Palin: Strictly Un-Buddhist...

... thoughts.  Is there not somewhere, still, at least one Republican leader willing to step forward in the attempt to spare us from this woman's voice for the next--big gulp!--two and a half years?  

Ever the masochist when it comes to politics, I listened to the full 18 minutes of her inane "announcement" speech yesterday.  The quacking of ducks and honking of geese in the background seemed like an entirely harmonious accompaniment to her chirpy bleat.  

The upside, of course, is that--should the media perform according to expectations--she will provide an ever-present, all-too-obvious reminder of the alternative to the cool, measured, commanding--and, yes, less than perfect--governing style of President Barack Obama.

I'm hoping that Fox TV will provide her with her own niche, safe in a box I will not need to open. ;-)

I'm sure they will, Twilight! I fear, however, that other networks will not insulate themselves from the toxin.

Does Palin have a committed passion to work for the well-being of others?; or, does she rely and focus, instead, on a race to attain her own fleeting desires in order to try to make herself happy?

Personally, I find it difficult to see her, as a diamond in the rough, trying to maintain the realization that all we each individually seem to want is just to love and be loved; for what we do and by whom we do it with and for.

John, I tend to think it's just vanity.

As I said, Roger. Just masochistic!

'Personally, I find it difficult to see her, as a diamond in the rough'----Clearly a demon in the rough.

I'm not actually capable of having Buddhist thoughts about her. What a weasel.
