Presenting… Sarah Palin

These videos speak for themselves. You should be terrified by the idea that if McCain is elected, Palin could very well become President of the United States. She is completely unqualified and the McCain campaign has hid her from the press precisely because she’s unintelligible. By the way, Palin’s favorability numbers are going down the drain now that more people realize the truth. McCain’s poll numbers have been sliding as well.

NYTimes.com Double Click Dictionary Search

I just discovered a feature on NYTimes.com that has apparently been there for well over a year. When I come across a difficult word, I usually want to look it up. So I double-click the word to highlight it quickly so I can copy-and-paste it. Well I just did that on an article at the New York Times website and it automatically opened a popup window with the definition of the word. I thought that was very nice functionality. It saved me time and it was exactly what I wanted to do – look up the word.

Economic Crisis

Reading about everything that’s happening with the banks is kind of depressing. How the hell did the sh*t hit the fan so hard? The government just bailed out stinking AIG with a $85 billion loan. And all the pundits and experts think we haven’t seen the last of this crisis. When these companies mess up, we need to bail them out with taxpayer money? Or should the Fed keep printing more of our fiat currency, devalue the dollar, and cause inflation? This shows exactly why there needs to be regulation, because when they f*ck up this bad, it affects the whole economy. Deregulation? Free market principles? What the hell do you call the goverment buying up and controlling major financial institutions?

McCain and Palin are Just Talking Points (and Liars)

It’s pretty ridiculous. All they do is spew rehearsed and preplanned talking points. And they lie. They lie like crazy about everything – their own records, Obama, everything. Every interview I’ve seen where the reporter challenged McCain or Palin, they start stuttering, stonewalling, they lie, or end up repeating the same talking points even if it doesn’t answer the question. When they hit something they haven’t rehearsed before, it’s like they don’t know what to do, because no one told them what to say in those situations.

When you can’t articulate your own views and have to memorize things you’re told to say by political strategists, you’re not competent enough to be President or Vice President. I know Obama does the same thing, all politicians do, but at least when he’s thrown a curve ball, he answers with clarity and specifically addresses the actual question. That, to me, signifies a much greater level of intelligence, competence, and initiative.
