POLITICAL DICHOTOMIES….

GERALDINE YES….SARAH NO?…HMMM….GIVE ME A D….NOT AN R….

“Where is it written that only senators are qualified to become President? . . . Or where is it written that mere representatives aren’t qualified, like Geraldine Ferraro of Queens? . . . Where is it written that governors and mayors, like Dianne Feinstein of San Francisco, are too local, too provincial? . . . Presidential candidates have always chosen their running mates for reasons of practical demography, not idealized democracy. . . . What a splendid system, we say to ourselves, that takes little-known men, tests them in high office and permits them to grow into statesmen. . . . Why shouldn’t a little-known woman have the same opportunity to grow?”

SALLY’S SILLY INTERVIEW….SHE MARRIED HER “EXPERIENCE”…

“SALLY QUINN…. finger pointed over Palin’s lack of qualifications…

“But then there’s this delightful profile of Quinn from Time‘s archives. Of particular interest is a passage describing her job interview at the Post:

“Can you show me something you’ve written?” asked Managing Editor Benjamin Bradlee. “I’ve never written anything,” admitted Quinn. Pause. “Well,” said Bradlee, “nobody’s perfect.”

Quinn was given the job, and later she and Bradlee were married.”

SO ABOUT THAT SURGE….AND MCCAIN-BUSH…NOT FEELING THE LOVE…..”O” K IT WORKED….

(from Bob Woodward’s new book)…

“Woodward notes that Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama opposed the surge, while GOP presidential candidate John McCain was “advocating more troops for years.” Woodward also quotes McCain expressing frustration with the Bush White House, clenching his fists in the West Wing and exclaiming to Woodward: “Everything is f—ing spin.”

(from the O’Reilly interview)…..

“O’REILLY: But if it had been up to you there would not have been a surge. You and Joe Biden, no surge.

OBAMA: Hold on, if you look at the the debate that was taking place. We had gone through five years of mismanagement of this war, which I thougth was disastrous, and the president wanted to double down and continue and open-ended policy that did not create the kind of pressure on the Iraqis to take responsibility and reconcile.

O’REILLY: But it worked, come on.

OBAMA: Bill, look – I already said it succeeded beyond our wildest dreams.

O’REILLY: Why can you not say, ‘I was right in the beginning, but I was wrong on the surge?’

OBAMA: Because there is an underlying problem with what we have done. We have reduced the violence. But the Iraqis have still not taken responsibility. And we still do not have the kind of political reconciliation — we are still spending, Bill, $10 billion or $12 billion a month”

In the Pelican ….9/5/08….Michael d’Oliveira…

“Silence brings abuse.” said Biden, raising his voice. He compared the plight of Muslims murdered in Bosnia to that of Jews living in Europe during the 1930s and 40s….”Genocide is genocide, is genocide” he said……

” The Senator also stressed the strong support that he and Presidential running -mate, Illinois Senator Barack Obama, both share for the security of Israel saying ” America is the last, best chance for that.”….
