Obama to McCain: “Say It To My Face”

leave a comment »

Despite whipping up his rallies and gatherings into a steaming froth over the past several days, despite promising at one of his rallies that he was going to “Take the gloves off” on Tuesday night, despite the fact that he was back out on the campaign trail with his pitbull today making claims about “palling around with terrorists”,  John McCain seems to lack the testicular fortitude to look Barack Obama in the eye and call him a terrorist.

Media Still Full-On In The Tank For McCain

with 2 comments

These great graphs come courtesy of Media Matters and document both air time and number of clips shown on Fox “News” and all other networks over the past couple of weeks. Notice anything in particular? Maybe that not only does Fox “News”, which is to be expected, but all other media organizations give hella more time to the GOP lairs than to the Democrats trying to save this country from George Bush’s mess.

Sarah Palin Blew the ABC Interview. Want Proof?

leave a comment »

Team McCain knows she choked. Want to know how I know? Her next scheduled interview is with Sean Hannity of Fox “News” (try not to laugh). Talk about being sent down to the bush leagues. Good God!

The McCain camp thinks her performance was so wobbly that the only press they believe she can handle is fielding softballs from a shit chucking ape like Sean Hannity!

Sean fucking Hannity? Are you kidding me?

You know that bitch done stepped in it if they’re down-grading her to Hannity. By his own admission Hannity’s not even a real journalist. He calls himself a “commentator”. Seriously, if she blows that one what the fuck is next, the Home Shopping Network? Tell us how you’d cut the budget while looking fabulous in these beautiful cubic zirconiums.

Dear readers, the proof is in the pudding— and if the prom queen had seriously done well on ABC, you’d see her doing the Sunday talk shows this weekend. But you won’t. ‘Cuz she sucks.

Some fucking pitbull this chick turned out to be.

More Shit Sarah Palin is Wrong About.

leave a comment »

Yeah, she’s doesn’t know what the Bush Doctrine is. Of course she doesn’t, she’s completely unqualified for the job. But when asked if she’s ever met a foreign head of state she said, “I have not. And if you go back and ask that question of many Vice Presidents they may have the same answer.”

Actually, that’s bullshit. Don’t believe me? Go back in history and ask that question of “many” Vice Presidents. Here’s a run down of all the ones who could answer (the rest are dead):

  1. Tricky Dick Cheney— former Secretary of Defense and White House Chief of Staff. Met Foreign heads of State.
  2. Al Gore— long serving U.S. Senator. Met many foreign heads of State.
  3. George H.W. Bush— former U.S. Ambassador to China and head of the CIA. Likewise met many foreign heads of State.
  4. Dan Quayle. Check. Dan fucking Quayle, are you kidding me?! Nope. He’d met ’em too.
  5. Walter Mondale. Yup, him too.

Well, that’s it. The rest are dead. But going back more than 30 years, we’ve never had a VP who hadn’t done the deed, shaken the hand, taken the bow, exchanged the lei. It’s just Sarah. But c’mon let’s face it, the truth ain’t her strong suit anyway.

Holy Crap! Palin Doesn’t Know What the Bush Doctrine Is!

leave a comment »

From ABC News by way of the Huff Post

Asked by ABC News’ Charlie Gibson whether she supported the Bush Doctrine, Palin stared blankly for a moment before turning the question back on Gibson. “In what respect?”

The ABC anchor responded, “Well, what do you interpret it to be?” clearly testing her knowledge of the policy that has been in place since September 2002, before the Iraq war.

Palin couldn’t say, offering an answer that didn’t even mention preemption. 

I can’t fucking believe it. This woman believes herself to be qualified to run the world and she is unaware of the guiding principle of this nation’s foreign policy for the past seven years?!

Moreover, that principle was design and instigated by the head of her own party, G.W. Bush

Gimme a fucking break.

Gibson let her off way too easy.

Maureen Dowd’s List of Questions for Charlie Gibson

with one comment

After snowmobiling, walking some picturesque trails, and maybe visiting the school where she grew up, Charlie Gibson might actually ask Sarah Palin some questions. Maureen Dowd has a pretty nice list:

What kind of budget-cutter makes a show of getting rid of the state plane, then turns around and bills taxpayers for the travel of her husband and kids between Juneau and Wasilla and sticks the state with a per-diem tab to stay in her own home?

Why was Sarah for the Bridge to Nowhere before she was against the Bridge to Nowhere, and why was she for earmarks before she was against them? And doesn’t all this make her just as big a flip-flopper as John Kerry?

What kind of fiscal conservative raises taxes and increases budgets in both her jobs — as mayor and as governor?

When the phone rings at 3 a.m., will she call the Wasilla Assembly of God congregation and ask them to pray on a response, as she asked them to pray for a natural gas pipeline?

Does she really think Adam, Eve, Satan and the dinosaurs mingled on the earth 5,000 years ago?

Why put out a press release about her teenage daughter’s pregnancy and then spend the next few days attacking the press for covering that press release?

As Troopergate unfolds here — an inquiry into whether Palin inappropriately fired the commissioner of public safety for refusing to fire her ex-brother-in-law — it raises this question: Who else is on her enemies list and what might she do with the F.B.I.?

Does she want a federal ban on trans fat in restaurants and a ban on abortion and Harry Potter? And which books exactly would have landed on the literature bonfire if she had had her way with that Wasilla librarian?

Gibson Interview Turning Into Lovefest

leave a comment »

News comes today that “reformer“, Sarah Palin is going to escort Charlie Gibson around her hometown for two solid days later this week for their “interview” together.

See Sarah Speak on 9/11 and her “ideas” about keeping America Safe! See Sarah speak about her son’s deployment to Iraq! See her drive around a snowmobile with Charlie Gibson riding bitch!

Then, after cut-away footage of them walking through the woods (and maybe Sarah killing a moose!), they’ll sit down with some cocoa for these questions:

(1) Please tell us a series of tear-jerking stories about your decision to give birth to a Down Syndrome Child.

(2) Why are you so gosh darn popular?

(3) Isn’t it awesome that your are a reformer, with results that I will not require evidence thereof?

(4) How do you feel about Barack Obama not always wearing a flag-pin?

(5) Tell us about your oldest boy serving in Iraq?

(6) How do you stay in such good shape?

(7) Tell us about the time you saved your family from a feral rampaging Moose with just an SUV, an AK-47 and mortar?

(8) Do you find my bluejeans pleasing? It shows that I’m just your average $10 million a year journalist in a staged Alaskan interview.
