My Political Opinion
There is a book out now setting record sales and it is entitled, “America By Heart” and the author is Sarah Palin, former Republican candidate for the office of Vice President of The United States. It appears that Mrs. Palin’s book has reportedly exceeded the 500,000 mark and continues to sell very well.
By the way – – in case anybody does not recall – – Mrs. Palin ran along with Senator John McCain (R-Az) and both lost their elections to Barack Obama. ( Just thought I would mention that in case anybody might have forgotten. I believe a whole helluva lot of Righties have probably forgotten it or wish they could forget it. I know there seems to be an awfully lot of them in denial about it – – wishing it had never happened – – wishing it would just magically go away somehow – – maybe if they can sue the president or impeach him . . . oh well, that’s another story isn’t it?
Anyway Mrs. Palin has now written “America By Heart” and it is doing most excellently on the charts and – – as I might have expected – – some of the waxed whiskers and mouldy mustaches on the intransigent obstructionist and idiotologically-motivated radical right have taken the opportunity to try to sell the story that Mrs. Palin’s book is outselling another book . . . one written by Hillary Clinton ( Potential candidate for President in 2016 according to all reports ) by as much as 5 to 1 or even more. – – -SEE HERE.
Who knows? It might be true!
The Palin book might well be outselling the Clinton offering by 500,000 copies sold for Palin and less than 100,000 copies sold for Clinton.
It proves nothing to me!
Well let me retract that a little bit – – it does prove “something” to me perhaps:
What I think is happening ( although I have no way of knowing for sure ) is that an enormous number of low-information Righties . . . is there any other kind? . . . are possibly spending a large portion of their monthly welfare checks to purchase multiple copies of the Palin book . . . not necessarily to read, mind you . . . but maybe to support the cause.
I mean “Politics” is a most difficult subject to begin with and I doubt that half the Radical Righties I know or am familiar with . . . the ones who adjust the volume of their life by twisting their baseball caps into different orientations to the compass . . . would even begin to comprehend anything complex – – especially something as complex as politics.
I have seen some of these Yahoos who can’t read anything at all except the numbers on the checks they receive.
I have known some of them who can tell you . . . right down to the penny . . . whether or not their checks are correct . . . but ask them to read a street sign or spell anything with more than 6 letters in it and they are dumbfounded and lost to the point where all they can do is either swear profane words or stare blankly at you or into the distance .. . . . [ Or call you some dumbassed name such as "Liberal Pile of Ass."].
I have quite a few rightwads who delight in calling me the most deliciously deviant names – – and a lot of those detractors of mine have the audacity to tell people they embrace the basic principles of Christianity!
Oh yeah! It sometimes seems to me like Radical Right Wing Christians of every description have found a passage in their Bibles that reads, “And thou, when thou has found a Liberal, thou shalt upbraid that Liberal with all diligence and purpose of mind and thou shalt say unto him ( or her) “Thou art an ignorant Liberal pile of ass!”
There ain’t no such verse in The Bible but to hear some of the right asses talk you would think there was one!
It’s kind of like The Bible, I guess – – – I think a lot of religious righties purchase big, expensive copies of the Bible . . . printed on the finest India Paper and bound in the rarest of Oxhide covers . . . so they can “Be Seen” by their contemporaries as very astute students of Holy Scripture . . . ( I am not talking about everyone here, folks but I have been associated with the hysterical side of protestant religion ( pew jumping screamers, wailers, ,moaners and criers ) . . . the kind of folks who sometimes make such claims as “Gawd told me to run for office” . . . (Just before they got their rear ends kicked in the election and their opponents won the offices they wanted) . . . you know what I am talking about here I am sure.
So there are any number of reasons one book on the market might outsell another but in some cases . . . make that most cases . . . I do not think it is because there are countless hordes of intellectual Righties scrambling to advance their political acumen – – I think a lot of it might have to do with supporting a well-known, very attractive, very intelligent and charismatic author and a cause in which they believe whole heartedly . . . which, of course, is their right as Americans. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
In the words of a famous state governor and former candidate for president that I recall, “OOps!” . . . I stepped in it a little with that last sentence I wrote up there!
I did not really mean to imply there is actually any such thing as “Hordes of Intellectual Righties.” That is the worst possible combination of words I could have chosen because I do not think that comes anywhere near close to possibility . . . much less reality.
Let me re-write that idea: “Countless Hordes of Right Wing Hopefuls.”
There! That’s better!
Yes, it is a very good book . . . I am told . . . and who am I to dispute the word of literary experts?
And yes, I do hope that Mrs. Palin enjoys every success with her new writing venture and I say that for a couple of reasons:
Reason Number One: Every American deserves a chance and has the right to aspire to lofty goals.
Reason Number Two: The more Conservatives decide to run for president, the greater the chances of Liberals and Democrats to win again in 2016.
