Little to Offer

Neighbor Mary sent me this blog address:
It's a collection of entries by women venting about The Twit. Even for me, some of the entries seem a little vitriolic, but on the other hand some of them are right on the mark. My favorite thought or idea is the following one, comparing running for election with going for a job interview, and pointing out the Twit's total lack of ideas on major issues:

Sarah Palin's smear tactics do not represent me because I am a thinking woman. When I present myself for a job or for office, I present why I am the best person for the job. I explain why you need me. It is a waste of my time and yours for me to go on about why the other guy is bad—why the other guy is bad has no bearing on how good I am. It is completely irrelevant.

What Mrs Palin's mudslinging strategy does is show us that because she has so little to offer, she has to resort to the lowest tactics of all to win the race. She can't tell us why she is fit, because she's not fit. She can't tell us about her excellent ideas for the economy, immigration, crime, world peace, etc, because she has none. Her only option to win this race is to kneecap the other guy. Nancy U. age 44
