Ironically, in 2006, all of the players you now see polarized had agreed to an immigration reform bill co-sponsored by Democrat Ted Kennedy and Republican John McCain. Said bill is now way too sane for McCain to put his name to, as he is busy selling his soul to the radical right and taking his friend Lindsey Graham down with him. Anything to keep his seat. Country First. Yada yada.
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 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.
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.”
