Give Them Something To Think About

So Adam McKay thinks the Democrats are going to lose this thing. Typical Democrat defeatist attitude, we can't win when the odds are stacked against us. I say if you feel that way, you're probably right, self-fulfilling prophecies and all. There is a way and it's a s simple as ythis:

If Sarah Palin couldn't protect her daughter from guys who wanted to screw with her, how's she going to protect us from terrorists who want to screw with us?

The RNC spent a lot of time and flag waving reminding us all of 9/11. But what they didn't tell us was that the whole thing could have been avoided if a president, their president had been a little more vigilant. We all know about the August 6 2001 PDB delivered to President Bush. If he had done his job as Commander-In-Chief, there would have been no tragedy on that day. He allowed the terrorists to screw with us.

If Sarah Palin couldn't protect her daughter from guys who wanted to screw with her, how's she going to protect us from terrorists who want to screw with us?

Sure, teenage pregnancies happen in the best of homes and is a fairly common occurrence. Teenagers always have and always will engage in premarital intercourse, it's a fact of life. Their hormones are beyond their control at that age, and they feel they are invincible. But just like the Republicans have sent our troops to face the enemy in Afghanistan and Iraq without sufficient body armor, Sarah Palin sent her daughter into an age old battle with out adequate protection.

If Sarah Palin couldn't protect her daughter from guys who wanted to screw with her, how's she going to protect us from terrorists who want to screw with us?

Barack Obama has stated that in this campaign, families should be left out of it. And under normal circumstances, that would be fine. But we're not dealing with human beings here, we're dealing with neocons. People with no conscience, because a conscience stands in the way between doing what's right, and fulfilling an unreal agenda. People who will do anything to win, which is why they always do. And if the situations were reversed, they'd make a field of hay from it, all to serve their own program: endless tax cuts for endless profits made from endless war. And to further their plan, they need to sell us their superiority in matters of national security.

But, if Sarah Palin couldn't protect her daughter from guys who wanted to screw with her, how's she going to protect us from terrorists who want to screw with us?

So ask your friends, your family and your neighbors this question. Put it to your co-workers, acquaintances, strangers you may meet. You may not get an answer,but you're sure to start them to thinking. And once they do that, the rest will fall in place.

9/11 was such a Godsend for the neocons, it's hard to imagine that they actually tried to prevent it.

In any case it's more fun to get all infuriated after the fact, rally the troops and start hollering about "Them!"

Sarah probably figured Jesus was watching out for Bristol. And Jesus has done just as good a job of protecting us against those Islamofascists.

Admit it, you rat basterd, you stole this idea from me!

I have been a negatorian as of late due to all the Palin hype and all the mileage it has been getting in the media, but hey... your question is a GOOD one Lew, and it SHOULD be asked. I WILL ask it. I have had some vague thoughts along that line, kind of like:

If Sarah Palin can't control children in her own family, how can she control an entire country?

People will argue that you can't control teenagers, they will do what they want to do. But hardcore conservatives of the "strict-father" variety will say that is exactly what parents need to do with teens - control them - and if they buck you, then they have to be punished. Bristol may have decided to keep the baby, but I would imagine that a significant portion of her private hell has been (and is being) generated by her mother. So yeah, I'll ask conservatives the question you mention, and I will ask them mine too.

Both should strike a chord beneath those tough hides somewhere.
