Oh Maverick

Oh dear god oh dear god oh dear god wasn't it all a dream?

Almost a year ago today this great country dodged a huge bullet by the name of Sarah Palin. Never should she have been picked but who knows- if she hadn't maybe McCain would have won. Which would have been preferable than having Palin anywhere near the White House. But remember that concession speech she thought she could give but was told no directly by John McCain because VP candidates don't give concession speeches? What about a victory speech? Oh, there was one too and they are both available here. If you're like me, and I know I am, you'll be counting your blessings as you read both speeches. Some of my favorite parts from the "victory" speech are:

"Had it gone the other way tonight, we would not have returned in sorrow to the great State of Alaska. We would have carried with us memories that are forever, and joyful experiences that do not depend on victory... This is a moment when principles and political independence matter a lot more than just the party line."

Who could forget the look on Sarah's teary face the night of the speech? She really thought she was going to win.

what is truly frightening about the victory speech is that it is delivered as if SHE won the presidential election. egomaniac, lunatic.
