Whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa. Hang on. Palin? Last I checked, Palin was running for VICE president. And last I checked, the VICE president wasn't the person who ran the country. Yes, yes, that whole "heartbeat away" thing. I get it. Not likely.
So, I don't know. Maybe it's me but it just seems a little desperate.
I'm also a little put off by the smart-ass ads Obama is endorsing. Frankly, I don't want a smart-ass in the Oval Office. The truth? For a minute there, I was thisclose to becoming a believer. Obama is smart, engaging, charming, and certainly talks a good talk about hope and change. Plus, like most everyone else, I am more or less done with W and McCain just seemed too wacky an option.
But now that the pressure is on -- courtesy of Palin? -- which, again, I think is odd -- he's losing me. Seems a little too full of himself. Arrogant, I guess. That fist bump never bothered me before, but now it strikes me as... I don't know. Cocky?
Oh, and by the by: I don't believe for a minute that the pig/lipstick comment was "misconstrued."
Please. Spare me.
