringeworthy moments; or more convoluted explanations of what Palin “really meant”? Is this really the best woman for the job?

  1. Oddly, GL, it’s the right that considers our country lost to communism because of people like Barack Obama. Your point is well taken.

  2. Gina,Great post. I’d love to see you weigh in more often on the political scene.
