Let the world change you... and you can change the world

Won’t Get Fooled Again?

Matt Taibbi pretty much sums up the Sarah Palin phenomenon here. Funny stuff — but also scary. For anyone who thinks Palin has no chance whatsoever of getting elected at some point in the future, I have two words for you — George Bush. Inspite of having the IQ of a rutabaga and the common sense of a door knob, George Bush got elected to the Presidency not once, but twice! That tells you everything you need to know about the American electorate and their ability to elect the Village Idiot to the highest office in the land. Remember that Bush was just a front man for a cabal of right-wing extremists led by Dick Cheney, and it was this group of radicals that were actually running the country. They just used Bush to gain power and hold on to it. And the American public fell for it — hook, line, and sinker. So there’s no reason to doubt that these same monsters could do a repeat with Sarah Palin as the idiot-in-charge. So laugh all you want at what a bumbling fool Palin is, but also remember just how dangerous she could be. The American people can certainly be fooled again.
