“Change” has been the pillar of this election season. But it’s hard to
be a genuine agent of change if those who craft your message of reform
come straight from the inner-circle of a president with the lowest approval
in modern American history. This video compilation, aired
during a segment of Countdown with Keith Olbermann on October 3,
shows the similarities in rhetoric and evasive strategies between George
Bush in 2000 and Sarah Palin. “Small surprise then that even in the
very act of claiming her background,” Olbermann reported, “her
experience [qualifies] her to offer us that change from Bush, she does so
sounding almost exactly like Bush.”
