“When the going gets weird, the weird go pro.”

July 6, 2009

This great quote is from the late Hunter Thompson and I thought it a fun way to start the new week.

I don’t care what you’re political stripe may be but Sarah Palin’s latest actions are unusual to say the least and the quote seems apropos.

Paul Begala had a great piece in the Huffington Post this weekend that uses the quote and you need to read it as it sums up the bizarre world of politics of late pretty well…enjoy!!

Palin – “Send in the Clowns” – Or How Not To Play in the Big Leagues

July 3, 2009

“Is that all there is?” Saracuda resigning and trying to be taken seriously once again? I have never in my life seen anyone in public life so shallow, self absorbed and unprepared for the work she does, let alone aspires to. There is a great post at Progressive Alaska. The Vanity Fair article is even more interesting and revealing…

The good folks at Mudflats also weigh in and they are the best there is for AK politics.

Hopefully this will be the last act of this idiot…but something tells me that she isn’t smart enough to stop making a fool of herself.

Sanford Fails his “3 AM” Moment

June 24, 2009

Now that what we all thought has proven to be true just how dumb is this guy?

As a high profile outspoken governor just how did he think he could hide from the truth?

Lying to his staff and wife, turning off his phone and Blackberry, disappearing like someone who has Alzheimer’s, please!!! Hiking in Appalachia??

I could go on and on but give me a break. I could give a hoot about his personal life but would expect a man like this to at least be able to figure out a more secretive and private way to carry on an affair.

The lack of understanding of the self created media circus that follows him and his behavior here is his 3 AM moment.

God forbid he ever had to make decisions for us all!
