Sarah Palin for VP? Really?

Is it just me? Choosing a 40 year old mother of 5 to run for VP might not be a positive choice for women voters, or for most voters. And what does it say about McCain’s judgement? C’mon. 5 kids, one is 4 months old with Downs. And now she is going to devote 100% of her time to campaigning and then if elected, to being a full time VP, traveling, being available in a moments notice, making choices between her kids needs and the job? Seriously? Being a mother of young kids is a demanding job. I only had 2, but there were many times when I was torn. Having to choose to leave my child to go to work when my child was sick, or had a special project, or needed help through an emotional crisis that can only be helped by giving the love that a mom can give… these are extremely hard choices for normal moms. What does it say about a woman who is willing to put herself in this position to deprive her children, including a 4 month old, of physical and emotional access to their mother? Is it realistic to think that a woman can balance these two jobs? Sarah! Seriously? And what about John McCain’s judgment to put someone in this position- she could be president in a heartbeat. How does he put someone in that position, that could have to decide between a meeting with world leaders around the globe, or staying home to see her child through surgery, or missing the big event at school, or when her children are having an emotional meltdown and she has to say “later, I’m busy”. Downs babies often have serious medical complications. If she is a dedicated mother, what does it say about her choice to accept this role? And John McCain, C’mon. She has 2 years being governor of a state that won the office with 115,000 votes. And you were complaining that Obama doesn’t have the experience to lead the country. What kind of judgment were you using to make such a big decision. I am all for women doing outstanding things, including being president. But this demonstrates extraordinarily bad judgment. Mcain on his choice, and Palin on her acceptance. She has a stuffed bear in her office. Did she shoot it for fun? Sounds like a crowd pleaser, shooting animals just for fun. I don’t like hunting for sport, but that’s just me.
Sarah Palin with her bear. Awe, how cute.

And Joe Biden, who had those lovely comments about his wife being drop dead gorgeous and in the next sentence that her Phd could be a problem (insinuating that she is too smart, and that would be a bad thing). I must assume that he meant that being smart somehow prevents him from wrapping his brain around her drop dead gorgeousness. Seriously Biden. You are going to be a source of entertainment. We are in for a spectacular time. I don’t like McCain. I just can’t imagine a president that can’t use a computer. Ick. Ron Paul, where are you.

    Would you question a father of five running for president? Where have you been for the last 40 years? I personally stay at home to raise my 4 children but have no problem with others who choose to work. It’s an individual family choice. Who are you to judge? Were you elected mother of the century?

    Also, as for your comment about him not being able to use a computer. If you had your arms and hands broken as many times as he did in Viet Nam you might have a hard time using a computer also. Read sometime about the tortures he endured to help end communism and make our country free so idiots like you can voice an opinion without being jailed or worse!

    Wendi this is one of the funniest emails I have ever read and I love the fact that you write it the way you would have said it.

    We as a country are FUBAR (Fucked Up Beyond Any Repair) so having these clowns running for President is like watching a satanic mechanic fill up your brake fluid with demons. However, The Republicans know that the it’s the Democrats turn for Presidency and are doing everything in their power for Obama to win – why? That is a question for the “powers that be”(think loud voice with a lot of reverb on it coming from above) – so you got McLame who does not appear like he’s running so hard for president, saying stupid things like he doesn’t care – (they told him “don’t worry John-you can’t win!) so to insure that McLame does not win – they nominate SARAH PALIN for VP – yeah – “let’s get that moron bitch gov from ALASKA!” Yeah. Yeah – then the whole country will vote for Obama – (They got scared (the republicans) for some reason Obama has to win the Presidency – I lived in NYC when Dinkins became Mayor – well – that was the last time that happened – he was a racist dip shit of an asshole who cared only about Black people and Tennis! What a combo! Anyway – we never saw another blackie as Mayor and never will – not in my lifetime again – Same for President – Obama (in my estimation) is the MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE – watch that movie – and you’ll understand. The Dems want Biden for president but he’s too old and the country would never have voted for him – this is how it is going to go down – Obama gets to be Prez. Something terrible happens to him, his wife and his two little kids (I don’t what) and he goes away – Biden takes over for the remainder of the term. Only 4 years folks so that in 2012 – we are sure to get another Republican president – because 2012 is the year it all goes away or it all changes – I hope in 2012 the IRS gets canned – and drifts down the river to oblivion. :)

    peace out – Wendi – you are a riot!

    I totally agree that Gov. Palin does not have the experience to be vice president, let alone president if anything happened to 72-year-old McCain. Thanks for your honest analysis.
