You’re No Hillary!

I got a kick out of NYT Columnist, Gail Collins’, put down of McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin in her Op-Ed this morning, Baked Alaska. If old McCain thinks this selection will immediately scoop up a bunch of disenchanted Hillary supporters, he may be in for a surprise. Of course, the MSM will be sure to find such people and interview them, thus making sure the world gets the impression there are tons of these disgruntled people hanging around just waiting for their chance to vote McCain. The MSM’s still in love with the so-called maverick and will quickly (already have) label Palin as yet another lovable maverick. But Collins has some good arguments for why women in general might not be flocking to this new Republican ticket, and her closing line, referring to that famous put-down of Dan Quayle by Lloyd Benson, is a zinger:

Joe Biden may already be practicing his drop-dead line for the vice-presidential debate: “I know Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is a friend of mine, and governor, you’re no Hillary Clinton.”

    What a hypocrite! All this time saying Obama had no experience…well what happens when his Alzheimers gets bad and we’re stuck with (WHO?!)It’s all about the oil, and he THINKS that Hillary supporters will vote for him just because his running mate is a woman. PFFFFT :roll:

    A friend’s husband posted this on a car forum we belong to. It’s very long and torture to watch, so just forward it to about 11:35 on the bottom, and you will see what looks at old geezer keep staring at her butt.

    Thanks for your comment, Debi. I looked at that video and saw McCain’s eyes shifted downward at about 11:35 in , as you said. Looks like he held that gaze for 10 or 20 seconds, or more. I also thought McCain looked pretty lame in general. He seemed to have trouble knowing what to do with his fingers. Well, we’re supposed to sympathize with him because of his POW treatment. It sure is pathetic if that’s all he has to run on, but they’ll play it up to the hilt.

    Thanks, BE and Debi. Yes, Lloyd Benson really started a classic! And now the daughter has to get married of course. But I think the whole thing is meant to be a distraction, probably cooked up by Karl Rove.
