McCain and Palin's Mounting Bad Karma
Interesting link I dug up. I was actually looking for references to the karma the righties are feeling right now after excoriating John Edwards for his haircut. Seeing as how SP's wardrobe costs 7.5 years of *weekly* $400 haircuts...

The other day, someone asked me what I think of Sarah Palin. Shes a mirror of our own ignorance, I replied.

Americans are by and large an ambitious bunch. We worship winning and getting ahead.

The U.S. produced McCain-Palin. They have that special and especially ugly American flavor. We can look in the McCain-Palin mirror and see our own uncertainty, our own vacillations, our own anger and especially our own ambition. We can see a reflection of our own national and personal ignorance.


It's well known among us that Palin is a mirror of the worst of us, but it was an added twist to see the Tantra's take on it, and see that it's in agreement.

1. heard Chuck Todd today
Saying the vibes between McCain and Palin are terrible, and that they are very uncomfortable with each other. He got this through their body language. Honestly, he talked about it for five minutes or so. It must have made a huge impression on him. I have to say this doesn't surprise me.

Spending that much money for clothes was pretty stupid, but I don't really care about it. Campaigns waste money on things more frivolous than that, I am sure. I don't care much about haircut cost either though. She might be going back to Alaska with a great new wardrobe.

If McCain and Palin are a mirror for America, it appears that most of us aren't happy with what we see when we look in the mirror!! Look, they are both energetically messed up--no doubt.

2. I'd take a good, hard look right now any day...

... over the required posturing of confidence in our society and workplaces, "confidence" that's better described as "shoot from the hip and never look back no matter what-- or whom-- you've shot."

They say awareness you have a problem is the first step? Consider this portrait of sheer ugliness-- but one that TALKS pretty, that SAYS it's completely righteous and benign!-- that first step.

3. they are a sign of the times BEFORE the economic problems
There is always a shift in consciousness with a recession/depression. Sans the economic difficulties, if people were still flying high, flipping houses, getting outrageous loans and outrageous salaries, they would have been more in synch with most Americans.

They are both very shallow people, and their energy fits with others more readily during an unsustainable economic boom period. Even people that are going to vote for them generally don't like them that much now.

I can tell now that there is going to be a lot of finger pointing for all this mess, as well as prosecutions. And people will feel grateful just to have a job. They seem more of a mirror for 2005 than 2008--which is why they aren't polling that well.

4. Spending that sort of money on herself tells us all we need to know about any
financial policies she'd initiate. At least this repub is blatantly clear regarding personal priorities and entitlement- and as mentioned above, that we may note it and reject it completely.

I hope so, as I do not believe that anyone in America has learned a single thing regarding the part of them that has manifested and is mirrored in George Bush. And the need to not be like that.

5. I don't like the energy of the unsustainable boom.
Edited on Wed Oct-22-08 09:47 PM by MonteLukast
It started with Clinton, really, when I noticed that despite what you would think about a good economy making people more generous, that people were actually becoming LESS generous. You're not part of their family, or one of their closest friends? No time for you! You're in economic need? Too bad, you're on your own! You have worn-out shoe soles? Don't re-sole them; throw 'em away and get new ones! "The more stitches, the less riches"...

What is it about unsustainable booms that makes people stingy of themselves? Is it because deep down we KNOW it's unsustainable and we want to get it while it's hot? That's understandable; but wastefulness if we know the whole thing is unsustainable is a lot less logical.

7. "...they are very uncomfortable with each other."
Their relationship is based on mutual usury. He is using her to humanize his image and she is using him to improve her political status. No love, affection, or respect between them.

6. Do you remember
Edited on Thu Oct-23-08 03:44 AM by votesomemore
the 80's being the "ME" generation? It started with Reagan. Everyone was flying high because his policies gave the initial impression that there was more than enough to go around. Of course that was accomplished by throwing millions of people into the streets, including mental patients. Homelessness started with Reagan. We have never recovered.

You're right in your post below.
The current day mantra is, "DGI"..."Don't get involved". I see it all the time. So many people are not willing to live in Integrity. There was a television show earlier in the year that taped candid set up scenarios with someone acting violent, or insensitive, rudely, or some other "unacceptable" behavior. The people who did not come to aid were questioned, and gave the response, "DGI". It's prevalent, and I wonder how we get there from here.

ps.. I'm glad the SmirkingChimp is wrong about Palin. Women, especially, cannot stand her. There are some who adore her, and we know what that says about them. nuf said .. She isn't the sensation they were hoping for, exactly. She is MEAN. Meaner than Bush maybe. Who knew anyone could accomplish that.
