Which writers write this – the McCain camp or Jon Stewart’s writers?
It has been long-thought that the Americans don’t do or get irony. But I have to diagree – they are so superior at it, it is us, the rest of the world that do not.
It is patantly obvious when reading some of Palin’s speeches, or, I should say those that are written for her.
If this was Saturday Night Live – I would simply have a good giggle at it and let it go by – but this is a serious race for the US White House – and no one is batting an eyelid:
Ethics woes aside, Palin focused her attention on abortion — an issue that rallies the conservative base but some say alienates independent and women voters.
“In times like these with wars and financial crisis, I know that it may be easy to forget even as deep and abiding a concern as the right to life, and it seems that our opponent kind of hopes you will forget that,” Palin told a crowd in Johnstown. “He hopes that you won’t notice how radical, absolutely radical his idea is on this and his record is until its too late.”
Can you see the obvious in that? The right to life AND sending young people off to war in far off lands? And that Barack is radical because he goes along with a decision, Row V Wade, that is decades old – a woman’s right to chose – man, that is radical!
But Palin said Obama’s record on the matter is too extreme to be ignored, and she spent 10 minutes of her 30-minute speech discussing abortion.
“A vote for Barack Obama is a vote for activist courts that will continue to smother the open and democratic debate that we deserve and that we need on this issue of life,” she said.
OK – but we should ask her, as she is all FOR States having the right to chose on their statue books – will she come out and say that the radicals who bomb clinics, threaten the lives of nurses and doctors, even murdering them – is to be condemned by her if she should get the nod by the American people?
Thought not – that seems a bit radical to me – that a VP pick is all for one American killing another American over the right to life or choice – but somehow thinks that a hard fought legal case should be ignored by the people. If Ms Poodle really wants to get rid of Roe V Wade, why not take out another law suit to fight it in the courts?
No – that not good enough? Hmmmmmmm.
Palin opposes abortion in all cases, including rape and incest, except when a mother’s life is in danger, and said she believes Roe v. Wade should be overturned and the decision given to the states.
Real clear on that one then – so long as the baby can get old enough to go fight a war and get killed in another country – alls good with her? Oh – Kay!
Irony – oh the irony!
