[Tacky Politicians] Good god, the printer ink is barely dry on the presidential election votes and America's most notable cougar, er, jackal is already circling the corpse of the 2008 Republican party looking for work.
Sarah Palin--again--shows she has no sense of decorum, no political intelligence and no class. She is a consumate opportunist, and her rush to trash John McCain and the party that took a chance on her small-town Alaska ass will only come back to haunt her.
You saw plenty of this during the campaign. Palin had no sense of etiquette when stumping with McCain. She frequently referred to him as "my running mate." Huh? On which page of Emily Post's "Manners in Campaigning" did she find that reference? The woman was HIS running mate, for hell's sake. It may sound like a picky point, but seriously, it's symbolic of how impulsive, self-centered and plain dumb the woman is. And now that there are no campaign gatekeepers for Palin's tackiness, I predict the woman hangs herself for 2008, 2012 and 2016. The GOP may be looking to reinvent itself, but will likely draw the line at making a hillbilly its symbol of a whole new day.
