Unbelievable. Rarely does one see a group go from perfect confidence to total self-immolation as quickly as Obama supporters have since the nomination of Sarah Palin.
I don’t even remember the name of that old guy who’s at the top of the Republican ticket, so completely has the full force of the Democrat apparatus been directed at the lady VP candidate. And wow, they’re really rolling out the nutbags.
From Salon.com: “Sarah Palin is a bit comical, like one of those cutthroat Texas cheerleader stage moms. What her Down syndrome baby and pregnant teenage daughter unequivocally prove, however, is that her most beloved child is the antiabortion platform that ensures her own political ambitions with the conservative right. The throat she’s so hot to cut is that of all American women.”
From highly regarded political thinker and thumb enthusiast, Roger Ebert: “Palin is a shallow, chirpy person with those vaguely alarming eyeglasses. Now her fans all want a pair. Remember back when women wore glasses that departed their ears in plastic swoops and swirls? My theory is, anyone who wears glasses that look weird is telling me something I don’t want to know.”
And a whole slew of attacks and rumors that are debunked in one easy (but lengthy) column on Pajamas Media, including:
- Yes, she is governor of Alaska. No, she’s not the lieutenant governor. No, she’s not currently mayor of Wasilla.
- Yes, she did want authority to have wolves culled from the air, because they were taking too many moose and caribou. Which people hunt for food in the back country in Alaska. No, she isn’t shooting them herself. I mean, not that she couldn’t, but I’m sure she doesn’t have time.
- Yes, it appears that she has a Big Dipper tattooed on her ankle. She lost a bet.
- No, she’s never been in any porn as far as anyone can find (and God knows I get enough Google hits on those very topics). I would think the Big Dipper tattoo would be a giveaway.
And many, many more. The most amazing thing is that the relentless assault on Palin continues even though it’s become obvious that the more she’s attacked, the more people rally around here. If this keeps up until election day, she’s going to be elected vice president, hottest mom in America, and chairman of every PTA in the country. Keep digging, Democrats!
