Palin Ready to Run Against “Hopey, Changey” Policies With Combination of Oil and God

Like many bloggers, I find Palin irresistible to watch like a primate without an opposable thumb: a reverse evolutionary wonder that is able to function despite the obvious advantages of other competing mammals. The Tea Party convention (covered adoringly by Fox) was no disappointment with Palin proclaiming that she is prepared to run against Obama and his “hopey, changey” policies. When asked about her priorities for the nation, she quickly rattled off three priorities, including oil/gas exploration and an Administration that openly seeks “divine intervention” so that we can prosper again.

The godly answer comes around 3:45 on the video. What is so striking is how Palin attributes the current crisis to the failure to publicly call for divine intervention.

Palin also introduced the country to the poor person’s teleprompter with clearly visible notes written on the inside of her hand, here.

The crowd clearly relished every line, including such greetings as “I am so proud to be an American. Thank you so much for being here tonight. Do you love your freedom?” The correct answer to yes.

Continuing her effort to fully morph into Tina Faye’s stereotype from Saturday Night Live, Palin asked “This was all part of that hope and change and transparency. Now, a year later, I gotta ask the supporters of all that, ‘How’s that hopey, changey stuff working out for ya?'”

Palin appears to be combining a potent mix of monotheistic faith and monosyllabic words to rally her base. In this faith-based fantasy world, simply calling for divine intervention is likely enough to push the Dow back above 10,000 and restart the housing market. She fails to explain how the crash occurred under Bush who made faith-based politics what it is today. But none of that matters to this crowd, which appears desperate to hear a leader say that it is merely a matter of drilling and praying to return to “the good days.”

    I personally think corporations rely to heavily upon government. In my mind it is nothing more than fascism. If the executives of a corporation engage in criminal activities then they should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    As far a corporations concentrating wealth, I don’t think that is necessarily true. Granted there are wealthy men and women in the world but they are wealthy (assuming they did not inherit wealth) because they created wealth for others as well. Bill Gates has made many people very wealthy. Henry Ford and John D. Rockefeller did the same, as did Cornelius Vanderbilt and all of the other “Robber Barons” and current men and women who take risk to bring products and services to market.

    If some people are not allowed to concentrate wealth and capital then the rest of us are S.O.L. I think the former Soviet Union is a good example, there was no concentration of wealth in the private sector.

    What communists and socialists fail to realize is that without reward people will not take necessary risks. Risk without reward is depending on some religious like sacrifice on the part of men and women of ability to bring goods and services to market. Humans are not puppy dogs who want to please their masters, and this is what communists and socialists fail to realize. Or they do realize it and so they must use force to change peoples behaviour.
