She's right for once. Tomorrow's election will transform the Republican party into either a centrist party, run by businessmen, or a vast horde of retarded Seniors and Boomers; hell bent on picking America's bones clean leaving their children and grand children to root away.

Well there's your problem right there.

So Sarah says that Hannity is corrupt? How does Sean feel about this?

Much like my grandma's opinion of "So-damn Insane" since 1991, Sarah still finds this to be clever.

What is a "right drag"? Is that something I need to study out?
 
2012-11-05 12:50:40 PM  
What the hell kind of answer was that?

Was she just throwing out random sentences?

What's with "lamestream" media? Hasn't anyone told her that people who use that word are just looked at as if they are morons?

This is your doing, Mr McCain. You're a bad, bad man. She's your Sarah Boo Boo.

People through the example of the storm they cannot put their hope and their faith in government. They can't put their faith in some politician. They've got to be self-sufficient and dependent on something greater than some politician in Washington, D.C. So, that's a lesson learned in this.

"But Tuesday night, you know, I think that many, many people across America who perhaps before wanted to put their hope and their faith in Obama's false promises have awakened and we may be up late Tuesday night as Sen. John McCain said earlier on a Fox program, I agree with that. But I do believe that enough Americans have awakened and understand that it is time for a shift, a fundamental transformation not of our country but a transformation of what we perhaps had previously believed in, in the name of politics so that we can get America back on the right drag."


I went to Alaska a few months ago. Amazing place. Huge. It was neat to read about some of the history at the various places I went to. I enjoyed reading about how the Army surveyed the state and helped miners and oilmen find the best places to go. I enjoyed reading about how the Alaskan railroad was the only railroad financed entirely by the Federal Government. I enjoyed reading about the military presence that helped get the state going, bringing in farmers and helping them to try to get farms growing. I loved seeing how most communities were tied together by airplanes- roads didn't connect the entire state. And everyone relied on the goods coming into port that were distributed by airplane across the great wondrous state.

If there was ever a state that required people to work together to carve out a living, a culture, an advanced existence, it would be Alaska.

I respect people who live up there. I do. But she's a f*cking idiot if she really believes any of this. She should stick to fungible molecules; it is what she is best at.

Part of me has to hand it to Sarah Palin. It's amazing to see a card-carrying member of the Fark Derp Brigade™ go so far.

You do realize the business men designed this current the Republican party to farm seniors right? Any political clout they gain is secondary.

Listen, Romney is out there . . . He's been gathering Data, reading all the Lore, and B4 you know it, he'll unleash The Vision that's necessary to pull us all up by our bootstraps. He has a strong spine, ridiculously strong, in fact. It's almost as if all his bones have been adamantly reinforced with some sort of unbreakable metal. Every time Obooger lobs an attack at him, Romney will swat it back like an overhead smash by Bjorn Borg. It's just futile to resist Romney's charm! After all, he's a Bishop in his totally not weird Mormon Church, so who better to resurrect the economy from the Ashes of Obommunism? His superior intellect will help him augment our fighting forces that were nearly terminated when Obismal chose to invade Iraq and Afghanistan. Some of Romney's plans are too deep to even discus in this forum, but I can foresee three or four posters chiming in with questions about things that they can't understand. It's like you guys have nothing but bile come out of your mouths, but still you must scream in rage. I hope one day you bikome rational. I worry that some of you might get so depressed when Romney wins that one of you will pick up a razor blade, run it across your wrists as you sit in your mothers' basements. Luckily, Romney understands the nature of your medical emergencies, as long solutions are provided at the state level. Romney is an iron giant among men, but you Kos-kids just wanna rage against the machine; man, do I feel sorry for you. I know for sure that when Ann Romney is first lady, she won't try to force our precious little snowflakes to robotically exercise to Richard Simmons videos. Let's face it, the Obama's ideas are a danger to this nation, and their ideas will rob our sons and daughters of a wonderful future and leave them lost in space. Do we really want to keep wasting tax dollars on the Chevy Volt? RON PAUL, when he gets appointed as Romney's Secretary of the Treasury, will put an end to that sort of nonsense (once he's done crushinating the Federal Reserve). But hey, if you wanna keep supporting Obama because you think he's some sort of brainiac, that's fine. If that's the way you wanna go, bottoms up to you. In January 2013, Real Americans will be saying, "Thank you very much, Mr. Mitt Romney, for doing the job that nobody wants to."

Why? She was clearly taking a tongue-in-cheek jab at Hannity, and FOX news in general, commenting on how their partisan coverage has destroyed political discourse in this country. I mean, they both must realize that FOX has the single largest viewing base, by default making it "mainstream" [lamestream-HA!]?

It's just plain not nice to quote her words (not sentences) as spoken. As a long-time Alaskan, I gotta say that when even the Squarebanks News Miner is quoting her outpourings verbatim, her star has set. All praises to that higher power, whatever it be.

"But I do believe that enough Americans have awakened and understand that it is time for a shift, a fundamental transformation not of our country but a transformation of what we perhaps had previously believed in, in the name of politics so that we can get America back on the right drag."

In one respect, I believe Ms. Word Salad is right. We are seeing a shift in consciousness, but it's not the one Our Sarah thinks it is. Our comrades working on Occupy Sandy are doing amazing work in the community, leading relief efforts, helping rebuild and even serving as a first point of contact for FEMA and the National Guard in many places. Smaller relief efforts to take up the slack as the capitalist system gradually robs communities of things like libraries or schools have been staged across the country. Debt resistance is growing. Radical unions are growing and scoring wins for the workers while corporatist ones - ones that are "friendly to business" - are shrinking and failing.

The right-wing gravy train is nearing its end. The Cold War is a dying memory at this point and red-baiting is losing its power. Die-hard fascists among the white elderly are the last big bulwark against the left, but they're dying and we're just getting going.

Largest 24 cable news network by audience = Murdoch-owned Fox News Channel

Largest national newspaper by circulation = Murdoch-owned Wall Street Journal

Largest audience for political talk radio show = Rush Limbaugh (with Sean Hannity in second, and Glenn Beck and Mark Levin in the top 10).


The most amazing thing that the Right does, IMO, is continuously attack the "mainstream media," when, by any definition, they run the mainstream media.

She is still flopping around?

Weird. I swear I had read she had been attacked and dragged off by an angry bear or pulled out of her rowboat by a disgruntled rainbow trout angered at her stance against same sex spawning.

FTA: "Well, first, Sean, the media is so corrupt. That's what the bottom line is, the lamestream media."

I have never understood her saying this with a straight face while on Fox, a member of the mainstream media (whether you agree with Fox or not, they do qualify as MSM). It is like her saying "Vote for me as a politician because the bottom line is that all politicians are corrupt which is why I should be your politician" 

She really needs to stop drinking or ease up on the pills. Its the only reason I can come up with for a person who for over 5 years, has consistently lowered the bar with every appearance in print, tv or on the stump.
 
2012-11-05 02:09:10 PM

I understand it as a scent hunting dog training metaphor. To train dogs to follow a scent you use a "drag" that has been scent impregnated and drag it across some land. The path along which you dragged is called a "drag".

What I don't understand is why Palin thinks that citizens are like dogs that need to be trained to follow manufactured pretend trails.

This came out of a person's mouth. Not a random moron who flunked out of high school and barks at oncoming cars - someone who was governor of a state, and left that role of their own choice to run on the presidential ticket only four years ago. After hearing her wailing drivel for months, just shy of 60 million Americans wanted this person to be the Vice President, and went through the effort of affirming that decision in the electoral process.

Let that sink in for a moment.

You were too damn weak-willed to say F*CK OFF I WANT LIEBERMAN GOD DAMMIT AND I WILL HAVE HIM, NOT THIS DITZY QUEEN!! to your handlers after a younger and far more beaten down you told the VC rats in the Hanoi Hilton to go pound rotted rice and human fertilizer up their noses.

If the media is to be believed, McCain himself is the one who selected Palin. Granted, he'd only met her once, but he was already running behind, and he figured that she was the only available candidate who represented a possible "game changer". And she sure changed the game, didn't she?
 
2012-11-05 02:53:05 PM  
I wouldn't need Supe's powers, I'd just want to wake up one day with good strong telepathy.

All I wanna do is carefully re-adjust the perverted thingy in Mrs Palin's head that makes her talk in those insane gobbledeygook sentences.

I genuinely don't want to change anything else!!

I...just...want...her...to...talk...with...farking...NORMAL GODDAMMIT GRAMMAR.

Afterward I'd be perfectly happy to chitchat for an hour with her about anything at all, even her grocery list or what kinda tampons she likes to smoke when Todd ain't in the house.

And what kills even more are the media types and politicians who go to any length to talk about how smart the electorate is, but this the same group (or at least a portion of it) that will listen to this crap and actually think she is saying something of substance. When pressed to really explain what she supposedly is saying, that same bunch will hem and haw about lofty ideals of "freedom" and "personal responsibility" but cannot articulate it further than saying it loudly with a puffed chest.

No, a large swath of the American electorate is just plain stupid...or lazy....or both. Time and time again they prove that by chanting "USA USA USA" just because another person yells it in a microphone and then get all teary eyed at their sentimentality. All the while, absolutely nothing comes of it other than another political huckster gets to pat themselves on the back as they again, duped a chorus of idiots and got them to open their wallets. Pathetic.

Palins is just about the ultimate example of a politician turned media huckster who fans the flame of hatred and division then proclaims loudly the other side is doing so. She talks in circles and peppers her speeches with just enough sentimental catch phrases to get people to fund her next bus trip and probably mortgage payment. She is an incredible Political Snake Oil Salesman, so good that even after 5 years on the national stage, she still has an entire segment of the populace duped into thinking she is going to shake up the mainstream and become the next Ronald Reagan. Yet, she has delivered absolutely nothing. Zero. Nada.

The reality? She garners 6 figure contracts from Fox, takes money from voters with nary a thought, paints buses, muddies other elections and slides in at the end of various races to give her blessing only after the results are in the bag or the conservative winner was obvious from the outset. Yet, people line up to have their picture taken with her as if she actually gives a sh**t about them. What a bunch of morons.

And yes, this group of morons include a few members of my immediate family.
