Funny Palin Quotes

"I studied journalism, my college degree there in communications. 

 That's not even a sentence. 

 And now I am back there (back there?  back where?) wanting to build some trust back in our media. 

 How can you build trust in our media when you can't take unscreened questions?

 I think the mainstream media is quite broken and I think there needs to be the fairness, 
 the balance in there (the balance in there?) - thatís why I joined Fox.   Fair and balanced, yes."
     --  Sarah Palin talking to the GOP's Jay Leno,      Link

Tea Bagger leader paid by GOP

Tea Party leader paid by GOP run campaign to promote party goals.  One of the Tea Party's top leaders 
was recently paid $7,500 by a campaign run by a California Republican group to promote one of their ballot initiatives.

Mark Meckler is a spokesman for the Tea Party Patriots and had publicly distanced himself from the Republican Party. 
But state records show that he accepted the money for "petition circulation management" from the "Citizen Power 
Campaign Supported by the Lincoln Club of Orange County."

The Lincoln Club is a key player in state politics and this latest initiative is an ambitious act of political skullduggery. 
The Citizen Power Campaign is trying to put a measure on the ballot come November that would make it illegal for 
taxpayer money for political activity.  Why? Because that would remove a key source of funding for the public
employees union, making it more difficult for pro-labor candidates to get elected.

Subject: Unemployment Insurance 

The Repugs are claiming that unemployment insurance is free-loading 
and a burden on tax payers and the Dems do nothing to correct this.

Unemployment INSURANCE is just that, it is INSURANCE paid for 
by the very same people that are now unemployed. These people are 
only collecting the money that they themselves put into the pot.

Itís like paying for house insurance for 30 years and then 
getting money when your house burns down.

Are these people free-loaders also?

If only the Democrats would list the facts.

The teabagging handjobs are insane with rage over that blue ink
but they have NO PROBLEM with Bush's ocean of red ink.

Bush borrowed $1.8 trillion dollars from China 
and the Saudis to give the super-rich more money
and that ended up crashing the economy.

Obama's trying to create jobs and they f-ing 
hate him for being "loose" with their money.

Thanks to One Citizen for the graphic.

Evidence that Bush is Gay 
 Nothing wrong with that, of course


Bush has promoted gays to high office including Ken Mehlman formerly of the RNC. 
At his frat house, Bush became known as "a jock sniffer".
"Bush has lost the ability to control himself. He is broadcasting gaydar at 100,000 watts."
George earned the nickname Lips Bush for his skill at giving oral to frat buddies, circa 1965.
An old boyfriends, Anthony Berusca, told The Dallas Morning News that Bush was 
    "deeply conflicted about being gay, even somewhat self-hating."

 Maybe I'm gay because I hate him, too.

GOP cage-match strategy
 by Gene Lyons


Let's get one thing straight, as the nation's esteemed TV news networks appear determined to obscure 
simple facts for ratings-building melodrama. The U.S. Senate has already passed Obama's healthcare reforms 
by a filibuster-proof majority. If Speaker Nancy Pelosi can persuade a majority of House Democrats to pass 
the Senate bill, that's the ballgame. There's nothing complicated about it.

All this scare talk about Democrats using the "nuclear option" or launching a "kamikaze mission" is the crudest 
kind of partisan propaganda. Using the Senate's reconciliation process to make fiscal changes to a bill already 
passed was standard operating procedure under President Bush. It's grimly amusing watching Senate Republicans, 
who spent years telling Democrats to get over the suspect 2000 presidential election, now pitching hissy fits over 
the prospect of a simple majority vote.

How many times did Vice President Dick Cheney emerge from his Fortress of Solitude to break 50-50 tie votes
in the Senate? Eight times. As Paul Krugman points out, Bush used reconciliation twice to pass tax cuts for tycoons, 
increasing the national debt by $1.8 trillion.

Subject: Congress is a joke 

There's and old political joke that goes like this. "What is the opposite of progress? Congress!" 

But that joke has never been more true than it has lately. This is especially true of the Senate. 
I'm not sure which is worse, that a single senator held up government to settle a political score 
or the fact that the rest of the senate let him do it. Senators from both parties hold up important 
legislation and appointments to get their little piece of pork for themselves and their district. 

America is in big trouble and our elected officials aren't taking their jobs seriously. 
"The People" are supposed to be the owners of America. But to these politicians 
"The People" is little more than a slogan they use in their political ads.

Nissan recalls 540,000 cars
 Is Detroit eliminating the competition?


Nissan is recalling 540,000 vehicles worldwide to fix faulty brake pedal pins and inaccurate fuel gauges.

Nissan said no accidents or injuries have been reported, but the company is initiating the recalls based on 
three reports of brake pedal pins partially disengaging, hindering braking ability.

A separate, unrelated fuel-gauge issue can lead to inaccurate fuel readings in certain trucks and minivans. 
The gauge may show gas left when the tank is actually empty.

I talked to my old boss at the used car lot yesterday.

How is business?  
"Terrible, nobody's buying new cars so nobody is trading in old cars so inventory sucks.
  People want to purchase a car for $3,000 but I tell them Cash for Clunkers made them all go away."

Are the banks lending?
"Only to the very best blue chip customers - everyone else is cut off."

What's up with Toyota?
"They made some mistakes and mishandled the recall but they're still the quality standard.  
  Obama's in the car business now and he's eliminating the competition."

Maybe he was kidding, maybe he wasn't.

Bush - always the drunk

Subject: Health Care letter to my senators and representatives 

To: Boxer/Feinstein/Berman


I work for an insurance agent. I know how evil the Health Insurance/Pharma CARTEL has become. 
I'm also so old, I remember when health insurance was regulated, and NON-PROFIT, (pre-Reagan.) 

When it was a service, not a business. Being for-profit now, it's not in their best business interest to pay anyone's claims. 
It's that simple. Their collective greed has, and continues to destroy not only the national economy (effecting the world 
economy in the process), but millions of people's lives as well. As your constituent, I demand that if you fail to pass this 
legislation without either a public option/Medicare FOR ALL, or non-profit choice, you give up your lifetime health benefits
THAT WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, PAY FOR. I'm also asking you to stand with President Obama and get 
comprehensive health reform DONE. It's the only decent, moral, HUMANE thing to do, and our economy, our families, 
and our nation require nothing less. Otherwise, we deserve better than your sorry selves if you let us down AGAIN.

Is Rahmbo is going rogue?
 by Joe Conason


When Rahm Emanuel was riding high last summer, expanding his power while swatting down retarded liberals, 
the New York Times published a long profile presenting him as the undisputed master of Obamaís universe. 

According to that story, he was "more chief than staff."  He was taking names, kicking ass, setting policy 
and micromanaging down to party invitation lists. 

Nowhere did he or anyone around him complain back then that Emanuel could not make his will done in the 
White House, or worry that the president was not listening to him. That particular profile suggested that Obama 
himself had informally forbidden everyone from "cooperating with staff profiles," which was why "Mr. Emanuel 
declined a formal interview for this article." 

To describe someone as declining a "formal interview" sounds like another way of saying that he spilled 
everything off the record or on background, of course. Which seems to be what Rahm is doing these days, 
either himself or through cutouts.

GOP 2010 strategy: fear


The Republicans' strategy for motivating their base this year -- is fear. Fear of President Obama, fear of change, 
fear of some giant socialist revolution, of death panels, of government bureaucrats and liberals and anything else 
that might pop up. Still, you wouldn't expect the Republican National Committee to come right out and admit to that.

That's exactly what RNC Finance Director Rob Bickhart did, however, as part of a fundraising presentation. 
The presentation included several slides that portray the GOP's own supporters in a very negative light, 
giving the impression that the RNC believes its donors are stupid, and that it plans to treat them that way.

One of the slides divides donors into two groups -- major donors and smaller ones. The latter group, the slide says, 
gives for visceral reasons: "Fear" and "Extreme negative feelings toward existing Administration" are listed. The slide 
also tags this group with a term usually used in an less-than-flattering sense: "Reactionary." The major donors don't 
fare much better; they give, the slide says, for "Networking Opportunities" and "Access" and they're "Ego-Driven."

Another slide says: "What can you sell when you do not have the White House, the House or the Senate? 
Save the country from trending toward Socialism!"

Our braindead Democrats are going to stand there like statutes 
and let the GOP paint them in every negtaive color possible.

Why can't our side learn?

People say, "Both parties are the same" but that's not true.

One fights, one cheats, one steals.
The other party wets themselves in fear and crawls under a table.

If only we could find a way to inject them with some Bartcopism.

Disturbing ads from the past

This is the America that the tea-baggers want back.

Leno - tired, short on laughs 
 by Robert Bianco, USA Today TV Critic


All that's clear is Leno's not particularly straining to keep the job now that he has it again. 
Monday's monologue was detached, tired and short on laughs; Tuesday brought more of the same, 
including some of the same jokes and targets, from Russian Olympians to Toyotas, airlines and George Bush.

Isn't there an air of desperation to this whole, sad project? 
A going-through-the-motions feeling of retreat instead of advance?

What you have is a show that now simply seems to be too small for its platform ó and sadly adrift. 
Which won't stop it from sailing on again tomorrow, just as it did for 17 Leno-led years.

Here's to the next 17. 
Wake America when they're over.

NBC owned late night - I guess all my life.
But the idiots in charge decided to "fix" that 50-plus year winning streak. 

Law & Order bait & switch

NBC is truly the whore network.

For weeks they've been promoting the Kathy Griffin/Mariska Hargitay lesbian kiss on SUV.
They even released the clip and the kiss was just barely a peck on the lips, less than one second,
but in the episode last night they started to kiss ...and stopped before their lips met.

And just like the Toyota deal, this is NOT about the kiss, it's about NBC lying.

Of all the major networks, NBC is the worst.
I remember watching Homicide on NBC years ago, and the preview editing was done
to make you think one thing was happening, but in the episode the opposite was true.

Nobody lies to you more often than NBC.

I have a feeling Kathy Griffin is pissed about the bait & switch but she's trying to get 
an Emmy nomination out of this guest appearance so she's going to play it cool.

NBC you are standout whores in a whore-dominated business.
