The dinosaur media was right, there is a vast difference between the Governor of Alaska and the Campaigner - in - Chief. However,not in the manner the dinosaurs would have you believe. Throughout the campaign these liberal water boys dutifully carried Obama's water by proclaiming how cool, and sophisticated and intelligent he was. At the same time, they along with some unexpected and quite frankly schocking assistance from beltway conservatives like Peggy Noonan, declared that Sarah Palin was unspohisticated, inexperienced and naive. They loudly and erroneously proclaimed that it was frightening that Sarah Palin was only a heartbeat away from the presidency. Their fear was palpable.
What brings this issue to light now, is the President's appearance on the tonight show and the horrible joke he told about rolling a gutter ball and feeling like he was in the special Olymics. Of course, it was followed by the spin - doctored apology and the forgiveness showered upon him by the Schriver family. Yes, we are told it was truly the most heartfelt and sincere apology of all time, and the dinosaurs lapped it up. What a man of compassion!
Of course, this is utter nonsense. This Freudian slip allowed us a little peek into the President's soul, and a cold and bitter and angry soul it is. America is unfair, racist, and if his "compassionate" abortion policy is followed we won't have to bother with special needs children in our nanny state future.
Contrast this with Sarah Palin's recent address to the Special Olympics, the subject of an earlier blog by Daria. There we saw a loving mother with her beautiful son, to whom the President could not hold a candle. We saw the picture of a self - made independent woman, who achieved success through her own individual merit and hard work. In other words, the living embodiment of the American dream.
How proud I am to have voted for Sarah Palin. How sad for the country that she is not our Vice President. One can only hope that in January 2013 we get to see Trig playing hide and seek in the Oval Office.
