Sarah Palin: Still An Embarrassment? You Betcha…

CASK1BXKCAXBKDK9CAA3A0R9CALYL5CTCAC77KGKCAZJZI4FCAWX9Y95CAI36H3PCAP4TBZ5CALB7S4ICAALKGI4CA01UX1ICAQ0NOPUCAKL3PHGCA2GCIKFCARBEODGCA8251HDCAUPN1AU

And so it makes three…..

After Republican Sen. John Ensign, NV, declaring one week, that he indeed did ‘have sex with that woman,’  his staffer, it was Republican Gov. Mark Sanford’s, SC, turn.  And he is still talking as I am writing this…  Erotic confessions about his Latin lover’s tan lines and breasts, and lines he may or may not have crossed completely with other women, and about hiking in Appalachia, or having sex in Argentina, or both…  And he’s still talking, to the point where one of his Republican brothers in SC wished in an interview, that he would just  ‘SHUT UP!’ Now, who could top both of those stories?  Of course, there’s always the  ‘ Sarah Freak Show,’  topping everything else!  And she didn’t disappoint.

And that makes three…  🙂

On a Friday afternoon, at the beginning of a long 4th of July weekend, probably hoping, it would somehow get buried in that news cycle, here was good old Sarah with her never ending Freak Show, announcing that she would not run for a second term as Governor of Alaska.  Okay, most people expected that.  But wait!  There’s more!  She announced that she would also abandon the governorship by resigning at the end of this month.  WOW!

I literally had to force myself to listen to the entire 18 or so minutes of her incoherent, badly delivered, rambling speech.  It was pure torture!  Republicans will have to decide if they want to continue to be associated with this darling of the know-nothing, loony wing of their party.  It’s pretty telling, when Republican strategists comment that it’s a bad sign for any politician, after giving a high-profile speech, if people wonder whether you still have a future in politics. Probably not a very successful speech…  Out of pure self interest, though, I hope she stays in politics and in the news for a long time to come…  🙂

As for the reasons?  I’m sure, we will find out soon what prompted this erratic behavior, whether it be a multi-million-dollar book deal, or a radio/TV show, or a brewing scandal.  We’ll hear about it, believe me…  over and over and over again…

Because there’s just no end to the  ‘Sarah Freak Show’ …..   🙂

Sarah Palin: An Even Bigger Moron Than We Thought?

cask1bxkcaxbkdk9caa3a0r9calyl5ctcac77kgkcazjzi4fcawx9y95cai36h3pcap4tbz5calb7s4icaalkgi4ca01ux1icaq0nopucakl3phgca2gcikfcarbeodgca8251hdcaupn1au1
Moron? — You betcha! Also.

So, I was driving through a pretty much Republican neighborhood with McCain/Palin yard signs left and right when I drove by one that at first looked the same as the others, but then I almost hit my breaks, and thought I didn’t see right.  Don’t you know, they had cut in half a regular McCain yard sign and put the bottom (PALIN) half on top and stapled it together somehow.

I thought ‘You’ve got to be kidding me!’  Well, by that time I had passed the house I was looking for, so I ended up turning around by pulling into their driveway and looked straight at the back of their minivan sporting a hateful religious bumper sticker.  I guess for the ‘Religious Right’ it was always Palin/McCain, once he picked her.  Sarah is just one of them.  I can imagine droves of them now praying for the souls of the misguided Obama supporters.

AND THAT SHOULD SCARE THE LIVING DAYLIGHT OUT OF EVERYBODY ELSE, EVEN ‘NORMAL’ REPUBLICANS!

….. Because that woman could have been within one inch of the presidency.  As we already know and has been documented extensively, she is completely unqualified for the position she was seeking and Thank God, a lot of people not only expressed that openly, but also took it under consideration when voting.  But that a person who lacks basic understanding of civics, geography, history, ….. Heck, everything, can even come close to the presidency, is truly unbelievable.

Now, of course, as with every losing campaign, we see a lot of finger pointing and it will be an ongoing soap opera for a while.  Among the stories coming out now, which had been kept under wraps until after the election, just a few examples that tell you everything you need to know about her ‘intellectual curiosity.’

Evidently, she was not aware that Africa is a continent but thought it was a country, and didn’t know the countries belonging to North America (Canada, US, Mexico), which are signatories to NAFTA (a major campaign issue).

Further, it was leaked that the $150,000 hockey mom actually ended up spending thousands more than we already knew about.  One angry McCain aide’s characterization:

‘WASILLA HILLBILLIES LOOTING NEIMAN MARCUS FROM COAST TO COAST.’

At this point, most everybody (besides the ‘Religious Right’) just wants her to disappear and not come back.  Sorry, lady, you only get one chance to make a first impression.  And frankly, we’re not impressed.

Of course, the much larger point reflects on the total recklessness of the McCain campaign and the candidate himself for picking this complete farce of a VP candidate, obviously without vetting her.  For somebody whose motto was ‘Country First,’ he certainly didn’t do it when he picked her.  Quite a scary situation, really, if you think about it!

Sarah Palin: An Embarrassment To Women

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” — Abraham Lincoln

 

 

Sarah Palin has turned out to be a complete embarrassment to women.  And John McCain has disqualified himself from holding the highest office in the land the moment he picked this complete farce of a VP nominee.  With this reckless act he has done more damage to the women’s cause than anybody else in recent history.  We all should feel especially sorry for Republican women.

JOHN, COULDN’T YOU HAVE FOUND A WOMAN JUST A LITTLE LESS EMBARRASSING AND JUST A LITTLE SMARTER?

Sarah, sweetheart, winking at the audience like a cocktail waitress does not make you a serious contender for the vice presidency.  I cannot even imagine a Hillary Clinton, Kay Bailey Hutchison or Olympia Snowe trying to wink themselves to being taken seriously.  We women have come too far and had to fight too hard to have you turn us back in an instant.  What in the world are you thinking?  And you call yourself a feminist?  I think not!  Your extreme and radical views on issue after issue stand opposite to everything most of us believe in.  We want to move forward, not backward!  It’s surprising that you don’t seem to be very interested in the world around you as your answers in your now infamous interviews indicate.  Besides memorized keyword answers, there was nothing usable coming from your mouth when asked on a subject you evidently did not prepare for, or when faced with a follow-up question.  And that includes such softball questions like ‘Which Supreme Court case do you disagree with?’ and ‘Which publications do you read?’  Come on, Sarah, not even the ‘Star’ at the checkout counter?  Sometimes your answers are borderline ridiculous.

IT’S JUST NOT THAT ATTRACTIVE LOOKING LIKE AN UNSOPHISTICATED NUTJOB!

As someone with a major in journalism and having been a sportscaster, it is interesting that you seem to have problems putting words in proper order, and between your general gibberish and the ‘you betcha,’ ‘doggone it’ and misplaced ‘also,’ I’m not sure whether this is all just an act to appeal to your favorite guy ‘Joe Six-Pack,’ or whether it is indeed another sign that there’s not much up there between your ears?  But even for people like myself, whose native language is something other than English, it’s actually quite embarrassing to see somebody on the national political stage who looks so doggone uneducated.  Also, it is ‘nuclear,’ not ‘nucular.’  We’ve had to deal with another idiot for eight years who also had problems with pronunciation and embarrassed himself and by extension all of us on a daily basis.  We just don’t want that anymore.  Believe it or not, we want a president and vice president who are just a little smarter than we are.  And you simply don’t fit the bill.  While appealing to a certain fragment of society, you turn off most everybody else, especially women, who, so we were told, you were supposed to attract to your ticket.

SARAH, WE’RE JUST NOT THAT MUCH INTO YOU!

Sweetheart, when you accuse Barack Obama of hanging out with terrorists and having radical associates without any truth to either of these claims, why don’t you include your own and John McCain’s questionable and much more important associations?  If you don’t know what I’m talking about, let me help you out with a few suggestions.  When bringing up Rev. Wright, why don’t you mention your own pastor (Muthee) who is a witch doctor and has prayed over you to, among other things, protect you from witchcraft.  When mentioning Bill Ayers, why don’t you mention John McCain’s friendship with G. Gordon Liddy who is a convicted felon and was one of the main operatives during Watergate and made many quite outrageous statements over the years (‘If the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms insists upon a firefight, give them a firefight.  Just remember, they’re wearing flak jackets and you’re better off shooting for the head.’ – G. Gordon Liddy advising Branch Davidians how to defend themselves from ATF agents during a radio show.)  Domestic terrorist sympathizer?  Or how about John McCain sitting on the board of the ‘US Council for World Freedom’ for several years?  An organization which was linked to former Nazi collaborators and ultra-right-wing death squads in Central America, and a meeting place of unsavory characters, extremists, racists and anti-Semites?  Was John hanging out with radicals?

GUILT BY ASSOCIATION IS A TWO-WAY STREET! 

When calling Barack Obama unpatriotic, why don’t you explain your husband’s and your own relationship with the Alaskan Independence Party?  Your husband was a member for seven years and you sent a videotaped message to one of their meetings ‘Keep up the good work!’ as late as six months ago.  The ‘good work’ they are involved in and you apparently approve of is trying to secede from the United States.  Sarah, are you unpatriotic?  What about John McCain’s involvement in the ‘Keating Five’?  I’m sure many older people will remember that scandal very well because they lost a lot of money.

ARE YOU PATRIOTIC, SARAH?

And while you’re at it, please let us know why you think the Iraq war is a task from God?  How do you know?  Has he told you that?  We know that George Bush has a direct line to God, because we read about it in Bob Woodward’s book ‘God told me to invade Iraq’ – George Bush.  So, were you on a conference call with George and God?  And if so, what else did he tell you?  Just checking.

Oh, I forgot:  MAVERICK.

McCain/Palin Rallies: A Gathering Of Racists, Fascists And Nutjobs?

So, I was watching a very interesting documentary about the history of the KKK on the History Channel the other night and then I thought I saw a continuation of it at several McCain/Palin rallies the next day.  I think you can tell a lot about a person’s character and the way he is running his campaign simply by looking at and listening to the people who are supporting him.

MCCAIN SUPPORTERS:  HATEFUL AND NEGATIVE

At an Obama rally, you find a very diverse audience of people who are cheerful, hopeful, and the atmosphere is filled with good vibes.  I have to say now, after watching a few McCain/Palin rallies over the past few days, they seem to be filled with Hate-Mongers, racists, fascists and nutjobs, and that says a lot about the character of the people attracting this mob.  Of course, hateful statements being made by supporters is nothing new for McCain/Palin.  I remember when during the primaries, answering questions at a town hall meeting, a woman got up and asked McCain ‘What are we going to do about the b**ch,’ referring to Hillary Clinton and instead of rejecting this disrespectful question, John McCain just smiled.

JOHN, THAT’S NOT VERY ‘HONORABLE’!

Now you have McCain and Palin as ‘Hate-Mongers-in-Chief,’ and it’s not a pretty picture.  From people calling Barack Obama a ‘terrorist,’ to shouting ‘treason’ and ‘kill him,’ to show casing a sheriff in full uniform in Clearwater, FL using hateful rhetoric, it certainly shows the true character of the two people on the Republican ticket for everybody to see.  And the silence of these two candidates in the face of these comments is deafening.  When watching this idiot in uniform, I was thinking back to the KKK documentary which showed clearly that the KKK could operate with impunity because they were openly supported by law enforcement.  Some of the officers were not only sympathizers but active members of the KKK.  Scary stuff!

THE KKK IS ALIVE AND WELL AND REARS ITS UGLY HEAD AT MCCAIN/PALIN RALLIES!

Another incident that happened at one of the rallies raising more than just eyebrows, was the disrespectful way reporters, who were there simply to cover the event, were treated.  Not only were they prohibited from asking Palin any questions (gee, I wonder why), but they were greeted by hostile demeanor, threats and racially charged comments (‘Sit down, boy’ – one KKK rally participant to a black media person).  This is of course a reflection of the way McCain/Palin are inciting this hate with their stump speeches and we all should soundly reject it.  I’m sitting here looking at all this, asking myself

WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

Message to media:  Stop covering McCain/Palin events completely until you receive the respect you deserve, and access to Palin to ask her questions like ‘How does it feel to be a Hate-Monger, and how does that square with you being a ‘Christian’? ‘

Sarah Palin And Michele Bachmann, Two Certified Morons

‘We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very pro-American areas of this great nation.’ — Sarah Palin in North Carolina.

Michele Bachmann, 6th District, Minnesota, suggested on a national TV show that Barack Obama might hold ‘anti-American views’ and wanted members of Congress investigated to see whether they are ‘pro-American’ or ‘anti-American.’

I guess the pro-American areas are the rural red states with small towns and the Republicans residing there which amount to, let’s be generous here, about 30% of the population.  And then the rest of us, the vast majority, are ‘anti-American, terrorist-loving, America-hating, socialists.’  Well, all right then.

Do we live in ‘Stupidistan?’  And is that located in the pro-American or the anti-American part of America?   🙂
