do not be fooled for a second.

Do not let McCain convince you that he is trying to get away from the GOP establishment. His first opportunity to prove he wanted to bring change to Washington. Instead, he picked Sarah Palin, who is not a “pitbull in lipstick” so much as she is “George Bush in drag.” This is a candidate who:

  • supports a near total ban on abortions. Please note also that the GOP platform now officially seeks a constitutional amendment banning abortion. We’re not talking about overturning Roe v. Wade (something even McCain used to be opposed to) and making it a state-by-state issue. That means no abortions in Chicago and New York (where all the tastiest abortions are served in the finest restaurants) (what?).
  • would like to know how to go about banning books.
  • has no qualms about putting politics above qualifications within her administration. The librarian who resisted the book-banning was fired, as was a state trooper who was getting divorced from Palin’s sister.
  • sued the Bush administration for being too environmentally friendly. Say that last sentence a few times and try not to have a stroke.
  • is — after tens of thousands of human history, from Archimedes to Galileo to Newton to Einstein — not keen on science: not evolution, not global warming
  • supports things because they are God’s will: like oil pipelines and the Iraq war.
Putting aside the fact that she could get swept into power if McCain dies, putting aside the experience and other more lurid scandals, her choice shows that McCain either has no clue how to bring about change in DC, is unwilling to do so, or is susceptible to the pressure of the GOP in making his decisions. Enough.
I have donated more money to Obama since the Palin speech. I ask you to do the same.

    Palin also has her history facts wrong (note her comments on the Pledge), she asked WHAT exactly the job of the Vice President is, only applied for her first pastport EVER last year (thus obviously leaving her more qualified in areas concerning foreign policy/affairs), has already plummeted Alaska into more than $20 million dollar of debt following only 20 months in offce, obviously believes that the only “effective” means of sex education is an abstinence-only approach, when asked about the war in Iraq INITIALLY CONFESSED to NOT REALLY FOLLOWING IT or knowing much about it (yet now says the US in close to winning the war), was in favor (as recently as two years ago) of Alaska suceding from the US, is in favor of killing polar bears via drilling the Alaskan Wildlife Preserves (joking that she wishes polar bears weren’t extinct so that she could hunt them LEGALLY -like that has/will stopped her), likes to shoot defenseless animals from planes, spent the entirety of her speech putting down Obama, and arguing that Obama is a terrorist (seriously… and what makes McCain thinks he can hunt down terrorists if he and his regime couldn’t even figure out Palin’s daughter is obviously preggers?)…. and that’s just the beginning of this lunatic bitch’s perspectives (though she has neglected to inform anyone of what she ACTUALLY intends to do about ANYTHING plauging the country -probably b/c she uses the same speech writers as GWB -meaning it really is the same Bush underneath that damn skirt!).

    Let us know when you write something incredible about this tiara-toting, gun slinging, trash-taking, inept mother-of-the-year so that I can forward it to my friends. I actually live in a state that, unfortunately, is typically red but actually has a chance in hell of going blue!!!!

    Given everything we know, I’m so pained that people are actually endorsing McCain/Palin (and putting CUNT-ry before country) that I need some Percocet and/or Vicodin. Quick, does anyone have Cindy McCain’s number?

    I’ve lost your email and wanted to let you know that I’m trying to get the Chicago bloggers together for dinner/drinks on Monday the 15th. Lacey from Perks of Being a Jap will be visiting. We’re meeting at 7 at Giordanos on Lake. Afterward, if people are up for it, we’ll hit up the Big Bar for some drinks. It’d be awesome if you could join us 🙂
