The more we learn about McCain's Vice Presidential choice the more unsavory she becomes. From the (possibly fake) photo of Governor Palin in an American flag bikini gleefully toting a rifle, to credible reports that in her limited time as a public servant she has been on board for massive pork barrel spending, going so far as to hire a lobbyist for a town of 7,000, to allegations that Palin used her office to try and force the firing of a state trooper who was in a custody battle with her sister, the list is long, and getting longer. Of course the right wing spin machine is hard at work trying to give a warm glow to all the folderol, and let's face it, they have to be, because there's a lot of chicken shit to be packaged as chicken salad between now and next Tuesday.
Apparently, when John McCain said to Palin that nothing could prepare her for the harsh spotlight of a presidential campaign, she responded, "I can take it." Well, of course she can. Folks like her rarely harbor doubts much less shame about themselves. In the meantime, if I read one more post from another meat head prattling on about what a hottie Governor Palin is, I'm going to be sick. I don't care how she looks for a forty something, mother of three, she's pure trailer park, and whatever low opinion I have of the D.C. insider scene-which by the way is full of cretinous rednecks-the answer to America's problems isn't pistol packin' Palin.
