From a political perspective, the Palin VP pick has worked beautifully for the Republican party. Nobody is talking about the issues for the last few weeks, instead the media and bloggers have been chattering nonstop about Palin.
This will be the last time I ever blog about Sarah Palin, unless the voters of the United States are actually dumb enough to make her the vice president. We need to focus on the issues facing the country, instead of spending time blogging about a VP candidate that is really a red herring.
So what’s today’s Palin shocker? Remember how the Bush administration spent years trying to connect 9-11 to the Iraq war? Remember how the majority of Americans thought we were invading Iraq because of 9-11?
Well, a few years ago, even the Bush administration stopped trying connect 9-11 to Iraq, because even the most ill-informed Americans were starting to realize that Iraq had nothing to with the global war on terror.
Well it turns out that there are still a few people who actually think Iraq has something to do with 9-11, including Sarah Palin.
FORT WAINWRIGHT, Alaska, Sept. 11 — Gov. Sarah Palin linked the war in Iraq with the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, telling an Iraq-bound brigade of soldiers that included her son that they would “defend the innocent from the enemies who planned and carried out and rejoiced in the death of thousands of Americans.”
For once, I’m speechless.. Normally, I think celebrity opinions are absolutely useless, but this Matt Damon clip is on target.
