Biden deserves a lot more respect than you're giving him fun gus. He's been out-dumbassing the dumbasses for 30 years. That takes a special kind of dumbass, one perfectly qualified for VP.
It wasn't that Palin was a VP candidate. It was the fact that she was the VP candidate for old ass McCain. Wouldn't you be a lot more concerned about Bush having Quayle as his VP if he was president now?
It's one thing for a 65-year old man to have a dumbass one shot away, it's another to have a 75-year old man have a dumbass one shot away.
Well, you do have a valid point there, Pudge. But, I maintain that age of McSame has very little to do with the public at large and the media, and if the letter behind her surname was a 'D' there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that not only would she be 'smart and a glass ceiling breaker', those damn Republicans are not only racist but sexist as well for complaining about her
Can we all agree that there is a clear double standard there?
I still maintain that her experience at least shows me that she can take orders and advice well. You just dont become a councilwoman, mayor, governor of any state without having at least a grasp of how to listen to your campaign advisors
, and if she were POTUS I highly doubt she would be cracking the Eihner code but would be able to let the 'really smart dontcha know' advisors tell her whats going on. However, who knows, her book is titlede 'Going Rogue'? I have an in with a bookseller here so I'll probably read it just to see what her ghost writer cooked up for her.
On a side note, I'm really thinking about asking for a Kindle for Xmas. I've heard you can put like 200 books on them!
You know I used to work in talk radio, and I still have alot of friends that still listen. After Glenn Beck called Obama a racist, I pretty much tuned out, and now I only listen to XM or sports talk. BUt some of these guys are just as bad. One old friend of mine and I were arguing about W, and he said he was proud to be part of the 37% that thought he was a 'good' POTUS
He asked me to point out some things Obama has done that I agree with. Plenty. He told the feds to stop investigating medical marijuana users, and I think I feel a spell of glaucoma coming on. I also liked the fact that he didn't pussy out with the pirates, and basically told the Seal team to take them out. And~ while I hardly think it Nobel worthy, I liked the fact that he is not going to fund our imaginary 'missle shield' in Europe anymore. It's time for Poland to look to France and Britain for some help there.
BUt I sure wish he would s*** or get off the pot in Afghanistan. That war wasn't Bush' war, it was all our war. And BUsh screwed it up by sending in too little troops and cutting deals with warlords and opium growers. You know what would make me and most of my freinds in the middle be democrats for life? Obama makes a hard decision and holds a press conference. He comes out and says ' we learned in the last 8 years the danger of playing politics and not going to war with all your might. Its time to put this baby to bed. Effective immediately, all troops stationed currently in Iraq are to start heading over to Afghanistan. In addition, I am calling up all the reserves in all 50 states and immediately putting them on notice, in 2 months, your going over there too if your not already there. Also, I'm taking assets from our bases in Korea and Germany to get rolling. 2 months, folks. Christmas time. I know that sucks, but the one thing I learned in Jerimaih's Church of the Chip is that the greatest act of LOVE is for one man to lay down his life for his fellow man. That is the meaning of Xmas. By letting this thing drag on and on were killing more people then if we just took care of business. This is going to be hard. Sacrifices have to be made. 2 months. Warlords, Poppy growers and those who want to meet Allah, stay right there. Surrender or leave, because the napalm's a comin. Oh, and Pakistan? Your about to have the might of the worlds toughest armed forces all up in your backayard, so I suggest you play ball with helping us get that bastard, you know who I am talking about. Oh, and code pink and y'all nuts on the West Coast, sucks to be you. You can complain or get on the bus. Because if I pull this off, bring home Bin Laden, get out of Iraq and kill the Taliban for good, not only have I freed more women then Jesus himself, I will have carte blanche to get healthcare and amnesty, and that a finishing move for my competition. That is all'.
