Confused yet? You will be young Skywalker, you will be.
In a life that has lasted 40 plus years I have seen and heard a lot – much of is total bullshit, a lot actually informative. Many a thing just trivia. But this story at our good and searching for the perfect political story – CNN, really caught my eye.
It starts off with the catch – Joe Biden isn’t as intelligent as Fur coat and no knickers, Ms Palin.
Yeah, seriously – with a simple Google search you can see that Palin is as thick as pig shit and Joe Biden isn’t – but the CNN headline says otherwise so you read on – I did, and then the truth begins to flow out of the story.
It’s all to do with sentence and word analysis.
An analysis carried out by a language monitoring service said Friday that Gov. Sarah Palin spoke at a more than ninth-grade level and Sen. Joseph Biden spoke at a nearly eighth-grade level in Thursday night’s debate between the vice presidential candidates.
The analysis noted that the “passive voice can be used to deflect responsibility; Biden used active voice when referring to [Vice President Dick] Cheney and [President] Bush; Palin countered with passive deflections.”
“It obscures the doer of the action,” said Language Monitor President Paul Payack, an independent with no political affiliation.
But higher grade level doesn’t necessarily mean better sentence, Payack said. He pointed to Palin’s second-to-last sentence in the debate, which the formula put at a grade level of 18.3:
“What I would do, also, if that were ever to happen, though, is to continue the good work he is so committed to of putting government back on the side of the people and get rid of the greed and corruption on Wall Street and in Washington,” Palin said.
“When she said it, it sounded good, but on paper it’s a completely different animal,” Payack said. “It’s like, what is that?”
Ah – so…um, huh?
Everyone who saw the debate knows that Joe Biden won – it is obvious. Those who support the poodle with Walmart lipstick says she won for simply turning up – high bar that one. She certainly could take charge if a 9/11 ever happened again!
This is the overall problem with Palin – not just that she isn’t ready to do the job – even she really knows that, it is because the American people, if they are honest, do not want a folksy down to Earth Mum who looks after the kids. Mums who do that are the ones who are saying this – they know how hard a job it is to be a mum, they, like so many others want a person who is going to get them back out of the crap they are in now. If they, the American voter, wanted a un-intellectual moron as president they would have voted for George Bush! Oh wait a sec!?
As they did vote for Bush they have seen how disastrous that was for the USA – why oh why would the American voter not only vote for Bush again – but a Bush split in two? That is what they are voting for if they vote for McCain/Palin – McCain because he wants to revisit Vietnam, but the US wins this time, and Palin because she has the ability to think on her feet while aiming at a tin can with an assault rifle. Put those two into a very large blender and you would get George Bush as the end product – the perfect reason why McCain picked Annie Oakley.
It has been said by better men than me – if you want four more years of George Bush – vote for McCain.
If you want the US back – vote for Obama – it really is as simple as that.
