The Truth is Out: Palin’s VP Debate Answers Were Scripted

The false narrative continues as Steve Schmidt (aka, the Bullet) reveals Palin’s debate answers were memorized and scripted. What’s the difference between a Palin debate and a movie? Not much apparently. Sure, American politicians sell a cult of personality, but must it be so disingenuous as to include main characters like W and Palin? Can’t the GOP find someone who can read? Aren’t candidates supposed to have some ideas, something they stand for and shouldn’t they be able to discuss that topic without memorizing answers?

Copenhagen Smack Down: Der Spiegel Reporter to Inhofe: “You’re ridiculous!”

The ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Jim Inhofe, made a scathingly embarrassing appearance in Copenhagen. While the senator didn’t have any meetings scheduled in Copenhagen, he managed to put together an impromptu press conference, during which he took it upon himself to announce that "global warming was a hoax perpetrated on the world by the UN" and sold to Americans "by the Hollywood elite."

Republicans Impose Their “Decider” Approach re Afghanistan Strategy

Republicans are insinuating that Obama's "delay", aka, seeking input from naysayers and congress before making a decision regarding strategy in Afghanistan, is indicative of weakness on Obama's part. Apparently, Republicans have been suppressing Congressional War Powers and the Constitution for so long now that they just assume it's a given that everyone does so, and failure to do so is smugly rebranded as "delay".

Republicans Only Plan is To “Kill ObamaCare”

Republicans have sold the meme that they just need more “time” to draft a good health care reform bill. More time? They had control of the House, Senate and WH for 6 years and they never even brought this issue up! They’ve had all summer to review the various plans and come up with an idea. Heck, they took us into a pre-emptive war with a sovereign nation quicker than that!

The GOP Runs Out of Ammo in Healthcare War

This week in politics brought us irony so thick you can cut it with a knife, as the Republicans waged war against the American people’s right to healthcare, using their standby shock and awe campaign. What’s shocking is that The Royal Republicans haven’t come up with another game yet. Terror, shock and awe? Is that all you got? Looks like they blew their wad in August.

John McCain Stands by Sarah Palin on Death Panels

On ABC's This Week, Sen. John McCain defended Sarah Palin's claim that healthcare reform would result in death panels. McCain argued that reform could lead to death panels, "So what does, what does that lead to? Doesn't that lead to a possibility, at least opens the door to a possibility of rationing and decisions made such are made in other countries?"

Sarah Palin’s Death Panel: A Conservative’s Confession

In the case of Sarah Palin's accusation against Obama, I guess I'm gonna have to go with all three (stupid, lying, and lazy), with a strong emphasis on #2, because during her administration, the state so mismanaged Medicaid that over 250 people died waiting for the program. Hundreds more did not receive treatment. Over eight lawsuits were filed against the state division, bringing the attention of the state auditors, who notified Alaskan officials on June 26 that the entire program was being shut down due to mismanagement. In fact, the Supreme court ruled last year that the state had improperly cut off or reduced services to more than 1,000 needy people.
