What I’m Wondering About

  1. How higher math works in Wasilla: If Sarah Palin landed $27 million in earmarks for Wasilla as mayor, how the heck did she end up leaving the town $20 million in debt?
  2. Renaming Rights: Why don’t we just bow to reality and call it the “Double Talk Express”?
  3. Whither Independents? What happened to all of the independent voter focus groups? I can’t find much on this, other than articles that show little movement toward her. The silence seems odd, if she’s making such a difference in the overall polls.
  4. McCain ties to a Failed Bank: Speaking of deathly quiet, why the silence over last week’s failure of Silver State Bank, where Andrew McCain until recently sat on the audit committee (which, according to the WSJ, was “responsible for overseeing the company’s financial condition.”)?
  5. Where’s Oprah?!?

What the …? It Just Gets Deeper

Whoa! I cant’ even keep up with the onslaught! Here are my new choice WT…? bits:

  • Troopergate: Why, that’s a page out of the Bush playbook, isn’t it?
  • The lawsuit filed against her by the parents of autistic boy who has to live in another state because she won’t approve state funds to help — whoops! — special-needs children, after all!
  • Karl Rove on why a governor is not qualified to be VP: “With all due respect again to Governor Kaine, he’s been a governor for three years, he’s been able but undistinguished,” Rove said. “I don’t think people could really name a big, important thing that he’s done. He was mayor of the 105th largest city in America.” (Wonder what number Wasilla weighs in at on that largest-city list

My New Favorite Quote

From the Anchorage Daily News:

“State Senate President Lyda Green said she thought it was a joke when someone called her at 6 a.m. to give her the news.

” ‘She’s not prepared to be governor. How can she be prepared to be vice president or president?” said Green, a Republican from Palin’s hometown of Wasilla. “Look at what she’s done to this state. What would she do to the nation?’ “

What the …?: Sarah Palin

Where oh where to start?

This could go on and on. The only explanation I can think of for this nutsoid decision is that it is blatant pandering to the religious right to try to secure that fractured base. But I also wonder if McCain’s ego is so gyne-(oops! Freudian slip)-normous that he can’t even put the good of the country before his political aspirations. No matter how you look at, it’s scary s*&#.
