“Aha and Then…***POOF***”

Well what do you know, Kathleen Parker’s “Aha!” moment, where one realizes that the emperor has no clothes has dissipated?  Instead, Ms Parker’s concern about Sarah Palin’s ability to lead the country has been swept up in the euphoria of the performance of Sarah Palin.  Now she praises the Governor’s ability to ignore questions and instead “hammer” out talking points.  We deserve better from a person who would claim, “Don’t kill the messenger” the day before the debate.  Ms Parker observed that the replies she had gotten from supporters of Gov. Palin and the Republican Party accused her of being a traitor, wishing that she were dead.  In her newest column, she noted the following:





” The Katie Couric interview that was such a disaster for Palin — and that prompted me to conclude that she was out of her league and should leave the ticket — was awful precisely because Palin couldn’t explain anything. For whatever reason, she couldn’t even speak coherently.


The debate format clearly worked better for her because she could control her message and keep pounding well-rehearsed talking points. Does that mean she is ready to lead the free world should circumstances warrant?


That question remains. Right next to same question about Barack Obama. “




Wow!   What a turnaround, and now to top it off she is claiming that Barack Obama needs to prove that he is ready to lead the free world.  Ms Parker used Sarah Palin’s inability to answer questions as her basis for determining her belief that the governor was not suitable.   She freely admits that in the debate Gov. Palin avoided questions she most likely could not answer.   Does it not follow that Senator Obama has passed this test in the numerous interviews and the articulate well-founded answers that he has given to the specific questions that Gov. Sarah Palin is unprepared to answer?






  1. Thank you for putting this website address up on the last article you wrote for CNN.

    When I looked up your name, I see you all over the ‘net. You’ve got some of the most brilliant analogies being written.

    You really do a good job. I also like the fact you’re so varied in your topics.

  2. Michelle is a hard worker. And actually qualified to be a Vice President.

  3. Andy & Steadycat,

    Thank you for taking the time to read this post and leave a comment. Getting feedback is appreicated.

    **Steadycat**thank you for the endorsement. But who do you think would be selected to play me on SNL? lol


  4. Michelle – didn’t realize that you are a writer for CNN. This is a good website.

    The McCain campaign doesn’t own an original thought. Now the campaign slogan is “Change is coming”. You betcha. It’s coming to Washington DC with Obama and Biden.

  5. Cats r Flyfishn,

    I’m not a paid writer for CNN. Evidently, the individual that said he got my wordpress address from there read one of a few of my pieces they published. In the past I’ve done a few short political op/ed pieces for them and used wordpress as a “contact”.

    I’m in total agreement with you saying the CHANGE that’s coming to Washington will be Obama/Biden!!

    Kiindest Regards,


  6. Thanks for the comment I checked your page out,and it is great Mostly I enjoyed this particular article.but that actually looks more like us the american people.

  7. What a zinger. Your post are always relevant, on topic and to the point. Many of the comments coming to you are from people asking if you’re an attorney or politician. If you’re not, you’ve missed your calling.

    You rally the troops better than the current administration.

    Mark and Jen
