A Billion Monkeys

They say that if you put a billion monkeys in front of a billion computers for a billion years, one of them will write a Shakespearean play. Or throw feces at each other. Or vote Republican.

So, searching the web for the answer to the question: “What’s the difference between Sarah Palin and Dick Cheney?” I found at least a billion sites that gave the same answer: Lipstick. LOL. Or at least SUYB (snicker under your breath).

So, now that Governor Palin has officially been anointed as Republican VP candidate Palin, it’s time to figure out the actual differences between Palin and Cheney.

First off, while there are some slight similarities. For example, they both wear glasses. Both have received major dollars from oil companies. But that is where the similarity ends.

First of all, Palin was vetted more by ABC's Charlie Gibson, than by McCain. Cheney was vetted, well,…by Cheney.

When hunting, Palin shoots caribou and moose. When hunting, Cheney shoots friends and campaign contributors.

Palin was named “Miss Congeniality” in the Miss Alaska contest. In movie terms, that makes her Mary Poppins. Cheney is more like Darth Vader.

Palin does not know what the VP does everyday.
Cheney, last year, said that the Vice President was not part of the Executive Branch.

As governor, Palin has kept Alaska safe from attacks from Canada and Russia. Cheney, on the other hand, initiated a pre-emptive attack on Iraq.

Under Miss Alaska pageant rules, if the 1984 Miss Alaska (Maryline Blackburn) cannot perform her duties for any reason, Palin must take her place. Under the 25th Amendment, if the president cannot perform his duties for any reason, I think Bush actually takes Cheney’s place.

And finally, in her interview with ABC’s Gibson, Palin did not seem to know what the Bush Doctrine is. And, of course, it was Cheney who developed the Bush Doctrine.

So it goes.

Hmmm compare the Charlie Gibson interview with the recent George Stephanopoulos with Obama.

Obama has yet to be vetted by anyone... even old tingly legs at MSNBC.

I think Joe Biden said it best here:

Yes. He was vetted by the American people in a grueling primary election process.

Vetted in a grueling primary? Hahaha... it may have been grueling for Hillary but NOT Obama.

Obama's supporter cannot name even one thing he has done. On his website at it doesn't say anything EXCEPT he helped pass a law with Tom Coburn... yet it fails to name the law. I wonder why?

Well I will name it. It is the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006. Let me point you to Tom Coburn's Wikipedia article that says"

"On April 6, 2006, Coburn and Senators Barack Obama, Thomas Carper and John McCain introduced the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006."

Yes... that is right. The ONE law Obama worked on and passed he did so with John McCain.

Working with John McCain to pass a law... hey now THAT is real experience

Wow... winning the American Idol competition is now equivalent to being vetted.

No, he was elected in a primary---by the Democratic Party. And that is better 'vetting' than any committee or news reporters.

Good point. So, when Obama is president, he will be proud to work with McCain as the Republican maverick he once was.

Don't even pretend Obama has been vetted by "the people". All the Democrats I know can't name one thing Obama has done yet oddly enough I can (and did). The best answer I got was "he didn't vote for the war".

Oh my... he should be President based on one decision.

How you all decided he was better qualified than Hillary, Biden and Bill Richardson is beyond me but what is worse... he chose Biden over Hillary

This past Democratic primary was more like a surgery... to remove the "Clinton influence" from the party or at least reduce its power. She was stepped on and squashed like a bug.

All I can say is it is rather reckless to nominate a Senator who hasn't even finished his first term yet.

Even if you win... it will end up being a pyrrhic victory.
