More Musings about Obama & Sarah and the election...

More Musings...

If you are a liberal and your unwed daughter gets pregnant, it's "immoral".

If you are a conservative, it's called "family values".

If a Democrat uses his children for photo opportunities, he's exploiting

If Republican uses her children for photo opportunities, she's a "proud
hockey mom".

If you are a Democrat and the media digs into your past and prints it,
it is called "good journalism and getting to the truth".

If you are a Republican and they do the same thing, it is called a
"smear campaign".

If you have studied international affairs for several decades, you're
"inexperienced at foreign affairs".

If you live in a state that is geographically near a foreign country,
you have "foreign policy expertise".

If you're a Black woman, with advanced academic degrees, and you have
children while married, you're a "baby mama". (F**K Fox News for saying that about Michelle Obama!)

If you're a white woman who barely graduated from college, and you get
knocked up and then get married after you're pregnant, you're a "SuperMom".

If you're a Republican and your underage daughter gets pregnant out of
wedlock, it's a "blessing."

If you're a Democrat and you get a blow job, it's a matter for the
Supreme Court.

If you're a young American serviceman abused by enemy captors on a daily
basis, you're a hero who stoically endured inhumane torture and put
country first.

If you're a young Arab or Pakistani grabbed in a battle zone, shipped to
an American military prison by way of a third country, and held
indefinitely without trial, you're a vicious Islamic terrorist who
doesn't deserve to be treated like a human being.

If you're a Republican, you swear Jesus is a registered member of your

If you're a Democrat, you appreciate that Jesus was a community organizer.

If you chant "Drill, Baby, Drill" you are positing an effective and
responsible energy plan, science and logic be damned.

If you chant "Yes, We Can" you are a mindless automaton.

If you're a Republican with a questionable academic background, you're a
champion of American education.

If you're a Democrat who was editor of the Harvard Law Review, you want
to destroy America's schools.

If you're a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton, the right-wing press calls you "First Dog."

If you're a 17-year old pregnant unwed daughter of a Republican, the right-wing press calls you "beautiful" and "courageous."

If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, left your
disfigured wife, and married the heiress the next month, you're a

If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years and raised 2
beautiful daughters, you're "risky".

If you're a Democrat and you prefer wine over beer, you are an "elitist."

If you're a Republican and you prefer a beer heiress over your first
wife, you are a "committed family man."

If you spend 18 months building a campaign around the theme of "Change,"
it's just "empty rhetoric."

If one week before your party's national convention you SUDDENLY make
your candidacy about "Change," that's "red meat."

If you're Black and never served in the military, but fight for veterans
benefits and were right in predicting the disastrous Iraq war would be a
mistake, you don't care about the troops.

If you're a white former POW and spend 26 years in the Senate while voting
against virtually every bill put forward to help veterans, and want to
stay in Iraq indefinitely, you're a hero.

If you're a Republican president and you engage in illegal war costing
4000+ lives, bankrupt the country, and legalize torture and spy on US
citizens, that's okay, because Jesus is your favorite political thinker.

If you're a Democratic president and you generate the largest increases
in wealth for all economic classes, preside over a balanced budget, and
create an unprecedented surplus, you get impeached.


'Nuff said, for now...

Musings about Obama & Sarah and the election...

If you use your ivy league education to help Americans whose jobs have
been outsourced, you are a failure.

If you get 18 million people to vote for you in a national presidential
primary, you're a "phoney."

If you get 100,000+ people to vote you governor of the 47th most
populous state in the Union, you're "well loved."

If you are biracial and born in a state not connected to the lower 48,
America needs darn near 2 years and 3 major speeches to "get to know you."

needs 36 minutes and 38 seconds worth of an acceptance speech to know
you're "one of us."

then work your way up to being the president of the Harvard Law Review,
you're "uppity."

University . . . you only have four more schools to attend over the next
five years before you somehow manage to graduate.



F**k Sarah Palin...

If this is actually true, then this chick can forever kiss my ass!!

Credit goes to The Field Negro Blog and The Daily Kos for this story.


A quote is below after a waitress overheard Sarah Palin say after hearing that Barack Obama beat Hilary Clinton for the Democratic Nomination:

"So Sambo beat the bitch!"

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

According to Lucille, the waitress serving her table at the time and who asked that her last name not be used, Gov. Palin was eating lunch with five or six people when the subject of the Democrat’s primary battle came up. The governor, seemingly not caring that people at nearby tables would likely hear her, uttered the slur and then laughed loudly as her meal mates joined in appreciatively.

"It was kind of disgusting," Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the "lower 48" about life near the North Pole.

Then, almost with a sigh, she added, "But that’s just Alaska."


There are numerous articles on the web about this whole thing.

If this is actually true, then Sarah can go straight to Hell!!

Alaska Independence Party & Sarah Palin...

Damn, Sarah...

Alaska Independence Party: 2nd Secessionist Convention, 10/3-4/07

I guess I was wrong...

Sarah Palin actually does have foreign policy experience.

She appears to have wanted to turn America into one.

Reasons to be concerned about Sarah Palin...

Did McCain REALLY do his research or "vetting" to know who the Hell his running mate is and what she stands for?

I don't think so!!

Read on...


Reasons to be concerned about Sarah Palin...

Palin Slashed Funding for Teen Moms. Whe reduced funding for Covenant House Alaska by more than 20 percent, cutting funds from $5 million to $3.9 million. Covenant House is a mix of programs and shelters for troubled youths, including Passage House, which is a transitional home for teenage mothers. (Washington Post)

2. Her Views on Sex Education. When she ran for governor of Alaska in 2006, Sarah Palin was asked if she would support abstinence-before-marriage programs over sex education, school clinics and contraceptive distribution. She was firm in her answer: "Explicit sex ed programs will not find my support." (San Francisco Chronicle)

3. Few Mayoral Accomplishments. Before she was elected governor, she was mayor of a tiny Anchorage suburb, where her greatest accomplishment was raising the sales tax to build a hockey rink.

4. She Was "For It’ Before She Was "Against It!" As a candidate for governor in 2006, Palin had backed funding the infamous "bridge to nowhere." After her election, she killed the much-ridiculed project when it became clear the state had other priorities. (LA Times) She then kept federal funds allotted for it after the deal fell through. (CBS News)

5. Pork Barrel Spending. Palin hired DC lobbyists to help direct nearly $27 million in pork projects to the town of Wasilla. And today we learn that McCain has actually condemned some of the very earmarks his running mate and her lobbyists secured. (CBS News)

6. More Pork Barrel Spending. This year she submitted to Congress a list of Alaska projects worth $197.8 million, including $2 million to research crab productivity in the Bering Sea and $7.4 million to improve runway lighting at eight Alaska airports. A spokesman said she cut the original list of 54 projects to 31. (LA Times)

7. Does Not Put "Country First." She has vocally supported the Alaskan Independence Party, a group that has long pushed for a statewide vote on whether Alaska should secede from those same United States. (LA Times)

8. Campaign Contributions Nightmare. She accepted $5,000 in campaign contributions in 2001 from executives of Veco Corp., an Anchorage-based oil-services company, when she was running for lieutenant governor. Veco is at the heart of a federal investigation of alleged political corruption; two executives pleaded guilty last year to bribing state politicians. (

9. Another Scandalous Probe. A separate probe, initiated by the Alaska Legislature, is looking into Palin’s dismissal of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan in July. Monegan has said he was pressed by members of the governor’s family and administration to fire a state trooper who was involved in a contentious divorce from Palin’s sister. (

10. Palin’s Own Crazy Preacher. From the age of 12 and for most of her adult life, Sarah Palin attended the Wasilla Assembly of God. the church’s preacher, Ed Kalinins preached that critics of President Bush will be banished to hell; questioned whether people who voted for Sen. John Kerry in 2004 would be accepted to heaven; charged that the 9/11 terrorist attacks and war in Iraq were part of a war "contending for your faith;" and said that Jesus "operated from that position of war mode." (The Huffington Post) Speaking to school of ministry graduates gathered at Wasilla Assembly of God on June 8, Palin asked the crowd to pray for the corporate cooperation necessary to build a $30 billion natural gas pipeline across Alaska. (Chicago Tribune)

11. She’s a Creationist. As a candidate for governor, Palin called for teaching creationism alongside evolution in Alaska’s public schools. She has not made clear whether she accepts the theory of evolution as fact. (Associated Press)

12. Does Not Believe Global Warming is Caused by Man. "A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location," Palin recently told Newsmax, an Internet news site. "I’m not one though who would attribute it to being manmade." (Associated Press)

13. Banning Books. As mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, she sought to have 90 books banned from the local library and threatened to fire the librarian. (Time Magazine) Entire list of proposed banned books below (

14. Lagniappe!: Details also emerged about the father of Bristol Palin’s child. He is Levi Johnston, 18, a high school ice hockey player. He describes himself on his MySpace page as a "f****** red-neck". He says that he has a girlfriend but "I don’t want kids". Last night Levi’s mother said that he was heading for the convention to meet the Palin family. (London Times)


Concerned yet?

Inaccuracies in Palin Speech and McCain Rhetoric Detalied...

Much respect for Mo'Kelly for originally posting this.

Check it out below:


PALIN: "I have protected the taxpayers by vetoing wasteful spending ... and championed reform to end the abuses of earmark spending by Congress. I told the Congress 'thanks but no thanks' for that Bridge to Nowhere."

THE FACTS: As mayor of Wasilla, Palin hired a lobbyist and traveled to Washington annually to support earmarks for the town totaling $27 million. In her two years as governor, Alaska has requested nearly $750 million in special federal spending, by far the largest per-capita request in the nation. While Palin notes she rejected plans to build a $398 million bridge from Ketchikan to an island with 50 residents and an airport, that opposition came only after the plan was ridiculed nationally as a "bridge to nowhere."

PALIN: "There is much to like and admire about our opponent. But listening to him speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform — not even in the state senate."

THE FACTS: Compared to McCain and his two decades in the Senate, Obama does have a more meager record. But he has worked with Republicans to pass legislation that expanded efforts to intercept illegal shipments of weapons of mass destruction and to help destroy conventional weapons stockpiles. The legislation became law last year. To demean that accomplishment would be to also demean the work of Republican Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana, a respected foreign policy voice in the Senate. In Illinois, he was the leader on two big, contentious measures in Illinois: studying racial profiling by police and requiring recordings of interrogations in potential death penalty cases. He also successfully co-sponsored major ethics reform legislation.

PALIN: "The Democratic nominee for president supports plans to raise income taxes, raise payroll taxes, raise investment income taxes, raise the death tax, raise business taxes, and increase the tax burden on the American people by hundreds of billions of dollars."

THE FACTS: The Tax Policy Center, a think tank run jointly by the Brookings Institution and the Urban Institute, concluded that Obama's plan would increase after-tax income for middle-income taxpayers by about 5 percent by 2012, or nearly $2,200 annually. McCain's plan, which cuts taxes across all income levels, would raise after tax-income for middle-income taxpayers by 3 percent, the center concluded.

Obama would provide $80 billion in tax breaks, mainly for poor workers and the elderly, including tripling the Earned Income Tax Credit for minimum-wage workers and higher credits for larger families.

He also would raise income taxes, capital gains and dividend taxes on the wealthiest. He would raise payroll taxes on taxpayers with incomes above $250,000, and he would raise corporate taxes. Small businesses that make more than $250,000 a year would see taxes rise.

MCCAIN: "She's been governor of our largest state, in charge of 20 percent of America's energy supply ... She's responsible for 20 percent of the nation's energy supply. I'm entertained by the comparison and I hope we can keep making that comparison that running a political campaign is somehow comparable to being the executive of the largest state in America," he said in an interview with ABC News' Charles Gibson.

THE FACTS: McCain's phrasing exaggerates both claims. Palin is governor of a state that ranks second nationally in crude oil production, but she's no more "responsible" for that resource than President Bush was when he was governor of Texas, another oil-producing state. In fact, her primary power is the ability to tax oil, which she did in concert with the Alaska Legislature. And where Alaska is the largest state in America, McCain could as easily have called it the 47th largest state — by population.

MCCAIN: "She's the commander of the Alaska National Guard. ... She has been in charge, and she has had national security as one of her primary responsibilities," he said on ABC.

THE FACTS: While governors are in charge of their state guard units, that authority ends whenever those units are called to actual military service. When guard units are deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, for example, they assume those duties under "federal status," which means they report to the Defense Department, not their governors. Alaska's national guard units have a total of about 4,200 personnel, among the smallest of state guard organizations.

FORMER ARKANSAS GOV. MIKE HUCKABEE: Palin "got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States."

THE FACTS: A whopper. Palin got 616 votes in the 1996 mayor's election, and got 909 in her 1999 re-election race, for a total of 1,525. Biden dropped out of the race after the Iowa caucuses, but he still got 76,165 votes in 23 states and the District of Columbia where he was on the ballot during the 2008 presidential primaries.

FORMER MASSACHUSETTS GOV. MITT ROMNEY: "We need change, all right — change from a liberal Washington to a conservative Washington! We have a prescription for every American who wants change in Washington — throw out the big-government liberals, and elect John McCain and Sarah Palin."

THE FACTS: A Back-to-the-Future moment. George W. Bush, a conservative Republican, has been president for nearly eight years. And until last year, Republicans controlled Congress. Only since January 2007 have Democrats have been in charge of the House and Senate.


Lie, lie, and more lies.

Oh, it must be Election Time...

What's the difference?

This is what happens when conservative politicians claim to be more "moral" and "upstanding" than everyone else. This is what happens when politicos claim "Family Values" for some people, but call others "whores" and "immoral" for their behavior.

Here's something for all of those Republicans that bitch and complain at the media's treatment of Sarah Palin's daughter's "situation" but all but forgot THEIR OWN TREATMENT of others in the same predicament.
