First of all….to answer the question….NO!…these morons think they are above reproach…
In the past I have come down hard on the conservatives for the dumb ass things they have said and even on occasions I have called Dems for their stupidity…..but the best so far has been the moronic, ill thought out comment by Senate majority leader Harry Reid:
“Instead of joining us on the right side of history, all Republicans have come up with is this slow down, stop everything, let’s start over,” said Reid. “You think you’ve heard these same excuses before, you’re right. When this country belatedly recognized the wrongs of slavery, there were those who dug in their heels and said, ‘Slow down, it’s too early. Let’s wait. Things aren’t bad enough.’ When women spoke up for the right to speak up, they wanted to vote, some insisted, ‘Slow down, there will be a better day to do that. The day isn’t quite right,’ “
Someone needs tro find the guy or gal that wrote such BS and take them out to the wood shed and whack their pee-pee….instead of having a substantial debate on the health reform measure, Reid reads the above from notes and gives the Repubs more ammo to change the focus of the bill. Good going you morons!
Once it was uttered then he gave all the mouths on the Right something to jerk off over…..they have the Dems fighting each other over abortion and now the majority leader has given them yet more ammo in the tactic of delaying the vote on the bill….
With all that said, I would like to point something out……Reid is an idiot! But I listened to his comments and have read all them stories on them….and as of yet I cannot see where the comment was leveled as an insult….he basically said that the present day opponents are using the same tactics as was used during the slavery debate…..he did NOT call anyone a racist…….he said the opponents to ending slavery used tactics like delaying, etc to try and beat the proposed freeing of slaves……..
But wait……is not the Repubs using the very same tactic today? Is not the fake outrage just a way to slow the debate? So basically, while what Reid said was moronic, it is never the less TRUE! Why would you, Sen. Reid, willingly give your foes more ammo to aid them in their tactics to kill the bill?
Could I have been wron…..wro….wr…….mistaken? I may never admit….but I digress…..
First of all the mules I am speaking of are the burdens that she is carrying……a candidacy and a racial one…..
Her book, Going Rogue, has been critiqued by damn near everybody with an opinion, and that includes me…..go figure……I said that it was a “get even” book and not a policy book that some in Conservative talk radio has called it….but I will say that she has a book that will make her wealthy, at least for now……but with each book signing she appears to be running for office…..it is more a political event than a book signing…..
Let me ask, if you were planning to run for the nomination of your party where would be the most logical place to visit?……(insert long pause for thought)……..Iowa…is the correct answer…..
500 people waited in a line at Sioux City’s Southern Hills Mall to meet the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee. But it was the location that set off a media frenzy, questioning even further Palin’s possible run for president in 2012.
Iowa’s caucuses traditionally kick off the presidential nominating season, and this was Palin’s first visit to Iowa, promoting only herself, since the election. Republican strategists have pointed out this stop on Palin’s tour was a sign not to be overlooked.
The Des Moines Register’s November Iowa Poll showed that more than two-thirds of Iowa Republicans view Palin favorably, as do about 60 percent of self-described conservatives. The numbers are on par with those of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who won the 2008 caucuses and has been considered a 2012 prospect. However, Palin raises doubts within the larger population. Also in that poll, a majority of Iowans said they had an unfavorable opinion of her.
As so many have reported….NO one goes to Iowa by accident…..especially a political person (not announced) like Palin. Is she or isn’t she…is the question….she is keeping her plans close to her chest….but it will noit be long before she cannot stand being out of the limelight and that will happen after the luster fades from her book…..
But does she have the chops for a political run? She is delusional and has a selective memory….two characteristics that make for an adequate candidate…..but can she swing people to her camp?….if you are old, white and grumpy….she will be your kinda candidate…..but the other people?
Chuck Heath’s quip that his daughter Sarah Palin skipped out on her studies after one semester at Hawaii Pacific College because she didn’t feel comfortable around so many Asians was intriguing not because of its blatant racism. The intrigue was that Palin didn’t deny she said it. In a backdoor way she confirmed that not only did she probably say it, but meant it. She said that she much preferred to go to school in Idaho because it “was more like Alaska.” Idaho could never be mistaken as the poster state for a multicultural population mix. The state is mostly white, rural, hard-line conservative, and in some places has been a fertile nesting ground for an assorted array of kooky, far out racist, para military groups.
Okay she does not like Asians or blacks or young voters……and Hispanics seem to have no use for her either….that leaves who? Old white grumpy Southerners……about the only people left in the real GOP…..since Huckabee has crapped in his chili, that would make Palin the logical one to take his place as the leader of the populist conservatives…..are you scared yet?
The hopes of all Americans, well maybe not all, but most Americans is that we have functional government…..as it is now we do NOT…….but thanks to Plain and Tea Baggers (HA!) that will be a long time coming……too bad that the people’s voice is only heard in small murmurs….they, the people, could change the way things work in Washington, but it will need them to grow a set a huevos and take back the country from special interests and morons….
Beyond all that hoopla…..it the Tea Party becomes a true third party in American politics then I have a candidate for them…….our Sista Sarah…..
