Why we’re still watching Sarah Palin

November 22, 2008 at 4:18 pm (Sarah Palin Unplugged, Uncategorized) (, , , , )

If you watched the turkey interview given by Sarah Palin, you must have asked yourself why it was covered by the national news services. How many interviews does this person have to give, butchering language, logic and now fowl, before some people accept the fact that she makes most high school cheerleaders sound like they have a doctorate in English Literature. Every time she opens her mouth, she confirms the fact that she cannot speak a single coherent, complete sentence, and is unable to articulate the suffix “ing”. In this particular interview, she tries to sound politically adroit in her folksy kind of way, but comes off like Leo Gorcey from the old Deadend Kids serials. Of course, the turkeys being slaughtered in the background aren’t the issue. It’s the idea that she was so totally oblivious to what was going on right behind her and how disconnected it was from what she was talking about. An intelligent person would not try to add “a little levity” to a scene of animals being bled out right behind them. It was a classic metaphor of her world-view. A complete lack of awareness. If Palin ever wants to be taken seriously in national politics, the first thing she’ll have to do is go back to high school and take a few English and public speaking courses. Maybe some World and U.S. history classes would help, and a couple of semesters studying world georgraphy wouldn’t hurt, either. Unfortunately, there is no course that will correct her intellectual impairment. And the college that gave her the degree in Journalism should lose its accreditation immediately. This woman is a walking traffic accident and right now the whole country is rubbernecking, hoping to catch her next slaughtering of the language.

    I think Geraldine Ferraro would argue with that statement. I also think that tens of millions of women were deeply disappointed that the SECOND woman to run for vice president was a right-wing, pro-life, creationist who believes that mankind walked alongside living dinosaurs. For this country to come anywhere close to electing a vice president who eschews the scientific method and talks like a high school drop-out is nothing any thinking American should take pride in. The Republican Party picked Palin to be on the ticket not because she was qualified, but because she would appeal to the evangelical base of the party. That miscalculation played a central role in John McCain’s loss on November 4th.
