Bless You, John McCain
I'm a slightly conflicted because I really do want her to fade back into the mists of Alaska. I want her to be a sign of stagnation, of the death of the GOP, of everything wrong of the past eight years, and of lessons we have learned as Americans. Therefore, I don't want to write about her.
However, this made me laugh out loud:
At the moment, however, Ms. Palin’s message sounds highly “Sarah-centric.” On this redemption tour, Ms. Palin is the headliner and her former running mate is a historical footnote. Ms. Palin said she wanted to introduce Mr. McCain on election night in order to “brag him up,” as she put it, “and do what John McCain just can’t seem to do for himself, bless his heart.”
"Bless his heart"? That's what my southern relatives would say when they wanted to insult someone without seeming "rude."
"The Turner's youngest daughter? Well doesn't she just have the face of a dog, bless her heart!"
Steve Schmidt should be in a bunker somewhere thinking, "My god... I've created a monster."
A monster the GOP has to live with.
