Oooops, not so fast

9-15-10 scattered brain

Just when I had a moment of feeling positive about Sarah Palin, reading that same newspaper later that day last week….I read a Letter to the Editor by Des Moines resident Deb McMahon, which brought me back to reality.

Sarah Palin, the lipstick wearing pit bull, Mama Grizzly is coming to town, bringing along her entourage of fear mongers, tea party members and Fox News fans. I can only imagine the love fest that will take place when she spews forth her vitriolic Barack Obama bashing.

After all, this is America where you can wrap yourself in the flag while you denigrate our commander in chief. This is America where you can espouse Christian values while questioning the falsely accusing our president’s faith. This is America, where a half-term former governor can rake in millions while saying she’s just like you. Wink, wink.

Wake up America, and smell the malicious moose chili flavored with spicy sacrilege. It is time to elect thoughtful, well-read, issue-driven candidates. And time to say farewell to the commercialized version who truly are without substance.

OK, enough on my part! I will strive NOT to write any more about Palin, unless she throws her hat into the presidential ring. I don't want to get caught up into this political circus!


  1. Both parties make politics very distasteful and why I walk away without hearing either sides. I'd rather bury my head in the sand. Sad but true.

  2. I too am finding the sand a good place to be. Yet Lori, we know it is best to look upward for our strength!

  3. Hooray for Deb McMahon! She says it very well. Wish I had written that piece!
