perhaps the only way we can deal with the continuous, shameless lies that are coming out of the McCain campaign is with the only thing that Sarah Palin has shown that she can offer the country: snark.

with thanks to Wonkette ...

Quote:
Nobody is allowed to talk about lipstick and various animals you would put it on, unless you are Sarah Palin. For example, when Barack Obama was talking about the Republican health care plan and called it “putting lipstick on a pig,” this was obviously a Sexist and demeaning SMEAR against the vice presidential candidate, who already made it clear that she was a bloodthirsty and vicious dog, not a cuddly, sensitive, intelligent little pig. Barack Obama needs to confine his language to simple one-syllable words and not use elitist compound nouns anyhow.

Wow you've now played the race card and the gender card...

why are you so willing to believe these lies about Barack Obama?

it must be because he's black.



see? everyone can do what the McCain campaign is currently doing.

I know that - Obama made the joke about lipstick on a pig and the McCain campaign is twisting to make it look like an insult to Palin, which it is not.

I'm just saying there's no lie in that video - it's just circumstantial evidence of the fact that the McCain camp doesn't for one second actually believe Obama was insulting Palin.

He's got a point. At least the "feminism" we're all used to in North America.

So because she used the word "lipstick" no one can use a colloquialism that uses the same word? She owns that word no matter what the context now, huh? And if someone does use the word "lipstick" in anything that might be perceived as negative towards her or even her campaign partner, they can cry sexism and it should pass without question.

Sweet deal on her part.

I guess I missed the part where bullheaded white women librul feminists are attacking Sarah Palin for holding a high political office while having a family. Did Gloria Steinem say she belongs at home with her baby or something?

The term "pro-abortion" is about as synonymous with 'pro-choice' as the term 'tomato' is with 'igneous rock'. Sure they're both things, but that's where it should end: what they are -- the very essence of what they are -- is wholly different. Just like 'Democrat'/'democrat' and 'Republican'/'republican'. It amazes me how much partisan illogic seeps not only into the rhetoric with which people discuss politics, but into the language with which some of these same people live their lives. I'm not really interested in that discussion so much as I'm actually curious about how much of it, on both sides, is individual thought and how much is party lexicon. If the campaigning is designed to win the votes of the unaligned -- and it must be, because it seems that party-aligned voters are by and large only willing to listen to the good about their side, and only the bad about the other side -- I wonder how effective smear campaigns, polarizing language, etc, can really be. I mean, if it's only really effective in bolstering the support of voters you already have I can't imagine that the tit-for-tat back and forth will influence genuinely informed, rational, unaligned voters. How is it going to sway them when all the bullshit that clearly has nothing to do with anything as far as running a nation is concerned? If anything, it'll just drive away votes that'd be relevant to actualizing a more true democratic process, the votes of those who are so frustrated from having to listen to idiots that they walk away from the process.

Got an email from a female friend today. I quote:
"And for the 1st time in my life, I'm worried about stupid white women."
I responded with something to the effect of 'damn them'.
She replied "She kills furry animals. Real f*ckin' pro-life"

\random

carry on!

And again, I tend to be way more left leaning. But what i see, read and hear is bordering on lunacy.

It takes 2 weeks to get her ready for 1 interview. She's going to make a great President.
