Puffy McBush has done the democratic party a great favor. He has essentially given up, but decided he'd grab a little piece of history for himself as the first republican ticket to include someone other than a white man.
Yes, I really think they have given up. Why else would they chose an extremist right wing fundamentalist who has almost no experience whatsoever in public service to be their VP choice. Makes no sense.
McCain needed to pick an experienced solid VP ready to take over the oval office should he expire. . . the man is 72 yrs old. He needed to appeal to the progressive faction of the right wing and the less progressive faction of the left if he was going to take votes from the dems. But nope, he chose to . . . fuck, I don't know what the hell he chose to do. It makes no sense. This is a woman with four young kids and a newborn baby. What are the far right family values folks going to think of her running for office at such a critical family time in her life? Contrast the family values of the republican ticket with those of the dems. Now, don't get me wrong, I aint no family values whack job, but there are millions in this country who are. They might just look at the beauty of the Obama and Biden families and think again.
It is going to be fascinating to watch as the republican ticket vaporizes. . . Let's get real, Joe Biden against a complete newbie in a debate?! And how about Puffy's claim that our man Barack is not qualified to be president? HA! So your Alaskan uber-fundamentalist housewife is?! Wow, it's almost too good to be true for a political junkie like me. I get to watch my party stomp the republicans in a presidential race and at the same time get the thrill of one of the most entertaining contests of the last . . . well hell, what other presidential race could possibly compare?
Sit back, enjoy the show.
But don't get complacent! We need to get out the vote. We need to knock on doors, register MORE voters and make this thing happen big-time.
