John McCain has done the smartest thing he has ever done since his Skyhawk went tits-up over Hanoi and he pulled eject. Barack Obama is now toast. They were even cooing over Mrs Palin on the BBC this morning.
John McCain might be an old git but Barack Obarmy chose another old git in Joe Biden (who on this side of the pond is best known for ripping off a Neil Kinnock speech - Fucking Hell! If you’re gonna steal at least steal from a winner).
Now whadda I think about Sarah Palin? Brass tacks time. 1. I could imagine having sex with her and that’s a frankly new phenomenon for a presumptive veep (though I did hold a candle for Walter Mondale). Does that matter? I think it does to the electorate. For every women who falls for Obama’s geeky charms (seen the ears on him?) two fellas will fall for Palin. 2. This means a Republican win which is not ideal but not the total fucking disaster that an Obamestration would be. 3. The biggest weakness McCain has is his age and that’s canceled. 4. The second biggest weakness McCain has is that he’s seen as too socially liberal. Palin isn’t. She is dramatically anti-abortion for example. For the Republicans to have a youngish woman making that case takes the wind out of Obama’s sails to a staggering degree.
Enough numbers already! I disagree with Palin on abortion but a great many US voters don’t and quite frankly it’s all pissing into Joe Biden’s tent which is good. But that’s only one issue. Palin wants to drill for oil in Alaska which is good. Palin doesn’t believe in AGW which is good. Palin is quite possibly the presumptive Republican candidate for 2012 and that is good. The extent to which the Dems have claimed to be the party of the “minorities” and the marginalised deserves a righteous kicking and Mrs Palin is the woman to do it (you recall women are a “minority”?). The Dems have spent over a year wittering on about how cool they were to have a barack fella* and a “woman”** in the race and quite frankly (to quote my Aussie Great Aunt) everyone has got “piggy-rotten sick of it”. Sarah Palin is the real deal though. And why am I not surprised? Can we please drop the idea that the left is kinder to birds and nig nogs? Can we please just drop that? That General Powell*** has at least a touch of the tar-brush and who followed him as Sec-State? And don’t even get me started on Maggie Thatcher.
I’d best wrap-up because this is degenerating into a rant. The short version is that the GOP has pulled the rug (who the fuck is Joe Biden anyway?) from under the Obamanon. John McCain will be three billion and one in 2012 but Sarah Palin will be 48 and God alone knows what placental anti-ageing compounds the Wicked Witch of the East will have to be using by then.
Oh hell! I’m supporting an old git and an anti-abortion creationist. I don’t even get a vote for fuck’s sake. But I hope they win because Biden is (frankly) a cunt of the first water and fucking fuck knows what Obama is. If the GOP don’t beat those pair of prize twats into the deck with a rusty Sear’s wrench then I’m moving to Amsterdam and calling myself “Jan”.
If you are wondering (as am I) about the title of this post then you ought to visit JibJab more often.
*Not a black fella. Obama stands for everyone who embraces hope and indeed change. I actually believe (shit that sounds like an Obamanism) there is some truth in the “Uncle Tom” taunts from such deranged bastards as Jesse Jackson. I mean Obama isn’t either black or white or indeed anything. He is a cypher. What he’s a cypher for is something I don’t want to find out. What the fuck was he doing putting his kids on the stage at the DNC? WTF was that about?
**Mrs Palin is clearly a woman. You look at her and think, “that’s a woman”. You imagine she’s got like tits and everything. That isn’t meant in a sexual way. I don’t fancy Mrs Palin. My point is that I could imagine fancying her. By saying she looks “like a woman” I’m saying she looks human. It’s a short version of saying she looks like a member of my species which is something that cannot be said for Ed Balls for example. Now look at Hillary Clinton in comparison and try not to think, “That’s Joe Stalin in a trouser-suit”.
*** Sorry for the appalling racist term that follows. I use it because I am fucked off with lefties claiming the likes of Colin Powell got where they did as the token nigger. No he didn’t. The US Army doesn’t appoint **** Generals on PC whims. The moment they do we is screwed.
