I NEED TO GET BACK TO THE MIND! (BEFORE I LOSE MINE)

I keep telling myself to stop getting sidetracked by politics and get back to the mindly matters of our times. However, our minds these days are heavily influenced by our political bodies! During troubled times we look to our leadership to bring us, like Moses, to the promised land. Too often all we get from our leaders are promises that never land!

So this morning I was reading a Time magazine article about Sarah P, a political operative that scares me. She is the Alaskan equivalent of a bull(actually a bear) in a china shop.

Her opening line at a speech,(actually a $549 a ticket gathering), "How's that hopey-changey stuff workin' out for ya?" Politically, it is pure, unadulterated genius. Realistically, it is a bit daunting and more than a bit terrifying. I believe she is posturing to have the huddled masses and assorted asses take her to the Republican ticket as a Presidential candidate and if the Dems don't get their act together, she has a shot of moving her snowmobile and rifle collection right into Pennsylvania Ave. I can hear her State of the Union speech already. As I have said before, if she wins I move to France, which is OK with me too.

What intrigued me about the article by Joe Klein, titled, "It's Her Party (February 22, 2010) was his line, "Because brilliance must be respected,especially when it involves marketing in an era when image almost always passes for substance." Think about that statement. I will return to it tomorrow.

Bye For Now,

Bill

  1. Very funny and an authentic addition to the sometimes absurdity of realistic optimism. S.P. scared me from day one, I truly felt that our country and some of our leaders were loosing it, it's not too much better. It's a shame she gets so much face time, a bad role model for women and even more pathetic that she is "heard" by lots of folks.
