When John McCain tapped Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate in 2008, the American voters were outraged. The majority of people in the country, regardless of political party, were incredulous that someone so ignorant, inexperienced, and uneducated was selected to potentially be a heart-beat away from controlling the nuclear codes. No longer were we voting based on our view of the solution to the many problems facing the country, but based upon our duty as parents to ensure the safety and security of the next generation, both having been jeopardized by Palin.
Opposition to Sarah Palin is not about politics. It’s about competency. It’s about basic honesty and intelligence. When the potential President of the United States can’t pronounce the word “nuclear”, why would we trust her with the codes? When she can’t remember the name of the person she is debating, why would we think she could remember the people responsible for 9-11? When she doesn’t understand that Africa is a continent, not a country, how would we expect her to have any understanding about the countries that present a threat to the United States? If she doesn't know whether it is North Korea or South Korea that is our ally, why should she be charged with decisions concerning national security? If she thinks Paul Revere was trying to warn the British, why isn't everyone in America warning all voters about the risk of a Palin presidency?
As parents of the next generation we must insist that any potential President of the United States is “fit” and has the necessary “gravitas” to make logical decisions. We can’t afford for our President to make decisions based upon spite or a bad day. When we elect a President we are selecting a person we trust with the most critical decisions about our future and that of our children. Economic philosophy and stimulus spending become trivial concerns when another world war and nuclear devastation become real possibilities.
Our country is facing serious problems, and it will take all Americans working together to solve the problems. Electing political candidates who are the most intelligent, committed and dedicated public servants is our only hope. The problem with political jokes is that they get elected, and if Palin should ever be elected the joke would be on us.
