How Thomas Jefferson Warned Us About Sarah Palin

The press fawned over Sarah Palin when she arrived at last night's Time 100 Gala, stepping over themselves to get a photo of the gal who refused to speak to them until they show "deference" to her as she was campaigning to be Vice President of America and has not yet held a press conference or taken unscreened questions from the press. Palin quoted Thomas Jefferson, whose prophetic quotes suggest he saw Palin coming.

A Weekly Round Up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus May 2, 2010

GOP Circus

A weekly round up of the Republican Wing Nut Circus: This week, Republicans were freaked out over good news about the economy (say it ain’t so, Joe!) so in their ever impressive attempt to "take back their country", they did what all Real Americans do -- they focused on animals. Yes, from suggesting we barter chickens for healthcare to comparing illegal immigrants to dogs,it's been a wild GOP ride this week. Please no comments on the disturbing Freudian slips of the party of Repression and Regression. This is tough enough.

Babygate: Fox News Reports that Bristol Palin had a Son in Sept 2008

Palin Secrets

Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol both testified at the email hacking trial of David Kernall, which found him guilty of 2 out of 4 charges. The trial lasted just two days. In reporting the verdict this evening, Fox revealed, "Bristol Palin said she was distressed to find pictures of her newborn son in the public eye after her mother's e-mail was hacked." But Bristol's baby supposedly wasn't born until December of 2009.

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?

Sarah Palin Encourages Franklin Graham to Spread the Holy War Against Muslims

Unwilling to let any chance for more publicity via her specialty of moral poutrage sprinkled over Dim-Sum pass her by, Sarah Palin takes to her facebook page to decry the Pentagon's decision yesterday to dis-invite Franklin Graham from National Prayer Day. In doing so, Palin demonstrates yet again how little she thinks/knows of the law, inviting satire as the only possible rebuttal available to all reading citizens.

Teabagger No More: Brown Endorses Romney over Palin for 2012

Scott Brown (R-MA) appeared on NBC-TV's "Today" show this morning. Brown made his break with the Tea Party final by announcing he would support Mitt Romney over Tea Party darling Sarah Palin, dashing the hopes of many Tea Partiers who had fantasies of a Palin/Brown ticket in 2012. The support of the Tea Party and Sarah Palin's endorsement are assumed to be responsible for getting Brown his seat in the special election in January of this year.

Palin Fans Unleash Political Terrorism on Senator

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.

Sarah Palin’s Dangerous Vision of America

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.

Palin Contract Scandal Shredder Gate Blows Up

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.

Palin’s Latest Scandal: Bendy Straws, Lear Jets and Shredded Documents

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.

Palin Flops with Bombed Out Wine and Spirit Crowd

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.

Internal Implosion in the RNC as Top Fundraiser Palin Bails on Them

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 tactics she has been using to get elected since she started her political career with around 600 votes back in Wasilla. read more

Alaskans Adamantly Rebuke Palin’s Denial of Stoking Violence

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 to Double Down on His Losing Health Care Strategy

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.”

Sarah Palin Throws another Top Aide under the Bus

One of the few top aides who were still with Sarah Palin announced her resignation today. Palin has a long history of tossing her biggest supporters under the Palin Bus, making sure to leave their reputation in tatters as the bus rolls over them in its relentlessly ambitious journey to her self-described God-mandated “destiny” as President.
