Smart Liberal and Female


This Small Town Girl is Highly Insulted.

I’ll preface this with I think Ruben Navarette Jr. is an idiot.  You know who else I think is an idiot?  Sarah Palin.  The whole premise of this article irritated and insulted me beginning with the title…”Sarah Palin understands small-town America.” 

Really?  Does she?  I’m not so sure about that.  How often did Sarah Palin talk about small town America?  Did she talk about the issues facing rural small town America?  No.  No she didn’t.  I’m from rural small town America.  I graduated with 48 other kids from a small town in rural Minnesota (and that’s with 1 not graduating).  You know what I did after college, moved!  Why?  Because there are no jobs!  Why are there no jobs?  I truly believe part of the problem is the lack of high speed Internet.  If you do not have the technology you can not attract business.  If you can’t attract businesses you won’t grow employment.  If you don’t grow jobs, your young college educated kids run off to the city for work and maybe visit on holidays!  I don’t remember Sarah giving much of that lip service, do you?

Another problem facing rural America…education.  Schools are expensive.  They can not afford to offer AP classes, foreign language classes, or other choices.  Without choices how do you attract young educated reproducing professionals?  You can’t!  I would just like to point out that if they had the infrastructure they could at least offer some satellite classes.  Do you remember Sarah Palin talking about this?  Me either!

Then Ruben goes on to say that we just don’t get Sarah Palin or small town values.  I think he’s wrong.  Dead wrong infact.  I think Ruben doesn’t get that most Americans share the same values.  We want time with our families.  We want our hard earned money to allow us a decent home, in a decent neighborhood, and good schools.  We want to feel safe in our homes, and safe when we send our kids to school.  We want our children to have a better life with more opportunities than we had.

Franken Takes the Lead

Al Franken has taken the lead for the first time in the hotly contested Senate race in Minnesota.  My joy has apparently stirred some people up.  Guess what?  That brings me even more joy.  I find it amusing that Republicans cry that Franken has no experience to be 1 0f 100, but yet they had no qualms about Sarah Palin being second in line to push the damn button.  And don’t give me she was a damn mayor and governor.  That’s pathetic and you know it. 

I will also admit I am not a Norm Coleman fan.  I was a Paul Wellstone Minnesota Democrat.  I truly believe he was one of the great politicians of our time.  Honest.  Open.  Fair.  Concerned about his state and country.  Norm Coleman won after desecrating Senator Wellstone’s funeral.  He ran a dirty race while he was alive, so it shouldn’t have been surprising.  I will not be sorry to see Norm Coleman leave the Senate and vacate Paul Wellstone’s seat.

McCain on Palin…

John McCain’s response to if he would support Governor Sarah Palin if she runs for President in 2012, “I can’t say something like that. We’ve got some great other young governors. I think you’re going to see the governors assume a greater leadership role in our Republican Party.”

He then went on to mention Tim Pawlenty, Governor of Minnesota,  and Jon Huntsman, Governor of Utah.

I’d like to give my own interpretation of this….”Would I vote for Sarah Palin?  Hell NO!!  Only if pigs fly out of my ass.  Not only is she stupid, she’s not qualified.  I only picked her as a publicity stunt and to energize my right wing Crazy Christian I hate everyone base.  And man, I still lost.  So screw her.  Besides, Caribou Barbie spends too much money on clothes and doesn’t even know which continent Iran is on.  How on earth can she bomb it if she doesn’t know where it’s at?”

I’m sorry, I just couldn’t resist.  Actually I’m not a bit sorry.  So there!

Pretty Expensive Pittbull…

and lets not forget the cost of her lipstick!

I’m absolutely amazed at the cost of outfitting Sarah Palin and crew.  The RNC spent $180,000 on clothing for the Palin family.  Lisa Kline, Palin’s fashion stylist, raked in a cool $55,000.   And apparently the McCain Campaign spent $110,000 on her hair and make-up people.

Now I’m not sure about anyone else, but that’s some pretty spendy hair and make-up.

Ring. Ring. Ring.

I’ll admit, while I found this story to be a little amusing I can’t say I blame her.  Apparently Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) took a call from President Elect Obama, thought it was a prank and promptly hung up the phone.  Then she took a call from his Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, and hung up on him too.  It took a call from the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, Congressman Howard Berman, and a test to make it happen.

Now we all had a good laugh at Sarah Palin when she took a call from a Canadian radio station pretending to be the French President…so I can’t say I blame Representative Ros-Lehtinen!

Obama on his Way to Georgia…Nope, but they’ve got Ludacris?

Another little tid bit that makes you double check the validity of the source.  Apparently Ludacris is on his way to campaign for Jim Martin.  I’ll admit this perplexes me a bit…what’s up with Georgia??

Although, I guess I’d rather have Ludacris than Sarah Palin…but hey that’s just me.

Are We Stuck with Her Forever?

Every time I think I’ve heard the last of Sarah Crazy Ass Palin, there’s another story about her.  I tell myself don’t read it, don’t write about it, but then I find myself unable to resist. 

I guess they say all press is good press, but I’m not sure I agree!  I can only hope the fascination with one of my least favorite people wears out shortly.
