An Open Letter to Sarah

Reading time – 32 seconds  .  .  . 

Hi Sarah, it’s me.

We heard you announce that you’re looking into running for the Republican nomination to be President of the United States. That really should come as no surprise to anyone remotely familiar with you as the half-term former governor of Alaska who quit when someone flashed a big wad of  money in your face. It seems that you like the attention and the cash that follow political campaign announcements.

Is your “maybe” declaration of running just another ploy to be in the spotlight? If you do run you likely would get some votes, because Abe Lincoln was right when he said that you can fool some of the people all the time. But, Sarah, get real: you’ll probably get attention from the Fox News watchers, but you can’t possibly win the office.

One of the things you’re really good at is saying outrageous things that ensure that you get attention. No need to provide examples, since nearly everything that dribbles from your lips matches that description. So, Sarah, do us all a favor and get yourself into extended psychotherapy to deal with your bottomless pit of neediness.

The message here is that there is only one thing that you’re really good at, Sarah, and that is promoting Sarah. That’s it. Nothing more. You are the twinkly promise of something substantial and you consistently deliver a bag full of nothing. Sadly for you, Sarah, America needs better than that.

So, Sarah, I speak not just for myself, but for millions of Americans who are on to your tricks, your self-serving flamboyance and your extremely low standards of integrity when I say, “Sarah, go home. Or on an extended trip. Anywhere. Just go away.”

No, really. Far away. It’s the best way for you to serve America, and you’re all about public service, right? Oh wait – that half-term governor thing. Hmmmm  .  .  .


Ed. note: There is much in America that needs fixing and we are on a path to continually fail to make things better. It is my goal to make a difference – perhaps to be a catalyst for things to get better. That is the reason for these posts. To accomplish the goal requires reaching many thousands of people and a robust dialogue.

    Perhaps she could get Michelle Bachmann to be her running mate. Wouldn’t that be a match made in heaven!
