Fun with the GOP Ticket

Posted by Mike O on September 7, 2008

I think this video is hilarious and most of her supporters seem to think so, too.  If nothing else, Sarah represents real change… in terms of improvement in marksmanship for the office of Vice-President.

The comments to that video on YouTube and at HotAir are pretty telling.  Most of us on the right still seem to retain a sense of humor and are secure enough to be able to laugh about ourselves.  Much of the Democrat side seems to have lost that over the years; Obamatrons take themselves way too seriously to appreciate things like this about their own team.

I can see John McCain doing a followup to this SNL piece with Sarah as a sidekick.

I might have several disagreements with McCain, but I will say he has the confidence to be comfortable in his own skin (as loose as that skin is, he should be 🙂 ).

    Out of curiosity, what do you know about Gov. Palin?

    No, seriously.

    Look, I don’t know a damned thing about her. She could be the next Ronald Reagan, or she could be the next George W. Bush. I don’t know which she’ll be. It’s impossible to know.

    What I DO know is that picking her proved two things about John McCain: 1) He does unexpected, wild and crazy things; 2) he’s not at all serious about the presidency.

    I’ve heard the arguments about how Palin has equal experience to Obama. Firstly, that’s a lie, but let’s even pretend it’s the truth… She still has NEVER shown an interest in foreign policy. And just name-dropping regions and countries and conflicts in a prepared prime-time speech does not impress me; it reminds me of George W. Bush in 2000.

    That doesn’t mean she won’t be a great president, mind you. All it means is that we don’t know a damned thing about her. We DO know what Obama thinks about these things. Agree with it or disagree with it, at least he has positions. What are Palin’s? And why should we trust that she could take over at a moment’s notice if she’s never expressed any interest whatsoever in foreign affairs, which are the primary thrust of the presidency in the post-9/11 world?

    I know her full biography and what she’s done- both good and bad- as Mayor and Governor. Many of us have researched her extensively in the last week- and know more about her than we’ve learned about Obama in 18 months. She doesn’t hide college transcripts, paper trails of association with characters like Ayers, medical records prior to 19 months ago, or even a legal birth certificate (which is different than a Record of Birth). So the question is, do we know as much about the top of the Dem ticket as we do for the second slot for the GOP? Words in position papers are meaningless (especially as often as Barack has changes them); deeds are what matters.

    I think they’re about equal at this point, and the hundreds of Enquirer-level bottom-feeders and people pulled off counter-terrorism assignments currently scouring Alaska will be sure we know more. It’s been reported the Move-on.org gang is offering $5K for just stuff on Todd; the bounty on Sarah is sure to be much higher.

    Doesn’t all this make you proud of the way the Left and their MSM assistants operate?

    The difference between the Left and the rest of us is that we have faith in the capabilities of people like the Palins as much as in the political elites, probably more. Especially as a backup to the Big Guy.

  3. Mike O, cool blog
    I think it is important that a person needs to be able to laugh about themselves, no matter what job they have.
    I always liked that about Bush (and I don’t agree with many of his policies).
    Not that I’m saying that laughing should cloud achievements, or humor can beat bad policies, but it makes a person more down to earth.
    My highlight at the National Service Forum when McCain made a joke about his age, by pretending that he fell asleep – it was a great moment!
