If Nathan Deal can become the Governor of Georgia; the Right will find away to make Sarah Palin the next Republican/Tea Party President of the United States.

BuiltToLast, the “Right” does not make Presidents, the plutocracy does. as I said a few days back, in the words of the immortal Bruce Sprinsteen (via Bo Diddley), if the plutocrats think she’s the one, then “….whaoooooooooo, she’s the one…”. personally, as I noted yesterday, she’s a staking horse, and her “value” to the right is as a fundraiser and tomato lobber. she’ll get “15 minutes” of convention fame, but she’s not POTUS material and everybody knows it (maybe even Sarah Palin).

The Big Question that’s looming on the political horizon:

Is Grover Norquist right that REPUBLICANS can win a government shutdown this time around because unlike ‘95 they have an extremely powerful propaganda organ at its disposal in FOX News?

According to Norquist, the ‘95 shutdown was spun by a liberal media as a “Republican shutdown”. This time, he thinks, it will be different.

If anyone ever doubted the dumbing down of America, look no further than the possibility of Sarah Palin for president in 2012. Any candidate of her caliber running for this office many years ago would have been a next to impossible event. If any further proof of this dumbing down is needed, just look at the Tea Party lug nuts supporting her.

Sarah Palin running would be like handing the election to Obama. I welcome it. Frankly, I encourage it. We know that in national elections, she can’t win. She dragged McCain down, she trails in current polls behind Obama in popularity (I know right!), and she is clearly not intelligent enough to handle the office.

Granted he would have made the current boob, Bud Selig, look magnificent in comparison. But all he could have done in that role was to further screw up the National Pastime.

At least Dover AFB would have had a lot less activity. (If you catch my drift, chickenhawks…)

Biden has said at least twice as many completely ignorant, moronic comments than Palin has. His intelligence is not a bit higher than hers, and probably a good bit lower. But he’s also got a D by his name, so few people seem to care. He said JOBS is a three letter word, he said FDR got on TV to talk about the stock market crash (before FDR was elected and any President had appeared on TV), and innumerable others.

I agree—he seems remarkably BS-free most of the time.

Funny, my criticism of Biden has, generally, been from the left. As a senator he backed some pretty crummy, anti-consumer legislation. But I warmed up to him when he was running for president last time around, myself; and I share your personal fondness for his overall demeanor.

And I think the world owes him a debt of gratitude for his classic wisecrack at Rudy Giuliani’s expense (that being how every sentence out of rudy’s mouth can be summarized as “a noun, a verb, and 9/11.”) in doing so, Biden made it OK to poke fun at those who attempt to make 9/11 the all-purpose conversation stopper.

I’d like to hear more from Sarah about her conclusions regarding Michele Obama and how she got her wrong impressions about whites from listening to rants from racists all her life.

I’m no body language expert but when asked if she could beat President Obama, Sarah actually “flinched, looked down, and closed her eyes briefly” as she answered during the interview. She doesn’t even believe her own hype and is simply riding the gravy train for as long as she can stay in the public eye. Nonetheless, I would LOVE to see her run.

Re, Mrs. Palin’s [alleged] birth certificate, I haven’t seen it, have you? Furthermore, when speaking about her childhood awhile back, she slipped and said too much. She said that they lived near the Canadian border, and that her mom would sometimes take the kids across the border to see the doctor. If getting the babies a shot for an ear infection is cheaper in Canada, I’m thinking so is childbirth. She might actually be a *gasp* CANADIAN posing as an American. We can’t let this happen!

I’m old enough to remember all the quips making the rounds when a B-list former actor from California was making noises about a possible run for the presidency. The “Bedtime for Bonzo” jokes abounded. It wasn’t funny to those folks a couple of years later. I think it’s wise to take a Palin run seriously. The most recent election proved that there is an abundance of people who will vote for a candidate expressing extreme conservative values and that a candidate’s ignorance and even possible criminality is no bar to that.
