The Pot Calling The Kettle... Well, You Know

Lately you've been hearing a lot about the 2010 mid-term Congressional elections, but just as soon as the curtains on those voting booths are closed in November, then the 2012 Presidential race will seriously heat up. And some of the Presidential hopefuls are not waiting for 2012 to put it out there. Someone in Mitt Romney's camp took a swipe at Sarah Palin when he said to Time Magazine, referring to Palin, "She's not a serious human being. If she's standing up there in a debate and the answers are more than 15 seconds long, she's in trouble." OUCH!
That may be true; George Bush was more articulate even in his worst moments than Sarah Palin ever hoped to be, but coming from someone like Mitt Romney, the insult doesn't carry a lot of weight. In other words, Palin and Romney are both dim-witted bimbos, but at least when Palin throws some crazy, half-baked notion out there, you get the sense that she actually believes it, whereas Romney has all the sincerity and conviction of a department store mannequin. The guy will say anything that he thinks his supporters want to hear. And we do mean anything. If the Republicans are pinning their 2012 Presidential hopes on those two, then Michelle Obama can start measuring the West Wing for more drapes, because the Obamas are going to be in the White House for a long, long time.
