Hypocrite of the Year

For crying out loud it is new year’s eve and I have been obsessing on the negatives. We need to put a shiny face on all the hypocrisy and have a good laugh. To that end, I nominate All the Hypocrisy’s first annual “Hypocrite of the Year”, a woman who has brought me so much joy, my wife…just kidding, that is, Sarah “Caribou Barbie” Palin!!

Also, I would like to announce that next year’s hypocrite of the year will be determined by an actual vote….WE’RE WORKING ON IT!

And lets hope the Obama team can change some of these same hypocritical problems that have nagged us for years.

    Just for the record, much as we love Sarah, she’s more like Hypocrite of the Month. She’s still not a patch on the ass of G.W. I’m sure she’ll be ready to snatch his crown by 2012 though. Bush’s former aides seem to think she’s qualified:

    Lawrence Wilkerson, top aide and later chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, said that as a new president, Bush was like Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee whom critics said lacked knowledge about foreign affairs. When Bush first came into office, he was surrounded by experienced advisers like Vice President Dick Cheney and Powell, who Wilkerson said ended up playing damage control for the president.

    “It allowed everybody to believe that this Sarah Palin-like president — because, let’s face it, that’s what he was — was going to be protected by this national-security elite, tested in the cauldrons of fire,” Wilkerson said, adding that he considered Cheney probably the “most astute, bureaucratic entrepreneur” he’d ever met.

    “He became vice president well before George Bush picked him,” Wilkerson said of Cheney. “And he began to manipulate things from that point on, knowing that he was going to be able to convince this guy to pick him, knowing that he was then going to be able to wade into the vacuums that existed around George Bush — personality vacuum, character vacuum, details vacuum, experience vacuum.”
