Governor Sarah Palin was in my home state yesterday, and she even graced my alma mater.
Speaking at The Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University she said, I assume between winks and "Aw, shuckses"*:
"We will balance the federal budget within our first term."
Really? Not unless you plan on withdrawing U.S. troops from Iraq on DAY ONE of that term-- and then as those troops return home have them stop at every house they see to look for shit they can bring back here and pawn.
"We're going to help our students afford college."
Really? Unless of course they are Iraq War vets who want to go to college on a new GI Bill, which McCain voted against.
"We'll clean up the corruption on Wall Street."
Really? You'll notice that the Treasury department has started doling-out some of the $700 billion in bailout money McCain voted for. Just how much is going to which companies (Price Waterhouse, Ernst & Young, etc.) has been REDACTED from documents released to the public.
"Your government should do more for you."
I'm sorry lady, what party do you belong to again?
"So Pennsylvania, will you hire us? Will you send us to Washington?"
Make me proud, Keystoners! Show these clowns that REAL America doesn't want them any more than those of us living in FAKE America.
*Have you noticed that Sarah Palin sounds like an out-state Minnesotan who's been hit in the head repeatedly with a brick? Would someone please give this woman a daytime talk show and be done with it!
