Did America Dodge A Bullet On Election Day?

Maverick! Real America. Hockey Mom. Joe Six-Pack. Joe The Plumber. Executive Experience. Faith. Palling Around With Terrorists. Socialism. Number One Liberal. Sarah “Plain” Palin’s ignoble campaign can be summed up in a few catchy words. I’m just glad she won’t get the chance to speak any of them from the Oval Office. She probably would not have brought on the end of the world, but she would have destroyed my spirit. You Betcha!

p.s.

A Fox News reporter on the Bill O’Reilly Show says Sarah Palin didn’t know Africa was a continent. But there’s no corroboration. Maybe she is that ignorant, but I think many Republicans want to shift all the blame for losing the White House over to her.

Sarah Palin, The Anti-Intellectual

Like George W. Bush, Sarah Palin (I keep typing “plain” mistakenly) is an anti-intellectual. She comes across as completely incurious about economic issues and about international politics in general. She obtained her first passport only last year. And she spouts mindless uninformed opinions on important scientific issues; for example, mocking the use of fruit flies in genetic research. A periodic reading of the science section of a news magazine would have educated her on the basics. Slogans like “Joe Sixpack”, “Hockey Mom”, and “Joe The Plumber” aren’t a substantive political platform, they’re advertizing jargon. You Betcha!
