Comments From Cyberspace

I predict that Sarah "Caribou Barbie" Palin, after she gets her ass handed to her on election day, will use her new notoriety to get a show of her own. If she succeeds in seducing a network and sponsors into backing her, her show will be a short-lived disaster and she'll get fat, cranky, drunk and abandon her family to run away with the kid who knocked up her daughter.

You read it here first....................FC

Look for McCain to announce he's for a single-payer national health plan, transferring the Pentagon budget to infrastructure renewal and clean renewable energy and hiking taxes on incomes above $250,000. Oh, and he'll claim to be an African-American man, but that the VietCong beat the black out of him. Sarah Palin will promise free 24/7 fellatio service to white male voters. You read it here first........ FC (A source with the Palin/McCain campaign who did not want to be identified)

His (McCain's) poll numbers are dropping faster than Ann Coulter's panties at a Welcome Home party for the 5th Fleet!

......overheard on the Straight Talk Express, "Hey, look we're on the Road to Nowhere!"

Why does everything hang on a senator from Arizona? Shouldn't it be Bush who is handling this? (The financial mess)

McCain is in full meltdown. This is not going to be pretty.

Under the pressure of the financial crisis, one presidential candidate is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high. It is not Barack Obama.

John McCain recently blamed Barack Obama for the Wall Street mess. Stunning. The truth is the politics of the economy can be likened to a bus. The bus driver is the Bush Administration, and the rest of us, including the Democrats in Congress, are the passengers. Question: If the bus driver drives the bus off the cliff, how is that the fault of the passengers?..............Jim Gilbert

McCain needs to read his prepared rehearsed remarks. Is he senile or just incompetent to campaign? Impulsive and over the hill is a terrible choice for President. .......DAVID LAMBERT

I want to be clear and speak directly to those of you who LOVED that Palin interview. You're an idiot !

Don't you get it? I'm not insulting Sarah Palin, SHE IS INSULTING ME.

I thought he looked gracious and presidential; others may think he looked insufficiently tough. I think Obama more than held his own in this first debate, but if you're looking for a grumpy, sarcastic put-down artist as president, your choice is quite clear.

Republican principles

From the email at

Many thanks to Mainetalker for this original piece...

Republican principles:

* If you're a minority and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates you're a "token hire."
* If you're a conservative and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates you're a "game changer."

* Black teen pregnancies? A "crisis" in black America .
* White teen pregnancies? A "blessed event."

* If you grow up in Hawaii you're "exotic."
* Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, you're the quintessential "American story."*

Similarly, if you name you kid Barack you're "unpatriotic."
* Name your kid Track, you're "colorful."

* If you're a Democrat and you make a VP pick without fully vetting the individual you're "reckless."
* A Republican who doesn't fully vet is a "maverick."

* If you spend 3 years as a community organizer growing your organizationfrom a staff of 1 to 13 and your budget from $70,000 to $400,000, then become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new African Amerian voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, then spend nearly 8 more years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, becoming chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, then spend nearly 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of nearly 13 million people, sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Worksand Veteran's Affairs committees, you are woefully inexperienced.

* If you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, then spend 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you've got the most executive experience of anyone on either ticket, are the Commander in Chief of the Alaska military and are well qualified to lead the nation should you be called upon to do so because your state is the closest state to Russia.

* If you are a Democratic male candidate who is popular with millions of people you are an "arrogant celebrity."
* If you are a popular Republican female candidate you are "energizing the base."

* If you are a younger male candidate who thinks for himself and makes his own decisions you are "presumptuous."
* If you are an older male candidate who makes last minute decisions you refuse to explain, you are a "shoot from the hip" maverick.

* If you are a candidate with a Harvard law degree you are "an elitist-out of touch" with the real America .
* if you are a legacy (dad and granddad were admirals) graduate of Annapolis, with multiple disciplinary infractions you are a hero.

* If you manage a multi-million dollar nationwide campaign, you are an"empty suit."* If you are a part time mayor of a town of 7000 people, you are an"experienced executive."

* If you go to a south side Chicago church, your beliefs are "extremist."
* If you believe in creationism and don't believe global warming is man made, you are "strongly principled."

* If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
* If you have been married to the same woman with whom you've been wed to for 19 years and raising 2 beautiful daughters with, you're "risky."

* If you're a black single mother of 4 who waits for 22 hours after her water breaks to seek medical attention, you're an irresponsible parent, endangering the life of your unborn child.
* But if you're a white married mother who waits 22 hours, you're spunky.

* If you're a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton, the right-wing press calls you"First dog."
* If you're a 17-year old pregnant unwed daughter of a Republican, the right-wing press calls you "beautiful" and "courageous."

* If you kill an endangered species, you're an excellent hunter.
* If you have an abortion, you're a murderer (forget about if it happened while being raped.)

* If you teach abstinence only in sex education, you get teen parents.
* If you teach responsible age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

* If you're a Republican senator who solicits gay sex in an airport bathroom, you get to return to your job in the Senate and are encouraged to run for re-election.
* If you're a Democratic Senator who is out of public office and have an affair, your political career is over and your wife who has terminal cancer is to blame.

Still want to vote Republican?.. Wake Up America!--

Dear Barack

It's been week or so since I wrote you a letter so I figure it's time that I updated you on a few facts of life. For starters, I have been bored to tears since the completion of these stupid conventions, especially the Republican farce for a convention and it's your fault.

Here's why I think it's your fault. You're still trying to preach in response to those nasty attacks and it ain't workin' son. Personally I detest being preached to and that's pretty much what you have done all along. So get over the sermons already. Hell, you're even putting the damn Republicans to sleep.

Where's all that P & V that I hear you have been blessed with? Get it going son. I am too damn old to sit around waiting on miracles. The way I see it right now you are going to lose unless you get some serious kickass going.

Now I happen to come from a family with mixed heritage so it's really pissing me off to see Grandma Palin and her snide, nasty attacks on you and you just stand there chuckling, coming back with some nicey, nice preacher remarks. Now I think you might just have an idea what Sen. Clinton felt like campaigning against you, eh??

Nicey, nice is not going to work with these nasty bastards and you have to know that. Surely you can look back and see what those miserable cretins did to John McCain in 2000, to John Kerry in 2004. Do I have to say Max Cleland?

Come on Barack. You have to learn to fight back and you have to do it, like yesterday. It doesn't matter that McCain was a POW. After he was a POW, he became an adulterer. He dumped the crippled wife who had waited, hoped and cared for the kids for 5 long years. Since that time he has been an elite, multi-millionaire, (thanks to the Stepford Wife Cindy), who is so out of touch with the real world that the thought of him becoming president scares the hell out of Thad Cochran. A multi-millionaire, by the way who is collecting almost $60,000.00 a year as total disability for military service. If he is totally disabled why is he in the Senate and why is he running for the presidency?
I happen to think that McCain's POW experience is a negative. We don't know what they did to that old coot while he was lollygagging around the Hanoi Hilton.

Now enters Granny Palin.... Hell yes, I think that baby is her daughter's kid but that is of no importance other than the usual Republican lying and covering up their own mistakes, corruption, etc.

Granny Palin calls herself a pit bull with lipstick and she's proved that to be true. She appears to also be a female George Bush, only with the ability to speak in complete sentences. Based on what I have read of her history, she is as corrupt as Dick Cheney and meaner than a junk yard dog. She has every intention of sending this country backwards into the 18th Century. I have no doubt that this mean, vindictive woman intends to be president by hook or by crook. She will run the country while Granddaddy McCain drools away in the Library, only being awakened to sign whatever she puts in front of him. Sound familiar?

It's perfectly alright that Granny Palin has the options to make choices about her life, her child's life, etc., but she appears to think that the rest of the world needs her to make that decision for them. To that I say, Fuck you Granny Palin. I've seen the results of your decisions and it ain't a pretty sight.

Granddaddy McCain & Granny Palin need to mind their own damn business when it comes to our personal lives. We don't need the advice of a couple of adulterers. Family Values, my ass!

Now back to you. I must admit that I am not quite sure what to do but I do know that you have to do something. You cannot be nice to these assholes. You know their routine. Anything you say or do is unfair to poor 'widdle' ole Granny Palin according to the those GOP's (Goofamous Old Pricks).

Now I am going to be blunt (Sunday school up to now...LOL) I am sick to death of those damn fundamentalist, phony Christians. We sat around & allowed George Bush to place those quacks in every branch of government. Yee gods! Those incompetent, bumbling idiots have stunk up the entire government of these United States.

Have you heard how they prosecuted & convicted Governor Don Siegelman in Alabama on trumped up charges? Surely you know about the corruption in the Justice Dept., first Speedy Gonzales, who was not very speedy at all....Now Mukasey who is endorsing & covering up the crimes of the Bush/Cheney hoodlum administration. Another half dozen or more people sit in prison as political prisoners of these miserable SOBs.

Speaking of which, just what the hell will it take for you to think that Bush & Cheney should be impeached & removed from office? These brazen crooks have crapped on the Constitution of the United States in just about every way possible. Bush is reported to have called it just a goddamn piece of paper and he has treated it like just that ..... a piece of toilet paper.
What about that illegal war? What about the economy of the country? What about jobs? What about "We The People"?

Those bastards are attacking you, wanting you to scream racism. To your credit you have not fallen for that trick but I see no harm in you pointing out how the Republicans have left Black people out of their inner circle & will continue to do so. If I read correctly the Repugs had a grand total of 37 black delegates at that illustrious convention. Thirty-Seven people to represent millions of black people in this country. My, my.... how positively typical of the Republicans!

The Republican party is as racist as they come. I'm only surprised that 'king George' hasn't marched out of the White House with a cone shaped hat and white sheet draped around him. I'm not too sure that Tricky Dicky #2 hasn't done just that.

You have 'experts' (kittens) working with you Barack. Put them in the background and hire yourself some Pit Bulls. I'm sure that you can find a few out there. If I wasn't so damn old I would volunteer. Maxine Waters comes to mind. Think Shirley Chisholm! Think Samson versus Goliath.

Get a move on Barack. Those pretty guy looks will only get you so far. Biden and that flashing traffic light smile was a serious mistake. You can't afford too many more blunders like that one.

Now let's see some asskicking. I don't want to have to come down there(?) up there(?) over there(?) to kick your butt.
