So, little Ashley cooked up her numbskulled little plot to hurt Obama's electoral chances - which in itself connotes that she'd be looking for media attention - and she's upset with the media?
My God. By current republican standards, she could run for vice-president some day.
She's a smart, "intellectual" dame.
That gal may be bright
And quite tough in a fight,
But her intellect's woefully lame.
The Democratic leader of a congressional oversight committee said International Oil Trading Co. - co-owned by Harry Sargeant, a longtime friend of Gov. Charlie Crist and the finance chairman of the Florida Republican Party - has a virtual monopoly on military fuel contracts, allowing the company to earn twice as much in profits as past suppliers.
Some of her appointments make "Heckuva Job Brownie" look like Einstein. My favorite is Franci Havemeister, another of Palin's childhood friends, who was made director of the Alaska State Agriculture Division. Havemeister was previously a part time real estate agent who stated a childhood love of cows as a qualification for the job.
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge said today that John McCain can't become president without carrying Pennsylvania and that the race would be different if McCain had chosen him as his running mate.
"I think the dynamics would be different in Pennsylvania," Ridge said when asked if he should have been chosen to run as vice president over Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. "I think we'd be foolish not to admit it publicly."
Ridge, the campaign's national co-chairman, said McCain "had several good choices and I was one of them."
Of course, Mr. Duct Tape And Plastic Sheeting is a Republican, and as a result he completely contradicts himself within the space of one sentence.
Ridge nonetheless defended the Palin selection as "excellent" and called it a "typical, bold McCain-like choice."
The color-coded humor scale is red, red, red.
An internal document circulating among House Republicans warns of an impending congressional bloodbath, listing 58 Republican-held House seats being at risk, and 11 already considered as good as gone. As many as 34 GOP-held seats are in serious jeopardy of swinging to Democrats, the assessment shows.I would rather the Democrats win far fewer seats as long as they are real Democrats, not these phony nominal ones from the Republican wing of the Democratic Party who are just as bad as actual Republicans. How do you know who the real ones are? Someone did the work for you.
A plumbing license is not the only license "Joe the Plumber" is having troubles with. The former Mesa resident has a suspended driver's license and outstanding court fines in Arizona, according to Mesa Municipal Court records.
The man portrayed by McCain to be the typical, hardworking American revealed this week that he actually does not have a plumbing license, and now court records show he should not have a driver's license either, making it potentially even harder for him to get to work.
Wurzelbacher, who lived in Mesa in 2000 and had an Arizona driver's license, had his driver's license suspended by the Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division on May 4, 2000, following a nonpayment of a court-imposed fine for civil traffic violations, according to court records.
America's new political icon, who owes nearly $1,200 in back taxes, according to public records, still owes more than $700 to the Mesa court system.
First Ashley Todd was the innocent flower of snowy white virginal Republican Christian womanhood defiled by the Negro Savage, and now that her story didn't fly, and she's outlived her usefulness to the wingnuts, now she's an Obama plant.
If people got visits from Secret Service for wearing anti-Bush T-shirts, why isn't this guy getting one for "predicting" the assassination of Barack Obama?
In mid-September The Nation's website published a photo of McCain celebrating his seventieth birthday in Montenegro in August 2006 at a yacht party hosted by convicted Italian felon Raffaello Follieri and his movie-star girlfriend Anne Hathaway. On the same day one of the largest mega-yachts in the world, the Queen K, was moored in the same bay of Kotor. This was where the real party was. The owner of the Queen K was known as "Putin's oligarch": Oleg Deripaska, controlling shareholder of the Russian aluminum giant RusAl, currently listed as the ninth-richest man in the world, with a rap sheet as abundant as his wealth. By mid-2005 Deripaska had already virtually taken control of Montenegro's economy by snapping up its aluminum plant, KAP--which accounts for up to 40 percent of the country's GDP and some 80 percent of its export earnings--in a nontransparent privatization tender strongly criticized by NGO watchdogs, Montenegrin politicians and journalists. The Nation has learned that Deripaska told one of his closest associates that he bought the plant "because Putin encouraged him to do it." The reason: "the Kremlin wanted an area of influence in the Mediterranean."
Deripaska is himself involved in some political scandal right now - involving both a high level Labour Party cabinet minister, Lord Peter Mandelson who was one of Tony Blair's closest advisors and the current shadow chancellor, the Conservative Party's George Osborne. Both McCain and his campaign manager, Rick Davis have dubious ties to Deripaska too. Other McCain campaign advisers, lobbyists to a man, have their own shady connections.
John McCain keeps saying he's a reformer and a maverick with no time for the incestuous and often shady dealings of the K Street crowd - but his actions speak louder than his words.
Some fundies aren't aware of cached pages. Like the homeschool mom that was the inspiration for the Dear crazy Christian lady letter. Here's one in all its wretched glory from Pastor Anderson, calling for intolerance:
It is time that preachers and Baptist people take a stand against the Sodomite freaks and turn off the television that tries to shove their perversion down our throat. God help a generation of Christians that does not think that homosexuality is "that bad." We need a revival of old-fashioned righteous indignation and hatred for sin and perverts.
This is the face of fundamentalist Christian love. These are the sorts of people extorting companies that support No on Prop 8.
And they want to run this country.
Why does she keep wearing that polar bear pin when she refuses to acknowledge that the polar bears are drowning and she fought their designation as an endangered species.?
I can only assume that her wearing of that pin is a signal to her fellow animal haters that if she's elected she'll open up aerial hunting for polar bears too. After all, this came out of her administration:
The Board of Game, which she appoints, has approved the killing of black bear sows with cubs as part of the program and expanded the aerial control programs
And of course aerial gunning of wolves.
Fun fact: Sarah Palin's makeup person is being paid $11,400 a week.
What must she look like under that $45,000 a month in makeup?
