OK, my rant is out of the way. Oh wait, there's the $700 billion bailout that we the taxpayers have to pay for. It's not bad enough we are spending $10 billion a month in Iraq, now we're going to condemn our children, and our children's children, and more to financial disparity. Can it get any worse? Ross Perot told us back in the 90's when he ran for President that our children would be the first generation to do WORSE than us. Any of us with children in the 18-30 age range know they are staying at home longer then ever before. They are not able to get established liked we did. It's next to impossible for them to have their own life and be comfortable. What Congress did this week, sealed the fate of our grandchildren, and probably their children. George Bush, and all the guilty parties will have long left this Earth by the time the "Red" is gone from this thing.
OK, now I'm done ranting. Let's talk about Sarah Palin. She's her won worst enemy, she needs to shut up. The more she talks, the more the polls lean away from the Republican ticket. She's not helping her cause at all. American voters are becoming acutely aware of her complete inability to run the country if the need should arise. My suggestion, she needs to drop the librarian look. Drop the hair, get some sexier glasses (or hey maybe wear contacts). She dresses like Hillary Clinton. At this point she has nothing to lose. When she is in front of the camera, she needs to look like the girl next door. Her campaign people need to focus on her beauty and sex appeal. Wear something a bit more revealing, open a button or two, show a little leg. Sounds very sexist, right? It is, I'll give ya that. But if she wants to capture the votes of your average hormonally driven male voter, she needs to turn up the heat, way up. I'm almost shocked this hasn't been tried this yet.
On a lighter note, I think a really cool turn of roles would be for Sarah Palin to guest star on SNL as Tina Fey. Play all of her skits as she would. I think it would be hilarious.
As for this weeks VP debate, WHO CARES! Being Vice President of the United States is the easiest job on this planet. You get a cushy pad over at that Naval Observatory in Bethesda. You get paid to basically do nothing, just be on standby in case the President dies, is killed, or otherwise incapacitated. Lest we forget that John McCain is 72 years old! Oh, and you get Secret Service protection for the rest of your life. Hey, you can't beat that with a stick. Seriously, I mean, take a hard look at the VP's of the past 30 years. How does history remember them? Barely, that's about it, they are insignificant in presidential history. Most of us, if asked who was VP in any given year, would not know the correct answer, it's that unimportant. They have no role in day-to-day operations. They got their 15 minutes of fame by arguing the correct pronunciation of potato, and Al Gore "inventing" the Internet. Just for the record, Al Gore did NOT invent the internet. It's been around since the 1960's as a DOD (DARPA) program. Al Gore just opened the door for the rest of the world to have it. He may actually be the most memorable VP in our history. I bet if you ask 10 random people to name something Dick Chaney has done while VP, I bet 7 of them will say "shot someone while hunting".
Too bad for OJ, poor guy. I guess his luck had to run out sooner or later. This whole thing about stealing his stuff back is all trumped up. I think he just wanted his glove back (from the first trial).
