Sarah Palin is Awesome!

I wanted to start this post with a really cool picture of an outhouse in Wasilla, Alaska, but since the picture is copyrighted, I'm just supplying a link. Wasilla is, according to Karl Rove, the second largest city in Alaska. Being mayor of this booming metropolis, which is said to have some actual indoor plumbing, is obviously preparation for being a heartbeat from becoming President of the USA. Awesome! Actually it's the fifth largest city in Alaska, but it is the second largest city in Alaska with a population between 5 and 10 thousand. So take that, you America-hating liberals! Mr. Rove was almost accurate in his statement.

I never intended to lapse into political discourse on this blog. I don't have an agenda per se. I am embarassed to say that I voted for W in the last two elections--the first time due to a fear of higher taxes, and the last time because John Kerry chose that weasel John Edwards as his running mate.

But. . . I can't sit by quietly as I read about what's going on now. Take for instance, Ms. Palin's flip-flopping on global warming. She previously denied it is caused by human activity, but now that her running mate acknowledges it is, she's changed her tune, sort of. From the AP's coverage of Palin's recent interview on ABC, I present the following:
In the ABC interview, Palin said she believes that "man's activities certainly can be contributing to the issue of global warming, climate change. ... Regardless, though, of the reason for climate change, whether it's entirely, wholly caused by man's activities or is part of the cyclical nature of our planet — the warming and the cooling trends — regardless of that, John McCain and I agree that we gotta do something about it."
So, even though she is still hedging her bets about the cause, she and McCain are going to do something about it. Awesome! And if, as she apparently really believes, global warming is caused by cyclical warming and cooling trends, she and McCain can do something about that. Altering the cyclical nature of our planet! Awesome!

As to her qualifications for dealing with Russia, she had this to say:
Pressed about what insights into recent Russian actions she gained by living in Alaska, Palin told Gibson, "They're our next-door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."
So even though it's not clear that Governor Palin has actually seen Russia from a distance, it appears someone in Alaska has. Awesome!

Is it my imagination, or has the Sarah Palin phenomenon turned the tedious world of elective politics into something akin to a reality TV show? Are we all, to a greater or lesser extent, buying into it? And will we come to our senses before November?
