The lipstick just doesn't help Palin

The shutters are coming off the windows and Minnesotans are checking for wind damage. I enjoyed watching the Republican National Circus as they showed their true colors and hatred for working Americans. Send in the clowns: Thompson, Giuliani, Romney to rant against the evils of the Washington establishment. Thompson runs a big money K Street lobbying firm for companies that greedily crave your money. Giuliani runs a security consulting company that works for Middle Eastern Countries that financed the 9/11 attacks. Romney made his millions by destroying a company and laid off hundreds by shipping American jobs off to India. Republicans are desperate to re-write history. A brief re-cap: Deregulation, housing crisis, banks crashing, inflation, Enron Scandal, Ken Lay, Jack Abramhoff, Karl Rove, Bin Laden, Bush & Cheney, Iraq War for oil, billions of dollars in no-bid contracts to Cheney's & Bush's families and buddies. Cheap lip service on ending corporate corruption. Exxon CEO multi-millions payouts, increased unemployment, no action on securing the borders or the illegal immigrant situation. Lead in our kids' toys and disease in our food. Billions of dollars loaned from Communist China and the tax burden shifted to the struggling lower and middle classes, while the jet-setting class move their money to Bermuda.

Enter the new Comic Clown: Palin. A sportscaster turned spotlight-seeking political opportunist. Governor for only two years, she is now under investigation in Alaska for several scandals. Prior to that as mayor of Wasilla, she left the city several millions of dollars in debt. But they have a new hockey rink. Sarcastic and wry, she knows how to deliver a punch line: "The difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull? Lipstick." Reminds me of another saying: "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig."
