Hail Mary Pass
Now that the political chips have fallen and Barack Obama is President Elect and already at work assembling his teams the Republican consultants for John McCain are throwing Sarah Palin under the bus. It was said that as the short list for McCain’s running mate got shorter and weaker something needed to be done to give his run for office a lift and Palin was their answer. As she was brought out and introduced to the world as the possible next VP and a heart beat away from being the most powerful person on the face of the planet I knew this was the last nail in the coffin of the Republican Campaign. I’m no expert but I know a losing team when I see one and an old man with a beauty queen as a running mate will not win an election for the highest office in the land. So now the back peddling begins with laying the blame at the feet of Palin when again I know who’s at fault. John and his campaign organizers are solely responsible for the embarrassment brought upon his run for office and Palin played the game as best she could, followed their lead, jumping through the hoops they held before her and although completely unqualified, held up like a champ. Now it’s time for her to go back to Alaska and finish her term as Governor then fad into obscurity but I have the feeling that we’ll be seeing a lot of her in the future, hopefully not in politics but in the role she is destine to play, an anchor for Fox cable news… right next to Karl Rove.
