Running Sarah Palin Thread of Hate & Doooom!

I'm liveblogging the RNC convention and the Giuliani/Palin speeches hereRegarding Gov. Sarah Palin, the press and the Angry Left remind me of those beetles in the film The Mummy - the pass over something in a swarm and it is destroyed and stripped bare...we must be reaching the climax of Palinsanity, or will do so tonight, because I don't see how this intense, unhinged hate can go much further. But haters always manage to surprise me...There is so much out there that this is going to be a … [Read more...]

Tucker Bounds & Campbell Brown

Reader gs was nice enough to locate this video of the brouhaha between Campbell Brown and the McCain Team's Tucker Bounds. I'm sure it's going to get lots of attention.My take: McCain either needs to get Bounds up to speed very quickly or cut him loose. He should have been ready for Brown's questions, and he should have been ready for her rather obnoxious "Jane Curtain Weekend Update" tone (a little nasally, there, too). He clearly wasn't. Her questions were fine; her tone was really … [Read more...]

Reluctantly blogging the convention – UPDATED

As regular readers know, I watch very little-to nothing by way of tv news, unless it's breaking, but I thought I'd watch a bit of the convention tonight. I'm still going to try. But honestly, after flipping from cable channel to cable channel and discovering I just couldn't abide any of those people, not on CNN, not on MSNBC (I used to like Matthews, but my GAWD he looks and sounds like a damn crank, anymore), not on FOX.Tossing the remote I bellowed, "Isn't there anyone I actually want to … [Read more...]

Wall-to-Wall "Palinsanity" & BUTTONS!

Buttons thanks to Shana!Althouse coined the word "Palinsanity" and one of her commenters made a palindrome to describe the whole movement of the left and the press: Harassarah....that would be, Harass Sarah. It's all they can do, because the left is clearly out of its collective mind over this woman, and they're only going to get worse. And it's all going to backfire on them. Big time. And the left is utterly destroying their own credibility with regards to women and family issues. As I … [Read more...]

Anchorpoll: Does Sex Ed Prevent Teen Pregnancy?

I just need to ask it.Let me state up front that I believe Sex Education is the responsibility of parents, and that a part of responsible parenting is comprehensive sex education: talking clearly, openly and often with your kids about human sexuality, natural urges, hygiene, masturbation, abstinence, forms of birth control etc, along with moral guidance reflecting your family's belief system or "humanist" ethics.Does anyone know what the sex-ed curriculum is in Alaska?Having endured sex … [Read more...]

Bristol Pregnant; watch "tolerant" & "intolerant"

So, Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol, age 17, is pregnant, and wants to marry the father of the baby.The 17-year-old daughter of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin is pregnant, Palin said on Monday in an announcement intended to knock down rumors by liberal bloggers that Palin faked her own pregnancy to cover up for her child.Hey, since Trig is only four months old, and Bristol is five months pregnant I guess the KosKidz can finally put the "it might still be a pregnancy … [Read more...]

Palin: Bad Mother, Bad Woman

What in the world has happened to liberal/Democrat values in the last 48 hours? It seems like the appearance of Sarah Palin on the GOP ticket has caused an immediate disintegration of all of the hard-fast rules and values that have been preached at us 'lo these many years.Palin was not a half hour in the ring, when a male reporter wondered, "Shouldn't she be home raising" that Down Syndrome baby. He needed to be reminded by a female reporter that a male politician would not be asked that … [Read more...]

Meyer: Americans, feel pride re Obama!

Dick Meyer, writing over at NPR (when we all know he should be out there promoting his excellent book, Why We Hate Us) says we as a nation - regardless of our political affiliations or which way we're voting - should feel proud, tonight, to watch an African American be declared the official presidential nominee of a major political party.I would hope that as voters listen to Obama's acceptance speech and watch his campaign, they will do so with pride no matter how they ultimately vote. And I … [Read more...]

When conventions were fun…

Supped out last night with some friends and one of them, a political maven, greeted me with,"have you been watching the convention? It's such garbage! Remember when it used to be fun? You'd have gavel-to-gavel coverage, you'd get to watch the platform fight - the roll call - it was great fun and you really got to see these people in action. It's all so scripted and polished and safe, now."Understand, this pal is a true TV News junkie - much more so than I ever was. She has always … [Read more...]

Pelosi to Bishops: drill your brains?

Wait, that can't be right. Nancy Pelosi cannot have respond to the rather heavy dose of correction she received from various and sundry Bishops and Cardinals, some of her colleagues in Congress and the US Conference of Catholic Bishops with an offer to drill their brains, right?Oh, wait! I see! She asked some of the "Drill here, drill now" people chanting in Colorado if she could drill their brains. Which seems like a strange remark - what does it mean, actually? Is she saying these … [Read more...]
