Sarah Palin Off and Running For 2012

By Robert Paul Reyes

John McCain demonstrated that he doesn`t have the wisdom and judgement to be President of the United States when he chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. McCain`s cynical, reckless and desperate VP pick has been lambasted not only by liberals, but also by prominent conservative intellectuals.

Palin is the most unqualified and inexperienced vice-presidential candidate in history, but she shows no signs of humility. When Palin is criticized for making a gaffe she just shrugs it off, after all every true servant of God will be attacked by the godless mainstream media.

The electorate isn`t fooled by Palin`s $150,000 wardrobe and her down-home persona, her approval ratings are in the gutter.

McCain`s incomprehensible and unforgivable decision to select Palin as his VP, has turned around to bite him in the rear end. McCain hoped that Palin would attract disgruntled Hillary voters, but instead she has driven away not only female voters but independents as well.

Palin may not be an intellectual, but she knows that the McCain team is going to lose in a landslide. Therefore she has decided to ignore the McCain advisers assigned to her when it suits her, as she lays down a foundation for running for president in 2012.

"Rumblings of an out-of-control, renegade, rogue Sarah Palin surfaced again today when an unidentified source told a CNN reporter that the Republican vice presidential nominee went off message again.

CNN reported that unnamed McCain staffers were not pleased that Palin `went off script Sunday and turned attention back to the controversy over her wardrobe.`

The Alaska Governor has received criticism recently for other episodes where she appeared out of joint with the campaign from holding her own press availability with reporters (her own staff tried to shut it down), disagreeing with the campaign`s decision to pull out of Michigan (she offered up husband Todd to campaign there), and her voiced opposition to campaign "robo-calls" (she called the pre-recorded messages irritating)."

McCain imagined that a woefully unqualified Palin would be subservient and meekly follow orders, but this Pitt Bull isn`t taking any orders from a senile old man. This McCain/Palin rift is so comical, the senior senator from Arizona is getting exactly what he deserves.
