Palin a “Trophy” VP and Enough of John Edwards..

Oh, yay, John Edwards is going to come out of hiding and speak at Hofstra University in NY on Sept 8. Elizabeth had originally planned to be with him but has since changed her mind. Smart lady.

Don’t get me wrong. I used to like John Edwards, even though I got tired of hearing how poor he used to be. Has anybody bothered to see how UNpoor he is now? His damn estate is so large you have to look at it from an aerial view.

Here is the reason I’m pissed off, and it has nothing to do with politics. Had the shoe been on the other foot and Elizabeth had been running for president, I think she would have stepped down the moment she learned her husband had cancer. She would have wanted to be by his side during chemo. She would have been at every doctor’s visit, and she would have been studying things like nutrition and looking into every wellness program under the sun.

That’s how women do things. If we get stressed out, we eat too much chocolate or buy more shoes than we’ll ever wear, but we don’t normally race out and have an affair and spend months lying about it. 

Frankly, I can’t think of one thing John Edwards has to say that I want to hear.

Okay, now I’ll have my political say on John McCain and probably piss off everybody, but would someone tell me why he chose Sarah what’s-her-face for his vice president? Did you see the interview where she was sitting in a chair wanting to know what exactly a vice president does? I’m thinking, “Uh oh, that doesn’t sound so good.” Maybe there’s a book out there titled, “Vice President for Dummies.”

Bad enough McCain dumped wife number one for a trophy wife — Cindy McCain is 17 years younger — now he’s chosen a trophy vice president. If he’s hoping to appeal to women voters who stood behind Hillary Clinton, he made a bad mistake. Sarah is no Hillary.

That’s my opinion for what it’s worth.

    I agree with your take on recent political events. When I first heard that McCain had chosen a woman, I thought “Good Move.” Then I learned a little bit about her and thought “Good Move for Dems.” & on Edwards: I was shocked when he didn’t step down after Elizabeth’s cancer came back. I lost some respect for him there. BTW love your blog. You make me laugh.

    Hi from Russia. I shall not discuss presidential race in USA, as it only your business. However, why such rage on Russia. You that, have forgotten a history. You see only Russia has supported USA in civil war 19 centuries, and the Russian fleet protected USA from Great Britain.

    I’m sorry that I don’t know much about Russian history, but most Americans simply want to get along with everyone. We probably have a lot more in common than you think. We’re all trying to make a living, raise our kids right, and pay off our mortgages. The man I plan to vote for come election day will not only repair foreign relations but will serve our country with great dignity.
