Mud mud mud. Fake mud, since there isn’t a lot of real mud to throw around. Lies.
Shrill. Yes, I agree. It’s an unfortunate physiological fact that Gov. Palin has a nasal and shrill speaking voice. Edie McClurg redux. I wonder if that’s why she didn’t make it as a newscaster? Her voice is even more grating to my ear than Sen. Clinton’s, and that’s saying something. (OH MY GAWD, listening some more, her voice is terrible! and the snark isn’t going to play well to anyone but the adoring, rigid conservatives, I don’t think. It’s not becoming.)
Lies, off the bat. Lies about Obama’s tax plans, energy plans, record. Just because you say it, doesn’t make it so.
This elite-bashing!! Hey why would you want to elect the people who excelled at learning at tough schools? Let’s elect the people who went to third-tier schools, or who came almost at the bottom of their class at a really good school (oh, and he was a Legacy, too).
What is wrong with being elite? isn’t it better than being ordinary? what’s the opposite of elite? low, ordinary, common. Homespun? nothing wrong with homespun. In being a proponent of elitism, which I am, I am espousing excellence. I believe in competence and I believe in excellence. Which isn’t any kind of put down of class or anything else except willful ignorance. I don’t champion the lowest common denominator. I greatly prefer to be the best, rather than the worst.
I wonder, by the by, if she got a fair price on that “luxury jet” on eBay to repay the people of Alaska? and is she planning on eschewing Cindy McCain’s luxury jet whilst campaigning?
MY UNMARRIED TEENAGE PREGNANT DAUGHTER! LET ME SHOW YOU HER! OH HERE’S HER BABY DAD–BOYF–FIANCÉ! LET ME SHOW YOU HIM! OH WAIT NO DON’T TALK ABOUT HER YOU L33T MEANIES! (nice to see that she or her people reads the criticism: she finally held her “4-month old Down syndrome child” publicly. The one whose life she horrifyingly risked by flying home to Alaska from Texas after her water broke. There’re some Family Values for ya!)
And hey, Rudi, when is the last time a Presidential or Vice-Presidential candidate had a 4-month old “special needs” infant at home? it may be an unfair charge, but it’s unprecedented, and I think it’s a fair question. Maybe Todd is really great at infant care. Well then, tell us so. The fact is that in 99.99999% of cases, an infant’s mother, not father, tends to it for the first 6 months or a year. Well, at least in civilized countries that have parental leave.
And “Hottest VP”? that’s right, that gal’s a real firecracker, isn’t she?
Jeeeebus. Who’s sexist, again?
