"Sarah Palin Scares Me!"by Taco Werewolf
18"x24" acrylic painting on Masonite
Friday, August 29th, 2008 was John McCain's birthday but this year it was also a day of horror for me. On August 28th Barack Obama gave his wonderful, inspiring speech at Invesco Field to cap off the Democratic convention. It was sure to give him a bounce in the polls but this good feeling would not last for long as the SARAH PLAIN ALASKAN HORROR SHOW quickly followed the very next day when John McCain, on his birthday, announced that the female, gun-toting, bible-thumping, moose-hunting governor of Alaska would be his vice-presidential running-mate. Shortly thereafter, Senators Obama and Joe Biden would become the "moose" of many Republicans' jokes and I've tried to depict that here by portraying them both with moose antlers.
Sarah Palin scares me! When John McCain announced her I was filled with dread and horror, not only because of some of the dreadful things I'd heard about her but because I was scared to death of all the enthusiasm she was was conjuring up amongst the Republican base, namely among the ultra right-wing religious conservatives. I'll admit, I am scared of Sarah Palin because I am afraid she is going to take away the votes of disgruntled Hillary supporters. I am afraid of her because she is adorable and cute. If I did not lean Democrat I would actually like her quite a bit. She has a sparkling personality. She is definitely quite a character and seems like one of the most compelling, genuine politicians to ever hit the national political scene but she scares the hell out of me because I am afraid she is going to help McCain beat Obama!!
I was hoping like hell she would screw up her speech at the Republican convention but she gave one of the all-time classic speeches in American political history! "A pit bull with lipstick," she said, all those great lines she delivered as the zealous, conservative base in the audience hooted and hollered and screamed "Drill, baby, drill!" It seemed like they were all laughing directly at me for being an Obama supporter. Every time Sarah made a wise crack about Obama I took it personal. It hurt my feelings and it made me mad. But most of all it scared me, this woman scared me! She even walked around carrying a mentally handicapped baby to everyone's delight, like it was all some horrible freak show, some terrible bad movie I was watching. I read stories on the Internet of her hunting down baby wolves and shooting them in the head and since I am a big fan of werewolves you can imagine how this made me feel, like Sarah Palin was personally out to get ME!!
Then I read of her Penecostal religious beliefs, her extreme anti-abortion convictions and book-banning practices. I saw her husband, Todd Palin, and he seemed so nice and easy-going. I thought he must be some sort of saint, almost Christ-like, to be able to live with a woman who seemed so horrible and inspired so much fear in the hearts of liberals everywhere. All these horrible images of Sarah Palin and the Alaskan Hell she was bringing to the continental U.S. consumed me and I wanted to make a painting to somehow convey the feelings of fear and awe Sarah Palin inspired in me and still does to this day. I can't hear her speak in that shrill, terrifying, piercing voice without my heart thumping like mad, without my brow perspiring and without my soul shaking and shivering, this woman scares me so much!! It is with these feelings, thoughts and ideas of Sarah Palin that I made this painting I've entitled, appropriately, "SARAH PALIN SCARES ME!!!"
