Lipstick on Pitbulls

No, that's not it.  It's lipstick on hockey moms.  That's how you tell Palin from a pitbull, says Palin herself in front of a wowed audience.  Gotta admit, she was effective.  Home run, perhaps, for John McCain.  Spunky 44 year old mom.  This should eliminate the clatter about her family, at least for now.

But not about experience.  Attack, she did, Barack Obama, with the full force of a humorous pitbull.   'What does he actually seek to accomplish after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet?' she wants to know, pointing out how little Obama achieved in his various political offices.  Why, to grow a bigger government and take more of our money, she says, answering her own question.

But we knew that.  All democrats do that.  No republicans do that.  Republicans use the veto, and leave somebody behind.  Democrats squander all of somebody's money on wasteful and ineffective programs.

So what's new?

Don't get me wrong.  I liked her.  I imagine everyone liked her.  That fiesty pitbull with lipstick and rouge.  But I like Obama, too, you know, the guy with the sappy slow cadence who will bring us change.  Yes, yes we can.  We think we can, we think we can.  We knew we could, we knew we could.  Now where have I heard that before?

But wait . . . if Obama gets done 'turning back the waters and healing the planet,' why would he then need to grow a bigger government and take more of our money?  Seems he would have accomplished a lot by then, and might choose to rest on the seventh day, and leave the government and our pocketbooks alone for awhile.  Oh, I get it, it doesn't have to be logical, just an emoting political slap in the face against the democrats, kinda like the emoting political slap in the face against McCain, saying he'll just be another 4 years, another 4 years, another 4 years, of, ah . . . the previous guy.  Well, that wouldn't be change.

So how can any of our leaders say this isn't just politics as usual?  And what in the world did we just go through more than a year of primary campaigning for?

I know this much.  I still can't get through an airport in America without taking my shoes off, and watching a lot of grandmothers take their's off, too.  Remind me again, please, which party is against that?   That's the party I want to vote for.  In the meantime, I hope somebody heals the planet.  Seems pretty important, whether ye be favoring lipstick or old spice.



  1. I really like her. She really knows how to do important things, like handle a gun. That really is important. And she won't overreact about all the global warming stuff.

  2. what he said, if it's a he, and what she said, if it's a she
