Rosanne Cash Would Make a Better VP than Sarah Palin

by jhwygirl

At least, that’s the premise she puts forth in a piece posted at The Nation….and I have to say, I agree.

Here’s a tidbit, on reproductive issues:

I also believe that a teenager’s pregnancy is a “private family matter.” In fact, I believe that every woman’s pregnancy is a “private, family matter.” (I bet the GOP never thought of making that leap!)

Or how about this, on her foreign policy experience?

Here’s where I really shine. Governor Palin got her first passport in 2007. I got my first passport in 1970, when the Governor was only 6 years old! Not only do I have a passport, I have actually been outside of the United States, dozens of times. I have had relationships and conversations with real foreigners, in their own countries, in restaurants, shops, flea markets, museums, nightclubs, spas, hotels, all modes of public transportation, and even in their own homes. My foreign policies are fair, inclusive and sensitive to cultural differences…I know Governor Palin has one distinct advantage in living so close to Russia, in that she can keep a close eye on nefarious activity across the Bering Strait, but I, too, live very close to a foreign country. Canada is less than 400 miles from my home in New York City, and you never know when it might become necessary to invade a sovereign nation that has not attacked us, as we learned the hard way. Not only that, I have a girlfriend in Austin, Texas, whom I’m going to ask to keep an eye on Mexico.

McCain sure blew it, didn’t he?

    She killed the Sweet Pea festival one year, and not in a good way, with her downer show. ‘Twas one of the bigger headliners, one of the worst shows. Had a brief career when Rodney Crowell was helping her with her stuff, and she released, “Seven year Ache”. That was about twenty five years ago, and she’s every bit that relevant.

    I’ve always preferred her “Easy from now on” step sister, Carlene Carter.

    Roseanne Cash played the Sweet Pea, Goof?
    When was that?

    She’s long been a favorite of mine. Saw her at the Great Falls fair once, & briefly met her and the band afterward on the midway. What sticks most in my mind from that show was her doing “Women are Smarter”.

    Of course I wholeheartedly disagree, but still, it was pretty cool!
    And now, “Green Yellow, Yellow to Red” is stuck in my head. She can bring the rawk, with or without Rodney.

    And yes, IMO, she puts Sarah completely in the shade. She wrote some of those hits, remember…

  3. Specifically speaking, goof flat-out missed the point.

    Not that long ago, Rimrock, in the memory of this dinosaur, ten years or so. It was Rosanne and her guitar and not a whiff of her second album (with “Man Smart
    Woman Smarter” and all those great Rodney Crowell songs) or “Seven Year Ache”.

    jh, I didn’t respond to the “point”, and that was MY point….

  5. goof – and I take it that ignoring THE POINT is working out for you?

  6. Mayor of Mayhem

    Goof, You really think Sara Palin will make a good V.P.?
