Sarah’s Big Adventure in Auburn, NY

images12

In the 1800’s, Auburn, New York used to be kind of an important place. It was a major stop on the Erie Canal, and the birthplace of Abner Doubleday – credited for inventing baseball. In addition, inmate William Kemmler took his last breath in Auburn Prison as the first person in the world to be executed by the electric chair.


Auburn is also the birthplace of William H. Seward, Secretary of State under Abraham Lincoln – who arranged the purchase of Alaska, known at the time as “Seward’s Folly”. That’s why Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska and former Republican nominee for Vice-President of the United States, is going there next month.


Say what? The Honorable Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, is coming to Auburn, NY (population: about 28,000)? Uhhh, what in heaven’s name for? Hey – I don’t know. I guess to thank Auburnians for buying her state and not using automatic beheading machines to execute prisoners who are turkeys. WhoTF knows?


But I do know this: two years from now, this ex-beauty queen will be running for President under the Republican banner championing Patriotism and Family Values. She will be grilled about her lack of knowledge of international leaders and their countries and what place America should play in the world. Right now she SHOULD be taking an intensive course of visiting as many countries as she can and LISTENING to every damn leader who will take the time to talk to her. Don’t even ASK ME to consider her a viable candidate for President until she has some international experience and education under her lipstick.


In 2011, when she’s asked by reporters about human rights violations in China and I hear her say, “Well, in 2009, I visited Auburn, NY, which invented the first electric chair for capital offenses….” – I’ll probably just break down and cry. I friggin’ swear! I’ll just break down and cry…………….

    I personally know serious, intelligent conservatives who are ready to vote for Sarah. They don’t care about her knowledge of other countries because they are basically isolationists to begin with. They pray Obama’a policies will fail and the nation will swing back to the GOP.

    She may look like a fool to us, but she is a genuine heroine to people who’d like to turn back the clock.

    The turkey incident that sickened you? Perfectly natural to the folks in farm country. Gobble gobble.
