McCain and Palin Attempt to Divert Your Attention From The Issues

I had planned to comment on Governor Palin’s interviews, debate and speeches from the past week, but tonight Keith Olbermann of Countdown on MSNBC, had a “Special Comment” which covers much of what I would write so I am just expressing my thoughts below.

Sarah Palin discussed Senator Barack Obama’s association with William Ayers as – …pals with a known terrorist who attacks America and the Pentagon and kills people. William Ayers was a radical in the sixties. He has never been prosecuted for any crime; he is a respected professor. Mr. Ayers has not been charged as a terrorist in the United States or elsewhere. I suggest that Ms. Palin stop calling people out of their names, her comments could be considered slanderous and/or defamation of character.

As law breakers go, Governor Palin, you have obstructed justice in an investigation into your own behavior as a Governor concerning abuse of power. You encouraged your subordinates to defy a court ordered subpoenas and your own husband has refused to acknowledge a subpoena issued to him to appear to testify under oath. Sarah Palin, Who Exactly is the LAW BREAKER HERE?

Let us not fall for the bull puckey America; don’t let the Republican Campaign Committee, Fox Cable News and Sean Hannity, or Rush Limbaugh DIVERT our attention from the real issues. America we are facing the biggest economic crisis of the century. Our lawmakers have just enslaved most of us for a major portion of our lives to an additional trillion dollar debt. America vetted Senator Barack Obama during the Primaries against Senator Clinton. We don’t really need a rehash of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, William Ayers or Rezko; most of us have already done our own homework on these issues.

Sarah Palin and John McCain this country needs a true and honest discussion about our economy and where you intend to take us should you become Vice President and President. Not the bull that you intend to divert our attention toward. If you truly want the positions, your auditions are not making the grade.


And now… Keith Olbermann’s “Special Comment”...

Between Randi, Keith, Rachel, and you the McCain, Palin ticket does not stand a chance. The second debate is to night and” Mavrickman” is already on the ropes. Hope he does not trip over the bar with his walker. All this talk from the campaigns about who did what and lie, lie, lie. I think Americans want answers to the real life problems they face daily. Not some word soup about who he knows or she said he said crap they have been spewing all over the cable news. We have some real issues to work through in this country and school yard games are not going to get the job done. Does anyone think Jefferson, Franklin, Adams or any of our founding fathers would be strutting around the nations capital like the cock of the walk at a time like this, if they had to deal with any crisis. I think not. When they breathed life into this wonderful country they did not throw mud at each other they rolled up their sleeves and got the job done.
