We all thought that Shrub was the stupidest person to ever ascend to the Oval Office but it now appears that it is possible – likely even – that some time in the next four years we will be victim to someone even dumber than the current presiding potted plant actually inheriting the position of Commander in Chief.
Now, I’m not writing to discuss the reasons why this might happen – save to say that if the democrats are so stupid that they don’t get their shit together and put an end to the republican voter fraud this time around then they deserve to lose this election. No, I just want to prep you for what we ought to prepare for under a Palin Presidency.
Nations with morons as heads of state have long been the butt of jokes based upon the idiocy of their leaders so with a leader so clueless that she doesn’t even have a clue that she’s clueless (so clueless it turns out that McCain staffers have revealed that she didn’t know that Africa was a continent!) we should expect no less from our friends abroad.
With that in mind I thought I’d give you just one example of the sort of humor that we should be prepared to “enjoy”.
Here’s a funny:
The leaders of China, Russia and the US are discussing their space programs. The Chinese leader says “in two years we will put a man on the moon.” Russia’s leader, Putin, ups the ante by saying “Really? In five years Mother Russia will put a man on Mars.” President Palin, not wanting to be outdone by either man says “Well, Gosh Darn it Boys, that’s real impressive, but’chya know what we’re gonna do? The Good ‘Ol USA is gonna put a team of men and women on the sun!”
The Russian and Chinese leaders are stunned. Putin looks at President Palin and says “But certainly you know this is impossible. It would be a suicide mission!”
Palin derisively rolls her eyes, winks at the audience and says “Well Mr. Smarty Pants, that shows what you know. We’re going to land at night!”*
Oh the horror! Somebody wake me please and tell me this is all a bad dream. With so many smart people in this country is this lineup really the best we could possibly do? Sad, sad, sad…
*Yes, this is my own original humor.
