Political Quotes May 25, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Nature, Sustainable Living.

Starting with its founding fathers, politicians in America have been linked to famous (and infamous) utterances:

* I cannot tell a lie.
* Give me liberty, or give me death.
* Four score and seven years ago . . .
* I have a dream . . .
* Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!
* Read my lips, no new taxes.

So, how will we remember Sarah Palin in the wake of the off-shore drilling disaster in the Gulf of Mexico?

By her positively gleeful utterance preceding that disaster:   

Drill, baby, drill!

The next time she utters those three words, let’s hope she’s sitting comfortably in her dentist’s office about to undergo a root canal.

I do associate Palin with “Drill baby drill,” but I also associate her with “lipstick on a pig.”

That’s a good one ~ but she didn’t say it.

She and McCain just squealed alot when Obama said it. : )

She really is a dreadful woman.

Aah, even in South Africa, she has her “dis-admirers.”

I am so GLAD that she and McCain didn’t end up in the White House. Having her one step away from the Presidency is a scary thought.

In South Africa we have a blogger positively rabid with anti-Palin sentiment, you should read her:

The more I see the devastation occuring in the Gulf, the more I want to wipe that gleeful smirk off her fat face. : )

Ah, Palin. What a strange woman she is. 🙂
Although I must credit her with giving me so much blogging material.

At Cindy’s suggestion, I checked out a few of your posts.

For your sake (and mine!), I hope she does not run for election in 2012 . . . that way you can put your keen political insight to better use than poking Palin! : )
