Politics Is Becoming A Circus

After seeing Sarah Palin near well become our vice president, I thought that America’s stupidity couldn’t possibly get any worse.   During the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, I thought I’d seen it all.

She was arrogant, stupid, and thrown off balance by simple questions.  Katie Couric asked her, “What publications do you regularly read?”  She basically replied, “Read?  Oohhhhh.  I read em’ all.”  And it definitely shows, doesn’t it? *rolls eyes*

She’s a beautiful woman who they hoped would infuse energy into the Republican party.  She’s beautiful alright, but her head’s full of air.  I don’t think anyone could anticipate how badly she’d perform.  I think the McCain campaign realized their mistake not long afterward and tried to salvage things the best they could.  They tried to prep her for the interviews, but she was beyond help.  She improved a little, but overall they failed.  She started to jumble up all the political one-liners Karl Rove was giving her, and it was an absolute disaster.

You’d think those interviews would’ve destroyed her political career.  You’d think she would have been silently brushed aside and never heard from again.  But what happens?  She becomes a top news contributor at Fox News, has interviews near every day on all the top news networks, and has millions of people following everything she says.  Even liberal networks cover every little thing she does.

The people of this country must be really dumb.  When I walk around the store buying groceries, I can’t help but wonder to myself, “Are these people I’m seeing Sarah Palin supporters?  How about that woman over there? Or that guy over there?”

And get this guys, the stupidity seems to be multiplying.  Now we have a woman named Christine O’Donnell, whose stupidity trumps even that of Palin.  Behold the Republican nominee for state senator of Delaware!

To her, evolution is just a theory with no evidence to back it.

Well, as the senator from Tennessee mentioned, evolution is a theory and it’s exactly that. There is not enough evidence, consistent evidence to make it as fact, and I say that because for theory to become a fact, it needs to consistently have the same results after it goes through a series of tests. The tests that they put — that they use to support evolution do not have consistent results. Now too many people are blindly accepting evolution as fact. But when you get down to the hard evidence, it’s merely a theory. But creation — well, creationism, in essence, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods. And there is just as much, if not more, evidence supporting that.

Here’s some more quotations from her,

“It is not enough to be abstinent with other people, you also have to be be abstinent alone. The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery, so you can’t masturbate without lust.”

“God may choose to heal someone from cancer, yet that person still has a great deal of medical bills. The outstanding bills do not determine whether or not the patient has been healed by God.”

“A candidate said several years ago, ‘I’m not concerned the reason you vote for me as long as you vote for me.'”

“If we as a nation tolerate sin, generations to come will reap the effects of that. For example, we took the Bible and prayer out of public schools, now we’re having weekly shootings practically.”

– Various quotations from Christine O’Donnell

What about the 12 year old boy who committed suicide because he felt guilty for masturbating?  How can people saying such stupid things possibly get political support?

I guess Christine wants us to go back to faith healing and praying to God for miracles.  She’s definitely not going to be a supporter of scientific research, I can assure you all of that.

She tells everyone it’s always a “sin” to lie, then believes she can tell her constituents anything in order to get elected.  And apparently, because we’ve ruled it unconstitutional to force kids to partake in religious events in public schools, we’re on our road to weekly school shootings.  You’re either a Christian or you’re obviously a murdering scumbag with no hope of any sort.

This nation is becoming what you find in the movie Idiocracy.

If these were small fringe groups with very little support, I wouldn’t even be talking about it.  But sadly, Sarah Palin may well run for President in 2012 and she may even win.  It’s scary.

I wonder how long before this becomes a real TV show.
