    I believe that’s about John McCain. I find it exceptionally difficult to believe women would vote for some ahole that called his wife a c#@nt, instead of the pickaninny. That is the characterization the ahole chose in both cases. This is Rovian. Whatever it takes.

    If you had brains, the alleged Temple is actually more like a theater, but, you know, what the hey, we can lie one way or another. W had columns in the background. Pat Buchanon says the VP nominee is a beauty queen.

    Andrea Mitchell says John McCain is a foreign policy guru. Apparently she didn’t get the deal on Georgia. Moron. Is she not a fucking moron? Holy crap?

    Nope. I was seeing (in what I now understand was just a banner ad!) a statue located somewhere in Cambodia, of a nude female (with party hats!) who seems to be exploring her womanhood.

    Going back there now, the happy stone goddess is gone, and there is a much more prosaic ad, and the content part of the site says “error 404”.

    But – it was good stuff for a minute there!

    There’s your weasel! A dead one, anyhow.

    I get the impression she has a healthy, well developed sense of irony, which i hope they figure out how to keep in play and not hide in the blind trust candidates seems to put their sense of humor into.

    Sorry, I think she’s a joke. I think McCadaver is Bush warmed over. Nobody needs this shit anymore.

    I thought in 2004 that my fellow Americans couldn’t possibly be that stupid. I knew for a fact Kenneth Blackwell would steal votes in Cuyahoga County. Why that asshole isn’t in jail, well that’s beyomd me.

    Of course she’s not qualified. But I wouldn’t sneer too much. Wait until they finish packaging her. “I’m pro-choice. I chose to have my Down Syndrome baby” After thinking a little about it, I still agree Palin is a cynical choice but I’d never sell Rove and the Republican slime machine short. However, I don’t think they’re going after the Hillary hold outs. Their track record shows that they chase electoral votes and they have a demographic in particular states they are chasing. Maybe I’m over thinking it but I’m going to worry until the morning of November 5 and I see Obama’s name on top.

    I learn that Palin is a member of the Assemblies of God, which is (cue ominous thunder-rumble) the church John Ashcroft is a lay minister in. Think Pentecostal-lite, not that the AGs i know would appreciate the shorthand. (They call themselves AGs, nothing to do with their famous son who was Bush’s first AG.)

    Michael, is it slime, or are there actually lots of people who worry about abortion without even wondering what Karl Rrrrrrove thinks? And maybe McCain wants their votes, and wants them to know he supports their perspective.

    And if you’re pro-choice, you get clarity like with no other veep he coulda tapped (see entry under Romney, flip-flops). No smoke blown, no slime, just a . . . [koff] choice. You’ll vote for Obama, not against Palin. And i’m not voting against Obama, but i know most of my colleagues in church and social work circles and y’all here will insist that’s what i did.

    Yet more McCain hypocrisy. If Obama didn’t have enough experience to be Commander In Chief, how does Gov. Palin? McCain is still running the “He’s too inexperienced” ad here in New Mexico. So Obama is too inexperienced and elitist. Hmm.

    World Assemblies of God Fellowship is a cult. I say this as member of what the Republican Party has called a “demonic cult”. You know, Catholics. I thought it would be hilarious if McCain chose the Holy Underpants. This woman believes every criminal has a right to an AK until some jack-booted thug from ATF pries it from her cold dead hands. She is Jeanne Schmidt, but better looking, or at least not zombified.

    The insult to women’s intelligence in general goes right along with the troglodyte’s comment on his own wife, however correct he may have been.

    But you know, the baby murderer, drill, drill, drill female vote is probably huge. These people also think home schooling is peachy keen. And the Constitution is flypaper we need to get rid of, because it doesn’t really let moral arbiters like her and W screw your lives over.

    And guess what. She supported the Bridge to Nowhere in 2006 before she thought it wasn’t such a good idea. How’s that ofr moving out from under the Feds?. Oh, and she said Hillary Clinton was an “insufferable whiner”. That ought to go over big time with disaffected voters. No joke, she is Camille Paglia with a lobotomy. But, you know, W knows Alaska is right next to Russia.

    I won’t vote for her but I damn sure would …never mind…but she was selected precisely to nab the Party Unity My Ass PUMAS.
    Karl Rove told Lieberman to take a hike…disappear, two days ago. This is Rove’s campaign, you better believe it.
    I thought Romney would emerge, then it looked more like Pawlenty…but then Rove springs this one on us.
    Promises are floating that they won’t diss her like the party dissed poor old dumb-fuck Dan Quayle.
    This pick is similar in the “what the hell?” department; has anybody seen Quayle weighing in with comment? No? Didn’t think so.

    Voters are spectacularly stupid. People believe W served in the Texas National Guard, even though he was criminally AWOL. And people believe John Kerry somehow staged getting shot and pulling his buddy out of the Mekong. What I’d like to know is what the hell is wrong with people?

    You know what fueled the Republican vitriol against Kerry? He exposed the patron saint when he investigated the patron saint:


    I believe Cheney was involved in that too. These people are sorry excuses for actual people. Lee Atwater took it all back when he was dying.

    What the hell does it mean when it’s a jest to say some psychopath like Karl Rove is controlling elections? I guess if you’re the moral equivalent of Enron, that’s all probably fine. Oil company executives eat salade nicoise with VP Elmer Fudd, and they take home 35 times the cash that rig workers clear. I’m sure they all get a big kick out of that, but I’d like to see the oil rig guys beat shit out of the Republicans..

    Caliban: I’ve learned today that Republicans are unashamedly pro-torture and, as the FDIC spirals into insolvency, we need to make sure the federal government gets behind the homeschooler notion that God himself handcrafted GW Bush from… a heavenly stool? I’ve also learned it was a good thing we “won” the Iraq war for the Chinese. What a day.
    I’m going to go register some people to vote tomorrow who have benefited from the Bush administration so much they’re suffering from ennui, and want to see Republicans rot in jails.

    The surge is fascinating. What it actually was is monster cash to warlords and Shia militias choosing not to fight, and US will abandon those guys like stink removing from shit, and all hell will break out. That’s McCain’s wisdom.

    McBane was slandered by Karl Rove in South Carolina in 20000. Apparently, he thinks those tactics are perfectly fine when Democratic candidates are targets. Maverick? Horseshit. High road campaigning? He’s a scumbag that was fine with Swift Boat. What a hero.

    Coozle: Did you know that the infamous SKM never said a word to his captors until it was proved to him that his family was in the same boat he was? If Americans really wanted to track down the 911 murderers, torturing the Saudi royal family might have been more effective. Fact is, top-down, these people are war criminals.

    They’re not just war criminals, they’re us. And they definitely don’t give a flying fuck about people who are fighting to preserve their right to shoot whichever human is handy when the meth jitters git em, eat white bread, or restrict Mexicans to highway labor. They just see everything in terms of the flow of money, and how best to free that up. Sometimes you have to use a rube. Sometimes you have to own a shitsack parading around as a cowboy. But a lot of the time, you just sit back and watch while the whole fucking Potemkin village falls down.

    Do you support aholes with am agenda that torture people and claim it’s to protect you? Do people understand the fact that the New American Centurions tried to talk Clinton into this shit, but he refused to have anything to do with it? There really is no excuse for immoral behavior, no matter what some tortured legalistic piece of shit like John Yoo might fabricate. That’s the kind of legal advice you get when you rely on Fundy diploma mills.

    But hey, it’s a republic. Each and every one of us is responsible for the inhuman and illegal behavior of these aholes. And they’ve invaded a country that was a key ally of Raygun, they’ve tortured people, they’ve screwed over Americans that needed health care for the $4billion a week, including wounded vets. There is basically no way in the English language to express or describe the moral turpitude of the current administration. And John McCain wants four more years.

    Know what? Bullshit. And the hockey mom thinks the Constitution guarantees a right to sell cop-killer ammo at “gun shows”. Great Murrican.

    Long national nightmare from which we all need to wake up. Stolen in 2000, stolen in 2004. Brownshirts lose this time. Assholes.

    You got your basic choice between that asshole hack that cut and pasted The DaVinci Code or Will Shakes, who was actually responsible, along with the catamite Kit Marlowe, for the Bible those anti-Christians like to beat. Me, I’ll take twangling:

    Be not afeard: the isle is full of noises,
    Sounds and sweet airs that give delight, and hurt not.
    Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
    Will hum about mine ears; and sometime voices,
    That, if I then had wak’d after long sleep,
    Will make me sleep again; and then, in dreaming,
    The clouds methought would open and show riches
    Ready to drop upon me, that, when I wak’d,
    I cried to dream again.

    My wife is a political science major, has followed politics all her life, thinks this year is the best yet, politically speaking. After listening to the talking heads, surfing the internet to find out Palin’s views on everything, she has come to this startling conclusion. McCain picked Palin because she is, get this, shorter than he is . . . even with her hairdo . . . and that is his guiding criteria. And i sincerely hope that he waits at least two weeks until he hits on Palin, his other guiding criteria.

    Nice to have The New Republic helping me make the case for the complexity of evangelicals.

    Free space on the Bingo sheet for those appalled by Palin: she is pro-“Intelligent Design” [acck, koff] in school classrooms. Biggest criticism i have of her so far; feel free to make it your own!

    On the other hand — from getreligion.org

    Queerty (motto: “Free of an agenda, except that gay one”) reports that she’s “relatively good on gay issues”:

    While she opposes gay marriage – as all the national contenders do – Palin’s frequently come out in support of her gay friends and insists she’s open to discussions on discrimination legislation. Palin told an Alaska newspaper that she’s “not out to judge” gay people. She went on to say that she believes “that honoring the family structure is that important,” and would thus oppose a gay marriage measure. She previously supported a 1998 bill to ban gay marriage.

    Despite her opposition to same-sex nuptials, Palin helped move Alaska toward a more inclusive frontier in 2006 when she blocked a bill that would have prohibited gay benefits in the state.

    Palin’s action on benefits for same-sex partners, Jeff, was essentially compelled by a decision of the state Supreme Court. According to this article, there is no evidence to suggest she has done anything to support gay rights. In fact, the article makes the point that, since taking office, her attention has focused almost entirely on oil and gas issues.

    Jeff, I went to the queerty site, and according to them, she’s no gay ally.

    You should hope that she does not have much of an impact on the race–when veep picks do, it’s usually a disastrous one, like Thomas Eagleton. She is doing what she is supposed to do–sealing the deal with social conservatives who were nervous about McCain. Getting the PUMA vote? No, only conservatives think that will happen. Conservatives mostly think women are dumb (as Caitlin Flanagan has said out loud), and that any interchangeable vagina will pull in female voters.
