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.



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.



Palin and Gay Marriage

From a CNN Ticker article, Sarah Palin recently voiced her disagreement with John McCain on how best to deal with the issue of gay marriage.  To Palin, marriage is a sacred institution that we must secure for the benefit of America.  Well if that’s a shocker from someone who doesn’t understand that a footprint of a man in a dinosaur track might actually mean man might have co-existed with dinosaurs.  When one has such a narrow view of what the new ideas of “family” are, this including adoption or artificial pregnancy methods for homosexual couples, it’s no wonder that her stance is so far right.

The real issue in this statement, is on how much she continues to pull away from her running mate.  I guess no one explained to her yet that a VP candidate is there to support the policies and stances laid out by the current campaign.  Even though you may disagree, airing out your grievances on national news fronts probably makes you look a bit naive and a bit politically immature.



Baby Named Sarah McCain Palin…

I think this is idiotic father should have his sanity called into question.  This is right up there with tattooing a profanity on this young girl’s forehead.  This act as a “sign of support for the McCain campaign” is beyond moronic.

I just hope that as the girl grows up and realized how awkward the name is, that she is allowed to rip off his eyebrows with Duct Tape on her birthday.



McCain and Palin sit down with Sean Hannity

Now I could really go off on Sean Hannity and his inability to even remotely pretend that he was a real journalist, but I think this extremely pathetic attempt at an interview speaks volumes for FoxNews and demographic McCain/Palin want to reach.

My first reaction was at amazing revalation, that many of us suspected, in which John McCain admits in so many words that he and Sarah Palin aren’t very good at communicating.  When asked if they critique each other, he says no.  His strategy is “two words–have fun.”  To that I say, I hope they are having their fun now, because while they polish their one liners and time those winks for more effective wpm (winks per minute) the American people are cringing in fear for their futures.  Strapped citizens are trying to kill themselves because they aren’t finding an answer from their representatives, and McCain/Palin just want to have fun.

The next point was even more amazing to me.  John McCain brings up a point that many special needs children, many of who are autistic, come to the debates and speeches.  McCain wants to give Sarah Palin the task of “finding the cause and cure” for autism, to which he states she is “uniquely qualified.”  Excuse me!?! How is Sarah Palin qualified to find the cure for autism?  Is her expertise in neurological science now?  I thought it was energy?  I guess if you think you can tackle all the worlds problems at once, why can’t your VP with a journalism degree be one of the experts in finding a cure for autism?  There has been much research to suggest a connection between stem cell mutation and autism, so since Sarah Palin objects to stem cell research, does that mean we are back to looking for a cure that she approves of?

Next point energy.  To explain their past differences, Palin states that we need an “all of the above” solution to our energy future.  The funny thing is that Palin and the GOP have often resisted the need for alternative fuels.  What I love is how they can easily cherry pick international examples for societies that have made great strives in energy efficiency.  But didn’t their answer still seem rather vague and more about “drilling” for buzz words and not providing a strategy.

Ugh.  Moose hunting is fun.

Part 2, nothing new here.  McCain continues making the same slips on Obama and foreign policy.  Remember Kosovo?  McCain criticized the air raids ordered by the Bush regime for bombing from high altitudes and hitting non-combat targets.  Palin then adds that Obama has a “gross misunderstanding” of Afghanistan.  I have the feeling Palin still doesn’t know they aren’t our neighbors.  McCain then twists his no vote against funding to be against withdrawal and not against the troops, but that logic is flawed.  A vote against is a vote against.  I don’t want to talk about their broken record of economic policies and their critique of Obama.  Palin goes off on not understanding where Obama plans to get the money for his new spending plans.  I hate to tell them but you can find it on the “Internets.”  McCain then lies again about Obama’s record.

Part 3, almost Ayers.

Once again the lap dog asks the attack dog what more they need to know about the Ayers/Obama relationship.  The truth is that their relationship is no more influential than many of the more atrocious relationships of McCain and Palin.  If this is about judgment and being candid, aren’t the GOP guilty of their own sins?

Palin needed to look McCain in the eye, but since he hasn’t been in Alaska in years, how did she do that in accepting his choice for VP?  More stories from the north.  I wonder what letters she saw in his eyes?  FTL?

Hannity spews some poll numbers that are horribly underrepresented.  By Hannity’s count they are only down by 2 or 3 points.  The fact is that they were down by nearly double digits in most of the polls.  I guess math isn’t their strong suit either. Of course Hannity has an honorary degree given to him by Jerry Fallwell, seeing as how Hannity has always been described as an “indifferent student.”  Learning makes my brain parts hurt!

All I can say that for Hannity to stage this “infomercial” for the McCain campaign is a show of a lack of professionalism and just how inauthentic Hannity truly is.  There were no real questions asked.  Hannity set the questions up on a silver platter for McCain/Palin to hit out of the park like a coach prepping the Tee-ball team.  Granted most of the people who watch this “show” are already sold on the GOP and will buy any line that comes out of the conservative right’s mouth.  If you haven’t seen Hannity get his lies thrown back at him, You Tube it.  How many days left until Nov. 4?
