In Case You Haven't Seen It

I can't say it better than my friend Paul, so:

And a clue to Palin: It ain't no "worldview," it's an approach to foreign policy that took us preemptively into Iraq, and it could take us preemptively into Iran, North Korea, or Syria. Whether you agree with it or not, a vice president should have some semblance of an idea what it means. A lot is at stake folks.


The most important part of that quote is, "Whether you agree with it or not, a vice president should have some semblance of an idea what it means." It hearkens back to John Stewart's comments on the Obama/elitist issue: These people should be a whole lot smarter than us. So smart, in fact, that if we were to ever walk into a room with them, we should immediately feel embarrassed by just how stupid we are. I don't want someone in power who I think I might possibly be smarter than. I have enough friends; I don't give a fuck if I think it might be a good time to have a beer with one of them.

Dude! That has been my entire point. I don't WANT to think that "one of us could be a heartbeat away from being that president of the United States" That's F*&ing Scary!! Some super smart person, who knows a HELL of a lot more than I do, should be a heartbeat away from being the president, not someone telling, "how can you tell the difference" jokes in a nationally televised speech!! Whether they're democrat or republican!!!
