Um, about that love

Because I don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea or loose my reputation as a cynic (which I call a realist), I need to clarify my love of Sarah Palin. I’m excited she’s in the race. I think she’s a great politician. Of all the candidates,her ideas on government seem to be closest to mine. I think John McCain is a true hero, a decent if fallable man and an obstinate son of a gun who really ticks me off with his anti-free speech “Campaign Finance Reform” stuff. Really. Ticks. Me. Off.

I think Barack Obama is a fascinating man with a compelling personal story who is really smart in an egg-heady sort of way. I think he would be a good person with which to discuss cabbages and kings.

No kidding. I just hope that if elected, he’s too egg-heady to be effective.

But they are all politicians. And politicians are political. If you fall in love with them they will break your heart. Palin will disappoint anyone who elevates her to Savior of All That’s Good and Holy, just as Obama will (and has) disappoint anyone relying on him to do the same. I don’t think anyone has foisted that sort of adulation on McCain, which is probably the best thing going for him.

So don’t fall in love with politicians. It never ends well.

No, I didn’t forget Joe Biden. I have no use for the man. Of all the people who need to just shut up, he’s seven of them.

    Okay. But can we fall in love with bloggers who articulate just what we’re thinking and with whom we are in complete agreement on Joe Biden? 🙂

    You are so right…

    And there is no candidate that is perfect in every area…don’t wait to vote until you find someone you can agree w/100 percent b/c it ain’t gonna happen (unless you are voting for yourself).

    People who ought to be rejoicing b/c we have a decent VP candidate are unhappy b/c she isn’t at home with her babies (or whatever reason)…sure I’m home w/my kids and I think that’s best – but you just need to go with who’s out there and the one that aligns most closely with your beliefs.

    Yeah, there are no saviors running for office. That job has already been filled.

    You know you and I are complete political opposites (which is weird, because we seem to be complete mothering analogs…). So your love of Palin made me just a little squidgy.

    But… ya know… the whole thing is nothing more than Kabuki Theater anyway. I honestly don’t trust the blue folks to do any better by this horribly fouled-up nation than I do the red folks, and frankly, I am ready to love love love any political figure who actually knows the difference between “health care” and “health insurance” and is able to do something about it.

    Anne, No! I can handle the pressure. (But I heart you, too.)

    “but you just need to go with who’s out there and the one that aligns most closely with your beliefs”

    Edi, if by beliefs, you mean political beliefs, I totally agree. Because I can agree with someone religiously or culturally, but not necessarily with their view of government. I agree with a lot of what Obama says about service, for example. But not about his policy.

    Renae, I agree, but it doesn’t stop people from looking.

    Laureen, it makes my sister squidgy, too. (Hey, sis!) But yeah, I think there is far more that unites us than divides us. I totally agree about the health care thing. The entire U.S. health care system is messed up. Although I suspect that we might have different prescriptions for the problem. (Okay, I don’t really have a prescription. But if I did, I’m sure it would be obnoxiously conservative.)
