Enough Palin, Let's Focus

The media and the political blogs seem to be "all Palin, all the time" lately. Enough already. She's a lying corrupt corporate shill? Of course she is. She's a republican.
Let us get back to what matters: we need to defeat St. Sleazy McCain and the rest of the republican greedheads if we are to have any hope of saving America's (and the rest of the world's) future. It really is that simple. Nearly eight years of shrub have shown the damage republicans can do to peoples lives. We can't afford four more.
Obama isn't the messiah or the savior, but he has common sense and common decency. That's a big improvement on what we're getting now. I wasn't a big fan of Bill Clinton either, but at least he wasn't ruining the country, the planet, or peoples lives for the profit of a few corporations. When the choice is between 'mediocre' and 'absolute evil', 'mediocre' starts looking pretty good.
The Palin trivia may be fun, but it's distracting from the real fight. She is only a symptom of the disease that is the current republican party. We need to restore the health of America.

Bravo bravo bravo!

I could not agree more.

It is hard to not post about her, but you are so right.

I've been trying to do this, but lamely.

Thanks for being my inspiration to focus and be clear.

I agree, the focus has to change. The Palin frenzy is out of control. The scary thing is how many people are saying they like her and are switching to McCain because of her. You'd think they never even cared about the issues. Are half the American people just idiots, or what?

I still find it hard to believe that there are Hillary supporters who are going to vote for Palin just because she is a woman.

So well put. I love it that Obama is pushing back on some of this nonsense and attempting to steer the conversation back to what matters to the people.
