Having had a 24-hour moratorium on what has essentially become the ‘silly season’ in the realm of American presidential politics—where lipstick-enhanced pigs fly and fight along side steaming hot bowls of moose stew and other diversionary tactics for sound bytes within a cable news culture—perhaps we can finally address some of the real issues and problems with Governor ‘Pit Bull’ Palin as a probably not-so-well-vetted vee pee candidate. The boring (boaring?) yet critical (read REAL) problems with Palin include not only her obvious lack of familiarity with the Bush Doctrine—but perhaps more tellingly—her sheepish/mulish attempts to bluff (weasel) her way through was clearly a gaping lack of knowledge when queried by ABC’s Charlie Gibson. The begging question: Would Palin attempt this sort of ‘cat and mouse’ charade as she’s discussing global issues with world leaders for fear that her lack of experience and knowledge may become blatantly, embarrassingly—dangerously—obvious?
Further, one has to wonder about Pitbull Palin’s understanding of our nation’s fundamental principal of the separation of church and state. If Governor Palin’s god’s plan includes the Alaskan Pipeline—what else does he or she have in the works for our country? For the world? Of all the arguments, criticisms, qualms and frailties surrounding Ms. Palin—it is this that is most terrifying: Her belief that she represents and speaks for God…With whose God does Sarah Palin have such a prophetic, pro-active relationship? The God of Abraham? Mohammed? St. Thomas Aquinas? Your God? My God?
