alienated: propasaurus: She's so over that no one really wanted this greenlit.

Indeed. -1 and I have not voted on this yet... like it matters at this point.
The repubs would have had a better chance having lisa ann, a pr0n star who portrayed her in at least one film on the ticket. she at least is smart enough to finish a scene

InmanRoshi: Pretty amazing how the GOP won't let their last VP nominee or their last sitting President within 5,000 miles of the convention center.


What they're showing is their lineup of power players for 2016 and for the next 8 to 12 years.

As much as I would like to say yes, the fact we are even discussing her implies the answer is no. She will really be over once people stop talking about her, kind of like Dukakis or Perot today.

Well, the thing is, there's no real policy difference now from then. So why don't they welcome those (like W and Cheney) who have successfully implemented Republican policies in the last decade?

whidbey: They've got 4 more years to reinvent them, fear not.


But the problem is they're not really reinventing anything. They look to Reagan, the champion of "trickle-down" economic theory, as a saint. They're still advocating bigotry as a party platform. They want to spend less on education, and they want to do away with the minimum wage and business regulations to "increase economic development".

The party platform hasn't really changed in decades, even after following the platform led to an economic collapse and resounding defeat in 2008. Why would they change things in four years?

And, given that outcome, it behooves them to package it differently next time. By then, everyone will have forgotten about the last makeover. I mean, you can't have another Reagan. They already threw him on the scrapheap.

But we can rebuild him....

whidbey: But we can rebuild him....


Let's not and say we did. He really wasn't one to care about the less fortunate, which is why all the tax revenues went to the military instead of to assistance programs and AIDS research. Sure, he won the Cold War, but the Soviet Union was going broke anyways, and he caused the modern addiction of military contractors sucking off the government teat. Bush Sr. could have torn down some of our own military when the Berlin Wall fell, but by then the addiction was paying for itself with the lobbyists funneling that same money right back into Washington.

Reagan was indeed a very popular President, but the negative impacts of his policies are still being felt even today.

Can't argue with that, we've never had a president who's parents weren't filthy rich and legacy entrances into the Ivy league colleges, ell maybe Washington but only because there were no Ivy leagues back then.

In this undated AP photograph, Michelle Obama is seen trying not to be noticed as she grabs a quick taco in the Hanceville Park Elementary School Cafeteria. Pundits have long suggested her work towards healthier school lunches might have something to do with her strange behavior of ducking into elementary school cafeterias unannounced, especially on Taco Tuesdays.

http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/palin-is-taco -->

Two weeks prior [prior to what?]on popular news aggregator FARK.com, a threadjack occurred in a Politics tab thread around 2AM by hungry Farkers posting images of tacos. Their unanimous love for tacos was one of only very few instances that FARK LibTards (liberals) and FARK ReTards (conservatives) have ever come to agreement on.

One week prior [prior to what?], a FARK Moderator entered into a thread where a threadjacking occurred concerning FARK ReTards trolling with 'moving the goalpost' logic,baiting, blatant racism, and using multiple 'alts', or alternative accounts to do so.

The moderator deleted multiple comments, some of which paired alts, fingering culprits, and some just plain outrage about the politics tab turning for the worse as election time gets closer. Farkers were sour at their comments being deleted and many of their questions went unanswered as the Moderator chose to just spam an automated message directing them to the FArQ, which didn't answer their questions either.

On August 31, 2010 in a thread about Sarah Palin, the trolls were at it again, so fed up one farker posted a picture of a taco.

The tacos in comments and pictures started popping up as the trolls kept trolling. New memes were being made, some of which incorporated both Sarah Palin and tacos, some referring to her vagina as a taco, as well as one which called out a specific user, which many FARK LibTards consider the King of the FARK ReTarded Trolls.

A FARK Moderator deleted the entirety of the taco memes, even the Palin incorporated ones. The thread went ablaze with fiery dissent over the removal. [citation needed] The Moderator that deleted the content engaged the angry Farkers, explaining that threadjacking and calling specific users out by user name is prohibited.

The discussion itself turned into a threadjack about threadjacking, threadshiatting, and trolls.

Farkers began complaining about how the Moderators protect the bait trolls, racist trolls, troll mods, and general thread stupidity. [citation needed] Farkers felt that if the trolls could threadjack to start arguments, why couldn't they do it in a way that was constructive and fun. Again, the FARK LibTards hadn't had all their questions answered to clarity, and this time there would be a food fight.

Tacos and Taco-Palin memes began popping up in other Sarah Palin threads first, followed by being reposted in the original thread they were taken down from. The assertion was made that Tacos had just as much to do with Politics as Sarah Palin ever since she left office for Showbiz. [citation needed] "Palin is to politics, as taco is to politics, except taco doesn't quit" posted one FARK LibTard. "Taco is Palin, Palin is Taco" posted another. The next day tacos, taco references, and new 'Palin is Taco' memes popped up.

On FARK.com, Sarah Palin, her vagina, trolls and mods alike are now met with taco's, because seriously, who doesn't like tacos?

Palin is Taco.

UPDATE: Meme has extended to incorporate turtles, creme brulee, grilled cheese, and popular anime Akira. [citation needed]

In this Reuters photograph taken Easter 2012, Michelle Obama is seen munching on a taco prepared outdoors on the East Lawn during the Annual White House Easter Egg Hunt. When asked for comment regarding this non-traditional choice of Easter Dinner, the First Lady replied, "Mexico is predominately Catholic. Easter is very big there."

FUN FACT: Washington was the only elected president without a party.

/I'm not nitpicking between any possible pre-Washington supposed short-term 'appointed presidents;' Washington was the first elected president, and he had no party flag.

Those happened instantly upon formation of a new country. :/

As far as I am concerned, it was all over for Sarah Palin when Ms. Abstinence Only Sex Education had to announce that her daughter got pregnant from absinence only. Or maybe got pregnant because of the ignorance engendered in Abstinence Only Sex Education. It was hypocrisy to the nth degree. Plus abstinence only was emblematic of the national enstupidification that George W Bush was leading us into. It took the rest of America a while to realize how empty she is, but that moment, I saw everything.
