is substantially dumber, bizarrely crazier, and dangerously and arrogantly less aware of her

Sarah Palin is loved by Fascist dogs and the religiously-insane,
but among normal Americans, her approval rating is a mere 36%.
Excerpt: Wall Street and Americans' pocketpooks capped
their worst week ever with a wild session Friday
that saw the Dow Jones industrials rocket within
a 1,000 point range before closing with a mild loss.
Investors were still agonizing over frozen credit
markets, but seven days of massive losses made
many stocks tempting for traders looking for
Bush's Dow lost 128 points, giving the blue chips
an eight-day loss of just under 2,400.
Most people with savings lost about half of their value.
Excerpt: The lesson for Americans suffused with anxiety
and dread over the crackup of the financial markets is that the way you vote matters, that there
are real-world consequences when you cast that ballot.
For the nitwits who vote for the man they'd
most like to hang out at a barbecue with, look at how well your 401(k) is doing, or how easy it will
be to meet the mortgage this month, or whether the college fund you've been trying to build for your kids
is as robust as you'd like it to be.
Voters in the Bush era gave the Fascist Dogs
nearly complete control of the federal government. Now the financial markets are in turmoil,
top government and corporate leaders are on the verge of panic and scholars are dusting off treatises
that analyzed the causes of the Great Depression.
Mr. Bush was never viewed as a policy or intellectual
heavyweight. But he seemed like a nicer guy to a lot of
voters than Al Gore.
Have you ever seen truer words?
Maybe one good thing will come out of the Wall Street meltdown,
that you shouldn't vote like a f-ing dork.
The poor have the power to vote themselves a big raise - but they choose
Maybe now the middle class will vote their damn wallet instead of for
the taller candidate
Nobody is as stupid as the American voter.
maybe the meltdown will fix that - but super-stupid is hard to change.
"I'm beginning to worry about the level of
craziness on the Republican side, the over-the-top, stampede-the-crowd statements by everyone
from McCain on down, the vehemence of the crowds that McCain and Palin are drawing
with people shouting "Kill him" and "He's a terrorist" and "Off with his head."
Watch the tape of the guy screaming, "He's a terrorist!" McCain seems to shudder at that, he rolls his eyes...
and I thought for a moment he'd admonish the man. But he didn't. And now he's selling the Ayres non-story
full-time. Yes, yes, it's all he has. True enough: he no longer has his honor. But we are on the edge
of some real serious craziness here and it would be nice if McCain did the right thing and told his more
bloodthirsty supporters to go home and take a cold shower." -- Joe Klein,
Excerpt; Sarah Palin unlawfully abused her power as governor
by trying to have her former brother-in-law fired
as a state trooper, the chief investigator of
an Alaska legislative panel concluded Friday. The politically
charged inquiry imperiled her reputation as a
reformer on John McCain's Republican ticket.
Investigator Stephen Branchflower, in a report
to a bipartisan panel that looked into the matter, found
Palin in violation of a state ethics law that
prohibits public officials from using their office for personal gain.
Palin and McCain's supporters had hoped the facts
of her crimes would be delayed until after the election
to spare her any embarrassment and to put aside
an enduring distraction as she campaigns as McCain's
running mate in an uphill contest against Barack

Excerpt: Distracted by Bush's Wall Street crash, few people
noticed that the Justice Department released a scalding
indictment of this crooked administration over
the controversial firings of several U.S. attorneys in 2006.
Investigators from both the department's Office
of Inspector General and Office of Professional Responsibility
found that political pressure did indeed drive
the dismissal action against at least three of the nine federal
prosecutors abruptly fired. At the time, then-Attorney
General Alberto Gonzales insisted the individuals
were all dismissed for inadequate performance,
or failure to implement the President's law enforcement agenda.
But it appears the longtime pal and adviser to
President Bush was lying through his teeth. Turns out the
real reason some of the top federal lawyers were
removed from the job, according to the Justice Department
report, was that either the U.S. attorneys had
the audacity to prosecute Republicans or because they failed
to aggressively prosecute Democrats.
According to Randi Rhodes, who I wish I could
trust, the prosecutors were fired because they refused
to kick tens of thousands of likely Democratic
voters off the voting rolls. She said lots and lots of people
are going to be told "You
can't vote" on election day because of
the Rove scheme to defraud the vote.
Rove was in charge of firing the honest prosecutors
- why give him that job if it wasn't political?
The Bush bastards have laid a blueprint for crime
in the future which is: Commit so many hundreds of serious, global crimes that catching you becomes
a maze inside a riddle inside a conundrum.
Think how hard it would be for one person to compile a list of the Bush
Bastards Top 100 Crimes. You'd have to leave so many crimes out, like some "Top 100 Rock Songs"
list at RollingStone.com
If someone attempted to list Bush's Top 100 Crimes, they'd be flooded
with e-mails asking,
"What about this crime?" and
"You forgot these crimes."
And since Bush has gay boyfriends instead of a plump lady intern,
nobody cares about his crimes and Nancy Pelosi leads
the party of wimps who proclaim, "Impeachment
is off the table."
Bart, why cause trouble for a good guy like Dubya?"
Excerpt: Are the Republicans turning a economic devastation
into an electoral bonanza?
Greg Palast follows the path of investigation
laid out by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. - encountering Republican
Party lawyers, funders - and Karl Rove.
The GOP charges that the Democrats have registered five million
fraudulent voters, a claim backed by a recent
US government report. Palast meets the report's author
- who claims her words were turned upside down.
And they went to court to stop her from speaking out.
Democrats don't have clean hands either, as Palast
discloses: from the Acoma Pueblo, we find Natives
(almost all Democrats) who've had their ballots
illegally junked by local Democrats.
But whichever party attacks the poor, it's McCain
that's the winner.
"Overheated rhetoric aside, liberals (indeed,
human beings) had good reason to be furious at George W. Bush because of specific
actions he undertook, as a representative of the United States, which brought clear
harm to the nation. The fury directed at Obama is rooted in a hatred of the mere idea of him,
or what he represents - either politically or culturally. That's far less grounded in civility
or reality." -- blogger adaglas,
In other words, Republicans hate Obama because of the color of
The world hates Bush because of his wars, rapes, genicide, thefts,

My predictions (as I had to fire these off, before
the Markets open): the stock market will rocket
in the next 3 weeks (probably up 2000+ points),
the price of gasoline will fall to $2.25 per gallon
(it's already down to $2.75, in my area of the
country), McCain will pull out the "upset" (the fix is
already in), there will be 2/3 states (maybe
more) that the results will be highly irregular (fraud/stolen?),
and the Democrats will gain in the Senate and
House. After the election there is going to be a lot
of chaos and anarchy, and I have a good idea
where that's going to lead.
I hope you're right about the stock market and the price of gas.
I hope you're wrong about "the fix" and the McCain/Palin administration.

The rape kit stuff is actually worse than you're
reporting. She didn't bill rape victims just so she could
say she lowered taxes. Plus she spent more
on redecorating the mayor's office than she saved by
making rape victims pay for collecting evidence
of a crime committed against them.
She billed rape victims because the rape kit has
emergency contraception in it, and this religiously
insane handjob wasn't going to waste taxpayer
money on killing womb babies because it clashed
with her Invisible Sky Fairy worship.
Keep hammering these pricks - maybe it's time
to remind the masses that the beer baroness trophy wife
of Johnathon Sidney McCain the Third (esquire)
used a diplomatic passport (that John got her through
his political connections) to steal drugs from
her own charity. And that she still hasn't released her tax
information the way that Theresa Heinz Kerry
was forced to do when her hubby was running for pres.

And the hurdle the GOP press simply cannot clear
in its debunking effort is that the policy did exist
while Palin was mayor. Boxed in by the obvious,
overeager bloggers instead claim Palin didn't "support"
or even know about the policy and that Palin
did not personally bill the victims herself. (Strawman alert:
Nobody ever suggested Palin went around knocking
on doors demanding payments.)
Sadly for Palin partisans, they got schooled on
the Wasilla specifics by a 20-year-old blogger and junior
at George Washington University who did what
so many on the right can't quite pull off: fact-based reporting.
He proved without a doubt that Palin, as mayor,
signed off on the initiative that forced rape victims
or their insurance companies to foot the bill
for the post-assault exam kits.

Excerpt: In a statement on the huge state-sponsored salvage
of private bankruptcy that was first proposed last
September, a group of Republican lawmakers, employing
one of the very rudest words in their party's
thesaurus, described the proposed rescue of the
busted finance and discredited credit sectors as "socialistic."
There was a sort of half-truth to what they said.
But they would have been very much nearer the mark
- and rather more ironic and revealing at their
own expense - if they had completed the sentence and
described the actual situation as what it is:
"socialism for the rich and free enterprise for the rest."
