Loose Lips And Fact Free

I'm tired of looking at pictures of Sarah Palin so when I saw this I thought it made a good metaphor. Old Navy man John McCain being the ship. Hahahahaaaa.

Yep. It's all beginning to get to me. I read Bill Crystal's pander to Palin in the New York Times and thought there she goes again!

Crystal was having a little chat with Sarah discussing among other things Obama's associations with Reverend Jeremiah Wright and William Ayers. Now, we knew Wright was going to be resurrected didn't we? Specifically he wanted to know if Wright wasn't in fact the bigger issue because of Obama's closer connection with him.

She had this to say:
"To tell you the truth, Bill, I don’t know why that association isn’t discussed more, because those were appalling things that that pastor had said about our great country, and to have sat in the pews for 20 years and listened to that — with, I don’t know, a sense of condoning it, I guess, because he didn’t get up and leave — to me, that does say something about character..."
Discussed more? Where were you during the primaries, honey? It was beaten to death and then some!

First, it was explained, ad nauseam, that Reverand Wright did not spend every single sermon lambasting America. And, by checking the dates of the offensive sermons against Obama's schedule found his claims that he was not present to be true.

Oh, I'm getting so weary of Ms. Palin playing catch up and in so doing not doing her homework. Attacking Obama's character can be treading on thin ice. There is the Keating Five issue with McCain now getting some play; there is his Brazilian hottie and the treatment of his first wife that are all ripe for exploitation.

As for Palin, it's out there honey - your alleged affair with your husband's one time business partner not to mention hubby's involvement with a secessionist group. If seceding from the United States isn't anti-American I don't know what is!

Oh yeah, it's all out there. The bloggers have been having a field day with it. The main stream press is beginning to pick it up. But don't blame them for gottcha journalism.

If it weren't for the race issue and th fact that this is a racist country, I would say Obama has the election won.

The only thing that Palin is good for as far as I'm concerned is diet control -- with her idiiot picture everywhere and her stupid quotes everywhere, I have no difficulty curbing my appetite -- if I can eat at all!

Today's polls look good and Obama is ahead in all the swing states except Ohio where he is behind 1 point.

With the economy as serious as it is I can't imagine how McCain and Palin going negative is going to help them.

I would love to see John McCain show his anger in tonight's debate. I don't think the VP debate can be called a debate. It was a performance to showcase Palin.

Bill Kristol is one of the neocons. He makes my eyes cross.

Bring up Jeremiah Wright and the Obama camp can bring up Palin's minister. I'd be careful about bringing that up if I were Palin.

How come Palin can get away with wearing that huge diamond ALASKA pin of hers, considering her AIP connections? You don't hear Lowry, Kristol, Brooks, Hannity, etal, talking about that, but they will jump on Obama every time he doesn't wear a stupid flag pin.

This country's collective IQ has dropped considerably. We definitely need more money for education!!
