John Rogers, writer of things that I won’t mention cause it’ll diminish what is actually an impressive talent, compared Sarah Palin to The Smiler.
He’s got a point.
He’s got a point because she’s doing these things and nobody from the Democratic Party is calling her on her shit.
We all know the definition of insanity is to repeat the same thing and expect a different result: Well so far the passive “Leave em be” strategy that any Democratic candidate uses, qualifies for a frontal lobotomy and a lie down in a soft padded room STAT.
I don’t know what worries me more: The way John McCain’s group has managed to ply Palin’s obvious politcal naevity into a strength by letting spew out any old shit under the guise of “She don’t know better” or “She’s a fresh voice” or “She’s got sass/spirit/or some shit” — or the fact that she’s willing to let them.
Why is it that everyone except the Obama camp is reluctant to call her on any or everything?
Surprised to note also that Aaron Sorkin – The West Wing – dabbles in fanfiction on request: Washington Post asked him for a dream script on Barack Obama meeting fictional President Jed Bartlett. Although have to say that despite the whole works being fictional, the message is true. Can’t post links at the moment but googling “Aaron Sorkin Fanfiction” should do the job.
