She IS “The Bridge to Nowhere”

She really IS the bridge to nowhere

Sarah Palin landed like a stray inkblot on the political page of my life; and as her stain spread on the unblemished vellum, I could only say, “Huh?”

The evidence has mounted daily…

“I just told the Congress, ‘Thanks, but no thanks.  If we wanted a bridge, we’d build it ourselves.'”  She took the money, didn’t build the bridge, and despite her denials, is considered “The Earmark Queen of Alaska”.

“I’ll try to find ya some, and I’ll bring ’em to ya.”  See it here:

Calling her a pitbull with lipstick is an insult to an already much-maligned breed.  Actually, American Pit Bulls are amazing dogs in many ways:

Now we find out to our shock and dismay that, according to an Alaska state government inquiry, Gov. Palin abused her power in a personal vendetta arising out of her sister’s messy divorce.  I am so flabbergasted and confounded, I may pass a small primate out of my aft-quarters.  Here’s the whole story, courtesy of The Huffington Post:

McCain’s choice of Palin was right up there with his toadying up to John Hagee earlier this year.  Cynical, calculated, designed to throw red meat in front of the social conservative base and attract disaffected Hillary devotees.  Never mind that if his ticker gives out, “Saracuda” moves into the Oval Office.

In which case, sadly for this country and the greater world beyond, Sarah Palin truly would be “the bridge to nowhere”.  Or oblivion.

Don’t we have enough problems to dig out from under?  Is the perfect storm of crises in which we’re awash not sufficient cause for John McCain to recant his choice?  We’ve already got The Man Who Broke the World to contend with.  We don’t need The Man Who Smashed It Into Little Bits In a Fit of Ego.

Sorry if this isn’t my most elegant post, but I have another job.  I do this for fun and personal enrichment, and because I care about my family, my community, my country, my planet.

May the Higher Power of your choice light your way to a great day.

We’re starting to get global feedback, and that gives me hope.
