I have held off discussing politics up until now. However! I rend my garments and gnash my teeth that I could not liveblog the VP debate. Never so poignantly have I pined for a laptop. I didn’t expect to get so riled up beforehand, but that woman…no. No.
I actually started to feel nervous and embarrassed for Palin when she rambled and said nukyular repeatedly and reversed her “attributed to”‘s, but that didn’t last long. My empathy, that is. Her non-sentences and slogans persisted. She clearly has her catch-phrases and talking points memorized, and I’m no public speaker, but her folksy, down-home, my gerunds don’t need no dang gs on their end bullshit is like fingernails scraping across a chalkboard to my ears.
And did she fucking wink at me?
I’m not so sure about the three reasons given, but the intro is great in this article in TIME.
I won’t say I hate her. But I would have trouble narrowing down to three my reasons for emphatically disliking her and hating the idea of her potentially having to be President.
