Subject: I've Learned a Few Things
Listening to the mainstream media these last few days
I've learned a few things about the GOP's VP nominee but also had to
learn a few things on my own. To wit:
1. From the media I learned Sarah Palin's husband has
a DUI conviction from 22 years ago. On my own I learned that Ted Kennedy
(hero of last week's tribute at the DNC) was drunk while driving a car off a bridge in Chappaquiddick.
That same crash killed a young campaign volunteer with whom he
was having an affair. Oh, and that woman was pregnant with his child.
Mr. Palin's (who is not running for office) DUI came
a mere 4 years after Barack Obama (who is running for president) stopped
using cocaine and marijuana (by his own admission in his autobiography).
Shocking - it's OK for the presidential candidate to
use drugs or the party patriarch to kill someone while driving drunk yet
the husband of a VP candidate should be demonized for something done 22 years ago.
2. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin's daughter is pregnant.
On my own I learned that Joe Biden's (the other VP candidate) son was paid a large amount of money as a consultant to credit card company MBNA.
That same company had business before Senator Joe Biden
concerning regulation of consumer credit practices. After the company
paid a hefty sum to Mr. Biden's son, he voted in favor of legislation to help that company. That same son, Hunter, is also engaged in a legal
investigation and suit for defrauding a former business partner
Shocking - it's a crime for the republican VP
candidate to have a child who's pregnant even though it's irrelevant to how
she performs her job. It's ok, however, for the democrat VP candidate while
a senator to vote in favor of a company who paid his son over a quarter of a
3 . From the media I learned that Sarah Palin should be
considered "selfish" for agreeing to run for VP knowing about her daughter's condition. Knowing that her public role would bring extra scrutiny on the family is selfish and she should have declined to protect her child (actually heard this on ABC this weekend).
Strange - the same people who said Sarah is selfish for
running for VP did not seem to care about any impact on Chelsea when Bill
Clinton had his dalliance with Monica Lewinsky. That was a private,
personal matter you see.
4. From the media I have learned to be
"concerned" that Sarah Palin probably won't be able to manage her family and do an effective job of being VP at the same time.
Funny - I never heard anything about Hillary's ability
to support Chelsea while re-doing healthcare or any of the other feminist
icons who say you can balance work and family. They also never mention that Barack will have to balance time with his children while meeting with
heads of rogue nations or how Joe Biden's kids don't even have a
mom and will be fighting for his time while he hosts white house coffee
fundraisers and sells nights in the Lincoln bedroom.
5. From the media I have learned that Sarah Palin is
"too inexperienced" to be a heartbeat-away from the presidency.
Apparently taking on corruption in your own party and
running a state that's the same size people-wise as Delaware (hint
hint: that's where Joe Biden is from) is not really experience.
However, time spent as a "community organizer"
and less than 180 days in the senate where you've authored no significant
legislation is just the type of "change" we're looking for from the
top of the ticket.
Funny - inexperience at the top of the ticket is a mantra
for "change" and "hope" while strong practical everyday
experience as the #2 is cause for concern.
6. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin's husband
once got a ticket for fishing without a license.
I haven't heard much about the fact that if he were
still a practicing attorney, the VP candidate Joe Biden would be dis-barred
for plagiarism not once but multiple times.
It's ok to break the rules if you're a democrat
candidate but not Ok if you are the spouse of a republican candidate.
7. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin doesn't
know much about Iraq; in fact we wonder if she even knows where it is.
Sarah's son volunteered into the US military and is
now deployed in Iraq. I guess that doesn't count.
Sarah has spent more time with troops in Iraq (as
commander of the Alaska National Guard she visited Iraq last year) than Obama has even while running for president. In fact, when Sarah went to Iraq
she spent time with the troops. When Obama went there, he skipped a base visit to instead go work out at the Ritz Carlton.
8. From the media I learned that Sarah Palin is a
"lightweight" and she better be a "quick study" to keep up with this team.
Funny, nobody is talking about how, after Barack Obama had
"visited 57 states" according to him he only had "5 more to go" or endless other stupid gaffes that expose who he really is.
9. From the media I have learned that (gasp!), Sarah
Palin's husband was once a registered member of a 3rd party that favored
states' rights (man, this is really bad stuff).
That same media has been silent to the story that when
Barack Obama announced his first senate run, he did so in the home of
William Ayers. Mr. Ayers is an un-repentant terrorist convicted for bombing the pentagon.This same Mr. Ayers said on 9/11 that he and his group did
not do enough to harm our military and he wished he had done more.
During the same time as that comment, he was serving on a board with Barack Obama. All notes and information about their serving together is now locked up by the corrupt Chicago machine and reporter access to those
records are being blocked by the Obama campaign.
If we've had any doubts about the bias of the media,
it's pretty clear now where they stand. Pass this on to some of your friends who are on the fence and who get all their information from Katie Couric,
Wolf Blitzer,Tom Brokaw and the gang. This is egregious and corrupt.
The only way tostop it is to spread information using other outlets and
make these guys irrelevant.
