The Dumbing Down of America

Sarah Palin’s Magical Mystery Tour – a bus trip for the purpose of yet more Palin propaganda – kicks off with The Abominable Snow Snooki joining the Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally at the Washington Mall.
At least some of the veterans, who annually hold the rally to draw attention to prisoners of war and those missing in action, are not pleased with Palin co-opting their event to boost her image as a supporter of America’s military. Others, it should be noted, are fine with anything that draws attention to the issues.

My problem is with Palin’s premise for the whole ridiculous non-carbon neutral photo-op:

“to educate and energize Americans about our nation’s founding principles.”

Given that Sarah Palin doesn’t know the difference between the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, wrongly believes that America was founded as a Christian nation, doesn’t understand the First Amendment, and thinks the Vice President is “in charge of the Senate”, any attempt made by this narcissistic imbecile to educate people can only hasten America’s slide to Idiocracy.
The idea that Sarah Palin has any ability to educate anyone about anything is laughable. The woman is dumber than a sack of rocks.

Some are speculating that this bus tour is in preparation for Palin’s entry into the GOP primary, others consider it just another bit of Palin propaganda designed to keep her grinning, vacant mug in front of the cameras.
I don’t think she’ll run. She WANTS to but she knows she’d be chewed up and spit out and her fragile ego couldn’t take it. She lacks the stamina and the intellectual chops to actually be a candidate. If it weren’t for John McCain’s craven, hasty and ill-considered decision to elevate her from almost total obscurity, she’d be nothing more than an Alaskan grandmother who once managed to con her way into the governorship. Now, having tasted the power of being wildly popular with her fan base of bible-clutching, mouth breathing ignoramuses, she will do anything to keep their adoration, and that includes teasing them right up to the very end with her, “I have the fire in my belly!” will-she-or-won’t-she bullshit.

  1. That’s exactly what it is, pre-pre-pre-Presidential campaign PR hype. All this for an election that doesn’t happen for another year and a half. Ridiculous waste of money and media space.

    Like everything with Fargo Barbie, it’s all just PR hype designed to garner the attention that fuels her. At some point, people with brains (if there are any left) have to cut off that completely unmerited attention before we have to start calling her “President Barbie”.
