I caught the first half hour of Good Morning America today and…well, let me tell you it was a wild and crazy ride.
Sarah Palin is on a magical mystery bus tour to parts undisclosed.
Mmmhmm, Palin refuses to say where she’s going.
Reporters are left to either grab content of the tour from FOX (the only network with coverage of the tour and also Palin’s current employer)…or reporters can chase after the Palin bus as it darts to historic landmarks on it’s way to New Hampshire (allegedly and not confirmed…probably overheard at a Starbuck’s before or after the Memorial Day Harley ride).
Almost a candidate, Palin says she owes nothing to the mainstream media…she wants to see them work for their coverage of her…so she’s waging a maverickish war on traditional politics by chugging across America in a Where’s Waldo revival.
If this shit is a glimpse into how she’d govern…well, I guess the masses will have to decide if they want the Executive Branch to be run like a trivia night fundraiser.
After covering Palin, Good Morning America moved on to Rep. Bachmann. George asked Bachmann whether she’d support the Ryan budget…if she’d sign into law as President what she voted for in Congress.
Bachmann attempted to do a political two-step, but it came across as more of an awkward rope a dope…and the rope won.
Or was it the dope?
Bachmann supports the Ryan budget…but wouldn’t say if she’d sign it if she were President...but, heck yeah she voted for it! She somehow thinks that America will be able to focus on cures for major illnesses…like how we did for Polio…but she offers no framework through which that kind of effort could be achieved. Bachmann likes Palin…they’re friends…she wants to be compared to President Obama…has raised 28 children in her house…and will be making an announcement in Waterloo Iowa but won’t say what she’s gonna announce but trust that it’s gonna be a whopper!
Pause…sip more coffee…continue.
Lawd, have mercy – if this is a taste of the race for the GOP nomination to come, I’m going to make some popcorn and enjoy the show!
