Last night, John Kerry delivered an address best summed up as "you know you're a flip-flopper when John Kerry calls you a flip-flopper."
Zingers included "It isn't fair to say Mitt Romney doesn't have a position on Afghanistan; he has every position," and "Talk about being for it before you were against it." No one would have been surprised had Kerry accused Romney of being a French windsurfer. And then there was this line, winning the prize for best Rocky reference at any political convention…
Folks, Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska. Mitt Romney talks like he's only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.
To which Sarah Palin responded on the Neil Cavuto show, communicating surprise that not everyone knew her level of obliviousness about the world around them…
I think he diminished himself by even mentioning my name. How does he even know my name?
I mean aren't these guys supposed to be these big wig elites who don't waste their time on the little people like me — me representing the average American [Ed. note: Average? I was told there would be no math when Palin speaks!] who, yeah I did say in Alaska you can see Russia from our land base and I was making the point that we are strategically located on the globe and when it comes to transportation corridors and resources that are shared and fought over [in] Alaska and I as the governor had known what I was doing in dealing with some international issues that had to do with our resources that could help secure the nation. So it's funny that he would take a little pot shot like that. It's funny that he even knows my name.
Forget the mediocre jobs report. When even Sarah Palin agrees that we're all diminished by the mention of Sarah Palin, how does one argue that we're not better off than four years ago?
