Palin sorta like the 4 Yorkshire Men

Sarah Palin began to defend her clothing budget by stating that they will be donated to charity at the end of the campaign.  She then tried to paint herself as a frugal spender by stating how she yearned to go shopping at the consignment shop back in Alaska.  When I took all of the “one ups-man-ship” into consideration, I was reminded of a skit by Monty Python’s Flying Circus entitled the Four Yorkshiremen.

In the skit each man tries to retell how horribly unbearable their childhood was until the conversation goes from tragic to absurd.  Frankly, this campaign seems to doing the same thing.  Here’s the clip for your enjoyment:

Palin wrong on VP duties

When asked by a third grade student, “What does the Vice President do?”  Sarah Palin responded:

[T]hey’re in charge of the U.S. Senate so if they want to they can really get in there with the senators and make a lot of good policy changes that will make life better for Brandon and his family and his classroom.

Once again Gov. Palin you are quite wrong.  Or at least over stating things.  As VP you break ties in the Senate.  You don’t get to be a legislator.  You shouldn’t be influencing the work done on the floor any more than you should be telling the Supreme Court how you think the rulings should go for the day.  If you can’t understand the most basic of your Constitutionally restricted tasks, please pack up the bus and head back to Alaska.  You aren’t ready for this and the more you try to pretend the more America loses its ability to function in the world.



Protesting for dummies

CNN reported on protesters in Colorado who jumped in front of the motorcade of Sarah Palin.  Most of those who have read my blog might think I would be supporting this anit-Palin action, but they would be wrong.  What these overzealous morons did is no better than any other protesters from the McCain side.  It’s ok to get your message out, but to threaten a candidate is wrong, wholly wrong.

These pathetic losers should be charged and made to realize just how idiotic their actions were.

So now we know just how unbelievably pathetic the McCain camp tactics really play to the public.



Now she’s trying the math tactic

Sarah Palin tried to attack Obama’s tax plan by stating that 40% of Obama’s 95% don’t pay taxes, so how can he lower their taxes?  By handing out tax credits in the form of a check, paid for by hard working American families, small businesses, and the Joe the Plumbers.  (Wait, I thought she didn’t like using Joe as a political ploy?  Guess her writers still think he’s working.)

Let me give some math related advice.  If you apply factor X to situation Y and the resulting trend is Znegative, to obtain a Zpositive result you may need to stop applying factor X.  This is especially true if your audience P expresses their disgust with your factor X.

By the way Gov. Palin, continuing to press the socialist edge while you handed out more private sector and government money to the tax payers in your state than any other state, might just qualify you for the socialist for beginners discussion list.



Rick Davis dismisses Powell endorsement

On MSNBC’s Morning Joe, McCain campaign advisor Rick Davis shrugged off the Colin Powell endorsement of Sen. Obama with little more than a “I don’t care.”  To quote Davis:

Look, I doubt if Colin Powell is equipped to do a whole lot of political prognostication. That’s what you guys do, right?

It’s funny that the campaign can respect an individual’s opinion when it benefits them, but when it swings the other way that person immediately becomes less than credible.  Davis even went so far as to say that Powell’s description of the McCain tactics as of late as demagoguery;

John McCain tried to point out how people should be informed about Barack Obama’s background, including his relationships with domestic terrorists like William Ayers. People are going to form these judgments. It’s great fodder for us to debate every day. I think it’s fun

I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Davis finds attacking his opposition with unethical ploys as “fun.”  It’s ok to endanger a political figure by inciting already tense citizens with calls of terrorism and baby-killing.  The RNC should be much more mindful of how they throw around the “socialist” tag when referring to Obama.  For most Americans there isn’t too much of a gap between being socialist and being a communist.  In fact, for most there is no difference.  To those few, either case makes them un-American.

Davis might want to take a step back from his conservative soap-box and work on using some tactics other than the most recent childish theatrics.   I think this recent turn  has exhibited that  too much unchecked defense truly becomes offensive.  I wonder if Rick hand counts his take away money from his interesting investment histories?  I heard there’s alot of cocaine on those bills.  That may explain how touchy he is as of late.  Maybe it’s just because his advice is equaling negative numbers.

The real thing that makes me angry is how flippant Rick Davis can be on Gen. Powell’s observations.  Why should anyone believe what Rick Davis has to say on any issue?  What’s his experience?
