Mini-bush speaks to the masses…

Good afternoon, Netizens...

I have continued to search for situations where Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has spoken on the public record but to little avail. In fact, it seems to me as if John McCain and his campaign team are doing everything in the power to keep her away from the news media and/or the general public. Then I found this excellent David Horsey cartoon in this morning's Seattle Post-Intelligencer that, at least to me, explains why she doesn't speak up and give us the benefit of her vast experience or lack thereof.

David Horsey also has portrayed the indelible link between the Bush regime and Sarah Palin, something that neither John McCain, Sarah Palin nor the Republican Party seem to admit.

It begs the questions, are we really doing God's work in Iraq? This all goes back to what I have already stated a number of times: get out of Iraq and bring me the head of Osama bin Laden. What the United States is doing in Iraq is anything but godly.

Granted, Sarah Palin got her first passport a year and one-half ago. Does that qualify her to conduct foreign policy for the United States of America? Ye Gods, no. That is a frightening vision, her attempting to negotiate with heads of foreign state. Maybe she'll try to convert them to her religion?

Of course, everyone will have an opinion about whether or not to drill for oil in sensitive areas. The ecology of sensitive areas is delicate, and should never be managed by oilfield workers, in my opinion. I have seen what oilfield development can do to the land, and it is ugly. Of course, your opinion of this may differ.

Each of these statements, when taken as part of a whole, are very troublesome to me. More or less, these are things that Sarah Palin has already stated on the record. These are statements of an inexperienced neophyte who lacks the most basic rudiments of Presidential skills.

Are the members of the McCain think tank and George Bush both afraid of what Sarah Palin might say?
