McCain-Palin is a Joke

What is the deal with John McCain? He is a man who has not accepted the fact that his time has passed, and no matter how hard he tries to get with the new day and age, he will never fit the mold. He is nothing but a big crybaby with twisted ideals for the American society.

In what seems to be his most recent retaliation to his limited media hype, he chooses Sarah Palin, Alaskan governor of the past 2 years, as his vice presidential running-mate. Apparently he chooses face over qualifications. He hopes that by having a woman as his running-mate, it will draw in the hardcore Hillary Clinton supporters to vote for him. If those avid Clinton supporters have any brains, they will not look only on the surface to base their votes.

With the media coverage so far about Palin, it seems that they are trying to appeal her to the United States by making her seem like the ultimate traditional family person. She just gave birth to her fifth child this year, and he was born with Down Syndrome. Her oldest son is enlisted in the Army. Good for her, but this is completely irrelevant. McCain claims that because her son is serving in the Army, she knows how to run the country. If you are going to base someone’s qualifications on something like that, well then, I guess anyone whose children are serving in the military are just as qualified. Not to mention, her son has only been enlisted in the Army for less than a year and is stationed in Fairbanks, Alaska right now.

And only two days ago, Palin announced that her 17-year-old daughter is 5 months pregnants. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t premarital sex looked down on in a conservative viewpoint? Aren’t contraceptives also seen as a sin because you are preventing procreation, which is God’s will or whatever you call it?  Well here you go! Teaching your conservative children that premarital sex is a sin doesn’t stop them from doing the deed. And obviously, by not teaching about contraceptives, they’ll just get pregnant. The media leaves gaping holes in their attempted cover-ups of this situation. Apparently everyone’s “proud” that Palin’s daughter is going to marry the baby’s father, but I can bet you that this was not decided until recently, and I doubt that this young girl actually wants to get married at such a young age. The teenage pregnancy should be irrelevant in the election, but I do not think that is so. This is complete hypocrisy on the Republican party’s part.

Does McCain WANT to lose? His main argument against Barack Obama’s lack of experience is completely void, so let’s see what McCain can dig up now. Palin has only served 2 years as Alaska governor, and served 2 terms as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, “a town of 6,500 where the biggest issue is controlling growth and the biggest civic worry is whether there will be enough snow for the Iditarod dog-mushing race.” (Analysis: Palin’s age, inexperience rival Obama’s) After governing a town of 6,500 and state of not even close to 1 million people, how is she going to help with governing a country of over 350 million people?

Someone needs to e-mail Palin the Vice President job description. According to the following article Palin dissed veep job, only one month ago, Palin expressed her disdain with the Vice President position. “Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s ‘Kudlow & Co.’ asked her about the possibility of becoming McCain’s ticket mate. Palin replied: ‘As for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? ‘” The article later states that this can be seen as her way of implying that McCain is geared for a radical reform in Washington. You could say that, but honestly, after reading her quote for the first time, it appears that she is just plain inexperienced. One month later, she is the GOP Vice Presidential candidate.

Either McCain is trying to gain more control for himself in office if he were to win, or he’s just trying too hard to appeal to the Democrats. I would love to think that the American population will not be stupid enough to vote for McCain just because his running-mate is a woman, but then again, I have lost so much faith in my fellow citizens. After all, it is our nation’s people who voted W. Bush into office for two awful, unproductive terms.

I am a Hillary Clinton supporter, but now I am 100-percent behind Barack Obama. I would rather die than support McCain’s cause. If McCain wins in November, which I strongly believe he will NOT, I am not coming back to the United States until he is out of office or he passes, whichever comes first.
