Great Moments In Dawning Regret: August 29, 2008

On that date in Dayton, Ohio, John McCain became suddenly, painfully aware of the downside of making expedient choices and listening to people who urge you to “think outside the box” when they really mean “pander to the crazies.”

Relive those last innocent hours before “Seward’s Folly” became “Seward’s Revenge” here.

Hahaha! It’s amusing now to recall how worried I was when McCain chose Palin (since I knew almost nothing about her). I had no idea how quickly she’d establish herself indelibly as a dunce of the highest order.

I didn’t notice at the time it was happening, but John McCain seems to alternate between awkward golf claps and looking at Palin like she’s a talking Pop Tart who just jumped out of the toaster.

Did you have to mention that this travesty happened here, in Dayton? *hangs head in abject shame*

Really, could we think about the better things that Dayton has produced? The electric self-starter, the cash register, the Wright Brothers? How about those Peace Accords? Huh?

sigh.

And to think a lot of us generally remember the worst thing to happen on August 29th as being Katrina.  Are the two related?  Why does God hate America?

...looking at Palin like she’s a talking Pop Tart who just jumped out of the toaster.

If that’s true, McCain must really be into Pop Tarts.

Huh, in the video still frame, is that Paul Ryan/Eddie Munster to her left, our right? Can’t be—too much stoopid in one place.

Hard to believe that it’s been only 3 years since Palin attached herself barnacle-like to the hull of our political consciousness.

It’s difficult to believe the 3 year mark because whenever she speaks, it feels like forever.

Well, we should add her several-year stint as “The Nanny.”

For the rest of this was known as Great Moments in Listening in Disbelief & Then LAUGHING.

LOL! & BARF!

And just think, only 11 short months later she quit on us.
Whodothunk? “Only dead fish go with the flow”.

How sweet. She had the deer in the headlights look
even back then.

HaHa! I remember thinking “Wow, she will be a tough opponent if she was politically savvy enough to stand locally against the Bridge to Nowhere.” The folksy twang of “thanks, but No thanks” rang and burned in my ears. I won’t soon forget it. Nor will I the day I saw the T-shirt.
