Transcript:

Chuck Todd: Mike Murphy, lots of free advice, we’ll see if Steve Schmidt and the boys were watching. We’ll find out on your blackberry. Tonight voters will get their chance to hear from Sarah Palin and she will get the chance to show voters she’s the right woman for the job Up next, one man who’s already convinced and he’ll us why Gov. Jon Huntsman. (cut away)

Peggy Noonan: Yeah.

Mike Murphy: You know, because I come out of the blue swing state governor world: Engler, Whitman, Tommy Thompson, Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush. I mean, these guys — this is how you win a Texas race, just run it up. And it’s not gonna work. And —

PN: It’s over.

MM: Still McCain can give a version of the Lieberman speech to do himself some good.

CT: I also think the Palin pick is insulting to Kay Bailey Hutchinson, too.

PN: Saw Kay this morning.

CT: Yeah, she’s never looked comfortable about this —

MM: They’re all bummed out.

CT: Yeah, I mean is she really the most qualified woman they could have turned to?

PN: The most qualified? No! I think they went for this — excuse me– political bullshit about narratives —

CT: Yeah they went to a narrative.

MM: I totally agree.

PN: Every time the Republicans do that, because that’s not where they live and it’s not what they’re good at, they blow it.

MM: You know what’s really the worst thing about it? The greatness of McCain is no cynicism, and this is cynical.

CT: This is cynical, and as you called it, gimmicky.

MM: Yeah.

Now I got some shit from quite a lot of people when I shared my initial reaction to McCain’s Token Woman VP Nomination. Not so much in these blogs, but in other forums. I was told I was bringing in my “preformed opinion”, and was personally attacked when I said this was a poor choice. That this was a gimmick, a gambit, the most cynical and offensive nomination I have ever seen…

But here you have actual CONSERVATIVES making those same exact judgments. Now, I want to know if people are going to start questioning Peggy Noonan’s education. Are they going to question the political persuasion of REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST Mike Murphy?

Sarah Palin is a bad choice. You don’t have to be a Democrat in order to see that, believe me. In a fair and just world, this would ruin McCain’s chance of winning. In a sane world, people would think…

Hey, why didn’t he actually research his choice for VP? Is he usually this careless in making decisions?

There’s a reason people are bashing John McCain. Thanks to the digital age, one can see McCain provides a lot of material. And you know what? He deserves it. When you’re running for president of the United States, you have to be on point, at all times.

ESPECIALLY if you happen to follow “Duh-duh-Dubya”!!!

Wah! You just worship Obama cause he’s a great speaker, and has millions of followers, blah blah blah… did you know he’s a Muslim too?

First of all, it would be fucking nice to have the leader of my country to be able to complete a fucking sentence. I don’t know, I kind of miss that after these past 8 years. Millions of followers? Gee, I wouldn’t go that far, but the fact that he’s popular means that people like him. People vote for who they like more. That’s the point. Complaining that you are losing is… well… just that, I suppose. (Yeah, that sentence was doomed a long time ago, ha ha) Then of course, is the cherry of the “argument”. Some email rumor or complaint about religion, either the Muslim lie or the Rev. Wright propaganda. Same GOP talking point routine. The only thing that changes are the variables. It’s getting a little old… LIKE MCCAIN!!!

ha ha, I kid you old people. 😉

Anyhow, the religion arguments are ridiculous to me considering what Sarah Palin has to say to her church, or what John Hagee has to say about Catholics, or what Jerry Falwell’s beliefs are… since McCain had no problem speaking at Liberty “University”.

But I’m digressing.

My point is that McCain has a long record of the choices he’s made. That’s how we judge people. And when someone makes a questionable choice, people are going to speak up. You may not like what’s being said, but that doesn’t mean the person saying it is necessarily a jerk.

I’m an asshole, so I don’t count. (ha ha)

But even assholes can be right. And once courageous men can fall… Randy “Duke” Cunningham, anyone?

I stand by my first impression of Sarah Palin. And as more information comes to light, I’m actually shocked that I wasn’t flat out wrong. In fact, it seems like she is even WORSE that I thought! I now know that I’m not the only one who sees her nomination as a cynical sexist gambit. I’m not the only one insulted by it. And I sure as hell am not the only one that sees through this bullshit.

I’m really hoping my generation pays attention. Look, I don’t think Obama’s gonna “save our country”. I don’t think ANY politician can do that. I just think this country is sinking. And sinking FAST. I see McCain as an accelerant to the process. I don’t think he’s evil, I just think he makes poor decisions. Sarah Palin was the last straw for me. I mean, it’s quite obvious he didn’t do his research. If that’s not worthy of a disqualification, then I don’t know what is. People can deny it all they want, but the fact remains the same. McCain was not up to the simple task of finding a decent candidate. Period.

I’m not saying that Obama could stave off the impending decay. I just think he won’t fuck things up as much as McCain would. I’d rather have a smooth talker at this state. Mad countries hate us, and a smooth talker will get us more than a bristly curt old man.

let’s chalk another one up for abstinence only education!

Posted in out of the gene pool, politics, religion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 2, 2008 by angrygirl

Oh my. Sometimes I wonder if this whole life thing is a morality test. Like, if I make one too many jokes about easy targets…

Well, I’m sure I’ll get mine someday as well.

Speaking of getting some…

That Bristol Palin… Taking an example from the Jamie Lynn Spears, “How to make your mom look ridiculous” technique, and done got herself pregnant as a teen. Oh, an UNWED teen…

Man, does that crack me up a little. Cause it sure is nice to watch some Conservatives wring their hands trying to not admit that their ideas were…like usual…

WRONG!

I mean, talk about total Moral EPIC FAIL!!!

See, that’s what so god damn funny about these wannabe political types. They think knowing just one religion makes them qualified statesmen. So they talk about abortions, gays, abstinence. They make up some shit to scare the little children. And think they should be praised for their delusions! Unfortunately, Americans got Puritans in their blood, and tend to promote morons cause they have some uncanny ability to not be as ashamed as they should for their overwhelming lack of a single coherent thought.

You know the kind. The ones that are all high and mighty. They have a stupid idea, that doesn’t make any sense and usually relies on keeping information from people.

Like how Bush dragged our country into Iraq.

Or how millions of future Bristol Palin’s are kept in the dark about birth control.

Makes sense. These people think they should be praised for “Dark Ages” morality.

Aye, there’s the rub!

What is it with some people who are not only wrong about mostly everything, but they expect to be praised for making a mistake and continuing in that same direction. Just like how the Republican Yes Men will sing a song in unison, praising the “values” of young Bristol. (Damn, I got over a decade on this girl and think I’m too young for a baby!)

They’ll tote some made up values to cover up their own disgust. Cause according to the conservative stance on issues like these… sex is only for procreation, and is to be between husband and wife. That whole marriage thing. Oh, but they won’t slam Bristol. She’s the daughter of a Republican. Only Democrats are “fair game”.

I feel bad for this girl, I really do. But damn. Didn’t her mother teach her anything? I’m not for waiting til marriage, but at least use some protection! And she’s still in high school.

Yeah, I think this reflects poorly on Momma Sarah. I mean first off…

What kind of “mother” waits to give a speech after her water broke… then takes an 8 hour min flight to Alaska? All this while KNOWING she was gonna have a special needs child! Then, she wants to run for Vice President? Shit, I refuse to get a pet cause I have a full time job! If your child goes out and has a child herself at way too young an age, most likely, Mom, you fucked up!

Take care of your fucking kids first! Damn, obviously something is fucked up. Why else would her teenage daughter be out there having unprotected sex? Oh yeah… abstinence only.

How can you talk about family values when apparently, you don’t seem to want to spend any time with them? People like her spend more time lecturing about the evils of dancing, than seeing that her own kids are probably wanting some fucking attention.

She probably named her kids such ridiculous odd names so she’d be less likely to forget their names!

Ha ha, and to think that John McCain tried to compare Barack Obama to Britney Spears, when his VP’s daughter was emulating Jamie Lynn Spears!

“i ain’t ever votin fer a n****r”: why is this election so close?

Posted in politics, yupster with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2008 by angrygirl

Ah, the end of August… the Democratic National Convention is wrapping up, and you can practically see the inner racists bubbling to the top.

“Oh shit! I didn’t think he’d actually make it this far…”

Right now, the presidential election should not even be close.

NOT EVEN CLOSE!

It should be painfully obvious that Obama blows McCain out of the water. On so many levels.

He’s smart. Remember what it was like to have a smart president?
McCain is a luddite. That’s bad business, period. Meanwhile, Obama knows more about modern tech than I do. And I sorta work in computers and am under the age of 30. That’s fucking impressive.

STOP BEING STUPID. The rest of the world fucking hates us. Normally, I wouldn’t give a shit. But now that religious fanatics (other than the ones already living here) are actively trying to kill us, um, I’d like the cooperation of the rest of the world. I’d rather just be defending against some radical groups than everyone else. Don’t you think the average Iranian would be less likely to hate us if our President DIDNT make jokes about bombing them?

How could anyone possibly vote for someone who’s kind of ok with the hellish 8 years of this Bush administration? Shit, McCain voted what… 90 something % alongside the “president”? AFTER all the shit Bush did to McCain in the 2000 primaries? That’s not a maverick, that’s not a leader, that’s a BITCH.

Older people, I’m sorry but anyone who doesn’t know what google is, has no business being the leader of even a girl scout meeting in today’s world. No seriously. That’s enough of the idiots and luddites. McCain can’t quite grasp “the google”, huh? So, basically everyone reading this blog has a better understanding of the internet than someone running for the most powerful position on the planet. And apparently, a lot of you people are ok with that?!?!?

How out of touch do you have to be? It’s not like google is brand spanking new, its TEN YEARS OLD!!! Shit, maybe if he googled more often, he would have realized that the Anbar province “successes” happened BEFORE the surge. I’m sure he hates youtube. I mean, didn’t he realize that all those video clips from prior years would come back to haunt him? I mean, the Republican party had the nerve to call John Kerry a flip flopper! Not only is he ignorant of “the google”, unaware of how friggin popular youtube is, and you think this guy is going to make an educated decision on net neutrality?

You want to see out of touch?

Now I assume he’s talking about immigrants and jobs going overseas, but let’s look at the example he gave. $50/hour to pick lettuce? Sign me up! Shit, I’d LOVE to make 100K by picking lettuce. I mean, it won’t make me $5mill, which is what McCain thinks is rich, it won’t buy me 7, 8, 9, or 10 houses.

What ever happened to decent character analysis? Seriously. Why doesn’t anyone else seem to question this man’s integrity about… caving into Bush, caving to the religious right, trying to cave to the extreme right. yet somehow gets away with the misleading nickname, “maverick”?!?! How is that not a perfect example of OPPORTUNISM or LACK OF INTEGRITY!

Obama should be kicking his ass up and down the electorate…

but he’s not…

Last night I got to witness a perfect example of how friggin racist even democrats are. I was over my boyfriend’s friend’s apartment last night. The 3 of us were gathered to watch the convention. Our host gets a phone call from one of his friends. This guy, let’s just call him “Strom”.

Back in 2004, I used to hang more with “Strom” cause I was cool with his girlfriend. Back then, I was an assistant director for MoveOn.org’s GOTV campaign. Yeah, I was kinda high up there. But anyhow, I was touring the country before being finally stationed in Florida. Before I left, “Strom” and my friend made a little care package for me. All anti-Bush, anti-Republican stuff.

Shit, even after I returned from the great stolen defeat, for the past few years its been,

“Yo, wtf is up with these Republicans? Why are they so fucking stupid? How could anyone vote Republican?”

His words, not mine.

So now, after 8 years of bashing Bush and being all about the Democrats… now that Obama is the nominee…

“Eh, I’ve been leaning more towards McCain.”

“What? WHY?”

“Michelle Obama’s speech had racial undertones, I didn’t see it, but my dad told me”

Then I remembered. Oh yeah, his girlfriend doesn’t like black people. Which is funny because she’s a Pakistani Muslim. Oh NORTH Pakistan, my bad… she’s LIGHTER.

The two of them really are similar in that aspect. I’ve heard them numerous times insinuate that black people are somehow “different”. Or “not as smart”. They take the false Duke rape allegations, and condemn an entire tint of skin because of it.

Kinda like McCain calling all Asians “gooks”.

It’s weird. Growing up realizing that, “yeah… mad people are racist…friends and family”

But living in NY made me really think otherwise.

“Oh at least here, in the city, people know better…”

Nah man, it’s everywhere. And you know what, a lot of hipsters, yuppies, yupsters, liberals are fucking racist too! It’s a soft kind. They know to speak PC, but its the type of white dudes that talk differently to black dudes. Like all black people are “hood”. That sort of shit…

I think a lot of closet racists didn’t think Obama would really get this far. Oh sure, mad people say they’ll vote for Obama, but let’s see how they really are once they go to the voting booth. I bet you they don’t even realize their racism. That or spoonfuls of denial and self forgiveness. They’ll come up with some stupid made up thing, like saying Michelle’s speech was filled with “racial undertones”. Yet when asked to clarify, it’s always some pathetic excuse that makes no sense.

Christ, these are people who have been against the Iraq invasion since day 1! How could you POSSIBLY be for McCain if you disagree with this war? That makes no sense.

Honestly, I think a lot of people have an inner redneck that feels Obama is too “uppity” and should be “put in his proper place” or some shit like that. I’m not saying all McCain supporters are like this. But Obama should be kicking the shit out of him right now. And I really can’t see any other reason why.
