I guess I should have known a certain Governor from way up north would go and say something stupid during my vaca from my blog!
Sooooo, Sarah Palin thinks the media is going easy on Caroline Kennedy because of her social class.I think CLASS is the operative word here.
SHE HAS IT WINKEY AND YOU DON'T!!!!!!
Holy shit. Please someone tell me she isn’t even going to try to compare herself to Caroline Kennedy.
Her exact words:
“It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.”
OK people, if she wants to compare, lets start comparing.
Kennedy: BA Harvard (took her only four years, imagine that?), Columbia Law School (top ten in class)
Palin: Hawaii Pacific, North Idaho Community College, University of Idaho, Matanuska-Susitina Community College, Back to University of Idaho. Whew, Did I miss one? Finally graduating with a degree in journalism. (No one will release her class rank, wonder why?).
Looking at the two, I can see where one draws parallels. I was just telling someone the other day "Ya know, I wish I had a penny for every time I read the business section and see another graduate from North Idaho Community College being named CEO of some Fortune 500 Company!"
OK. Next up, experience.
Kennedy: Attorney, writer, editor, board member on a number of non-profit boards. Director of the Office of Strategic Partnership for the NYC Dept of Education, where she helped raised 65 million for NYC Public Schools. She is also an advisor to the Harvard Institute of Politics,
and she co-authored two books on Civil Liberties.
I could go on, but I wouldn’t want to embarrass Winkey any further.
Palin: Reporter in Alaska, helped with her husbands commercial fishing company. She then ran for Wasilla City Council against a telephone operator. She won with 530 votes.
Mayor of Wasilla for three terms. Population 6,300.
My personal favorite, she was appointed to chair an ethics commission at the same time she served as one of three directors of "Ted Stevens Excellence in Public Service, HA.
Is anyone seeing the similarities?
Then she became Governor of Alaska. Population 730,000.
OK, OK, I think we all get the point. So I am just going to close with one thing. When Caroline Kennedy was Director of the Office of Strategic Planning for New York City Public Schools, they had 1.1 Million students.
What’s the population of Alaska?????
I am not even going to get into the part where she says Tina Fey and Katie Couric have been exploiting her to further their careers. Yeah, they really needed her to become successful. They were such losers!
Told you I would come back with a vengeance and its’ only been a few days!
Again, I'm writing this on the fly. Sorry for the grammar.
