I love politics. I love how pretty much every politician is completely full of shit. I love how they can dodge any question they’re ever asked. I love how they spin everything. It’s a beautiful and impressive thing to behold and this is turning out to be one of the most fun presidential campaigns ever.
I love how people wonder if McCain knew that Palin’s daughter was pregnant when he picked her. Of course he did. I’m sure he’s got people that work out all the endless possibilities before they make any political decision. They probably stayed up all night thinking of all the different scenarios and they decided it was worth the risk because it’s just one more thing that makes her look like a regular middle-class American. The base will love it. And if anyone criticizes her, we’ll accuse them of being sexist pigs. Brilliant!
Speaking of middle-class, I read on some blog that Palin and her husband together bring in around $225,000 per year. I don’t know if that’s true, but in my part of the world that’s considered not so much “middle-class” as it is “fucking rich.” Yeah, I know–“Anyone richer than you is rich and anyone poorer than you is poor.” Whatever. That’s still not my definition of middle class. And that’s okay. Be rich all you want. There’s nothing wrong with it. (And, yes, I am well aware that many people will disagree with me on my definition of middle class.)
Anyway. Like I was saying, this campaign season is awesome. And I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
