The pro-life movement cracks me up, because it's almost entirely composed of supporters of the death penalty.

It's like that whole doublethink thing from 1984.

And, STING, your argument defending Palin's view on rape victims and abortions is beyond absurd. It doesn't make any sense for you to decide whether or not a mother can handle looking at a child who was fathered by a rapist.

Palin talks economic worries in Appalachian Ohio

By PHILIP ELLIOTT, Associated Press, Oct. 12


ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Sarah Palin told voters in southeastern Ohio on Sunday that she and running mate John McCain would bring jobs back to this economically depressed piece of Appalachia. Using her folksy appeal, Palin highlighted her record as mayor of a city about the size of this small one near the West Virginia border.

She said Democratic rival Barack Obama doesn't understand places like this. "I love 'Small Town USA' because hardworking, good American (families), you just get it," Palin said while standing on a stage with an open barn as her backdrop. "It's kind of like those simple lessons our parents used to teach us: Don't spend more than you have," Palin said. "It's that commonsense conservatism that is John McCain. ... American just cannot afford another big spender in the White House."

McCain and his running mate have toned down their attacks on rival Barack Obama. Last Monday, Palin said Obama was "palling around with terrorists." On Friday, after voters at campaign rallies shouted "terrorist" and "off with his head" toward the stage, McCain called Obama "a decent, family man" whom the public shouldn't fear and cut off a woman who called him an Arab.

On Sunday, one man shouted out "Obama loves terrorists" as Palin talked about "the bad guys."

The character attacks, it appears, are now out of Palin's stump speech as the economy has become the issue on which this election will be decided. "All across America, I know that there's a lot of anger right now," Palin said. "There's anger about the insider dealing of lobbyists. And anger at the greed of Wall Street. And anger about the arrogance of the Washington elite."

"That's right. Throw them out," a voter shouted.

"We need serious reforms to change Washington. John McCain is going to turn your anger into action," Palin promised. She also noted her opponents' records on abortion rights, an issue key to social conservatives who initially were lukewarm toward McCain's campaign but have found enthusiasm after the pick of Palin. "I'm not being negative. But please check out his record," Palin said, referencing Obama's pro-abortion rights positions.

A man in the crowd shouted, "Killer!"

As McCain met with his economic team to consider new proposals, Palin emphasized the kitchen-table issues that dominate this small town, where farmers work the rolling hills and the streets are filled with shuttered small businesses. "The smell of the hay, the smell of the cut grass is just beautiful," Palin said, noting this town is about the same size as her hometown of Wasilla, Alaska.

by Scott Conroy, CBS News, Oct. 12


(ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio) - At an outdoor rally in this rural town in coal country, Sarah Palin told a cheering crowd that one of the reasons they should support her and John McCain is that the Republicans know that terrorists are “the bad guys.” “We understand how important it is that this team be elected,” Palin said. “For one thing, we know who the bad guys are, OK? We know—we know that in the war, it’s terrorists, terrorists who hate America and her allies and would seek to destroy us, and the bad guys are those who would support and sympathize with the terrorists. They do not like America because of what we stand for: liberty, freedom, equal rights.”

Palin extrapolated her “good guys vs. bad guys” outlook into the realm of economic policy, promising to end “arrogant and selfish practices” in government and business. “Now in the economic crisis that we’re in, we know there, too, who the bad guys are,” she said. “In this time of economic crisis, we know it’s been those who have been greedy and corrupt and arrogant and have taken advantage of hardworking honest Americans. And just as important though, we know who the good guys are, and it is you, and we will fight for you, and we will put government on your side. We will end the arrogant and the selfish practices of Washington and of Wall Street because your United States government is to be of the people, by the people, for the people.”

"We know who the bad guys are, ok?" This is not the level of rhetoric I expect from someone running for the 2nd highest office in the land. Implying that your opponent is a terrorist sympathizer is bad enough (will someone finally, and quite publically, call her out on this ridiculous bunk?), but when "well we know who the bad guys are" is your retort... quite frankly I'd expect better from high school students.

This is where Joe Biden points to George Bush and says "91% of the time, ladies and gentlemen."

I was thinking that during the last debate when McCain started going on about small government and cutting spending. I think it’s so blindingly obvious that Republicans completely take their guns’n’god’n’god bless America base for a ride, whip them up for votes once every four years and totally ignore them otherwise, but I don’t really think that’s all that interesting because, lets be honest, they’re best left ignored. I do think though that the more intelligent end of the Republican spectrum by now must surely not be sitting there taking the small government/cut spending promises seriously anymore. And if not, just how many times will a Republican candidate have to get up there and go on and on about that only to do the exact opposite on a record scale before Republicans WILL stop believing it?

Palin drops puck to boos, cheers

Filed Under: 2008, Palin

From NBC/NJ's Matthew E. Berger
PHILADELPHIA -- A healthy mix of boos and cheers greeted Palin last night as she dropped the ceremonial first puck for the Philadelphia Flyers season -- with an assist from her youngest daughter.

For days, blogs and Web sites had suggested Palin’s appearance would be met mostly with jeers. But Palin received a mixed reaction as she joined the winner of the team’s “Ultimate Hockey Mom” contest, Cathy O’Connell from Erdenheim, Pa.

Perhaps it was Palin’s youngest daughter, Piper, who emerged with her in a Flyers jersey, which helped mollify the crowd. The Alaska governor had even foreshadowed the tactic earlier in the day.

“I’ve been warned that Flyers fans, they get so enthused, that they boo everybody at the drop of the puck,” she said at a Philadelphia fundraiser Saturday afternoon. “But what I thought I’d do is I’d put Piper in a Flyers jersey, bring her out with me. How dare they boo Piper!”

Palin stepped from the team tunnel and out onto a black carpet with Piper and middle daughter Willow and walked across center ice. Some fans clapped, while others booed or held their thumbs pointed down. She shook hands with O’Connell and Flyers captain Mike Richards, and gave a kiss to Rangers assistant captain Scotty Gomez, a native Alaskan.

Palin knelt down, posed for photos with the players and O’Connell and dropped the puck with her simultaneously. She then shook the players’ hands again and walked off into the tunnel.

Palin watched part of the game in a skybox and also gave interviews to Comcast SportsNet and ESPN.
stay classy, Ms. Palin.

Philly fans boo those who earn it. She earned it.

I'm pissed that Ed Snider would try to make a political statement here, but then again I'm not a big Snider fan or Palin fan, so I'm biased anyway.

Lucky for her, they played the music as she entered at a very high volume so you could barely here the noise on the ice. According to people actually in the crowd though, it was mostly boos with a few cheers.

Can you pick out the key word?

Obama would not get booed like Sarah Palin got booed. That's not snark, that's reality.
