Sarah Palin: The Living Embodiment Of Everything That Has Gone Wrong With America in the Past 35 Years.

I might be the only person in America who doesn’t find the Saturday Night Live parodies of Sarah Palin very funny*. As a matter of fact I find them extremely unnerving - like they actually give Sarah Palin legitamacy. Sarah Palin is a dangerous, reckless, manipulative, stupid and soulless excuse for a human. There is absolutely nothing entertaining about Sarah Palin. She represents everything that has gone wrong with America in the past 35 years.

The country is falling apart right in front of our eyes. The financial anthrax that brought down Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Wachovia (among others) is slowing spreading to other countries and is about to hit to American businesses just in time for the Christmas selling season. You know Christmas, the season of religious joy, where many small businesses, especially retail stores earn 50% or more of their revenue in the 10 short weeks leading up to the holiday. Millions of Americans are employed directly or indirectly by these businesses (so far, mortar and bricks retail is hard to outsource), as are the suppliers, restaurants and shippers etc. that keep the consumer economy humming along. These are the people that Sarah Palin so warmly calls Joe Six Pack. Judging from her recent performances and malevolent speeches on the stump, she has no idea the credit "crunch" is about to hit her descamisados and hit them hard.
