Every time I read about Sarah Palin, I shudder in disbelief that someone like her, ignorant and intolerant, could ever be considered a candidate for the Presidency of the United States. America, I have to believe, is having us on...a big laugh at the expense of the rest of the world....at least I hope so!
How is it possible that someone who can't name a newspaper, who considers herself a foreign affairs expert on the basis that on a clear day in Alaska she can see Russia from her bedroom window (or something like that) and who believes that our one true ally is......North Korea, how is it that such a person could be in her current position?
Why have grassroots Republicans embraced her with such naked enthusiasm when senior party leaders reach for the garlic and crucifix at the very mention of her name? Is it really possible that she could actually make it to the White House in the lead position? Or, is it that the American voter enjoys her small-minded rhetoric in the same way they love and accept Joan River's outrageous outbursts, but wouldn't necessarily want her as President?
Sarah Palin strikes me as someone who, when John McCain's people knocked on her door, immediately saw the main chance and grasped it with both hands. But her ego knows no bounds and the woman now sees herself as the saviour of America. The rest of the world can save itself, as she is not too sure where it is.
Sarah Palin lives in a la-la world of her own creation and it would be awful if enough voters were sucked in to take her all the way to the White House. Surely it is not possible?
