The Silver Lining after the Election

This was in my inbox this morning:

Subject: The Silver Lining -7 Reasons Not to Kill Yourself

While the election results admittedly make it difficult, I am generally an optimist, and I’m not changing my stripes now. So here’s what I feel good about right now:

· The constructionists on the Supreme Court should be able to hold out another four years before they retire. We wish them the best of health.

· We won’t have to spend four years defending John McCain. Let’s face it, he was a crummy candidate who wilted on most issues important to conservatives. It would have been four painful years followed by a lay-up election for…Obama or Hillary.

· With the economy in the tank, Obama may have somewhat limited flexibility. His plans to turn us into Finland may have to wait.

· Jimmy Carter was a painful experience, but he gave us (cue heavenly choir music) Ronald Reagan. Will Obama give us a Bobby Jindal? Tim Pawlenty? Rudy? We have a deep bench. Start thinking ahead now.

· Since the Democrats control both houses and the White House, there will be no one else to blame when they screw up, which is as inevitable as the sun rising tomorrow. While they will try to pin any problems on George Bush for at least the next millennia, the people will know better.

· The media has now officially been “outed” as in the tank for the Democrat Party. Even liberals know it. MSM credibility has never been so low.

· The New York Times was just demoted to junk bond status by the ratings agencies.

Finally, let’s be happy that it’s finally just over. This has been the longest election season ever and I – a political junkie – have never been so sick of politics.So, cheer up. It’s not all bad. Pass it along to any  of our depressed fellow travelers.

See ya’ll in a few years!!



Sarah Palin and Tina Fey SNL Skit; Not Fair to Women

“I think it’s really sad that in America, just because a woman is running for a high office, we have to make fun of her on Saturday Night Live. There is a black person on SNL, why aren’t they making fun of Obama? Because he is black, that’s why. It makes me so mad.” This is a quote from a 21 year old female college student who happens to be my daughter. Wow! Now that is an opinion!

It happens to be an opinion I agree with as a 51 year old woman. What the heck is going on here? Why is this okay?? I have to admit that Tina Fey is pretty funny doing the Sarah Palin Impressions but why isn’t anyone impersonating Obama? Now I think that would be hillarious!!

I don’t watch SNL but I did see replays on the news, (even that is pathetic). Now whenever I see Sarah Palin speak, I can’t help but think of Tina Fey, who has all the mannerisms down pat, and then I start to laugh and even I have a hard time  taking Mrs. Palin seriously. I have to agree with my daughter, not only is it sad, but it does make me mad. And it should make every mother in America mad. How will our daughters ever be taken seriously if we just write off every woman trying to make a change in this country as a bimbo? I can only hope next time there’s a serious female candidate running for a high office, we can get beyond the sexism and look at content of character. Why is it so many people have gotten past the racism with Obama, but can’t get past the sexism with Palin?

I understand that she is green. She does not have the experience she needs to answer the tough questions being thrown at her by the press. I’d like to have seen them ‘hounding’ Obama in the begining or even now. Oh, that’s right. They can’t because then it would be ‘racist.’

Okay, the game is over. It is time for us to get serious about who is going to be running this country for the next four years.

On ABC News they have this story about the voters depriving McCain of the republican nod by voting for Huckabee in Texas and Ohio. If that happens, the convention delegates would be making the decision. Miracles do happen!
