I want it to be over. I really want to pretend like it never even happened. I am not referring to any good love gone bad, nosiree, but rather to Alaska Governor Palin’s unprecedented and endless bask in public infamy. Now, it appears that some documentary filmmaker flew to Wasilla this past week to interview Miz Palin for a “media malpractice” documentary on how Obama got elected, or what I will blithely refer to as, It’s Over. You Lost. Get Over It.
While there are some poignant moments when you won’t be able to decide whether to hug, noogie, or just flat-out bitch-slap her, the interview evokes just enough of her patent (pending?) dissociated ramblings to help you choose. The focus here is the corrupt bloggers and spineless media that are capitalizing on her persona. You talkin’ to me? Oh girl, I know you’re not talkin’ to me!
It was her choice to accept the nomination, and in doing so, she essentially waived the right to privacy – of herself and her family. However, she brought our State into a less-than-flattering limelight, one that Alaskan voters never signed on for either… Nonetheless, the people have spoken and by golly, I’m glad they listened!
That said, I do not perceive her as a victim of unfair media. You check this out and tell me what YOU think. My favorite part is when she states with apparent confidence that we all would have liked her if she was Obama’s running mate instead….
I don’t think so. Now, Tina Fey… that’s another story.
