(Should be a hat tip here, but I don’t quite know upon whom I should bestow it, so…)
Probably gonna get a WITY from HDD on this one – but, what the hell, I prob’ly deserve it.
Denizens, for lo these last two years or so, you guys know I’ve been an ardent supporter of Sarah Palin. Even when she started saying and doing things that raised the proverbial SpatulaEyebrow, I was in her corner, and would have supported her in any political venture she chose to undertake. (And maybe the fact that she’s a hawtie with a nice rack had something to do with that.
Bite Sue me.)
That all came to a screeching halt the other day. And here’s why.
Whodathunkit: The Thrilla from Wasilla, Mrs. USA, the grizzliest mama of them all is A-OK with folks getting stoned in the privacy of their own homes. “If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm,” former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said recently on FOX News, the fuzz should just leave them be.
Sorry, Sarah. Any hint that marijuana’s “okay” for any purpose whatsoever is a Red Flag in Your Obdt. Svt’s book.
MERLIN: What about medicinal marijuana, m’liege?
VENOMOUS: Want my take on that? Go here. Foamy is bang-on, right-on-the-nose right. People who scream for “medicinal marijuana” don’t give two shits about the medicinal part of it – they just wanna get high.
Awright, where was I…?
Oh, yeah. Here’s the other money quote:
Palin said during her appearance that law enforcement resources are wasted on the war against fun. “Perhaps there are other things that our cops should be looking at to engage in and try to clean up some of the other problems that we have in society that are appropriate for law enforcement to do and not concentrate on such a, relatively speaking, minimal problem that we have in the country.”
Der Sarahcuda, lemme tell you a story:
There was a mayoral candidate some time ago who campaigned on the platform of cleaning up his city. The townspeople there had grown increasingly weary of their city’s horrific image to the rest of the world, so this was music to their ears. They elected him, based on that campaign platform.
The newly-elected mayor got to work immediately. First thing he did was to get the city council to agree to pass an ordinance prohibiting cracked/broken windows in the storefronts. It was mandated that the streets of his town were going to look like people cared for them. The windows got fixed.
Next, he ordered a crackdown on all crime in the city. From jaywalking on up – if you were caught thumbing your nose at this town’s laws, you were going to be held accountable.
Yeah, people screamed about it. Bitched loud & long about living in a “police state”, among other things. But you could soon tell the difference. The town cleaned up its act, and is no longer widely regarded as a cesspool.
The town was, of course, New York City. The mayor’s name – assuming you haven’t guessed by now, Sarah – was Rudolph Giuliani. He brought the city back, put the shine back on the Big Apple.
And he did it by not overlooking the seemingly trivial. He paid attention to detail. He addressed even the smallest things that needed addressing.
He adopted a “zero tolerance” policy for his city, because he knew – as you need to learn, Sarah – that when people see you tolerate something, the voices in the back of their heads begin to ask what else you’re willing to overlook. And they begin to push the envelope, until – well, have you looked at southern Arizona lately? B. HUSSEIN!!!!! Obambi’s given about 3,500 acres back to Felipe “Don Juan al Pendejo” Calderón and his drug-cartel jackals, in part because once upon a time, Sarah, some high muckety-much thought as you did and decided that aw shucks, pot ain’t that bad, what’s the harm in overlooking the fact that we made it illegal?
So adiós, Sarah. You’ve lost my vote, and I will no longer support you for any political office. There are too many other pols who don’t want to slap the people who voted against pot in their collective face to promote you over them.
Enjoy your next toak, buttercup. Hope you think it was worth it.
