The 2008 election is just around the corner and I have yet to make up my mind which party to rock with although I have been leaning toward the left. John McCain, however, got me excited when he announced Sarah Palin as his running mate. She seems like someone that could feel our pain. She’s a middle class who is married to a production worker. She has five kids. One is pregnant at seventeen and one requires special needs. We heard some buzz about her accomplishments as a governor of Alaska. She seems decent and not as evil as some of the republican old heads. Yet last night she released her demon on her acceptance speech.
The evilness in her smile and sarcasm when criticizes senator Barack Obama irked me. She was so hostile in her speech. I was not even sure why she was disrespecting the community organizers, but I am sure they are way more decent then most of the politicians, particularly Mitt Romney and Rudy Giuliani. In his speech, Romney said, “Just like you, there has never been a day when I was not proud to be an American.” How low do you have to go to attack a candidate’s spouse? Then again, you can’t really take any of these guys’ words seriously, especially when Guiliani claimed, “Sarah Palin has more experience than the entire Democratic ticket combined.”
I was hoping that Palin would stand out from the guys. I was looking for some real substances instead of lies and tough talks. After last night’s speech, the only thing that is different between Palin and and Guiliani is the lipstick.
