I know my wife is no fan. But I’ve wondered about others.
GenerationXpert takes up the subject and offers some insight into why some GenX women, like herself, do not particularly care for the Palin Drone.
It made sense to me.
Now the question is what about GenX men? No doubt some like her, and some don’t. I’m a GenX guy and I don’t. Why don’t I? Well, let me count the ways.
1) She’s obviously way over her head
2)She couldn’t name one newspaper or magazine that she reads. What other conclusion can one draw than she does not read the news. At least Bush was willing to say he didn’t read the papers, which I didn’t find impressive. Palin tried to dance around it, as if to claim she read widely, but who knows. She could have at least copped to having a weakness for People or US Weekly. Or what about Field and Stream, Guns and Ammo. Something woman, sheesh!
3)Her so-called folksyness is so fucking phoney. I just don’t buy it. I’ve read and heard numerous references that she kills and skins her own food. Well, I’m calling her out, because I think that this is bullshit. It seems akin to Bush liking peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches and “clearing brush” on his Texas “ranch.” I want to see it. I want to see the Palin Drone hunt, track, raise her gun to take aim, and take down, oh, say, a bull elk. Then I want to see her field dress it and skin it. And I’m not talking about still photographs of her kneeling next to a carcass while holding a gun. That is not going to cut it. I want it live or video that can pass the not tampered with test. Because I do not believe that she can do it.
4)The Palin Drone: her voice. I hate the sound of her voice. It is so fucking annoying. One could argue that she can’t help that. Fine. But spare me the affected folksy phrases like, “Doggone.” And, “Darn it al.” Who the hell talks like that outside of cartoons that are making fun of the fact that people don’t really talk like that. It’s like she playing a character in a cartoon.
5)This may be trivial but, fuck it! Last night during the debate she had a wisp of hair that hung down inside of her glasses and against her eyelash. Every fucking time she blinked the wips of hair twitched. It was distratcting for some reason. Sort of like that thing on Edwards’ lip, during the 2004 election, which mysteriously disappeared before the 2008 one came around.
6)In typically Republican fashion she answered the questions she wanted to be asked, not the questions she was actually asked. On top of that, she was dismissive not only of Biden but of Ifill, a find and deservedly respected journalist, spouting about how she didn’t care if he or the moderator didn’t like her answers, because she was going to speak staright to the American people. Bull shit! Not answering question is anything but straight talk.
7)I don’t like her highlights
8)I don’t like her glasses
9)I don’t like that her big hair makes her resemble the creature from Alien.
10)I don’t like her husband. He’s to lurky. He lurks. He’s a lurker. And he looks like a real dick.
11) I don’t like that labeling of her as some “hot” or “babelicious” or whatever the fuck people are saying. She’s not. She scary. She’s the chick that, if I met her, I’d be like, stay away from her. She’s bad news. She’ll make your life hell.
I don’t like, oh, so many things about her. But mostly I don’t like that she could be a 72-year-old heartbeat away from the Presidency.
But here’s the thing. People should not dismiss her. They do so at their and this country’s peril. If McCain does not win. Someone, somewhere would do well to keep tabs on Sarah Palin. Because I would not be surprised to see her return, and next time she’ll be looking to be at the top of ticket. And if you thought Bush was adept at fucking things up, well, my esitmation is that you ain’t seen nothing yet, doggone it.
