Bullshit!

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 7, 2012

Federalism was not served, because the Libs are shameless. Gridlock in this case does not serve federalism. It serves an existing status quo that was shoved down the throats of the entire nation due to a narrow lead in the legislature and a complicit president that lasted less than two years.

Because the rules have already been applied, illegally I think, in Obamacare, gridlock is BAD! And because we will likely lose the Court, gridlock is an indirect validation of a one time tyrannical act by a willfully arrogant government that only existed for about 19 months.

So, Bullshit.

Oh, by the way, another SWATting.

Posted by mesablue on May 28, 2012

Via Ace.

SWATting the Ericksons.

Last week we spent a lot of time writing about Brett Kimberlin and the incident involving blogger Patterico where someone spoofed his phone number and told 911 he had shot his wife.

Tonight, my family was sitting around the kitchen table eating dinner when sheriffs deputies pulled up in the driveway.

Someone called 911 from my address claiming there had been an accidental shooting.

It wasn’t nearly the trauma that Patterico suffered, but I guess the Erickson household is on somebody’s radar.

Luckily it was two sheriffs deputies who knew me and I had already, last week, advised the Sheriff’s Department to be on the look out for something like this.

The PLANNED KIMBERLIN BOMBINGS

Posted by mesablue on May 28, 2012

Not actual bombings.

Not the bombings carried out by Brett Kimberlin that blew people up. Blew their legs off. Not those bombs.

No, these are the perceived as a victim, horrible hurt feelings — compared to a Planned Parenthood Bombing.

The Speedway Bomber has reacted to his weekend in the sun by releasing a few interesting responses.

Brett Kimberlin had the nerve to compare his outing this weekend on his 501(c) sites to say that he “knows what the Planned Parenthood bombings feel like.”

Not going to link his sites. Over 1.8 million dollars have already found their way towards his insanity. His limbs and life are still fully intact — it’s only his bomb leaving feelings that we have to worry about.

The person that actually planted bombs — is the victim.

Brett, does call out in this not in any way creepy video of — leaving another bomb on a train platform while his horribly un-autotuned voice unfortunately doesn’t scare us into wondering why we can’t find a way to grasp his narrow focus. Do yourself a favor and don’t click on the link. Seriously.

Whine.

We’re all victims.

Whine.

We’re all victims.

Screechy whine. Whine some more….
.
We’re all vic……lunatics who fought off jail rape with a lunch tray while screaming the “n” word and then bragged about it.

Oh wait, that was just something that you mentioned in the bizarre book that was written about you that sold a few copies that you thought could finance your new future — until it couldn’t. When my life story is finally told, they will be hard pressed to match the title of yours — Citizen K: The Deeply Weird American Journey of Brett Kimberlin

Sucks about the civil judgement from the widow of your bombing victim — it might cramp your style.

So, what to do?

I know — it’s not that hard.

You’re going back to court my friend — on different terms than you are used to. See, we won’t file frivolous suits. We will face you head on, with an expertise that you could only wish you had on your side when you were facing the thirty three felonies that you were convicted of.

Every single part of the game that you are used to playing has already been exposed in the public venue — what you are used to using as a tool of intimidation and extortion — we wait for it.

There is not a court in this land that you can find any credibility in now that your true background is known — again.

And then, we’re going to take all of the money that you shammed people out of and make sure that it goes back to your victims — right before you go back to prison.

You gave us a blueprint — shame on us if we don’t follow it.

Brett Kimberlin — amazing musical talent

Posted by mesablue on May 26, 2012

Not really.

All those years in prison made Brett Kimberlin an angsty boy with a horrible penchant for really bad rap.

It appears that sometime around 2006, several years after Kimberlin was released from prison, he joined a band named Op-Critical. The band’s music can best be described as liberal alternative rock and they claim some of it has been featured at ACLU and Amnesty International events. Their music mirrors that of other little known liberal bands who trashed bush in the later part of his presidency and would be unremarkable if it weren’t for the fact that one of the guys playing guitar and singing is a violent criminal.

Take, for instance, the Op-Critical song titled Fear. The song describes Americans being fearful and “thinking that the plastic bag maybe isn’t innocent” and how that undue fear is being used by Bush to control them. The lyrics mocking the fear of terrorist attacks would, again, be unremarkable for a late 2000s liberal band if they weren’t sung by a man convicted of setting off bombs in a small American town and the music video didn’t feature that bomber lurking around the Cleveland Park DC Metro station complete with shots of an unattended bag.

Horrible music videos — linky.

Thanks to MRC TV.

Now I can understand all of the money donated to Kimberlin’s “music” project — Barbara Streisand can spot talent from light years away.

Where do I sign up?

I love the smell of *Kimberlin in the morning

Posted by mesablue on May 26, 2012

This is *sweet justice…for a few hours, at least.

Kimberlin tops memeorandom for the day.

Never mind a Google search — yikes.

When Brett Kimberlin first came to my attention, I had no idea that someone/sociopath could be stupid enough to use public venues to paint himself into such a corner of shit quite so quickly.

Then I read about the Patterico SWATting.

THE NIGHT I COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED BECAUSE OF MY BLOGGING

At 12:35 a.m. on July 1, 2011, sheriff’s deputies pounded on my front door and rang my doorbell. They shouted for me to open the door and come out with my hands up.

When I opened the door, deputies pointed guns at me and ordered me to put my hands in the air. I had a cell phone in my hand. Fortunately, they did not mistake it for a gun.

They ordered me to turn around and put my hands behind my back. They handcuffed me. They shouted questions at me: IS THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE HOUSE? and WHERE ARE THEY? and ARE THEY ALIVE?

I told them: Yes, my wife and my children are in the house. They’re upstairs in their bedrooms, sleeping. Of course they’re alive.

Deputies led me down the street to a patrol car parked about 2-3 houses away. At least one neighbor was watching out of her window as I was placed, handcuffed, in the back of the patrol car. I saw numerous patrol cars on my quiet street. There was a police helicopter flying overhead, shining a spotlight down on us as I walked towards the patrol car. Several neighbors later told us the helicopter woke them up. I saw a fire engine and an ambulance. A neighbor later told me they had a HazMat vehicle out on the street as well.

Meanwhile, police rushed into my home. They woke up my wife, led her downstairs and to the front porch, frisked her, and asked her where the children were. Then police ordered her to stand on the front porch with her hands against the wall while they entered my children’s bedrooms to make sure they were alive.

The call that sent deputies to my home was a hoax. Someone had pretended to be me. They called the police to say I had shot my wife. The sheriff’s deputies who arrived at my front door believed they were about to confront an armed man who had just shot his wife. I don’t blame the police for any of their actions. But I blame the person who made the call.

Because I could have been killed.

The weirdest part of the whole thing was that I halfway expected this might happen. Because I was not the first one it had happened to.

Audio there of the fake call to 911 that got SWAT to show up at a deputy DA’s house in the middle of the night thinking that he might have killed someone.

Chilling.

Please read the entire post — it’s truly beyond what you can imagine.

Hmmm, convicted terrorist bomber/drug dealer turned liberal activist and recipient of millions in 501(c) money would never resort to tactics like this…

But, his stupid friends might.

One friend, maybe, who runs a fairly large leftie blog (not linking) and who is now backpedaling like a mutha to get out of Kimberlin’s shit shadow.

Interesting, at the very least.

Is this speculation? Reaching to make a point? Taking available information when someone who was clearly innocent and his family were pulled out of their house at gunpoint by a SWAT team in the middle night to point blame? Not the first time it’s happened, the SWATing thing. Turns out it’s a method of choice by the fake Anonymous/LulzSec wannabees.

Maybe.

But, I don’t make the rules. For the lunatics, there are no rules. Ex parte lawsuits against individuals filed over and over — hundreds of times to intimidate and bully.

To the point where employers are afraid enough of the psychopaths to terminate innocent people and others fear enough for their safety to have to leave the state.

Friends, this is just an extreme example of the tactics that the passionate progressives have used over the last few years — because, in many cases — it works. Squelching Free Speech in the name of the Greater Good.

We are at a very important point in the history of our nation. One might say — a turning point.

This entire mess comes up at a time when we should be looking forward. To work as hard as possible to un-elect a promise the world everything, while burying us in debt president.

But, we don’t own these maniacs. The progressive/pretend 99%’rs do.

Bought and paid for.

They revel in the method of distraction.

They funded these lunatics and looked the other way while they ran rampant as long as the taint of their actions could not be connected to them through layers of PAC donations and fake charities.
Well, no more. This one is going to blow up. This one is going to cause people that would not normally take notice to re-evaluate whether they should just sit back.

The Tea Party started over extreme discontent over obscene government spending and waste directed in the worst way possible at the worst possible time. We’ve already seen the initial results of that — thank you Nancy Pelosi.

Thank you, Brett Kimberlin….what a fitting honor it would be for this action to be named after you.

The Kimberlin Party.

The Kimberlin Affair.

Kimberlin Nation.

Or…..Kimberlin’s Bombers…..Oh wait, can you sue me for bringing up your criminal record again?

Or, more fittingly, for your first (possibly second) victim — Mr. Carl DeLong.

It was at Speedway High School where the freshman football team had just played a game and the players were still getting dressed. Hundreds of parents and students were either waiting in their cars or walking through the parking lot after the game.

A Speedway High School gym bag had been left by itself, as if forgotten by a player. One of the parents, Carl DeLong, 39, walked over to retrieve it when the bomb went off. His right leg was nearly blown off and his left leg and right hand were severely damaged. Doctors tried to save his leg but had to amputate.

Remember Carl DeLong.

My Opinion

Posted by Wickedpinto on March 28, 2011

It’s just opinion, and I admit I’m partial.

I like michelle bachmann, I think she is a great representative, and a good speaker for the basics of conservative principles

Let me put this in context, I think she is a GREAT REPRESENTATIVE, and a good speaker for the basics of conservative principles.

And just to make this Clear, to paraphrase Trey Parker and Matt Stone when doing commentary about when they went to Russel Crowes private debut of 20 aught grunt or whatever his bands name is. “she is a GREAT REPRESENTATIVE, and a good speaker for the basics of conservative principles.”

But Mitch Daniels can lead, even with his goofy unassuming attitude. Also, when even your allies are attacking you, then you know that you are a force. I know Palin knows that, but please sarah don’t run, and get behind Daniells.

Yeahp

Posted by Wickedpinto on March 25, 2011

Yeahp.

It’s not neocon hatemongers using any excuse to get the Residents case, but a reality. Even when clinton went into the balkans (we were in a lot more places than bosnia) He didn’t do so until he had already submitted a request to congress, and congress eventually approved. What this says about executive war powers is at best bizarre and at worst (though I disagree) impeachable.

Dear Mike Huckabee, Umm No. Sincerely Wickedpinto.

Posted by Wickedpinto on March 3, 2011

And even if he could win, he shouldn’t.

Huckabee says something stupid and self serving, Again.

Huck, even if you could win, it’s only because Obama is that much worse than you. How about you stop campaigning for a job noone wants you to have, tainting the primaries, and screwing everyone over, and you just come up with policy arguments, that don’t consist of you railing against the same old stale social con crap that you rode to failure last time.

If you want to help, then initiate policy discussions, engage the populace and promote your idea’s, and get the hell away from the primaries so that we don’t end up with McCain, AGAIN!

Really? What is it with this friggen guy? He won IOWA and was the favorite on social issues? He won Iowa because he was like a fat kid winning shopping spree at the local icecream shop as he nommed on “fried” pork chops, and gamed the system the same way obama did. YAY! You! You chased even romney out of the race, but not until after you screwed over every fiscal hawk in the primary with assistance.

JUST GO THE HELL AWAY!

Daniels Suspended Collective Bargaining in 2005

Posted by Viv on February 18, 2011

Governor Mitch Daniels (R-IN) rescinded collective bargaining for state workers on his first day in office in 2005.  The result? Ninety-two (92) percent of union members left the union.

No outrage. No protests. No Nazi signs and targets painted on his photographs. No legislators abandoning their duties. No dirty Chicago politics. No president criticizing his actions.

More results? After those actions, Daniels managed to bring Indiana out of its $600 million budget deficit in the first year and then maintain a budget surplus, even during the recession.

It works.

Lots of good idea’s,

Posted by Wickedpinto on January 18, 2011

But some are so good that they should have been done years ago.

Privatizing air traffic control, as other nations have done, saves $38 billion.

That is just something that should have been obvious for more than 20 years if not longer, and there is absolutely no excuse for it now with the nature of our GPS technology.  Not only can we do what other countries have done, we can do it at a premium because we own the networks. A lot of the other suggestions require accounting math, which isn’t the same as actual math apparently, but that one is just obvious. Not to mention it will reduce cost to airlines, allowing for more competition and greater accountability to existing firms to increase efficiency and allow for increased profits (as though many airlines make a profit) or reduced pricing. I see nothing wrong with either of those being the outcome of reducing cost of an irrational and unnecessary regulatory district.

Drawback? FAA will be virtually unnecessary. Too Bad, so Sad. I will get on the phone and dial whine one one and get them a Whaaaaaaaaaaaambulence.

Also, I’m not opposed to certain military cutbacks, but the F-22 NEEDS to be refunded before the infrastructure is completely gone. I don’t think we need bigger better carriers, I think we need bigger better armaments, I don’t think we need MORE tankers, I think we need better protected tankers, I don’t think we need MORE logistical vehicles, I think we need more efficient logistical vehicles. So some of the Defense spending? I wouldn’t mind seeing go bye bye (for instance, had no problem with Crusader being cut other than the research was done, but then I saw the per item cost, and I didn’t mind anymore. Paladin is perfectly fine.)

“THE SPEECH!”

Posted by Wickedpinto on January 12, 2011

I’m sure it will be treated reverently by the boot licking libel and slander slinging media that bashed Palin for 5 days.  They will undoubtedly describe it as the day that Obama brought us together as one again, after 8 years of bush, and 2 years of extreme partisan rhetoric.

I didn’t watch the speech, I read the transcript, I did flip over to watch the re-run of the 2008 inauguration of Obama, and couldn’t stand the cheering for more than about 90 seconds.  What I did see, Obama did look a little irritated with all the clapping, but I don’t get the sense (after reading the transcript) as a desire for everyone to exercise more decorum for those who were being “memorialized,” but rather that they kept interrupting his brilliant performance.

At first, while reading “live post” comments at various sites, I thought, “maybe he realizes just how unseemly this is, and is embarrassed.” and a lot of commenters said the same.  At first I thought, “well I remember G. Dub, getting cheered while giving a speech at ground zero.”  Then I realized.  Bush didn’t hand out T-shirts, Bush didn’t have a playbill, Bush had a rough outline, but not a script, not a teleprompter, not a podium, not a list of who was in the crowd that could be called out to demonstrate empathy.   I don’t have a cite, but the Secret Service was pissed that he did what he did when he went there, is how I understand it, and by speeking simply and briefly, he inspired cheers.  Not for him, but for OUR Nation, for OUR resiliancy, and in that unscripted, (worthy of a misty moment) when he says “I can hear _YOU_” really encapsulated why everyone cheered.  He was a leader of all of us, and he heard, and he would make sure that we all were heard.

That’s not a bad kinda cheer in a somber moment.

Now, for our current leader.

Obama had this planned from minute one, and if he was uncomfortable with the spectacle his followers were gonna create, he should have known not to have held it in a way that was indicative of a political rally.  His Fault.  If he wanted to mourn, he shouldn’t have created his OWN memorial of the victims, he should have coordinated with someone closer in a, “I think it’s important for The President to speak, my office will keep in touch.” or some other softer approach.  Instead, he hired out a stadium, recruited a bunch of 3rd year arts degree majors to do some silk screening, and stacked it with political appointee’s and props.

In the End Obama created that spectacle.

Also, remember a paragraph ago, I mentioned how in that simple ad lib of Bush’s he made it about all of us, and he is serving all of us?  Only to spend the next 7 years being called the most polarizing political figure in the history of the universe?  Well, this is 3 paragraphs from Obama’s “The Speech” (I guarantee at least one hack will refer to it that way.)  One that is billed as completely a-politcal.

Their actions, their selflessness, also pose a challenge to each of us.  It raises the question of what, beyond the prayers and expressions of concern, is required of us going forward.  How can we honor the fallen?  How can we be true to their memory?

You see, when a tragedy like this strikes, it is part of our nature to demand explanations – to try to impose some order on the chaos, and make sense out of that which seems senseless.  Already we’ve seen a national conversation commence, not only about the motivations behind these killings, but about everything from the merits of gun safety laws to the adequacy of our mental health systems.  Much of this process, of debating what might be done to prevent such tragedies in the future, is an essential ingredient in our exercise of self-government.

But at a time when our discourse has become so sharply polarized – at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do – it’s important for us to pause for a moment and make sure that we are talking with each other in a way that heals, not a way that wounds.

The first sentence is good, but the rest of the first paragraph is a call to arms to “act.”  (pardon for my martial rhetoric.)  He’s saying that we need to “honor” the victims with legislation after them is how I read it.

The second paragraph is about how ignorant we are of eachother and we need to have a “conversation.”  Well, conversations, at least honest ones, just occur, they happen between civilized people who want to clarify an understanding and find where they agree to disagree.  That isn’t what Obama means, “A conversation.” means “lets rehash this whenever it’s convenient for me, in the meantime you should shut up while I’m talking.”  (stole the last sentence from Goober.)

And the third paragraph is far more self serving and insidious:

at a time when we are far too eager to lay the blame for all that ails the world at the feet of those who think differently than we do

Notice, that those who don’t think as “we” do, are the same as those who don’t think as him.  So “we” have to pause, and heal and not wound.   He just granted cover for all of his surrogates to continue the brownshirt action against Palin, the Teapartiers, and fiscally responsible people who believe in the constitution as best as we understand it.

He had a few good portions, but to say it was A-Politcal, is an outright lie.  Those three paragraphs are blatantly political.

On a happy note, did anyone actually watch the best and most healing thing that has happened on the television since last wednesday?  4 straight hours of bones re-runs ran on TNT rather than the travesty of this “memorial.”  Boothe and Brennen, and some of the subject characters always make me smile while making me sentimental.  Far more uniting than this guy is, that’s for sure.

(I’m fighting to contain anger and exhaustion, so I will afix the links later, I think all one of you knows the blogs and references I will be linking, I just don’t have it in me right now.)

Here’s something the new congress can cut.

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 7, 2010

Governmental Organizations that are fundamentally hypocritical.

Seems like a fair start.

Tell me stop eating stuff, that you are telling me to eat, better yet, how about you stop telling me to do anything unless you are my mom, my wife, my employer or my Plt Commander, that seems like a fair layout for legislative temperance.

“If you wouldn’t let your mom, wife/husband(but we all know that women never listen  🙂 employer or Plt Commander tell you to do something in particular, then we shouldn’t pass any law that would ask someone to do something that their mom, wife/husband(yeah, husband, they are so full of authority) employer or Plt Commander wouldn’t ask them to do.”

I think I have a very confusing, and somewhat non-sensical campaign slogan there.

Vote Wisely

Posted by Wickedpinto on November 2, 2010

Forwarded to me from a friend of the family:

 

While walking down the street one day a Corrupt Senator was tragically hit by a car and died.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

“Welcome to heaven,” says St. Peter. “Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we’re not sure what to do with you.”

“No problem, just let me in,” says the Senator..

“Well, I’d like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we’ll do is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity.”

“Really?, I’ve made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,” says the Senator.

“I’m sorry, but we have our rules.”

And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him.

Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while getting rich at the expense of the people.
They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and the finest champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is having a good time dancing and telling jokes.

They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises…

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him, “Now it’s time to visit heaven..”

So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St. Peter returns.

“Well, then, you’ve spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now choose your eternity.”

The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: “Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell.”

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell..

Now the doors of the elevator open and he’s in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.

“I don’t understand,” stammers the Senator. “Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?”

The devil smiles at him and says,

“Yesterday we were campaigning, Today, you voted..”

Gawker, cesspool of the internet, flings poo at Christine O’Donnell

Posted by Beth on October 28, 2010

NOW I’m pissed (okay, this isn’t really new, but I’m extra pissed right now).

Gawker has just flung this despicable steaming pile of shit at Christine O’Donnell – an anonymous, paid coward saying he had a one-night stand with her.

Three years ago this week, an intoxicated Christine O’Donnell showed up at the apartment of a 25-year-old Philadelphian and ended up spending the night in his bed. Here’s his story—and photos—of his escapade with the would-be Delaware senator.

I CALL BULLSHIT.

Okay, so Christine O’Donnell is not God’s gift to the GOP. But this is absolutely the worst load of bullshit I have ever seen thrown at someone in a political campaign. Absolutely VILE, and reeking of bottom-feeding desperation, which is even more vile considering Christine O’Donnell is almost certainly going to lose anyway!

Worse, the accuser is anonymous (and misidentified in the comments, if you follow the links), and was paid for the story.   Furthermore, these “photos” never show him at all and don’t do anything whatsoever to corroborate his lie; they’re totally irrelevant.  He could have gotten pics of her sitting in church and said he picked her up at church for a one-night stand, and it would have the exact same relevance – as in, ZERO.  To nobody’s surprise (nobody with a brain, that is), there are no photos of any “escapade” at all.

And you know what? I’m about sick and fucking tired of stupid libs saying COD is anti-masturbation and campaigning on a pro-celibacy platform, ffs! She has said repeatedly that when she was younger that WAS true, but that was years ago when she “was a new Christian.”

I hate having to defend her against trash, but I am sick and fucking tired of STUPID LIBS lying or just being fucking stupid, and this disgusting Gawker shit is indefensible and totally out of line.  If this kind of bullshit becomes the new normal and is considered acceptable, America as we know it is dead; we will have nobody worth nominating running for office ever again.

I fucking despise Gawker even more than the Daily Kos, it’s the sleaziest left-wing hipster starfucking sleazy cesspool, ever. It makes traditional tabloid journalism (Enquirer, Star, etc.) look like the fucking Wall Street Journal.  FUCK GAWKER and their filthy bullshit.

I hope she sues those fucking pigs and has everyone from Remy Stern on down selling pencils on park benches for their next meals for the next few years.

FUCK GAWKER.


UPDATE:  Even the consistently inconsistent NOW has issued a statement condemning this filth:

Today the tabloid website Gawker published an anonymous piece titled “I Had A One-Night Stand With Christine O’Donnell” that takes the routine sexual degradation of women candidates to a disgusting new low. NOW repudiates Gawker’s decision to run this piece. It operates as public sexual harassment. And like all sexual harassment, it targets not only O’Donnell, but all women contemplating stepping into the public sphere.

It should be noted that they couldn’t defend her without shilling for Chris Coons, of course, but it’s better than nothing, I guess.  Still, it would be nice to just once see them issue an unqualified condemnation of such trash; you would think this would be the perfect opportunity for them to do so, especially as she is probably not going to win anyway.  *sigh*

 

**LAST update: I posted the stuff above when I was so pissed I couldn’t really write, just spit.  This says what needs to be said much more coherently; she nails it, as far as I’m concerned.  Additional righteousness in the comments there, too.  (Yes, at a lefty feminist blog.)  I’m pleased to see that Gawker’s abhorrent hit has been met with near-universal condemnation from the right AND the left.

Also, Viv’s comment “on a funny note” here wins.

Calling all liberals

Posted by mesablue on October 22, 2010

Explain, please…

This has to be one of the most insane things ever said by a politician, let alone the Senate majority leader.

I mean, it’s just. fucking. nuts.

Yet, it will barely make the news — if at all.

I wonder why.

Harry Reid saved the entire damned world — and then lost the election.

Gotta hurt. Such a great man.

And, his son loses too.

Oh…

His website is hurting right now, as well. Don’t know why, but it’s blammo.

I like to find my own stuff, but it’s late at night and the Ewok master actually posted something new.

My objections to Sarah Palin in 2012

Posted by Viv on October 18, 2010

First let me start off by saying that I think Sarah Palin has done a lot for the 2010 elections, while waking up some of the GOP. Plus, she is a good fundraiser.  She can fire up a crowd with her speeches like nobody’s business.  That said, I think it is a huge mistake to even consider her as a GOP candidate for 2012. Here is why.

1) Palin is a divider not a uniter.

The fiscal conservatives of the GOP cannot win a presidential election alone. The moderates of the GOP cannot win by themselves. The neo-cons cannot win by themselves. The social cons/Christian right-wing cannot win alone. The libertarians of the GOP cannot win. The independents can’t win. You get the picture. Each of these groups usually share some common ground, but their priorities are all placed differently and therefore party purity will never exist.

Purging the party of any of these groups is a big mistake. Pragmatism must prevail.

Palin has a problem helping and/or endorsing candidates with whom she is not ideologically equal.  There is a reason that Palin isn’t out stumping for Carly Fiorina (R-CA) to defeat Barbara Boxer (D-CA) in the Senate race. [Yes, I know she endorsed Carly.] She doesn’t want to have that bite her later with her pro-life base. Plus, Fiorina wouldn’t benefit substantially in a more moderate-voting California, by having a Palin endorsement.  Do you think Susan Collins (R-ME) would welcome the support of Palin? No, of course not. As a female Republican voter, I find this trend to be disturbing.

At a time when the majority of female voters leans toward the Democrats, it is imperative for the GOP to gain ground with women voters – YES, even the pro-life and/or pro-choice voters. [DISCLOSURE: I’m vehemently pro-life and have substantial creds on this subject. ] I am not a big fan of Republicans who are pro-choice, but I’m a realist and believe they have to have a place in the “big tent.”  Don’t you think that Collins, Snowe, Fiorina, etc… would vote for a Supreme Court nominee that may hold pro-life views among others? They have and they will.  Despite their occasional abhorrent votes on other issues, that does not make them unworthy of a united front by the GOP, including Sarah Palin’s support.

Naturally, I support a more conservative candidate (i.e., Rubio (R-FL) to claim victory over a less conservative Republican, but ONLY when that candidate is viable (and not down double-digits).  I frown on tossing away a possibility at a majority vote and the right to drive an agenda, just for the sake of party purity. Anyone who doubts this logic need only look at the historic numbers achieved by the best Republican uniter, Ronald Reagan. Palin is no Reagan.

2) Palin is not strong enough to lead the GOP in the ousting of Obama.

Why? Because like it or not, Obama is just better at the fluff speeches.  The reason we have Obama is because so many independents and moderates bought into the hope/change/dreams lines from Obama’s idiot boards.  Palin can give some entertaining speeches too, but not as well as Obama. And because she can’t seem to unite the factions of the GOP, she will struggle gaining the confidence of the independents and moderates, no matter how well she throws out the one-liners to bait them.

The incumbent has the advantage. [Also at play are Obama picking Hilary Clinton as his new VP running mate and an economy that may not recover while the Republicans have control of the Congress between 2010 and election day of 2012.] While Obama doesn’t do well in interviews and debates, neither does Palin. Again, she’s weaker when pressed in those ‘gotcha moments’ and the media isn’t going to start doing her any favors. Obama was their golden child and they will work hard to push him, especially if Palin is his 2012 opponent.

3) Palin will be slaughtered in the GOP primary.

You think that Obama and the media will be hard on Palin, just wait until she has to go head to head with the other GOP possibilities. Can you imagine her in a debate with Huckabee, Romney, Barbour and Daniels (just to name a few)? They are all governors who never QUIT their job. They will nail her on that.  Palin can hit the pulse of the talking points (reduced government, lower taxes, strong defense, secure borders, etc…), but when it comes to substance, she is going to struggle against the credentials of the aforementioned candidates. She will have to come prepared to not only defend her record but also bring appealing ideological solutions beyond the catch phrases.

4) Palin is sexy, but I think America is getting weary of sexy.

Maybe I’m jumping the gun on this one and giving voters more credit than they deserve. But I’m tired of the only candidates that seem electable are the ones who look good. I’d rather have a chunky Haley or a comb-over Daniels because they can bring real solutions to the table. They can bring more than just looking good in a suit (or pumps) and flashing a million dollar smile. Are we really this shallow? Haven’t we learned this lesson enough times? I think all the protests over the last few years suggest that we are tired of slogans and pretty faces and want substance. My concern is that Palin may not be able to offer the latter.

5) The whole “I’m just like you” meme is part of Palin’s charm, but also a flaw.

I’m a female Republican, so naturally it is exciting for me to have a candidate with whom I can identify. I liked Palin on McCain’s ticket because of that very reason, and because she brought executive experience. Also, she complimented McCain’s weaknesses on energy and immigration policies.  However, I don’t want a president who is just like me. I want someone better than me. I want someone smarter than me. I want someone who can communicate better than me. I do not want a victim, because I’m not one. Palin does occasionally take the “I’m a victim of media slant and establishment criticism” road and I am not impressed by that. While it is probably true, she doesn’t need to remind us of this fact. Very few Republicans get a fair shake in the media. Suck it up, girlfriend. Our nominee doesn’t have to be a Yale or Harvard graduate, but I can say I went to fewer colleges than Palin to get my undergraduate degree. Remember, I expect more.  We don’t want a snob or an elitist, but I think she will struggle with her credentials against some of the others who can also pull off the “I’m like you” too — Mike Huckabee comes to mind here.

I believe the GOP will need a candidate that can appeal to all of the GOP groups, not just the Tea Partiers, in order to defeat Obama. I will certainly support Palin if she is the GOP nominee, but I am admitting now that I will be disappointed if that is the best we can do and will be more than skeptical of her chances to beat Obama.
