As I look over the state of our nation today, with 15 million still unemployed, our infrastructure crumbling, the level of quality for our pundits and politicians at its lowest point ever, I ask myself the following questions:
CARLY FIORINA? California, are you serious? You're toying with the idea of electing her Senator? The woman Michael Malone, columnist for the Wall Street Journal and abcnews.com, called "the worst CEO in [Silicon] Valley history"? Whom Jeffrey Schoenfeld of the Yale School of Management said "...sliced shareholder wealth in half and and had a reign of terror that was infamous for its scapegoating, finger-pointing culture" during her disastrous tenure as Hewlett Packard's CEO? The woman who laid off 20,000 workers there but who unhesitatingly took a $21 million golden parachute when her board finally asked her to leave? California teabaggers and Republicans, you'll run ANYBODY for office, huh? By the way, Carly, YOUR hair doesn't look that good or today, either!
GLENN BECK? The guy who lost scores of sponsors after his comments about the President being a racist who hates white people? The vain little guy with the 1955 image who concocts all kinds of crazy conspiracy theories and tries to sucker unsuspecting fools into buying overpriced gold coins from one of his few remaining sponsors? THIS guy is STILL on Fox "News" and still has viewers?
KEN BUCK for Senate? Say it ain't so, Colorado! You're thinking of electing a guy who called Social Security "horrible, bad policy", and who further questioned its constitutionality? A guy who, according to the Colorado Statesman “emphasized his conservative values, expressing his opposition to the principle of separating church and state” at a forum at Colorado Christian University? What about the constitutionality of THAT, Buck?
MEG WITMAN? For GOVERNOR, California? The former CEO of eBay who knowingly lied about employing an illegal immigrant housekeeper for 9 years, denied that she had, and then was proven to be a liar on televiosion with a document signed by her husband that the housekeeper's attorney dug up and produced? The candidate who cut this servant loose and told her that if anyone ever asked about her having worked for her, she would deny ever knowing her? Man, you California teabaggers and Republicans WILL take ANYBODY, won't you? I'm hoping California VOTERS will be a bit more selective, though...
MICHELE BACHMANN? REALLY, Minnesota 6th District voters? You're going to re-elect this motormouth who is constantly making insane statements and accusations? The woman who has advocated getting rid of the minimum wage? Who has urged constituents to not fill out their U.S. Census forms? Who has said she wants voters "armed and dangerous" to descend on the nation's capitol? THIS eccentric lunatic?
SARAH PALIN? THIS woman STILL has a sizable following, even though she quit her responsibilities as Alaska's Governor in mid-term so that she could make more money for herself on book tours and in speaking apperances? THIS woman, who knows next to nothing about history, geography, law, and world events but who nonetheless thinks she's qualified to be President? WHAT???
CHRISTINE O'DONNELL? Delaware, you CAN'T be serious, can you? You're contemplating electing to the U.S. Senate this bimbo with no work experience, who can't control her money, uses campaign donations for personal expenses, and who has repeatedly and deliberately misrepresented her education level? This person who believes science is creating rats with human brains? Have you lost ALL your standards, Delaware?
RUSH LIMBAUGH? ARE YOU kidding me? This liar who hates the President, minorities, immigrants, anybody not just like him (everybody, I guess) --- this guy is still on the air? This buffoon, who makes insane statements like the President is going to force all males to be circumsized, and that he is going to outlaw fishing? THIS blabbering bag of hot air still has listeners who follow him and believe what he says is true?
WHAT IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON IN THIS COUNTRY?
HAVE WE COMPLETELY LOST OUR MINDS???
