We loved Sarah. She made us come alive. She was our only hope.
She was a princess in shining armor. We sent money because of her.

Alas, she just didn't have enough to get McLame over the fence.
No one could have done any better.
McLame was not to be president no matter what.

The powers behind n0bama were well underway and is still going strong.

I work with a bunch of old engineers, and most are Republicans. They were all about McCain, but Palin scared them a lot. I think the election would have been much closer if Palin hadn't been in the mix.

I suppose she was, Dick, but I would argue that everything you and your repugnant administration did from 2001 - 2009 was the real mistake.

McCain wasn't a bad choice though. He had an "outsider" reputation, and when he behaved himself he could come across as an elder statesman; defending Obama was an example. Unfortunately for the Republican hopes he had a temper, and Palin.

Romney asking someone to be his VP is like loading a pistol completely, handing it to a person, and saying "Let's play Russian Roulette - I like our chances. You first."

Best part is that the eventual nominee will be whomever lacks the intestinal fortitude to reject such a death sentence. I could see Pawlenty weakly accepting it, "Golly, I'll take any chance to serve my country."

The real men are waiting it out for 2016, which will be one of the widest open fields for the GOP in recent times.

McCain wasn't a bad choice. It was the fact that he picked the same people Bush picked in 2000 and 2004 that was the mistake.

After 8 years of disappointment by the Republicans. You don't double down on that disappointment.

Difference is, most people knew Palin was a mistake within the first month that she entered the public consciousness. We didn't know about Cheney until he's already in office.

She got both my parents to vote Obama, and they both voted for Bush in '04. They were solidly McCain until she started opening her mouth. She sealed the deal for me to vote Obama. I had been leaning that way, but the lack of experience was hard to swallow, until the alternative suddenly became scary as hell.

Of course. The problem was the respected elder statesman with a reputation as a straight-shooter, not the incompetent AW who couldn't name a single newspaper she reads and thinks proximity to Russia somehow translates into foreign policy experience.

/I do think you're right about one thing -- McCain has become a doddering old fool.

I have happy moments now and then when things like this come up. I imagine Sarah, reading about her fellow conservatives now throwing her under the bus with such vigor, and it brings me happiness. I have no doubt that she sees every one of these, because you just know pays someone to find every article that mentions her name--it's probably all she reads which is why her answer to Katie Couric was "All of them." One by one, even the most die-hard right-wingers are stepping back, pointing out that the emperor has no clothes (and is a moron, too), then distancing themselves from her so quickly there's smoke coming off their shoes.

And each time it happens, she knows she is one step closer to not just irrelevance, but the kind of mocked irrelevance that is normally reserved for guys like Billy Carter.

I am truly heartened knowing that her gravy train will most certainly come to its last stop, penniless and pitiful, at which point she will have to examine the ruins of her life from Nowheresville, Alaska, and realize that she did more to hurt America than anyone since Lee Harvey Oswald.

The bigger list includes politicians who want to be viewed as under consideration to boost their standing. Cheney says a second, much shorter list contains those who are actually being considered.

Guess which list she is on.

Completely moot since McCain didn't have the balls to actually take on Obama to begin with. Trying to siphon off some percentage of women voters was nothing more than desperation.

He didn't have to lie since Obama had little experience but it was obvious he was more afraid of being branded racist if he challenged him more vigorously. To his credit, he was right that at least the allegations would fly.

2008 was the somewhat dull, moderate elder statesman vs. the hype of personality with no experience. I was surprised the margin of victory wasn't larger.

Big farking deal. Wake me when he or any of the pundits blast someone currently holding office that says shiat as dumb or as hateful as Palin. Michelle Bachmann anyone? She ought to be kicked off all her committees and censured by the House for her most recent bullshiat.

Palin's about as relevant as my taint these days in terms of political clout. The dullard was posing in a chick fil a yesterday while dressed like some redneck visiting Branson, MO for farks sake. Way to take a stand, Cheney!

The real question is whether the GOP triples down on the derp during the primary period, or finally recovers its senses enough to let the tea party break off.

Surely all Republican elections are going to be like this - one or other wing of the Republican party (plutocrat or theocrat) will win the nomination, and then have to pick a VP from the opposite side to get at least some of the other wing not to stay home, knowing that some of the more marginal voters in the original bloc will be turned off by it, but hoping to get more from the VP's wing of the party turning up to offset that loss.

If Obama wins there will a huge backlash of derp. Remember the last time he won? Yeah, we ended up with the Tea Party. And they're going to be even angrier this time. There's going to be a tidal wave of whaargarbl, and will be up to the GOP to reign it in. Otherwise, the 2016 primary could be an even bigger clown show than this time around.

Most credible sites have it something like 332 Obama and 206 Romney right now. That's electoral votes. By 2016 the current Republican party will be #3 in most of the populous states and sinking fast, not really worth notice. White, old and rich is not the key to electoral survival.

The way Fox News is going, they've got people ready to yell "To arms! To arms!" if Obama wins. There are a lot of tea partiers who have been convinced Obama wants to come for their guns are are expecting a civil war to start if he gets re-elected. I put most of the blame for this mentality squarely at the feet of Fox News. If they can't reign in the rhetoric during/after the election, things could honestly become dangerous.

Not to mention the only use Cheney has to the party nowadays is to say the shiat nobody else with a future wants to say. He's lucky he's not being treated like Dubya where he simply does not exist anymore.

But all of this is just a sad attempt to pander to moderates. It's the typical Republican abusive boyfriend tactic: yeah, this time they've changed, they've learned their lesson, and will do the same thing just went you take them back. The fact they chose Cheney is because nobody will farking believe it.

So you farking retards finally realized four or eight years under Obama isn't the end of the world? I don't buy it. That would require foresight, rationality and dropping the urge to cry every time things don't go your way. How could your pussy party even survive without every thing that happens being the death knell of this country as we know it. That's your whole platform. The party that cried wolf wasted their fear when normal people kept waking up day after day and realized none of these had happened and began laughing at how ridiculous you are.

it takes balls to sit around all day eating delicious vietnamese soup and occasionally being poked with pointy bamboo? when you could otherwise be sneaking thru the jungle all day killing brown people and hoping that brown people don't kill you? do people who have no balls just implode under those conditions, or what? maybe we were safer when women weren't allowed to be combatants.

SevenizGud: basemetal: Meh, after the last eight years of GWB, the dems could have run a blue goose and won that election.

And instead they nominated the guy that would lead to an historic loss of house seats in the off-year election...so much so that the GOP took control of the House of Representatives.

You Dems keep up with teh Fartbongo and Igor ticket, and I'll enjoy my filibuster-proof senate and GOP house in 2014. Then in 2016 well elect a GOP president, have a GOP house, a filibuster-proof GOP senate, and 8 of 9 on the supreme court in 2018.

I really DO have hope for Fartbongo. Go Fartbongo go.

Bush doesn't have much reason to regret picking Cheney. There was evidently some tension later on when Cheney was defending people and policies that Bush had finally realized needed to be let go, but what did that amount to? Demoting Cheney from practically co-president to regular vice president?

Nobody from W's gang of incompetent scumbags has the right to pass judgment on anyone. What those neocon creeps managed to get away with makes Watergate look like child's play. Just because the American public lost its appetite for prosecution of corruption doesn't change the fact that Cheney and Company deserve to be sitting in prison cells right now.

No fan of Palin by any stretch, but her place in history will be something of a sideshow footnote. Cheney has blood on his hands. There is a difference.

I'm not one to defend Mitt, but that's just stupid. Mitt began running for office state and national office in 1994 and was governor of Massachusetts for four years.

Being the governor of a state with one of the top 10 metros in the nation gives you more political experience than being the governor of the 3 least populous state in the nation... in the same way Rudy Guiliani would have gained more political experience as the mayor of NYC than, oh, let's say Becky Ames, mayor of Beaumont, TX.

And, yes, running for political office counts as political experience. You're focused on world events, making plans, formulating stances, "playing politics", e.t.c. It's not the BEST experience, sure, but at least you can reasonably expect to learn why North and South Korea are different countries in the process.

Now, this isn't to say Mitt is greatly experienced. He isn't. Not by a long shot. He's less experienced, in my opinion, than President Obama was when he was elected, and that was the major attack point throughout the campaign. Rmoney is, however, a sight better choice than Sarah Palin if all you're focusing on is experience.

Palin is the single thing that got my father to vote for Obama.

I doubt Palin has cancer. She does have an eating disorder, however. It fits with her type: she's getting older and is in the public eye. Chances are she's binging and purging to compete with her daughters for the spotlight. Keep in mind that her competition nowadays is on Fox News and their stable of leather-skinned bottle blondes one sunburn away from looking from Grandpa Sawyer from Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The sad thing is that she might be having a lot of plastic surgery over the next few years, turning her from a normalish looking woman into a freak.

Gotfire: I think she is aging badly and with menopause & Boniva around the corner you can expect it to accelerate. She may also may have some eastern european genetics in play and the babushka bomb is exploding.


Not to mention she seems the type to self-medicate and not learn from her mistakes. Who wants to think she's still behaving like she's in high school with all that abuse? Especially since most of her popularity comes from her looks?

CDP [TotalFark]
2012-07-29 07:38:10 PM
Palin is "ready" to balance a budget - since she did it in Alaska.

Palin is "ready" to increase benefits for our esteemed elders while cutting out wasteful spending existing all across our federal government - since she did similar things in Alaska.

Palin is "ready" to call out entrenched special interests like she did when she served up a little justice to the Republican Party's good old boys and their dealings with big oil. She did that in Alaska, too.

Palin's "ready" to unabashedly call out Barack Obama. This includes pointing out his past associations, his reckless squandering of billions of our dollars to pay back his Wall Street friends (just as Bush/Cheney once did), and his plans to whip Americans into Greece-like big-government submission. This is in contrast to the establishment's plans to hold back.

Palin's "ready" to endorse countless candidates for the Congress. She's been successful at using her enormous grassroots influence to pull a great deal of them across the finish line.

Palin's not ready to fall in line with the establishment. Until any candidate (including our perceived "front-runner") demonstrates a full willingness to truly unify with the party's grassroots, don't count on her to make deals behind closed doors or hold high-priced fundraisers at her home.

Yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. Romney has been a serious contender in races for US Senate (giving a legendary Democrat his closest race ever in an extremely blue state), the Republican nomination for the presidency twice, and has been operating under the auspices of being the "next in line" for four years. So, I equate him with two candidates who never seriously had a chance at any office they ran for, not to mention a complete lack of any real campaigning infrastructure.

I can see, logically, how you could come to that conclusion.

Soni: no, McCain was the mistake... Palin was the only thing that kept that doddering old fool in the race.


LOL.

the opposite of charity is justice: The bigger list includes politicians who want to be viewed as under consideration to boost their standing. Cheney says a second, much shorter list contains those who are actually being considered.

Guess which list she is on.


The list of those who would actually be up to being a decent president were it necessary, unlike the others.

How DARE he talk about St. Sarah like that! Real Americans everywhere hate "Dick" Cheney.

These are great days. We have Cheney saying Palin was a mistake, we got that crazy global warming DENIER guy now saying the science was sound, and the phenomenon is real, and we got Sandy Weill saying banking really SHOULD be re-regulated - separated back into the investment and the consumer sectors.

Republican wheels are falling off.

Corvus: Romney has LESS political experience then Sarah Palin had!! And he is at the top of the ticket!!

If you think Sarah Palin wasn't experienced enough how the hell can you vote for Romney?


Well, on the one hand, he was governor of a much larger state (Boston alone has almost as many people as all of Alaska). And on the other hand, he's desperately trying to keep his own party's voters from remembering that, so it's kind of a wash.

sdd2000: Ed Finnerty: Romney asking someone to be his VP is like loading a pistol completely, handing it to a person, and saying "Let's play Russian Roulette - I like our chances. You first."

Yes but it is a semi-auto not a revolver.


Remeber: it's "throw the pin, drop the grenade! Ready? Go!"

dr_blasto: Cheney was a mistake, too.


Cheney was VP for 8 years and maybe even was calling most of the shots. Not the same kind of mistake.

Guntram Shatterhand: Magorn: Not for nothing, but if this is a recent Palin Photo:
[www.trbimg.com image 600x431]

then she's wither gone on a crash diet, is suddenly aging very badly, or has something seriously wrong with her (like cancer level wrong-god forbid)
compare to just 4 years ago:

[msnbcmedia2.msn.com image 474x332]

I doubt Palin has cancer. She does have an eating disorder, however. It fits with her type: she's getting older and is in the public eye. Chances are she's binging and purging to compete with her daughters for the spotlight. Keep in mind that her competition nowadays is on Fox News and their stable of leather-skinned bottle blondes one sunburn away from looking from Grandpa Sawyer from Texas Chainsaw Massacre.


I'm seeing what Tom Wolfe called "The Social X-Ray"

contrapunctus: Mugato: Cheney did more to fark up this country than even the moronic Palin could have accomplished.

So much this.

Nobody from W's gang of incompetent scumbags has the right to pass judgment on anyone. What those neocon creeps managed to get away with makes Watergate look like child's play. Just because the American public lost its appetite for prosecution of corruption doesn't change the fact that Cheney and Company deserve to be sitting in prison cells rotting in unmarked open trenches after having been executed by firing squad for High Treason right now.


FTFY.

Add to that list any Congressman or U.S. Senator or VCP or President who has taken or signed any oath or pledge other than the Oath or Affirmation for that specific office in the Constitution, which that person by word or action holds higher than the Constitutional Oath or Affirmation of Office, or would in any way affect or impact what s/he does in office.

This most expressly includes any and all Congressmen and Senators who have signed Grover Norquist's seditionous pledge.

No fan of Palin by any stretch, but her place in history will be something of a sideshow footnote. Cheney has blood on his hands. There is a difference.

More due to lack of opportunity than any lack of willingness to get blood on her hands on Palin's part. She was and is a card-carrying member of arguably thee single most extreme Christian Theocracy cult, one who thinks that the Dominion Theologists, New Apostolic Reformation, and even Christian Reconstructionism (which has as its stated goal the repeal of the Constitution and replacing it with the Mosaic Law ― all of it ― yes, even Deuteronomy 21:18−21 [their founder, Rousas John "R. J." Rushdoony, explicitly justified why that specific passage should indeed be the Law of the Land in an interview that was aired nationwide on a talk radio program] as well as Deuteronomy Chapter 13), don't go nearly far enough.

I speak of the Third Wave of the Holy Spirit (the "Jesus Camp" people!), aka "Joel's Army" (their nickname for themselves, in "honor" of the devouring army of locusts prophesied in Joel Chapter 2, which they identify themselves as being). Their express goal is to force the horrific End Times prophecies of the Bible to come true by any means necessary. Since many End Times people have identified many of the Biblical End Times plagues with the symptoms of a nuclear war, you can see where this would lead and why no such person should ever be allowed anywhere near the Red Button / Red Phone / Nuclear Football, especially not the heartbeat of an elderly twice-melanoma-patient (far and away the deadliest form of skin cancers) away from them.

Palin in on video (available on YouTube) being anointed by the laying on of hands by an extremist literally witch-hunting (he hunted women in Uganda for being witches) African minister named Pastor Murthee after her nomination as McCain's running mate, specifically to take over and lead the USA "back to" (their version of) Jesus. These people were absolutely sure that the nomination of one of their own as V.P. to a senior citizen twice-melanoma-sufferer President was the Manifest Will of God, that God would ensure their victory over Obama (or Hillary, had she been the Democratic nom), and then God would "take McCain home" and Palin would be President, leading America "back to" (their incredibly extremist version of) Christianity (which of course didn't even remotely exist in the time of the Founders).

Now you know why so many of the more vocal fright-wingers mockingly call Obama "The Anointed One [or Messiah, which translates to The Anointed One] of the Democrats / Liberals / Socialists / Commies." Sour grapes. They really did have their own Anointed One, only the unthinkable happened: she lost! Despite it being so obviously the Will of Almighty God that she win and rule America in His name. (This is also why they think he's The Antichrist ― who else could thwart the Manifest Will of Almighty God, even temporarily!?)

Remember when she in all seriousness suggested that we should nuke Russia over their handling of the Georgian rebellion? Now you know why!

Cheney had vast numbers of people killed to fatten his own wallet and those of his buddies. Palin would've killed far more, causing vast devastation and perhaps bringing down modern civilization itself, in the sincere and fanatical belief that she was doing the Will of God as His Anointed. Which is worse?
