She Called Us!

We had a phone call today from Sarah Palin. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to pick it up. But she left a very nice voicemail message reminding us that she is going to be at the historic Golden Lamb in Lebanon, OH on Tuesday morning. I'm sure the kman will be there.

I bet if I had talked to her directly, she would have mentioned her views on banning books from the library and also her stance on teaching creationism in the classroom. I really want to ask her what deity and what view of creation she would want in the textbooks. I can only assume she is a Pastafarian and a member of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. RAmen!

Wouldn't we all love to ask her those questions? Oh but wait, the McCain people wont let her talk to anyone. She's too busy getting quick lessons on what her new job description is going to be and being quized on foreign affairs.

Church of the flying spaghetti monster....I love it!

We got the call today too. I would go if I could get close enough to actually see her or talk to her. I do think she is extremely hot! That might be enough to make me vote for her and McCain. LOL

Seriously I am torn. I like both her and McCain, but do not believe in many of there right winged political / religious views. But how much does that really matter. When it comes to all that kind of stuff, does the president really have that much power?

Hear my earlier comment stirred up some water cooler chat at your office. Hope they were not making too much fun of me!

kman-- You don't agree with many of their right wing/political views and you wonder how much it matters. I have three words for you: Supreme Court Justice. Also. I didn't vote for Bush. But when he was elected I consoled myself with the the thought-- 'I don't agree with many of his views, but how much damage can a well-meaning president do?' Well, now we know. Now my view is don't vote for a political party. Take a long-term view and vote for our country/planet. Banning books in this day and age!! As you can see the thought of Palin in Washington has made me irrational.

I have to admit, the book banning thing really bothered me. And the church rally speech talking about the war in Iraq being part of Gods plan bothers me even more. I admit I got caught up in the idea of a more regular person being in the White House, just wish she wasn't such a religious fanatic.

For awhile I thought Obama was a breath of fresh air, but I now just think he is a puppet of the democratic party, who is very charismatic and can say the right things at the right time.

So I am back to most likely basing my vote on who I agree with more on the economics front, and I haven't even started to research that yet.

Overall I still do not think it really matters much, because neither side can fix the mess the country is in. I just plan on having my daughter start learning Chinese as soon as she can start to speak! They are probably going to be in charge by the time she is an adult anyway.

Just wanted to say "Thanks, Earl" for introducing me to the teachings of Pastafarianism, which in turn has led me to the dogma of the Invisible Pink Unicorn, and also to "Russell's Teapot". It gives me hope that there ARE STILL people out there willing to question and to think and to stand up to the powers that be! Maybe I'm not the only one who watches the movie "Dogma" every "Good Friday"!

Wow this turned into quite the popular post. I meant to include the link to my last post on Sarah Palin on my blog. Outlining some of the stuff I found will reading and my responses to some of the statements or beliefs I found.

In my book, Joe Biden is a hottie! I'm all over that Obama/Biden ticket...I just hope one or both of them will take off their shirt to give a speech.

Kman said...

LOL, Dianne I always count on your to put like into perspective.

Earl said...

Wow! This post has to be one of mine with the most comments ever. I'm glad that all the regular readers are politically savvy and take the time to comment.

By the way, do I smell money burning around here? :^) I couldn't resist.
