Your Angry God Will Not Save You Now

by Mark Morford

This much we know: Increasingly it is being proven that sexual orientation in general and homosexuality in particular are largely biological adventures, hardwired and pre-set in your genetic code by sly and well-groomed angels way, way in advance, back when you were but a twinkle in the eye of the moan.

I sometimes kid my wife about her “immodest” need to pose

leave a comment »

Sarah Palin isn’t only an immodest poser in the image below she looks like what she really is: a money grubbing ditzy babe!

She used to dress carefully. Now that she seems to be “in the money” that careful image has been replaced by this brassy, bejeweled, somewhat tawdry babe! Is that the image of a Presidential candidate or just some babe doing her thang out there for the folks!

This has been an up and down week for Sarah Palin in my humble view!

Sarah Palin, eleventh governor of Alaska and 2...

It sort of began for me with Tim Egan of NY Times opining about Sarah Palin and John Edwards being political grifters and sort of the bottom feeders in using politics to line their own pockets!

Then there is her campy vocabulary in her Tea Party speech, like “hopey-changey” and other gems in the dumb and dumber class. Reports from CNN seem to credit her with a “rousing speech”. I found her tone whiny, her vocabulary mind numbing and her style phoney!

Then there was my immediate disconnect when the Tea Baggers began ranting “Sarah for President” or words to that effect!

Is politics in the US more about pop emotions these days? He’s black and not my “cup of tea” so let’s go with Sarah’s sex appeal and “dumb and dumber” political discourse!

Pa-leeeese gimme a break!

Palin and Edwards – political grifters

with one comment

Sarah Palin addressing the Republican National...

Timothy Egan writes opinion pieces in the Editorial pages of the NY Times. I think of him as the kind of guy who connects things which are not very pleasant some times.

In this paragraph from today’s column, he describes the obvious trait that John Edwards and Sarah Palin share. They are grifters, playing the game for their own monetary advantage with an infectious smile as they cash in!

Palin and Edwards are two of an American archetype, opportunists playing to outrage while taking care of themselves. They are both attractive, with that lucky combination of genes that rarely lands on more than one member of an extended family. They can both hold an audience without saying anything of substance, or even making sense.

The picture is not pretty but truth has no hold with pretty!

I’m sure there are other caricutures of Sarah P, but this one caught my attention this AM in NY Times

Not exactly “news fit to print” but worthy of being printed I feel:

Looks like a pretty effective way of neutralizing those beauty pageant looks!

Dick Cheney, Vice President of the United States.

From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE…

Things for Which I am Thankful: 2008

Barack Obama will be our 44th president. John McCain will not.
Joe Biden will be our next vice president. Sarah Palin will not.
This will be George W. Bush’s last Thanksgiving as president
Dick Cheney will leave Washington 100% disgraced

Howard Dean’s vision
Those Democrats in Congress who fight for us
Purple states
Michelle Obama’s class
Olbermann, Maddow, Stewart, Colbert
That my spellchecker this year recognized “Maddow” and didn’t try replacing it with “mad cow” or “mildew.”

And there’s more at!

Why do I read and view video about Sarah Palin?

Tina Fey as Sarah Palin

Image by stevegarfield via Flickr

Via CNN’s Cafferty File, Andrew in an email about la Palin gives me a succinct and understandable explanation about what catches my attention these days:

However, when the incompetent are supremely self-confident, full of certitude, and absent of insight, it’s absolutely compelling.

She just doesn’t blink as she girl talks with awkward syntax, ill-formed spinning, brash prevarication with a touch of plain misstatementing.

I hate to say it but the crash scene sense of the whole Palin shtick drags me back to new performances of this too shallow mind striving to establish her creds for high political office. Each of her performances confirms the evident silliness of the whole thing that was exposed by Tina Fey‘s portrayal of Palin on SNL!

I’ve got a lot of time for Josh Marshall’s views at TPM

leave a comment »

Here’s his comment about all the Palin leaks from the McCain campaign et al:

As a big of an ignoramus as Palin clearly is, and as big a liar, I’m more than a little skeptical myself.

I tend to agree with that simply because those people, Davis, Schmidt etc gave little evidence that they practiced “real straight talk”. They seemed to believe in faking it!

Trashing Gov. Palin after GOP defeat

Miss Congeniality Wows the GOP Convention

Image by Mike Licht, NotionsCapital.com via Flickr

In my mind the most striking phrase being bandied about in reference to Palin’s VP candidacy is ‘WASILLA HILLBILLIES LOOTING NEIMAN MARCUS’.

The sense of this, especially HILLBILLIES LOOTING rings true for me. Every time I saw her on TV she seemed dumb and dumbfounded and then unblinkly strident uttering a string of inanities about all subjects. I sensed it obvious that she knew little about the world outside of Alaska and was amazingly incurious about it all.

There is little doubt in my mind that she is unblinkingly ambitious with vague designs on the highest office in the US.

I think that if the right wingnutery within the GOP have their way and put her forward as a “legitimate” candidate for 2012 that they will doom the GOP to deep doodoo! I hope that they are successful in this attempt.
