Is Sarah Palin the Anti-Christ?
So I'm watching CNN's breathless coverage of Sarah Palin's arrival in Alaska last night. Anderson Cooper is so excited he keeps repeating over and over again that CNN is the ONLY network carrying it live.
The reporter at the airport is going on about how many in the large crowd waiting to welcome her home are carrying large plastic red lips. And how MOVING it must be for the Palin family, since her husband finishes his snowmobile races right across the street. Wow.
And then suddenly there SHE is. The Queen of Darkness. The redneck from Wasilla.
And now the crowd is going WILD. Some organizer with a bullhorn is trying to get them to chant McCain-Palin...but the mob is screaming Sarah!!!! Sarah !!!! And waving those big red lips.
When David Gergen is asked what he thinks about all this he says he finds it "rare to the point of being bizarre."
But I'm wondering whether The Barracuda is the Anti-Christ. Because she's managed to turn everything upside down. Experience is bad, ignorance is strength, all you need to be President is be a Mom, and if you have a child with a bun in the oven even better.
She's just as flawed as we are," Tweddle said. "It's not the fact that she's a woman but the way she does it all. And let me tell you: There're more American parents with unwed pregnant teenaged children than American parents with Harvard grads. She's real."
And if you write Wasilla backwards it comes out to ALL I SAW. And all I see is madness.
Oh I know she still has her first interview to prep for. And Maureen Dowd has some choice words about that....and some tough questions.
Does she really think Adam, Eve, Satan and the dinosaurs mingled on the earth 5,000 years ago?
Does she talk in tongues or just eat caribou tongues?
And Andrew Sullivan has the obvious follow up video.
But when I see Sarah Palin I don't see My Fair Lady.
I see a hideous Christianist zealot, trying to make ignorance a virtue, riding a wave of popular hysteria fanned by the idiot media.
And a movie that's more like this one...
Tell me when this nightmare is over. I don't dare look anymore. Who knew mindless celebrity culture could lead to fascism and nuclear war?
The idiot chickens have come home to roost. The train called America is heading for The Abyss.
And I wonder if anyone can stop it....
