Friend of USA

Which liberal said this about the media Obama love fest?

"I think there is a problem, though, with the media gushing over him too much. I don't think he thinks that he's all that, but the media does. I mean, the coverage after, that I was watching, from MSNBC, I mean these guys were ready to have sex with him....It's embarrassing."

Bill Maher did.

ha!

And I want to add for no particular reason that,

Sarah Palin is hot!

Fist of Etiquette

I wouldn't want to be in Obama's shoes when the feminists go after him for the things his surrogates are saying about Sarah Palin!

"I think there is a problem, though, with the media gushing over him too much."

...or, you know, at all.

I gave credit for it as being megatwat's, NOT MINE. Not only that, you still haven't explained your source for the slurs originating in the USA. Now; about the source: I SAID that the footnotes showed a dictionary that was published in London and a newspaper article published in the Sun, which is published in the UK.

Megamacksmelly didn't note in her quote about the 'cynical students of Arab descent' that the terms had been in use for decades.

You also haven't answered the slurs you EUers like to heap on each other. What about them? Americans didn't come up with those. I am not working for a degree; I have one. I am not female.

Bugger off.

Ace of Spades HQ have dealt with most of these in detail. Type "Palin" into the search and scroll down for newer results.

1. Bridge to Nowhere--I'm not sure what you're quote was supposed to mean here...I mean, in regards to her being deceptive. Can you elaborate, or provide a link? My understanding (from several Alaskan acquaintances who observed the situation as it was taking place) was that she was eager to cancel it...I haven't seen anything indicating differently. Was it just the tone she used, or do you have information showing that she fought to continue the project?

Seems she weighed both sides of the situation and took the better option:

Asked why she supported the bridge, Palin's communications director Bill McAlister said, "It was never at the top of her priority list, and in fact the project isn't necessarily dead, there's still the potential for improved ferry service or even a bridge of a less costly design." She changed her mind, he said, when "she saw that Alaska was being perceived as taking from the country and not giving, and that impression bothered her and she wants to change it. … I think that Sarah Palin is someone who has the courage to reevaluate situations as they developed."

2. Regarding the state trooper/commissioner--there's apparently a policy that prohibits employing troopers if they're known spouse/child abusers. That officer tased his teenage stepson for "practice," among other things. The commissioner wasn't doing his job, so she dismissed him...and then called for an independent investigation herself to make sure everything was on the up and up.

I don't get it, Coonass.

Bill Ayers is a tenured education professor at the University of Illinois-Chicago? And he was a Vietnam war protestor in his youth. He now sits on some board with Obama. How does that impinge on Obama? If Bill Ayers had anything to do with terrorism -- as of now -- surely he'd be in jail, not an education prof in a university.

Look, while McCain was a POW held by the North Vietnamese, he was subjected to torture and after four days signed a 'confession' saying that he was an "air pirate" and various other stuff. He was originally against all torture by America, but subsequently voted with Bush on the subject. There are people in Guantanamo signing all sorts of crazy confessions after being waterboarded, etc, and these 'confessions' seem to be accepted verbatim by the American public. But I haven't heard any complaints about McCain's "confession" dragged out of him when he was a POW.

If people want to drag up issues from the past, they could call McCain's "confession" treasonous, or the North Vietnamese could have labelled him a criminal and not a POW at the time. Certainly "confessions" manipulated out of detainees in Guantanamo are taken as 'solid evidence' supposed to be acceptable in court cases. Sorry, military tribunals.

McCain cheated on his wife as soon as he came back from Vietnam, right? Ok, I don't fault him for that necessarily (given what he'd been through), but his official bio seems to say that he only got involved with his second wife after he'd broken up with the first. However, the records show that he applied for a marriage license to marry his second wife when he was still with his first? Looks like he's 'whitewashed' his bio.

All this digging in the distant past seems a bit mad. And Obama sitting on a board with someone who had a radical youth - but who is now a prof in a university - seems equally mad. Obama had nothing to do with the Weather Underground.

Since then I've been reading that McCain's lawyers are only now up in Alaska vetting Palin's background -- 72+ hours after he'd announced her name. And the question of her daughter's pregnancy (something I'm not going to criticise, as it happens in many families) is relevent only in so far as she's against sex education for kids. Which we would find pretty ironic.

*AND*, the fact that it seems her daughter may be being pressurised into marriage -- against the boy's (the baby's father's) will, and possibly against Palin's daughter's will too -- all in pursut of Palin's career as a possible future VP? I don't see that as putting her daugher's welfare first. She's only 17 for heaven's sake.

I've just read this:

Sarah Palin's daughter's 'redneck' boyfriend adds to McCain campaign woes

02 Sep 2008

"Levi Johnston, a self-described "------' redneck" who does not "want kids", is set to join Sarah Palin's family at Republican convention. The bad-boy image of Levi Johnston, 18, the boyfriend of Bristol Palin, 17, added to the pressure surrounding Senator John McCain after his decision to choose Mrs Palin as a running mate in the Republican bid for the White House...
"On his MySpace page, Mr Johnston, an avid ice hockey player, proudly declares: "I'm a ------' redneck" who would kick ass if anyone gave him trouble. Poignantly, in the one part of the site where it asks about children, he wrote, "I don't want kids." The web page was removed yesterday and appeared not to have been accessed for a year."

It's those kids I feel sorry for in all this, but Palin would be someone who is running on a family values platform, right?

And then there's this stuff:

"Palin was member of party calling for vote on Alaskan secession from US --Revelations about McCain's running mate for vice-president raise questions about his selection"

02 Sep 2008

"New revelations about the Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin -- including her membership of a party that wants Alaskans to vote on becoming a separate country -- are raising questions about how thoroughly John McCain's campaign vetted her background before adding her to the ticket. Palin was a member of the Alaskan Independence party (AIP) before becoming an elected Republican official, according to party members, and recorded a video message for the AIP convention this year."

I've even seen a few references to the McCain camp 'pulling' her nomination. But I can't see that happening as it would surely wreck his campaign.

Anyway ... bad time for me to be involved in a discussion, I'm afraid, as I'm up to my eyeballs in something at work. I'll be back when I can.

[BTW yes, I'm making a distinction between distant past and recent past, as I think what people do in their youth shouldn't be held against them when they're much older. I did some crazy stuff in my own youth. But the web seems to be 'alive' with stuff about Palin's unsuitability and McCain's total ignorance about her!]

In haste ..

Are you guys seriously saying you think Palin is the best person available for the job? With a thin resumé that has no experience at national level. McCain says Iraq and the threat of Islamic extremism are his two biggest priorities. And what experience has Palin in these areas? Zilch.

My understanding is that McCain wanted Lieberman. But he was forced to pick Palin to appeal to the hard-right. McCain was supposed to be a 'maverick' who appealed to moderates. So this is his first 'presidential' decision -- to pick Palin? But who exactly is making that decision? Who's running McCain -- if he really wanted Lieberman?

Too many questions. Too many people wondering how Palin could end up a heartbeat away from the presidency, with no national experience of any kind.

And a sea of white faces at the RNC. Where's the representation of REAL America?

And you have to love the way a Vietnam vet was trashed before the last election. And now it's all about being a Vietnam vet ... oh yes. :)

Jean Fraude Kerry wasn't trashed; he was exposed for the liar he is. Compare his and McCain's records, dumbass. Kerry milked a four month tour wherein he was 'wounded' three times, managed to score three Purple Hearts out of a grain of rice in the butt and hence get out of the war.

McCain was a POW, a commander and certainly has told Kerry to stick it where the sun don't shine. So, since you have once again proven that rhetorical hyperbole, not logic, guides you, STFU. We can say that the ROI is guided by terror supporters when officials who served in the IRA are elected to public office. Hyperbole or the truth?

We will decide for you.

Have a nice day, intellectual liar.

Have you found the etymological origins of towelhead and raghead yet? No? Then once again, you must keep your slack jawed drooling mouth shut.

SARAH PALIN HAS NOT BEEN VETTED!

This is the cry from supporters of Senator Obama. I wish someone had told me that sanctimony was the politics of change.

"We should all be proud of Governor Sarah Palin's historic nomination, and I congratulate her and Senator McCain. While their policies would take America in the wrong direction, Governor Palin will add an important new voice to the debate."

[H]ouse prices have increased over the last year in 30 states, including increases of above 4% for two states (OK and WY), and increases at or above 3% for 12 states (OK, WY, TX, OK, SD, ND, MS, AL, NC, SC, KY, WV). Finally, more than half of the states (27) have experienced home price increases of 1% or greater, and 30/50 states have experienced price increases over the most recent year (2007:Q2 to 2008:Q2).
