War pig with lipstick

Sarah Palin in her first interview.

On her knowledge of the Cold War:
PALIN: We are thankful that, under Reagan, we won the Cold War, without a shot fired, also.

Korea, Viet Nam, Cambodia... never happened.

Ready to go to war with Russia:
GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn’t we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?
PALIN: Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help.

The full interview. She sounds like she doesn't know what she's talking about. She just memorized a bunch of cue cards.

From now on, anyone who plans to vote for McCain is a confirmed retard.

And don't think about moving to Canada. If the US goes to war with Russia, so does Canada.

Palin is a symbol. And a dangerous. one. Don't under-estimate it. God, family, mom, military, the American flag and apple pie are potent symbols owned by the GOP.

Since at least Reagan, Americans do not vote according to intelligence or with who has the best stance issues. They vote in accordance with feelings and gut reactions. Democrats lose because they over-estimate the intelligence and savvy of people while under-estimating the power of symbols and simplicity.

What's associated with Democrats? Elite, aristocratic, tree-hugging, effeminate, abortion, French, Muslim, weak and gay. And working to destroy the military, family, God, and tradition. They may be right on the issues, but does it matter to most Americans?

People will vote against their own self-interests in favor of good feelings. Dems seem too proud to effectively use propaganda. A compelling commercial even if its full of lies is better than than all the solid ideas in the world when it comes to winning votes.

Beware the lipstick.

It seems it's more important to be decisive than to know what you're decisive about.

Exactly, and that's why an idiot like Bill O'Reilly is so beloved by many of my countrymen. People in the United States are encouraged to speak their opinion and get out and vote, yet nothing is said about being educated and informed. I guess it really wouldn't matter either way, as tainted ink put it, the GOP has the monopoly on religion, and that's what most people here care about. Of course, it's even worse in the bible belt, where I reside. The state elections where I live basically boil down to "I'm a bigger christian than he is!", sure there are other issues, but being labeled "liberal" here is the political kiss of death.

A statement that really scared me had been made shortly after Palin's speech at the RNC, "She really showed that anyone can be President" (admittedly I'm paraphrasing a bit here, and this was made by an interviewee for the Daily Show) but that's supposed to be a good thing?!

Hopefully, people are smart enough to vote for Obama.

Americans like a giant, brazen pair of balls. The Republicans have no problem swinging theirs around even if its with outright lies. I noticed McCain is now using the "Change" slogan after its been Obama's for years now. That takes a pair!

On the flip side Obama who was very inspirational and bold in his speeches at first has sounded kind of tired and flustered lately. He stutters in interviews and seems a bit uneasy. Someone needs to give the man about a gallon of Red Bull. And he also needs to grow a pair and fight back ferociously and quickly.

Nice guys finish last.

So let's see here...

Hillary Clinton has been hypnotized
John McCain is a desperate bigot
Barack Obama is losing steam from the maintenance of his 'political charm'.

And this isn't an episode of South Park or Family Guy, why? 7:^\

(Or have the writers of those shows done a little hacking on our universe?) ;^D

"We end war when we see victory, and we do see victory in sight in Iraq. "
-Sarah Palin, proclaiming her belief in Final Victory.
Is she waiting for Steiner's battlegroup to come drive the "insurgents" out of Iraq as well...?

First time I ever remember people arguing more about the vice presidential candidate than the presidential one. Either way, Barrack, McCain, neither are suitable candidates. I say we vote for Putin and get it over with. Then we can all feel happy and together in the fact that we all hate the president.

He's already got a country to screw up more than it already is, he doesn't need this one.

Same anonymous.
Actually, I've never watched South Park. But see? Already we all agree Putin in charge would be bad. Nice to have something to agree on isn't it? :)

At least Putin makes the trains run on time. And just look at the brand new Autobahn!

When did Russia become the Evil Empire again? I must have missed a meeting.

I thought China was the evil one now and that the Bush administration wants to us to believe all of the middle east is evil.

I've just found something right up your alley:

"A group called Anonymous has claimed responsibility for the hacking of Mrs Palin's Yahoo e-mail."

This anonymous group has taken on Palin and Scientology or so they say I think I like this group... So long as they don't try and steal my identity.

Yeah, I saw. On Michelle Malkin's blog, commenters were talking about attacking 4chan...


Good luck with that.
