I was on the phone with Lis Wiehl of Fox News. Lis was filling in for Steve Malzberg, a popular conservative radio talk show host here in New York. Basically, I called into give my assessment of the Vice Presidential debates tomorrow night. Ladies and Gentlemen, step right up! It’s…
SARAH BARRACUDA PALIN vs. SLOPPY JOE BIDEN.
I don’t know about you but I’d rather be a “barracuda” than a “sloppy Joe”.
Anyways, I believe that this debate will be watched more than the first McCain/Obama debate that went down last Friday. No question, the whole world will be watching. Why? It’s the only VP debate and BOTH candidates have so much to lose.
So what was Mr.L’s assessment to Ms. Weihl?
I’m taking a gamble when I say this but, Sarah Palin, and the entire McCain campaign, have been “playing possum” with the national knee jerk liberal news media. John McCain knows what the liberal media did to him. After all, for many of us conservatives, McCain wasn’t our first choice. Since our “come to Jesus” moment, we can recall that, during the primaries, the media held McCain up like their darling.
We knew this was a set up from the get-go. They were setting McCain up for the ultimate fall. They patted Gramps on the head until he was nominated and, when he was, they turned on him like rabid pit bulls. All of a sudden, they brought up everything. They brought up his age, McCain/(enter) and his association Keating Five. The latter for which he was long ago exonerated.
They played possum.
But it didn’t work. John McCain is a man who spent time in solitary confinement in a Viet-Cong prison. When you spent time in a room the size of a box you know how to stay alive. You know how to fight.
Flash forward to the present.
Sarah Palin is playing possum.
This is just one man’s humble opinion. I could be right, I could be wrong. I’d rather be any of those two than be left.
Sarah Palin, an avid hunter, knows what playing possum is all about. It’s the art of apparent death. It’s a defense mechanism. Play dead, the predator thinks your dead you live another day and figure out when to strike out at your opponent.
Think it can’t be applied to presidential politics? Think again.
The media underestimated Palin before. They did it from the moment that John McCain picked her. They commented that she wasn’t ready. They doubted whether or not she could deliver a home run speech at the RNC. They doubted whether or not she could hold the public’s attention. McCain’s rallies, which only had 2-5,000 people in attendance pre-Palin, now average 10 to 12, 0000. Not to mention her appearance in Flordia, which drew 70,000 people.
You see where I’m going with this?
You saw the Katie Couric interview. What do you think? Do you really believe that Palin doesn’t know what McCain stands for specifically? And why should Sarah Palin or John McCain reveal ANYTHING to a person who once had the Clintons over to her Park Avenue apartment for a sleepover?
And why should Palin even tell this woman, who’s just one appendage of the Obama campaign, who let SLOPPY JOE slide when he told her that “FDR was president during the great depression” or “I’d like to introduce Barack America”, what newspapers she reads?
They attacked her. They attacked her kids.
Play possum. Let them think you’re stupid Sarah.
It’s worked for you so many times before.
And when the time is right, pull out the shotgun and blow his fucking head off.
