Why I’m so excited about Rand Paul!

The scale of the Tea Baggers’ inevitable spectacular failure continues to grow as the general public learns more about what “smaller government” really means.

Palin’s Couric Interview

The drilla from Waslilla was the recipient of another merciless grilling by the lieberal media today. This time the interrogator was rabid lefty Katie Couric (or should I say Comrade Couric?) Kudos to Sarah Barracuda for standing up to those pinkos who just want to make her look uninformed by ambushing her with trick questions. They will pay when the Palin/McCain administration takes over.

COURIC: You’ve said, quote, “John McCain will reform the way Wall Street does business.” Other than supporting stricter regulations of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac two years ago, can you give us any more example of his leading the charge for more oversight?

PALIN: I think that the example that you just cited, with his warnings two years ago about Fannie and Freddie–that, that’s paramount. That’s more than a heck of a lot of other senators and representatives did for us.

COURIC: But he’s been in Congress for 26 years. He’s been chairman of the powerful Commerce Committee. And he has almost always sided with less regulation, not more.

PALIN: He’s also known as the maverick though. Taking shots from his own party, and certainly taking shots from the other party. Trying to get people to understand what he’s been talking about–the need to reform government.

COURIC: I’m just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in his 26 years of pushing for more regulation?

PALIN: I’ll try to find you some and I’ll bring them to you.

I think the most patriotic thing Palin can do is to cancel her debate with Joe Biden. Washington needs “fixin'” and “shankin’ up”. We can’t afford to wait until January. We need her in DC NOW!

Keeping Track of Palin’s Lies

John McCain and Sarah Palin are telling so many lies about her record that it’s becoming hard to keep up with them. Palin’s compulsive lying about her past as even more pathological than W’s. Here is a handy list.

  1. Palin stopped the “bridge to nowhere.”
    No, she didn’t pull the plug until Congress had already cut the funding.

  2. Palin was always against the “bridge to nowhere.”
    Not exactly. She was for it before she was against it.

  3. Sarah Palin is a fiscal conservative.
    A fiscal conservative does not rack up $20,000,000 in debt for a small town. Nor does she bill the state of Alaska for staying at her own house, eating her own food or for trips to her husband’s snowmobile races
  4. Sarah Palin opposed earmarks.
    A mayor who opposes earmarks does not hire a lobbyist to obtain earmarks unless that mayor is a lying hypocrite.

  5. Palin sold the Governor’s jet on eBay and made a profit.
    No, she listed it on eBay three times but ended up selling it through an aviation broker at a loss.

  6. Palin fired Governor’s mansion chef.
    No. The chef, Stefani Marnon was reassigned to the Republican state legislature to cook for Palin’s cronies since as Governor, Palin prefers to work in Anchorage or Wasilla instead of travelling to Juneau.

  7. Sarah Palin won Miss Congeniality in the 1984 Miss Wasilla pageant.
    Really??? Come on….

  8. Update: 9/16/2008

  9. Sarah Palin’s teleprompter failed at the RNC and she had to “wing it” during her acceptance speech.
    “The teleprompter got messed up, I couldn’t follow it, and I just decided I’d just talk to the people in front of me, it was Ohio.” http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalpunch/2008/09/palin-and-the-t.html OK, she gave an effective speech, but why do they have to lie about the teleprompter?
    Is it because GOP voters just enjoy being lied to?

Alaskans Speak (In A Frightened Whisper): Palin Is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive, And Mean”

From http://www.laprogressive.com

“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.”

Racial and ethnic slurs may be “just Alaska” and, clearly, they are common, everyday chatter for Palin.

Besides insulting Obama with a Step-N’-Fetch-It, “darkie musical” swipe, people who know her say she refers regularly to Alaska’s Aboriginal people as “Arctic Arabs” – how efficient, lumping two apparently undesirable groups into one ugly description – as well as the more colourful “mukluks” along with the totally unimaginative “f**king Eskimo’s,” according to a number of Alaskans and Wasillians interviewed for this article.

But being openly racist is only the tip of the Palin iceberg. According to Alaskans interviewed for this article, she is also vindictive and mean. We’re talking Rove mean and Nixon vindictive.

No wonder the vast sea of white, cheering faces at the Republican Convention went wild for Sarah: They adore the type, it’s in their genetic code. So much for McCain’s pledge of a “high road” campaign; Palin is incapable of being part of one.
