McCain Sucks, Palin Sucks = No Bush left behind

Archive for November 2008

Everyone has something to be thankful for even Sarah Palin.

Before I continue, let me just say I AM SO THANKFUL THAT THE MCCAIN-PALIN TICKET SUCKED. That campaign made so many blatant mistakes, we’re thrilled that the American people are not all Joe the Plumbers.

Palin does have much to be thankful for. Count the ways.


Before Bush leaves office (still counting the days and hours) he’s probably going to do a whole lot of executive damage.

What we never expected is the Citi Bank bailout.

Why Citi Bank? Why Citi Group?

Could it be that Citi bank has ties to Saudia Arabia?  Bush just loves those Saudis. Wouldn’t you just love to see the Bush family financial records? Somebody beyond those Lear Jet flying CEOs are benefiting from this deal.

Here’s a typical Sarah Palin sentence:

“Talking with complete sentences there and also too talking in a way that ordinary Americans like Joe the Plumber and Tito the Builder can’t really do there, I think needing to do that isn’t tapping into what Americans are needing also,” she said.

But for us lovers of prose and complete sentences — every time Obama speaks…it’s like a symphony of words.

We were hoping that after the election (“Yay Obama!”) that we wouldn’t have to post here anymore. After all, this blog was to trash McCain so he wouldn’t get elected. Turns out, his campaign and Palin trashed him much more than we could. Now he’s yesterday’s news, and Sarah Palin just won’t go away, damnit!

Whether it’s Margaret Carlson reporting on the meetings of the Republican Governors Association, and saying “everyone knows a camera is to Palin as cheese is to a mouse” or Dick Cavett calling her “The Wild Wordsmith of Wasilla”, she’s been in the news every day since McCain announced her in late August.

The fascination with Palin is like driving past a car wreck. The first impulse is to not look, then you take a peek while driving past. Then you jerk your head in horror and move on. . .

I CAN’T STAND TO REPORT THIS. It makes me SICK. But I’m going to, because it deserves to be reported. Sarah Palin has been blamed by the Secret Service for provoking a spike in death threats against US President-elect Barack Obama.

“During the bitter election campaign, the Alaskan governor had questioned Obama’s patriotism and accused him of “palling around with terrorists”, citing his links with the sixties radical William Ayers.

“Palin’s demagogic tone may have unintentionally encouraged white supremacists to plan attacks on the future president of the US.

“The Secret Service warned the Obama family last month that they had seen a dramatic surge in threats against the Democratic leader, coinciding with Palin’s attacks, the Daily Telegraph newspaper has reported.

This is a beautiful tribute to being in a ballroom when the Jumbo-tron flashed Obama as President.

Arizona may still have gone red but Pima County is still a strong blue. Arizona is a changing just like so many other western states.

Go Obama!


An angry McCain aide characterized the Palin shopping spree as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast…”

Apparently MORE than $150,000 was spent on clothes for Sarah. First Dude got some duds too, to the tune of $20,000 – $40,000!!

NEWSWEEK REPORTS……… Palin’s shopping spree at high-end department stores was more extensive than previously reported. <snip> One senior aide said that Nicolle Wallace had told Palin to buy three suits for the convention and hire a stylist. But instead, the vice presidential nominee began buying for herself and her family—clothes and accessories from top stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus. <snip> One aide estimated that she spent “tens of thousands” more than the reported $150,000, and that $20,000 to $40,000 went to buy clothes for her husband. Some articles of clothing have apparently been lost.

We were concerned that after Obama was elected we wouldn’t have anything to write about. With Palin and her shenanigans, looks like we’ll be busy for quite some time.
