Sympathy For The Palin

Since watching HBO’s Game Changer I have sympathy for Sarah Palin. She was in way over her head – not really her fault.
The “old” GOP didn’t understand that today’s GOP could elect someone who really “doesn’t know anything.” So they assumed a Governor would at least read newspapers and not just right-wing blogs, watch FOX and listen to Rush Limbaugh. The new GOP just reads right-wing blogs, watches FOX and listens to Limbaugh.
A Palin, and now the problem of a government that is destroying the country, its infrastructure, its courts, all the things that businesses rely on, this is the GOP/corporate establishment’s fault. This is corporate money and careerist politician/lobbyists, just using “the base” and nurturing this culture, because they use the ignorance.
It’s also the corporate short-term thinking thing. Yeah, it was great to get tax cuts and neglect the infrastructure. Great to get people believing there’s no climate change. Great to pile up cash for yourself but let the country pile up debt.
And now it’s “later.” If you aren’t one of the very few who piled up enough cash to fly your jet off to your private island, you’re fucked along with the rest of us, in a country rules by Sarah Palins.
