Geraldine Ferraro are you happy now?

Not since the Washington Wizards selected Kwame Brown as the 1st overall pick in the 2001 NBA Draft have I been this confused. John McCain actually wants us to believe that after meeting Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, “twice” ,she is qualified to be Vice President? This is the person that will take over the Presidency if an emergency arises. After meeting her “twice” he trusts this former beauty queen to control the button with the Nuclear Weapons? Who is this Gov. Sarah Palin anyway? If the only thing I hear about you is how “Hot” you are, then there is a problem.

Let’s take a look at some Sarah Palin highlights:

*Elected as Governor of Alaska in December 2006 (she has been Gov. less than 2 years).

*Chairwoman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 – 2004 (she resigned from this position after less than a full year of service).

*Served as a two term Mayor of Wasilla Alaska (estimated population in 2003 was 6,715).

*Served two terms on the Wasilla City Council (In January 2005 the city opened a Home Depot and Lowes).

*Worked as a sports reporter for a local Anchorage television station (she covered such events as the Iditarod dog-sled race).

*A former point guard and captain on her high school basketball team (maybe she should challenge Obama to a game of 21).

Not since Jimmy Stewart starred in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington have we seen the most unlikely of politicians. Senator McCain wants to showcase Palin as a reformer that will clean up Washington. She is going to use her city council experience to turn around the economy; her experience as Governor to fight the war on terror and her experience as Chairwoman of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission to deal with our dependency on foreign oil. I hope people didn’t think McCain selected her strictly for her good looks. She is going to take Washington by storm!!! Yeah right, and I’m running for Governor of North Carolina. Palin is simply on the ticket because she is a woman. McCain heard Obama’s acceptance speech and almost passed out. When he woke up, he realized tornado Obama hit Denver hard. He was going to need something powerful to take out a natural disaster. Like Doug Flutie in one of the greatest college football games ever, he threw a hail mary. He decided to go after delusional ….oops.. dissatisfied Clinton supporters and independents. Only time will tell if this blatant gamble will win him votes. In the meanwhile, it’s going to be hilarious watching the Republicans turn Gov. Palin into Margaret Thatcher. Stay-tuned!!!!

What's sad, Palin said she was a Christian. Everything she does is talke negative and make speaches that divide the country. I am happy that we have smart people voting. A vp who is not reading, don't know too much, or what the vp job is about, we would be in trouble. Many of us know what happens to employees who have supervisors that are NOT qualified for the job. The employees suffer and so does the business.
