"The President, you know, they just put Bernie
Madoff away for life; the President's policies are Bernie Madoff times a thousand. He is taking a wrecking
ball to this society. The American people love this country. They love
its institutions; they revere the Constitution
and the Declaration of Independence. What the President is peddling is something utterly foreign. He's dragging us
into what de Toqueville called a 'soft tyranny.' And really I don't know what the limits are on the power of the presidency
anymore. They used to call Bush an imperial president, which was ridiculous, this is a real, live imperial
president, who wants to dictate light bulbs to what medicines you get, to student loans and credit card interest

Couldn't you attack Obama with fur, like you did Clinton?
Excerpt: Sarah Palinís jaw-dropping announcement that
she is quitting her job as Alaska governor before finishing
even her first term has divided Republican ranks
and the wider political community in a very familiar fashion.
Many establishment GOP operatives and political
commentators of various stripes were withering,
both about the decision and the way she announced
it ó in a jittery, hyperkinetic news conference that
rambled between self-congratulation and bitter
accusations at the foes she says are eager to destroy her.
Her wacly performance adds credence to the claims
of some associates that Palin ó burned by the intense
scrutiny on her and the crossfire that swirls
around her ó is so fed up that she's ready to get out of politics.
Even if it's only the small stage of Alaska politics
she hopes to escape, skeptics say Fridayís events also
diminished and perhaps even demolished what was
left of her viability as a 2012 presidential candidate.
But her defenders believed an unorthodox move,
even if risky, has a clear logic and may only further
increase her standing with conservatives who
donít care what establishment figures in or out of the GOP think.
Is this why she picked that idiotic fight with Letterman?
So she could say, "The media is against me?"
"There's something in Hillary as a model for
me, because Hillary, well she came in with a different kind of celebrity obviously. But there was a kind
of skepticism where she had to prove herself a certain way and also prove not to be a kind of a show horse,
but to be a work horse. And so I want to put my head down and get to work when I get there."
-- Senator-elect Al Franken (D-MN) Link
"Al Frankenís dirty secret is thatÖheís a big
policy wonk. I used to go on Frankenís radio show, all ready to be jocular - and what he wanted to talk
about was the arithmetic of Social Security, or the structure of Medicare Part D. In fact, the only elected
official I know whoís wonkier than Al Franken is Rush Holt, my congressman - and he used to be the assistant
director of Princetonís plasma physics lab... So what will Franken do to the level of Senate
discourse? Heíll raise it."
-- Paul Krugman, Link
Excerpt: The only thing harder to understand than Sarah
Palin's inscrutable resignation speech Friday was the statement
her lawyer released Saturday, threatening media
outlets with lawsuits if they reported allegations that she's quitting
because of a criminal investigation into the
Wasilla Sports Complex boondoggle.
Village Voice reporter Wayne Barrett broke the
story back in September, examining whether Palin supporters
who made money on the controversial sports-complex
deal helped the Palins build their home on Lake Lucille.
Max Blumenthal added details Saturday in the
Daily Beast. Alaska blogger Shannyn Moore has been on the beat, too,
and she's cross-posted some of her reporting
on the Huffington Post. But Palin's private attorney, Thomas Van Flein,
singled out the Huffington Post, MSNBC, the WaHoPo
and the NYWTimes in his rambling (like Palin's speech),
menacing letter -- when to my knowledge the Times,
Post and MSNBC had never mentioned the allegations of scandal.
Naturally, the lawyer's letter, with reference
to the scandal, made the Washington Post today -- just what Palin wanted?
Mention in the New York Times and on MSNBC can't
be too far behind.
I've heard and read some allegations that she's
quitting because of a
criminal investigation into the Methsilla Sports
Excerpt: Crying - you can get away with these days. But
quitting? Not until you absolutely have to,
and even then you might hold on for a few extra
But Palin didnít just quit. She quit and proceeded
to praise herself for doing so. This took a quintessentially
Palinesque form, combining an unjustified air
of selflessness with an unjustified sense of self-pity. "I thought about
how much fun some governors have as lame ducks:
travel around the state, to the Lower 48, maybe, overseas on
international trade - as so many politicians
do," Palin mused. "And then I thought: Thatís whatís wrong. Many just
accept that lame-duck status, hit the road, draw
the paycheck and 'milk it.' Iím not putting Alaska through that."
She is such a clumsy liar.
She said she didn't want to do the lame duck thing,
where you travel a lot and waste Alaskan's money.
But about 2 minutes earlier, she said she'd flown
to Kosovo to tell an Alaskan military unit
Wanna bet her jet stopped in London and
and Rome to "refuel?"
She's absoluitely clueless and 100% confident
that she's right.
Reminds me of a certain Monkey Dictator...
Excerpt: After girlish burbling about how "progressing
our state" and serving Alaska "is the greatest honor that I could imagine,"
and raving about how much she loves her job,
she abruptly announced that she was making the ultimate sacrifice:
dumping the state on her lieutenant.
Why "milk it," as she put it, when you can quit
it? "Only dead fish go with the flow," she said, while cold fish
blow out of town. Leaving Alaska in the lurch
is best for Alaska. She can better "effect change" in government from
outside government. She can fulfill her promise
of "efficiencies and ffectiveness" by deserting Juneau midway through
her term - and taking her tanning bed with her.
"We need those who will respect our Constitution,"
said Palin, who swore on the Bible to uphold the Constitution.
She said she canít fulfill that silly old oath
of office in the usual way because sheís not "wired to operate under the
same old politics as usual."
Naturally, she dragged the troops in, saying that her trip to see wounded
overseas "fortified" her decision to give up
because "they donít give up."
Excerpt: Huckabee deemed it "a risky strategy," adding
that "if she did get out because of a feeling of getting chased,
that's not going to stop if she stays in politics."
He also questioned the way the resignation was
announced, saying, "You don't call a press conference to create
questions, you call one to resolve them.
If that had been the case for me, I would have quit about the first month?
Been there, done that.? One of the things you
have to do is decide, 'Look, they're not going to chase me out.'"
"The danger that Sarah Palin faces," said Huckabee
"is people who say, '"Look if they chase you out of this
it won't get any easier for you."
So - here's one way to look at it:
The Palin lovers are angry with her for pulling
such a boneheaded and suicidal stunt.
No matter what, she's "Sarah the Quitter" now.
But those who didn't like her are now pouring
on the praise.
They like that she self-destructed so they're
all smiles and grins.
"I am deeply disappointed that the Governor
has decided to abandon the State and her constituents before
her term has concluded." -- Sen. Lisa Murkowski
"A good point guard drives through a full court
press, protecting the ball, keeping her eye on the basket and she knows exactly when to pass
the ball so that the team can win. And I'm doing that." -- Palin, with a straight
" Good point guards don't quit and walk off
the court." -- John Weaver, senior
rethug party strategist, Link
"It just really doesn't pass the straight-face
test... All this clouds her ability to run
for office in the future." -- Joe Scarborough
(R-Intern Killer), Link
"I've always said Sarah Palin's political ambition
combined with her intellect is like putting a jet engine on a golf
cart. Today she proved it." -- Shannyn Moore,
"Her epistemology is good." -- Pamela Geller,
I had to look up epistemology, so you know
Palin had to look it up.
It means the ability to process knowledge
Sure, that's what Palin's known for - her big brain.
"If Palin is anything like I think she is (know
she is), Obamaís treasonous presidency is responsible for this. She, like all patriotic Americans, is shocked
by what is happening. Obama is destroying this country. She knows it. We all know it. We need a leader. She is answering
our call. She did not quit. She is going to get into the fight to save America. Watch what happens." - -- Pamela Geller,
who could be right, Link
Never underestimate how much the right-wing hates having "one
of them" in the White House.
Excerpt: AEG Live, the team behind the King of Pop's 50-night
stint, want the rock supergroup to alternate shows with Abba.
Both bands - who have sold 600 million albums
between them - have been offered big money to reform.
Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, and John Paul Jones
have been approached.
They played their only concert in 19 years at
the O2 in 2007 and are seen as one of the few acts who could rival Jacko.
His This Is It tour was due to
start at the London venue on July 13.
AEG face multi-million pound losses if they cannot
fill the slots. A source said: "Only Michael Jackson could sell out
50 nights at such a big arena, but Led Zeppelin
and Abba combined might just rival him. There is huge money on the table."
But if you're already super-rich, what constitutes

When's the last time a priest was found innocent

to a worldwide, serial-rape system that
used a shell game to keep the families of innocent
boys in the dark about the "new priest"

This Catholic Rape Ring has operated for perhaps
of years - Oh - and they continue to operate even after getting caught hundreds

Excerpt: An enthusiastic crowd came out Saturday to welcome
W. for his first Oklahoma appearance since leaving the White House.
"Heís an awesome guy,Ē said Mark Dennis of Oklahoma
City about Bush. "I love him. Iíve got a lot of respect for him.Ē
He said the country "is a lot worseĒ now with
Bush gone from the White House.
Ray Griffin of Vici said he came because he thought
Bush was a good president.
"He led with his heart,Ē Griffin said. "He was
an honest man, and he did the best he could.Ē
Griffin gave Bush high marks for his work in
keeping the country safe from terrorist attacks."
The next time Texas threatens to secede, we should insist they take
Oklahoma with them.
We'll need a few weeks to pack, but we need to cut Oklahoma loose.
Bart, "Go crazy??? She is crazy.
I think it has to do with her house, no way in
hell did Todd and some of his buddies
build a 4000 sq ft house in their spare time.
And with no records, I built my house 16 years ago,
and can document every dime. They can't tell
where anything came from or what they paid for it.
My guess is that she was offered a job somewhere
in the Lower 48 making many multiples of her current salary
as Governor of Alaska, and she jumped all over
it. That "four yeah's and one hell yeah" was the response to Sarah
saying, "hey, gang! How'd y'all like to
move to Palm Beach, Florida?" So what's the job? "Analyst"
at Fox "News"?
Welfare queen at a right-wing "think" tank?
Probably nothing more extraordinary than that.
I think it has to be some scandel that's about
to come to light. So far, the two best contenders that I've seen
are a dead she-male hooker in the trunk of Todd's
SUV or Palin has chronic gingevitis. Take yer pick :)
Maybe it's about to come out that Sarah is NOT
Questions about the construction of Palinís house
are not new. An
article by Wayne Barrett at the Village Voice offered many of the same speculations that are
now being presented as possible explanations for Palinís resignation.
If these allegations turn out to be accurate,
Palinís problems would be ironically similar to
the scandal that got Ted Stevens.
The FBI is looking at the records of the building
supply company that provided the materials for her mansion on a lake.
The same company that provided materials for
the 13 million dollar sport comples for Wasila.
The largest ever construction in that town and
it put them in serious debt.

Remember the speculation about the Down Syndrome
baby and how Sarah was back at work 3 days after
giving birth to a preemie and people questioned
if it was hers? I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't hers - Bristol
wanted out so bad she hooked up with Levi.
Or maybe Bristol and Levi have been at it for a while.
Regardless, somebody somewhere might be sitting
on some DNA results that she'd prefer to keep quiet.
Whatever it is, I hope we find out. I don't
wish ill on too many people,
but I'd like to see this one go down in flames.
I'm going the baby route.
Thanks to James
I think it's the parasitic worms she got from
eating undercooked moose finally reaching
her ancient reptilian brain stem. Sarah will
be living with wolves by this winter.
I think she's dumb as a rock.
She doesn't realize that you don't quit your
first term as Governor to run for President in an election that's
over three years away. She could have used
the last few months of her term to build her record a little more
- but, she's too fucking ambitious to even waste
a few more months in the job her people elected her to.
Imagine if Obama had quit his job three years
in to run for President... I just don't think the primary would
have gone the same. Every politician is
ambitious, but she just made her self so transparently ambitious that
whatever electability she had, she's lost.
Kevin in Texas
My guess is Faux News offered to give her a show.
She fits right in with those morons.
Sheís crazy like an arctic fox, or at least her
handlers are. She gives up governorship of one of the least important
states so she can set her sights on 2012.
At least, thatís what I want to believe. The truth might be somewhere
that and the fact that sheís such a monumental
fuckup that she could make Gee Duh look like Karl Rove in comparison.
BTW, I live in Honduras and Mel Zelaya is just

follow through with same) unlike our panty-wetting Congressional Democrats
who donít want to rock the boat.

She can get a show on Fox News, write a book
and reap the financial rewards of being on the
fundie rubber chicken circuit and not be
beholding to anybody, like constituents.
All she did was secede from Alaskan politics and
expose her hypocrisy. People like little Willie Kristol
will love her for this. Normal people will think
itís a skit from SNL. She a very odd duck and sheís
head over high heels in love with herself.
And if she went away, who would Greta stalk?
She believes she is bigger than Alaska. She already
had the ego, and with so many sycophants whispering
in her ear since last year, she wants more. More
attention, more power, and more money.
Especially the money. Alaska was holding her
She is not going away.
I"ll bet she's already been shopping for new
outfits for her speaking tour.
This woman is so surrounded by yes-people and
is so deluded, she will run for president.
It is all about money and putting her failed and
possibly corrupt record behind her.
Failin' Palin is probably going to head some
GOP propaganda machine funded by Rupert Murdoch.
Michael Steele's job is probably safe from
her as as she is after greater riches.
Cutting the governorship ties allows her to become
far more wealthy and independent now.

The Wasilla town thug is requesting the court
allow him visitation with both of his children with Bristol.
As they say in Jersey, "Whoa!!"
Maybe she is pregnant from some other than her
so she wants to be out of the limelight for the
next 9 months.
Maybe she's pregnant with a Wasilla Meth-head.
My guess is that new Palin home on Lake Wasilla
built with the help of a construction company
is about to crash on Sarah just like the one
that fell on the Wicked Witch of the West. She awards them
a no bid government contract and gets a new house.
This is the way things get done in Alaska.
Just ask her buddy Ted Stevens.
Or, like a lot of these Repugs in the news lately
she could very well be bat-shit crazy.

Follow the money.

Palin all in for 2012?
We can only hope, but it ain't going to happen...to
her lack of ability she's now added a lack of stability...
3/4 of a term as Governor won't get her thru
the Republican primaries, let alone the general...she'll never
have an answer worthy of the questions.
There's a shoe about to drop...or she's headed
to broadcasting...or she's really as vapid she appears
and she's just not havin' fun anymore...I'd go
all in on the trifecta....
She is resigning so that she, Todd, and the kids
help Maw Johnston bring in the summer meth crop.
Only she knows the dirt that would be turned up
by the ongoing ethics investigations.
She's hoping to short-circuit the investigations
by making the findings moot.

Bradblog Okay, I've now been able to get independent information
from multiple sources that all of this precedes what are
said to be possible federal indictments against
Palin, concerning an embezzlement scandal related to the building
of Palin's house and the Wasilla Sports Complex
built during her tenure as Mayor. Both structures, it is said, feature
the "same windows, same wood, same products."
Federal investigators have been looking into this for some time,
and indictments could be imminent, according
to the Alaska sources.

I think that Rupert Murdoch flashed a suitcase
full of $1,000 bills in front of Sarah Palin's face and she couldn't resist.
I'll bet you a donut that Palin has her own FOX
cable show before the end of the year.
It will be a 60 minute program filled with war
mongering, hatred, racism, lies, half truths, greed, and intolerance.
This has the hallmarks of a politician slinking
away before the shit hits the fan.
Another shoe is about to drop, but what is it?
She quit because Karl Rove, Cheney, etc. decided
a long time ago that she was not going to be leader the GOP.
Maybe they even threatened her, I don't know.
But it's been clear to me that the real of the power figures of the
have been out to bring her down since her bid
for VP. And that's fine by me, because I shudder to think of
a President Palin, I really do.
She subscribes to the "It's OK if you're a Republican"
principle. Like a greedy Gop-er she went too far and got busted.
Rumors says her ugly lake house was slush-funded
through monkey-business and the Wasilla Sports Complex project.
Bristolís pregnant again, or at least has been
perhaps while Bible Spice was showing up around
It is not for the good of Alaska.
She is not that noble.
Perhaps the legislature, which has been riding
her sorry ass since the election, has discovered something
that would further embarrass them and her and
that bastion of corruption, the GOP and they offered her
a one time get out of jail free card and told
her to resign or be impeached.

Or the haunting memories of thousands of others

The Iraqi people suffered the greatest loss of
