Palin, Queen of Mediocrity

The bootstrap was once an American icon. Now, it’s a (laughable) punch line.

Whatever happened to the nation that our forefathers, our grandparents, or values once built? Weakness is more than a personal affliction today as many allow the reduced meritocracy to cave-in on itself.

So many people hoped and prayed for redemption but what they got was much more of the same. Now, today, a new dawn arises, however Palin is not the one who ushers in the next generation she is the one to kill it. We have become a nation emancipated from slavery, so why do we allow those in power to separate us from our profits?

Four decades ago, the late Sen. Roman Hruska of Nebraska defended an unqualified court nominee by saying, “There are a lot of mediocre judges and people out there. They are entitled to a little representation, aren’t they?’’ Hruska was mocked for his comments, but it turns out that he was just a little ahead of his time.

Lincoln, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, even Ronald Reagan, all united our country in times of duress and under the name of the great American experiment. Winston Churchill, after the battle of Midway, was quoted as saying the American race, "was the greatest race of all." However we face a time when this great democratic endeavor, this great American experiment, is infected with half-truths and misquotes, intended to strike fear in the hearts of the most loyal.

What about you?

Vote Obama.
