Governor Palin proudly states that she was against the "Bridge to Nowhere." In a recent ad by the Obama campaign Governor Palin is shown holding up a "Bridge to Nowhere" shirt with a big grin indicating her support for the project. What are we supposed to believe? What Governor Palin tells us to believe or what we see with our own eyes? I submit that Governor Palin not only supported the "Bridge to Nowhere" but she is personally a bridge to nowhere.
Ever since her carefully orchestrated appearances before, during, and after the Republican convention more questions than answers have arisen about who and what she is, and what she stands for. No one, not even the McCain campaign, believes their mantra that Governor Palin is more experienced than Senator Obama, and she is ready to take over the presidency. Any woman who describes herself as a pit bull with lipstick is more prepared to referee a so-called professional wrestling match then she is to become the vice president of the United States. The McCain campaign is well aware of it and has limited all access to her so that she doesn't put her foot in her political mouth.
In a sense Governor Palin is a pawn in the Republican effort to make the election about liking and identifying with people as opposed to determining who would make the best president and solve the vast array of problems facing this country. She is a very willing pawn who "dragged her infant child" onto national TV during the Republican convention. Was I not supposed to make reference to her family? Well, if she's going to bring her baby and put it on display then she's made her family a national issue.
It's inconceivable to think of what would happen to this country if Senator McCain became president and then were disabled or very sick. Can anyone imagine this self-styled hockey mom sitting down with Vladimir Putin discussing the fate of the world. How could she address the significant financial problems this country is facing when she doesn't even understand the role of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. I could go on and on, but that would be tedious. My only hope is that she doesn't go on and on because that would be perilous for this country.
