We may all be mortally screwed.
What many people lost sight of in the past few weeks since Sarah Palin quit as governor is the terrible danger she has left Alaska and the entire United States in. Did Sarah Palin quit in a moment of frustration at the treatment she perceived she got at the hands of her detractors? She had been after all, the darling of conservatives everywhere. But, did she even stop to think about the danger she was thereby letting us all in for?
Conservative men and women everywhere drooled over Palin's attractive sexy school m'arm looks, aided and abetted with lot's of winks, coy glances, flirtatious smirks, cheerleader grins and 'Pit Bull with Liptick' references. I've had completely sane and sensible men and women say to me, "Man! I really like the way that Sarah Palin expresses herself! She's so sensible and down to earth and all"
They sometimes, even often, say such things even after hearing something she may say like,
(From her resignation speech):
“Democracy depends on you, and that is why — that’s why our troops are willing to die for you. So how about in honor of the American soldier, you quit makin’ things up.”
(Or, like from her interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News):
"What's more than I thought would be is, we're hearing a lot of good rhetoric. A lot of this is wrapped in good rhetoric, but we're not seeing those actions, and this many months into the new administration, quite disappointed, quite frustrated with not seeing those actions to rein in spending, slow down the growth of government. Instead, Sean it's the complete opposite. It's expanding at such a large degree that if Americans aren't paying attention, unfortunately, our country could evolve into something that we do not even recognize, certainly that is so far from what the founders of our country had in mind for us."
(Or, like from her statement on the health care reform debate):
"The America I know and love is not one in which my parents or my baby with Down Syndrome will have to stand in front of Obama's 'death panel' so his bureaucrats can decide, based on a subjective judgment of their 'level of productivity in society,' whether they are worthy of health care, Such a system is downright evil,"
Conservatives sure seem to get a perception of Palin's marvelous intellectual acuity from reading or hearing what she says, which seems beyond the comprehension of most of us. That is understandable. When Katie Couric asked Palin which newspapers and magazines she read, Palin answered "Oh, I don't know, all of 'em". Boy, the rest of us sure can't match that! It probably would have taken her far too long to list them I'm sure. That is the reason we find a lot of what Palin says so puzzling and nonsensical. We just ain't as smart and well read as she is by golly! I mean, who could be?
But now with her resignation, the real issue is the grave danger we all suddenly find ourselves in - and it all seems to be Sarah Palin's fault.
For example, who in the world will now be on the alert and watching Russia from their house in Alaska? Certainly not Sean Parnell, the new governor. He's far too busy, besides I've been told he actually lives in the governor's mansion in Juneau, a long, long way from, and not at all in sight of Russia as Palin's house was said to be.
And, what in the world will happen if, Heaven forbid, Vladimir Putin should ever again rear his ugly head as Sarah warned? Goodness knows, there can be no one else like Sarah Palin with the alertness, ability and experience to deal with that ugly scenario. Especially seeing as he, as Sarah says, has to fly directly over Alaska to get to our country.
Some even call her 'inexperienced', but never forget that Sarah Palin actually attended school in Moscow . . . . Idaho. Yes, indeed, Idaho I know, but it IS a 'Moscow' nonetheless. And she ran an entire town in Alaska of over 6,000 people too as mayor. Don't forget that. Ubetcha.
So now, with her resignation we have lost the one person with the acuity, the alertness, the experience and the intellectual proficiency to protect us all. God help us all!
I surely do hope all Sarah's enemies are happy now!
