regarding inclusion of diverse populations in the Republican party,
"Yes, that's right. To lure African-Americans
into the GOP, Steele is offering "fried chicken and potato salad." Since he mentions Republicans should

Excerpt: Good observational humor comes from the concept
that the world is crazy but we can all be in on the joke.
It not only speaks truth to power, but also tosses
a banana cream pie at it for good measure.
Here's comedian Bill Hicks commenting on the rationale
behind the first Iraq War.
"People say 'Iraq had the fourth largest army
in the world.' Yeah, maybe, but after the first 3 largest armies, there's a REAL big fucking
drop-off. The Hare Krishnas are the 5th largest army in the world, and they've already got
all our airports."
And here's Dennis Miller commenting on the current
one: "Liberals should not overplay this WMD, because it's enough for a lot of us to see
those kids smiling on that street again."
Kids in Baghdad are smiling because Bush dropped
the Mother of All Bombs on their city?
Kids in Baghdad are smiling because Bush killed
perhaps one million Iraqis?
Dennis, I'm so old I remember when you used to
mock retarded thinking.
Bill Hicks on the first war: "You know we armed
Iraq. During the Persian Gulf War, those reports said: 'Iraq: incredible weapons -- incredible weapons.'
'How do you know that?' 'Uh, well... we looked at the receipts. But as soon as that check clears,
we're goin' in.'"
Dennis Miller on the current: "Next time we
go to war, don't give a specific reason for the war that the Left can eize upon and later flog
us with it ad nauseam, just do it. Remember, the first rule of Fight Club is that you don't talk
about Fight Club."
See the difference? (I mean, aside from the fact
that Bill Hicks has been dead for fifteen years
and Dennis Miller's career has been dead for
less than ten.)
Dennis Miller is too goddamn moronic to believe these days.
"Next time we attack a helpless country to steal their oil, don't
give a reason - just do it?"
Is that why your career died and went to Hell?
Because you think murdering the helpless is funny?
You used to have the Number One Prime Spot in all of television - the
job that Bill Maher has now.
These days, all you get is the occasional invite from FOX News to blow
"What’s worth noting about what Jeff Sessions
-- the line of questioning, was that being a white man, that’s normal. Everybody
else has biases and prejudices...but the white man, they don’t have any ethnicity, they don’t
have any gender, they’re just like the normal folks, and I thought that was a little jarring."

I don't believe Sarah ever did reveal the local
from Trigs birth after her negligent cross country
trip while in labor.
I searched the net on custody for Trig+Levi but
found nothing current?
Now this would be the straw in the GOP's back
if Sarah lied about Trig being her son.
Talk about negligent vetting for the second highest
office in the land, and talk about
a million dollar deal for Levi if he can prove
it with DNA. Absolutely scrumptious if true.

Excerpt: When Sarah Palin announced her resignationabandoned
her constituents by quitting,
she did so with the complaint that the media
was relentless in ridiculing her and her family.
Is that true?
Why do you and she blame "the media?"
Why can't you spell out who the offenders are?
Is it Katie Couric for asking questions?
She also said "the media" attacked her baby which
isn't true as far as I can tell.
Why can't these whiners name their assailants?
Dowd stood at the crossroads of choice: She could
pen a column acknowledging some of Palin's good works
- like taking on her own party, fighting corruption
and gaining unmatched popularity in her home state.
Or, Dowd could continue down the dirty road of
journalism as pro-wrestling and throw a mindless,
Hulk Hogan smack-down on Palin (thus proving
We know what a journalist would do.
Oh, can you suck me for your hypocrisy?
When the rumor leaked that Clinton might
have a girlfriend, did FOX News spend any time
acknowledging some of Clinton's good works, such
as eight years of peace and prosperity?
I hate to say something good about Dowd but at
least she's capable of telling the truth.
She rarely does it, but I've seen it happen -
have you sons of bitches ever told the truth even once?
Here is what Maureen Dowd wrote:
Caribou Barbie, nutty puppy, exquisite battiness,
erratic, egoistic, narcissistic personality disorder, grandiosity, need for admiration, lack of empathy, loopy,
solipsistic meltdown, strange, incoherent, breathless, prickly, thin skinned, country-music melodrama, reckless,
ga-ga, crazy like a fox, crazy, casuistry, girlish burbling.
Maybe that's because Palin is known nationwide
for being Caribou Barbie, nutty puppy, exquisite battiness, erratic, egoistic, narcissistic personality
disorder, grandiosity, need for admiration, lack of empathy, loopy, solipsistic meltdown, strange, incoherent,
breathless, prickly, thin skinned, country-music melodrama, reckless, ga-ga, crazy like a fox, crazy,
casuistry, girlish burbling.
BTW, I might have invented that pick-out-the-insults
You bastards probably owe me five bucks.
Dowd's column was entirely this ad hominem attack.
Such is the state of journalism post-liberal takeover.
Reason is dead and yellow journalism soars.Dowd
no longer even tries her hand at political analysis with intellect.
She has gone form Pulitzer Prize, to plagiarism
That might be true, but the FOX Whore News Network
was created to tell lies about Democrats.
You sons of bitches get paid to lie and to whore
out your false opinions sent in by Karl Rove.
Dowd may be shit, like you say, but she had shown
flashes of talent and honesty.
Can you worthless liars say the same?
I really liked that article, thanks for linking
to it --- but did want to say, when the author says she will lie
to her son about the reasons his daddy died –
that she will tell him he died as a hero for his country,
instead of the truth that he died as a sucker
idiot for Bush ---- then she will perpetuate the problem.
I swore when I gave birth to a son that I would
raise him so he’d never enlist in anyone’s army,
and telling him the exact truth about the military
(you’re a number, cannon fodder, they don’t give
a rip about you, there’s nothing patriotic about
dying for your country) is the one way to make it so.

Excerpt: U.S. Army Maj. Stefan Frederick Cook, the reserve
soldier who says he shouldn't have to go to Afghanistan
because he says Obama was never eligible to be
president, has had his deployment orders revoked, Army officials said.
Lt. Col. Maria Quon said Tuesday evening that
Cook was no longer expected to report Wednesday
to MacDill Air Force Base in Florida for mobilization
to active duty.
Cook is a reserve soldier assigned to an active
component unit for duty. Last week he filed a request in
federal court seeking a temporary restraining
order and status as a conscientious objector through his attorney.
So - killing is wrong if the president was born in Hawaii?
You KNOW this is about race, because John McCain was born in Panama
and if he'd
won the election and I'm sure Sparky the Cook wouldn't mind killing
for that warmongering old geezer.

Conason raises an interesting point. Why
would the people who control the Republican Party choose Palin
when she was so unqualified and McCain was a
72 year old cancer survivor who was likely to die in office?
If McCain wanted to get elected it seems like
he would have selected someone who was qualified.
He may have thought the VP candidate wouldn’t
matter much to voters. Still, if winning and patriotism
were his only motives, he would have selected
someone else. So why did he select Palin?
We had similar questions when GHW Bush selected
Quayle. We now know that he selected Quayle
because he did not want to promote someone that
could latter get in the way of a future Presidential run
by either Jeb or W. We also know that W.
selected Cheney, in part, because Cheney promised he
wouldn’t get in the way of a future run by Jeb.
So who was McCain trying to keep the path to the
Whitehouse clear for by selecting Palin? Who knows?
He doesn’t have any heir apparent. Someone
must have convinced him to select Palin even though it would
harm his chance of winning. Was it the
Bushes? Trying to keep a Presidential option open for Jeb.
I’ve often heard that Reagan was forced to put
Bush on the ticket in 1980.
In 1988, GWH inexplicably selects Quayle and
after the election, the Bush media turns Quayle into a laughingstock.
1992 to 2000, the Bush media tell non-stop lies
about Clinton, Clinton and Gore.
In 2000, W. easily beats Quayle and selects Cheney
(after he has had several heart attacks)
because he won’t be in Jeb’s way to run for President
In 2008, after the Bush media showed McCain what
it could do by destroying Hillary, I think they forced
McCain to pick a light weight or face a hostile
Bush media. In 2009, long time Bush operative, Fred Malek,
joins the Palin for President operation and someone
convinces her to quit he position as Governor.
Anybody got a better theory to explain this history
of Republican VP selections?
In many cases the religio-handjobs had to be appeased.
No crazy, gay-hating Bible-thumpers on the ticket?
No reason for the religio-crazies to get out and vote.
That's why they want to run on gay marriage every election.
