Palin Must Quit? Update: Another Moron Heard From Update: Palin Disappointment like Teenage Love?(Kat-Mo)

Kathleen Parker is struck by the Eagleton Fairy.

I'm not going to cut any part out and paste it. Parker gets a load of the Big Financial problem in our face and decides that Palin is incapable of handling the crisis and she should leave the national politics of crashing markets to the idiot national politicians that got us here in the first place.

Brilliant idea.

Then she totally buys into the Obama campaign's "heartbeat away from the presidency" crap. Palin's not ready to be President?

No kidding, Sherlock, that's why she's on the ticket as a VP. She's meant to do what VPs normally do: beat the drum for the president's policies, help organize the team and, maybe, spearhead some programs. She's not here to run the world from the VP's office. If she's good, she'll learn the job and come out fighting in 2012. If not, unless she accidentally shoots McCain on a moose hunting trip, this is a non-issue.

I think some folks just got a little too used to Dick Cheney being a power player in the background. That worked out well, huh? And, seriously, Joe Biden...Uncle Joe as VP. He's out there blundering around like a blind man in a midget porn shop.

"Oh...excuse me. So sorry...pardon me, is that, Gawd luv ya...stand up! Stand up! What? You are standing? What was I touching?"

I don't care about Joe's "Foreign Policy" experience. Does anybody really think Biden is going to be out front of an Obama presidency "representin'"?

Secondly, maybe Kathleen didn't get the talking points memo from DKos? John McCain is a vampire. He can't die. He is going to suck all of the joy out of every little Democrat kid praying for an Obama presidency and live for another term.

Look, Kathleen...can I call you "Kathleen"? Get your panties out of a twist. Seriously, if you want to vote for Obama because you are scared about McCain's presidency, just come out and say it. Don't get all righteous now and pretend Palin's VP slot matters more than it does.

Seriously, anybody suggesting the Eagleton option 40 days from the election, is suggesting that McCain default on the election. Don't vote for him if it bothers you that much, but stop acting like this is even an option.

Grab a bag and start breathing into it. You're hyperventilating all over the election.

As far as the Couric interview or even Gibson, she's doing what she was asked to do by the McCain folks. She's sticking directly to the McCain policies and saying his name a lot. They don't want her to go off the reservation too much because they know that the press and the opponents are not going to forgive her like they do Biden's "coal plants" moments. They aren't.

Jesus, Mary and Sarah Palin know it, too. You don't like the format? We're playing high stakes poker here, not penny ante making a wish on the pages of NRO.

Yes, I'd love to hear if she has some other thoughts on how to the run the government, but she's the VP not the president. It is McCain's policies that matter.

You can ask Sarah for her opinion on the subject in 2012.

Update: Crackerhead (can I say "cracker?") Rod Drehr throws in "I'm embarrased for her."

Seriously? Have you looked in the mirror lately?

UPDATE: Down in comments, I thought this earlier:

Oh, there may be one more thing. We all want her to be awesome-fucking-brilliant and instead she's only pretty damn good. The disappoint pains more than the damn-goodness rewards.

She'll get over it and so will the rest of us.

That's it, really. I like Sarah Palin. I really like her. But I don't have to love her. Besides the fact that I don't swing that way, the point is, she's the VP slot. Half of these people are acting like they just had their first teenage crush only to discover that the love of their life actually wears braces and has pimples.

Yes. I want Palin to be "normal" America. I don't give a monkey's ass about being able to give a f*cking Shakespearian Oratory without stuttering. I want her to be normal because I'm tired of the "I've been to Washington for 90 f*cking years so lick my boot" politicians. I dislike the new politicians who already know they are politicians and get absorbed into Washington like freaking members of the borg. Obama.

I don't want her to fit in. I don't want her to look like them or act like them.

That is the whole point. The rest of these sad f*cks just can't get over that they aren't dating Margaret Thatcher in Claudia Schiffer's body.

It's just Sarah Palin, Hockey Mom with a Veto pin that she's not a fraid to use.

Get it?
