"you can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig"

Adenda 1 (12/Set/15:18) :
Entrevista à ABC
Can you tell the difference?
Miss South Carolina, Miss Teen USA 2007//Miss Alaska 1984:
Adenda 2 (12/Set/15:26)
Entrevista à ABC- excerto da análise do Pedro Dória
Os analistas ouvidos pelo Politco.com se dividem na avaliação da entrevista. Quando perguntada se ela acredita na Doutrina Bush – os EUA têm o direito de atacar quem quiser no mundo mesmo sem provocação – ela responde confusa. ‘Em que sentido? A visão de mundo dele?’ Gibson tem que explicar do que se trata. Gibson pergunta, então, o que ela entende sobre segurança nacional. Ela dá uma resposta a respeito de independência energética. Gibson rebate: ‘mas segurança nacional é bem mais do que isso.’ Ela insiste em sua resposta. Noutro trecho, o repórter tenta pressioná-la para falar sobre as causas do Aquecimento Global. McCain defende que o homem é o agente provocador. No passado, Palin renegou a possibilidade. Ela volta atrás em sua resposta – ‘em parte é responsabilidade do homem’. Gibson a desafia: ‘não foi o que você disse no passado’. Ela diz que jamais foi preemptória.

Matt Damon , mete o ferro na piada de mau gosto que é a candidatura de Sarah Palin: " like a really bad Disney movie", "The Hockey Mom.' Oh, I'm just a hockey mom from Alaska, and she's president...She's facing down Vladimir Putin and using the folksy stuff she learned at the hockey rink. It’s totally absurd… it’s a really terrifying possibility.”

Entretanto....tem em versão Executiva, Colegial e Heroína. Nas melhores lojas da especialidade.

eu acho que a hockey mom já andou a dizer umas coisas que não devia sobre a rússia, mas isto sou eu que detesto política e não gosto nada dela

Fado Alexandrino disse...

As mulheres, graças a Deus, estão ater um papel fundamental nestas eleições.
Agora foi Pamela Anderson que diz:

...Pamela Anderson has spoken out against Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin saying:"I can't stand her. She can suck it!"

Não podia estar mais de acordo.

Geoffrey Kruse-Safford disse...

It is really embarrassing to be an American right now. Sarah Palin should be laughed off the political stage.

"Hockey Mom" . . . What a bunch of crap.

Anónimo disse...

Será de mau gosto a candidatura de Sarah Palin? Não se esqueçam que, do outro lado está o império expansionista de Putin que, se não tiver quem o trave, não vai parar! E, a Europa, pendurada na energia deste senhor, não pode abrir muito o bico. Sendo assim, custa-me acreditar que, por aqui, alguém refute o que Sarah diz quanto à recente invasão da Geórgia e das medidas a tomar para evitar novos casos destes.

hi dear friend! well, it must be. really!

i found this anda i think is true....

Sarah Palin's most revealing response to Charles Gibson was her unqualified statement that she never had the slightest doubt about her readiness to be President. The woman doesn't even know enough to know she doesn't know enough.

That astonishing declaration of ignorance, hubris and conceit ought to leave every American demanding that John McCain explain what on earth he was thinking in exposing the nation to someone who needs a week of intense briefings just to answer predictable questions from Charles Gibson and who seems to think being President is little more than memorizing right wing talking points and no more challenging than being President of the local PTA.

The fact that the media has to perform this vetting process is both insulting to voters and absurd; it is making us an international laughing stock. It's time for the media to say that being qualified to be President is not the same as being able to pass a quiz at the end of remedial course in foreign events. It's time to demand that John McCain answer for his utter lack of judgment.

as criticas à entrevista são fantasticas...loool

como essa aí em cima

Um apontamento sobre o que pensa uma colega do colega

Herald Tribune
Gibson, who sat back in his chair and wriggled his foot impatiently, had the skeptical, annoyed tone of a university president who agrees to interview the daughter of a trustee, but doesn't believe she merits admission.
When he asked her, slowly and solemnly to "look the country in the eye" and say whether she truly felt qualified to be vice president and possibly commander in chief, Gibson seemed to expect Palin to express at least a moment of humility and self-doubt

Personal Note: Some people are actually trying to defend Palin by stating that "most people don't know what the Bush Doctrine is either."
This may (or may not) be true. However, MOST PEOPLE AREN'T RUNNING FOR VICE-PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. She is.

ora nem mais!!

Geoffrey Kruse-Safford disse...

Yeah, Cris, the entire interview came across to me like an oral exam for a Master's or Doctorate degree (do you have that system in Portugal?). Gibson was being patient, I think, because he was trying to get past the canned, programmed answers she kept giving. While I think it likely Obama will still win, even the chance this woman could hold high office makes me shudder.

pois...é a verdadeira "sem-noção". ou a verdadeira inconsciência dos limites..lá na ideia dela, tem todas as condições para deter o "nuclear code" como diz o Matt Damon..

dalloway disse...

Com estes atropelamentos todos criei uma expectativa que é no fundo pensar (ou mesmo desejar) que os americanos que estão em dúvida em quem votar e aqueles que se deixaram encantar com a senhora Palin, se apercebam a tempo e com a ajuda real e concreta dos debates das próximas semanas, que esta Vice está repleta de armadilhas, desfasamentos, incongruências, desconhecimento de áreas fundamentais de politica externa e todo o resto que me parece demasiado americano e plástico o que por si só me impossibilita argumentar.
Mas depois caio na realidade quando tenho o tal inevitável pensamento de causa efeito, que é no fundo pensar que os americanos dificilmente escolhem bem e melhor exemplo foi a segunda eleição de Bush!

Fado Alexandrino disse...

Agora outra versão, em Americano.
Este Gibson pelos vistos dever ter milhares de amigos lá nos States!

"At times visibly nervous . . . Ms. Palin most visibly stumbled when she was asked by Mr. Gibson if she agreed with the Bush doctrine. Ms. Palin did not seem to know what he was talking about. Mr. Gibson, sounding like an impatient teacher, informed her that it meant the right of 'anticipatory self-defense.' "
-- New York Times, Sept. 12

Informed her? Rubbish.

The New York Times got it wrong. And Charlie Gibson got it wrong.
There is no single meaning of the Bush doctrine. In fact, there have been four distinct meanings, each one succeeding another over the eight years of this administration -- and the one Charlie Gibson cited is not the one in common usage today. It is utterly different.
He asked Palin, "Do you agree with the Bush doctrine?"
She responded, quite sensibly to a question that is ambiguous, "In what respect, Charlie?"
Sensing his "gotcha" moment, Gibson refused to tell her. After making her fish for the answer, Gibson grudgingly explained to the moose-hunting rube that the Bush doctrine "is that we have the right of anticipatory self-defense."
Wrong!

I know something about the subject because, as the Wikipedia entry on the Bush doctrine notes, I was the first to use the term. In the cover essay of the June 4, 2001, issue of the Weekly Standard entitled, "The Bush Doctrine: ABM, Kyoto, and the New American Unilateralism," I suggested that the Bush administration policies of unilaterally withdrawing from the ABM treaty and rejecting the Kyoto protocol, together with others, amounted to a radical change in foreign policy that should be called the Bush doctrine
