|At the Broward Democratic Party's monthly meeting Tuesday night, it started right at the beginning — with the invocation, delivered by Mike Moskowitz, the state committeeman for the county.|
He called for a "blessing on the elk and moose in Alaska who have been decimated by Sarah Barracuda" and included a prayer that Palin doesn't turn her sights on the squirrels in Washington, D.C.
"We pray that her journey takes her across the bridge to nowhere," he said.
Monroe Kiar, the former Davie town attorney and father of state Rep. Martin Kiar, D-Davie, told the party gathering about his summer visit to Alaska.
Finding himself in Juneau, he said he visited the Capitol, while everyone else in the group went whale watching — a true mark of a political junkie.
The Capitol building was smaller than just about anything in Broward, he said. Palin is governor of a state of about 670,000 residents.
"That's disgraceful running for vice president," Kiar said. "Any one of our commissioners is more qualified to be vice president than she is."
Mitch Ceasar, the Broward Democratic chairman, also belittled Palin's level of experience.
Noting she previously served as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, he said that was nothing compared to the size of communities in Broward.
"She was elected mayor of one half of a [Broward] condo," Ceasar said. "And when she was elected governor of Alaska, she was elected [as the equivalent of] a Broward County commissioner."
I want to make something clear as a South Florida resident. There is no one in the position of a government official especially in the role of a Broward commissioner who is qualified to run for anything else other than a Broward County Commissioner.
Combine them with Miami-Dade County officials and you maybe find one who would be qualified to turn on a light switch.
