"We're on the road to nowhere"

Today, I tried to do the impossible; I intended to do my shopping, no list! While listening to the latest Sigur Ros album on my headphones, it can't be done.. The beauty and melancholia of this particular cd, makes it very hard, not to say impossible to concentrate on the task at hand!...

But I'm trying to pass the time... Tomorrow evening is the much awaited debate between VPs Palin and Biden... And I can hardly wait...
 I must admit, I'm like the bystander fascinated by the gruesome scene of a car accident. 
I want to see Palin's political crash, live;
 The whole " Russia Vs Alaska " experience, ( Maybe that's why, The Finns along with I.e. the Bulgarians are such mayor players on the international arena, their proximity to Russia!?) I want to hear her talk herself out of the blatant truth bending; According to her convention speech; Palin "said Thanks, but no thanks" to the "Bridge to nowhere" -But; She did support that infamous pork project in her 2006 run for governor. And even after the Congress had killed the bridge; She derided it's opponents as "Spinmeisters". She reversed her stance a year later, - but kept the money, doling out the 223 million $ in federal funds to other pork projects throughout Alaska...
 And as a mayor she managed to build a hockey- ("oh, I'm just a hockeymum" !!) Arena= Cost ; 15 million $ in a town with a annual 20 million $ budget (!!)- She broke the ground without finalizing the city's (Wasillia) purchase of the land. The resulting legal chaos did cost Wasillia; 1.3 million $ ... Yep," She's all against wasting taxpayers money" ( J. McCain introducing Palin )

 (Alaska ranks number 1 in USA in federal spending per resident, even it's just 18th in federal taxes paid per resident, which again means that all tax paying non Alaskans spend 8.500$ a year on each and every resident of Palin's paradise of self-sufficiency - On top of this; Alaska currently collects the most taxes per resident of any state in the nation!! Oh, did I emphasize that Sarah Palin is a sworn enemy of taxes?)

Ahr... Can't wait to see all those brand new myths come tumbling down in live TV, televised all over the world
 Oh, I almost forgot; What about all the well rehearsed answers, she has dished out during her (obviously!) very few interviews? She must have rehearsed some new ones! 

Her biggest asset has been, that she reminds you of some ones cousin; The "She so normal" factor... well, maybe it'll be her downfall as too; Cause maybe, just maybe.. Americans will be able to recognize her for what she is; A unqualified, religious zealot, a fake Conservative who raised taxes and porked up every earmarked millions, she could get her hands on! 
As some one said; "The scariest thing about Sara Palin isn't how unqualified she is - It's what her candidacy says about America!"

That debate, has the makings of "The all time greatest TV hour"! Won't miss it, for anything!
