Passionate for Palin in 2012?

If you’re one of the those Passionate for Palin People, Steve Schmidt, McCain’s campaign manager who helped choose Sarah Palin as John McCain’s running mate in 2008, has some tough love for you: Palin is talented but not a winning candidate for the GOP in 2012.

And I would add: nor in 2016, 2020, etc, etc, etc.

TV cameras like her though so that’s something especially if you like to watch very attractive train wrecks.

To paraphrase David Letterman last night about Palin’s new 400-page book, she wrote it herself and agonized over every word…and you will, too.

And of course, I can’t mention Dave today without also noting his confession last evening of sexual affairs with some of his show’s staff members (ladies, of course – no big surprise, imo) and the attempted extortion of an alleged $2 million by a CBS employee who has now been indicted.

Dave announced the ‘hinky’ situation with as much class as one could hope for and says he won’t be talking about it again. And that was quite a sustained amount of applause he got for discussing it as he did, too.

Just goes to show that negative traits or actions of human beings fare better for everyone concerned when they’re exposed to the light rather than hidden.

For as Richard Nixon taught us – yet Washington keeps forgetting – it’s not the crime, it’s the cover-up that gets ya.

Actually with Nixon, I say it was the crime. But I lived in DC during Watergate and hated what tricky Dick did with the place – my favorite city!

Cheney backs Palin – oh – and McCain

Endorsing from a safe location – Wyoming! – erstwhile VP Cheney has come out in full support of Sarah Palin and John McCain. You gotta love them: Palin and Cheney – two gun totin’ straight shooters around the campfire tearing raw meat with their canines, blood dribbling down their proud chins and devil take the hindmost. (Lucifer prefers dark meat of the drumstick, one assumes.)

Well, Dick’s endorsement seems kind of late but better than never, one supposes – especially for all those GOP-ers who adore the secretive dark-sider, Dick Cheney, and who plan to vote (or have early-voted) in support of Bush-Rove & friends in preparation for the US eeking through 4 more years of neocon madness:

Of course, in light of where America stoops now after 8 years of Bush-Cheney, my question to them has to be: are you crazy?

Check the sidebar’s Feeds for the latest Stars Over Washington post where I make rather spiteful comments about Bush’s natal Mars in Virgo and America being Battered by Bush. Just remember: I’m holding myself back with ladylike restraint – even with Bush’s 81% DISapproval rating. And he’s still got several weeks in which to make mischief and perform mayhem.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
