Thursday night Sarah Palin talked with Neil Cavuto about the final night of the democrat convention in Charlotte. When asked by Neil she basically says she’s worn out from all of it. Who can blame her. The democrat convention is like looking into an alternate universe. Nothing is based in reality.
They also discuss the need for women voters to wake up and realize who is really at war with them, and Sarah notes the racist nature of the convention, and one of the campaign buttons saying “once you vote black, you never go back.”
Can you imagine if someone in Tampa had been wearing a button that said “white is right” or something like that. Holy crap!
One more observation: Anytime I see a piece of Obama campaign paraphernalia, I’m stuck by the fact that in the last 100 years or so, only two politicians have had their own symbols: Barack Obama and that guy over in Germany with the funny mustache who was in office from 1933 until he achieved room temperature. It’s a reminder that until Obama come along, we considered politicians mere employees. Temporary employees at that. Not messiahs or false gods.
Neil asks Sarah about a sad little comment professional gigolo and tax cheat John Kerry made, throwing her name out there as he attacked Mitt Romney. This isn’t the first time John Kerry has attempted humor and fell flat on his face, insulting everyone’s intelligence.
In late 2006 Kerry attacked the military by implying that one either gets a good education or ends up being stuck in Iraq.
You know, education, if you make the most of it, if you study hard and you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, uh, you, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.
This prompted blogger Dan Riehl to write on his blog:
The bastard should be tried for treason and shot!
Frankly, after the treasonous acts of both John Kerry and Jane Fonda, during the Vietnam war, I can’t believe both weren’t tried for treason and shot together. But what the hell, our current President and Attorney General facilitated the mass murder of 300-400 Mexican citizens and at least two federal agents and they’ll never receive an ounce of punishment. Not even a harshly worded letter from the United Nations! The whole lot should be sent to a Supermax prison and be left to rot, but I digress.
I got a bit tickled when Sarah said Kerry “diminished himself by even mentioning my name“. Fact is, those two have tangled before. In fact, when Governor Palin, as Commander-in-Chief, was visiting her troops in Kosovo she took a swing at Kerry [after he made an idiotic remark about her] and connected.
Of course this gives us a chance to remind readers that as Governor of Alaska and Commander-in-Chief of the Alaska National Guard, The Alaska Air Guard, and the Alaska State Defense Force, Sarah Palin received regular high level national security briefings, because of Alaska’s proximity not only to Russia, but the Far East in general.
Alaska is the nation’s first line of defense against any attacks coming from that direction, thus the Governor of the state must be uniquely prepared. Alaska was invaded by the Japanese during WWII and on Governor Palin’s watch, the 176 Air Control Squadron routinely escorted Russian Bear bombers out of Alaskan air space. In 2008 the 176th Air Wing won the United States Air Force Outstanding Unit Award. Governor Palin shared command and control of the air wing.
It’s also fun to remind folks that one can not only SEE Russia from certain points in Alaska, one can actually WALK to Russia [or swim] depending on the time of year!
Another set of good observations on today’s political climate from Sarah, and another swing and a miss by John Kerry.
