I’ll Say It Again….

My last post was “Sara Who?” because I was wondering how McShame came to think she was the right person to choose as a running mate. As I read through the comments, I realized I wasn’t alone in my thinking. Against my better judgment, I watched the RNC in primetime tonight.  It was great.  It was a mess!!! Somebody slap me.  Somebody slap Rudy Giuliani!!!  For a moment I thought was watching an episode of Def Comedy Jam….then they panned through the audience and I saw all those tired outfits and old people cornballs and realized Russell Simmons would not be taking the stage.  John McShame did take the stage looking Presidential like a claymation Fire Marshall Bill.

Do I feel better about Sara Who…..NOPE!!!!!  Nothing she said made me feel even remotely better about her being in the number 2 spot.  I googled her last week so she said nothing I didn’t already know. She gave us the 411 about her family (again), she told us about her “refusal” of congress’s “bridge to nowhere” (yawn), and she showed us hygiene wasn’t a big deal in her house (did y’all see that little girl slick that baby’s hair down with spit…YUCK)! She did a lot of McShame schmoozing, but that was to be expected.  Basically I feel the same way I did yesterday…they plucked her to appeal to women and the conservative Republican base.  She has no new ideas and nothing of substance to bring to the White House or this country.

I heard a few jabs about Obama’s time as a community organizer.  It just goes to show you how out of touch the Republicans are.  A Presidential Candidate that is actually concerned with his community is a good thing.  A candidate concerned with the plight of the poor and under-served to me is more desirable than a candidate that won Ms. Congeniality.

The Republicans love to paint Obama as “elitist” and say he appeals to celebrities and not regular people.  Again they have it all wrong.  Obama appeals to people with SENSE.  Obama appeals to people wanting something different than this mess the Republicans want to keep going.  Obama appeals to the people that want to END THE WAR.  I don’t need to hear about us staying the course in Iraq.  I don’t need to hear about McShame getting it right with the surge.  What about people with no healthcare?  What about all the jobs that keep going overseas?   I want to hear how you are going to make college affordable for our kids.  Sweet Jesus be a reality check and shake some sense into the Pantsuit Posse.  John McShame and Sara Who do not have our best interests at heart.  Their pseudo-conservative values and fear tactics (If I hear them allude to Obama not being tough on terror one more time…..) are exactly what we DON’T need!

The media is falling all over themselves complimenting her speech and talking about how “tough” she was.  GIVE ME A BREAK…..so what she gave a tough speech. The speech was written by a George Bush speech writer.  I’ll say it again SARA WHO?????

  1. Blah, blah and blah…I felt like the I was listening from the teacher from Charlie Brown. So I turned to watch Venus and Serena duke it out on the tennis court.

    Go home Sara and clean up your house.

  3. Didn’t watch the whole thing, but from what I did see Sara Who, did a whole lot of fussing about why Obama shouldn’t be in the White House, but never gave us a reason as to why she should be. I can’t with those Republicans!

  4. JerzeeChick you are on fire today and rightfully so. That whole thing was a mess last night. Sara “Who” did not state one thing of substance. She went on and on with cliches about why Barack didn’t have an energy plan but she offered nothing of her own except to drill because “renewable energy sources won’t be ready for years”. Well, when do we get started???…when the oil runs out??? She doesn’t think he has foreign policy experience however it is rumored that her passport shows that she has never left the United States. She’s never been abroad. She is an anti-choice religious conservative that opposes abortions even in the case of rape or incest. She opposes any sex education being taught in schools and she opposes any information about sex being given to teenagers except abstinence – hence her daughter is pregnant. She has been a mayor of a small town and Gov. of Alaska for 18 months, but this woman would be next in line to be President of the United States. With McCain being 72 years old and a history of all sorts of health problems that possiblity is GREAT. She is under investigation for corruption in Alaska, which will be a HUGE distraction for her when the hearings start.

    Nice choice McCain! Your judgement is seriously compromised and suspect!

  5. It was interesting to me how Baby Mama Mama talked about being close to victory in the Iraq War (Sounds like Bush to me)and criticized Obama for his desire to in her words, “forfeit” the war. She must be getting some of that war money too.
