The Dangerously Angry Crowds of McCain and Palin

In the past, politicians with honor would correct and shape the crowds who attended their rallies when they shouted things that were incorrect or unfair to their opponents. But in the past two weeks, McCain and Palin have been egging their crowds on in ways that are loathsome and potentially dangerous to Obama and his

Transcript of Palin, Biden debate

I grabbed the transcript of the debate because I want to go back and read it later to go over Joe Biden’s answers. I spent a lot of time focusing on her, (mainly because of the bingo game we were playing) that I didn’t get all the nuance the Biden provided. I know he gave

Courtesy of Adennak.com: With some choice words from Aden Nak: I’d like to do a bit of a run down. A list, if you will, of the things we’ve learned about Sarah Palin from her very limited, groomed, handled private interviews with Charlie Gibson and Katie Couric.

What Palin reminded me of

Palin’s cutesy “You betchas” and folksy expressions were painful to watch. I thought Tina Fey’s “finger guns” were a bit over when I first saw her impression, but after watching the debate last night, they were dead on, and a really damning impression. As one commenter said on the MSNBC poll – “It’s like going

Biden debates McCain because Palin didn’t show up

I’ll have more commentary in the morning, but that was my initial impression of the debate — Biden took on McCain on every single answer because Palin didn’t bother to actually answer any of the questions, and instead fell back on buzz words and drivel and cutesy, folksy nonsense. I thought it was a clear

A couple more links

I think the media’s obsession with Palin is pretty out of line with the reality of what’s going on in the election right now — lots of McCain lies and distortions of the facts that seem pretty desperate — and Obama raising a record amount of money in August — so I’m going to lay

Using the Sexism on the Left

Zuzu has an interesting post at Shakesville about how the choice of Palin may be an attempt to use the unchecked sexism within the Democratic Party against it: Right on cue, the sexist attacks against Palin began on the left– which the McCain people were undoubtedly counting on. Let’s look at how McCain’s selection of

Sarah Palin and John McCain’s Judgment and Health

For progressives and Democrats, there’s lots to dislike about the GOP VP choice Sarah Palin. As Melissa McEwan notes: For the record, there is plenty about which to criticize Palin that has absolutely fuck-all to do with her sex. She’s anti-choice, against marriage equality, pro-death penalty, pro-guns, and loves Big Business. (In other words, she’s

Election 2008 – Sarah Palin

Barack gave a great speech last night. Happy to be voting for the guy. Let’s get this party started. On Sarah Palin as McCain’s VP — I don’t think that will do what he thinks it will. I know a lot of disenchanted Hillary supporters, but none of them want to vote McCain in the
