America's Great Hope
Is this a joke? I see the growing infatuation that the American public has with this obscure politician and I think, "is this really what the PRESIDENTIAL election has come down to?" Everybody loves Sarah Palin. Democrats are jumping ship left and right to join the Republicans because of Sarah Palin. McCain's normal idiocy seems to be completely forgiven with his VP pick. McCain no longer has to campaign. All he has to do is bring out Sarah Palin and everyone goes wild. Nobody cares about the issues anymore. Nobody cares about the stumbling economy. Nobody cares about the war in Iraq. Nobody cares about health care. Because somehow, someway, Sarah Palin will fix it all. Magically. Because she will be VP. What?!?! When was the last time a Vice President did anything worth mentioning? Why is everyone so enamored with her? Guess what? If you vote for Palin, you get McCain, too. And he's the one who will actually be doing things. Remember? He's the one running for President. I watched part of a town hall meeting he had in Florida this morning. All he talked about was Sarah Palin and how her husband races 2000 miles across Alaska on a snowmobile. How is this going to fix this country's problems? Doesn't anybody else see it? I FEEL LIKE I'M TAKING CRAZY PILLS!!!!! I'm not going to get into her political history (although, I think it's worth looking into if you're unaware. She's not the squeaky clean politician everyone thinks she is). That's irrelevant to the point I'm making. The point is that we are in a campaign to choose the next President of the United States of America. I hope the voting public can wake up and realize that there are way more important things to base your vote on than the person running alongside the candidate.
