“I would say that your paintings are, in general, far more honest than your digital output. What I mean by this is that you are a liar and your “work” constitutes a suite of hostile, spiteful acts against the viewer and humanity itself. Those who have the misfortune of viewing your work become less human as a result.”—
Look, I know I’m starting to get real crazy about this election biz, and I should probably stop reading the news. Unfortunately, I am addicted. It just seems really, really hard to believe that people have this big of a hard-on for Sarah Palin. She is very clearly a maniac, and I think her record reflects that. Trying to get one’s head around all of the double-speak and maliciousness pouring out of the GOP campaign right now is mind-numbing. Add this to the fact that all of a sudden McCain is up 50%-46% in a (as in singular, but still) poll? It just seems ludicrous. An old man with anger issues & a conservative with ethics issues is the ticket people want to see leading this country? People really want SARAH PALIN as president when McCain catches a grabber inside of a year? This woman tried to BAN BOOKS in her local library and when the librarian wouldn’t do it, tried to have her fired. If that sentence doesn’t at least bother you, we have lost all hope.
Iraq is a war from God. FROM GOD. An old guy in a flowing robe with a beard who lives on a cloud and spies on people is telling a certain percent of the population (not the ones actually there fighting, mind you) that he wants them to kill brown people in the desert. Not to make a joke here, but Jesus Christ. C’mon.
I’ll try to formulate more coherent thoughts on this maybe tomorrow; I need to get to bed. This is going to be a crazy two months.
One of the commenters left this as the roadmap to an ‘08 election theft:
"All the pieces are in place:
(1) The polls are cooked to make the race look too close to call. (2) The media reports the poll figures uncritically, and adds qualitative “data” to support the “close race” story. (3) Voter “caging” and other dirty tricks are used to “lose” millions of (Democratic) votes. (4) The voting machines are rigged to produce an ambiguous outcome that slightly favors the GOP (to avoid “Third World”-type “99% for El Presidente” outcomes). (5) The GOP alleges massive fraud by “illegals” and other ineligible voters, shoving the election into the courts. (6) The Supreme Court “resolves the problem” by handing the election to the GOP.
The only thing that will stop this well-oiled machine from functioning is, IMO, a decision by the GOP that they don’t want to win this time.”
"HELlo my name is Levi Johnston but you can call me Hockey Johnston or just Hockey if you want. Might of heard of me. I’m the dude that knocked up Bristol, Mrs. Palin’s daughter. The older daughter. Willow is H.A.F. 2 but im just talking about Bristol. I only tore that up. Not Willow. Ever…."
"A week ago, most Americans had never heard of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Now, following a Vice Presidential acceptance speech viewed live by more than 40 million people, Palin is viewed favorably by 58% of American voters. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 37% hold an unfavorable view of the self-described hockey mom.
… Generally, John McCain’s choice of Palin earns slightly better reviews than Barack Obama’s choice of Joe Biden. “
GGGGGGGGGGAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. My brain hurts. <i>It hurts</i>.
Here’s the worst part of this…the Right assumes the Left is attacking Palin for having a family or her daughter getting knocked up or killing a moose with her bare hands. That is <i>incorrect</i>. The media is digging and digging deep on her; the media does not equal the Democrats. If there are any attacks coming from the Dems, it is soley on the point that she is inexperienced & unqualified to be PUSA when McCain catches a grabber.
John McCain’s campaign Wednesday called the tough media scrutiny of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a “faux media scandal designed to destroy the first female Republican” vice presidential nominee.
"Governor Sarah Palin is an exceptional governor with a record of accomplishment that exceeds, by far, the governing accomplishments of Senator Obama," wrote senior adviser Steve Schmidt in a memo sent to reporters Wednesday morning. "Her selection came after a six-month long rigorous vetting process where her extraordinary credentials and exceptionalism became clear."
"This vetting controversy is a faux media scandal designed to destroy the first female Republican nominee for Vice President of the United States who has never been a part of the old boys’ network that has come to dominate the news establishment in this country."
