Near, so near to conclusion of the extreme-worse of all US presidential administrations, we find ourselves also with a view of the extreme-worse of all presidential candidates — Jackboot John McCain is the most retarded (not PC, we know), shameless incompetentÂ ever to attempt the White House.
(The above pix from bewarethemarketplaceidols).
One gut-clenching, hands-over-face experience is Jackboot John’s heir apparent Sarah Palin’s interview with Katie Couric — whimsical, Gracie Burns-funny while shitting-the-pants scary — all at once.
If Sarah wasn’t on a possible path to the Oval Office, if she was just maybe a freakin’ governor of a state being interviewed on CBS, if a lot of shit…
This entire scenario would then be black-humored, Dr. Strangelove-like-hilarious.
Watch the incredible Tina Fey as Sarah on Saturday night’s SNL via HuffPost here.
And for the real thing: Sarah interviewed by Couric last week (Amy Poehler plays Couric in the above skit) also via HuffPost here.
This evening Couric interviewed Jackboot John and Sarah, together again for the first time — “gotcha journalism” the scapegoat for Sarah’s foreign policy quip about tracking militants into Pakistan.
Jackboot John has got to be the most-dumb-ass man to ever hold himself up for president.
Marc Ambinder’s blog at The Atlantic has a section of convoluted dialogue between the three — Couric finally being a journalist, Sarah following Jackboot John’s interruptions — the whole scene written-out is reminiscent of a parlor-room scene in a freaked-out ‘Father Knows Best‘ episode.
However, it’s hobbed-about that CBS might have more of Katie’s interview with Sarah from the other night, according to the Washington Post, And the worst may be yet to come for Palin; sources say CBS has two more responses on tape that will likely prove embarrassing. (Hat tip to dailykos.)
As was said above with a sitting-on-the-shitter-grimace, Jackboot John’s run for the White House is probably the worse in US history — way-badder than Thomas E. Dewey in 1948, even Michael Dukakis in ’88 — and Sarah is just a horror extension of the McCain presidential campaign.
Sarah is just the obvious lie.
Matt Taibbi, the always-interesting political writer for Rolling Stone, offers up a view of the RNC and Sarah Palin as a reflection of the floating-toward-the-abyss USA — fat, sassy, and from-the-looks-of-it, dumb-ass blind.
- Sarah Palin is a symbol of everything that is wrong with the modern United States.
As a representative of our political system, she’s a new low in reptilian villainy, the ultimate cynical masterwork of puppeteers like Karl Rove.
But more than that, she is a horrifying symbol of how little we ask for in return for the total surrender of our political power.
Not only is Sarah Palin a fraud, she’s the tawdriest, most half-assed fraud imaginable, 20 floors below the lowest common denominator, a character too dumb even for daytime TV — and this country is going to eat her up, cheering her every step of the way.
All because most Americans no longer have the energy to do anything but lie back and allow ourselves to be jacked off by the calculating thieves who run this grasping consumer paradise we call a nation.
And Sarah’s RNC speech:
- It was a virtuoso performance.
She appeared to be completely without shame and utterly full of shit, awing a room full of hardened reporters with her sickly sweet line about the high-school-flame-turned-hubby who, “five children later” is “still my guy.”
It was like watching Gidget address the Reichstag.
Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins “Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants “U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.
Read Taibbi’s entire shit-knuckled, right-on piece at AlterNet.
When Jackboot John and Sarah’s flippant gotcha on the worsening Afghan/Pakistan crisis is coupled with now-global-domino collapse of the world’s financial markets, the couple appear like a dream — they just can’t be real.
And the shit goes on…
