John McCain is a repulsive liar and idiot; Sarah Palin is a dangerous imbecile. Together they comprise the team of Bozo and Barbie. May they rest in peace at the bottom of the heap come election day.
With the economy in the shitter, our environment in shambles, our energy policy as pathetic and nonsensical as our immigration policy, the American people should be up in arms over the bullshit being spewed by the Republicans.
We should demand change in the way our government functions. Election campaign reform is an essential as government reform in general. Out with the lobbyists and special interests that have controlled our government for so many years. Is everyone in government on the take?
Let’s get back to McCain and Palin for a moment. They represent “bad government” in its truest form. It’s one thing to campaign on differences of opinion but they seem only to know how to campaign on misrepresentations, taking things out of content, twisting concepts and flat out lies.
When NBC’s Brian Williams pointed out to the McCain team that Senator Joe Leibowitz (McCain’s Democratic supporter) made essentially the same comment that Sen. Joe Biden had made about a new president being tested by the international crisis, McCain and Palin both simply brushed aside the remark and continued to attack Obama and Biden.
Their nonstop attacks on Biden’s remarks are pathetic. They prove just how good the Republicans are at twisting things and diverting the voters’ attention from really important things like what the Republicans’ campaign is all about. If I were to say that the sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day, this less than dynamic duo would say I was out of touch with reality, that I can’t see the dire hell we are in financially and that because the person standing next to me at the bus stop when I made my comment is a man named Mohammed who 40 years ago had done something bad, I must therefore be a terrorist.
Sarah Palin can’t utter an independent thought. She has none. She’s a parrot. Every word out of her mouth has been written for her and it reiterates everything the McCain has already said. Of being a “maverick”, Palin has uttered: “We/he have the scars to prove it.” “John MCain has been tested, he has the scars to prove it.” McCain: ‘Well, I’ve been tested. I have the scars to prove it.’ Blah, blah, blah …. Take your scars and shove it.
Sarah Palin is stupid. She said she has foreign policy experience because of Alaska’s proximity to Russia. Even her fellow Alaskans were taken aback by the stupidity of her remark. When asked which newspapers she reads, she said she reads ‘all of them’, then said she was annoyed by the question. I remember people asking other candidates throughout the years the same question, including what books they’ve read recently – none of them were so highly offended as Palin.
The Repbulicans kept Palin away from public view and the press for many weeks after her selection as V.P. Why? So they could mold her into the parrot – which is precisely how she acted in her debate with Joe Biden. She had the audacity to stand up at a public debate which both parties had agreed to and said she was not going to answer the questions. Instead she used the debate as a platform to spew her memorizations of the Republican ticket and to attack Obama and Biden. Actually, I would have thought Palin would be happy as a Caribou in shit in debating Joe Biden; after all his name is Joe, and we know how much Palin is in love with her Joes: Joe Six-Pack and Joe-the Plumber.
Apparently, they also hid her away during that time so she and her equally stupid family could go on a shopping spree to spend $150,000 of Republican money on clothing.
Perhaps the most eggrecious of all Republican charges, though, is the one in which they call intelligent people who have been well educated and who are good speakers “elitists”. It’s bogus. I certainly would much rather have a smart well educated person being the leader of one of the most important countries in the world than having Joe Six-Pack running things.
Just remember, it’s was the Republican base who voted George Bush into office, not once, but twice – because they thought he was someone with whom they’d like to have BBQ and a beer. — filed Oct. 25, 2008
