Sarah Palin scares me to death- shouldn't be a good role-model for anyone !

Reader comment on item: Sarah Palin Endorses 'Bomb Iran'

Submitted by Mike Dukanovic (United States), Feb 9, 2010 at 00:08

Sarah Palin and her palm full of crib notes is not a leader. She does nothing more than recite extreme right wing talking points and propaganda like a trained parrot.

Elected officials should be smart. Not just smart - crazy smart...painfully and unequivocally brilliant. The intelligence of average folk should pale in comparison. The people making substantive policy decisions must understand the scope of those decisions on a level that is almost unimaginable. They must be the most knowledgeable and studious individuals our society has to offer. Serving this nation demands unrivaled acumen and a total dedication to our population's general welfare - as the Constitution requires.

I'm not okay with a "Joe Six Pack" or "Every Mom" sitting in the Oval Office. I'm not cool with "John Q. Teabagger" making policy decisions dressed more like Long John Silver than a Son of Liberty, screaming about Constitutional rights while toting around a sign bearing a misspelling of "Constitution". If you can't even spell Constitution, you haven't read it in its entirety and can't understand its magnitude and intent. Sarah Palin certainly doesn't. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence understands what is at stake and that imbeciles do not good leaders make.

As I wrote in my article, above, I am "mystified by the fervid hostility" Palin provokes. This is one of innumeable examples.
