Who Hijacked Our Country

Sarah Palin: “Sort of like a Vice President, Only With Responsibilities”

Our country’s dedicated Community Organizers got dissed the other night by some phony self-absorbed ice queen. These are the people who work hand in hand with churches to help inner city residents who’ve been evicted, laid off or had their homes foreclosed. “Community Organizer” teeheeheeheehee…

And unlike certain petty spiteful politicians, community organizers don’t have any political clout that they can use for banning books and getting people fired.

But not to take it personally. The above-mentioned asshole also has a low opinion of another well-known job position: Vice President of the United States. Or, she used to anyway.

Before Sarah Palin was chosen as VP, she answered an interviewer’s question with:

“As for that VP talk all the time, I'll tell you, I still can't answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? I'm used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we're trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”

And she toks rill goood too.

Or to paraphrase Bluto Blutarsky: “Six years of college down the drain.”

Yeah, that speech was a load of bull. I can't believe that people rally behind those types of words. This is going to be an ugly election. I wonder when the issues will start to come to light for the GOP. I'm assuming never...

David: Don't hold your breath waiting for the Republicans to start talking about issues. They seem to have a lot more fun dissing Obama, Biden, treehuggers, elitists and community organizers.

She "toks" real good too, as in Tok, Alaska. Heh. Sorry!

I think you guys are right. At this point, they are getting loads of mileage out of name-calling and dissing, acting tough, strutting around... enough so that they don't think they have to address things that matter to most Americans. I can see this going on for another week or ten days, but then it will be time for some debates, right?

When do we get to see Obama take McCain behind the woodshed, and see Biden make mincemeat of Palin on foreign policy and military matters? If the GOP is successful enough at dumbing this election down further than it has in the past week, it might not matter too much if the Dems make the Repubs look silly in debates.

Obama and Biden and the Democrats need to be doing more to counter the angry, adrenalin-junked Republican party. The GOP will come down off its adrenalin high sooner or later, but sooner is better.

Snave: I've heard she toked a bit too, in her shady past. Not that I care, but that's the kind of thing the wingtards usually go apeshit over, unless it's somebody they like.

Those assholes can't keep preaching to the choir and expect to get elected. At some point they're gonna have to put away their soundbites and personal attacks and try to discuss the issues. At that point they'll be toast.

Her speech was awful. Come to think of it, the whole R Convention was awful. It was all about war and power (not energy). They rarely discussed issues, and when they did, it was about war and oil.

The first two days were spent talking about everyone but McCain, and it seemed that everyone had a war or oil connection. It was, to be frank, mildly frightening to see that many people getting worked up about nothing but hyperbole. What a pretentious, superficial, and ignorant party the Republican Party.

Was it over when the Democrats bombed Pearl Harbor?

At least McCain is about change, real change.

The thing that bothers me about the debates is what bothered me about them in 2004. Kerry absolutely destroyed Bush and that's with Bush being wired and Kerry not going for the jugular like he should have. Yet the talking hairpieces remained far too generous with Chimpy. I can see that happening this time around, subtle jabs and those nasty Dems being mean to an old war hero and a woman.

Anything to keep the race close for ratings.

This country will be in for a big shock if McCain and Palin are running it.

Carlos: Her speech sucked, and even more infuriating were all those mouthbreathers in the crowd, just roaring and cheering and eating up everything she said. What a bunch of assholes.

Randal: That's right, the Democrats bombed Pearl Harbor; I forgot about that. And they also flew those airliners into the World Trade Center almost 7 years ago.

Imagine the Right's reaction if a Democratic candidate's spouse had belonged to an organization that wanted to secede from the U.S. But it's OK when a Republican does it.

Let's Talk: Yes, it'll be shocking. We'll have to make sure that doesn't happen.

Jesus was a swarthy community organizer......

I'm glad I'm not the only one who found her little jab at community organizers--of all political stripes--jerkalicious. I guarantee that as a community organizer, Obama STILL had to work with and deal with more people than Palin has as AK's guv'ner.

So being "hot" and talking in sound bites is all it takes to be VP? Hell, as someone who works out 6 days a week and used to do stand-up, I'm evidently overqualified for the third most important job in America (behind the president and Karl Rove).

Forgot to leave this link for you from another one of my blogs. It's priceless. I took the pics/vid (of my TV) the last night of the RNC. Sad

It's Your Damned Language

Her speech was a lot of snap and "No she di'int! Oh yes she diiid!" than it was about anything coherent and substantive. Then again these conventions are always just big circle jerks.

Though hast been added to both my blogrolls.

You may kneel and lick my boot if you feel you must thank me for my graciousness.

Lew: True, and Jesus would probably be crucified by James Dobson and Pat Robertson if he ever came back.

MHP: Jerkalicious -- good description. No doubt one of those community organizers sees a lot more in one day in the inner city than a small-town mayor sees in a lifetime.

You should go for it; give Sarah a run for her money. But I'm not sure if that job is 3rd most important or not. Besides Rove, there are a lot of PNAC types who are pulling the strings and calling the shots.

Carlos: Thanks for the link. I'll check it out.

Chemist: That's true, these conventions are mostly just circle jerks; preaching to the choir and all that. Somehow this RNC was just more infuriating than the others, hearing all those ridiculous soundbites and seeing so many dunces cheering and jumping for joy.

Thanks for the link. I'll link up to your 2 blogs.

I think LT is correct... if Palin and McCain gain control, we could all be in for some very difficult times. Perish that thought, though.

I also believe that once the post-convention Palin hype dies down a bit more and the Republicans have to talk about issues or else looking like "empty suits" or (gasp) "celebrities"... the choice will be much more clear to voters.

Snave: I think you're right, but maybe I'm just too optimistic. At some point those assholes will have to come out from behind their slogans and soundbites, and they won't know what to say.

I've also read that Democratic voter registration and campaign contributions have gone way up in the past few days. That's a hopeful sign.

I'm beginning to wish that kook party had managed to pull off secession — taking Super Star Sarah with it.

SW: That's a thought. Maybe we'd be better off without them. But then we'd have to invade Alaska because they have weapons of mass destruction, er, I mean oil.

I love it. You guys are dreading this election because you know, I know, we ALL know it's over for Barack and Joe, poor things. Hey, B.O. had it going on for awhile...I give him his due. Rock star, messiah, The One, whatever. And Biden was the better pick (despite what he said about Hillary). Great start, but it's done. The dems, once again, will be seen as having been outdone by the grown-ups again. See, you just can't send a child in to do an adult's job, guys. It's real simple. The country learned its lesson with Clinton, the Boy President. He was all talk, lots of charm and had a great pointing finger, but he was a boy with a skirt problem. It takes a grown-up to run a country, someone with a grip on things. Not someone with a mantra ("Change! Hope! Audacity!") C'mon--it's Over, Johnnie. It's OVER.

So who's the "grownup" you're referring to here? George W. Bush? LOL. McCain might be competent enough for the job, but Sarah Palin is so far out of her league it's pitiful.
