Aaaaaargh!


I’m sorry I couldn’t help it. Here’s a rant on current issues. You betcha’ that this woman is driving me mad. Sarah Palin is on the way to becoming Vice-President of the United States. Where is this supposed to lead? Now I don’t get to vote in the U.S., but with the phenomenon of globalization, shouldn’t all citizen of the world be concerned with what is happening in the country that gave us the Iraq War and a recent global financial crisis? 

I respect that each individual has different political opinions and should make an educated decision on whether to vote Democrat or Republican. But… And this is the part that is making me pull my hair. How can someone in their right mind, consider placing their vote with McCain when it implies that Sarah “JoeSixPack” Palin is to become Vice-President??? I mean this woman has the potential to become the next U.S. president should old McCain not make it through his term. This woman can’t even pronounce Eye-Raq and Eye-Ran properly! But let’s not be too quick to judge her. After all she has all the competencies to advise maverick McCain on matters of foreign policy for example. Come on, she can see Russia from her front porch! She’s delusional. 

During a recent interview with Couric on why she only gotten a passport last year and if it was revealing her lack of interest in the world, Palin replied: “I’m not one of those who maybe came from a background of, you know, kids who perhaps graduate college and their parents get them a passport, and give them a backpack and say ‘Go off and travel the world’. No, I’ve worked all my life, in fact I’ve usually had 2 jobs all my life until I had kids. I was not a part of, I guess, that culture. The way that I have understood the world is through education, through books, through mediums that have provided me a lot of perspective on the world.”

Ha, but they did send her to community college in Hawaii, the U.S. state with the highest cost of living in the country. Plus who is she to judge travelers. Not everyone gets their travel expenses paid by the mommy bank. Most young people who have been around the globe worked hard for it, often saving up for it through several side jobs. This madwoman is supposed to comprehend the global challenges we’re facing? How can she? When you are abroad, you gain new perspectives and broader intellectual understandings. The experiences you have when you meet new cultures and their people cannot be replaced by TV or books. Yes, theory is important. But, especially in her position, shouldn’t she practice what she preaches. Her discourse is always about patriotism, but how can she not be proud of her country? It’s the only one she’s ever known. Aaargh! She annoys me in so many ways. 

"According to a recent poll, 61% of people surveyed said they would rather see Sarah Palin in a bikini than Pamela Anderson. Although 99% said they would rather see Pamela Anderson as vice president." --Jay Leno

I hear you!

If people aren't going to vote for Obama, then let's hope they write-in Pamela Anderson.
