McCain Shoves Woman in Wheelchair…

leave a comment »

…and other examples of compassionate conservatism can be found in a recent detailed article appearing in McClatchy Newspapers.

The comprehensive piece on McCain’s temper covers everything from calling his wife a cunt to temper tantrums at age 2 that were so intense he would pass out— it’s all here.

Other lowlights include calling Texas Republican John Cornyn a “chickenshit” and telling him “fuck you” (Cheney style), the idea of him being POTUS “sending a shiver down the spine” of many Republicans, and of course the McCain classic:

As McCain continued walking, Jane Duke Gaylor, the mother of another missing serviceman, approached the senator. Gaylor, in a wheelchair equipped with portable oxygen, stretched her arms toward McCain.

“McCain stopped, glared at her, raised his left arm ready to strike her, composed himself and pushed the wheelchair away from him,” according to Eleanor Apodaca, the sister of an Air Force captain missing since 1967.

Holy Crap! McCain 48%, Obama 45%

with 3 comments

File this under You’ll Never Go Broke Underestimating the Intelligence of The American People:

In what can only be described as a true sign of the Apocalypse, Richie Rich has over taken Barack Obama in the latest poll, found here.

What next? Some TV show where celebrity has-beens dance around on screen captures the attention of the nation and rockets to the top of the ratings? New Kids on the Block get back together and relese an album that not only sells, but is a hit? A totally unqualified former beauty queen becomes a heartbeat away from the presidency when a cynical old man picks her out of nowhere and puts her on a national ticket?

Oh yeah. Never mind.

McCain Camp “Clears Up” Walter Reed Controversy (Yeah, right)

leave a comment »

Remember the story about how the McCain camp couldn’t tell the difference between Walter Reed Medical Facility and Walter Reed Middle School in Hollywood?

Well, the controversy is settled. Turns out the McCain camp meant to put up a picture of some obscure junior high school during McCain’s acceptance speech.

Is this seriously the best they’ve got? How fucking stupid do they think we are?!

Here’s the bullshit:

“According to campaign spokesman Tucker Bounds, the campaign intended to showcase “images of Americana” during the Arizona senator’s remarks.

“The changing image-screen was linked to the American thematics of the speech and the public school was simply part of it,” Mr. Bounds said, adding that during the speech, Mr. McCain “called for public education reforms that empower parents and students before bureaucrats and labor unions.”

Uh-huh. By the way, it only took them two days to come up with this “truth“.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: the GOP’s strong suit always has been, and always will be, lying. They’ve clearly lost their gift.

I mean this lie is so bad I just gotta figure they don’t even give a shit anymore. They must just think the American people are so stupid (and who could blame ’em after they got away with the Palin pick?), that they can just say anything they want. Even that Obama wipes his ass with American flags. We’re stupid, we’ll fall for it. I mean most of us can only afford one house.

Country First my ass.

Update: The National Enquirer May Have It Right (Again)!

with one comment

Couple days back a story broke that hot and slutty VP choice Sarah Palin had an affair with one of her husband’s former business partners. McCain threatened big time, rich boy legal shit and pretended it was all nonsense. Now comes word that this “ex-business partner” has just filed an emergency motion to have his divorce records sealed! Yikes!

Skeletons much, bitch?

The drama we all loved for years has been canceled. “The Clintons” will no longer be seen on this channel so that we may bring you the never-ending escapades of America’s newest white-trash political family, “The Palins”— Teenage Pregnancy! Drunk Kids on the Loose! Naked Pictures! Mad Affairs! Rednecks Aplenty! The Trailer Park’s Never Been So Much Fun!

RNC Releases Ad Attacking Obama’s Stage (It’s all they got)

leave a comment »

Poor bastards. The prom queen is under fire for nude pics, adulterous affairs, a drunk knocked up daughter, and oh yeah, she’s not even close to being qualified! Oh well.

So what do those whining bitches at the GOP have in return? Obama’s stage sucked!

This from a group of people who can’t even tell the difference between Walter Reed Hospital and a Junoir High School.

Here’s their weak-ass ad. Watch once, puke, repeat.

McCain Camp Confuses Walter Reed Hospital with Jr. High School

leave a comment »

Remember that big green blob behind McCain’s head during his acceptance speech? It was a lawn. The front lawn of Walter Reed Junior High School in Hollywood California. Problem is, the jerkoffs in the McCain camp thought it was a picture of Walter Reed Army Medical Center— the spot that houses our wounded soldiers after they come back from Bush’s mess in the Middle East.

And they want to run the country? Plus, they got the nerve to complain about Obama’s stage?! Asshats.

As always, please ask yourself what the right-wing reaction would be if Barack Obama’s campaign confused the two. Anyone for this bullshit: “They don’t really support our troops! They don’t even know the difference between a Hollywood High School and our nation’s most important medical facility for wounded heroes!”

Did I mention the “asshat” part?

Sarah Palin’s Lover?

with one comment

By now you’re familiar with the National Enquirer story that Princess Palin has been foolin’ around. Well, here’s the guy the National Enquirer thinks has been banging the prom queen. His name is Brad Hanson and here are some basic stats on the man from Palmer, Alaska:

Re-elected October 2005, with current term ending October 2008.

Council Member Hanson was elected by the City of Palmer voters to serve in October of 2002 and re-elected October 2005. His current term ends in October 2008.

Is facial hair, like mandatory in the state of Alaska? We know Bristol’s baby daddy favors the look. If Palin is elected will we all be forced to give up our liberal abortions, have pregnant teenage daughters and ordered to get down with the chin pubes?

Barack Obama Sits Down with a Sexual Predator

with 2 comments

Forget naked pictures of Sarah Palin, stories of adultery, and pics of her drunk daughter. For something really salacious (and semi-sick) watch as Barack Obama sits down with a Fox “News” sexual predator for an “interview”.

For reasons only known to God, you can see a real-live whore chaser and adulterer who has an affinity for rubbing Greek food all over women’s vaginas not only act as though he deserves to be sitting with a historic figure like Barack Obama, but seems as smug as a guy with a dildo “shaped liked a cockup his butt.

Palin Had an Affair?

leave a comment »

In the wake of the national media’s ass kissing of the prom queen based on the fact that she can actually read a teleprompter! News comes from one of America’s most reliable information outlets, The National Enquirer, that Sarah Palin (the gift that just keeps on giving) had an affair with a business partner of her husband.

True? We’ll find out… BUT the National Enquirer did get it right on John Edwards AND Rush Limbaugh’s drug addiction, so who’s to say?

After that speech of hers and the absolute B.S. it contained (someone please show me where Obama said he will not go after terrorists and if he does all he wants to do is read them their rights?) and her accusations that he’s a total wimp for being a one-time community organizer while she rocks ‘cuz she fired her chef (in Republican circles that’s HUGE!) that woman forfeited the right to whine about lies.

Anyhow, right now things in her personal life are just too dramariffic to pay attention to her stack of lies about Obama.

One thing about Sarah Palin that is ABSOLUTELY TRUE is what her soon-to be-son-in-law had to say: They are a bunch of rednecks. Teen pregnancy, a sauced daughter, high school drop outs, naked pictures, adulterous affairs? How’d they ever fit all that into the trailer park?

GOP’s True Feelings: Palin is “Bullshit”

leave a comment »

Ah, the dreaded open mic— a device so insidious it knows no political bounds and can snare the best of ’em at anytime. Just ask Jesse Jackson

And now it has befallen one of the GOP’s biggest: Peggy Noonan, a top GOP pro, former speechwriter to Ronald Reagan, columnist for the Wall Street Journal and general all around Republican soldier has been caught on an open mic along with former McCain adviser and Time magazine columnist Mike Murphy letting their true feelings be known about John McCain’s pick for Vice President of the United States.

And it ain’t pretty.

On a day when Republicans have been making a concerted effort to snow the American people into thinking they’re all just wild about Palin this: “It’s Over.” said Noonan. “(McCain’s choice) is bullshit.”

Not wanting to be the only operative on the set to not stick his foot in his mouth, former McCain adviser Murphy let it be known that he thinks the choice of Palin is “gimmicky” and “cynical”

Of course yesterday was a different story for Murphy. Click here.


Chuck Todd: Mike Murphy, lots of free advice, we’ll see if Steve Schmidt and the boys were watching. We’ll find out on your blackberry. Tonight voters will get their chance to hear from Sarah Palin and she will get the chance to show voters she’s the right woman for the job Up next, one man who’s already convinced and he’ll us why Gov. Jon Huntsman. (cut away)
Peggy Noonan: Yeah.

Mike Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state governor world: Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. I mean, these guys — this is how you win a Texas race, just run it up. And it’s not gonna work. And —

PN: It’s over.

MM: Still McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.

CT: I also think the Palin pick is insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchinson, too.

PN: Saw Kay this morning.

CT: Yeah, she’s never looked comfortable about this —

MM: They’re all bummed out.

CT: Yeah, I mean is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?

PN: The most qualified? No! I think they went for this — excuse me– political bullshit about narratives —

CT: Yeah they went to a narrative.

MM: I totally agree.

PN: Every time the Republicans do that, because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at, they blow it.

MM: You know what’s really the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.

CT: This is cynical, and as you called it, gimmicky.

MM: Yeah.


But you know, when the cameras are on “She great… and has lots of executive experience.”

Sean Hannity is a Lying Douche

with 2 comments

Here’s a chunk a video of Hannity doing what he does best— lying. This asshat has the sack to claim that, “nobody ever went after Chelsea.

Even by Fox “News” standards this is brazen. And that’s saying something.

Apparently Hannity has forgotten his red-faced tirade against Al Franken, when early in the first Bush term Franken had the nerve to bring up draft dodger Rush Limbaugh’s crude joke about Chelsea being the family dog. People literally had to hold Hannity back— he was so enraged and totally consumed by his semi-homoerotic defense of Limbaugh (claiming the joke was not Limbaugh’s fault).

Moreover, Hannity, who is paid millions of dollars a year by Fox “News” to be some sort of political mouth-piece seems to be unfamiliar with the record of his own party’s nominee, John McCain, who used to joke that,” Chelsea was so ugly because Janet Reno was her father.”

These are the comments the Republicans were making about a 13-year-old girl. But Hannity “doesn’t remember” any of it.

So is Hannity an overpaid hack, so unfamiliar with his own party’s recent political history that he can’t remember the words of its nominee for the Presidency of the United States of America— OR is he a lying douche bag who will say anything at anytime because he has no principles or morals?

You decide.

Is Sarah Palin Un-American?

with 2 comments


Seems that lost in the whole my teenage daughter got drunk, knocked up, and dropped out of high school— plus, and oh yeah, I’m under ethics investigation thing— people seem to have not noticed that Sarah Palin is, at the very least, un-American. Maybe she even hates America.

Don’t believe me? Not as part of John McCain’s crack vetting process, but instead as part of good ‘ole investigative journalism we come to find out that Sarah Palin supported the Alaska Independence Party. A Party that what? Wait for it… advocates seceding from the United States of America.

That’s right. Sarah Palin supported an organization that hates America so much that they want to break up our union, leave the country and become a nation unto themselves (or join Canada— seriously). What’s more un-American than that?

Now a few years later Sarah Palin wants to run a country she advocated destroying? And believe me, wanting to break up The United States of America does count as destroying it.

Disliking your country so strongly that you not only want to leave it, but want to take one of our 50 great states with you when you go? How is this not unpatriotic?

Please, ask yourself what would happen if Barack “Madrassa” Obama or his wife Michelle “Kill Whitey” Obama had belonged to such an organization? Would Sean Hannity ever shut up about this? Would Bill O’Reilly pull the luffa out of his ass long enough to jump on (and dry hump) the bandwagon? Of course he would (And that’s saying something).

Even a draft dodger like Rush Limbaugh would go on and on and on about how un-American the Obamas are, and we’d spend the next six weeks debating whether or not the Obamas love this country.

However, let a Republican advocate breaking up the United States of America and conservatives can’t wait to put them in the White House.

Man, the GOP hates America.

Bristol Palin Teenage Drunk

with 9 comments

Seems not only is Bristol knocked up, but following in the footsteps of the Bush twins, she likes to get her party on. New picks of the teenager in a drinking mood are floating around.

Pregnant, high school drop out, teenage drunk. When is it fair to start talking about Palin’s mothering skills?

Afterall, the GOP opened the door. When asked about her paper thin resume, every chance they get the Republican operatives always include “mother” in the list. As in, “She’s a Gov, a mother, a blah blah, blah. 

OK, so she’s a mother. If that’s part of her resume, part of her appeal, let’s talk about that— along with judgement and family values.

You don’t just get to open the door, say she’s a mother, then say we can’t talk about what kind of mother she is.

They opened the door, let’s walk on in.

Bambi, You’re Scaring Me

leave a comment »

Bambi is taking the high road in the Palin unwed teenage pregnancy scandal and I applaud that. I really really do. Barack Obama is proving himself a man of honor and discipline. (He’s above all that knee-capping stuff, but I’m not.)

Ever take honor and discipline to a knife fight? Tell you what, next time you’re in a street brawl take the high road, then call me and let me know how it goes. I’ll be waiting…. forever.

Unfortunately, John Kerry took the high road in ’04 and look how that turned out. If there’s one thing I quasi-admire about the Republicans is that they will kick an old lady down a flight of stairs to win an election on the local PTA board— let alone the Presidency of the United States of America. Don’t believe me? Just ask John McCain.

By Obama not responding, he risks letting the GOP frame the argument to their liking and believe me, they will. They’re already busy making it about Obama, not Palin. She’s now the victim of the scurrilous left-wing rumor mongers.

Obama says that kids are off-limits. Tell that to the GOP. Bambi is naive if he thinks he sets the rules. He doesn’t. He better get on this shit soon or by morning the entire scandal will be his fault and CNN et al will be playing right along.

So ok, lay off the kids. Speak to the failed policies of abstinence, Palin’s judgement, AND if you want to get all GOP on their ass, her mothering skills. (Imagine what they’d of done to Hillary Clinton if Chelsea turned up pregnant in the 90s.)

It’s like Jon Stewart said, “Shit on Them!

If the shoe was on the other foot FOX “News” would be plastering this shit 24/7. Fuck the hurricane! We’ve got sex, teenagers, and famous politicians!

We are in a bare knuckled fight for the future of the greatest country on earth…. and we don’t get to set the rules. And unfortunately, against these motherfuckers, we don’t get to take the high road.

I hate to say it, I hate that this is what it takes, but you gotta do what you gotta do. Remember what happened a couple weeks ago when Bambi didn’t fight back against that celebrity nonsense? If he keeps taking the high road, by the end of next week they’ll be saying Obama knocked this kid up on his way to a madrassa after attending an arugula eating contest.  

So get in there Bambi, let ’em fucking have it. They’d do the same to you.

Palin Fails as a Mother

with 11 comments

"I may Be Broke But at Least I'm not Flat Busted"

Seems Grandpa Simpson’s Prom Queen ain’t much of a mother after all.

Now, don’t get me wrong, having your teenager daughter get knocked up isn’t in itself the sign of a failed mother. Why, just look at Britney Spears’ mother and teenager daughter Jamie Lynn. Who among us could say that Britney’s mom didn’t do a great job?

No, that’s not it at all. Unfortunately the failed sportscaster turned politican has long since preached her beliief in eschewing sex-education in the schools of Alaska in favor of what? You guessed it, teaching ABSTINICE. How that work out for her? Um, not so well. The Palin people today announced that Sarah Palin’s 17 year old daughter is, in fact, sperminated.

Will Republicans aknowledge that their VP in go-go boots perfeclty illustrates yet another failed GOP idea? Can they see that they now have a poster child for the failure of abstinence preaching teaching as an effective policy against unwanted pregnancy? Or will they admit instead that Palin simply sucks as a mom? I mean, which is it?

Side note: Anyone care to guess what Rush Limbaugh, et al would say if in a few years Michelle Obama’s daughter turned up as a pregnant, unwed teenager? Cue the FOX “News” graphics and the “Baby Daddy” slurs.

Remind me, is hypocrisy a family value? ‘Cuz I know picking up dudes in bathroom stalls is. And of course, so is whore chasing and pill popping.
