Did Sarah Palin get a boob job?  I can't find any confirmation, but there are pics where it appears her chest grew after the '08 campaign.

AtlanticCoast63: Graffito: Mugato: Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential candidate, has offered unsolicited advice
Her? Offering unsolicited advice? Teh hell you say!
/she's looking pretty rough these days

One might even say that she looks ... tired.

Well played, Graffito....well played.

As for myself, I should point out that although I'm NOT defending Sarah's words - even THINKING about nukes in a matter like this is beyond insane and deserves a biatchslapping of Biblical proportions - she is right to the extent that we are slowly dismantling the deterrent.  There has been a lot of talk about making the ICBM force go away, especially after the performance of the launch crews over the last few years.  The bomber force is now down to the B-2s and the B-52s (the B-1s are non-nuclear capable by treaty and can't be made so again without long refits) and the missile subs are due to be replaced in the late 2020s, but some of them may be decommed long before that due to maintenance and age issues.  Let's face it - there's going to be people who will try to pull things if they think they won't have to face the ultimate sanction.  This isn't one of those times, but it's possible.


How many nukes, exactly, do you think we need?  One for every major city in the world, plus ever minor one?

SlothB77: I'm glad the Democrats are here to show us how to treat women.


I am so glad republicans are around to make comments on how hot she is, cause what women really desire is to know that looks are considered more important than intelligence or experience.

You can read right?  Here's the full text of the Budapest Memorandum.  Can you find for me any promise of protection you half with warmongering neocon twatwaffle?

http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Ukraine._Memorandum_on_Security_Assura nc es

The point still stands.  If Ukraine could actually count on us going to war for them, it'd be much safer.

We used to go to war for our allies.  We've grown so weak under liberals.

Really?  Ukraine is an ally?  When did that happen?  You mean like Georgia?

Close enough.  The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Any excuse to attack Russia, really.


You realize we signed virtually the same agreement with Jordan right?  If Israel gets a little fast and loose with it's borders, do we have to attack Israel and defend Jordan?

On top of that, Ukrainian weaponry keeps showing up in Afghanistan to help our enemies kill us.  If my enemy's enemy is my friend, my enemy's friend must be my enemy no?

Of course not!  Israel is one of the good guys.  As for terrorists getting Ukrainian weapons, well, we can invade Ukraine later, to make sure they stay safe, if we need to.

Anyway, this is all piffle.  Doesn't anyone remember the cold war?  Good guys versus bad guys?

And, when it ended, the promise of a world led by us, the good guys?  A New American Century.

People like Sarah Palin remember.  They remember when we were the good guys.  The shining city on the hill.

Not cynics like you.

Failing to show peace through strength has allowed some ''very, very, very bad dudes [to] gain ground'', said Ms Palin, who remains a darling of the far-right.


 Jesus.   She just doesn't know anything.  Is this really the best she could come up with?

At least she's willing to stand up to Putin, Obama's a castrated weasel who would rather appease him.

bobothemagnificent: [img.fark.net image 233x216]


Hillary comparing Putin's takeover of Crimea to Hitler's takeover of Sudetenland shows her poor grasp of history, but comparing Obama's reaction to Putin to Chamberlain's reaction to Hitler is somehow spot-on?

I'd suggest that the cognitive dissonance should be palpable, but then I remembered that, odds are, conservatives can't actually tell us what Chamberlain did and with regards to what event.

Real Americans.


As opposed to those fake Americans? Meh. We're pretty hemmed into following Europes lead on this one so it's become a rhetorical dick waving contest. I seem to remember Obama leveling criticism of Bush policies that he gleefully embraced once he sat in the captians chair. Things look differently when your in the hot seat. This type of hyperbolic rhetoric is not unusual for either party to spout in the run up to an election.

Anybody want to do the math to see how long it would take, and the mission profile of a TU-160/ Tu-22 (yes I know they are naval attack) raid to dart across the pole with a thermobaric weapon payload to attack NY, TO and DC? How about nerve gas?

The United States has never fought a war with a country with that kind of conventional capability, let alone nuclear.

With tankers, a small flight might be able to do it, and get away before intercept.

You can only poke this guy so much.

More likely president. When you see pictures showing how fast presidents age due to the stress of the job...I seriously doubt McCain would still be around today.

President. Palin.  Think about that for a bit.

That or a Palin would have witnessed him having an "accident".

Palin is proof that the statement "If women ran the world there would be no war" is absolute bullshiat.

Yeah,
I would not watch her talk on Fox, I would not stick one in her box.

Well she never was "hot" like people say. I guess if you're grading on a curve like politicians, HR workers, gym teachers then okay.

So Republicans, still angry Obama won? Otherwise, McCain would have had a stroke his first week in office and we'd be living in a post nuclear dystopia by now. Road Warrior, Godzilla awoken, mass hysteria.


Could be worse. Like dogs and cats living together worse.

It's not as cut and dry as all that. We're (mistakenly) relying upon Russia to act as a partner in Syria and American businesses have financial interests over there that make eben sanctions and isolation difficult let alone a shooting war.

TV's Vinnie: Do these rightards think that Americans are radiation-proof???


They think that America can destroy Russia before Russia can launch their own nukes back. They also honestly don't care if Europe gets nuked since there is next to nothing that they get from Europe (that they know of) so there is no personal loss for them.

And if the radiation does get to America, they are quite sure that in a few days, maybe as long as a month, there will be treatment provided free to them if they need it.

Now that's a subtle troll.


But, seriously, it appears we need to give Nukes to any country that may be threatened by our enemies, starting with Ukraine.  Hopefully, they'll remember who gave them the nukes and stay eternally grateful, as they should.

Palin is wrong, unsurprisingly.  Really, nukes are only a deterrent to NUCLEAR war, not limited, conventional wars occurring in other countries.  No one can be deterred from taken action when they know that, even if you have nukes, you will never use nukes because it would destroy the entire planet.
