Kiss Your Ass Goodbye
If you don't believe me, just listen to the enormous support Palin is receiving from Dr. Dobson, "End Time" author Tim La Haye, and others on the Christian right. Dobson once swore he would never vote for John McCain. He now calls McCain's choice of Palin "outstanding" and is promising his enthusiastic support. -- Steve Weissman, "A Gidget For God's Truth", Truthout
A secret agent of change. That's what Sarah Palin is. You just have to squint reeeeaaaaal hard to see it.
Finally, we're seeing the real rationale for John McCain's supposedly absurd and nonsensical choice of Sarah Palin to be his running mate. It wasn't just for the purposes of providing the GOP with eye candy or to obfuscate his own staggering lack of qualifications to be even in public service much less the Oval Office.
Apparently, without anyone, typically, paying attention, John McCain was slyly sucking up to the evangelical snake charmers of Crazy Base World on whom we thought he'd given up. Far from it.
McCain, during his increasingly rare lucid moments, is still savvy and canny enough between Depends changes and tapioca pudding feedings to know that he has a much better chance of winning this election if he obtains the support of kingmakers like James "Last of the Dogbeaters" Dobson. Look at the Steve Weissman article on Palin to which I'd linked above. Look at it and read this Truthout exclusive closely.
Weissman wonders out loud what Armageddon Palin has in mind. Well, look no further than her most recent statements about Russia, made, with hideous timing, on the 7th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
This, coming over three weeks after Russia had officially voted to recognize South Ossetia and the other breakaway Republics. In fact, Palin's chilling words to five star woolhead Charles Gibson on national television were, "We will not repeat a Cold War."
Some like it hot, I guess.
