Republicans Crossed Line with Voter Purge Attempt

leave a comment »

By John Bohlinger – 10/05/2008 

Frank St. Pierre, of Anaconda, fought in World War II. He is one of the most decorated living veterans in America. And yet, on Wednesday, my party — the Montana Republican Party — tried to invalidate his voter registration because he lives in a county with a lot of Democrats. Incredible as this may sound to you, it is the truth.

John McCain Pays $5,000 for His Make Up

with one comment

That’s right. In addition to not knowing how many houses he owns, driving 13 cars, and walking around in $500 loafers Richie Rich spent $5,583.43 for the make up services of the woman pictured above— according the the Federal Election Commission.

Remember when people went nuts over John Edwards’ haircuts and Obama’s acceptance speech stage? What will the media say about McCain’s make up? I’m betting with the exception of Rachel Maddow or Olbermann, no one says shit.

12 Lies of Sarah Palin

leave a comment »

The pitbull can’t seem to walk a straight line. Here’s the break down in no uncertain terms from the Atlantic:

– She has lied about the Bridge To Nowhere. She ran for office favoring it, wore a sweatshirt defending it, and only gave it up when the federal congress, Senator McCain in particular, went ballistic. She kept the money anyway and favors funding Don Young’s Way, at twice the cost of the original bridge.

– She has lied about her firing of the town librarian and police chief of Wasilla, Alaska.

– She has lied about pressure on Alaska’s public safety commissioner to fire her ex-brother-in-law.

– She has lied about her previous statements on climate change.

– She has lied about Alaska’s contribution to America’s oil and gas production.

– She has lied about when she asked her daughters for their permission for her to run for vice-president.

– She has lied about the actual progress in constructing a natural gas pipeline from Alaska.

– She has lied about Obama’s position on habeas corpus.

– She has lied about her alleged tolerance of homosexuality.

– She has lied about the use or non-use of a TelePrompter at the St Paul convention.

– She has lied about her alleged pay-cut as mayor of Wasilla.

– She has lied about what Alaska’s state scientists concluded about the health of the polar bear population in Alaska.

Uh-Oh.

I guess it was inevitable. People are starting to fiddle with the proposed bailout plan of capitalism. The Times is reporting this morning that Democrats, Republicans, and even financial companies are all beginning to lobby for what they want out of the upcoming bailout. Half of it doesn’t sound half bad: Oversight of the Treasury Dept., guarantees that any profits from the new program go directly back to the Treasury, etc.

Problems is, markets, all markets, are tenuous at best right now. If there is even the slightest hint that the Administration and Congress cannot make a deal, or even that a deal may be delayed due to squabbling, it could be devastating to market confidence.

Full story here.

The Pitbull Bitches Out

leave a comment »

Seems Palin is all bark and no bite, and even then not so much. The Obama and McCain camps have agreed to debates that will include a much more free-wheeling style of questions and answer and sparring than most other Presidential debates. 

Yeah, ‘cept Palin totally bitched out on the same process for the VP debates. The pitbull and her handlers were scared to let her go bare knuckled against Joe Biden and insisted on a more formal, structured debate that will allow much less opportunity for free-wheeling direct exchanges between the running mates.

McCain’s team was up front about the fact that they are total pussies. They were “concerned” that a loose format could leave the Prom Queen at a disadvantage against Joe biden. Gee, do you think? Why, she could just go on about how she lives next door to Russia and shit— I’m sure that’d work.

First she’s afraid of the press, then she’s scared to cooperate in the Troopergate investigation, now she’s scared of Joe Biden. A pitbull in lipstick? More like a  chihuahua in drag… either way, she comes up bitch.

Update On: Rush Limbaugh, Little Bitch

leave a comment »

Racist junkie is all upset about being quoted accurately by Barack Obama in a new Spanish language ad.

Mostly, the fat fucking draft-dodger is whining that he’s being taken out of context.

OK, so let’s take a look:

Supposedly out-of-context quote:

“…stupid and unskilled Mexicans.”

Context:

“If you are unskilled and uneducated, your job is going south. Skilled workers, educated people are going to do fine ’cause those are the kinds of jobs Nafta is going to create. If we are going to start rewarding no skills and stupid people, I’m serious, let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do — let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work.

Second supposedly out-of-context quote:

“You shut your mouth or you get out!”

Context:

“And another thing: You don’t have the right to protest. You’re allowed no demonstrations, no foreign flag waving, no political organizing, no bad-mouthing our president or his policies. You’re a foreigner: shut your mouth or get out! And if you come here illegally, you’re going to jail.”

Oh. Now I see.

Bush Dines on Lobster While Capitalism Melts

with 3 comments

Where the fuck is George Bush when the economy was melting into the ground? Why, dinning on Maine Lobster, late-summer corn pudding, ginger-scented farm lamb, and graham-fucking-cracker crumble with a cocoa pod shell. Hope he didn’t dribble any on his pearly white tuxedo.

Yeah, on Monday when the market crashed Bush was dinning with the President of Ghana as yuppies all over the planet were drowning in red ink. (I guess Kanye West was wrong. It ain’t black people Clown Shoes doesn’t care about— it’s everyone.)

And oh yeah, after dinner they all went down to the east lawn and in the moonlight watched eleven members of the Lion King sing a few fucking songs for them. (No lie.)

Here’s the best part: Bush’s toast for the president of Ghana was 383 words long. When he came out to address the financial crisis yesterday afternoon his statement was 263 words long. (Priorities and all that, I guess.)

Remember when those planes hit the World Trade Center on September 11 and this dickhead sat reading a children’s book? It’s kinda like that.

Remember when Katrina drowned New Orleans and this asshole didn’t do shit for days? It’s kinda like that too.

And this fucking political party seriously thinks they deserve four more years to further fuck up this nation, dine on Maine lobster, read fucking children’s books, and sleep like babies as our nation is ravaged by terrorists, biblical acts of God, and the end of capitalism as we know it? I don’t fucking think so.

Fuck these assholes.
