Reference: Pretty Palin is not ready to be vice president, Bangkok Post, September 16, 2008
When Obama was surging in the polls, desperate Republicans compared his popularity with that of Paris Hilton implying that he was pretty but clueless. Now that McCain and Palin are surging in the polls, desperate Democrats are comparing Sarah Palin's popularity with that of the American Idol competition on television saying that she is pretty but clueless (Pretty Palin is not ready to be vice president, Bangkok Post, September 16, 2008). It is partisanship at its worst. The author of the column writes that the real issues facing America are that "The economy is in a tailspin. The financial sector is lurching about on rubbery legs. We're mired in self defeating energy policies. We're at war. And we're still vulnerable to the very real threat of international terrorism.". Yet, it tells us nothing about Palin's views on these topics being itself mired in a weird definition game with respect to whether or not Sarah Palin knows the meaning of a an arbitrary phrase invented by the authors of the book "The Bush Doctrine" and concludes that Palin is a clueless bimbo. If Palin is clueless, so are the American voters. Since she joined McCain, his stock on intrade,com has jumped from under $4 to over $5 while that of Obama has dropped from over $6 to under $5. Clueless liberal columnists are crying in their soup.
