#this picture just makes me feel tired and glum
I feel like even my ironic love of Sarah Palin is getting more and more precarious. It’s hard to be amused by someone so hateful.
’I’m not saying that everyone should boycott chick-fil-a for gay marriage but for her to purposely post a picture of her there and say “to support a great business” is disrespectful, unnecessary and she looks like a fucking prick.’
- That pretty much sums it up.
A pox on Palin and her constant in-your-face hate and rage smiles:
It’s official: Sarah Palin is “America’s Top Dickhead”
A pox on Palin and her constant in-your-face hate and rage smiles. Instead of calling her “Governor” (as if she completed that job!), she should be given a new title:
Princess Dickhead of the Far North
Our Lady of Perpetual Dickheadedness
Lady Dickhead of Methville
Honorable Dickhead of the Windswept Tundra
The Honorable Dickhead of Freedumb
Dickhead of Quitterville, Esq.
Miss Dickhead for ‘Merica
The Former Half-term Dickhead of Quit
I don’t know why anyone would eat chicken soaked in pickle juice anyway. It sounds terrible.

McCain: when I said Palin was the “better candidate,” I didn’t mean better than Mitt Romney
McCain wants us to know that when he said earlier today that he chose Palin “because we thought that Sarah Palin was the better candidate. Why did we not take [Tim] Pawlenty, why did we not take any of the other 10 other people. Why didn’t I? Because we had a better candidate, the same way with all the others. … Come on, why? That’s a stupid question.”
He believes those words, of his, were taken “out of context.” So McCain felt the need to add more words, to qualify or temper the earlier words:
“Some in the media have chosen to take my answer today, in response to the question of why I did not select Governor Romney as my vice presidential nominee, out of context. I selected Sarah Palin because she was the best fit for my campaign, and my decision had nothing to do with the bogus tax return attacks currently being waged by the Obama campaign. I have the highest respect for Governor Romney and his record of public service, and he will make an outstanding president.”
So we went from “better candidate” to “best fit for my campaign” in a few short hours. That’s what you call Straight Talk!

Romney’s doing a bus tour: name Mitt’s bus! →
#small towns / rural communities
Taegan Goddard reports on a bus tour that Romney’s planning:
The Washington Post reports Mitt Romney “is trying to seize momentum with a five-day bus tour through small towns across six battleground states.”
And how excited is Mark Halperin? THIS EXCITED:
[…] Mark Halperin: “Interesting thing about Romney’s just-announced battleground state bus trip: (1) It includes Michigan; if Romney can put his father’s home state in play, it is an Electoral College game changer; (2) all of these states have small towns and rural areas that are not the President’s electoral strength and where Romney can gain an advantage if he runs up the kinds of margins George W. Bush did in 2004; and (3) watch to see if this trip draws network correspondents and/or big-foot print reporters, who, on most every day for the last several months, have been absent from the Romney roadshow. (4) notice what family members and surrogates join the journey and what roles they are assigned.”
I have my own list of things I wonder about this bus tour:
- Will Romney be allowed to interact, one on one, with people who don’t make millions of dollars? That usually doesn’t go well.
- If he is allowed to interact, unsupervised, will reporters be barred from filming it?
- Halperin is excited about Romney’s potential in small towns and rural communities — in other words, does that mean we should expect some low level dog-whistling and talk of Kenyan births?
- What new way can Mitt screw up the presentation of pastries? He’s already embarrassed himself with cookies and donuts.
- Will there be a dog be strapped to the roof of this bus?
- Will local teachers, firefighters and cops turn out to cheer Romney’s plans for them?
- Will Mitt will share his Mormon-based religious beliefs with the base? (KIDDING! Of course he won’t)
- Will Mitt and Marie Antoinette fly to each small town ahead of the tour bus, a la Palin? If not, will the underpaid housekeepers on staff be expected to ride along as well?
- What uber-patriotic, gun and Jesus loving, semi-fascist name will the tour bus be given?
We should name Romney’s bus. There was the hilarious “Country First” on McCain’s bus. And Palin, in her typically FU Haterz! fashion, named hers “One Nation” (I don’t think anyone ever found out the purpose of that tour). So maybe Romney’s could be “Let poor people buy their own money” or “Apocalypse Now.”

#risky or unprepared
Mitt Romney’s mantra: Avoid John McCain’s mistakes (PALIN!) – Many of the current strategy discussions are centered on not falling into the traps McCain did: looking wobbly as a leader and weak on the economy in the final weeks of the campaign. The private discussions include ruling out any vice presidential possibilities who could be seen as even remotely risky or unprepared; wrapping the entire campaign around economic issues, knowing this topic alone will swing undecided voters in the final days; and, slowly but steadily, building up Romney as a safe and competent alternative to President Barack Obama. McCain, according to Romney advisers, blew it on all three scores. And of the three, the most conscious effort by Romney’s team to do things differently will be in the V.P. selection process. One Republican official familiar with the campaign’s thinking said it will be designed to produce a pick who is safe and, by design, unexciting – a deliberate anti-Palin. The prized pick, said this official: an “incredibly boring white guy.” – POLITICO

Did Bristol Palin get opposite-sex married yet?
The self-awareness gene is completely missing in this one. Bristol and her ghost writer explain why Tawd Palin is a superior father to President Obama. Hilarious commentary from TBogg:
Backseat Bristol Palin has once again allowed her mom to use her name to dictate some word shrapnel to the person who writes both Bristol’s blog as well as Sarah Facebook Screech Wall. […] this person…wrote a thing about that Oblamer black fella who used his terrorist pals to deny Sarah Palin, Queen of the North, her rightful place on the Iron Throne, and how he is cool with non-opposite marriage now because his daughters have friends with gay baby-momma + other gay baby-momma for “parents”:
While it’s great to listen to your kids’ ideas, there’s also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would’ve been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that’s not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage. Or that – as great as her friends may be – we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.
[…] Anyway, it’s too bad that Malia & Sasha Obama don’t have a “real” (white) father, like Todd Palin, with his stern rules about dating like “Be in by midnight”, “Don’t forget to bring me home some beer” and “Spitters are quitters”.
An exhausted nation pleads with all the Half-term-Quitter-Snowbilly-Grifters of the Far North: STFU.
#john f--king mccain
JOHN MCCAIN STILL (hilariously / sadly?) trying to convince us he chose Palin in 2008 because of her ‘qualifications’ — Speaking about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney selecting of a vice presidential running mate, McCain said on ABC’s “This Week” that the “primary, absolute, most important aspect is if something happened to him, would that person be well qualified to take that place?” “I happen to believe that was the … primary factor on my decision in 2008,” McCain said, “and I know it will be Mitt’s.” – POLITICO
Seriously. Just STFU, McCain.
