Some politicians really know how to stir some controversy. This McCain guy has elected possibly the most controversial running mate in American history. Maybe he was not entirely aware of her warped perspective when he asked her to join him, and simply thought it was a good idea to pick a woman since the swing vote lies with Hillary Clinton supporters. However, against Hillary, Sarah pales in comparison.
The biggest asset Hillary has over Sarah is that she has already been in the White House. She knows how things are done and did not let her husband screw up the country in the process (insert obvious joke here). Sarah Palin has been Governor of Alaska for what – two years? Alaska is kind of like its own country, right?
Hillary rode out the controversy of her husband’s disgrace with dignity and strength, and any woman who can endure that kind of public scrutiny and criticism must be someone world leaders wouldn’t want to contend with. Palin, however, attempted to cover up her daughter’s ‘shame’ Desperate Housewives style by pretending to be the mother of her daughter’s child.
Clinton’s main initiative is her healthcare plan, which was intended to provide healthcare to all Americans equally. Palin endorses the denial of state healthcare benefits to same sex couples.
Hillary obtained a law degree from Yale, Palin attended Hawaii Pacific College, North Idaho College, University of Idaho, Matanuska-Susitna College, and University of Idaho again where she finally obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in journalism. More is better, yes? With her pageantry in progress, it’s understandable that her studies could get in the way. Hillary Clinton supports numerous Children’s organizations. Sarah Palin wants schools to teach abstinence & Creationism, and to teach gun safety to youth.
Matt Damon is not the only one to think that it’s crazy for a Presidential Candidate to select such an obvious flake for a running mate – or at least, I hope so. If we all cannot see how disastrous this could be and we elect this dynamic duo into office, we’re all in trouble. At least the late-night talk show hosts will have plenty of material to work with.
