How Sarah Palin Doesn’t Begin to Compare to Barack Obama

Recently, I had to chime in on a comment made to Sam’s blog, concerning Sarah Palin.  The commenter was still harboring some misconceptions about Sarah Palin being “more qualified than Obama.”  He said, “Tell me what he has done, and show me.”

Well, I did just that, and what I learned in the process really crystallized my wonder at how the hell she got on the ticket.  Here’s the comparison:

While Sarah Palin was bouncing among five colleges, and preparing for the Miss Alaska Beauty Contest, Barack Obama was finishing his BA in political science with an emphasis on international relations at Columbia, currently the #8 school in the country.

At the age of 23, he’d already seen more of the world than Palin has seen at 44. In fact, just last month, he was a guest speaker in more foreign countries (7) than Sarah Palin has even visited (4, including Canada and Mexico).  Heck, give her credit for just having stared across the Bering Strait at Russia, bringing her total to 5, and she’s still less traveled.

Jay Smooth on the RNC, Hating and Community Organizers

Jay Smooth of illdoctrine.com posted this response to the RNC, which, in contrast to the inspiring, positive DNC, was a hypernationalist, fearmongering pep rally.  So what else is new?  Jay Smooth and Ill Doctrine.  I can’t get enough of it.  Check it out.

The Real Last Word on Sarah Palin

It’s time to stop talking about Sarah Palin.

Sarah Palin may not share beliefs with much of the country, and that’s just fine.  She has her hands full with a special needs child, a pregnant teen, and an investigation into her conduct, all of which she’s certain to survive.  It’s okay, because at 44 – by political standards – she’s just a kid.  Her day will come.  Just not this year.

Governor Palin is formidable: a smart, congenial, accomplished woman, passionate about her country.  Continue reading ‘The Real Last Word on Sarah Palin’

Sarah Palin and the McCain / McMILF 2008 Ticket

It’s official.  John McCain’s taste in beautiful women is impeccable.

John McCain has chosen MILF Sarah Palin to share the GOP ticket.

Who?

A neo-con, short-term governor of Alaska, who I think appeared in ZZ Top’s “Legs” video in the 80s.  I didn’t think it made sense until I dug in about the voting records of other possible Rep women: the incredibly capable Elizabeth Dole would seem a good, seasoned choice, but being just as old as McCain, might not instill us with much confidence.  Lisa Murkowski, also GOP and Alaskan, has served on committees for energy, parks, education, and foreign relations and is candid about her eagerness to drill for oil, but she’s too moderate on abortion.  Ditto Kay Hutchison on abortion.  Ditto Susan Collins on abortion.  Olympia Snowe reaches across the aisle too much, working with Dems to minimize Bush’s tax cuts, and disagreeing here and there about Iraq.  Elizabeth Joyce is too busy answering hate mail and being courted for her vote.  So that leaves right-wing MILF, Sarah Palin.

I’m not sure when the GOP became the Dukes of Hazzard, but nonetheless, here’s the nutshell read on the schizophrenic nature of this NRA gun-toting beauty queen and VP candidate. Continue reading ‘Sarah Palin and the McCain / McMILF 2008 Ticket’

Why Don’t Republicans Just Come Out?

I really feel for Glenn Murphy, even though he’s an idiot. When will these GOP dudes learn to come out with some dignity? They’re setting us back decades.

Glenn Murphy Jr., is the newly resigned chairman of the Clark County Republican Party and newly resigned president of the Young Republican National Federation (which sounds eerily like something Hitler might have been into).

After a Young Republicans get-together last July, Murphy and a 22-year old buddy of his retired to a pair of bunk beds to sleep it off after a night of tax breaks and tequila shots. Continue reading ‘Why Don’t Republicans Just Come Out?’

Obama/Clinton 2008: You Complete Me

He takes one state, she takes the next. He reaches the younger voter. She reaches the older voter, and especially women. Exit polls show that many Dems like them both equally, but had to choose someone, so they voted for one or the other. Well, soon they won’t have to choose. While it won’t be as tear-stained and ushy-gushy as Jerry Maguire, you can still imagine it: “We live in a cynical world, a cynical world, and we work in a business of tough competitors…” Continue reading ‘Obama/Clinton 2008: You Complete Me’

The Devil Wears Tweed: Sally Kern

Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern (R) claims that we queers are “worse than terrorism or Islam” (read: Muslims = terrorists) and accuses us of engaging in indoctrinating two-year olds in an agenda set to destroy the nation. She declares vehemently that this is not “hate-speech.” Yeah, right, and waterboarding isn’t torture. Gays aren’t going to destroy the country, people like Sally Kern will. Vote Democrat.

Please, take a moment to send this hateful, ignorant woman an email or favor her with a phone call (405) 557-7348.
