Says I, “ Don’t have them.”
He says, “Can’t do anything without them.”
There are politicians I have felt sorry for:
The first I remember was Jimmy Carter. I wished at every news conference he would say, “Folks, my brother Billy is not the President, I don’t care if he has his own beer, I don’t even care if he makes it, that is his problem, I am president, not Billy!”
I felt sorry for Mr. Muskie (even though I did not care for him as a politician) but the press had been unmerciful. He cried at a news conference and said,”leave my wife alone”. He left the race, broken hearted.
One of the greatest politicians and business men was George Romney. He made the statement “I was brain-washed.” Referring to the senior military feeding him canned info, not real. The press hounded him out of the race for that statement.
Now, I am feeling a little sorry for a Republican. I don’t know the whole reason behind Palin’s resignation; we might in a week or so. It might be just what she said. She too is not my favorite politician, but I have felt sorry for her. A lot of ethics charges, of which she was cleared. She has defended some petty cheap shots. Making fun of her daughter (s) and then a cheap shot at the child Chip, shows little to no tact. If you have ever had children, you know there is just so much you can do as a parent.
Maybe the term, “if you can’t take the heat, stay out of the kitchen” applies. But maybe the kitchen was on fire, who knows? Now the folks, who said she should quit politics and raise her family, can rest easy. I never thought that argument had much validity since most mom’s work now. But some like to throw that around. I am sure she won’t be a stay at home mom for long. My girl worked after the boys were in school herself, and was a good mother. Most of the mothers on the net, work.
I would really love to see a reporter flattened. But then the other reporters would show it over and over again and the man would look like a wild man. So they have to say, “No comment” and try to walk away.
Enough of this rambling, thanks for coming by
