An Illustrated Guide to Mendacity and Folly in the Imperium Americanum

The Rabble Hasn’t Been Roused Like This Since Nuremburg…

Young Obama

I’m sure you’ve all seen the clips. Sarah Palin at the rallies, misrepresenting Obama’s association with former Weatherman Underground member William Ayres, to cries of “Terrorist,” and “Kill him.” Does she stop and say, “Hey, none of that kind of talk”? Nuh-uh. It’s just what she wanted to elicit from the crowd. It’s what McCain wants her to elicit from the crowd. Kill him. If they weren’t running for President and Vice President themselves, they could be arrested for incitement to violence, because that’s exactly what they are doing. They’re trying to incite violent hatred against Obama–you know, “THAT ONE”–possibly enough to get people to patrol the polling places and issue challenges against black and Hispanic voters, trying to intimidate them. Maybe more. Hell, when Sarah Palin heard “kill him”, she had a chance to show her true mettle. And she did. She let it ride. Are they trying to get Obama assassinated before November 4? It sure as hell looks like it. Maybe that’s the only way McCain thinks he can win.

In the meantime, check out Paris Hilton’s latest campaign video at funnyordie.com,(/A> ably assisted by Martin Sheen, her most admired fake President. You know, she’d make a better President than either John McCain or Sarah Palin. Hey, she got Charlie’s fake vote…

Hey, I Spent Five and a Half Years at the Hanoi Hilton Without Cheese…


Suspend the debates so you can fly back to Washington and help with the economic crisis when you’ve already admitted economics is not your strong suit? In the meantime, blowing off Dave Letterman so you can show up on news shows? How Presidential!

Here are the lyrics (to the tune of the Mighty Mouse theme song):

Banking crises never hang around, when they hear this mighty sound:
“Here I come to save the day,” that means Mighty Mack is on the way.
Bama-Rama has to sit and wait, there will be no great debate
Dave will get no sucking up, “I’m in DC, f…… MUCKing up!”

Though we know we have big problems, we never have fear,
We know long after they’re solved, he’ll appear!
We’re not worrying at all, unless we hear that mighty call:
“Here I come to save the day!” Goddammit, Mighty Mack is ON THE WAY!

Don’t Criticize Her, Either Or She’ll Have Your Boss Fired

Don’t Criticize Her, Either Or She’ll Have Your Boss Fired

I guess that’s how they vetted her–they had so little time between finding out the Democratic Party hadn’t split down the middle and McCain’s announcement, they must’ve depended on an Internet public records site 🙂 And her 70 question form. Of course, since she’s a Republican, she can’t admit she’s ever done anything wrong until she’s caught, so naturally she came out clean as a whistle in her own mind. We can’t criticize her about anything either–the new Republican strategy–find someone with a personal tragedy–a kid with Down’s Syndrome? — to ensure that hard questions never get asked. Look at McCain. How many houses do you have, John? Well, if you had spent 5-1/2 years at the Hanoi Hilton, you wouldn’t know how many houses you had either. I like the way Laura Bush tried to imply that any criticism of Sarah by the Democratic Party would be sexist–even though they all BUT nominated Hillary Clinton and if she had not had a strong opponent in Barack Obama, she very well might have been the Democratic candidate. But, I guess they’ve thrown in the towel on the experience issue. After all, Obama MUST have enough experience if the person the Republicans have selected as Plan B has even less. My goodness, the town she was mayor of had less population than the little burg in New Jersey I grew up in and the entire state of Alaska’s population could be fit into Little Rock, Arkansas. I guess there was nearly a war in the Aleutians tho–she must have gotten foreign policy experience somewhere. (I’ve stolen a few of these talking points from somewhere on the net I can’t remember right now).But check out the Talking Points Memo for some of Sarah’s other qualifications

It seems Louisiana was spared a repeat of Katrina, which was OK because George Bush had no intention of getting any closer than San Antonio. It DID rain on McCain’s parade tho 🙂
