Primum: Mentat: riverwalk barfly: Am I the only one? but does getting applause for sipping a big gulp or talking about your rack seem strange?   This is the reason we are doomed.   Not because of the black president.

From her?  No.  She's the epitome of bumper sticker politics.

She's also the William J. Le Petomane of bumpkin politics.


She's the ptomaine of politics.

JerseyTim: Bloomberg is a heckuva strawman for the CPAC crowd. I don't know a single liberal who embraces Bloomberg. I've never heard one say, "Hey, you know who I wish could be president in 2016? That guy!" Yet, these CPAC people act like they're making some major dig at liberals by attacking him.


After watching that, I couldn't help but think to myself most of the country's problems would be solved if Bloomberg announced he was going to push federal legislation banning cyanide.

KiltedBastich: Car_Ramrod: But, and correct me if I'm wrong, the sled dogs aren't competing against each other, they're helping each other to accomplish a common goal. I assume they're placed in that order for strategic reasons. Are there dog elections? I would think that would be a better analogy for a bitter VP.

Maybe I should stop taking stupid analogies so literally.


Oh indeed, it's a weird, farked-up analogy without anything but the most superficial resemblance to what happens in an election. But it sounds all Alaskan and folksy and stuff, so Palin's followers lap it up and bark for more. As long as I get to point and laugh while they derp on, I am perfectly happy to watch them continue to double down on the stupid.


Also, you have to sort of willfully ignore the fact that dogs generally, you know, ENJOY sniffing other dog butts.

Lost Thought 00: Seen any Scotsmen lately?


No, he's got a point; they aren't conservatives by any non-American definition. Much like how the American definition of "Liberal" seems to be "Anybody to the left of the WWII Axis Powers."

Hickory-smoked: Glenford: Stone Meadow: cause of the black president.

Wait...wut?! Sarah talked about her rack? This I gotta

He's got the rifle, I've got the rack

I can vividly picture the one speech writer who came up with that zinger.

There is no one on Earth creepier than a right-winger making sexual innuendoes.


Are you suggesting that Sarah didn't write her own speech? Next you'll tell me she was using a tele....uh never mind.

Jackpot777: "Do you actually recognize that most TV shows are actually more conservative? Do you guys watch Modern Family? OK. Have you not noticed that it's actually a very conservative TV show? Um, for instance: they do have, like, the gay couple. But the gay couple are married. And they have a kid. Which is a very conservative thing. They are pro-family, the whole thing is about family. The family structure, which is a very conservative value."


As a gay person who's been fighting tooth and nail against the Republicans for the right to get married, adopt a kid and raise a family:

From the "This Is What Conservatives At CPAC Actually Believe" Department...

"Do you actually recognize that most TV shows are actually more conservative? Do you guys watch Modern Family? OK. Have you not noticed that it's actually a very conservative TV show? Um, for instance: they do have, like, the gay couple. But the gay couple are married. And they have a kid. Which is a very conservative thing. They are pro-family, the whole thing is about family. The family structure, which is a very conservative value."

And THAT'S why they're for gay marriage. Wait, what? They're vehemently opposed to any thought of it, and they have the highest rates of divorce in the Bible Belt states? The Dickens, you say!

FTFA: Tea party activists have complained that after logging in to or making donations on TheTeaParty.net or related sites, they found themselves besieged with spam from precious metal dealers who'd been renting the group's email list through Newsmax. The group has repeatedly come under fire for raising lots of money from tea party groups but failing to spend much of it on politics, and has run afoul of the FEC. During the presidential campaign, it raised $1.2 million but spent only $52,000 on candidates. Much of its money gets spent on advertising, including many TV ads that run with a variety of different tea party names on gun and hunting shows. The Tea Party News Network sent out fundraising emails asking for donations to cover the $75,000 CPAC wireless bill.

I am shocked -- SHOCKED! -- to find that sleazy dealings are going on here!

FTF everyone. Ain't a goddamn thing conservative going on at CPAC. It's a Republican hate-bate fest.


I'm pretty sure they represent the conservative wing of the Republican Party.  They even served haggis.

/Is there some group of sane conservatives out there that didn't attend CPAC?
//Maybe they should have their own convention. . .

Yes, that's a Big Gulp. Palin was making a jab at New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg's proposed ban on big sugary sodas, which was struck down in court this week. "Bloomberg's not around," Palin said. "Don't worry." And the crowd went wild.

Because Bloomberg is the mayor of New York City, and your speech was in the state of Maryland.
