With Cher slamming the Republicans in her tweets, it’s only fair to give Sarah Palin a chance to give President Obama her best shot.
At 11:23 p.m. Saturday she tweeted, “Congratulations to Mitt Romney on his choice of Congressman Paul Ryan as his running mate. President Obama has declared that this election is about 'two fundamentally different visions' for America. Goodness, he’s got that right. Our country cannot afford four more years of Barack Obama’s fundamentally flawed vision. We must now look to this new team, the Romney/Ryan ticket, to provide an alternate vision of an America that is fiscally responsible, strong, and prosperous — an America that understands and is proud of her exceptional place in the world and will respect those who fight to secure that exceptionalism, which includes keeping our promises to our veterans.
"When I think about the direction our country is rapidly drifting in, I can’t help but look at California as a cautionary tale. The Golden State once boasted the entrepreneurial innovation of Silicon Valley, the American creative engine of the arts, economically powerful and beautiful cities from San Francisco to San Diego, and fertile farmlands that helped feed the nation. Now it is descending into financial ruin accompanied by an exodus of middle class Californians leaving for other states. As one writer put it, California’s 'fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape.'
"Obama’s vision for America will make the rest of the country look like California, minus the beautiful scenery and warm weather.”
Ms. Palin goes on for another 2000 or so words and keeps calling President Obama, “Candidate Obama.” She does this seven times! I hate to be the one to break the bad news, but until Nov. at least, we think the man’s president.
We’re trying to get up to speed with Paul Ryan. We were tackling the intricacies of his budget policy and admiring his hair, but still felt he was an enigma. But thanks to our conservative friends at Twitchy we uncovered a whole other side to him.
They published this picture of Ryan in jaunty, hunting attire. At first he looks like he’s cuddling the deer. On closer inspection we realize, au contraire, he’s just shot the deer and now he’s holding up its head and smiling for the camera! The man likes killing animals.
Anyway, his supporters love it. JDtheBard writes, “Ok I just saw that pic of Paul Ryan holding a beautiful buck he shot. I'm more than stoked now. I'm a little in love.”
