How Sweet It Is

How sweet it is. The Dems are off with the sterling – no, golden – candidates, and one can only wish the best for them, and for the future of our country. Our badly diminished country. How we need the capable, vibrant, intelligent team of Barack Obama and Joe Biden!

But my mood is dampened now that the house-collecting Republican candidate – who may yet acquire another one on Pennsylvania Avenue – has selected his running mate. Should harm befall John McCain – considering his age and medical history – who do we have waiting in the wings? Waiting to take over the governance of our country, and assume the role of leader of the free world? Our troubled world?

The evangelicals are giddy with joy. They have their hockey Mommy, whose favorite dish is moose, and who has an impressive political background of less than two years as the governor of the pivotal state of Alaska. The faithful must truly believe the V.P. on their ticket is equipped to look into anyone’s eyes, and see her or his immortal soul.

If this were a novel, no one could believe it. If non-fiction, plenty of footnotes would be required to establish credibility. But it’s all too true, and this is why everyone – every woman and man – with a functioning brain, and a desire to see America break away from the lies of the past eight years, has to get to the polls on November 4.

Vote as though your life depends on it, because it well may.

Not only is she a firm believer in Creationism she also tried to get her local library to ban "offensive" books when she was the mayor.

She dares to compare herself to Hillary and Geraldine Ferraro? Admittedly I'm not a fan of either one of those two but her "accomplishments" are no where near theirs on any level.

Regarding this post and your previous one, it is curious, is it not, that the USA was founded as a secular state with a clear separation of Church and State, and yet Americans are some of the most fervently religious people on the planet, and the theocratic state is becoming increasingly visible on the horizon. Scary.

Meanwhile, in my country, (the UK) we have the Established Church of England presided over by the Head of State no less(The Queen)and yet we Brits are probably amongst the LEAST religious people on the planet.

Personally, whilst I have no difficulty in the possibility that God exists, I have great difficulty in accepting organised religion. The multitude of religions in the world (all of whom possess the Truth) seem to me to be the greatest cause of misery, torture, evil, and general conflict.

I'm sorry, I've already commented here once before, but God help us if this vacuous dingbat gets within a heartbeat of the Presidency. (Still, her international credentials are impeccable .. apparently she can see Russia pretty much from her kitchen window!)
