The fact that we even know who this person is should be blamed squarely on John McCain, who recklessly insisted a year ago that Sarah Palin was the best choice of a running mate suitable to be a heartbeat away from the Oval Office. You know all those folks declaring that Obama is a Marxist, a Fascist, or a Hitler? They got their legitimacy when a United States major party Vice-Presidential candidate declared at her rallies that Obama had been “palling around with terrorists”. That health care town hall rage that brought out the birthers and gun enthusiasts had little to do with concerns about health care and everything to do with the fear that American just doesn’t look like it did 30 years ago, that Sarah Palin’s “real” America is gradually fading away.
46% of American voters preferred the ticket with the total nightmare that is Sarah Palin. Whatever you may think of the state of the nation right now, can you fathom, knowing all you know now about former-Governor Palin, an America with a President Palin at the helm?
By the way, the artist who did that portrait has done similar pancake portraits of other personalities, including Barack Obama.
