There are foods no rational human would knowingly ingest: the stuff listed on this website.
Why would you eat a double bacon peanut butter egg and cheese burger with chipotle mayo?
Because you think it will taste good.
To be precise, a little child inside you thinks it will taste good. That little child is unconscious, and he seeks pleasure. Freud called him the “Id.” He doesn’t think. He reaches for something shiny because it’s shiny.
Welcome to the appeal of Sarah Palin.
Sarah is the political equivalent of marshmallow fluff, chocolate fudge, mac & cheese and cookie dough in a deep fryer.
Why does she look like she’ll taste good – and why is she so bad for you?:
FIRST REASON: Sarah has an easy answer for EVERYTHING.
Millions of Americans without healthcare? Sarah would shrink government while lowering costs, cutting taxes and creating jobs. It’s THAT SIMPLE!!
Foreign Affairs? Sarah would stand tall against our enemies and stop terrorism in its tracks while keeping us the strongest nation in the world.
Immigration? Sarah would stand up for real Americans and protect our jobs.
The environment? There’s plenty of oil – we just have to drill for it! Sarah doesn’t believe in global warming. We can do whatever we want. That’s what the planet’s there for – having fun!
What else is there?
Sarah would cut taxes, build the economy, create jobs, shrink government, make America strong and bring the family back – like things used to be in the olden days! Everything would be super!!
Does any of this make sense?
Does washing down a bag of Doritos with a two liter bottle of Mountain Dew and a super-size bag of peanut butter M&M’s make sense? Does it have to make sense?
It feels good. Until a few hours later. When you throw up.
SECOND REASON: Sarah’s just like you!
Palin’s Tea Party supporters are always stressing how “real” Sarah is. That word – “real” – is code for “just like me!” Your Id, like a small child, is by definition a narcissist – he cannot see where he stops and another person begins, so doesn’t see anyone or anything beyond his own reflection.
Neither does Sarah!
She brings you…you. Not like that weirdo Obama, who’s…well…umm…he looks “different” – you know what I mean?
Your Id wants to have fun. He seeks pleasure. That’s the “Pleasure Principle.” Your unconscious – this child – is utterly regressed. He likes sugar, and shiny things. He likes Sarah.
In case you need a male Sarah Palin? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
That would be Scott Brown.
