Race to the White “Trash” House

Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

The new catch phrase being used by the McCain campaign is “Joe six-pack“. Sarah Palin is standing up for Joe Sixpack. This new catch phrase makes sense in one of two ways. She is either trying to appeal to the non-thinking, anti-intellectuals or she is going for the frat boys and girls of America. Either way this must be a ploy to get some of the less than intelligent voters to stand up for her despite or even because of her stupidity.

Let’s analyze this term…”Joe Six-Pack”. Could that be a euphemism for frat boy? Frat boy…hrm, why does that seem so familiar? Frat boy. OH! YES! George W. Bush is a glorified frat boy, albeit in the morning after period of an eight year binge, he can’t be bothered to lead this country at all, even in the wrong direction (perhaps he is too focused on his $805 billion parting gift). Joe Six-Pack…frat boy…George W. Bush. It makes sense now. Given the McCain campaign’s penchant for wordplay campaigning (aka the Straight Talk Express — shiver — is anyone else having Orwellian flashbacks to 1984?)…we can assume this new phrase means he supports the failed Bush and Rovian politics (again) but renamed them to confuse average Joe Sixpacks. I understand now.

Sarah Palin is ridiculous. She is frighteningly unprepared for the Vice Presidency or even for the Senate. This becomes glaringly more and more obvious as time (and McCain) allows her to speak in public. From foreign to domestic affairs, she lacks even the basic understanding. They should be embarrassed. McCain did himself NO favor by choosing her. Now the McCorporation ticket is headed straight to the White “Trash” House, fully equipped with someone even less intelligent than George W. (and we thought this wasn’t possible, silly us!), moose-hunting and “dontchaknows”! Yeee haw! If they become elected, we can start a bill to change the name of our country to the United Stupid of America, Land of the French Fries…the world’s beacon for Idiocracy.

Are we even remotely interested in how this country is led anymore? Or is it simply a matter of ensuring we do not think for ourselves while banishing our civil rights and liberties? Or is the support for Palin and McCorporation simply a case of latent racism? Please tell me Americans are not this stupid!
