CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS: PALIN IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE

Christopher Hitchens has reached an endorsement by process of elimination. John McCain, he writes, isn’t up to the job, while “the only public events that have so far featured his absurd choice of running mate have shown her to be a deceiving and unscrupulous woman utterly unversed in any of the needful political discourses but easily trained to utter preposterous lies and to appeal to the basest element of her audience.”

Some how, some way, the two don't mix. I'm referring to McCain/Palin. McCain doesn't know the qualifications when he sees it when making judgment for a V.P. Being his pick for Sarah Palin, proves McCain isn't qualified to come near the White House, meaning being President of the United States. A high school teacher from Mt. View, Arkansas has a better chance of being a V.P than Sarah Mooseolini. (Hope there's no high school teacher from Mt. View, Ark a member here). If so, I'll be banned for sure.

My view of the Republican party today, they have set the party back one hundred years, which is great.

I hope it is more like 76, as in 1932 when FDR beat Hoover. A hundred years ago, the Repugs were at their most progressive with Teddy Roosevelt in the White House, and they definitely have NOT been set back to being more progressive.

The fact is George Bush was not qualified and he was appointed President ! What in the Wide World of Politics makes you think McCain will not be appointed one way or another. And the difference between Palin and Cheney is minimal. Especially when one considers the force that controls government is the Group of One Thousand that emanates from the CFR.

Isn't Matthew Dowd somewhat of a respected GOPer? What happens when a fellow GOPer says this:

Bush Strategist: McCain Knows He Put Country At Risk With Palin Pick
Quote:
October 14, 2008 01:18 PM

Matthew Dowd, a prominent political consultant and chief strategist for George W. Bush's reelection campaign eviscerated John McCain on Tuesday for his choice of Sarah Palin as vice president.

Dowd proclaimed that, in his heart of hearts, McCain knew he put the country at risk with his VP choice and that he would "have to live" with that fact for the rest of his career.

"They didn't let John McCain pick the person he wanted to pick as VP," Dowd declared during the Time Warner Summit panel. "When Sarah Palin got picked instead of Joe Lieberman, which I fundamentally believed would have given John McCain the best opportunity in this race... as soon as he picked Palin, that whole ready versus not ready argument was not credible."
...

She ditches the old boys club, and she loses support from the [semi] young ones as well.

In this commentary, journalist Roland Martin says that Sarah Palin needs to answer some tough questions. He also gives you a link to ask questions of your own.
