Obama and Palin

Posted by kelliasworld on November 12, 2008

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday that she would be honored to help President-elect Barack Obama in his new administration, even if he did hang around with an “unrepentant domestic terrorist.” http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/11/12/palin/index.html?eref=rss_latest

O: Gov. Palin, this is Barack Obama…

P: Really? You’re not a radio station out to make fun of me again like those Canadians did?

O: Governor, I assure you, I am the President.

P: Well, what can I do for you, Mr. President?

O: I know we had our differences during the campaign, but I want to work with Republicans as well as Democrats in building a stronger America. I have a job that you are uniquely qualified to do. I hope you’ll consider it.

P: Well, If God wants me to go through that door, I’ll barge right through. What do you have in mind, Mr. President?

O: I know you’re busy with your family and with being Governor. But I am hoping you will take time to keep an eye on the Russians for us. In fact, since you can see Russia from your house, I hope some of your children will be interested in helping you. I want to provide more opportunities for youth to serve their country.

P: That’s a great idea, Mr. President. The family that spies together stays together. And we can see Canada from the other side of the house. Would you like us to watch that as well?

O: Governor, that’s a great idea! Why don’t you do that? And file a report by email once every 3 months. You know the State Department’s web site.

P: Uh, State Department? Yes, I’ll do that! I can even do it more frequently if you’d like.

O: Once a quarter will be fine, if I need more, I’ll let you know.

P: Thank you, Mr. President. It’s an honor to serve. God Bless Alask…I mean God Bless America.

O: Goodbye, Governor. God Bless America.

(Palin hangs up and turns to her husband). Todd, what’s the State Department?

Sen. McCain’s Concession Speech

Posted by kelliasworld on November 4, 2008

was very gracious. But the crowd booed a his concession and a couple of references to Obama’s future leadership and McCain’s own willingness to work with Obama, to a level I don’t recall in past concessions. He and Palin should have been that gracious during the campaign. They may have let an angry genie out of the bottle that may be very difficult to put back, no matter how much McCain may now want it. McCain said he looked forward to seeing Palin’s future service to Alaska, the party and the nation. I look forward to her disappearing from the national stage.
