I usually try to post happy things, funny things, pretty things, silly things. In fact, I had a very happy post ready to go today. However, today is my day off and I decided to watch a few DVRed episodes of The Daily Show. And there went the happy post.
Every day I am more and more convinced that Sarah Palin is such a bad choice for VP. I try to think that, although I don't like John McCain's politics, he is (or was) a good person who believes he is doing the right thing but the more I see of Sarah Palin, the more I can't even say that anymore. And this isn't just because I question her intelligence, doubt her experience level, can't stand the way she talks, and am sick of her hypocrisy. It's because I honestly think that she is bad for the country. Her recent comments about "real Americans", "pro-America people" and other things like that are exactly what this country does not need. We don't need it ever but especially not right now. We are facing economic and environmental crises. We need to work together.
Which is why I had to put the other post on hold and share these clips of Palin's recent interviews which are so disturbing and disgusting, so truly UN-AMERICAN that I am worried about what may happen on Nov 4, but even more terrified of what might happen for the next 4 years if she has any say in it. To quote one of the comments from the video site, "I thought the U in USA stood for United, does it now stand for Unequal."
