More US Election Idiocy

If elected I plan to promote world peace!

Republican nominee John McCain has chosen Sarah Palin, the Governor of Alaska as his Vice Presidential running mate. True to Senator McCain’s character this is a rather brilliant but incredibly risky decision – Palin is a woman, which will boost McCain’s chances with the fickle, easily distracted female voter demographic; she is also insanely conservative and religious which will shore up his base with the insanely religious conservative demographic who are distrustful of Senator McCain’s occasional tendency to say things that are not flat-out deranged.  She is also a former beauty queen and still pretty hot.

Less encouragingly she is currently involved in an ethics scandal in Alaska; she is also young (44) and staggeringly inexperienced which is a pretty big deal when you are Vice President for a 72 year old cancer survivor. She will not be looking forward to her debate with Joe Biden, Obama’s VP pick.

Senator McCain is a very smart man, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see Palin exceed expectations and dazzle the voters; but McCain is also a gambler and there is always a chance that his VP will crash and burn: then the house wins. Ahead in the polls once again, Senator Obama is currently the house.

  1. “Palin is a woman, which will boost McCain’s chances with the fickle, easily distracted female voter demographic”.

    Are women voters really more fickle and easily distracted than male voters?

  2. I don’t have a horse in this race, but I think that she is likely to do well; Trig Palin’s mom’s role is to hold McCain’s right flank while he plays to the centre- and she enables him to adopt an energy policy which calls for Alaskan oil drilling.

  3. … as opposed to the consistent, highly focused male voter demographic? haha.

    I think the McCain campaign thinks they are.

  5. I think we are judging this from a social democratic, secular, socially liberal point of view….

    Whether it be right or wrong, there are more Americans who suscribe to Palins point of view than there are not, from what I read about her, she is quite the little Maggie T….
