Colin Powell ‘Called In Gay’ On Wednesday

Maybe he didn’t go that far, but I am pleased to see Mr. Powell continue to progress.  Is he still considered a Republican?  He surprised many earlier this year when he officially supported Obama for President and now he is sharing his opinion that ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ should be reevaluated. 

Additionally, he discusses the polarizing effects of Sarah Palin-like politics on the Republican Party and the considerations that will have to be addressed if the party is going to redefine itself.

Here’s an email from a friend: 

I’m a little confused. Let me see if I have this straight…..

* If you grow up in Hawaii , raised by your grandparents, you’re ‘exotic, different.’
* Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.

* If your name is Barack you’re a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
* Name your kids Willow , Trig and Track, you’re a maverick.

* Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
* Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you’re well grounded.

* If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate’s Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran’s Affairs committees, you don’t have any real leadership experience.
* If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you’re qualified to become the country’s second highest ranking executive and next in line behind a man in his eighth decade.

* If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you’re not a real Christian.
* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and then left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you’re a true Christian.

* If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
* If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state’s school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you’re very responsible.

* If your wife is a Harvard graduate laywer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family’s values don’t represent America ‘s.
* If you’re husband is nicknamed ‘First Dude’, with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn’t register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.

OK, much clearer now.

Here’s my commentary via text messaging with a friend during Sarah Palin’s speech. I tried to be funny to avoid being so pissed at the tone of her speech, but at the end I just got mad and diappointed and then shut it off:

Friend: You watching Palin?
Me: Uh, no. I hear she’s a bitch in this speech. OK, now I am.

Friend: Good to watch the enemy.
Me: She is a hag among a bunch of rich, smug people. Oh wow, Track (or whatever his name is) needs to use some eye cream stat! Isn’t he 19? 

Friend: McCain’s wife is holding her baby.
Me: Baby daddy spotted! Where’s Algebra? (Trig joke)

Friend: She named her kids after horses and brooms. 
Me: LOL. Cindy is dressed like a Christmas tree in Stepford. Sarah is going to prom right after this. Hey, I wonder what % of registered republicans vote versus registered dems? Oh, here we go: Country first, um, yeah. This country is in the shitter right now. 

Friend: Yeah, she’s small town America. Just like every one of you folks on welfare. 
Me: Karen Walker wants her hairpiece back. 

Friend: Yeah, beige on black, good look for TV. Whoops, who let the hippie in? (As she’s being led away) 
Me: McCain’s Mom thinks she’s in Disneyland right now. I don’t mind her (Palin) as much as I detest the smugness of the Republican party as a whole. Their smug asses. Oh, luxury jet on Ebay, the Republicans are laughing nervously now! 

Me: Power of veto is a term from Big Brother. Half of the laughter is very nervous laughter from the old school. Oh wait, promoting change is what McCain’s about even though he supported Bush over 90% of the time!
