Idiocracy & Caribou Barbie

The term "Caribou Barbie" (in quotes) searched on Google nets 15,300 results. That sure didn't take long.

Nevermind that she took little Wasilla, Alaska from a debt-free city to $19 million in debt in her short term, the Rove Machine is selling her as a "fiscal conservative."

Say what you will about the manufacture of Obama, how he is a creation of the Axelrod marketing machine. I have said so much myself. But what we see happening right now is surreal. A total unknown (about whom much more is becoming known) is being sold to the American voting public as a "revolution." Energize that base, "Base" being an excellent synonym for "totally base."

While Mrs. Palin is hiding from the media and learning foreign policy from Joe Lieberman, Obama's star is fading in the afterglow of America's initial introduction to Caribou Barbie and her one speech, written by Bush's speech writers and delivered artfully by the former sportscaster. A quick study, Mrs. Palin will emerge from hiding and dupe millions into thinking that she is a thoughtful, experienced and poised leader, ready to assume the office of President of the United States tomorrow.

If this country elects McCain, (who has sadly been eclipsed by his running mate) we are much closer to Idiocracy than I thought. But I have every expectation that my brain-dead countrymen will do just that.

Now might be a good time to watch that movie.

  • She isn't hiding. She's waiting until the media promises to be respectful.

    TOTALLY different. :P

  • Yeah, I agree with you on the book thing as a general rule, but I can remember some spicy Heinlien (sp?) I read in the high school library that was rated a very strong R, so who knows? You always bring out the best points in politics. Here's my view this time around, with an introductory analogy: So you need a car, you go get that $9900 Ferarri V-12 with the synchronizers ( they are an option on some redheads ) and you enjoy it, right? Truth is, you can't have that dream car at the dream price, and you end up with a 3 yr old mini-SUV or something for $11,500 from the nice little dealership just outside of town. Our vote is not an ideal, but something with a budget, and we have to get the best for ourselves, family, and dare I say it country. Bridges, Taxes, Illegals and what they do to healthcare costs; all of these are preferences, and we may or may not agree, and that's OK. But when it comes to the definition of life, it's not only above BO's paygrade, it's above his ass-kissing intellect to understand. Appreciate all you do for both sides of my brain.
