Sarah Palin is like a bad movie

Her "handlers" are protecting her from the press, reports AP here. The story read,

Reporters were kept at a distance when she made a campaign stop in Philadelphia, although Palin took one question about the $700 bailout agreement.

Why kept at a distance? What are they afraid of?

It's obvious. Like a bad movie that studios are afraid to premiere to the press, Palin is a bad politician Republicans want to keep out of sight as much as possible. Out of sight, out of mind.

But Palin's projected role in this country is too great. If it were up to me, the Republican Party would be penalized for making such a stupid choice as Palin is.

There's one way they can be penalized. It's called voting for the other candidate. Widgets

Did McCain say an expletive during the debate?

What does a suspended campaign look like?

Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly says it looks like a regular campaign. (Thanks to Brien Jackson of Below the Fold for pointing this one out.)

McCain's trailer trash running mate

It's all out in the open. Sarah Palin is not only dumber than a fence post, but her family wouldn't know the White House from the outhouse.

Let's start with her interview with Charles Gibson on ABC. It's here:

The most astounding and mentally deficient thing she said came in a question from Gibson on hether the U.S. as a member of NATO would need to come to Georgia's aid in case of war, Palin said,

"Perhaps so," reported CNN.

She continued. "I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you're going to be expected to be called upon and help," she said.

The ENQUIRER has learned exclusively that Sarah's oldest son, Track, was addicted to the power drug OxyContin for nearly the past two years, snorting it, eating it, smoking it and even injecting it. And as Track, 19, heads to Iraq as part of the U.S. armed forces, Sarah and her husband Todd were powerless to stop his wild antics, detailed in the new issue of The ENQUIRER, which goes on sale today.

THE ENQUIRER also has exclusive details about Track's use of other drugs, including cocaine, and his involvement in a notorious local vandalism incident.

“I’ve partied with him (Track) for years,” a source disclosed. “I’ve seen him snort cocaine, snort and smoke OxyContin, drink booze and smoke weed.”

The source also divulged the girls would do anything for Track and he’d use his local celebrity status to manipulate other guys “to get them to steal things he wanted.”
I don't think we need another reason not to vote for the McCain trainwreck.

Where's Sarah???


She wasn't on "Meet the Press" or "Face the Nation" or the Stephanopolous show or even Fox News this Sunday. Every other candidate was.

Is she hiding? And who or what is she hiding from?


The brilliance (and the downside) of picking Palin

Democrats need to know that Sarah Palin was, from a Republican standpoint, a brilliant choice.

First, her tiny resume also accentuates the criticism Obama has been getting about his. Don't mention the fact that Obama's actually means something, though, where hers is weak.

Second, she also seems to be "of the people," another of Obama's traits. Never mind that without the TelePrompter and a staff of writers, she'd have stood on that convention podium going, "Duh .. duhh ... duh..."

John McCain sold out on this pick. She's everything he supposedly doesn't believe in.

But the Democrats can attack her in several ways. First, her inexperience. Yes, indeed. It's there for all to see.

Second, her personality. There have been charges she tried to have books she didn't agree with banned. There have been charges of racism from this statement attributed to her that she said about Obama beating out Clinton: "So Hillary beat the bitch."

Her husband's had a DUI, her daughter is unmarried and pregnant -- two big no-no's in the GOP playbook.

She's a trailer trash governor who could be one heartbeat from the presidency.

Does that scare you? It should.

Sarah Palin on the Obama nomination: "So Sambo beat the bitch"

  Alaskans Speak (In A Frightened Whisper): Palin Is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive, And Mean”

by Charley James –

“So Sambo beat the bitch!”

This is how Republican Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin described Barack Obama’s win over Hillary Clinton to political colleagues in a restaurant a few days after Obama locked up the Democratic Party presidential nomination.

According to Lucille, the waitress serving her table at the time and who asked that her last name not be used, Gov. Palin was eating lunch with five or six people when the subject of the Democrat’s primary battle came up. The governor, seemingly not caring that people at nearby tables would likely hear her, uttered the slur and then laughed loudly as her meal mates joined in appreciatively.

“It was kind of disgusting,” Lucille, who is part Aboriginal, said in a phone interview after admitting that she is frightened of being discovered telling folks in the “lower 48” about life near the North Pole.

Then, almost with a sigh, she added, “But that’s just Alaska.” (more at the link)
