Lipstick on Pigs

The McBush campaign is upset that Barack Obama used the line “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig” in a speech today. Of course, Sarah Palin was first to bring the subject of lipstick into the campaign with her corny joke in her RNC speech last week. And John McSame himself used the same line about lipstick and pigs when criticizing Hillary Clinton’s healthcare proposals last year. What’s so “offensive” about pigs and lipstick?

Sarah Palin Sex Scandal

Sarah Knows Sex Sells

Mao Knows Sex Sells

Mao Knows Sex Sells

In the interest of fairness and in tribute to Mao of Caosblog, the subject of this post is a RUMOR. Mao has lost all credibility after she agreed with Dick the toe sucker Morris that Sarah Palin is the next Margaret Thatcher..
http://caosblog.com/8744

So, to honor her tragic fall from everyday w(r)ong wing hack to batshit crazy/no sense of history fool, I post about the rumored Sarah Palin sex scandal. Whether true or ficticious, Mao has taught me not to worry about the validity of rumors. She has no problem pushing the rumor of Obama drug-fueled gay sex, so I have no problem bringing to light the whispers of a Palin extramarital affair. Plus, it’ll help my stats. People love this shit, for it allows them to look down upon politicians and to come to the conclusion that these big-name pols are no better than they themselves and those whom they associate with.  
Well, rumor has it that our gal Sarah had an affair with a business partner involved in a car wash with Todd Palin. Sounds like possible monkey business to me. Then again, it may not be true. But no worries, the w(r)ong wingers have taught me that sex sells. It doesn’t matter if the sex ever took place, it still sells. They like gay sex scandals and I guess we like straight sex scandals. Cool, I’m ok with that. So here is the scoop on Sarah’s latest scandal…

Condi Rice to Dine With Terr’st Muammar Gaddafi

I said I was sorry, now buy our oil!

I said I was sorry, now buy our oil!

Swingin’ single and U.S. Secretary of State Condi Rice will break bread with terrorist leader Muammar Gaddafi, of Libya, this weekend. Never mind the fact that (r)epukes constantly criticize Obama’s reported willingness to sit down and chat with leaders of nations hostile to U.S. interests. Libya has apologized for the Lockerbie bombing which killed 180 Americans in 1988, and that means he’s A-OK with the Bush crowd. After all, Libya has plenty of oil, and the Bushies never have a problem putting their thirst for more oil before American lives.

Mike Huckabee’s Future In Comedy

Yuck Yuck Huck

Yuck Yuck Huck

That ol’ jokester Huckleberry just claimed that Sarah Palin got more votes for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska (pop. 9000) than Joe Biden did for President of the U-nited States. Yuck yuck. I’m assuming that the McBush campaign will say that the comment was “just a joke”, as it is blatantly untrue. Those (r)epukes sure are funny!

Biden received more votes in Florida (after he’d already dropped out of the Democratic Presidential Primary of 2008), 15,704 than Sarah Palin received for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska in 1999, 909.

But hey, Huck was just kiddin’.

Sarah Palin’s Daughter is Pregnant

The McBush campaign has announced that Sarah Palin’s seventeen year old daughter is pregnant. (I am not using the name of the young woman on this blog for she has done nothing wrong. For those who for some reason need to know her name, it is easy to find).

Sarah Palin associates with the pro-“life” crowd, many of whom oppose birth control. I’d like to know what Sarah Palin’s positions are on birth control. Specifically, I’d like her to answer the simple question John McBush refused to answer regarding insurance companies, Viagra, and birth control. (Seen here)…

I wish her daughter well in both her pregnancy and upcoming marriage. Let’s leave her out of this and focus on her mother’s ideas on teenaged pregnancy and birth control.

Sarah Palin Thinks Cancer is Funny

Hooooraaay for Cancer!!!

Hooooraaay for Cancer!!!

 

Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin appeared on an Alaskan “shock jock” radio show in January of this year. At one point in the program, one of the hosts referred to Alaska’s state senate president and fellow republican Lyda Green as a “cancer” and a “bitch”. Green is a cancer survivor. Palin’s response? Laughter. Audio clip here…

Sarah Smile

 

Early 80s soft core porn star? No!- (r)epuke VP nominee

Early 80s soft core porn star? No!- (r)epuke VP nominee

McBush has chosen his running mate. It’ll be Sarah Palin. Sarah has been governor of Alaska since 2006 and before that she served two terms as both Wasilla, Alaska (pop. 9000) city councilwoman and mayor of that thriving metropolis. Sarah’s other accomplishments include being named runner up of the 1984 Miss Alaska contest and marrying one of the few (r)epuke union members left in America. And I thought Brownie’s resume was impressive!

The pick clearly shows the level of desperation that has overtaken the McSame campaign. His pathetic staff has decided that the best way to charm Hillary voters is to name a pro-“life”, pro-gun, pro-war (almost) beauty queen. Didn’t they even bother to check out what Hillary Clinton stands for? I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again- any Hillary voter who casts a ballot for McCain/Palin should immediately switch his or her registration to (r). This pick is such a joke.

Back in the Saddle Again

Fresh off his Hawaian vaca, Barack Obama was back at Saddleback Church Saturday night, this time to answer questions posed by Pastor Rick Warren. John McCain then aswered the same questions. Evidently he was in a closed room and unable to hear Obama’s answers.
Rick Warren did a fine job questioning the candidates. The network moderators should take note. None of this summers “debates” has provided voters with as much relevant information as tonight’s event. Good stuff.
I thought McSame handled himself fairly well. He seemed confortable with the format. He provided viewers with somewhat clear presentation of his flawed policy proposals. The most important question was handled in very different fashion by each candidate. Here is the transcript from each (Obama in blue, McBush in red)…
 
   Q: OKAY WE’VE GOT ONE LAST TIME — I’VE GOT A BUNCH MORE ABOUT LET ME ASK YOU ONE IN EVIL. DOES EVIL EXIST AND IF IT DOES DO WE IGNORE IT, DO WE NEGOTIATE WITH IT, DO WE CONTAIN IT OR DO WE DEFEAT IT?
   A: EVIL DOES EXIST. I MEAN, WE SEE EVIL ALL THE TIME. WE SEE EVIL IN DARFUR. WE SEE EVIL SADLY ON THE STREETS OF OUR CITIES. WE SEE EVIL IN PARENTS WHO HAVE VICIOUSLY ABUSED THEIR CHILDREN AND I THINK IT HAS TO BE CONFRONTED. IT HAS TO BE CONFRONTED SQUARELY AND ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I STRONGLY BELIEVE IS THAT, YOU KNOW, WE ARE NOT GOING TO, AS INDIVIDUALS, BE ABLE TO ERASE EVIL FROM THE WORLD. THAT IS GOD’S TASK. BUT WE CAN BE SOLDERS IN THAT PROCESS AND WE CAN CONFRONT IT WHEN WE SEE IT. NOW, THE ONE THINK THAT I THINK IS VERY IMPORTANT IS FOR US TO HAVE SOME HUMILITY IN HOW WE APPROACH THE ISSUE OF CON FRONTING EVIL, BUT YOU KNOW A LOT OF EVIL HAS BEEN PERPETRATED BASED ON THE CLAIM THAT WE WERE TRYING TO CONFRONT EVIL.
  Q: IN THE NAME OF GOOD?
  A: INTO THE NAME OF GOOD. AND I THINK ONE THING THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT IS HAVING SOME HUMILITY IN RECOGNIZING THAT, YOU KNOW, JUST BECAUSE WE THINK OUR INTENTIONS ARE GOOD DOESN’T ALWAYS MEAN THAT WE’RE GOING TO BE DOING GOOD.    
 

   Q: HOW ABOUT THE ISSUE OF EVIL? I ASKED THIS OF YOUR RIVAL IN THE PREVIOUS THING. DOES EVIL EXIST AND IF SO, SHOULD WE IGNORE IT, NEGOTIATE WITH IT, CONTAIN IT OR DEFEAT IT?

  A: DEFEAT IT. COUPLE POINTS, ONE, IF I’M PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, MY FRIENDS, IF I HAVE TO FOLLOW HIM TO THE GATES OF HELL, I WILL GET OSAMA BIN LADEN AND BRING HIM TO JUSTICE. I WILL DO THAT AND I KNOW HOW TO DO THAT. I WILL GET THAT DONE. NO ONE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO TAKE THOUSANDS OF AMERICAN — INNOCENT AMERICAN LIVES. OF COURSE EVIL MUST BE DEFEATED. MY FRIENDS, WE ARE FACING THE TRANSCENDENT CHALLENGE OF THE 21-CENTURY, RADICAL ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS. NOT LONG AGO IN BAGHDAD, AL-QAEDA TOOK TWO YOUNG WOMEN WHO WERE MENTALLY DISABLED AND PUT SUICIDE VESTS ON THEM, SENT THEM INTO A MARKETPLACE AND BY REMOTE CONTROL, DETINATED THOSE SUICIDE VESTS. IF THAT ISN’T EVIL, YOU HAVE TO TELL ME WHAT IS AND WE’RE GOING TO DEFEAT THIS EVIL AND THE CENTRAL BATTLE GROUND ACCORDING TO DAVID PETRAEUS AND OSAMA BIN LADEN IS THE BATTLES — IS BAGHDAD, MOSUL AND IRAQ AND WE ARE WINNING AND WE ARE SUCCEEDING AND OUR TROOPS WILL COME HOME WITH HONOR AND VICTORY AND NOT IN DEFEAT AND THAT’S WHAT’S HAPPENING. WE HAVE — AND WE FACE THIS THREAT THROUGHOUT THE WORLD. IT’S NOT JUST IN IRAQ. IT’S NOT JUST IN AFGHANISTAN. OUR INTELLIGENCE PEOPLE TELL US AL-QAEDA CONTINUES TO TRY TO ESTABLISH CELLS HERE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. MY FRIENDS, WE MUST FACE THIS CHALLENGE. WE CAN FACE THIS CHALLENGE AND WE MUST TOTALLY DEFEAT IT AND WE’RE IN A LONG STRUGGLE, BUT WHEN I’M AROUND THE YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN WHO ARE SERVING THIS NATION IN UNIFORM, I HAVE NO DOUBT, NONE.

 
The contrast in the candidates’ logic is crystal clear. Barack Obama recognizes that America must confront evil to succeed. We must confront evil by understanding its roots, message, spread, goals, and tactics. An honest assessment must be presented to the American people. We can then decide as a nation how we wish to deal with “evil” and evildoers.
John McSame couldn’t resist the opportunity to take a page from the Bush playbook when answering the question. He immediately proclaimed that America must defeat evil to succeed. This represents the tired, unsuccessful logic of the neoconservatives. In their view, there is no need for examination of terrorism and other forms of evil. Their philosophy ignores this necessary analysis and jumps straight to the part that lines the pockets of their defense industry chums. We must hunt down and kill or capture every terrorist on the face of the earth, they say. Many of us realize that this is simply not possible. We must focus our efforts on those individuals and entities which pose a threat to America. And the case for military action and government funding for such actions needs to be presented to Americans in a straightforward manner. Only then can we as a nation begin a successful campaign against evil. Barack gets it, McCain clearly does not.

Say Hello to McCain’s Little Friend

Ralph Reed

Ralph Reed

Ralph Reed, former head of the Christian Coalition, will host an exclusive event in downtown Atlanta on Monday to raise some cold hard cash for John McSame. This is a big money fundraiser, so the candidate himself will attend. Ralph’s list of accomplishments include swindling big money from an Indian tribe for his buddy Jack Abramoff, getting arrested for trespass inside an abortion clinic, lobbying for Enron in a deal brokered by Karl Rove, and (last but certainly not least) orchestrating attacks on candidate McSame in the 2000 (r)epuke presidential primary. The attacks on McCain included allegations that he conspired with his Viet Cong captors. Why would McSame now embrace this angry little man with a checkered past? Because John McCain is no “maverick” these days, and he’ll do/say/forgive anyone or anything just to get elected. It’s sad to see the once principled McCain sell himself out to the crowd responsible for destroying America.
