Moving along . . . She's not going away

Don't know about the rest of you, but the all-Palin all-the-time thing is finally getting old.

She's not going away, we're not going to uncover a family sex scandal that they haven't already outed themselves and made part of her faith and character. Just like Cindy McCain's addiction to drugs, and theft of same from her charity, shows she's -- just like Rush Limbaugh? (Except he has no charity, only his cleaning lady.)More scat ahead.

The left has been immobilized by the maven of all things moose. We've been sitting at our computers, sending around one more clip of Jon Stewart, one more photo-shopped pic of Palin, one more time-line of her cover-up pregnancy, one more version of book-banning, true or false. Ain't gonna do no one no good come November 4.

Wonder if we, and I include myself in that, had spent this same time at Obama headquarters helping out, identifying and registering voters. Or sent a buck for every email we forwarded. Lots of collective hours and dollars out there.

If we don't cut this stuff out, they win. In a way, they already have. It's sort of like stripping down to fly on an airplane. The terrorists can claim a small victory when all travel and sporting events and concerts and rallies are gummed up by required pat-downs and bag searches.

The Palin obsession has gummed up our energy, big time. Even those Repubs who are not in step with Palin's stand on social issues, but are worried about Obama's fiscal policies (ie., their taxes going up) are dancing a little jig as they see us wile away the hours fixated on this stuff. So stop already.

And another thing. Do not start calling Barack, Barry. Do not carry their water for them. Do not send around anything by the likes of Jonah Goldberg or Dick Morris. I'm declaring a moratorium on anything written by assholes -- my own stuff excepted. I do not want to read anymore of their glib and gloating e-turds. Ix-nay on the it-shay.

We know that the press has been deep in a cult-like cranio-rectal inversion session for the last 8 or so years. They are smitten by Sarah Palin, fascinated at America's obsession with her, and can't get in enough swipes at yesterday's golden boy, Barack Obama. And that's just the liberal press.

Goldberg and Kristol and Morris have been in the inversion posture so long they've turned into polyps. And let's drop this line of thinking before I get to Sean Hannity or Billow or Rush. But I refuse to open any more forwarded emails, telling me that it's important to see how the other side thinks. I know where there heads are, I don't think so.

I'd like to tell you that this is my last Palin post. Not another word about Bristol and Levi and Willow and the Trigster. But I'd be lying. Because there's not really all that much else to her. And hypocrisy is such a fun vein to mine.

How bout this - for every Palin post or email, dig up a Biden story, quotes from his speeches, announcements of planned events,anything. Post em as comments on any post you can find that'll let ya.
Don't know if it matters, but I for one find him energizing. Good zingers. Impassioned. Accessible.
And maybe eventually O and his team will get it together and figure out how to win this mess. Where are his ads?
And yes, send money.

I was asking people the same thing today. (About the ads.)
Right now he's on Letterman, maybe a rerun, don't know, and he's being very serious in his answers to serious questions. Good for him. But Letterman just said he doesn't have the brain power for the answer he's given. Says it makes his head hurt. ie., you're boring me. (And it wasn't all that difficult to follow if you have more than a gnat's attention span. But Letterman is everyman i fear.
I think Clinton turned his ratings around when he played the sax on Leno or one of them, no? Clinton made this all seem fun. That just doesn't come easily to Obama.
Okay, he just lightened up a bit talking about going to Disney Land as a kid. He's trying, but it's not his default position.
And the pit bull is going to be at her best on these shows.

Oh crikey, now they're talking about Africa and all the good things Bush has done there. Most Americans don't know much about Africa and don't give a fig. (As evidenced by the pin-drop silence of the audience.) Now Letterman asks him about Haiti. What is this, review all the nations populated and governed by black people? Yep, now we're on to N'Orleans, post Katrina.
His answers are right, albeit a tad too respectful of those responsible for the disasters of the last 8 years. Hit 'em Barack, dammit.

What an excellent post. Ever since the announcement of Palin, the media and the blogspere has been obsessed with that woman. She does not deserve to the notice and obviously can hold up to any scrutiny. Let's get back to writing about the important matters...

Obama, is a gentleman and a scholar. He's not a moose
killer kind of soul but a soul that is compassionate and understanding. Here is a man whose qualifications are excellent, but is called an elitist because of his accomplishments; a man whose words are well chosen, but twisted by his opponents to sound chauvinistic. The list could go on but why bother as I would sound bitter (which I am) regarding the McCain/Palin lies.
My hope is for good debates and that people will listen, like, really truly listen for the "Change" that Obama and Biden
are proposing. Amen and amen.

The Palin Circus is in town and sooner or later all will have seen the acts and they will quit buying tickets and she will go away.

After the first presidential debate, the discussion will become serious, which at that point in time, most Americans will be looking for a serious discussion, and the Palin distraction will look silly.

If the Biden/Pail debate goes well, she will be toast.

Dont' fret about Fox News. Anyone who buys that venom isn't going to vote for Obama anyway.

The electoral votes! Contact your friends in the swing states, MI, OH, PA, FL, CO, NM, VI. That is what matters.

I think Biden's doing a great job, but I wonder just how he should handle the pit bull in the debate? That could really be the turning point.
As for swing states, I was just in Michigan for over two months. During the conventions, I saw about 12 TV ads for McCain to every one for Obama. Just wondering what's up with that?
But as of today I got a sense that the tide is turning. The bounce is going to go foul any day now. Hoping.

What's the difference between Dan Quail and Sarah Palin?
