RNC: Either You Agree with Us, or You Must be a Terrorist
What is it with politics? I am so turned off by politicians of late. I only watched snippets of the RNC, as that was all I could stomach, and it really made my skin crawl.
I am so sick of the hypocrisy! Why can't a politician say what s/he is for and against and leave it at that? Why do they have to act like 7 year olds trying to make friends, 'What, did I say I like Power Rangers? I mean I hate them!'
The latest hypocrite is this Sarah Palin, but heck, she is just joining ranks with the rest of them; "Did I say abstinence is a Christian value? I meant: we are all sinners, and let he who is without sin cast the first stone!"
Don't get me wrong, I am not pointing fingers at her daughter, I just seem to remember some of my good ol' Republican friends saying that Bill wasn't fit to lead and be an example to our children because he 'had a moment of weakness', (which they could have forgiven him for) and yet Sarah Palin is leading the Christian conservative charge with her unwed daughter and her daughter's 'baby daddy'!
I just don't get it...
I will go on record saying that just like I don't want my children to become desensitized to immoral behavior by watching the likes of Lindsey Lohan, Paris Hilton, or Jaime Spears(sp?), I also don't want them to do the same by watching the Vice President's family!
Is anybody awake out there?
What really gave me the creeps was the look in the eyes of some of the attendees at that convention...I think I spotted drool on their faces when the speakers, Sarah, John, and Rudy, were bashing Obama. Was that glee in their eyes? I found the whole spectacle to be distasteful and hateful. Rather than focusing on what they were going to do, they spent their whole time focusing on demonizing their opponents. And woven throughout the truculent grandstanding was an undercurrent of 'we are the right people; they are the wrong people'. It was not about issues; it was about the people themselves...sinister.
They very much epitomized George's mantra, 'Either you are with us, or you are against us'.
I think I like the Islamic way, if you seek to govern, then you are unfit to govern.
Throw 'em all out!
