Essentially, you are the type of person who would actually vote for George W. Bush TWICE if you believe the McCain Campaign:

  1. Decided after the vetting process that Sarah Palin had a 17 year old unwed daughter that was 5 months pregnant and concluded that she was just the quality VP choice needed for him win against Barack Obama.
  2. Knew that Palin’s daughters boyfriend and unborn child’s father, Levi Johnston, had a MySpace page that proclaimed he’s a redneck and “don’t want kids” and decided it was O.K. for him to keep it up and going well after the pick was made/announced.
  3. Decide to (and no doubt through Sarah Palins direction ) tell Johnston to abruptly take the cite down AFTER the press finds out about it and reports on it.

Quite simply, McCain shot from the hip on this decision. The same type of hip shot that Bush did when he choose people like Michael Brown to head FEMA. Or Benard Kerik to head THE FRICKIN DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY.

McCain nor his people in NO Way knew of these issues when they chose Palin.¬† I DON’T CARE WHAT THEY SAY.

Republicans are the kings of steer. They are briefing their troops on how to answer questions about Palin. If they bothered vetting Palin in the first place surely they would have decided that she was just too risky a pick in a time when they needed a home run pick. Plain and simple, they did a horrible job of vetting the choice. YOU CANNOT TELL ME THERE IS NOT ANOTHER REPUBLICAN WOMAN OUT THERE THAT DOES NOT HAVE THIS KIND OF BAGGAGE WHO WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN A BETTER VP CHOICE THEN PALIN!

Take a look at the product the GOP has put out as it’s finest during the Bush Administration:

GEORGE W. BUSH

MICHAEL BROWN

DICK CHANEY

DONALD RUMSFIELD

LINDA CHAVEZ

PAUL WOLFOWITZ

TOM DELAY

ALBERTO GONZALEZ

So many others…

These are the types of people we will continue to have placed in positions of the federal government that affect our very lives if John McCain is elected President.

Forget about Palin’s kids. It’s her political background that links her to the list of fools above:

  • Troopergate
  • Firing police chiefs because town businesses felt he was hurting their business ENFORCING THE LAW!
  • Saying she’s against earmarks when her time as Mayor AND Governor was/is marked by her lobbying efforts for and receiving earmarks.
  • Campaigning for and eliminating funding for teen pregnancy prevention programs and instead spouting off about “abstinence” is enough for teen pregnancy prevention.

Which brings me back to her kids.

Palin has made a political career of spouting off about how she is against abortion and funding in schools that teach teens about safe sex. It’s because of these types of stances that makes Palin’s 17 year old daughter being pregnant because she did not practice absitnence nor safe sex a ligitimate topic for voters know about while conducting their own “vetting” process in choosing who to vote for for President. The very center of the voter vetting process of John McCain now begs the question, “What was McCain Thinking?”

For some reason, Republicans refuse to understand that we are in the age of the internet. You can’t just come out with a press conference or have cronnies go on Sunday talk shows and successfully gloss over factual dirt that is reported on the internet like you could in the 90’s and earlier times. BECAUSE THERE WAS NO MYSPACE AND OTHER TYPES OF INTERNET MEDIA VENUES DURING THOSE TIMES¬† LIKE THERE ARE TODAY!
