Lest you think that the Palin 2008 rallies of hate were an anomaly, Palin fans are now attacking Senator Yee, who called for an investigation of Stanislaus State after University administrators refused to supply Palin’s speaking contract, claiming they didn’t have it. The rage, hatred, bigotry and violence that Palin fans have put on display here has a goal: to silence the Senator. In other words, this is political terrorism.
When she’s not inciting violence, GOP 2012 front-runner Sarah Palin is selling a manifestly incorrect distortion of the constitution, which she invariably gets mixed up with both The Pledge of Allegiance and the song, “America the Beautiful”. Her goal is to create a Christian Nation, where the bible has dominion over the law.
A weekly round up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus; from Teabaggers protesting their tax cuts to Rush’s pagan paranoia causing him to blame a volcano on the passage of healthcare reform, it’s been a wild ride.
Today we can celebrate Hopey ordering the Department of Health and Human Services to establish a rule that would prevent hospitals who participate in Medicare and Medicaid programs (the majority of hospitals) from denying visitation privileges to gay and lesbian partners, among other groups who suffer discrimination under the current prevailing policy of “relative-only” visitation.
Palin’s controversial speech at Cal State University leads to Shredder Gate scandal. State Senator Yee (D-Ca) gave a press conference today regarding Shredder Gate. Not only did the university deny they had the records, but later claimed that they could not release the Palin contract due to a rider specifying privacy in Palin’s contract.
It kinda looks like she quit to line her pockets. So, I guess it wasn’t all about “progressin’ Alaska”. But ya’ know, money isn’t everything. A girl’s gotta have values, also too. And helpin’ us understand HRH’s “common sense conservative values” is her contract with the California State University, Stanislaus Foundation, where Palin is scheduled to “speak” at a June 25 gala hosted by the foundation to mark the university’s 50th anniversary.
You probably guessed by now that there’s more to this story, as hypocrisy, cover-ups and scandal are just par for the course for the Conservative darling.
I protested the Iraq war, way before it was cool to do so, and the Wikileaks Video of “Collateral Murder” demonstrates why I opposed the invasion, but I also spent a week embedded with training soldiers, as they took on the exhaustive task of preparing for battle. Those on the left who criticize miss the point as their self-righteous reaction is a simplistic denial of their own complicity in allowing this war to be fought.
It’s hard to keep up with the Republicans these days. They’re a regular three-ring circus being lead around by leaders like Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck — two out of three of whom we know didn’t finish college. We haven’t seen Palin’s degree from the 5th or 6th college she attended, but recklessly, we are taking her word that she graduated. Personally, I’m still waiting to see her high school diploma, but that’s just me. At any rate, with leaders like this, it’s no wonder that the Republicans are going up in flames.
Sarah pimped for the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America convention today. The convention runs April 6-8 at Caesars Palace on the Las Vegas Strip. The strip? Did anyone call Steele! Oh, I kid. I kid. This is all legal and family-ish. Except for the booze and evangelical thing, but as the Republicans have been trying so hard to demonstrate, no one is perfect. Thing is, I guess no one gave her any palm notes before she spoke, cuz the ex-candidate-for-something-turned-reality-TV-bomb apparently thought she was at a political rally.
Throughout my life I’ve never hated someone’s message so much that I wanted to shut him or her down by force. My liberal parents taught me that those folks had a right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech. This is our right as American citizens. Part of my job as a citizen is to tolerate ideas with which I do not agree, so long as they do not infringe on the rights and safety of others. This is a concept that Republicans no longer understand.
Palin Demands RNC Take Her Name Off of Fundraisers It seems Sister Sarah is too pristine to associate with the likes of the RNC (bondage themes aside, as she remains their Mistress of Scold). And while many are saying this is a bad move on her part, it’s actually more of the same quite successful […]
Sarah Palin’s ties with the AIP (which itself has strong ties with white supremacists groups, the same groups the Secret Service blamed for the death threats against candidate Obama) should have been a warning about what kind of person she was, but the media were charmed by her folksy mom image. And while Americans finally decided she was unqualified to be Vice President, they never got a glimpse of the real Sarah. The real Sarah is a dangerous extremist. And she has the past to prove it.
Righteous Eric Cantor claimed yesterday that his office was the target of gun violence. I wondered at the time the teabaggers may have shot at his office, seeing as they are now furious with Republicans for allowing a “Marxist Socialist Nazi” to “take over” the healthcare sector. But whose fault is that? They wouldn’t be so angry if Republicans hadn’t been lying to them for so long. So how would that have made the violence equal, if in fact, he had been targeted by the teabaggers? You lay down with dogs….Just to be sure, I checked Palin’s target map and I didn’t see Eric name on there anywhere. And then I remembered how Republicans love to play victim as soon as the heat gets turned up on them. Unfortunately for Cantor, the police don’t concur with his version of events. So much for Cantor’s desperate attempt to take cover for being a bully by hopping on the victim bus.
McCain is everywhere this post-healthcare reform passage morning. McCain is apparently feelin’ rather badly for himself and his party, as his main message today is “Everything we did wrong in the last year, we’re going to do more of! We’re going to run on repealing healthcare reform. We’re not going to be a part of any solutions. And lastly, I am bringing Palin back for another Hail Mary next week.”
The half-term governor of Alaska who quit mid-term due to an inability to get her agenda passed and indeed, even her own Attorney General nominated (a first in Alaska), strikes out at Obama, calling him “inexperienced” and unable to get a bi-partisan bill due to his “lack of management experience.”
Last night, Jon Stewart, that lone courageous patriot, explained to us how Conservative Libertarians are really Aryan Cons lying to us all and making us all slaves using nothing but a chalk board and some ovals! Yes, SLAVES! Jesus, theocracy, fire and brimstone!
Hagiographer, Fox News “commentator”, and palm reader Sarah Palin has been desperately pitching her reality TV series to the major networks, but it seems the Big Boys have better things to do with their primetime air then follow a half-term former quitter around Alaska as she pretends to be folksy and outdoorsy.
The Nuns have came together to say they care MORE about pragmatic reality, MORE about helping people, MORE about correcting the unjust practices in the current healthcare system than they do obeying the patriarchs of the Catholic Church, who are cynically catering to political powers. This is a gift to humanity, the women’s movement, social justice, Democrats, and certainly Jesus if one believes.
Let’s say you were going to cast a Republican Clown Show of Hypocrites who ran on “Family Values” whilst cheating on their wives and voting against women’s rights at every turn.
Let’s imagine this is the most ridiculous Clown Show ever… so bad that these Republican Clowns actually voted against protecting battered women from being cut off from health insurance access. Yes, let’s pretend that they actually voted to ensure that in nine states, health insurance companies could tell a woman who has been battered that she has a pre-existing condition.
