FROM YOUR OWN BACKYARD: ALASKAN MAN TELLS ALL ABOUT PALIN

by MullOverThis

This author claims to have known Governor Sarah Palin since 1972.  He too, identifies and speaks quite well for himself:

And, the co-horts claimed she has made accomplishments in education and the school systems.  Again, what are Sarah Palin’s accomplishments? 

Where are the letters from Alaskans who can chronicle Sarah Palin’s accomplishments?

PALIN: AMERICA’S INSURANCE POLICY

by MullOverThis

Ann Coulter penned an article, “THE BEST MAN TURNED OUT TO BE A WOMAN”.

I’m not surprised that ANN and other inner-cusp Repubs will justify this appointment at any cost.  The flags of sexism will continue to be posted wherever there is a legitimate challenge to Palin’s ability to be a decent mother to her THREE CONSIDERABLY UNDERAGE CHILDREN while she is supposed to be the Vice President of the United States.  Motherhood and family values are of utmost importance to the GOP platform. Palin’s appointment proves that for this possible administration, this is theory at best.  Let’s all work and fight for ideals and principles but not live them.

McCain’s need for a gun-toting, pro-life, tax-cutting young female GOP running mate outweighs any other concerns.  For instance, McCain’s age and medical history was not a priority in appointing a POTUS-ready running mate.  Did GOP nominee McCain get the memo that if he wins the election, he would be the oldest US President to enter office?  McCain should have made the readiness of his VP to lead this nation of utmost importance in his selection.  Whether or not McCain outlives Bristol is not the issue.  McCain is supposed to be planning for the good of our nation–“Country First”– right GOP? The average family has enough sense to have insurance policies in the event of death.  Palin, with two  more months of shaking hands, cramming and trying to learn the ropes, come November is supposed to be mature and ready, God-forbid, to be America’s payout. 

Otherwise, the idea of the small town girl who is not afraid to go against the grain and status quo to effectuate good is admirable.  Palin’s firm anti-abortion, pro-Christian beliefs are welcome.  Her youthfulness adds bliss to the equation.  If McCain wins takes us through the next four years, Palin will be ready to run for President AFTER her on-the-job training.  However, Republicans have been terribly hypocritical in this appointment with Palin’s substantial inexperience (a campaign theme against Nobama), and attempting to posit a mother of FIVE WITH FOUR UNDERAGE CHILDREN traipsing across this country and eventually the world, as the picture of family values in America.  No abortions, Dems.  That’s what matters.  Commitment to EFFECTIVE parenting, or at least having the appearance of the same, is not part of this platform.

Whew, I am ready for a Children First candidate.

A DREAM OR A NIGHTMARE: PRESIDENT SARAH PALIN

by MullOverThis

Senator John McCain, the Republican nominee for President of the United States of America, selected Sarah Palin, current governor of Alaska, as his running mate.  Sarah Palin is the woman that Senator McCain expects the American public to support as Vice President of the United States.  McCain must have missed the Vice Presidency job description briefing.  This individual will be the acting President if he became incapacitated, and the President if he dies in office.  The only critical questions are who are McCain’s advisers, what part of his foot did McCain use to make this decision, and who is going to play “mother” to Sarah Palin’s five children while she may be the Vice President of the United States for up to eight years. 

Governor Palin has been hammered throughout the media and across dining room tables all over this nation as the most fool-hearty Vice Presidential pick since Dan Quayle.  The thought of Sarah running this country–if McCain succumbed during his Presidential term–is equally humorous and frightening at the same time:  Not because she has no national experience or foreign policy experience.  Governor Palin is a Christian and vocal anti-abortioncide politician.   She was a small town mayor and is currently in her first term as an executive leader as the Alaskan Governor, and is only running for Vice President.  The Democratic Nominee for President, Senator Barack Obama, has only one completed US senatorial term under his belt, and no executive or foreign policy experience.  Yet eighteen million people and counting have fallen prey to his charisma, wisdom in hiring and following the counsel of advisers, consultants, and marketing/media experts, and personal leadership style.  So the alarm for “what in the world is happening to our country” had already sounded when we put our incumbent President in office.  Then we had the nerve to put him in office again.  We are to believe that the best of the hopefuls include Obama (the most competent thing we’ve seen in political pull-ups who at least has a real adult politician on his ticket, Senator Joseph Biden) who is running against someone who we hope doesn’t take an earthly exit while in office (McCain, coupled with someone who just came out of the birth canal, yippee Governor Palin).  Has John McCain ever heard of the expression “the pot calling the kettle black”?  Obviously Obama’s relative inexperience cannot be a further concern for the GOP when their VP pick is a glorified soccer mom who just woke up as a politician, and desperately needs a 2008 savvy hairdresser and stylist.

With McCain’s selection of Governor Palin, I have a serious noteworthy proposal.  He can continue to solicit the support of pro-Hilary Obama defectors by appointing my mom as the Secretary of State.  I promise McCain, fingers crossed and hope to die live, that he will not find any scandalous incriminating evidence in my mother’s closet.  Nope.  Nada.  Zilch.  She is good to go and excellent at diplomacy.  If Palin can manage her 9,000, and be suitable for Vice President, then certainly my mom is qualified with over 30 years in the medical field to be the Secretary of State.  By the way, she has not interviewed with MTV political commentators like Governor Palin, but she has watched enough CNN, MSNBC and FOX News and argued with the political pundits (unbeknownst to them) in her own family room.  And, trust me, she takes them down every time.  My mom would at least have enough sense to hire the right personnel, and take their advice.  McCain could speak to my mother–maybe even twice or three times which is considerably more than he bothered to spend with Governor Palin–to be oversecure that she is the right woman for the job.  And, the whip cream on top asssurance McCain would have is true feminists wouldn’t have to be alarmed about her defying the advances of women who have proven that they can do it all–work and be real mothers at the same time.  All of my mom’s children are grown adults. Sarah Palin is the one with five children, four of whom are under age 18. This nation should not have to look at Governor and hopefully never Vice President Sarah and wonder does she know where her children are today.  Oh yeah, their father, the hired nannies and secret service agents will have to nurture her young.

With all of the criticisms of Governor Palin as the GOP Vice Presidential pick, the absent critique,  which is of utmost concern to this blogger is, is this true feminism?  A mother of five (with four young children) so engaged in her career that she didn’t have enough sense to say “no” when she got the invitation to run all over the country campaigning and could possibly have to put her children on hold for the next four to eight years, is supposed to be the picture of family values.  REAL mothers don’t write paychecks to pay other people to be the principle caretakers of their children.  Governor Palin just allegedly had a son with Down’s Syndrome.  The first few years of a Down’s child’s life are the most critical for development and will largely predict his ability to grow to be personally independent.  So, to the wiseguys who thought Hilary supporters would be drawn to the GOP ticket because Governor Palin is a female missed it.  Hillary mothered Chelsea Clinton.  Well-rounded women who are not selfish hedonists take care of the basics first.  Young human beings who did not ask to be conceived and born have a right to have a mother who is perfectly capable of being a mother to them, do what she signed on to do when she gave birth to each of them.  Governor Palin needs to go somewhere and sit down instead of contributing to the reason why so many of our children continually become inept adults.

This appointment to the GOP ticket shows that McCain is in this to win at the cost of our nation’s future if something happens to him.  If his judgment led him to pick Palin, then my judgment leads me to pick anyone but him.  Hilary. Palin. They can’t even be typed in the same sentence, more or less compared.  Obama/Biden may win by default.  Regardless of how much pro-Hilary voters may not have wanted to choose Obama, no one in their right mind can put someone in office who just may leave us with Palin as the President of the United States of America.  President Palin.  Someone, please get me an icepack. Now, I must retire and account for each precious moment.   I’m expecting a phone call from McCain’s camp any moment now for some sort of cabinet position to appeal to his young African-American female constituency.  My blog and political opinions should suffice as enough political experience.

MISOGYNY & MAYHEIM: WOMEN IN IRAQ

by MullOverThis

DEMOCRACY NOW recently interviewed Dr. John and Mrs. Linda Johnson regarding the suspect death of their daughter,  Lavina Johnson, while serving in Iraq in the United States armed forces.

There is something you can do.  Please contact your congresspersons and let them know that you are concerned about what happened to Lavina Johnson, and the safety of other women in Iraq.  The solution is not for women to stay home, but for criminals to be held accountable.  Women are allegedly being assaulted, harassed, raped and murdered.  Proper adjudication of such activity should not be dismissed because to do so would ruffle the feathers of our valiant soldiers, or men who are earning big bucks through private government contracts.  Urge your congresspersons to support any congressional hearings investigating crimes against women working for private contractors  (such as Haliburton), and in the United States military.

Based upon Mrs. Johnson’s choice verbiage in referencing the “lying demons” who are allegedly covering up Lavina’s assault, rape and murder, she knows exactly what is at work here.  We don’t fight flesh, we fight against the  works of Satan.  So, for those of you understand this, let us pray that the Johnson’s receive justice and that the will of God be done for all other families who have been lied to regarding their loved ones.  Pray for the protection of women who are not just fighting for our country, but are fighting for their own safety.  Pray that all of the hidden things (to bring this end) be revealed to the right people, at the right time.
