OK, I admit it....

Sarah Palin bugs the ever-loving crap out of me.

She reminds me of all the small-minded, self-righteous bozos I have spent a lifetime avoiding,

It's not just her stance on a woman's right to have control over her own health care. It's not just because she thinks shooting animals from helicopters is a fine way to spend a family outing. It's not because she thinks that governmental censorship of ideas is not a gross abuse of the First Amendment. It's not because she shares a scary us-and-them mentality when it comes to people with different belief systems than her own. It's not just because she hasn't a clue what is happening in the world beyond the borders of her small-town existence.

It is because she is closed-minded, ill-informed, and ignorant--- and she's so damned proud of it.

From day one, I have found her snide "humor" and smarmy BS irritating, but the more I hear her, I realize that she is not the clueless deer in the headlights that so many in the media would have us believe--- she's a socially (if not politically) savvy little witch who is using her gender to get away with things that we would not tolerate in a male candidate for half a second.

The Katie Couric interview was just plain sad. Palin's an insult to all the bright women in and out of politics who are far more qualified to speak to and for the American people.

I hope Joe Biden hands her her head tonight, but I'm afraid he won't.
