This is such a bunch of crap. While I never was 100% behind Palin because of the fact I do think she is a bit incompetent evidenced by her “Couric” interview in which she couldn’t even list a few daily newspapers that she read or she couldn’t define the role of the VP, I do agree with her on this issue.
“I’ve been interested to see how Caroline Kennedy will be handled and if she will be handled with kid gloves or if she will be under such a microscope,” Palin told conservative filmmaker John Ziegler, during an interview Monday for his upcoming documentary film, “How Obama Got Elected.” Excerpts from the interview were posted on YouTube Wednesday evening.
“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.”
I am so sick of the warm, fuzzy rush that much of the U.S., particularily the liberal left (and media) has for all things Kennedy or all things Bush. We are not a monarchy. We are not in a hierarchial system (yet) where we shouldn’t have so called “royal families” if we are truly a democratic and free society. The fact that the most influential, wealthy, and powerful nation on Earth still operates in this archic system to this day is embarrassing.
The only reason she’s even in the running is because of her name (nothing new) but the fact that idiot NYers will probably (given their blind-sheep voting reord based on carpetbagger Clinton) unoquivically and overwhelmingly vote her into office once her “term” is up in 2010. (I could say a lot more but what is the point? What hasn’t already been said? In a year where Al Franken is going to become U.S. Senator its clear to be this once presitgous club has become nothing more than a joke.)
I ask, is the Democratic political machine (i.e. corruption) really still that strong that supposed free-minded NYers can’t bother to vote for anyone if they aren’t supported by a blue “D” next to their names on any ballot or do they willingly chose to be this way? I fear the latter and that they are just too stupidly legitimately liberal that they honestly want someone like her in office.
Back to Palin, concerning Fey she really was nothing more than an opportunistic flake who seized the opportunity to boost her own career (it worked) and Couric is nothing but a tired, has-been Dan Rather disciple. (kind of like Rather himself along with his career). Coinsidence?
Palin offered the following:
“I did see that Tina Fey was named entertainer of the year and Katie Couric’s ratings have risen,” she said. “And I know that a lot of people are capitalizing on, oh I don’t know, perhaps some exploiting that was done via me, my family, my administration. That’s a little bit perplexing, but it also says a great deal about our society.”
Our society=doomed. This is just the first wave of politically correct raised youth that have no problems with progressiveness, enlightenment, and idiot-media. (believe me, I saw it leading up to the election months in advance). Its still “cool” to be liberal when you’re young, thus evidenced by all the new wave of voters who wanted to vote for Obama and his ilk (the Democratic party). Only this time its also popular, common, and a growing trend because of the political correctness factor.
