Oh well, here she is, Miss Also America, proving once again why nobody would give her a job as a local-teevee-news announcer because GAH nails on chalkboard, etc. Your editor almost drove out to the southern Nevada mining town of Searchlight to witness this public-speaking abortion. But, honestly, being in the same town as Sarah Palin once was more than enough.

As Frank Rich writes in tomorrow’s NYT: “At least four of the House members hit with death threats or vandalism are among the 20 political targets Palin marks with rifle crosshairs on a map on her Facebook page.” So, the Wasilla Grifter is doing about as well with this as she did with winning the vice presidency, or sticking with her job as Alaska’s governor.

Let her pack up her bags of money and tacky leather dresses and go back to Alaska, forever. Fucking idiot crook. [Los Angeles Times]

  1. Also, I love how they decided to protest at Harry Reid’s home days after his wife and daughter were critically injured in a car crash. Classy.

  2. You know, I listened to the whole clip hoping that I would hear something new to make some wisecrack about our snowbillie princess. I watched the whole clip to see something different to make some wisecrack about her appearance. Nothing new. So now I turn to the most reliable source of realy funny new material–the comments to follow.

  3. She could be replaced by a plastic sex doll and software that spits out random conservative buzzwords and no one would notice, not even her husband.

  4. What I like about Sarah Palin is that she doesn’t let her readiness to take offense at the slightest provocation keep her from telling others not to overreact when she tells people to — for instance — not retreat but reload.
    But I guess that what she means by exceptionalism — when you’re blessed by The LORD, who gives a shit if people think you’re a hypocrite?
    And speaking of exceptionalism — loved her quotation about how the US armed services are a force for good, and not something to run around apologizing for. Notwithstanding that President Obama’s speeches to other nations aren’t apologies, it nails a big flashing neon “Do Not Vote for Me” sign on any politician who syllogises that because X is good, Act Z that X has done cannot in any possible way be bad, evil, harmful or unpatriotic. Thanks for playing, Ms. Palin — you are now officially dangerously unfit for public office.

  5. Hateful bitch whore Evita-wannabe from Hell spat up during a gaseous bukkake-gasm by over-ripe pasty pedophiles and dripping syphillitic long-in-the-tooth mongrel Boss-Hogg impersonators. Or Hitler reincarnated. Either way.

  6. Couldn’t finish – good thing I’m not male – but I just realized snowcunt can never ever utilize the convenience of a TelePrompTer again, like every other public speaker. May she have an itch in a bad place at her next appearance, fucking demagogue.

  7. Beautiful to see her grappling with a piece of paper in the wind, now that she’s clamped a self-imposed chastity belt on her ability to use the common aids that public speakers the world over avail themselves of. Kumbaya, teabaggers, America’s best days are ahead of her. Yeah. That’s what they want to hear. How did she do in the pickle-licking contest?

  8. What is this idjit even talking about? Whenever I see that this dame is fashioning her vile mouth to produce “words,” I experience a minor stroke. For this mumbling sack of petrified dog turds to say anything cogent or enlightening would be truly pathological.

  9. [re=542512]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Um, she’s going to be a host on the Discovery Channel. I think whatever dreams she may have momentarily considered regarding public office are now effectively done for.

    Oh and I notice she hasn’t done too much more political commentary on Fox. That fact along with the Discovery Channel contract suggests she failed her audition. Which basically means she quit as Governor of Alaska for the chance to audition to be a talking head on Fox, an opportunity which she has apparently botched. Well played, Sarah, well played.

  10. Cue card is to teleprompter as:

    A) Washboard is to Washing Machine
    B) Horse & Buggy is to Automobile
    C) Hand-crank ice cream maker is to Electric ice cream amker
    D) Anything stupid is to modern contrivance
    E) Fuck All

  11. Ken Layne, you can’t possibly make enough money off this rag that we could expect you to travel to Searchlight. A couple of minutes watching the HateHarry rally, even on TV, could test any sane person’s mental health.

    Berkeley Bear, on the previous thread, mentioned a Searchlight attendee interviewed by AP who identified himself as a retired logger. I just can’t stop thinking about that guy. He was employed in an industry that’s been government-subsidized for at least a generation and now he’s collecting Social Security and Medicare, yet he hates “the government” and wants them out of his life? OK, we can oblige. Return your monthly checks, Grandpa, turn in your Medicare card, and give the Democratic Party the title to that pre-fab in Pahrump that’s no doubt all paid for. No doubt his reply to that would be, “But I earned it!” And it never, ever, ever occurs to him that some people fought just as hard against all the many entitlements he enjoys every blasted day as he’s fighting against mere improvements in the healthcare choices of his fellow citizens. Seriously, how does one even TALK to these people?

    This makes me SO depressed. I apologize for having no snark. I’ll stop posting now.

  12. Some of you are like so many of my friends and my family, including my own husband, just independent, not registered in any party

    You know, true blue blue-blooded ‘muricans, you know Alaska Independent Partei members!

  13. I drove through Searchlight once. I had no plans to repeat that anytime soon, but Tardstock certainly doesn’t help.

    [re=542527]Jukesgrrl[/re]: Pahrump, eh? Wasn’t that where the aliens landed in Mars Attacks!? Seems rather appropriate, dontchathink?

  14. [re=542510]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Her husband is apparently boinking Greta van Sustren, so he doesn’t care. He’s got that Joan Rivers, Jr. frozen grimace to enjoy when he and Greta wake up in a tangled heap of damp blankets, caribou entrails and whale blubber-flavored vodka at the Anchorage Holiday Inn after a hot night of cold snowbilly sex.

  15. Such a weak concentration of camp was well appraised by County Commissioner Steve Sisolak “There are abandoned mines a peep could fall into. It’s a habitat for the desert tortoise: volkspersons need to know it’s a $25,000 fine if they pick up on one,” he almost said.

  16. A recent NYT profile of the teabagger movement showed (shockingly) that many are unemployed/retired and depending heavily on gubbiment checks.

    Just seems that these guys are more mad that a black guy has an executive job while they’re sitting around collecting welfare and being used as retarded cannon fodder in Dick “Dick” Armey’s Army.

    As the Admiral played by Frederick March in The Bridges At Toko Ri might have asked, “Where do they get such ‘tards? They collect their gubbiment checks and they scream about socialism. Then they go and vote against their own personal interest. When they win, they vote in guys who fuck them up the ass. Where do they get such ‘tards? “

  17. Palin does “God Bless You All” with much more sincerity and confidence than Obama. His sounds like an afterthought, as if he knows the people who are still listening at the end of any of his remarks aren’t stupid enough to fall for that crap. But he has to say it anyway. I hate that. Palin’s “God Bless You All” was the least stupid, least craven, least pandering thing in the clip. She finished strong. What a Great American.

  18. [re=542512]SayItWithWookies[/re]: American exceptionalism means never having to say you’re sorry. That, and using the right amount of napalm/smart bombs/missiles so no one’s around to apologize to.

  19. Oh come on, clearly Sarah has all the answers for Murika’s problems. They are: platitudes for the troops, energy independence(just forget that we have 3% of the worlds oil reserves and use 25% of the worlds oil), shot at media, platitude for Reagan, and specific policy proposals such as common sense conservatism and small government. And Sarah put those common sense, bedrock conservative principls into action when she increased Wasilla’s spending 55% in 6 years and Alaska’s spending 31% in 2 years. Every mayor of a small town of 10,000 people should have a taxpayer funded SUV to drive around town in because Reagan would of wanted it that way. And yes she is an energy expert because she spent 6 whole months on an Alaskan energy board before quitting.

    Am I supposed to trade my Volvo in, because snowbilly now has us driving Subarus? Oh wait, I have Chrysler.

  20. [re=542508]I Heart Accuracy[/re]: that was so accurate!

    [re=542522]Mr Blifil[/re]: hmmm. she isn’t good enough for Fox news. So what would that say about any other grad of journalism school?

    I see she is walking back hard, ok, she mentioned it, that she is not inciting violence.

    Oh really Sarah? We all know you are a pathological liar.

  21. [re=542546]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: As sincere as any former governor who quit in the middle of their term could sound, right? Are you typing this from the Grandy’s in Searchlight or something??? They went Wi-Fi?? Cool!!

    [re=542544]ManchuCandidate[/re]: “It’s the Black President, stupid”

  22. [re=542527]Jukesgrrl[/re]: [re=542534]Joey Ratz[/re]: So mean, you guys! I live “Pahrump-Adjacent”; not in some tacky trailer court, but a real live stucco and tile 4 blocks away from some tacky trailer court.
    Otherwise, they would’ve burned it down due to Obama yardsigns and such.
    But Art Bell, also.

  23. And by “Slit their throats then skull fuck them!” she means “Cut Taxes.”

    [re=542542]Red Zeppelin[/re]: Here I was thinking that Burning Man had really gone down hill.

  24. [re=542551]Potater[/re]: I’m sorry , I love those movies. Naziploitation is a guilty pleasure.

    [re=542555]Tuna Industry Paybacks[/re]: I was going to say , “Oooh, but it’s so close to that party town Beacon Station.” I just didn’t want to step on one of the editors toes since he lives in an disclosed location somewhere in that region. Actually, you’re right I lived in Barstow for a while, and Searchlight is a shithole.

  25. [re=542546]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: Who the fuck cares about how someone says “God Bless America”? Do you really base your political beliefs on enunciation – specifically, the enunciation of whoever gives you a boner? (Or ladyboner?)

    Get a life, dude. Stop trolling Web sites where everyone rolls their eyes and laughs at you. You’re like Larry the Cable Guy strutting into the Hyde Lounge. Just put on your old-timey Benjamin Franklin fetish costume, meet up with your construction worker friends, and have a pleasant evening drinking Nattie Light while talking talk about the good old days when black people were slaves and women were property. Thanks.

  26. As sincere as any former governor who quit in the middle of their term could sound, right?

    Well, she claims she believes in “smaller government”, so she just served a smaller term.


  27. [re=542546]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: I wish that after she said “God Bless You All,” she would have shown everybody her tits. That’s what they showed up to see. That’s what they paid the big money for.

  28. [re=542546]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: You know what else? Sarah’s flag pin is so much more tasteful. It radiates freedom, liberty and patriotism — and the Constitution! Nothing says Murika is a christian nation like a Made in China trinket. And where is Obama’s? I’ll bet it’s on a shelf next to Das Kapital and whatever book Saul Alinsky wrote. Obama is the real quitter when he stopped wearing the obligatory lapel pin.

  29. [re=542544]ManchuCandidate[/re]: White fucks who live of government checks are the worst. Terry Nichols, (I may not have the spelling correct on that one) who aided Timothy McVeigh, “farmed” with his brother. Yeah, farmed government agricultural subsidies. The only time I agree with Spooky Doktor Tom is when he wants to cut farm subsidies. Biggest fuking ripoff on earth, and they’re the first ones to jump into the teabagging fest. You like the free market, white dip shits? Fine. Compete on a level playing field with African cotton farmers.

    Rant done. As you were.

  30. The time has come for all loyal Wonketeers to agree that whenever Sister Sarah shows up at a rally in a locality that any of us can attend, we must be in attendance calling out for her to “Show Us Your Tits. I’ve got a $100.00 here to give to Sarahpac if you’ll just show us your tits.” I vow that any Sister Sarah rallies in the San Diego area will have me there making just such a demand upon the Grifter in Chief.

  31. [re=542579]RPolanski[/re]: As I bid the wonkeratti “nitey nite” let me say this is a brilliant idea. If you don’t worry that much about getting the shit kicked out of you.

    There isn’t much of her in “Game Change” because once they report a Republic came out of Bible Spice’s debate prep all he could say say “She doesn’t know anything, does she?”

    The people who used to publish Bushisms should do a new series and call it, “Shit Sarah Palin Doesn’t Know.”

    Later, losers.

  32. “Palin marks with rifle crosshairs . . . “?

    Damnit, Ken, you NEVER provide ANY of the INTERESTING details that any REASONABLE reader really wants to know.

    Where those “crosshairs” reticle or post? Graduated? Windage scale? Cheapo Warsaw Pact surplus mil-spec, or modern American .416 cal. Cheyenne? Ballistic computer, or old fashion “Mark One Eyeball”?

    Details, Ken. Details. The first rule of journalism is “Know Your Audience.”

    Thank you.

  33. [re=542556]El Pinche[/re]: [re=542557]Texan Bulldoggette[/re]: [re=542563]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: Please consider reading it again, more carefully.
    [re=542561]Duncan Idaho[/re]: Don’t bother.

  34. Of course we’re not gonna kick God out of the grand ole US of A, he left of his own accord upon seeing specimens such as as she a long time ago.

  35. [re=542567]Bearbloke[/re]: “It’s not serious. She just hasn’t been feeling herself and they’re just trying to figure out why.”

    Mrs. Bush’s family grew alarmed when they saw her tip fifteen percent.

  36. [re=542591]Eurofaggg[/re]: Thanks, Eurofaggg. I was also going to mention her droppin’ the g’s, but didn’t. I see you’ve been pickin’ them up for her.

  37. [re=542522]Mr Blifil[/re]: They’re just shuffling her off somewhere until they can get her to speak in complete sentences extemporaneously. Granted, it might take longer than they expect, but Beck loves her and Ailes loves Beck, so she’s staying. And if shunting someone off to a fluffy wasteland is a sign of having no future, George Stephanopolous is going to cry (and I know — not really — but in a land with standards, it would be the case).

  38. Somewhat O/T, but this has got to be the lamest thing I have ever seen, truly. An
    online tax march to Washington, but you don’t have to even pick your fat ass up out of the chair.

    You pick an avatar that couldn’t cut it as Word clip art and watch it “march” across the U.S. on April 15 to protest taxes, which are suddenly too high, even though they’ve gone down under Obama. Who the hell could be moronic enough to think this is a) a great idea and b) anything other than a way to get names and contact info? Is there now a sucker born ever millisecond?

    I’m tempted to sign up, just to have the teabaggers waste their money mailing me pleas for munnies. Should I sign up for the Boortz Brigade, Team Todd Tiahrt, or Team Phyllis Schlafly? So many fucksticks, so little time. This is unbelievable, who would join up for this? Do baggers just randomly push buttons on the Internet?

  39. [re=542560]El Pinche[/re]: Ah, the Masonic Recognition Grip of who’s hiding out under his real name. Riddle me this: what ever happened to Peeder? I spent two months six light-years outside the touch line and when I got back, nothing existed anymore. Is it true that he surrendered his position to spend more time with his career? Or is it the other thing?

    ObSnowBilly: I’d still drench her face with baby batter. That’s never going to change. Yeah, she’s evil and stupid and leads an army of orcs, and her voice could autoclave National Park toilet seats in the open air. That’s what ring gags are for. I got it bad; I’m hot for teacher.

  40. [re=542604]Katydid[/re]: Get it right, asshole. Make that “Do baggers just randomly push buttons on their keyboards?” Evidently I do. D’oh.

  41. [re=542604]Katydid[/re]: I say “Heil Boortz”… hahahahahahahahahahahaheheeeeheheha – pathetic!

    [re=542605]GreenHalo[/re]: Snowbilly?! Gah! I wouldn’t shag ‘er with Ann Coulter’s cock!

  42. [re=542599]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: Yeah, what DoctorZoom said. I got your sarcasm, then thought maybe I missed something when others thought you were serious.

    Glad to know we have a new (two new, *waves to Eurofaggg also*) Wonketteers. *inhales, passes the joint*

    Stay awhile, make yourselves comfortable, enjoy the weed and booze. Don’t bogart the snark.

  43. [re=542608]El Pinche[/re]: Wow, I just looked again, and these actual words, in this actual order, appear before the avatars: Please note, the avatars for these leaders are in alphabetical order and not exact representation of their likenesses.

    Shorter: Hey morons! This clip art is not photography! Goddammed teabaggers, gotta explain every fucking thing to them.

  44. [re=542612]Katydid[/re]: Tx for the link — it gets over my stupid firewall at work. These wingtard websites have a diving off the cliff feel, I’m going in………

  45. [re=542607]Bearbloke[/re]: Wanna hear a good one? Bar and the Mister receive free medical care in military hospitals for life, but evidently that’s not good enough for those patriots, because they went to a private hospital. After everything both Bushies did to help veterans, including making so many more of them, they show their gratitude by not going to a veterans’ hospital? Shee-yut. That’s some commonsense fucktardism.

  46. That’s ok Sarah. Just remember that wise old Teabagger saying:

    “First they shoot a window in a building that also houses your campaign office, then they laugh at you at Talking Points Memo, then they fight you, then you win.”

  47. [re=542604]Katydid[/re]: Who would sign up for that? Haywood Jablowme, for one. His little Tea Party Patriot avatar will be marching from Los Angeles to D.C. on April 15. U-S-A!

  48. From watching Bible Spice rape political discourse with her mouth, I’ve come to the conclusion that baby Trig must have been born orally since the things coming out of Palin’s mouth are just bloody retarded…

  49. [re=542614]Katydid[/re]: I heard ol’ ‘I said Bourbon DAMMIT! ‘ Barb got a heart bypass – after the doctors ‘found’ and Iraqi heart that fit into the empty cavity…

  50. [re=542601]Country Club Jihadi[/re]: She needs something. Leathertits is clearly out. The Thanksgiving Turkapitator was plausibly denied, plus kinda ew. McSkeletor didn’t even make it to day two. Maybe channel the Romans and create Fatapult 2.0? Shooting Teabaggers at Dunes would totally make the news.

  51. [re=542624]Bearbloke[/re]: No, I’m here slogging away at the nuclear plant.
    BTW, do you think at some point before this Grifter and Grumpy show started someone in the Palin Kampf said, “should we bring the retard?”, or Cindy McKnuckles said “DO NOT bring the retard?!?”
    Just asking.

  52. [re=542626]Bearbloke[/re]: Oh No, a mime meme.
    Also, my favorite Rodney Dangerfield line…Yeah, that Viagra, it’s strong…., I sprained my wrist.

  53. [re=542604]Katydid[/re]: You, my friend, are bringing some serious motherfucking snark tonight. Fucktardism = pure wonkette gold. What other word succinctly describes people, who are against high taxes, protesting against a guy who cut their taxes. It’s the stoopid on steroids. I believe its caused from lead paint from Chinese made American flag pins and subliminal messages when Lee Greenwood albums are played backwards.

  54. 759 people live in that polluted mining village-hole-pit. All searching for light. Er, I meant for a light. To fire up their meth pipes and stare at the Screechy Lady.

  55. I was heartened to see the President recently stand up and say directly the Republican Rump (and indirectly the Tea’tards) who want to repeal his reforms by spreading lies and inciting the kind of brain dead morons who jerk off to the Witch of Wasilla to go forth and do who knows what: “BRING IT ON!”

    It is the the ONLY proper response. A previous Commander in Chief from down Chicago way called on “the better angels of our nature”, but also understood that the forces of darkness must be faced up to and exposed for what they are. President Obama won a huge victory to take office, by a margin that scared the shite out of the Glenn Becks of the world. The ‘Baggers are a loudmouthed minority, but they will keep on demanding more and more attention until the majority of reasonable folk tell them their fifteen minutes is up. For the sake of your country’s future, I Believe the President’s call is one that should be answered.

  56. [re=542632]Joshua Norton[/re]: Laughingstock gets my vote – anything that includes the Leather Tuscadero wannbe (aka: 1/2 governor) has to be a laughingstock.

  57. [re=542607]Bearbloke[/re]: Crowley was a big fan of the butt-secks, though, so it’s unlikely he was Bab’s father. Unless she was concieved in a very unusual way….

  58. Under what logical criteria is Sarah Palin giving the same speech she’s already given a few hundred times considered “breaking” news? Because she’s on their payroll? Or because they thought she was going to flash her breasts?

  59. Gee Ken, working on a Sunday to document this crap? I thought my job sucked.

    Sarah must be reminding mainstream Republicans, who now call themselves independents or even Democrats, hwy they are embarrassed to call themselves Republicans. Keep up the good work Mz Palin. I sure Harry Reid’s opponents thank you.

  60. ” Yeah America, you like it like that, don’t ya, you nasty, dirty little country? Tell me whose Congress this is, tell me or I’m gonna keep rammin’ this legislation right up the Well of your Senate. I’m gonna smack that soft, round, rump legislative package of yours if you don’t tell me…That’s what you want, isn’t it? You love my rock hard, throbbing socialist principles all up in that sweet little bicameral muffin, don’t ya baby?..say my name! Who’s your daddy? Who’s your daddy!!! EEEEEEEEYAAAAH!!! ”

    Sorry guys, I’m just hard working American loving my country, now if you’ll excuse me, I need a shower and cigarette.

  61. Jesus. I listened to about 40 seconds and now I need to go jam pens into my ears. The new form of torture is playing Palin’s voice, in a loop.

  62. [re=542604]Katydid[/re]: I face the same temptation. I’d join the Boorish Brigade, but the Schafly team seems appealing because of her hideous ideology. Just don’t know! Ultimately, however, I don’t know if it’s worth it to add fuel to their continuing temper tantrums about having a colored for president. If you join up please do take screenshots of the inanity. Thank you!

  63. If we’re all lucky (which I think we are), SP will run as president as a Republican, lose the primary, then split the vote on the Tea Party ticket. With her it’s not about winning or losing. It’s all about ego.

  64. [re=542653]betterDeadThanRed[/re]: It’s fantastic: the right is in a spiraling apart and the GOP (really a coalition party) is disintegrating institutionally and doctrinally (no real leadership, no plan, no nothin). Take this nugget for instance:

    the teabaggers know what they want, and it’s not Mitch fuckin’ McConnell.

  65. [re=542659]Buttery1000[/re]: Look for a tea party takeover of the Libertarian Party, much as Buchanan tried to take over the Reform (old Perot thing) party for ballot access. LP is on the ballot in most states and is entrepreneurial and hungry enough to welcome the unwashed hordes on in. Meanwhile, Sarah hates a GOP primary, so the idea of an easy nomination would appeal to her…

  66. Sarah Palin on language: When I talk about taking up arms and when my website highlight opponents with rifle crosshairs, that’s only a metaphor, for gosh sake. When David Letterman makes a lame joke about my daughter, he is a despicable sex pervert.

  67. Depending on the source somewhere from 5-9K cheered a half-hour of Screeching Wassila. Mmmm, that’s about the average attendance at a minor league baseball game. Seems, ’bout right, so can we assume ‘Merica has spoken about this minor leaguer?

  68. The insane clown posse (Tea Party America) must be encouraged (up to a point). At least as long as it takes to set up the death panels for realz.

  69. [re=542542]Red Zeppelin[/re]: How is that different from Burning Man?

    Where else can fat old white men run around in a loincloth (or, worse, the “shirtcocker” look: wide-brimmed hat, sandals, black socks, ratty old t-shirt that’s not *quite* long enough to hide the old guy’s junk and/or asscheeks, no pants)

  70. [re=542657]x111e7thst[/re]: A quick google search gave me attendance for the Halloween parade as 50,000 people in costume. The actual Woodstock was attended by an estimated 400,000. More than 93,000 people go to the Rosebowl Parade. 700,000 people go to the International Balloon Fiesta. More people go to Rainbow Gatherings than the Teabagger Hissyfit in the dsert.

  71. [re=542657]x111e7thst[/re]: The traditionaly Hallowe’en party in West Hollywood usually draws between 250,000 and 500,000.

    Yep. Between a quarter- and a half-million people turn out for this thing every year.

  72. and lest we forget, she said something to the effect of “Who ever incites violence will be in my crosshairs”.

    How stupid can one person get? I fear she might be the brightest of all the people in the room….and that makes me sad for America.

  73. [re=542675]iolanthe[/re]: Agreed that Burning Man, has way too much fatoldmanskin, it does not have a sponsored goat fuck & Barbie-queue. The Teatards would be just as happy to listen to Klaus Barbie as his Caribou cuzzin.

  74. [re=542544]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Where do they get such ‘tards?
    The teabaggers are funded by American Prosperity and Freedom Works, two fronts for David Koch, of Koch Industries, the largest privately owned energy company in America. Source.

    This is typical of fascist “grass roots” organizations–they are always funded by big business, which subsidizes its own “mass movement,” consisting of everything from unemployed pimps, such as Horst Wessel, to megalomaniac money-crazy publicity hounds, such as Sarah Palin.

  75. [re=542678]iolanthe[/re]: Haywood will be very happy to hear that, as will Suckamyballs Losers and whoever the hell else signed up around one in the morning when imissopus had had a few.

    That West Hollywood Halloween parade is something everyone should see once in life. After that, the traffic getting there is a goddamn nightmare.

    [re=542683]SayItWithWookies[/re]: Easily the most swagger-worthy week of his presidency so far. And you know Monday morning he’ll be back up at five to get in his workout so he can put in a full twelve-hour day in the office. Dude is a machine.

  76. The T-Baggers in my Central New York hell-hole of a town posted their scheduled orgy in the local rag along with their Principles Of Liberty, which are as follows:
    1. The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.
    2. A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.
    3. The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders.
    4. Without religion the government of a free people cannot be maintained.
    5. All things were created by God, therefore upon Him all mankind are equally dependent, and to Him they are equally responsible.
    6. All men are created equal.
    7. The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things.
    8. Men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights.
    9. To protect man’s right, God has revealed certain principles of divine law.
    10. The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people.
    11. The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government that has become tyrannical.
    12. The United States of America shall be a republic.
    13. A constitution should be structured to permanently protect the people from the human frailties of their rulers.
    14. Life and liberty are secure only so long as the right of property is secure.
    15. The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free market economy and a minimum of government regulations.
    16. The government should be separated into three branches: legislative, executive, and judicial.
    17. A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power.
    18. The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written constitution.
    19. Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others being retained in the people.
    20. Efficiency and dispatch require government to operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority.
    21. Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom.
    22. A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men.
    23. A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education.
    24. A free people will not survive unless they stay strong.
    25. “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations: entangling alliances with none.”
    26. The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore, the government should foster and protect its integrity.
    27. The burden of debt is as a destructive to freedom as subjugation by conquest.
    28. The United States has a manifest destiny to be an example and a blessing to the entire human race.

    This certainly explains the hundreds of millions of misty-eyed intellectuals lining up to join Abominable Snow Cunt’s revolution. They want gubmint to support their God-given anarchic utopia only. Manifest Destiny, indeed. The mid-nineteenth century shall remain in perpetuity. Small wonder they don’t believe in evolution – they’re immune to it.
    By the way, the local American Legion Post is named the Arthur S. Moran Post. Go figure.

  77. [re=542546]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: I understood your point. My snark-detector is fully functional this morning. I will give my other friends a pass becuase granted, it was near midnight and I am sure they were drunk when reading it the first time through.

  78. [re=542687]Aurelio[/re]: And it gets way over amplified – sorta like feedback when the mike is too close to the speakers. In this morning’s C’Addle Timez, they have a front page bit that headlines “Hundreds gather to back Rob McKenna in health-care suit” McEnnema is our State AG who is among the dirty dozen +2 Repubtard state AGs filing suit on the just passed HCR. The Timez, is a conservative daily whoz deadtree edition is becoming skinnier than a certain blonde on blonde batshit crazy anorexic who shall, at Ed Ken’s request, remain nameless.

    Hundreds gather? Now that is a hell of a movement! But hay, for the oldes any movement is a good movement, and if da press keeps reporting these small crowds above the fold, then perception gets leveraged to the clouds.

    Wait a minute, these bozos are clearly plagiarizing Arlo Guthrie’s Alice’s Restaurant Anti-Massacree Movement. Arlo, can you slap them with a copyright lawsuit?

  79. Here is another crazy thing she said at the McCain rally:

    Sarah Palin issued the following warning to the most extreme elements in the Tea Party movement: “Anyone who uses threats of violence will be in my crosshairs.”

    But she was was quick to add that the issue of violence had been overblown by what she called “the lame-stream media,” adding, “In Alaska, you know what we do with people like that? We hunt ’em down and shoot ’em between the eyes!”

    She threatens violence if the Tee Peers threaten violence and goes onto threaten the media with shooting them between the eyes. Is this the talk of a sane person?

  80. President Obama made an unscheduled stop in Afghanistan today, his first visit to the war zone since moving into the White House.

    Air Force One touched down at Bagram Air Force Base overnight, after leaving Andrews Air Force base under cover of secrecy on Saturday. The White House says the flight was unannounced “for security reasons.”

    Why do I feel the president is more secure on this trip than on any announced “town meeting” in the US?

  81. [re=542691]Servo[/re]: The new fascisms are brewing, except it will not be in the name of the state that they will fight and kill for, but for lack of government. The true neo-nazis are the neo-conservative anarchists Irony indeed.

    That’s under the generous assumption, of course, that these fuckers half as much zeal and courgage for their cause that the original fascists slime balls had. Not that that would be a hard stranded to live up to, but still…

  82. [re=542511]St.SarahOfThePO[/re]:
    Since Todd looks and acts like a pussy, I’m sure Quitter Barbie dictates when and how the sex act takes place.

    Once she has is queen of the world, Todd won’t be included in any more sex acts with his dingbat.

  83. [re=542546]Hemp Dogbane[/re]: You almost had me fooled too. Your talents are going to waste here–you’ve got their crap down so good, you should be messing with their minds over at redstate or free republic.

  84. You know, the thing about the original Evita Peron was that her cause (Peronism) was somewhat progressive in its political aims (it was also quasi-fascist, but hey nothing perfect). And she had some class. We, on the other hand, get a proudly trailer trash reactionary. America can’t do nothing right.

  85. Laugh now wonketteteers. However, remember that a mediocre and intellectually barren mediocre actor who co-starred with a chimp in a movie so bad that it is a camp classic and pimped detergent on the horse opera t.v. show “Death Valley Days” in the 60s was elected President twice. P.S. The Babs quotes were unrelated to the topic, in poor taste, but hilarious. It did not take long for Obamacare to scoop up its first death panel contestant. Maybe the Katrina refugees in the Silverdome she so lovingly spoke about will send her get well cards.

  86. [re=542691]Servo[/re]: And, of course it occurs to none of them that their manifesto reflects a desire for a bizarre marriage of fascism and theocracy. If they ever get it, I suspect one or two will become disillusioned with the result.

  87. [re=542704]Que miras, cabron![/re]: Regan actually made an effort to try to be the semblance of a real politician. Alaskan Fascist Barbie here seems intent on seeming to be, and actually being, a celebrity fame whore.

  88. [re=542705]St.SarahOfThePO[/re]: I’m thinkin’ (that’s always dangerous) that Franco might have been a theocratic fascist. The Teatards been able to get a few hard corps nobortion Papists in the same tent with protestant fundaments and a very light sprinkling of kosher West Bank developers. Damn few Muslins it seems, damn few.

  89. [re=542705]St.SarahOfThePO[/re]: Bizarre? The only thing bizarre about a marriage of fascism and theocracy is your variant spelling of “completely unsurprising.” Servo’s teabagger list of principles makes the five blind men describing the elephant look like an omniscient narrator.

  92. [re=542691]Servo[/re]: I was handed that pamphlet last year by a contractor servicing a collection tank for Entranosa Water at 35.07394631091687, -106.27841234207153 while

    A new coherence principle: (Also.)
    The Natural Law Party is fundamentally dedicated to the development of the full potential of the individual. Apart from economic considerations, long-term use of even mild hallucinogens like marijuana has been shown to decrease EEG coherence — the orderly and integrated functioning of the brain. Brain wave coherence is linked to intelligence, creativity, learning ability, academic performance, moral reasoning, psychological stability, and emotional maturity. Legalizing drugs could send the wrong signal to the youth, implying that drug use is not that harmful.

  93. Here’s the Natural Law Party website, for those who dare

    Well, I must say, in their defense, they are anti-imperialist/anti-war,(albeit arriving at that conclusion by conservatard reasoning) and they are not completely opposed to the idea of unions or welfare.

    But yeah, they very laughable. As would be any group that seems to have uncritically brought into the static and mechanical view of the universe that’s a sad parody of what Aristotle actually stated and even is an insult to the old tub o’lard, Aquinas. Its not even genuinely Christian (in my view at least) because the coming of Christ and Kingdom throws “natural” distinctions on its head. The Incarnation marks the beginning of a new heaven and earth, not a continuation of the same old same old, as was the normative view of the universe in most pagan religions.

    That aside..its kinda ironic on multiple levals that they have a pink colored website, don’t you think ?

  94. Oh and the Natural Law partiers (not really as catchy as Teapartier is it ?) is effectively a zombie org by this time. Thanks be to Jesus and St. Mary His Mother !

  95. [re=542727]Sleeves[/re]: So weed should be illegal because it might not be harmless. I assume the natural law people hold a consistent viewpoint with regard to gun control, of course.

  96. [re=542728]Marxist Leninist Papist[/re]: Recent news = 2004? BTW, like your new avatar. Are you retiring Leaping Leon, or just giving him a rest?

  97. [re=542732]weejee[/re]: Thanks for the compliment, as to old Trotsky, I am probably just giving him a bit of a rest. I think my online cred as a commie (of the virtual type at least) is assured, just trying to emphasis that I am not shitting people with the Papist part of the user name. Beside, St. Joan of Arc, a female peasant who overcame multiple obstacles of prejudice set up by Church and State to become an influential leader and symbol for France’s medieval “national war of liberation”… whatever else she is to the eyes of faith, that’s a revolutionary hero !

  98. The Natural Law Party was the political arm of Transcendental Meditation (which teaches you how to rise above your teeth).

    Maybe 20 years ago, they made a public appeal to the mayor here in Buffalo to give them a chance to reduce prison violence by teaching the techniques of TM to the inmates. Hizzoner (who went on to challenge Bill Clinton in the ’96 Vermont primary, for teatarded reasons) never did return their calls.

  99. [re=542733]Marxist Leninist Papist[/re]: I thought Marxism was proudly materialist, and poopoo’d all this supernatural and hierarchical religiousness nonsense. Did I miss something here?

  100. [re=542737]Bearbloke[/re]: Look up Liberation Theology, and you may understand where I am coming from.

    Or you may consider the observation of the trenchant Scotch philosopher Alister Macintyre that Marx’s materialism consists essentially in the proposition that Being precedes the mind, not the equation of reality with an inate, crude, matter. Which is an idea that any theist would agree is primie facie right.

    Or you can just meditate on those truisms that opposites attract and extremes tend to converge at the same point…

  101. Hey! The Clark County, Nevada, District Attorney’s office says
    it will be filing a felony arrest warrant tomorrow against the Tea Party of Nevada’s candidate for U.S. Senate, Scott Ashjian, on felony theft and bad check charges.

    Ashjian claims it’s a setup by the GOP to neutralize him, because he would have split the vote, allowing Reid to win.

    Salon has a story claiming the GOP has been working hard to get rid of him.

    Don’t know how reputable the Las Vegas Democrat Examiner, the source, is. Don’t trust Salon. Locals?

  102. [re=542740]Marxist Leninist Papist[/re]: I understood the impetus of Liberation Theology as embodying the ideas of inherent human dignity, exemplified by the logistics of the Incarnation, and of the radical interpretation of Xtian Charity and Xtian Community, both Temporally and Spiritually in service to and creation of the Brotherhood of Mankind. Still, how does one square the Marxism with the Papist hierarchical, systemic oppression and greed and so forth?

  103. [re=542743]Katydid[/re]: Good find! The author’s bio says that he’s a Demrat activist FWTW. One of the linkies to another bit by the same author talks about how some other Nevada TeaTarders, of differing flavors than Tea Party Nevada, think that Ashijain is Reid’s bitch.

    I’m surprised at all the flavors of Tea Partiers, would thought they all would have been good ol’ ‘Merican Lipton in the jar. None of that socialist green or herbal for them.

  104. [re=542750]Bearbloke[/re]: One seeks to remake the hierarchy into a more fluid, bottom-to-top system of power. This is what the Christian based communities created in South Americia and elsewhere tried, (and in some places, still try) to do.

    More theologically, one needs to distinguish in thought and practice between the “chaste whore” (as the Patristic Fathers called it) that is the visible body of the Church, with its corrupted ranks legalism, and ritualism, and the spiritual, invisible body of the Church which is the located wherever genuine faith, hope, and love are practiced. Both are in a sense necessary in the providential plan of the Church in the era of the interim, until the fulfillment of the Kingdom.

  105. [re=542755]Marxist Leninist Papist[/re]: As far as seeking “to remake the hierarchy”, you’ve got, what, 1500 yeas worth of corruption and inertia and power-politics to work through. And what would be the Marxist understanding of ‘the Kingdom’?

  106. [re=542705]St.SarahOfThePO[/re]:
    The religion/freedom contradictions are laughable. However, the white-hot rage that blinds them from the theocracy-at-gunpoint parallels they share with the Taliban is disturbing. They’re too stupid to realize the self-destructive nature of their dastardly plans.

  107. [re=542753]weejee[/re]: is it possible to register oneself with ALL the flavours of Tea-Tard? Be sure to bring your largest stirring-paddle, since there’s bound to be much shit to be stirred…

  108. Well, let us be optimistic; if mankind in general eventually was able to cast aside the chains of slavery, feudalism, and monarchy (millenia old corruption, inertia, andpower politics right there), Catholic can have some hope for the building of a more horizontal,transparent, and democratic ecclesiastical body politic.

    A Marxist-Catholic understanding of the Kingdom would emphasize the Kingdom as the this world embodiment of God in a global communism of all, a classless union of nations, races,genders, and (yes) sexual orientations under the banner of the Cross. We are the Body of Christ; we are the fulfillment (to a certain extant) of the promise of the emancipation of the captives, the giving of sight to the blind, and the granting of strength to the lame. And this conception of the Kingdom emphasizes the need for political and economic struggle, here and now, for the sake of the Gospel. Not to mention it would bring to the fore front the ways in which science and technology make way for the victory of God,as opposed to being treated “heathen” or “blasphemous” products of human pride.

  109. [re=542769]Marxist Leninist Papist[/re]: “if mankind in general eventually was able to cast aside the chains of slavery, feudalism, and monarchy…”

    These things still exist at this very moment – quite profitably, thank you – across most of the world. But thanks for trying, mate…

  111. [re=542783]Bearbloke[/re]: Anytime, though I am curious where you get you statistics from, particularly for the “monarchy” bit. Thought we made a pretty good sweep of old style royals…

  112. [re=542801]Bearbloke[/re]: Well, but the Queen of England, (and most other modern “monarchs”) are just over priced figure heads, not the really powerful ruling caste of old. And while there are more slaves than ever before, they make up a smaller proportion of the general population than ever before ( And finally, the wiki article you supplied only shows vestiges of feudalism in two modern countries; that still does not disprove the fact that it has vanished from the vast majority of modern states. The very existence of developed, bourgeoisie democratic nations like Japan, Germany, and the United States, with all their flaws, proves that progress can be made by human beings. And thus, ergo, change is possible for the Church of Rome.

  115. [re=542701]BlueStateLibtard[/re]: I went to Redstate once a few years ago after reading about some College Republican asshole or another, wasted part of an afternoon in wonderment. Not ever going back. I’ll stay here. Prefer grammatically correct verbal abuse.

    [re=542805]Marxist Leninist Papist[/re]: The system of the negative, the Other, good/evil… all hinges on an orderly balance in each individual, IMHO. As goes the person, so go the people, yadda yadda. It’s necessarily a collective impulse. If we have faith that personkind as a species is making evolutionary progress as opposed to just genetically flailing around in the muck, then hopefully it’s converging on a shared consciousness. The optimism on progressive change in “The Church” is one I can’t share because, though it is a long view, I don’t think it’s long enough. If the communist utopia unfurls through some miracle(ha!) of evolved society, there will be no more “The Church”. I guess I could see your point if Ratzinger suddenly dissolved the Vatican’s holdings and passed the money out equally amongst the people. That would be progressive, Marxist evolution!

[re=542727]Sleeves[/re]: I don’t know what the fuck these people are thinking of, but one time I was up most of the night studying for a political philosophy class and got a couple of hours sort of sleep before the exam. (Note to students: Also sleep at least an hour or two. Helps do something to your brain that helps on the test. You’re welcome.) I kept mumbling “Jean Jacques Rousseau” in my sleep. Ever since, I’ve figured that Rousseau would have loved pot.
